#Deskbot

Post by domsalvia » Mon Feb 05, 2018 8:23 am

You know, take a toy to work, or your home office, or your kitchen table, like the grown up you are, snap a picture, and share it with us.

Today's deskbot is fairly convinced you're about to fall down some stairs if you don't confess.

Dom, I need this. Do I need this? I've always loved Prowl (even if IDW made him something of an arsehole) because he's handsome and a police car. That's all I need.

How do you cope with somewhat fragile boys? 'Cos he sure has some fragile detail bits on him that I'm constantly conscious of until the day I forget and crush something.

That said, if you like a prowl that, as I said on the twitters, always has an air of police brutality about him then I can't recommend enough. The transformation around the legs is tricky first time and the instructions don't help, but once you go through it once with a bit of you tube help it makes sense and is easy. Articulation is good, he looks that part and is nicely dense. I really quite pleased with him.

Alt mode is weaker than bot mode for sure but still looks IDW Cybertron po-po. I like him, and I hate IDW Prowl.

Sometimes a beautiful toy is all you need. I can't really afford him right now but he's on my police radar. You can make him work with CHUG chaps too.

Very minimal, but always on my work desk.

What parts are fragile, more specifically? He'll be on my doorstep this week, so I wanna know what I'm getting into before I break something by accident. :x

Just the kinda obvious bits in the bull bars on the chest and the stick up pipe on each shoulder. There's plenty of space to apply any pressure you need to around those bits so easy to work around, just want to make sure not to press hard on the obviously weak bits of plastic.

Chanced on this little beauty at a discount today, robot mode isn't bad either.

(Thinking about it, I'd almost forgot T5 had dragonbots in it. Perhaps not a brilliant reflection on the movie.)

Dived in with the lovely boy that is Striker Manus today. He's very much making me even more hyped for Thunder Manus, whenever he decides to appear!
