WOOT! *pumps fist*

 

Just won a new Encore Optimus Prime on eBay, $36! My old original G1 OP can now rest, as the new guy will take up the cause to destroy the evil forces of the Decepticons.

 

I've recently installed 6 new tires and some new chrome on my original Prime, such as the bumper/grill and stacks, but his leg chrome and fuel tanks are still heavily worn, not to mention his decals, paint, and plastic. The trailer's a little rough, too, some bad magic marker detailing from 20+ years ago looking like not such a good idea now. This new one is going to be AWESOME! He will remain utterly unmolested.

 

I remember playing with that Prime all the time back then, altho I can't actually remember when I got him. I'll remember this one, tho. Yay online commerce!

Cancelled my order at HTS today cause I found pegs filled with Samurai Prowl and Waspinator today.

 

Got 2 Prowls, and was gonna pass on the bug but had a store credit so...

 

Haven't changed Prowl yet. Waspinator, I like, but a moving jaw, more possable wings and any feature in the tail would be nice. Over all though I like it, and if a good sale comes along I may get a couple more as it has an "army builder" feel to it and a Bug Brigade can be fun.

 

Definetly needs a weapon, and reading his second "Galatic Ability" cracked me up.

 

Just got around to Prowl, was very suprized that the add on armor is a single piece save for the wheel. I'm actualy very impressed by that and wish it had a third placement type mode.

 

Looking at him though I can't help but wonder why they didn't make the stars detachable this time around?

First transformers haul in ages.

 

Marvel Crossover Ironman: I waited for the black 'Warmachine' repaint to get this guy. I always like that color scheme better and I thought it would look good with Venom and Black Spider-man. Overall I thought the mold was decent, admittedly better then it looks in pictures. Still a bit miffed about the lack of poseablility in the arms. You can move them, yeah, but not in the right positions. Any attempt results in something terribly awkward looking.

 

Thor: I was half-and-half about this guy at first. His robot mode looks great but that vehicle mode is terrible. Besides the fact that model of plane has been severely overused in transformers as of late, it doesn't have any detail. The paint job makes it look like a preschool toy. But that robot mode is slick. The 'cape' is awesome, much better then the old Tie-fighter Vader transformer. My only complaint about the robot mode is the hammer. It's too small and he doesn't hold it firmly. Otherwise transformation mechanics are great.

 

Animated Ultra Magnus: Original Magnus molds are one in a million. The titanium figure, which was G1 accurate, also stunk. It was just way to small to make a respectable Magnus. I was looking forward to this guy when I saw his design sketches way back when. He's one of the few (or rather the only one) animated figures that can 'blend' into the mainline toys. He's just proportionate enough to pull it off. What's more, he's armed to the teeth. The only points I'd take off would be for the overused vehicle mode. I don't think Ultra Magnus has to be a semi or anything, but another blasted APC? Between all the CD Hotshot repaints and Onslaught, I'm quickly getting tired of this vehicle. As least the design of it has been tweaked enough to make it look different, unlight Onslaught.

 

The cancellation of the animated line only worries me because there were some new figures I was looking forward to. I thought the Alpha Trion and even Wreck Gar figures would be a nice addition, and I still haven't tracked down an Animated Shockwave in any of my local stores. I may have to buy him online. Took me this long to snag an Ultra Magnus. I might grab Safeguard, too. I hope the new movie line is better then what little I've seen so far, otherwise I may not be buying many transformers during the next year.

    • Today's feature is POWERED by the 2020 Planet X PX-14B Helios figure. This release is the third in succession of Diaclone Powered Convoy themed TFcon exclusives sponsored by The Chosen Prime. The first was the 2009 Fans Project Parallax D.I.A. Commander Armor Set, followed by the 2019 MakeToys MTCD-01D Delta Manus. Click Image to Read the Full News Story Now
    • Tonight on GotBot Goes Live, we talked about a big rumor (I can't stress rumor enough) of a new SS 86 Hot Rod, we dive deeper into Ironhide and cover this week's news, including the 2 Canon crossovers. Plus, we play 2 rounds of trivia and do this week's unboxing!    
    • Been a lotta work over the years for the fans. Worth it. As for Cyril's collection, it is my entire childhood and then some.
    • I know he's not going to read this most likely but you're not supposed to be able to separate the car mode easily you twit. It's only supposed to happen when you plug it onto the Menasor frame. That's like complaining about a Powermaster not being able to easily transform if you don't have the engine in it. It's the whole point. And the people who say that Hasbro is coping third party figures. Are you serious? Hasbro is just copying the cartoon designs. Designs that they own. Which is what the third party were copying. CW Menasor was trying to emulate the toys more than anything with the scramble aspect. They were also trying to make Menasor's design work more like the rest of the Scramble City style combiners. It's just that how can they be copying something that they came up with first? And that Crasher still sucks. It should've been a retool of Dragstrip instead of just a redeco of Mirage with the other Mirage's spare head. Slicks should be the redeco of Mirage if you want to do a Gobot from him due to the similar parts layouts. Dragstrip when done right will always look more like Crasher as they have similar parts layouts. Even G1 Dragstrip looks like G1 Crasher. The front goes behind the head on both but in slightly different ways. Even still, you can make that same piece look like Crasher's.
