HFTD Backfire by Zigholtul88
HFTD Backfire
Paints Used:
- Argent Silver Acrylic
- Black Gloss Acrylic
- Metallic Copper (mix of orange gloss, gold metallic and silver metallic)
- Red Gloss Acrylic

What's this? I'm tackling the repaint first instead of the original. Well that's what boredom can do to someone like me. So who in the hell is Backfire? Well TFwiki.net mentions that Backfire views all traffic as a good advantage while tracking down a Decepticon named Oil Pan, all the while befriending a human named Spike Witwicky. Whom being that this is the movieverse and the writers like to make shit up as they go is probably some random hobo living in an abandoned factory that the Witwicky family tries to forget about. Honestly I think Backfire seems like the kind of Autobot that wouldn't hesitate to run somebody over during a chase sequence.

Speaking of the greatest Transformers resource on the web, here's what the figure originally looked liked: tfwiki.net/wiki/File:TF2010-to…
Yes I will get to Knockout, as soon as I'm done painting him up.

Thrilling 30 Skywarp by Zigholtul88
Thrilling 30 Skywarp
Paints Used:
- Argent Silver Acrylic
- Black Gloss Acrylic
- Gold Metallic Acrylic
- Gray (mix of black gloss and white gloss)
- Metallic Copper (mix of orange gloss, gold metallic and silver metallic)
- Pink (mix of red gloss and white gloss)

After so many years the Fall of Cybertron Seeker trio is finally complete and a complete rarity but the Hasbro version totally blows away Takara's dull color scheme. Though I think I got screwed on the exchange because this one came out of the package severely loose to where it was very easy to knock over. Luckily its nothing that can't be fixed. Nothing else I can say really say about this figure that hasn't been heard thousands of times by now other than I can see why a certain reviewer loves this character. So I'll just say this. Thanks Hasbro, Bangbros!

HFTD Tomahawk by Zigholtul88
HFTD Tomahawk
Paints Used:
- Argent Silver Acrylic
- Black Gloss Acrylic
- Gray (mix of black gloss and white gloss)
- Metallic Copper (mix of orange gloss, gold metallic and silver metallic)
- Red Gloss Acrylic

Honestly I don't have much to say about this figure, though if you want my opinion I'd say its mostly average compared to the excellent Terradive. Its a shame Tomahawk never came with any weapons other than like two missile pods. Talk about getting screwed over by Hasbro though luckily that was remedied with GDO Springer, a figure I will tackle one of these days because as far as I'm aware he owns that mold. Or maybe I'm just batshit insane, which would be obvious after doing something like this: zigholtul88.deviantart.com/art…

Ashlynn, Scholar of Elmhaven by Zigholtul88
Ashlynn, Scholar of Elmhaven
A tribute piece to a really cool individual I found on the Religion and Philosophy forum and if you wanna know my opinion on that area its a bit tamer compared to what's typical behavior in the Politics forum. Though you still got some really messed up individuals there. Amazing how this site doesn't put up with trollish antics but telling everyone else that you're a neo nazi or that you support Isis, that's perfectly okay.

Luckily for every nutjob out there, eventually you run into someone that makes you praise the sun that not all of humanity has succumbed to complete and utter mental insanity.

Interests
I seriously cannot begin to tell you how excited I am for the 2015 combiners. From what I gathered it looks like they fixed many of the problems that were present on Fall of Cybertron Bruticus such as making the torso a voyager class figure and the articulation looks way improved. Menasor does look a bit wonky which is probably due to mistransformation but Superion on the other hand looks like a near perfected update to the G1 toy.

Now while I'm definitely looking forward to whenever these get released I'm not too sure about yet another price increase. If these toys were as sturdy as those found back in 2010 then maybe I would be okay but as it is I'm not too sure.

Holy cheese and biscuits that Hound looks amazing and......$122.60!

WTF, that's too bloody expensive. I could probably get two Masterpiece figures for that amount of money.

I know. 2014 TFSS Tradshot is cool updated of original Action Master Treadshot. Generations Warpath mold truly works on him. Not to mention Catgut get's also updated.

Sorry for the late response mate, haven't been feeling too well. As for the links I'm actually more interested in the Generations stuff. Now concerning the AOE figures I have yet to see both Galvatron and Hound show up, all the stores around here are clogged up with those stupid flip changers and 1 step change crap that nobody seems to want.

DoctorVK Featured By Owner Aug 6, 2014
Same thing here. Near market only offers AOE 1 step change, AOE titan guards and AOE Construct-Bots. AOE Construct-Bots are okay, but I really would like see AOE Generations toys here.

I still keep my wish on Generations Thrilling 30 to show up here. It's not too late for them to come here.

Everything looks good so far except for one that's a redeco of ROTF Blazemaster. Seriously that mold freaking sucks. Transforming it is a major pain and the robot mode looks terrible.

Well, would have HFTD Tomahawk mold work for Protectobot Blades? BTW, what you think about Protectobot Hot Spot who use RTS Grappel mold?

It looks nice though I'm not sure if I really need a third FOC Grimlock. I already have both the original and the version that came bundled up with a very nice chromed out DOTM Optimus that was a Target exclusive.

You have AOE Silver Knight Optimus Prime (usinf DOTM Deluxe Class Optimus mold) and Grimlock (using Generations FOC Grimlock mold)?? When and how you get it?

Zigholtul88 Featured By Owner Jul 23, 2014
Sadly it was a Target exclusive but I got it for around $25 and chances are its probably already on clearance. Grimlock definitely feels more like a G1 update with the added paint and gold chrome chest. Optimus now, damn the chrome really makes this mold pop. I'm still finding it rather difficult that this came from Hasbro of all things. Normally if you want a Transformer with chrome you'd have to go with Takara, but this really surprised me. Even to my amazement there has yet to be any chipping which tend to happen a lot with chrome.

Yeah, definitely not without its flaws but it did fix a good of problems that plagued the last three films. No more toilet humor and the robots got way more screen time that they could actually be considered characters. Heck even the villain Lockdown was somewhat fleshed out beyond just being evil just for the heck of it, plus he was able to hold his own against Optimus. I cannot wait for the sequel considering that this film kinda hinted at the Quintessons existing in this universe. They would be perfect in the Bayformers universe seeing how they already look alien enough.
