Interlude: Like a Fish by Kenthayle Interlude: Like a Fish by Kenthayle
We don't stand for this "MOSC" crap in this house :XD:

Mirage arrived safely Thursday night. I took the first opportunity I could to shoot this because I wanted that box open. Why did I ever script a comic where he needed to be in the package? I apparently like to torture myself. I will say though, that while a scalpel is not the easiest nor the most efficient way of opening a toy package, it is certainly the most fun :D

I've got some paying work I need to finish up this weekend and some lizard tanks to clean, but I'm going to try and finish the last parts of "Give him a hand" before I do any Mirage centered comics (because if I don't they'll never get done XD). But I'll be taking lots of pictures of him anyway to practice ;)


Photocomic format adapted from *The-Starhorse
Transformers belong to HasTak
These guys are mine.

I wish my 'Cons hadn't known they were supposed to be bad. This faction thing is a pain! Always they compete for who can bake the best desserts. Always they throw exclusive parties. Always they argue over which movie to watch. Always they torment TFP Tiny Megatron. It's crazy 0o

Hehe yeah. There's an introductory period before I know their quirks. They're never quiiiiite like their actual selves. Something about the packaging stasis must do it to them. *nodnod*

I think this is my favorite of all your photo comics...it's so adorable!

I'm so glad there is a collector out there who buys the toys and frees them! I have a few hard to find toys, and I knew that they would be hard to find - but I got them out of their box asap.

I like rescuing the poor broken toys on ebay and fixing them, I'm currently waiting on an Ironhide that's in good condition besides his broken arm. Superglue should fix him right up :D

Kenthayle Featured By Owner Feb 21, 2012
I do that too! I rescue them from flea markets and such though... I don't tend to buy broken things off eBay, because they tend to be expensive regardless of breakage. But now and then I get lucky at a flea market/thrift store and come away with a treasure like TFA Blurr and Classics Octane :D

I have a few spares still in their boxes (and a Blazing Lockdown who, don't laugh, I'm actually a little afraid to open... He looks scary!). Sometimes I wait to open new toys to keep myself from rushing off to buy more right away, but eventually they will all be free ;)

Phantom-Angel-2007 Featured By Owner Feb 21, 2012
Lockdown is scary indeed! I don't blame you for not opening him. Plus, animated Prowl would probably not be very happy.

The Ironhide I'm getting off of ebay fully transforms, his arm is just snapped off and the person doesn't know how to fix it. Usually though, this guy goes for $40. I got him for $10 :D So I'm pretty happy about that.

I haven't had the chance to scrounge flea markets, but the college I go to has SO many antique stores that surround the area, I bet I can find one somewhere!

My first Transformer out of the box was ROTF Optimus...who is quite testy. He's got a major jealous streak...ever since then, I've been grabbing them when I have the chance and when I find them cheap :)

The only MOSC (Or rather MISB) toy I have is a 12" ReBoot Megabyte that I got at a local toy place for $8.

I have a few in the package still, but I won't keep them that way. They'll come out eventually, when I've figured out how they'll fit in. So far, I haven't been able to afford any toys I'd keep in the box for safety.

You know ... I don't think I'd know whether I wanted to keep them packaged until I already had them. I've had my eye on a couple that were pver a hundred and even them I'd take out of the package.

Well, there's the Delicate Warrior Arcee third party figure ... she's like 110$ but she's so lovely, there's no way I'd keep her in a package if I ever got her (though she is a knockoff, so maybe she doesn't count). Even MP Grimlock I'd take out to play with. The only toy I have kept in the package is my Red Alert backup, in case something happens to my current Red. But I'm not sure that counts either.

Definitely do MP Grimlock! I have him and immediately took him out when I got home!

You got a Classics Mirage!!! :love: Isn't he divine? He's one of my favorite toys. :) So fun to play with.

I do have some MIB Transformers, mostly because I got them as backups. I might eventually sell them just so they get played with. It bothers me knowing they're in the basement. But at least they're with each other, and I figure as long as they're in the packaging, they're in stasis.

Kenthayle Featured By Owner Apr 17, 2011
Oh, he is! He's so posable, it's so much fun to get him to emote. The first night he was out, I had him balancing on my knee while I was drawing.

Backups are probably good to have. I've been considering getting a back-up Red Alert, just in case my poor Red breaks for good. Can't tell him that, though ;) But yeah, I think of them as not being "awake" until they come out of the box. I actually have RTS Jazz and Wreck-gar asleep in the closet right now ... they'll get to come out after the move. :D

Red was really excited about 'Raj coming. He was fretting even worse than I was. Of course, now that he's actually here, I'm sure it won't be long until Red starts getting jealous of all the attention I've been giving him.

Congrats! Prowl is a sweet-looking toy. Having him and Optimus around might make it easier to control the babies :XD:

I would been in the same mood as you if i had a transformer too, especially after so much waiting and if was a Mirage. Congratulations for that!

I like all the panels in this comic. Thrust seems so inocent with that scalpel within his hands, althought he doesn´t realize at all that he is being slowly surrounded by autobots q:

He needs more seekers, Thayle! :XD:

Thanks! I'm so thrilled with Mirage ... he's already been subject to a few photoshoots. He is one gorgeous toy.

Don't worry, Thundercracker is in the mail! I think he is the best choice anyway ... the wrong Seeker might turn Thrust "bad" again and he's actually been very well-behaved lately. But I don't think Thundercracker will care much for that anyway. I'm looking forward to when he gets here :D

Don't give an exact-o knife to Thrust! That is not a good idea! He just might thrust that tip into your open palm.

If he did, he'd better find a damn good place to hide. And if I don't find him, 'Raj will XD

Nah ... my Thrust is actually just a huge suck-up. He likes the attention and being important way too much. He already gets to hold my brushes for me while I paint, so it's kind of his "job" now. I guess with no other Decepticons around, he forgets he's supposed to be bad. Bad robots don't get cookies in my house ;)
