Let’s see, had a bit of a catch up this week, so! Got a replacement TW Roar and UT Siegfried to replace the ones I murdered. XTB trailer in, honestly don’t really think this set was worth it now, the separate robots are pretty optional. Iron Factory IDW Magnus arrived and is super chonky. Ordered MMC Arcee n the Kapow restock on a whim too, whoops.
Smokey arrived today. Having seen the XTB madness with their Menasor I'm intrigued now to see what happens when FT finally give us Dead End. I reckon there's a nasty surprise coming along the same lines.
FT Spindrift 2.0 arrived out of nowhere. Family photos this weekend with FT Warpath and Beachcomber. Three of the five in MP form together! I'd really like to see them do Cosmos so I can lose that nagging feeling I should have bought x-transbots Klaatu. Although I think minibot-wise they've got Huffer on the slate next.
Tried several times today to get a decent picture of these three but I haven't managed it yet - can't get the colours right in the light. They're warmer than they look here. Spindrift is definitely the best looking of the three and gives a bit of life to Dunerunner - he alone looked a bit weak, but with Spindrift the aesthetic comes out properly. The weird one is Sheridan - he's pretty lanky and his look is more a toy/toon hybrid than the toon of the other two. Doesn't *quite* fit. Still, they do look good together.
I see what you mean there, Pins. Dunecomber does look a tad bland, and yes Sheridan does look a tad lean.
Spindrift 2 is perfection though. Just the right side of chunky. And has all the charm of the G1 stylisation mixed with modern articulation and a nip of Sunbow. Lovely looking figure. God I love Seaspray. Makes me wish I still collected the Masterpiece scale.
All amazing figures. I'm very envious.

I was the one who let you know, I was your sorry ever after, '84, '85. Give me new toys and I'll decide, but I'm really only after, '84, '85.
