X-Transbots Krank and Stax are not without their flaws, but overall are both fine transforming robots. I recommend buying both, if you’re at all interested. But where should you put them? On a Masterpiece shelf, or a Classics shelf? The answer isn’t as obvious as you might think, at least for some collectors. Where am […]
Stax is the second bot in the Master Minis series by X-Transbots, being released at the same time as Krank.
