Lots of Love for Sakura!
I remember being really inspired by CCS (esp by CLAMP’s designs) when I was younger even though I never finished the series, years later I finally sat down and watched it all (was able to notice somethings I wouldn’t have understood as a 5th grader…)
Aside from the obvious D’AWWWWWW here, I ‘d like to note how much I’d love to see a 1950s-style painted storybook of CCS.
rodimus: hands down my favorite kreon so far. i love how well they got all the details, not to mention that mini-spoiler is perfect!
cyclonus: easily making second place as a favorite of mine. if you look at his tf2010 figure and compare the two you can see so many things that match up as far as the details go, even the little kneecaps.
fangwolf: excellent colors and one of the most obscure references i’ve seen yet. i could have sworn this was supposed to be weirdwolf since highbrow is also in this wave, but it’s actually snarl from cybertron.
brawn: love love love that detailing on his chest, flawless. it looks so dynamic compared to the others with it’s metallic sheen. my only complaint is his face. the visor is obviously there from his g1 toy, but i would have preferred his cartoon incarnation’s eyes.
yeah, instead of doing my usual name, series, and notes review i figured that since they were tiny toys they’d get tiny blurbs. i don’t know why i haven’t been obsessed with these before, but that’s certainly changing little by little. do you collect these? if so, who’s your favorite?
Loved Iceberg from that wave.
I love Micro-Changers so much. Even the iffy ones.
I just wish the damned things would show up in Houston with any regularity. We haven’t received any new ones since wave 3 last year. (At least, not in several Targets and Toys’R’Uses.)
