Where the hell are my WFC toys?on July 9, 2012 at 9:48 pm
No, seriously, I have no idea where they are. They were in an odd spot in the old house before the move, since they didn’t really go with any existing display and there were just four of them, and so now I have no idea where in my basement of bins they would be. Hrn.
This came up today because I got the new Fall of Cybertron Optimus Prime today, and he’s a replacement for my old War for Cybertron Prime. I thought maybe I’d photograph them together or something. Nope!
If I never find that WFC Prime, it’s not a HUGE loss. I mean, first of all, obviously, he’s been replaced. He’s now nonessential. And gaddangit, I prefer his replacement. WFC Prime was a mess of parts and it always kinda annoyed me. It wasn’t nearly as aggravating as his contemporary WFC Bumblebee, but Jesus, man. The new HOC Prime is delightfully simple. I enjoy him.
FOC Prime is the size of a modern Deluxe Class toy. He’s Prime RID Bumblebee’s height. Taller than Cliffjumper, shorter than Wheeljack. (He’s also the same height and mass as Beast Wars Dinobot, if we want a more historical comparison.) But those of you yearning for the sizes of Deluxes of Armada through Cybertron, I think oil prices have kind of ruined that for the mo’.
I’m bringing this guy with me to San Diego Comic-Con. When I (god willing) get my Bruticus, he’ll need someone to stomp into the ground. At least then his relative smallness will be a feature.
