Transformers Candy

I am a huge fan of translucent colored plastic on toys. I know they are usually more brittle, but man do they look sweet!

I recently got the Fansproject Protector armor (Crystal version) for my Sons of Cybertron clear Rodimus. Finally opened it up tonight and put her together and it looks great! I actually first mounted the armor on my transclucent blue Rodimus, but it was so ugly that I almost regretted getting the armor. But then I cracked open my Sons of Cybertron set and used the clear red Rody instead and they were a match made in heaven! The translucent red and orange actually reminded me of gummy bears so I was literally salivating while messing around with this set LOL

I grabbed several other clear Transformers that I have and put them all in a display together.
Unfortunately, with beauty came a price, as I was repositioning the Protector's arm, I heard a loud pop...and found out the ball joint on the Sons of Cybertron Rodimus is slightly cracked already! So I just left his arm down so as to minimize the stress on that point =(

Another somewhat sad and hilarious incident occurred, as I was looking at the translucent Transformers that I had, I picked up my KO clear black Nemesis Prime and his leg just fell off! LOL that's what you get for buying KO! I ended up just hot-gluing his leg in place so he can just stand now, but his joints were all very floppy anyways so he couldn't do much but stand up straight before anyways.

    1. Ya I love them, but they must be handled with extreme care like LEon said. I should have taken him out of the display before posing him.

  3. After dealing with much translucent plastic, I conclude that all translucent plastic are very fragile so it is wise to handle them with EXTRA care.

    1. Yup totally agreed! Although the semi-translucent but slightly opaque plastic makes a huge difference, I actually remember learning this in school LOL
