  1. The Third Party Transformers Thread

    I’ll say this. Giga looks cool but I’m perfectly happy with all my FT Dino’s including Cesium. However I do still need Grinder and my current quest in life is to get one soon.
  2. The Third Party Transformers Thread

    I just got mine and yeah. He’s awesome just have to get used to the parts moving around other parts. My Apache is sitting in the office of my apartment building so I won’t have him till tomorrow. As far as outward arm movement many bots from different companies lack that articulation including the Dinobots so I’m ok with it
  3. The Third Party Transformers Thread

    Same here. Glad it’s being rereleased. I need them to rerelease the insecticons and Grinder then I’m happy
  4. The Transformers Thread Next

    Finally got MP Megs from TFSource. They had no plugs which was great. I’ll say this. I know the concerns about the figure but.....he’s without a doubt my favorite transformer toy ever. The poseability, the accessories, the heft, complex transformation, and POSEABILITY. I easily recommend him, I had Apollyon but this blows it away. Now (and this is a controversial topic) I want a new Prime with similar possibility to complete it. Though I’m happy with my MP-10 as well.
  5. The Third Party Transformers Thread

    Good to hear about the lack of an orange plug. Sucks to hear about the packaging. I’m currently playing signature tag with UPS for my megs. I just got got the pre-order deal for the Maketoys headmasters and really really contemplating Meteor. But as Skullface said, 600 dollars. At least 600 dollars are invested in the the Takara masterpieces so going for Meteor and then all of those eventual seekers is asking a lot from collectors. But we shall see

    Fans Toys Arcee looks great!!! http://news.tfw2005.com/2017/11/22/fans-toys-ft-24-rouge-masterpiece-scale-arcee-354017
  7. Saw a preview yesterday. It’s ok. All the reviews are spot on, kind of a mess but overall fun. Better than the rest of DC movies post Nolan with the exception of Wonder Woman
  8. Gundam Plamodel Thread IV

    Finally getting a good A.E.U.G team in MG scale with good to amazing articulation.
  9. Gundam Plamodel Thread IV

    Looks like I’m getting back into models. I got the ZZ Ver Ka on the way and this time I’m going to try and use the panel line paint by tamiya. This time I’m not going to go crazy and stick to some core suits and the Wing suits. Last time I went a bit nuts and had too many models. One question. How do you guys choose (if you do) between using gray or black panel line on white parts of a kit?
  10. Toys R Us files Chapter 11

    I was just in a TRU and man it was grim. I while it's the end of an era good riddance. They did it to themselves with low stocks of what people wanted, terrible layouts and selections and everything else that was just mentioned. The sections for action figures was so pathetic I was like Barnes and Noble is better than this.
  11. Legos, anyone?

    From what I've heard it's already sold out. Good thing I have the original to hold me over till I get the update.
  12. All things Voltron

    Bandai hinted that they may do a SoC version when the first season dropped on Twitter. I'll hold out for that. The legs on all the voltron toys seem really off and short compared to the animation
  13. Legos, anyone?

    Based on the instructions booklet that was teased I'm going with the much requested rerelease/ update of the UCS Millennium Falcon. However if this time there's no interior or major changes I'll stick with the one I already have. The set will be least 500 on the cheapest end
  14. Revoltech Everything

    It's gotten better. At least with this line they upped the scale to six inches with great accessories and obviously poseability. Yes the joints can be hideous but after awhile you don't notice them. Their Deadpool and Spidey have great reviews as long as they aren't in standing poses. Wolverine definitely looks like a ton of improvements have been made and from these pics above it's just going to keep getting better.
