  1. I would say it seems to have a more Samurai feel than "Chinese warrior" feel to the design. How that will actually translate into a workable transformation into a car I don';t know. We'll see.
  2. I understand where your comiong from, but remember, Rescuebots wasn't targeted for the eight-year orl demographic. It was targeting the four to five year old range. The new show that Habro is making, according to this article is also targeting that younger age range as well as the eight year olds. They're trying to widen the demographic.
  3. I snagged all three of the first wave of FoC figures, and love them all. Yes, Prime is small, and should be Voyager class, but he's still a gorgeous figure with a nice transformation and very G1-esque design in both modes. I do wish he had lightpiping though. Jazz, as well, is a sweet figure. He captures Jazz' appearance beautifully, and yes, he does have lightpiping, though it is very dark grey, and thus, not very effective. Shockwave is just damn near perfect. Very well designed, very well sculpted; he just screams Shockwave.
  4. I just grabbed Cyberverse Legends class Evac. It's a great little figure, and very well detailed. I wish I could get a couple of the Deluxe versions.
  5. I just snagged Cyberverse Legends class Evac. I wish I could get a couple of the Deluxe versions. Regardless, this is a sweet looking little figure.
  6. I just picked up the Cyberverse Breakdown figure. He's a nice little figure, though I do wish he were Commander class instead of Legends class.
  7. TFP Soundwave 10:10 A dead ringer for the character, downright creepy, and super posable, particularly in the upper body. I can't call his minion "Laserbeak" though. Laserbeak is a bird, This thing is more like a bat. Thus, he's Ratbat as far as I'm concerned. TFP Arcee 9.5:10 Damn-near perfect except for some needed paint apps and the need for duplicates of her weapons. Very screen accurate, nicely articulated, and very feminine looking. With some paint touch-ups, she's easily a 10:10.
  8. For TFP figures so far to date, I have: Legion class Ratchet Legion Class Bumblebee Legion Class Arcee Legion class Cliffjumper LEgion Class Vehicon Commader class Bulkhead Commander Class Optimus Prime Commader class Megatron Deluxe Class Ratchet (RiD) Deluxe Class Bumblebee (RiD) Deluxe Class Wheeljack (RiD) Deluxe Class Cliffjumper (RiD) Deluxe Class Arcee (RiD) Deluxe Class Soundwave (RiD) Voyager class Optimus Prime (RiD) Voyager Class Megatron (RiD). My newest are Soundwave and Arcee, I just picked them up in the past couple of days. All I need now to complete the Autobots is Bulkhead.
  9. I just snagged TFP RiD Bumblebee, and honestly, he's a nice little figure, IMO.Sure, they could have done something with that piece of bumper and grille sticking up behind his head, but, otherwise, he's a pretty sweet figure.
  10. So far, I've managed to snag TFP Legends class Arcee, Ratchet, Bumblebee, Cliffjumper, and Vehicon, as well as Deluxe Class Ratchet and Voyager Class Optimus Prime. They are all sweet figures.
  11. I just picked up TFP Legends class Ratchet from the Target store up on Niagara Falls Blvd. He's a sweet little figure too. They also had some Bumblebee's a Vehicon, and a few Cliffjumpers, but I only had enough for one figure. Now I'm broke 'til Friday.
  12. I just got the The Generation One Complete Seasons 1 and 3 DVD sets. I still need to find the Season two sets.
  13. MY RTS Windcharger figures just came in the mail today!!!! :yay :tfdance :tfdance :tfdance :yay
  14. I picked up Guzzle today. He's a great little figure, and is going in with my CHUG collection, not movie bots. One more Wrecker joins the team.
  15. Don't use the spray paint. Use a colored acrylic clear coat. I recommend Tamiya Color X-23 Clear Blue. It will add color while keeping the transparency of the windows, and provide a much sharper effect over the silver on the fins on either side of the head as well. As for modifying the head, you'll need some sheet styrene, an X-Acto knife, Dremmel tool, and some Jeweler's files, as well as some filler putty and liquid plastic welder (liquid model cement designed to weld styrene, acrylic, butyrate, ABS). There are a number if head sculpting and fabrication tutorials over at Sector70.com, here, including a head fabrication tutorial I wrote (it's an attached PDF). Any one of them will be useful to you.
