5:10pm: Review: Titan Masters wave 2
Two decent retools, two new molds, all worth picking up. Skytread (aka Flywheels), Brawn, Apeface, Clobber (aka Grimlock).

5:25pm: Review: PRiD TRU Warriors wave 2
Starscream is a good mold with serious joint QC issues, Power Surge Optimus Prime is so-so, Paralon is a nifty mold with loose claws.
12:11am: Kitbash: Captain Adept Darius
Finally finished painting the action figure after many delays (for both other projects and "just too tired"). No phyiscal mods to the Markov figure from the Evolve computer game toy line, but I scratchbuilt the lightning rod.

4:12pm: Review: Titans Return Legends wave 1
Wait for the Ravage deco of Stripes, get Rewind, shake your head sadly at Wheelie. (Wheelie has a clever design, but requires MUCH higher levels of quality control to pull off than Hasbro can give. Or scale it up to Deluxe and use ratcheting universal joints instead of ball joints.)

11:32pm: Review: SDCC 2016 Tablet Soundwave
Recommended. Shows what Hasbro can do when they charge $40 MSRP for a Voyager-sized toy.
12:24am: Drawing: Buff mermaid
My first pencil-ink-color drawing since April, and the first one not in either Steven Universe or MLP style since last August.
Inspired by a comment on Tumblr asking for butch mermaids.Collapse )

Bought him a simple sword, build him a pistol.
Big pics behind cut.Collapse )

2nd July 2016

6:23pm: Warmachine: Wroughthammer Rockram as G1 Sandstorm
Starting to run out of Wreckers to use as inspiration (not gonna use the TFCC cross-time Wreckers). An upcoming unit will be painted as Signal Flare, since there's loads of him in Energon.
Various shots, plus comparison to the G1 toy, behind cut.Collapse )
