So going through the toys sent to me in order, I have arrived at :iconblonegirl5678: who sent me an Amy Rose to make into a custom.  Unfortunately she has failed to reply to my notes and e-mails, so I'm going to plan C, if any of my watchers know her please let her know to get back in touch with me so I can make her toy.
So Dave Willis (author of webcomics like Shortpacked and Dumbing of Age) got his hands on a Victorion set and already released a text review of the leader Pyra Magna: www.shortpacked.com/blog.php I don't know if anyone else knew this but it is the first time I've seen the actual production colors of the mold and not those test shots from toyfair.  I think she looks REALLY good!  I do think Hotspot is one of the best combiner torso molds (Superion is my favorite combined torso, but Hotspot pulls off the individual robot mode and vehicle better) so it's no surprise how cool she is, but I am really happy that they toned down the eye-bleedingly bright color scheme.  I sort of agree with Walky that the Teal parts were fine and didn't need to be substituted for that more faded sea green though, it was the Jolly Rancher red that was most offensive to my optics.  He got the thing from some e-bay seller so I have no idea how legitimate the purchase was, but now I really can't wait to have this thing in hand.
April was a little bit of a slow month for customs, as I only made 4; Bean, Antoine, Razor, and T-Bone...that is Razor the Wyvern, not Razor the Swat Kat which I made over a month before.  Hopefully I'll be able to increase the output this month.

PS: I know Nautica is at the bottom of the poll but screw you guys I spent over $80 on that upgrade kit and I'm doing her first!

well, never use cheap poster paints to paint action figures, that stuff is meant for paper or wood, not plastic.  and polymer clay is nice to make some things, but it isn't as durable as an action figure's plastic so it doesn't hold up for a long time.

Do you think 3D printers one day will replace the mold making process in the toy industry?

hmm, that's a good question, there are pros and cons of both techniques for mass production, I think I'm gonna write a journal about it.

Yo, Wake! Found this image from the TF Deviations comic called "MegaScream". Figured I'd show it to you.
