Greigio asked me to upload the design I did for his version of Grimlock from Transformers: Meta. Check it out, it's pretty cool :D

Ever Growing Crew
Of the official figures that are out, the only characters that I really feel I'm missing from my Lost Light crew are Ratchet, Drift, Chromedome and Rewind

I'll probably get Gen. Drift and Prime Ratchet at some point in the next month or two, and then maybe try and get TFCC Chromedome and Rewind at a later stage. CW First Aid will probably end up there too if he looks good, and same goes for leader Magnus

As some of you may have seen, I got a huge haul today, so I figure I might as well review a figure or two from it

I'm gonna start with Arcee, because she's probably my favourite of the lot. When this figure was first revealed, I wasn't sure what to make of it. Over time, my opinion slowly changed as I saw more pictures of her and read all of the positive things people were saying about the figure

I'll begin by talking about the vehicle mode. It's a great representation of Arcee's hover-car from the original cartoon, but other than that, it doesn't do anything particularly special. It rolls nicely, and there's plenty of places to plug in her various weapons. It's a nice little car. Certainly unique, if nothing else. Speaking of weapons, she comes with two pistols and two swords, the latter of which is a nice nod to her Animated and IDW incarnations
The transformation is simple enough, but also enjoyable - rotate her legs down and compress her hips; move the arms out to the side; fold her chest and stomach down to to reveal her head; fold up the front and back panels of the car. Done

Her robot mode is where this figure really shines. She is super posable, and she balances really well in a bunch of poses. Due to the fact that there isn't really any vehicle kibble on her arms or legs - other than a wheel in the back of each of her thighs - you can get her into a lot of really neat striking poses that most other figures wouldn't be able to achieve. Even her somewhat large back-pack doesn't provide any hindrance. Her arms might look quite fragile, but they're actually quite the opposite. She even has ratchet joints in her elbows. I'll take bunch of pictures tomorrow just to show you
She's got a pretty good paint job, a nice even placement of pink and white, with some black and blue highlights. Her light piping is really good. I'm gonna have to take a picture of that tomorrow to show it off. She can store her guns or swords on her hips, and they can either be held in her hands or pegged into her forearms. Mine has the open hand, which means that the weapons can't peg all the way in, but I don't mind too much because they still sit in her hands pretty securely. They don't wobble or fall out easy or anything like that. She's got a cute face, which is very G1. Regardless I still like to imagine her as a somewhat ruthless assassin. With all those weapons, how can you not?

Long story short, I really like this figure. The hands are the only real flaw I can think of, and even then it's pretty minor. She's pretty fantastic, and if you see her in stores, do not hesitate to pick her up. She's fantastic.

I love just making up ideas. It's so fun! Gigantic cyborg raptor alien thing with knife hands, it's a beautiful little muse :D

I would, but, you know, chainsaws. Not fun to come across!

I've doodled Gigan recently, and I think that giving him a physiology akin to a velociraptor would be awesome; a sort of sleeker smaller Kaiju who values jumping onto foes and stabbing the shit out of them, ala that one time Barricade got on Grimlock's back. You know what I mean?

Everything is better with chainsaws. Just ask Pharma

I really like that Gigan. He looks sleeker, mechanical, very intimidating, definitely a hardy upgrade from the previous incarnation.

'Course, having freaky dual-chainsaw hands doesn't hurt, ha.
