I really like this Megatron. Yeah, yeah its Blitzwing's body but I don't care, and actually like it more as Megatron then Blitzwing.
It just works for me, though I enjoy his tank-mode far more then his jet-mode. Probably because it fits so snugly together.
Here's the thing G1Megatron I like, but I'm not too big a fan of Megatron, as a gun... Just because I think the 'role playing' aspect of the toy makes no sense within the fiction.
All Transformers should have a mobile mode. ALL!
This one combines aspects of the G2 toy, or it can depending upon how you want to display him. As you can see I use the Titan Master chairgun, for a shoulder gun and his black fusion cannon, is displayed on his right-arm as is typical of Megatron.
One of the other reasons I like this toy so much. Transforming him into any mode, is easy and fun.
Titans ReturnMegatron, and Hot Rod, helped rehabilitate me on the idea of all these Transformers now being Headmasters, where Galvatron, sour…
Due to a snafu, regarding Paypal which I am not able to pin down at this time, and actually, don't desire to devote energy to. I am no longer publishing through Smashwords... Or any outlet which demands I use Paypal to get payments.
My distribution agent has changed to Draft2Digital.
Let me back up a bit.
Earlier in the day, I'd already uploaded my books onto Draft2Digital, not related to the Paypal snafu - Which I'd only just learned about a few moments ago. I did this because, for whatever reason (I think it has to do with how they handle metadata... ) I got better sales results with Draft2Digital on varied outlets.
However, I'd intended to keep Smashwords as a storefront, but because of this Paypal issue I can no longer do so. Draft2Digital, no hassle, like Amazon dumps my payments into my Checking Account and I don't need to move money around.
Having said all this uploading on Draft2Digital, is also a joy. What takes me forever on Smashwords, can be done in s…
Eighteen year-old, Gemma Jane, anxiously gnawed on a balled fist, and fussed “I should have kept my bloody, damned mouth shut!” She fumed. Pouty, bubblegum pink lips trembled as she stood alone in the corner, waiting. Goddamn, the waiting. Ah, maybe she should stop cursing? After all, that's how Gemma Jane got herself into this mess to begin with.
Profanity, and being very argumentative.
Yup. That was gorgeous, headstrong Gemma Jane. She never took no for an answer. Particularly, these days, when 'No' more often than not had been issued from her parents. Mum, normally came head to head with her obstinate daughter over clothes, boys and lately, almost anything else. Even small, insignificant stuff.
Today had just been typical.
Right. You want to know what landed Gemma Jane, put in the lounge's corner, stripped-off, down to only scanty lace maroon knickers, bra and hold-up stockings?
I hold a certain affinity for Hot Rod. Just always have. Though like every kid from the 80s I was a bit annoyed about Optimus Prime's death, I don't think I took it out on his successor.
This updated toy, rules! I think its one of my new favorite figures. His alt-mode is sleek and holds together and contains many echos of the G1 toy.
Hot Rod's alt-mode!
And standing on the shelf with Star Convoy (That's what I call 'Battle Core Optimus Prime') In my fan canon, this is after the Great War, and new Cybertronian Golden Age, with a returned powered-up Optimus Prime and Hot Rod as his second-in-command.
How does one go from being the Chosen Prime, and defeating Unicron, effectively ending the Great War to return to the role of simple Autobot Cavalier?
I would actually love for Hot Rod to show up on Robots in Disguise (RiD 2015) using a mold like his Titans Return body. It would be interesting to see if in the Aligned Continuity if Hot Rod and Bumblebee know each o…
