    What's the oddest Transformer item You've seen or own?

    Just to show a few of our personal TF's oddities..My favorite being a Skywarp soap dish, there's a Galvatron one out there too, but I've never seen it.

    Note: the blanket you see these items laying on is an oddity itself, that had been sold by Fingerhut in 1987, it has mostly the box art from 86 on it.

    Weirdest things I have are an original 1984 duvet and pillowcase set (Optimus, toy model, VS Laserbeak), plus curtains, lampshades, and some nice pictures. No clue what the story on the pictures is, they are framed and nice watercolour style images, one of Wreck Gar and one of Springer.

    I do recall there was a combiner a few years ago called 'MegaWing Galvatron - it was a combination of Armada Galvatron and RID Dreadwind & Smokejumper. I have it in front of me now and it's interesting - Smokejumper kind of holds on to the back of Galvy's head and a screwhole on the bottom of Dreadwind's vehicle mode gets forced into a Powerlinx port on Galvatron's back while his turret is rotated to the wrong side of his body.

    In short:

    I got a story.....

    When I was a kid, a lady at the church lost the use of her voice. I can't remember why, but that's really not important. What is of importance (or at least relevance to this) is that instead of using one of those electric voice boxes, she used an Ultra Magnus Voice Changer toy that had a tube in the back. She'd whisper into the tube and an electronic voice would issue forth from Ultra Magnus. So that would have to be the oddest TF merchandise I had ever seen, used in the oddest way allowed in public.

    Is that the more rare Ratchet, the one with the cross? I have a mint in Box Ratchet, not the reissue either, the original.

    I'd buy the toys, but I was never much into playing with them, but he's a cool figure for sure.
