    So I had this guy once, then sold him and I now bought one again this timeI intend on respecting the mold.

    Also, does anyone else swap his legs in robot mode to make him have knees?

    I have done this sometimes. Usually it seems I end up selling a MOSC version of a figure and later buying it back loose in an ebay lot.

    Lets see....

    Predaking, Mindwipe, Rodimus Prime, Hot Rod, Sixshot (Well looking for one anyway)

    Usually, when times get tough (Money wise) I sell figures i'm not that fond of or easy to replace.

    Insecticon Kickback

    Sold him at a discount toy store because I needed the money and went back in 3 weeks later and lucked out and got to buy it back.

    Classics Jetfire, no idea why.

    90% complete Fort Max, got him cheap, made a huge profit, but replacing him will cost so much more now :banghead:

    I traded off U.S. Powermaster Prime (among other things) before I knew what I was trading away.

    Then the reissue with all the extra parts that I never knew existed came out, and I snagged it. It was a happy time. Upgrade!
