Power Outages Suck

My area was ravaged by a freak storm last night with more storms to come tonight. I have no power and may not for a bit. My only internet access is my phone.

Basically if you don't see me on the usual boards much this would he why.

But when I come back I just may bring a fixed Airachnid with me. Non gimped arms that mostly fit in vehicle mode :)

See ya soon, people!

PRiD Bumblebee was a disappointment. It's odd head placement with the low sitting chest looks entirely off from the show model and the sea of yellow just made it rather boring.
Then came the HotShot mold with a new head and entirely new colors. The fun of the figure had a chance to shine through. Sweet, it was a fun toy after all!

Well here we are again with another Bumblebee. Oy, so tired of seeing this guy on the shelves... what a second? He looks kinda good. In fact if you give the guy some weapons...

This here is my Combat Hero Bee. He's here to defend us from his nemesis, Murderbee!
Pick this toy up, guys! It's pretty damn cool.

Still have plenty for sale on eBay!
Buy some neat stuff!

Raging Dead

Review time today.
I picked up Dead End because he looks awesome. Little did I know he looks that way because he's made of awesome.

I kinda love this toy. The Wheeljack mold was already great, though the arms were a bit long for the show model (which might be the best on that show) but it's a fun toy. This guy takes that fun to new levels.

The colors, man! Wheeljack was a sea of white whereas this guy is pure Halloween fueled madness. Not only did they give Wheeljack's white areas more to do by splitting them into two different colors they also gave this guy a ton of paint. That paint was rebudgeted from Airachnid but I'm ok witht hat because Dead End is a far better toy.

The new head sculpt is what makes me enjoy this toy so damn much. In early photos I thought he had a bit of a monkey mouth going on. See, I thought that entire green part was his lower face with a closed mouth molded into the translucent plastic. What I was seeing was the air bubbles trapped inside the plastic. He really has a gaping, glowing green mouth that shows off his true madness. I can see Dead End and Nemesis Prime hunting and attacking random bots on Cybertron together, fighting over the scraps of their kill.

Also I love his big venom fang lookin' swords.

I didn't take a whole bunch of pictures before packing everything up but I figured this one would do.

Time for a lot of people to get what's coming to them!

Spray It, Don't Say It

Lookit what I dug out of the closet!
I didn't do a lot on this guy. I mostly just made his colors brighter and tweaked his helmet a bit.

Click here if you want to take him home with you.


Feel my BURNING love!!!

Also, I modded this other guy to have removable doors...

My Precious...

Anyone that knows me knows that I love Jazz above all other Transformers. I've been tweaking this toy since I got him at Botcon last year. I'll post a full photo shoot later, I just felt like showing off my favorite toy for the moment.

This has been a long time coming. Not only did I get my hands on a couple of Vehicons but I finally got around to finishing my First Edition Starscream!

First, let's look at Megs and his boys!

"Where, Lord? I don't see 'em!"

So I had this Megatron with dulled chrome paint waiting to be finished with a bit of detailing. I also had these Vehicons and I figured I'd get them all together for a fun time.

"C'mon, guys... I ok to drive... right?"
I went a bit too far with the Vehicons. The photos make it look like I just painted them black but it's really a mix I made. It's extremely dark purple that doesn't come across in photos. Frustrating as hell, really.

One is from the big city! The other is a down home farm boy. Can they live together in one small apartment?

But we've seen that before. This guy though. Well, I started working on Screamer when the mold was first released but trying to decipher all those shades of gray with just pics from the net was infuriating so I gave it up for a long, long time. Until now!

After working on the Voyager mold with better reference pics I figured out what to do with this one. And while the Voyager has a better head sculpt this one has a better body as well as being in scale with most other figures.

So I'm in the process of thinning my collection and here's some of the stuff I dug up. We have a Sideswipe painted to look like the original toy with the chrome bits, a Cliffjumper whose head I resculpted forEVER ago before repro heads were a thing, a Silverstreak I detailed a bit and a Hound I just went and made all pretty and stuff.
Hound is the best guy down there. I like him lots.
And, as stated, they are all for sale because... meh. I'm tired of having tons of toys. I've enjoyed them and I won't miss them terribly.

A hotdog makes her lose control? Really?

I've been pretty busy of late, lots of commisions and projects. It's fun, mind you, but super time consuming. I don't have anything new to post at the moment but I do have these pictures laying around comparing a painted and unpainted Vehicon. They'll both be appearing in a set pretty soon.

I took these pictures because sometimes I do things a little too subtly.

Streaking is Perfectly Legal

I've decided to start clearing out a good chunk of my collection. I just want the space more than I want the toys but don't get too excited. I'm not by any means selling everything. I am however getting started with a lot of my Classics guys.

Now the thing with me is there are only a handful of toys in my collection without paint on the and most have a LOT of paint. This guy turned out pretty awesome for what it is. See I usually don't dig slavish repaints of toys to look like their G1 forms but Sunstreaker's colors just lend himself very well to this. He came out a lot better than I expected.
