Optimal Megatron: At this point, after several moves, it'd be a 2nd project just to drag out and catalog all the stuff I have.

Optimal Megatron: Amusingly, my collection is pretty complete still mostly because I never actually got into the hassle of figuring out how to list and sell things.
Aug 12, 2020 12:59:09 GMT -5
iacon45: I also sold it, along with all my sealed Alts, a few years back.

Greatshot: That's one toy I'm not at all upset with leaving in the box
Aug 11, 2020 17:41:25 GMT -5
iacon45: I had both Alt. Gridlock and Wheeljack. I never had the (dis) pleasure of transforming them since they were a part of my MISB days
Aug 11, 2020 15:47:58 GMT -5
iacon45: Welcome to the closet of half assed bots....I smell an Island of Misfit Toys spin off.
Aug 11, 2020 15:46:29 GMT -5
Greatshot: But yeah, Grimlock, JFC, that figure is still half-transformed in my closet, i'm pretty sure.

Greatshot: took me about 37 seconds before I yanked his battery out forever.

Greatshot: I strangely never really had a problem with ROTF. For some reason he wasn't too difficult for me, despite everyone else thinking so. Word part of him was "I am Optimus Prime. I am Optimus Prime. I am Optimus Prime" every time you touched him
Aug 11, 2020 15:10:14 GMT -5
iacon45: And there were plenty of times I wanted to throw Leader ROTF Optimus into same f'ing wall.

iacon45: Alt. Grimlock to MD must be like the bat credit card to Nostalgia Critic.

Matrix Dragon: *Storms in* FUCKING ALTERNATORS GRIMLOCK! *Storms back out.*
Aug 11, 2020 5:39:34 GMT -5
Greatshot: Yeah i agree. there's a big difference between "this is a satisfyingly complex transformation that looks and works nicely" and "i'ma fuckin throw Alternator Grimlock into a wall"
Aug 10, 2020 21:54:30 GMT -5
iacon45: ROTF figures looked good but I hated transforming them. I like a figure that I can pull off a shelf and transform without having to relay on manuals or online videos to convert.
Aug 7, 2020 16:12:03 GMT -5
iacon45: Sometimes simple works. I don't mind basic transformations as long as the end result looks decent. Sky Lynx accomplishes both.
Aug 7, 2020 16:10:08 GMT -5
Optimal Megatron: So Sky Lynx is fun. Not nearly as complicated as Jetfire, but I don't think that's a bad thing. Poseable as hell, though. His base mode is kinda simple, but it makes a good launch platform.
Aug 6, 2020 23:46:42 GMT -5
iacon45: He is. Haven't tried base mode yet but bird/lynx and combined modes are pretty fun. Only complaint I have is the effect parts. It's Omega's but unpainted and made of cheaper plastic. The effect parts don't hold together in the larger bloosh set up
Aug 3, 2020 18:49:05 GMT -5
Blade Raider: Can't wait for Sky Lynx. He looks fun.
Aug 3, 2020 18:10:07 GMT -5
iacon45: I am LOVING Earthrise Sky Lynx. He is pretty magnificent.
Aug 3, 2020 17:42:27 GMT -5
Optimal Megatron: So finished the Netflix Siege show. Probably a solid 7/10 for me. A few weak points, but overall good and frankly, the best thing I can say is that it ended and I wanted to see more.
