  1. Well, I got BB and SS for Christmas, and I love them both. However, you know I can't resist modding my TFs... First, Bumblebee's eyes; for whatever reason, Hasbro molded his eyes as a seperate piece. They further molded them in clear plastic, but didn't bother to go all the way and provide light-piping for them. I gave his face a new coat of silver, getting rid of his yellow-rimmed eye sockets, the yellow stripe across the bridge of his nose and the yellow "chin-strap" thing. I can't do anything about the light-piping ATM, but I COULD do something about their color: I coated the eye piece with clear blue; these pics are of me holding the front half of his head with tweezers under my work light. (Mine was clear, frosted plastic, but Wingus told me his had an amber tint. Make of that what you will.. *shrug*) So far, my only ideas for the light-piping problem are trying to recast at least the front half of his head in clear/clear-blue plastic and paint it yellow and silver, allowing for space to transfer light to his eyes; the other idea is using some pieces of sprue from the clear-parts tree of one of my models and gluing them to the back of the eye piece, then drilling corresponding holes in the back of his head for them to take in light. I've got a lot of touch-up painting to do on Starscream, but the first thing I felt the need to do was remount his null-ray cannons on his forearms instead of his shoulders, 'cause they really hinder posability up there. As for my paint touch-ups.. anybody happen to know the names of the red/burgandy and blue colors he's got?
  2. It's a good thing any of us bother to post replies to these threads, hm?
  3. Guys.. Starscream is MP-03. MP-04 is Convoy Complete Edition (Prime with Trailer).
  4. *sigh* When will you people grow up and get some facts? The youngest KISS Play girl is 18 bloody years old.
  5. Isn't Starscream MP-03, and MP-04 is Convoy-with-trailer?
  6. All I can offer is my usual reaction to these designs: Yeah. That is SO much more believable and realistic... Makes you wonder just what the hell kinda mess Bay's mind is, since he's the one who insists the "regular" TF design aesthetic wouldn't work, 'cause they're not "believable".
  7. Update! I'm also in the Anthrax contest and the Mudvayne contests! Please come check them out!
  8. I would like to invite everyone to come hear me sing at SingShot.com, and please vote for me in the Barenaked Ladies contest there! My personal SingShot page is at http://www.singshot.com/user.html?userId=23498 Direct link to my contest entry can be had by clicking on my sig. Thanks to everyone who goes and has a listen!
  9. The more I see, the more I'm sold. Even if I have to go through BBTS with their inflated prices and shipping. He will be mine. Oh, yessss...
  10. Here you go: http://www.tfmaster.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=5999
  11. My first thought was snippets from various stations strung together and sounding like Wreck-Gar's speech-pattern, without the accent.
  12. And your kitbashes stink. Tom Well, some of them -do- smell of glue and spray-paint.... @hmmm@
  13. its funny, cuz the autobots got their power boost from kissing teenage girls, so the decepticons went and started kissing babies, hoping to gain even more power as if transforming robots making out with teenage girls wasn't bad enough, now they are making out with babies funny tom @loll@ What a shame that needed explaining It didn't. I understood the "joke." It just wasn't funny. They aren't "pre-teens." The girls are 18+, regardless of how they're drawn. A kiss on the cheek (or faceplate) is not "making out."
  14. I clearly missed the funny part. *shrug*
  15. Frenzy looks good. It'll be real nice when the Rumble repaint comes out. @smilepunch@ RIBFIR!!
  16. The fact that it's been over a year since you asked should give you an answer... Ravage and Frenzy (Rumble is blue, dammit!) are, I think, the last Alts until after the movie, and the Cadillac (which would've been Megatron, according to Hasbro at Botcon 2006) has apparently been cancelled. I seriously doubt they'll pump out any character based on the 2004/2005 Mustang in 2007 and beyond, unless they re-issue Grimlock and/or Wheeljack in the bubble-box packaging.
  17. "Gundam"?? I hate Gundams, too.
  18. DLP, WHY in the WORLD do you think that Transformer SUCKED?! (lol) I always thought it was a great throwback to the movie Galvatron. You've got to realize that E. Galvatron had the purple colors before the recent Takara re-issue; didn't it? Aren't I right about that? And DLP, if it sucked so badly, you'd think I'd have an easier time finding it. I'd LOVE it if the masses thought it sucked. Then I might find one cheap. (lol) Seriously, it was a favorite and I hope to find it again...soon...for a reasonable price. e-Galvatron hurts to look at, as does the crappy purple reissue. e-Megatron is far better, asthetically. So is Superlink Galvatron-G. And what difference does it make which of the two had the purple colors first? Also, movie Galvatron was not shiny-metallic-mess-purple or violent-shade-of-violet/fushia. (Season 3 Galvy was, but I never liked it then, either)
  19. It's not that he was rare, per se.. more that he sucked so badly that very few people wanted him. *shrug*
  20. Am I the only one who actually read what the first post said? The "thief" didn't necessarily "steal" anything. They tore open one of the double-packs (i.e. two deluxes (in seperate deluxe cards) put together in a "Buy One, Get One" wrapper), took one and left Override. None of you know that they actually "stole" the thing. All you know is that someone wanted the deluxe that was packed with the Override, so they broke the BOGO pack and got the single deluxe. As to you guys who think people should be shot in the head or beaten with a bamboo cane for stealing... you need serious help. @hmmm@
  21. I'm pretty sure I saw it a year ago.
  22. Thanks to a discussion over at The AllSpark, I've been inspired to create this: The bumper and square bit in his belly will actually be silver, as will the fuel tanks on his thighs, and the clear parts may end up painted opaque red and blue. I made the dumper bed grey with dark blue as a throwback to G1's trailer. The flames (or whatever) on the bumper and his toes will obviously be left out. This has officially gone from digi-concept to real project. I used a Bendy Prime head in the digibash, but I have no extra Bendy heads and I have used/am using the heads from other Prime toys for my other Optimus KB's, so I've decided to build one. Behold! The front half of Cybertron Downshift's head (left over from my c-Shockwave) and the back half of Universe Ransack's (left from my "Optimus Hoist"), along with judicious applications of epoxy putty = Optimus Prime. So far, I've got putty in place for a remolded faceplate, as well as a new crest and smoothing out the crest at the back of Ransack's head. I'm still contemplating what to do for Op's "ears".. so far, my only idea is to simply sculpt them out of more putty. I'm trading some stuff to my buddy for his damaged Demolishor (the left elbow snapped, but he sent me a pic of it and I'm sure I can fix it), so when he sends it to me, this project can really get started.
