Interests
I swear that trying to draw, pretty much anything can be difficult at times and with me it involves a whole lot of erasing and tons of paper getting trashed in the process. Oh yeah, like its a shock that I still rely on paper considering everyone else seems to be going digital nowadays. Sometimes you find a picture and you immediately want to try and recreate it in pencil form and fail miserably at it. After trying at about 10 times now I basically said fuck it I'll try again some other time.

What was the point of this journal entry you ask? Well it basically shows that I'm still alive and still mentally sound. The other reasons are a combined effort that involved me actually using this journal entry more often and that I just wanted to bitch about how much of a mediocre artist I am because I can't create a drawing out of a picture of some cute blonde girl that I may or may not have a slight crush on. I don't know I just think she has pretty eyes. What more do you want me to say on the matter?
  • Mood: Pissed Off
  • Listening to: Tarot, a very kickass band
  • Reading: Yeah I need to start doing that more
  • Watching: HCBailey videos while painting
  • Playing: with a Generations Rhinox figure and loving it
  • Eating: not enough food, apparently
  • Drinking: Enough coffee to probably kill

Well I decided to join but if you're not a fan of tastefully done traditional nude art then I may not be the right person.

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.

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?

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.

Speaking of Quintessons, I was expecting Lockdown to say it in the film. One thing what hasn't changed in Bayformers movies is: uptight boneheads doing wrongs things. Like hunting Autobots along bounty hunter or trying to make knock off versions of Optimus and Bumblebee. One thing I was surprised was: Megatron's returning as reborn with new look and name, Galvatron. If I would have been it the film, I would have said to that bald four-eyes bonehead:"I blame you, bonehead". Then again, that bald four-eyes bonehead did had change of hearts in the end, so he's okay for now. But, that CIA bonehead was truly bonehead in the film. I was surprised, that it was Optimus who killed him.

Hey, thank you for your comments on that stamp regarding homosexuality (I was blocked by that person, so I'm replying here).

Hey no problem mate. Its a shame that we're now in 2014 and yet people are still bitching about gays getting married. Then again some folks in this day and age still frown upon interracial marriage and some of them even go far enough to quote questionable science facts to back up their claims. Sometimes I'm ashamed to consider myself part of the human race for there are way too many dumbasses running around.

Hey, do you have AOE Generations Crosshairs?
Reply
:iconzigholtul88:
Zigholtul88 Featured By Owner May 21, 2014
Yes I do and to my surprise I really enjoy him. Now granted he's like the second weakest figure out of wave 1 simply because you cannot beat new Dinobots but still he is pretty damn cool. The design is really nice and original given the trench coat look and heck any figure that comes with multiple weapons I'm gonna like immensely. Transformation can be a bit tricky when it comes to lining everything up properly but once done you end up with a nice vehicle mode that surprisingly is a decent size compared to what we've been getting lately. We've been getting used to car toys like RID Knockout and FOC Jazz that here comes one that's around the same size as what came out of the DOTM line.

I only have Crosshairs, Scorn, and Slug for the time being and everything else I buy from here on out will be staying in their package until I can exchange them for a cheaper price, or until the 90 day warranty runs out.

So, if I would see AOE Generations Crosshairs toy here, should I get it?

Also, what are the odds, if Hasbro or Takara may repaint AOE Crosshairs in G1 Crosshairs colors?
