    Well, I finally finished it. Due to his recent role in TF:A, my nostalgia for this guy shot through the roof, so I had to have all of the versions of him I could find (couldn't find BWII Diver :cry )

    Anyways, here are the pics of these beautiful, beautiful 4. Sorry for crappy quality, I have a terrible-ass camera.

    He was my first action figure, not just transformer, ever. His detailing is just superb, and has a great unorthodox Bot mode.

    What solid red Spittor?

    The Japanese Beast Wars Volcano playset came with Armordillo and Snapper(turtle) in pretty much exactly the Hasbro colors.

    There was a largely red Japanese exclusive Bat Optimus Primal packed with a CD-Rom and Purple Alligator Megatron.

    He has the red UK exclusive "Transmetal" Spittor there.

    I have Slapper, and he's awesome. BW had some of the coolest basic figures. I really have to get Spittor, as well as some others one day.

    That and you really are going to need BWII Niagara falls playset. It's the ultimate cherry on the cake for you. The playset will accomodate all the frogs and the plastic mat can be used to fill up your shelves.

    The TM2 mold is pretty slick. I had all the TM2's (wow have line sizes expanded these days) and other than show characters, he and Iguanus are the only two that really charmed me.

    I had a hard time tracking one down. Was looking for one for almost 2 years before I got a Niagra set for about $90. That was back at Botcon 2001. They're pretty hard to come by, so I don't think a usual price really exists.

    But to tempt you some more....
