  1. Hey, I've not had much luck with my masterpieces, their paint is usually terrible. So, I'm going to have a go at some repairs for the worst and hoped for some tips: Soundwave - foot scratched up out of the box - what silver would you recommend for touch ups? Also, what blue for the toes? Red Alert - face scratched out of the box - what silver could I use for this? Thanks, Jack
  2. Hi there, I'm trying to find Rodimus Prime Masterpiece Version 2 (Takara version which tried to fix most of the problems) - does anyone know where I can get one? Thanks :D Jack
  3. Hmm, you guys are starting to convince me to get more! :) not good for my wallet - do you know if Soundwave will definitely be able to carry three cassettes?
  4. Right, so I've got Lambor, Soundwave and Rumble and Ravage on order. The masterpieces are just too amazing! I can't justify the repaints really, especially not Frenzy and Buzzsaw. As much as I want Frenzy... Red Alert MP looks good too. Argh :)
  5. Look who arrived today to keep Optimus company (OMG SO EXCITED)
  6. The thing that annoys me most is the quality of the figures in a line. I'm a recent collector starting only a couple of months ago, although I had every Transformer I could as a child and my recent obsession was sparked by a purchase last year. Dark of the Moon Megatron is perfect for the price I paid. However, the FOC wave 1 I just bought leaves a lot to be desired - they're insanely expensive for what they are! Kinda made me wish I'd bought more of the movie figures rather than the game figures even if I prefer the game's world. However, I have paid over the odds for a masterpiece Prime and Grimlock and I am happy. They are perfectly made. It's that value for money that's niggling at me and other people by the sounds of it. I want a quality Transformer above anything else. Yet price is going up and quality is massively going down, except for the overpriced masterpieces. I really wanted to buy a high quality 'entire line' with FOC but I don't think that'll happen now, I'll probably stick to masterpieces.

    Transformers 4

    I can't believe Michael Bay is working on Transformers 4! After he promised he wouldn't. Argh. My bet is that Optimus, now severely damaged and 'done' will play a minor role, maybe a narrating role. I'm then betting that Ultra Magnus and the Dinobots will play a huge role and we'll no doubt get a Galvatron. Hot Rod's got to show up too, knowing Michael Bay's love of speed. As much as love seeing reinventions of existing characters though, I'd love to see some entirely new Transformer characters. A new concept entirely.
  8. FOC Shockwave - a solid, cool figure worth every penny. Looks cool in robot form as well as vehicle 4/5 FOC Jazz - the vehicle and robot look cool at first glance and the transformation is fun. However, neither mode is perfectly finished with big gaps and robot parts showing in the vehicle. Overall this feels very cheap. I paid full price, it should have been at least half that. 2/5 FOC Optimus Prime - again, on the face of it, this could have been great. The robot and vehicle mode are so close to being good but end up being cheap and unfinished. 2/5 Very disappointed :( Shockwave is awesome, the other two I wish I hadn't bought.
