  1. I hope this is a precursor of things to come. I'd like to see a Titan Class Fort Max with Master Sword. And Cerebros comes with a smaller Master Sword. And of course withMetroplex you'll need Trypticon. And with Fort Max you'll need Scorponok. An updated Omega Supreme would be nice too.
  2. We really want to talk everyday things, I'd like to see them do something akin to Soundwave/Blaster where it's not vehicles or beasts, but objects that we use. Calculators, computers, printers, fax machines. I loved seeing all the kitchen appliances come to life in ROTF cause it really gave an even deeper sense of "More Than Meets the Eye" to Transformers. This could make it so they could be absolutely anywhere or anything. Yes Takara did their various offshoots like that Blaster laptop that I don't think saw release and their transforming USB flash drives, but I'm talking something closer to the Real Gear figures from the first movie, just not as childish looking in nature. Hell, the toaster bot Decepticon from ROTF is sitting on my nightstand. As for obscure vehicles, all I can think of reminds me of the photos Simmons had in ROTF of the Seekers that were all sorts of really old cars/planes/etc.
  3. He looks great and I'm looking forward to him. But my question is why does he seem to come with a G1 Prime blaster...or at least a very very close look alike.
  4. I was actually working on a mod to my Megatrons weapon removing the sword and taking the piece of his other hand weapon and using the part where it plugs into his arm as a base and filled in the gaps. It's mostly done, I just have to paint it. Now his sword and cannon are separate and I have no need for the gimmick. Other than that, I'm actually very pleased with PRID Megatron. I may pick up Starscream just for size reasone, but on the flip side the FE Starscream actually does work out well for size purposes. For the most part I want the figures that didn't get an FE release or had one planned but never got released.
  5. Cool paint, but I have to agree about the random red triangle in vehicle mode however.
  6. Using a little modeling putty behind just in case, using my dremel, I carved out Optimus' face w/o his faceplate on. Then I took an x-acto knife and put his mouth on. Using some more model putty, I added the blue strips at the bottom of his chin and painted everything accordingly. Now he has a head for when he's not in battle.
  7. Nice. I had started one with a spare Wheeljack that I had, but now there's no need. I can focus on my Optimus Prime non-battle masked face instead that I've been working on.
  8. With the original G1 comics now continuing with no. 81 soon, obviously things are going to pick up where they were left off possibly bypassing the entire G2 era. Now my question is this: With quite a few characters having been done for G2 and a few redoings of G1, do you guys think Furman will somehow include them at all. A la a very G1-esque Drift from the newer TF series or Road Pig or Turbofire from G2?

    TF:Prime Ratchet

    I have had mine for about three weeks now and I've had no issues with mine. This feature I something that's supposed to be a common feature in all deluxe figures which is why Hasbro is calling them Revealers now.
  10. What about leader class Brawl from the 2007 movie? You left him off your list.
  11. I've been doing a lot of repurposing lately with some weapons even modding a little here and there to give some of my Prime figures weapons they either don't have in toy form (or maybe not even in the show) to make them even cooler. Recent mods have included taking the exhaust nozzles from my Jetpowered Optimus custom last summer that were spare from the second Jetfire, some handle pieces from Wheeljack's swords, and gave Bulkhead some blasters. I got the Cliffjumper figure and the battle hammer just looked kind of off for Cliff, even for the FE version. So noticing that the sides can come off, I took it off and gave that piece to Bumblebee producing a melee weapon for him that I call his Stinger. Liking how it looked, but not how it stayed, I picked up another Wheeljack and Cliffjumper for parts and made handles and repeated the process with the second Cliffjumper's weapon so Bumblebee (like his other Autobot friends) now has dual weapons. They look almost like boxing gloves. No what to do with the remainder of the weapon that came with Cliff, well, I sanded down the end of the rifle with my dremel so it would fit in between the triple barrel of the FE Cliff's weapons and narrowed to a blunted point the part that was the handle for the rifle position of the battle hammer and now he has twin axes. With the second Cliffjumper itself however, I plan on getting a second Ratchet and doing his welding tool using his blades and Cliff's horn for the tip. Pics for example: Cliff and Bee with their new melee weapons (Cliff's still needs his painted) A close up of Bee's Stingers Bulkhead's blasters Anybody else do this kind of thing?
  12. I hope his head is depicted in its current status with an eye patch on the right and not two fully functioning optics. If it doesn't, I'm sure some third party will make an alternate head with the eye patch like the alternate Kup head that iGear put out.
  13. Taking the sides from the battle hammer from PRID Cliffjumper, I have managed to give Bumblebee a melee weapon I call his stinger. Works like a mace but has an electrical charge that can be delivered on contact. It can connect to his blasters for a boosted charge. It is held in place with a small handle made from the part of the handle of Wheeljack swords that weren't used when I did Bulkheads blasters.
  14. I'm not sure when you ordered yours, I'm going to guess it was the day they got things up and running again, but you should have gotten a notification by now. I received mine on Saturday. The email prior stated it shipped 2/22 with tracking info. I ordered a few days after that so maybe soon then.
  15. Ironhide? Looks kinda like a disgruntled war torn bot.
  16. Thanks Rumblebee. I painted his mace as well to look lit like it does in the show, not as impressive though. Same color however.
  17. It looks like they're taking the concept of the Decepticon experiments regarding the Insecticons from the IDW comics. That montrosity at the end is only the beginning of Jack and Arcee's troubles. Can't wait for the conclusion.
  18. Actually it looks like K-Mart is selling their Powerizer figures for $19.99. Cheapest ones I think.
  19. I know some people have been getting theirs and in light of recent events, do you think that the whole cc fraud fiasco is putting them behind because I haven't even received a shipping notice or anything. However the pre-order page did say expected to ship within four weeks of feb 29th shipdate, so maybe it still holds true. Any thoughts...and let's keep the current issue they're having relevant and not turn into a discussion regarding that alone.
  20. Added paint on the inside to make it "energized".
  21. I got my Takara FE Prime Bulkhead today from BBTS. And as I had initially mentioned, I had some spare exhaust vents from ROTF Jetfire and planned on turning them into blasters for him. This is the end result:
  22. Well, the Fansproject Springer figure is now sitting in my pile of loot at BBTS. I'll ship Monday (give the weekend for any other stuff to come in).
