Titans Return Brawn
Power of the Primes Slash:
You know, I've just realised who her face reminds me of..
As for today's favourite
Mirage keeping me company on a trip
G1 Sixshot today.
MP Primal for today:
Realizing TR Overlord is literally blue steel, worth another FOTD.
Greater than my wildest dreams. Everything I could have wanted and more. My first ever Transformer is redone and it's probably my favourite Deluxe class TF EVAH!
I know the Jumpstarters are regarded as some of the lamest G1 toys of the first two years of the line, if not all of G1, but I still absolutely love my little G1 Topspin with all my heart. He was the first G1 toy I bought when I started collecting again. I even bought reprolabels for him and Twintwist (which I've actually got round to applying). Maybe it lacked the intricacy and classic cool of Prowl or Jazz, but I really do think he's an awesome looking little robot. Plus he's got one of the coolest G1 guns ever.
"This is the end of the road, Galvatron!"
I've been wanting to take that picture for a long time.
I guess I've made my peace with Rodimus Prime. I used to hate him for taking Optimus's place in the '86 movie.
PotP Rodimus Prime for today.
I like the big lunk too.
Been messing with UW Devastator and decided these are my favorites of the team.
I'll be honest, I have no idea where this idea that the Jumpstarters were any more or less lame than many hundreds of other G1 Bricks comes from, but I don't buy into it. They certainly didn't flatter to deceive on their boxes like plenty of other more "celebrated" TFs did (Starscream and Co!)
They had one gimmick.....and again plenty of the rest of G1 had that going on too. I liked the designs and the idea that they were a co-ordinated team. And yes, the guns were great.
They were honestly two of my favorite, most played with figures back then.
If only you were Leader Class
I've always wanted to do a poll. "JUMPSTARTERS:Shite or alright?"
Alright! I had a much loved Twin Twist as a kid.
