The windshield alignment issues is the main reason I skipped Cordon and Spinout. It is a big flaw IMO. I am also a fan my transformers spending some time in alt mode, if it is a good alt mode. I tend not to pickup mold mates when there are problems with the mold (if they bother me enough).

Re: I just transformed...

CW Ultra Magnus, because my 3 year old asked to play with a toy he doesn't normally get to play with. I regularly let him play with Titan's Return Powermaster Optimus, so it's the same basic idea. But Ultra Magnus is still the best, what Ultra Magnus should be, and how he should transform. The Siege/Kingdom figure isn't even close.

I got the Takara LG Magnus and I absolutely agree, he's a beaut

Siege for fiddling, but CW/LG is the "good copy" for your display

CW Magnus next to POTP Rodimus is a great duo.
I highly doubt Commander class Rodimus, minus the trailer will have the same height or presence that POTP Rodimus has.

POTP Rodimus is another one I recently transformed with my kid to show him the little hot rod bot and the space winibago at its finest.

Re: I just transformed...

I just bought a CW Bombshell from some China ebay seller and it arrived today. So that's what was latest for me.


Seems to not be a knockoff. the finish is a little rough so maybe it's a factory second or something? even though it's in a proper north american distribution packaging.


Anyway as for the figure, I like the transformation. Very much like classic G1 Bombshell (another figure from my youth that I'm happy to have gotten an updated version of)


Aside from fussing and fidgeting to get his bot arms in place on the insect underbelly there wasn't anything terribly wrong or bad with the transformation. He does feel a bit stiffer and more fragile than TR Kickback or PotP Shrapnel though. Which is odd considering that he's the chunkiest bot of the trio.

I liked PotP Rodimus when I got it, and eventually ended up backing off on my vow not to get Rodimus Unicronus (and ended up happy to be able to pair him with Nemesis Prime) but while I like the Hot Rod figure a fair bit, I just can't get around the awful setup of making Rodimus' arms out of Hot Rod's splayed legs. It gives him almost no useful arm articulation and forces him to have strange shoulders that hinge up from his neck, reminding me of the exoskeleton power loader thing from Alien.


Getting everything to line up for the Rodimus vehicle mode, with the car nestled under the trailer the right way and the panels tabbing into its sides was also a bit finicky.

Re: I just transformed...

Studio Series '86 Scourge

This is my favourite Scourge that I have in my collection. Obviously far more screen-accurate than the generations or Titans Return versions. Also transformable without the instructions (unlike the Generations version - what's up with those arms?)

Having said that, the transformation is somehow not as satisfying as some other recent figures. Maybe it's just me.

Actually I did I don’t have the display set up for them yet. So I have them in alt modes in storage bins since most alt modes are compressed. And with this pandemic and not being able to work, transforming transformers from alt to robot mode snap a few pics, helps the stress levels go down

Re: I just transformed...

Transformed the Botropolis deluxes again this weekend, love those decos

"Astrowave"s head split in two while rotating (!!!), but just pegs back together easy and appears to stay put - might need to glue it

"Astroworks" got a slight paint QA on his mouthplate, where it maybe doesn't look like the whole surface of the mouthplate was painted - oh well, maybe have to touch it up myself if I really give a damn

These are handsome boys though
