That Omega Supreme is insane. Even if you could afford it, where would you put it?!

MP Megatron V2 does look quite impressive. The torso looks better proportioned than any of the 3P offerings. However, on closer inspection he does look very complicated and has a lot of kibble hanging around... I'm erring towards him as my MP-10 scaled Megatron solution, but will need to see more be...

They look really great. Other than Kapow, is anyone else selling them in UK?

The Max alt transformation is mainly a case of getting the legs limbo-ed back behind the body so the leg guns are underneath, and hiding the arms under the ramps. Just don't forget that the knees have that sideways shuffle ability. Thanks man - just gave it a go. Loving it! Much better than the lau...

I agree with you about the C... It might actually be my favourite Trek design of all time, though Klingon Bird-of-Prey and the TNG Romulan Warbird both give it a run for it's money. Surely the Borg cube wins all? :swirly: Seriously, the C had a huge impact on me as a kid - was my favourite Federati...

Just noticed this thanks to a chap on twitter yesterday. TR Broadside's jet mode actually makes Generations Blitzwing look good by comparison!

It will be nice to complete the Legends Insecticons with Kickback, however he turns out. Fingers crossed one day they do a set of three with consistent decos too. I'm assuming Blackshadow will be retooled as Overlord? That would explain the odd setup. Sixshot looks even more of a brick than he did i...

That Adam Warlock looks awesome.

While I enjoyed Starlin's recent trilogy (plus two filler) Thanos series which resurrected the character for the umpteenth time, I do far prefer the Abnett and Lanning Guardians of the Galaxy look compared with the classic form in which he has returned.

Yeah, it's Gammadim. The guardian robots always made more of an impression on me than Omega Supreme (watched the KtVS / War Dawn tape a lot as a kid).

The same music being shared by so many different programs just opens a whole another can of worms. Seeing it's unlikely there's even gonna be a GI Joe soundtrack, does that mean all this "shared" music just winds up on the Transformers one? It'd basically mean people who want the music from those o...

Still expensive for what it is, even before gullible racists murdered my native currency, but at least I know I'm getting something good for my money. Hardly the most serious impact Brexit is having on me so far, but it does make things that little bit worse on top of everything else! Dunno if I sa...

I just saw one or two episodes, but the music stuck with me because it was the same as the G1 Transformers cartoon.

I remember music (not lyrics!) well.

Considering GI Joe and Transformers shared a lot of music, I would imagine they'd either release both in a set... ...or just randomly pick which track goes to which soundtrack, forcing you to buy both. Where that leaves all the new music composed for the third season, I've no idea. Didn't Dungeons ...

In fairness there is a big difference between a Deluxe Headmaster version of Doublecross and a decent Leader Class one.

But I'll probably get neither.

Btw i also have Supreme Starscream, but the prob i have with mine is the red shiny paint seems to be getting scratched off due to the lower legs rubbing against it when transforming it into jet mode Ah - that's the Year of the Horse Supreme Starscream G1 homage repaint.
