For those of you who are unaware, my Transformer collection languished in my garage for about 6 years. That's where my wife wanted it, so that's where it was displayed. Earlier this year, I finally convinced her to let me bring it into the house. Rippersnapper was the catalyst.
Have you ever wondered what effects extreme swings in temperature have on plastic? I used to, now I don't have to, again, thanks to Rippersnapper. One day during the winter, I decided to transform Rippersnapper from beast mode to robot. I lifted up the shark head and it snapped off. So that necessitated a new Rippersnapper. Joy.
|Nice land shark mode.|
Robot mode on Rippersnapper is pretty standard. Move some legs around, pull the legs out and flip the shark head back and you've got yourself a robot! A robot with a cyclone gun! A kibbly robot with a cyclone gun.
|So many limbs|
|Not a limb for Abominus|
I'm fairly certain that this only happens because of the similar color schemes, but man is it confusing. As a matter of fact, I've had to edit this entry several times to get rid of any instances where I called Rippersnapper Overkill. Hard work, I tell ya. Only two more posts and then Abominable August is over. See you for the next entry - Hun-Gurrr!
