He's samurai themed? Anyway, I meant "samurai themed" in the Bludgeon's Pretender shell sense.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (22 January 2017 - 07:15 AM)

Armada Starscream?

@  Pennpenn : (22 January 2017 - 07:13 AM)

Actually I'm vaguely surprized samurai themed Seekers haven't somehow congealed within the TF brand at some point.

@  Telly : (21 January 2017 - 08:26 PM)

if they dont seek pizza im out

@  Bass X0 : (21 January 2017 - 02:40 PM)

Samurai Seeker Jets!

The Big Cheese is the villain, who's lower than low. It's a rotten shame he lives in Little Tokyo.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (21 January 2017 - 12:38 PM)

For the kaiju/restaurant theme, better be the Samurai Pizza Cats instead.

@  Rycochet : (21 January 2017 - 12:28 PM)

I prefer Mighty Morphin' Meower Rangers.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (21 January 2017 - 12:07 PM)

Okay, that got too weird, let's just use the Megazordenny's instead.

@  ▲ndrusi : (21 January 2017 - 09:20 AM)

no, no, not all hope for the characters, all hope for the viewer understanding what the hell is going on.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (21 January 2017 - 07:33 AM)

Isn't that like.. every second spent watching Eva? *hides!*

@  Telly : (21 January 2017 - 02:26 AM)

usually about halfway through, when all hope seems lost

@  Copper Bezel : (21 January 2017 - 02:01 AM)

I understand using Eva to fight monsters, but where does Bob come into it?

@  PlutoniumBoss : (21 January 2017 - 01:29 AM)

Of course we'll need Bob EVAs to fight all these critters...

@  PlutoniumBoss : (21 January 2017 - 01:21 AM)

Or Otachipotle.

@  RichardT1977 : (20 January 2017 - 11:03 PM)

Sorry Waspinator, but Sean Bean already reserved that one.

@  Pennpenn : (20 January 2017 - 09:51 PM)

Isn't the answer "Pepperoni and Cheese"?

@  Pennpenn : (20 January 2017 - 07:24 PM)

Fair enough, sorry. Although, I think as more people get upset you're going to see it leaking out more.

@  TheMightyMol... : (20 January 2017 - 06:25 PM)

Can the politics stay in P&R? I don't really need an emetic that badly.

@  Pennpenn : (20 January 2017 - 05:37 PM)

All of Trump's base are stone cold morons, so there's that. Then again, a lot of people would argue that America has nevr been "great", or even when it is there's plenty to bring down it's score.

@  Vexwing : (20 January 2017 - 04:18 PM)

A lot of Trump's base would probably claim it stopped being great 8 years ago.

@  Locoman : (20 January 2017 - 03:44 PM)

And today is National Cheese Lover's Day, apparently, so perhaps we should make America grate again while we're at it

@  Bass X0 : (20 January 2017 - 03:43 PM)

How long has it not been great for?

@  Nevermore : (20 January 2017 - 02:34 PM)

Finally, America is great again.

@  wonko the sane? : (20 January 2017 - 12:03 PM)

Me too!

@  Arazyr : (20 January 2017 - 10:08 AM)

My daughters and I have been looking forward to that!

@  Benbot : (20 January 2017 - 09:44 AM)

Nevermind that. Today is a day to celebrate, because season 2 of Voltron is up on Netflix!

@  ShadowMan024 : (19 January 2017 - 06:51 PM)

Past 8 years? Try "past 241."

@  Xellos : (19 January 2017 - 06:44 PM)

So basically the same as the past 8 years. Guess that works too.

@  TheMightyMol... : (19 January 2017 - 06:25 PM)

We as a nation either drank too much or not enough. It's difficult to say, really.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (19 January 2017 - 06:10 PM)

Isn't America being crazy drunk how we got in this situation in the first place?

@  BlackMax : (19 January 2017 - 04:18 PM)

I plan on being very American about every single injustice our new leader perpetrates ("American" of course meaning "annoyed and loud").

@  TheMightyMol... : (19 January 2017 - 02:38 PM)

I plan to just stick my fingers in my ears and pretend I don't hear anything.

@  Bass X0 : (19 January 2017 - 02:26 PM)

I recommend America just get crazy drunk for the next four years. It's the only way you're going to get through them.

@  Paladin : (19 January 2017 - 08:34 AM)

everyone go vote for Guilermo Del Toro. We need a Hellboy 3 now more than ever. https://www.bleeding...nt-hellboy-iii/

    DEAL WITH IT

I was in Poundland the other day (basically a One Dollar Store for you Yanks) when a knockoff of a Cybertron Legends Thundercracker caught my eye. Crafted from green plastic and with minimal yellow and grey paint apps, it looked like a very cheap version of my fancharacter Fulcrum. What the hell, I thought, grabbing it off the rack. It's only one quid.

So I've started painting it.

Here he is after the first couple of coats of Tamya spray (Olive Drab 2). While he's already green, this base coat will help any further paint apps stick. At this stage you can still see bits of his original yellow paint apps showing through. Don't worry, I dealt to those.



...and here's the jet mode after another couple of coats of spray and some detailing work. I'm using all Citadel paints. The green has been given a Badab Black ink wash to bring out the lines. The grey is Codex Grey, another black ink wash, then the panels were lined with Fotress Grey and corrected with a bit more Codex. The yellow is an Iyaden Darksun basecoat, and the nosecone is straight Chaos black.



Next step is to give the green the same treatment as the grey, lining it with Camo green then corrected with Catachan Green. The engines will be picked out in Boltgun Metal, drybrushed with Mithril Silver, given a black ink wash, then some Tin Bitz applied to represent scorching. Finally he cockpit will be painted with a reflective yellow scheme.

Then it's on to the robot mode!

You know. That KO looks better than the original. I got mine in a cheap sale (like half, half off lying in a pile of Cyb Unicrons) and it whasn't even worth the 5$ it cost. It doesn't peg together at all.

Great vehicle mode though.

Either way, this looks promising. How are you doing with the hammer, or am I confusing fancharacters here?

You're not confused, but the trouble is that he doesn't have any fist holes! And while I could drill some, the plastic would probably shatter. So I'm afraid he'll have to do without.

You could do the Skids version of constructing something that clips ON the fist rather than slides into it. Ofcourse that may end up to be a lot of work.

I'd try drilling it out with a pin-vise for starters. You could probably do that carefully enough to justify the attempt, or possibly get fists from another TF or KO to use instead.

Transformers is a brand that really has something for everyone. We are a darn lucky fandom.
