Why not? Come on, it's been over 2 days since a new Optimus Prime figure came out, and magic happens every time he gets in front of Spliffdizzle's camera.

A lot of people think that with my head buried in code all the time that I lose touch with the toys, but I can assure you that I recognized this favorite character of mine right away. I couldn't find shots of Uber-Larry and Burly-Curly among Shrike's contributions, but I know it's only a matter of time before he gets to them.
Photo 5K!

Here we have Diesel, FansProject's final piece of their not-Menasor team. He is teamed up with Car Crash, T-Bone, Down Force and Last Chance. More pics will be incoming soon of this awesome figure!

And yes, I finally hit the big FIVE-ZERO-ZERO-ZERO. That's a lot of pics! I've learned a lot over the years here at Shmax, from multiple people current and past (looking at you HighPrime!). I hope to keep submitting photos until 10k and beyond. Thank you everyone for all of the kind words you've had for me thus far, and I hope to keep getting better and better at what I do here.

Courtesy of Spliffdizzle, take a peek at Prime Dark Energon Optimus Prime.  In addition to being all decked out in translucent red and orange, we get to see Prime without his ever-present mouthplate - just look at that handsome face.

A BBTS exclusive in the U.S.,  the Dark Energon line provided us with some rather unique recolors - check out Wheeljack and Bumblebee.  If you're on the fence about these guys, BBTS currently has all six on clearance right now.

Courtesy of Spliffdizzle, we've got Masterpiece Streak, a wonderful interpretation of the Generation 1 character, and the next in the line of the smaller Masterpiece figures.

Knowing how TakaraTomy loves their recolors, can a Diaclone-inspired "Blue" Streak be in our future?  Only time will tell...

Courtesy of Spliffdizzle, have a look at Kre-O Sharkticon - based on the G1 figure Gnaw, who, as a Sharkticon, was one of the Quintesson's pets/soldiers.

So, if this guy knocks on your door, no matter what he says, he's not a plumber, there is no telegram, and he is most certainly not "only a dolphin".

Once again, courtesy of Spliffdizzle, here we have everyone's favorite radioactive Creamsicle, Sunstorm.  Only avalable at BotCon 2013, Sunstorm was part of the Rainmakers Souvenir set and sold out very quickly.  If you were lucky enough to get one, be warned...this guy is not, I repeat, NOT filled with ice cream.  That was a costly little experiment - anyone happen to have an extra? ;)

Just in case you didn't think Spliffdizzle could make a Pulse Cannon out of Jello.

Here we have Smokescreen from the Beast Hunters subline, courtesy of spliffdizzle.

Looking sufficiently "Mad Maxian", Smokescreen is decked out in his Shadow Quill Armor (which is thankfully removable) and is ready to go dragon hunting with his Autobot buddies.

The times, they are a-changin'...back in the day, Generation 1 Mirage preferred to kick back and hunt turbofoxes for sport, but now, for the Prime Autobot cast, it's dragons and the Autobots are the hunted.
