  1. The Transformers Thread Next

    Definitely look into the BB7 and Yes Model seekers. Those are the companies that make the best seeker knockoffs. Avoid the Kubianbao Starscream, their seeker is just not as nice as the BB7 and Yes Model. I have a KBB Starscream, BB7 Skywarp, and Yes Model Thundercracker. The BB7 and Yes Model are pretty equal in quality and much better then the KBB. I would definitely keep an eye on the Maketoys Howling Meteor. The lastest hubbub over in the tfw2005 forum is that the latest pics of of it show the wings are hollow on the backside/bottom. MP-10 is a great Optimus Prime and MP-13 is a great Soundwave. Both are worth getting and should be easily found. I think MP-10 just got released again in the US at Toys R Us.

    Anyone know if the P-Bandai Missile Regults will be available in stores in Japan. Going to Tokyo in January and I was thinking of picking them up then instead of ordering online.
  3. Spiral War Is Back Home

    Nice! Just picked up the first three books. These sound interesting and I look forward to reading them.
  4. The Third Party Transformers Thread

    So my Spark Toys ST-02 Spartacus (War Within Megatron) came in. The figure is nice and near perfect replica of Don Figueroa's design.
  5. The Third Party Transformers Thread

    I'm currently looking at getting a KO or Official Bumblebee as well. I am also pondering between Fan Toys Grinder or the KO oversized Grimlock (Reximus Prime). I would love to hear your thoughts on the KO Bumblebee if you end up getting one.

  8. The Third Party Transformers Thread

    I have a KO MP-12 Lambor/Sideswipe and I am happy with it. I bought it not knowing they would rerelease the MP-12 so and at the time prices were getting a little crazy for the Takara/Tomy official one. Compared to my other official MPs (Prowl and Wheeljack), the fit on the MP-12 is not seem as good as the official ones. I don't have an official Lambor/Sideswipe to directly compare him to the KO. I think it's worth it depending on how much you can get the KOs for compared to the official versions.
  9. Soul of Chogokin - part II

    SOC Big O Rerelease P-Bandai repaint/Rerelease of the SOC Big O. I pre-ordered as I have been looking for one for while now. I found listings on Nippon Yasan and Anime Export.

    Nice, I have been waiting for the Mirage pre-order to go up. I am off Monday and live on Guam, 1 hour ahead of Tokyo time.
  12. I just looked at your build more in depth and I think you should look at another CPU cooler. I read up on the Cryorig C7 and it seems to be geared towards mini ITX builds, which are very small, compact PCs. The motherboard you listed is an ATX board, this standard size, and I also see you listed K CPUs, which are overclockable, and the reviews on the Cryorig C7 that I skimmed say it is not recommended for overclocking your CPU. Check the Cryorig H7, that appears to be the go to budget CPU cooler now. Also, unless you do video editing and other CPU intensive tasks, the I5-6600K would be the better pick over the I7-6700K
  13. Looks fine to me. Without a budget and usage it is hard to critique your parts, but everything looks solid to me. Have you tried putting up your build on pcpartpicker.com or the reddit buildapc thread? Just more folks that can comment and critique over there. Also, there is alot of buzz with the AMD Ryzen CPU and Vega GPUs scheduled to come out later this year. If you don't need the PC son, I would wait and see what AMD brings to the table.
  14. Saw this, made my day. The end of the trailer was all of the feels.
