  1. wow. I remember when this board was helpful.. huge and booming. Community of people helping each other. Is it just a newsroom now of no interaction at all???
  2. Hello???? Does anyone here know the difference and how to identify the KO from the authentic - by the box or otherwise???
  3. I am playing a little bit of catching up getting a few MP figures that I missed and still want. I had given up on the MP line years ago when they changed the scale and were in a constant repeat of the same molds. It is nice to see they finally began making what many collectors had been wanting for years. Anyways - I want to get the MP-16 Frenzy and buzzsaw - but I see that it is sold out everywhere. I see a ton of them on ebay, however it seems that 90% of them are KO (knock offs). How do you tell the difference from the true Katara figure and the KO??? Does the true Katara MP's all come with the 'coins' anymore?? I see that even bigbagtoys sells the coins alone. Don't the coins come with the figure, as part of the authenticity and to add to the collectability value? Also, if anyone knows where an original is for sale, I'd appreciate a link. Thanks TF community! :)
  4. OK.. finally had time to open things up and check them out... ALTERNITY: I have to say, I'm even less impressed after seeing it. The scale difference bothers me more than I thought it would. And all of the panel breaks really detract from the vehicle mode. Why in the heck, couldn't they keep the quality and scale of the BT, and do everything else right they did?? *heavy sigh* I'm back on the fence about this one - whether I want to invest the buy-in for this line at all. IGear CONTROL PANEL: The earlier review was spot on. I managed to get past the wall issue - it seems that some of the pieces that are suppose to fit in, are simply not molded well. They had pieces of plastic that I had to shave off with an exacto knife. After that, they fit together much better. It is a tad bigger than I realized it would be (which is nice). I think the overall display will be fairly nice once complete. It's definately going to take a little crazy clue to ensure it's not flimpsy tho. I cannot say enough how CRAPPY the glue on the stickers are. They won't stay on for anything. Going to have to add some adhesive. For all the issues and quality, this thing should have been half the price - hands down. Still when it's said and done, and all the extra work is put into it that a person shouldn't have to do -- i'm going to like the final display product.
  5. Liege will give me hell about this.. lol but in the mail today, arived my first Alternity. It was Silver Prime, simply because he is getting more difficult to find, and I wanted to get it before it goes the way of the red Prime (which i'm tracking down right now). The latest showings of Alternity starscream/Skywarp are sucking me in. They are doing a few things better than the binaltech line did -- the balance of autobots and decepticons; releasing 2 of each mold so that you can display them in both forms without having gone crazy in repaints; and the order of characters being released. I'm beginning to feel like this line will compliment the BT line well, and will not be just a quick series that is gone before it gets going. I still think the BT line has a bit more quality to them. Some of the breaks in panels in the Alternity line irk me - makes it seem more like a toy that transforms instead of looking more like an actual model car (and thus realistic) - but overall, the line is winning me over. I'm on the verge of buying in, and getting caught up. As Leige pointed out in the past, some of the biggest critics will eventually become some of it's biggest supporters. Well, that amount of support is still a bit away - but I am getting won over. Also, the IGear Control Panel - for a G1 display piece came in today. Yea yea, i overpaid for it. But I'm into displays, and I think this will be a very nice piece to put in with my G1's. I'll get back to everyone after a bit about whether I had problems putting the walls together like someone else that posted a review of it.
  6. Dude, your collection is awesome! I like that huge display case!

  7. Thank you for the friendship :)
