    I still need that Galvatron for my Movie display. Well, I think I really want the Asian version, but they've evaded me every time I decide to get one.

    Ok yeah, do not buy GDO Cliffjumper. The part that broke on mine seems to be really widesrpead.

    Well he mentions his is the FE Terrorcon, which is the same mold, but maybe there was a defect with that particular production? Is yours the GDO Cliff?

    Mine has been fine, and I've transformed it several times just because I enjoy its transformation

    I'd say buy it, if it breaks then return it, that's what warranties are for

    We've since had confirmation, by way of the Cybergundam blog, that this is a Bandai / Tamashii Nations release rather than a new Disney Label item.
    thank god

    If no one here wants them you should just put them on Ebay, you'll get more doing it that way anyway.

    I mean, if I didn't already have them I'd take them in a heartbeat, but I don't really need more of them.

    QUIT REMINDING ME THAT EXISTS

    But yeah, I'd love to, but I don't have the rest of him to work with, and I absolutely cannot get that deep into it. It's bad enough that TRU MP-10 broke my Masterpiece cherry and I'm now trawling eBay looking for cheap Starscreams and Rodimus...es, or that @Schide just posted that HOS Screecher review and goddamnit do I want all the HOS figures ever and blaaaaarg

    I keep bidding on a gray Takara Starscream from Canada.

    I don't even WANT a gray Takara Starscream from Canada.

    What the fuck is happening to me.

    30 minutes left.

    Please, somebody outbid me on this thing.

    I wonder if it's an across the board thing, or if there was just a bad run or them, or...I dunno, something something dark energon. I haven't seen any problems with mine in the area that people are complaining about, and I got pretty clumsy with mine the first times I transformed him.

    Did yours break in the same spot as most of those, @Schide? For some reason, the way you described it made me think that part of what ends up becoming his chest plates just kind of crumbled, which I really did think wouldn't look all that bad, considering. All of these complaints seem to be about the grill/front bumper/horns area, which wouldn't be cool at all. I mean, that's his ass in robot mode. I don't want a robot with a flaky broken ass.

    Yeah mine broke in the exact same way that the picture in the link shows. The two hinge things on the underside of his hood just broke right off, so not that hood part just has to hang there. I might very well have described it badly at first. Yours might never break if transform it a ton of times, but I'd just be real careful with it knowing that it could happen.

    Did you win that auction?

    Do I really want to spend $75 on 4/5 parts of Bruticus and the gift set? Ugh. I think I can rationalize skipping the four due to the missing one. Close one there, wallet.

    Well shipping wasn't free after removing those guys, so I might as well just get it off Amazon if I want that gift set.

    Nah, I got sniped at the last second. Better this way anyway. It was a decent price, but I don't think I could come up with a good explanation for where the giant gray toy robot came from to my wife.

    the only thing I can think of is that I heard some people with the SDCC bruticus were buying retail blast off as a preferred arm for the set

    but that would be too depressing

    people with one blast off taking it away from the rest of us...

    see what you would do is when she walks up with it and asks, "Honey where did this come from," you look the transformer in the eyes and start explaining and then you stop for a second and look back and forth between her and the transformer and say, "Oh sorry honey, I keep getting you mixed up with the lifeless robot since YOU HATE FUN WHO CARES WHERE IT CAME FROM IT'S AWESOME"

    It'd be more like, "I thought you said that Optimus Prime over there was your last big purchase for a while."

    And then Optimus Prime would be all disappointed, since lying to your wife isn't the right of all sentient beings or something.

    And then stupid Starscream would see it as his opportunity to try to usurp me. AGAIN.

    That's crap. HTS should have done a mandatory trade-in program for people who already had one from SDCC.

    ...don't ask me how that would work.

    So, growing up, one of my favorite Transformers was Brawn, mostly because of scenes like this:
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=r86KrMJ29lE

    As I got older and was able to search for Transformers on ebay and the like, I was always disappointed that G1 Brawn looked like this:
    G1-toy_Brawn.jpg

    The Legends toy was a step up, but was way too small to fit with my Classics display:
    Universe2008_Legends_AutobotBrawn.jpg

    I was mega-excited to get this bad boy in the mail today:

    Cliffjumper is holding Brawn's shotgun, because Brawn doesn't use guns. He punches the shit out of things.

    Lies.

    Dude, Brawn wakes up after the Decepticons fly out, pilots the shuttle to safety, then he and Snarl spend the rest of the movie holding off the Combaticons and Stunticons so they can't join Devastator and totally fuck up Autobot City.

    Well, as the previous video clearly shows, Brawn can take a direct hit from Megatron without so much as a scratch. He's obviously faking it for a tactical advantage later on.

    For further confirmation, compare the Decepticons who entered there shuttle there to the ones that leave it later. The ones that don't leave? Those are the ones that Brawl killed off-camera.
