It did happen to me on a deluxe class. The plastic bubble flipped open easily more than half, not whole though. Makes my job much easier. I've seen those in stores, too. The card was still on the hook but the toy was below. Guess Hasbro just tried to save on the glue as well.

Looks a hell lot better than the actual Botcon see-through mess! I actually really dig Landquake's colour palette, shame it's super-expensive, super-rare and super-ugly with clear plastic. Your kitbash makes it look brilliant. Thanks. :) You know, when I was painting him, somehow all the sudden I h...

Again with the great, tiny detailing on the face. Nice! Where's the combiner hand from? I think I recognize it, but can't place it. Thanks. Animated Sentinel Prime. That guy got big hands. The wrist swirl joint is also from his front wheel rotating piece. Then I have the original Energon weapon, Gu...

[KITBASH] Project Nexus #3 Landquake

A straight repaint from Blast Off. Didn't make him any new weapons since he already got two awesome ones on his arms.

It's never too late, right? Just got FoC cheap off eBay and enjoy playing it now with my very little spare time. Man, even Optimus can die so fast when surrounded by two cons with shotgun.

Thanks. It's from Great Might Gaine's model kit. I had that model kit for a very long time (more than 10 years) and it is pretty much falling apart now. So he is now a great source of my TF custom. :)

A straight repaint from Swindle.

That Predaking is $17.50 at my local Targets. The tag on him reads $37, but the price scanner says otherwise. They've been hyper aggressive with their clearance and, on occasion, it'll ring up even less at the register. My local target marked him at $27 but beeped at $13.74. Cheaper than a deluxe. ...

Armada Starscream is...pretty neat. His jet mode is a pretty. His swords fold up and store under his wings. Said wings are on ball joints to give added poseability in robot mode. His articulation isn't perfect, but still very good. His arms are on a hinge and swivel arrangement. The hinged part has...

Used to be. I played them from the very first 1 to X-2 (from the very original Nintendo red white Famicon to PS2. That's more than a decade :wtf:). Then felt so sick and tired of it and quit permanently. I also had their original sound track from 1 to 8 which I imported from Japan. Also sold them al...

Tooth stick ;) Sometimes I use it for tiny details.

That's the same material I used last time (Superion stomach filler). Good job on that. It's hard to paint on. I use Tamiya acrylics and it even felt like the paints are eating the plastic a little bit.

Wow! Nice. I've tried that material (forgot what it called) and it was quite difficult to paint on.

I just picked up BH Grimwing and Ultra Magnus on clearance at Shopko during a weekend of meetings. I haven't had a chance to get into Magnus yet, but Grimwing is pretty dang sweet. Great color scheme, and actually pretty cool in both modes. I'm not fond of the look of most of the BH Predacons, but ...

After my daughter finish the 7th book, I'm going to sell all of them. Does any one interest in buying? That shelf space works much better for displaying Transformers :lol:

Seriously, I've never forced myself to finish a book so hard and so careless like these books. Not even my high school textbooks.

Thanks. Yes, same here. Never thought about buying this mold (either Starscream or Thundercracker) until I got a $5 off coupon.
