Finally, some more damned unlocks…

…namely Cindersaur, Outback, and Novastar. Only awaiting the acquisitions of Wreck-Gar and Optimal Optimus to be rid of the last of the red lines on the Chart of the Cards. Still breathing a somewhat disappointed sigh of relief that Nemesis Prime didn’t have cards and all Throne of the Prime units had the same card. That’s right–disappointed yet relieved. Dichotomous, I know.

In other news–or lack thereof–there have only been four votes in the poll for the next custom prize. You miserable flesh creatures disappoint me. Really, even if you don’t wind up with a horse in this race, you still wanna see somethin’ cool, don’tcha? Cast a vote OR I’LL PICK SOMETHING MYSELF BWAHAHAHAHAAAAA–‘scuse me.

TerRAAAAHRcons Unlocked

Apologies to any denizens of Fond du Lac, WI, buuuuuuut either there’s still half a case to be brought out or someone nailed their own trio beforehand–doesn’t matter; I picked your Walmart clean. Enjoy the drive north. < / jerk>

Blot, Sinnertwin, and Cutthroat have been unlocked…and if you’ll have a look at the updated Chart of the Cards, perhaps you’ll be able to figure out what it is I’m planning.

Shouldn’t be terribly difficult to suss…

Frickin’ Inferno…

…yes, you’re nice and all, annalotta customizers are gonna remove your heads and replace ’em with the ones from Hot Spot for a super-simple Fire Chief/Guard City go, but dammit, I should not be finding you with disgusting ease when I have yet to see a single Elita-1 or Hun-Gurrr out in the wilds of brick-&-mortar retail.

Your presence vexes me so…oh, and THANX THE MUCHLY for bringing your pal Grimmy along for the ride, we REALLY NEEDED MORE OF HIM ABSOLUTELY INDEED.

go stand in the corner of my shelves and don’t waste time imagining anyone else is gonna get plugged into your sockets


(ahem) So, yeah, Inferno is unlocked for submission.


i hope people guard city the hell outta him   /jerk

Quick Update 001

…right, ‘cus there’ll ever be A HUNDRED such updates…well, maybe I shouldn’t assume…mmf.

Just found my first Rodimus Unicronus a short time ago, and have another one coming in the mail. In a derptastic sort of celebration, I’m not just unlocking his cards for entry–Rodimus Unicronus is a FREE-FOR-ALL. ALL Rodimus Unicronus cards are eligible for entry, whether or not I have aalready secured a copy of the one you send. The Chart of the Cards has been updated to reflect this, instead of tracking my gets & needs for Roddy-U. This is currently limited to Rodimus Unicronus only, but with the distribution this line is seeing…who knows, I may pull this dumb PAAARRR-TYYY stunt with another release in-future.

I’ve picked up SHATTERED GLASS OPTIMUS PRIME from Shawn today; the finishing touches (the stickers) have been applied. Watch for a pic later today or this weekend, if a ballgame or the backyard grillin’ isn’t taking all your attention.

Where I Type Words But Everyone Just Looks At Pictures

Which is understandable, I suppose. Frankly, I should’ve done the something something darksyde (heh) riff with this post. I could type nonsense, go all ipsum lorem, begin a grossly thorough play-by-play of the Brewers game I’m attending this very second, or write a fifty-three page screed on the value of multiversal singularities to the Transformers universe and why everyone who complained about ’em are puppykickers who hate fun–but nope, you’re here for the photos.

My chest…my bloody chest…

I’d like to think that every time Shattered Glass Optimus Prime selects a new slogan to pair with a new body, he paints each new motto onto his frame using the curdled Energon of fallen Decepticons and/or any Autobot that’s pissed him off enough to warrant execution.

I mean, if you’re gonna badguy, badguy RIGHT, right?


We’ll, uh, just continue to fail to question why he tags himself in English when he hasn’t so much as stepped foot on Earth. Nope. We’ve had multiple chances to do so; we’re gonna zip our lips and shut the hell up about it.

…his penmanship is atrocious.

One of these things is not like the other…

…one of these things is a head.


These panels, as shown above, aren’t even done yet. Shawn suggested a further improvement, and I was loathe to change the way they look, but I think we’ll all agree it was the right call, when next they’re seen.

–right, right, there’s a head there, too. Nice, huh?

With the further news on Nemesis Prime being revealed in the past handful of days, I really wish we had access to its ‘Pax’ head for this project for no other reason than it’s more Optronix than Orion.

Could always dremel Orion’s mouth off…probably not.
