Actually, you're better off just using a jeweler's file to file down the ledges on the inside of her hands.

I just completed my "FoC "Cassettes" with Rewind and Sundor. Now, the only one "missing" is Buzzsaw, and that's only because I don't have (or really need) Soundblaster.

I have Generations Shrapnel too, and I love the figure. I like Reflector too, and his weapon mode looks pretty much just like Shrapnel's old grenade launcher, so I have no problem with that. One correction I need to make on your review though, is that Shrapnel's head is not static. It can rotate fro...

Got Generations AoE Voyager Grimlock today. The design is pretty cool, and his face says him Grimlock although the tall head crest is a bit weird. The transformation is interesting, although as usual Hasbro supply terrible instructions. The fake lower jaw on his chest is fine in robot mode but look...

I also picked up Swerve tonight! Now I can hear those familiar with me wondering "Why did you buy Swerve when you hate the character?" And indeed, even though I thought it looked like a good little toy I was originally planning to pass on it in favour of the inevitable Gears redeco. But then we act...

I just snagged Swerve with Flanker, and Cosmos with Payload today; very sweet figures. The expression on Swerve's face is priceless. It definitely fits the character. I just wish his head was on a ball joint so that it could turn from side to side. Cosmos is damn near perfect. A great update to one ...

I just got a nice new delivery via UPS today. The Platinum Edition Grimlock and Bruticus set. It is SWEEEEEEEEEEEET!!!!!!!! Bruticus is rightfully huge and very nicely articulated in both his various component forms and as a combined unit. Unlike some others, I actually like that Onslaught is Deluxe...

Just picked up Generations Megatron with Chopshop, and Starscream with Waspinator. Definitely nice little figures. Now all I need to complete the original four is Prime.

My copy of the Covenant of Primus just came in this afternoon. It's a great read, though it does open up a huge can of worms with the identity of one of the Thirteen.

Picked up Generations Blitzwing yesterday and, flaws aside, I love him. He's a great figure. I did need to do the "filing" fix to get the shoulders to properly lock, and even then, the "in-out" joints for the shoulders are so tight, it still causes the assembly to pop out when I raise the arms out t...

I'd say that the RID Arcee and Vehicon are better and far more screen accurate.

Sorry, I meant clean breaks as in the edges of the breaks are clean: no stress marks or tearing like you'd see on normal plastic breakage. The pieces that came off were themselves so tiny that they themselves don't count as much more than shards, so it's no surprise to me that there weren't any oth...

That's a fair bet, yeah. If not GPS then something like it. I mean, sure, toys break. But they usually don't crumble to pieces like this unless the plastic has started to decay. And it reminds me a fair bit of how my G2 Slingshot fell apart back in the day -- clean breaks in the plastic coming off ...

check for signs of GPS. I'm not saying that absolutely is the cause, but it might be.

Thanks for reading, guys! :) I absolutely love Sky-Byte and his goon trio, and they're the ones who made watching RID bearable. It's just that, well, up until now nearly every Decepticon that was funny had to be a butt monkey and are generally incompetent. Waspinator, BW Inferno, Sky-Byte, Armada D...

I TRU Sunday and found some nice gems too. They're having a buy 2 get the third free clearance sale and had Generations Junkheap, DotM Cyberverse Sentinel Prime, and TFP Cyberverse Starscream (one each left), so I snagged them. I was hoping the rerelease TFP FE figures would have been out already, b...

Personally, I love the PRID Megatron and Prime (just not Prime's MechTech gun; I made my own guns for him instead). I actually ended up getting two Megatrons (one was turned into the Liege Maximo). The cannon is actually pretty decent, though the colors are just not as accurate as they should be (in...

I just managed to snag all three of the first wave of F0C figures, and they are all sweet. Yes, Optimus is small, and would have been better as a Voyager class, but he's a well designed figure, very G1-esque. Jazz too looks the part. Everything about him screams G1 Jazz. Shockwave is awesome. He wen...
