What? They made a new Mummy movie and cast Tom Cruise? I love Cruise, but isn't he kind of expensive? Kind of stupid to rely on his star power to boost a new franchise instead of...like...good writing? I hope it had both, but I'm not holding my breath.

Now if only I could get one of my GoG games to work right (well series of games) :(

I should have said "not staying together", but anyway.

My Astrotrain had that but some floor polish on the tabs helped.

@  Pennpenn : (01 December 2016 - 06:48 AM)

On the subject of recalcitrant TR voyagers, does anyone else have an issue with Sentinel Prime's legs staying together in space-brick mode?

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (01 December 2016 - 03:40 AM)

Holy crap or holy carp? ;)

@  BlackMax : (30 November 2016 - 08:41 PM)

...holy crap it works!

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (30 November 2016 - 07:14 PM)

Hold the button (orange spot) on his chest and push them down till they click.

@  BlackMax : (30 November 2016 - 06:05 PM)

The horns can never be kept down! \m/. >_< .\m/

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (30 November 2016 - 04:19 PM)

I was about to say.. I have no problem getting him to stay together in any mode. The horns was the worst thing for me. But I got that fixed.

@  unitremover : (30 November 2016 - 12:26 PM)

...and I just figured that out too

@  unitremover : (30 November 2016 - 12:24 PM)

Oh, hey, I figured it out. Now if I can just find a way to get his upper and lower body to stay pegged together in robot mode I'll be in business.

@  TheMightyMol... : (30 November 2016 - 12:12 PM)

Cold showers.

@  unitremover : (30 November 2016 - 12:11 PM)

Oh, what's the trick to getting his horns to stay down?

@  unluckiness : (30 November 2016 - 08:26 AM)

Alolan baristas say the darndest things

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (30 November 2016 - 08:26 AM)

I like Alpha trion. Just gotta see if his horns will stay down now that I learned the trick.

@  Robowang : (30 November 2016 - 07:55 AM)

Alpha Trion is awesome. Fun transformation, beefy robot mode, sweet sword, amazing headsculpt, and great colors.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (30 November 2016 - 05:48 AM)

Why? Alpha Trion is pretty cool, even with some flaws. He reminds me of BW2 designs.

@  unitremover : (29 November 2016 - 11:34 PM)

I should've listened to what everybody else said about Alpha Trion and not gotten lured in by the sweet siren call of a new toy evoking Vector Prime

@  Msol : (29 November 2016 - 10:12 PM)

Hot damn Astrotrain is way better than I was expecting.

@  BlackMax : (29 November 2016 - 06:32 PM)

I would've guessed that unaired theme for Beast Machines.

@  Gizmoboy : (29 November 2016 - 04:11 PM)

yes, Lightbright is correct on that one

That'd be CW Ultra Magnus, I would think.

Hm. Titans Return Rowboat Girlyman?

@  BlackMax : (28 November 2016 - 09:09 PM)

TR Alpha Trion looks like a Space Marine Primarch. Specifically, I'm thinking Fulgrim.

im gonna open a competing pet store and call it "petsdom". lets see how many people can figure this out lol

@  Broadside : (28 November 2016 - 06:39 PM)

"Petsmart" is actually an example of bad Romanisation that's become entrenched in the fandom.

@  ShadowMan024 : (28 November 2016 - 06:27 PM)

No no no, it's SPELT "Petsmart," but it's pronounced "Throatwobbler Mangrove."

@  Dracula : (28 November 2016 - 06:23 PM)

It's pronounced "I can't go here with my wife because she'll cry when she goes to the cat adoption area"

@  MEDdMI : (28 November 2016 - 06:18 PM)

"peat's-may-rtt"

@  TheMightyMol... : (28 November 2016 - 05:03 PM)

It's pronounced "Petsmart". How else would you say it?

@  Bass X0 : (28 November 2016 - 05:02 PM)

Is "Petsmart" pronounced, "PetsMart" or "PetSmart"?

@  Whirl Maximus : (28 November 2016 - 04:31 PM)

The Legion of Doom liked my work on Black Friday I got a job offer! See you Doomsday folks.

I had some spare KO seeker parts after I got replacement parts for some broken ones. I realized I could do something cool with them!









The original Starscream KO looked like this:

The arms and lower legs are from the Thundercracker KO; I did not paint the Starscream limbs. The face and torso were painted using Formula P3 paints.

fantastic...I know it will defeat the purpose, but could you slap his wings back on and take an alt mode pic. sort of an Action Master Starscream before the AM "upgrade"

I'm not sure I see the point in leaving the wings off of a viable transforming toy just to make it more "Action Master", but it does look good.

I kept the foot wings on for balance, actually. He doesn't have much foot without them.

I had a heavy decision between what you see here and having him still transform. If he did transform, the colors would have been pretty mismatched. I'm not sure if I would have gone for a jet mode that was more Starscream or Thundercracker colored. I will actually reuse the wings on another KO figure whose wings were broken. I plan to take a picture of what I have right now pending being designed and painted, it might help to make some more sense.

Basically I had the kotoys.com three seekers (skywarp, thundercracker, and starscream) and two ramjets (one orange, one white). The white one has a broken leg. Skywarp and TC arrived each with one broken wing (though I have received replacements from kotoys, awesome). So now with some swapping and modding I have...

The AM Starscream you see here.
Skywarp body with Starscream wings and possibly Ramjet arms (one Skywarp has two right fists)
Thundercracker/Starscream mismatched body but with Ramjet wings

All I will have leftover is some mismatched wings (some broken), the blue ankle wings, and the Starscream nosecone... I think. Anyway I won't be very wasteful. icon-hotrod.gif

What was the decision for giving deluxe Starscream more black on his lower legs than on the AM? And there is no grey just above the deluxe's waist like there is on the AM. I can forgive the silver on his feet and the painted air intakes though but I consider the previous two points to be inaccuracies. He would also look a lot better with a Decepticon insignia on his left shoulder.

Just because you can't win doesn't mean you stop working.

Interesting points. Perhaps I will make those changes. All of the paint or lack thereof (with the exception of the red chest, blue pelvis, and yellow air intakes) was that way on the original. I did not consider adhering quite so closely to the original, but I can and probably will put a symbol on at least.
