Thanks. I had pre-ordered and paid up front for KFC's version, actually. Got tired of waiting and decided to make my first ever MakeToys purchase. I'll probably be making a few more after getting these guys... the quality, sculpt, paint and finish are all superb. Plus the fact that there's minimal parts forming helped sell me on their version as well.

It's a pretty good game if you're a die hard G1 fan. The cell-shaded artwork is stunning... the character intros hit all those nostalgic notes (as do the voices)... they even found someone to voice Starscream that sounds eerily like Chris Latta (RIP). As far as gameplay goes, the chapters are long as hell and not too overly difficult. Ammo is not unlimited.. not sure on replay value as I haven't made it through yet. But there is 4 levels of difficulty with rewards for completing each one.

I've gotten a couple goodies lately as well, just been busy and not much time spent here. I see you have he Igear Specialist Bros. in that one pic RB. Looks like he scale well with MP car boys, no?

Yeah, those iGear Van Bros. are full head height higher than even the tallest carbot. To me, that close to good enough. 8)

It has been quiet around here... Too quiet.

Nice haul Roadbuster. Tracks looks like so much awesome. They brought his G1 self to life very well. I always liked the G1 figure, and the MP one is pretty great.

My better half gave me MP21G Bumble for an anniversary gift. She knew I wanted an MP Bumblebee. And, he'll do well. I've also picked up Trypticon, the current legends run of Shockwave, Pipes, Chopshop, & Buzzsaw. Today I picked up Swindle, Brawl, Vortex, & Blast Off. Too bad Onslaught wasn't out yet.

After Christmas, I plan on picking up MP-24 Starsaber. Been real interested in picking him up.

Waiting on MP, Road Rage. Couldn't pass up a reissue Trypticon on Amazon last week for about $100. I'm also waiting on Takara's Night Bird. I also got the Transformers Devastation game.

Yeah Amazon had Trypty for great prices this holiday season. Makes me want to kick myself (repeatedly) for pulling the trigger so soon.

MP Star Saber is on his way. :) I already cleared room off the shelf He'll be next to CW Devy (doesn't make much sense, but for now that is where the room is). I'm very excited! Too bad TFCog stopped the dubbing, I liked their production.

Hey guys! It's been awhile since I was on here. I'm kinda caught up with CW combiners, The Warriors United Devastator showed up on my doorstep yesterday while I was out, I opened him up last night and let me say I'm glad I paid extra for him (The wife actually paid for him as a anniversary gift) The last thing I bought besides the combiners was Legends Pipes.

It's probably been quite a while, but there's been a bit added to my collection.

For now, though, it was mainly just the Universal exclusive Evac and TR legends Gnaw. I absolutely love Gnaw, and I need to build an army!

The last post was in 2017. I can't even remember what I've gotten since then. Some highlights though:

Pretty much the majority of Combiner Wars and Titans Returns combiners.

Masterpiece Ultra Magnus and Tracks, Movie Masterpiece Ratchet and Ironhide.

Siege? Omega Supreme. Last thing I bought was Kingdom Galvatron, and he has been on my list for a very long time. I've pretty much gotten a lot of Deluxe and Voyagers from Siege, Earthrise and Kingdom lines. I love the modern engineering and G1 looks.
