I know this isn't exactly what we talked about, but what kind of stand are you using for Sunstorm?
I hate (read:love) looking at your Alternity pictures. It makes me want to spend money I know I should not spend.
They look pretty poseable from what I see here, but I was wondering if there were any downsides to them. Anything about them you don't like?
Really nice gallery OM! I'm liking the look of this figure more than the original Ratchet. Do you prefer one to the other?
Thanks, Randy! Well, I like the original simply because it evokes the essence of all the character was for most of the show. This version has a younger, happier look to it. I should have included a side by side face shot to show the difference, but it is pretty visible here.
This version is neat because it looks younger and stronger, with the complete crest on the head etc. I also really like the articulation, as he is super posable. The transformation is fun and decently challenging for this size and line.
Ultimately, I like them both for different reasons, but I would fidget with this one more due to novelty. I sure hope we get Ironhide down the road, because he would look great as this mold. The rear bumper/shock paddles make for a neat weapon. Before I finish, the EMP from Lockdown fits way better on this mold than the original.
Now, while I am at it, Randy and I have been backlogged, and we have a bit of catching up to do on older molds. I realize many of you may have them already, but we are going to do our best to catch up while we wait for the new stuff to start showing up. So, here is:Animated Deluxe Waspinator
Makes me sad we did not get more beasts from Animated (there is never enough), especially a Buzzsaw (You listening, Hasbro?)
