  1. Playing with the new cell phone camera - 20 MP! Here's a shot without flash. And a shot with flash.
  2. I picked up Orion Pax and Trailbreaker a couple days ago. Trailbreaker is a good solid figure, could have stood being a little bigger, but with the cost-cutting in figures these days he is still a winner. I wish the head were a little more G1 animation-like, though. The sculpt doesn't quite match the comic's portrayal anyway, so why not throw a bone to us classic-G1 types? Overall a very good update of the character. Orion is decent. I'm a classic G1 fan who doesn't care for IDW, so a lot of the intended appeal of the figure is lost on me (just as with Trailbreaker). When I think Orion Pax, I think of Sunbow's dock worker, not IDW's relatively inexperienced Autobot warrior. So for me this isn't "Orion Pax" so much as "Young Optimus Prime". Technically the same thing, of course, but you get my meaning. Very good robot mode - just a faceplate away from being yet another good Cybertronian Optimus toy. Vehicle mode is a little unstable. I would have liked to see the weapons integrated in the altmode somehow, but the storage we get is adequate. I'm not sure if I would have picked this guy up if he weren't a version of Optimus, though.
  3. Rediscovered BWII Galvatron while sorting through the collection.
  4. "Think you can take me, pipsqueak?" "Bzzzt-Yippie-kai-yay mother--------! Kzzt" "Kzzt - Hail to the king, baby! Bzzt"
  5. Prime should really give up the Beast Hunting. He's not very good at it.
  6. Magnus decides he deserves a field promotion.
  7. " "You won't be hunting this beast, noooo!" "I'll drive, you shoot! I'll keep the faces!"
  8. Just pulled Trypticon out of storage, and decided to have some fun.
  9. Defender and Springer: Robots - both have decent robot modes Choppers - Defender pegs together solidly. Springer . . . doesn't. Springer's car mode is bigger, but also much more unstable. Nothing at all pegs together right on Springer, although this shot shows my best attempt to date. New and old
  10. My last major purchase was Springer, and I think he's mediocre at best. Robot mode is ok, though the left chest section has a tendency to unpeg when I move the arm. Unstable chests are a pet peeve with me, but this is far from the worst case I've seen (nearly every movie Ironhide for example). I don't care for the lack of pegging together involved with the helicopter mode - the "side sections" are basically just supposed to stay in place due to friction - a big no-no IMO with a figure this big. Car mode is garbage. I'm very glad I never even considered getting rid of Defender. The transformation is a lot more complex, but everything actually stays where it's supposed to on Fansproject's version. If this is the better of the Triple-Changers out right now, I'm not sure I want to try Blitzwing. If most people think Springer is almost perfect and I think it's poor, what will I think of Blitzwing, whom a lot of people say is terrible?
  11. The latest in my "Cell Phone shots on my Desk" series: They can share weapons pretty well. The trading works for both modes, too!
  12. Love it!Die-cast construction, it's a lost art. I hope it stays that way.
  13. My game Autobots. I have FOC Prime, but decided to use his FWC figure just to make him a little more different from Magnus, my latest figure. And their opponents! I love how Soundblaster is posable enough topress his eject button!
  14. G1 Decepticons ready for battle! Their opponents . . . . . . their TF Prime counterparts! Notice Rumble already has the advantage over the ground-based TFP `Cons. Frenzy versus Laserbeak.
  15. Firebolt is probably the best part of the MP Rodimus set.
  16. A sight to make any Decepticon wish he'd stayed in bed . . .
  17. With Blast Off missing, Bruticus attempts a substitution . . .
  18. Another "Look what I finally got!" picture.
  19. Prime considers the burden of leadership . . . My newest arrival!
  20. Nice! That actually works quite well. I hadn't even thought abiut using that trailer. If you look closely, the front wheels on the trailer are just a bit off the ground, but it still looks pretty good. I just figured I'd give it a shot. The connection is actually quite good and solid, better than the figure the trailer originally came with. Also, I need to dust that shelf . . .
  21. Just got the Prime Entertainment Pack. Look what Prime Prime works with! Its not perfect, but it makes a good display nonetheless.
