  1. His current pose on my shelf... ~Matt Booker
  2. That's a creepy looking loogie. ~Matt Booker
  3. No, I still haven't done a repaint yet, but that's a close guess! From my site: The recent repaint of classics Mirage into movie Fracture classics Crasher was very successful in the collector community. Perhaps a little too successful. Reasoning that it worked for Mirage, HasTak execs decided that fans must like gender bended repaints. And so it was that Trixie taught us the real truth behind hood chests… Unfortunately, the character was not a g1 homage so fans hated it. Released in Japan as WonderChest Wonderfest Classics Arcee, the figure was a resounding success. At first her torso was all pink, but then I thought, "You know what's classy? A belly shirt!" ~Matt Booker
  4. What? That's the only action pose I could post without censoring. :tflaugh Very nice shot of Lio Convoy. He's often said to be particularly hard to photograph, isn't he? Also, those wst dinorobots are awesome. Just how small are they, though? (Like, maybe a comparison of Grimlock and animated Grimlock.) ~Matt Booker
  5. Ratchet and Oilslick demonstrating that two staggering drunks can combine to form one stable stance. It might be a little late for Christmas stuff, but click the picture or visit MattBooker.info for my Twas The Night Before Christmas parody. :D ~Matt Booker
  6. That's f'in sweet, Sami! Hmm... I might as well ruin the mood with a followup to your awesome image with something I put together at 3am. Turkeygon, anyone? Happy Thanksgiving! ~Matt Booker
  7. A Blitzwing teaser image. :tflaugh ~Matt Booker
  8. Uncomfortable sarcasm shall be dealt with accordingly! ~Matt Booker
  9. :tflaugh *resists the urge to create more photocomic slash parodies* While I'm on the subject, I still love this picture. ~Matt Booker
  10. Omega Setninel had a much better color scheme. To the point I might've kept the body if I'd got him instead. (Though I think I like the head on Omega Supreme better...) Seriously, I REALLY like the headmaster for this. I'm surprised I held off buying him at full price. ~Matt Booker
  11. :tflaugh "Hurry Geoffry, to Toys R Us!" :dclol *does not regret buying Energon Omega Supreme for $11 at Walmart* Of course, I eventually got rid of Omega's body. I only wanted the headmaster. ~Matt Booker
  12. I use Paint Shop Pro 9 (back when it was still owned by Jasc). It may be the poor man's Photoshop, but I like it better. As for the technique, I've thought about doing it for a while and finally tried to come up with something for my Ironhide guide, but I was sleepy and did it kind of quickly. I did figure out pretty much how I wanted to do it, though, and the Bumblebee picture came out very nice. (Notice how Bumblebee actually tfs in between Shockwave's arms.) When I get Blur, expect more of these! :D ~Matt Booker
  13. Bumblebee's Revenge! ~Matt Booker
  14. He's got fuzzy slippers on! (Sorry, just watched Bender's Game last night and was thinking about the Professor.) ~Matt Booker
  15. I'm pretty sure you're right about that line thing.

    It would've been nice to have seen that.

    *begins looking for another Blitzwing at retail, now.*

  16. It looks really cool from those angles. From the side, it looks like half a jet with a backpack. Also cool looking is the gerwalk mode, but in person it looks kind of dumb. But, I've never been partial to those modes anyway. ~Matt Booker
  17. How did you do that with his fingers? Or is that just photo editing? Photo editing. :D ~Matt Booker
  18. MOST AWESOME PICTURE EVAR? Quite possibly. ~Matt Booker
  19. Blitzwing is just glad he doesn't have nipples. ~Matt Booker
  20. Count yourself lucky that you haven't carved the middle piece, as you might not need to if you do my backpack mod. :) Still, I can't argue much about a second cannon for him. As for Ratchet... I may do that. I want to say it's likely that Hasbro make a Ratchet, but usually for classics it's been Hasbro first and Takara second. Ratchet's the first classic to come out over there first. But, Hastak does love repaints, and Ratchet would be well received. ~Matt Booker
  21. Thanks! :D It's been a while since I watched the movie, so I had to look up Ironhide's quote. No, I'm still scared of painting. :emo Why I got him is kind of complicated, but there are two main reasons. 1, A popular mod for him is to carve the central gray piece so it doesn't hit against the bumper. This lets you slide the hips forward more. In addition, you're supposed to carve the top of the crotch piece so the bumper has more clearance. That didn't solve the issue, and carving the top of the crotch doesn't do much because it leaves the hips higher and they hit the bumper then. So I figured out a way to mod the backpack, which lets it swing around and securely clip where I think it was intended to when designed. This lets you slide the hips all the way forward and his head is then flush with the top of the body. That creates ANOTHER problem. His stature was no longer humanesque, and therefore displeasing to the eye. I've posted about this before (with pictures), but basically it causes his head to sit far back while his hips are far forward and his arms are in the middle. H .A ..L So to correct that, you can lean him forward a little. That lines everything up, but causes his head to look down. So I added a ball joint to the head, and moved his hips back a bit so he lines up better. So he still had a carved crotch issue, and I suspected that I didn't even need to carve the middle piece. I found and Ironhide today and took the lower half from it and put it on the upper half of my modded Ironhide. It fits! And now there's not a huge hole in his middle when you look at it from the side. So no carving of the middle piece is needed at all. (If you put his head on a ball joint, it's perfect. If you don't, and still want the hips all the way forward so the head is up that last little bit, only a small amount of carving to the middle piece is needed.) That's lengthy to explain, and if it's not clear I apologize. In a week or so I'll have a guide prepared, and within it you'll find all the different options for display and how to mod him to be that way. ~Matt Booker
  22. "I just wanted to show him my cannons." :D (My Ironhide guide got a bit delayed by my job search, but it is coming!) ~Matt Booker
