Mech Ideas Gauntlet is completely the wrong colour!  Thought I should just rip that plaster off quickly.  OK!

That aside, Gauntlet is an adorably dumpy robot who turns into a tiny armoured car.  Seriously, the vehicle mode is basically a small cuboid.  His large amount of posability is hindered by his chubbiness, in a sense.  I like it!  He has like twenty points of articulation, which is surprising for his body type.  The conversion’s fairly interesting with minimal kibble, and his design is stunningly accurate to his IDW appearance.  And he’s sturdy, too!  I’ve never bought from Mech Ideas before but the joints and durability are high quality, and doesn’t carry the fragility that other adult-oriented toys seem to.  That said, the plastic does seem to have a bizarre, almost scratched texture to it.  It’s not the 100% smoothness you’d see from an official product.

Sadly, his main plastic colour has tilted from beige to greige to grey as in his Wings of Honor appearance.  As someone who owned the original Ironfist as a kid, I feel he definitely should be creamier.  Additionally, for whatever reason the barrel of his lightformer gun is cast in a mud-sprayed colour.  I realise that a limited run of WAR Gauntlets had hand-applied battle damage, but this seems to be actually cast into the plastic.  Interested in knowing if anyone else has one of these or if it’s just my specimen.

But yeah, in conclusion, this is basically the best possible representation of Ironfist as he appeared in the Last Stand of the Wreckers.  If you love Ironfist, you’ll love this dude.

Evil Twilight Sparkle by TheLastGherkin
I had this idea that was sort of a cross between Equestria Girls and Community Season 3: while pony Twilight Sparkle is visiting and having adventures with the girls, what happened to the human Twilight Sparkle who lives in the city and was mentioned by Pinkie Pie in the first Equestria Girls movie? And from there the germ of the idea turned into a Twilight Sparkle who snapped when she somehow found out that her lifetime without friends could have been rectified, but not while the interloper from the pony dimension was still there!
I have no idea why I haven’t been hired by Hasbro Studios yet.

Work it baby

Toy Biz’s 2000 X-Men movie line included a Mystique with a rubber Wolverine disguise, so you could re-enact that scene from the movie where Hugh Jackman is bloated and constipated and swaying his hips like a supermodel.

Sometimes, scrap happens, and who you gonna call?
