  1. The Third Party Transformers Thread

    Hey thanks, man.. and yea I think it's a situation to where if you don't have a sideswipe this is an easy choice but if you have an official even though this is better it's not really quite enough to warrant double-dipping and trying to sell the OG at a loss unless you just plain want a better fit with the newer officials.
  2. The Third Party Transformers Thread

    The full review for BadCube's OTS-14 SteamRoll is up. http://kumastyledesigns.com/badcube-steamroll-review/ This one was a fun one to break down as it's definitely a piece with its highs and lows. The review goes into good depth but overall I'd say it's a solid piece and good buy but not likely to be the last SideSwipe figure you'll purchase even if a better one is years out. Here are some pics from the gallery portion:
  3. The Third Party Transformers Thread

    The windows making up the underside of his forearm is a pretty standard sideswipe attribute. I dig it but I guess i'm also used to it since it's common. For me when it comes to a lot of the fine detailing can stay gone on these. I want a shelf full of things that look like the cartoons have jumped out of the TV onto my shelf so i'm team plain Jane all day lmao
  4. The Third Party Transformers Thread

    I prioritize the written/pictorial reviews but yea both will be up Thursday morning (as always, appreciate your support kind sir!) And honestly, I think it's worth the "hype" (using loosely because the figure is actually damned good.) Whether it's because you want a more fitting piece to pair with Streaker or just like toon looks better in general, there's a lot of positives to switching over to this one from Takara, IMO (even though the Takara is "fine.")
  5. Your most recent Macross or toy purchase! General thread.

    Don't get a lot of transformers nowadays but Badcube sent over their SideSwipe and it's purrdy.
  6. The Transformers Thread Next

    Hey; thanks guys. Nice to start the week with reading some positive feedback!
  7. Soul of Chogokin - part II

    Got the full review and galla up for Sentinel's Re:Edit 13 Howard Armor. http://kumastyledesigns.com/sentinel-house-of-m-howard-review/ This is one of the most bizarre productions runs I've ever seen for one of the best figures I've ever owned. The review linked gives the full breakdown but here are a few pics from the gallery: Here's my personal favorite; a recreation of the House of M Chapter 3 "Doomsday" cover featuring Re:Edit 12 House of M Tony Stark as well:
  8. Your most recent Macross or toy purchase! General thread.

    Got the Figuarts Frieza 2.0 yesterday. I like it quite a bit.
  9. The Third Party Transformers Thread

    Yea. I'm doing some job trainings this week in a whole other city so it puts things in a whack hobby-wise... and I feel like Takara will certainly be anouncing a "redo" but the original still looks fine in the sense that it's a great toy homage; just horrible when put next to the new toon-accurate direction.
  10. The Third Party Transformers Thread

    So tomorrow BadCube's Sideswipe and Red Alert come but of course it's a day where I'm not going to be around until a bit later. Gotta' love it.
  11. Your most recent Macross or toy purchase! General thread.

    Definitely not new and in fact I've had it for some time but put it on a shelf and pretty much forgot about it until I finally caught up on some other photo/review work and can fit it in. Sentinel's Re: Edit House of M Howard Stark.
  12. The Third Party Transformers Thread

    Got the full review up for Iron Factory's IF EX-28 Burning Slug. http://kumastyledesigns.com/iron-factory-burning-slug-review/ Burning Slug is a very straightforward piece in that it's well-done per Iron Factory's high standards but unlike the recently released Cygnus doesn't do anything that really changes the game. The review on site gives it a full break down and here are a few pics from the gallery:
  13. The Third Party Transformers Thread

    Well, it's accurate the the character design alt mode so It's decent FWIW. There was some hemming and hawwing over at TFW about the use of his weapons as filler parts for tank mode but honestly I love it. To me it's genius engineering and looks as clean as a whistle. overall it's a really well-done piece and the only thing it's missing articulation-wise is wrist swivel. ------------------------------ Full review up in a bit. ------------------------------- The MoDEL002 Soundwave (MP) upgrades look really good. The cassette with the sound effects is an awesome piece.
  14. The Transformers Thread Next

    Have Takara MP Soundwave coming to fill out my Cons a bit along with a bunch of the tapes. Also ordered that Ocular Max Jaguar (Ravage.) I have this sinking feeling that the second it gets here a 2.0 or 3P upgrade will be anounced; ha.
