    I keep bidding on Windbreakers on Ebay, and keep getting sniped for .50 in the last minute. GRRRRRRRRR!

    So, my question is, are these G2 cars worth it? They look really cool, but as someone who does not like the cyberjets, but generally love the G1/G2 molds.

    What do you think?

    Put 2 G1 Bumblebees bumper to bumper in car mode. That's roughly the size of each of those cars.

    IMO they are worth it, I love all 4 and the jet counterparts; some of my favorite G2s. They are not super-posable like the Cyberjets, but they are fairly nice in their own way.

    That's actually good; I prefer the brickish/nostalgic aspect of the robot forms. Chest=car hood? Great!

    The colors are kind of that Saved-by-the-bell-early-90s-neon-rules-purple+orange=good(?) colors, but that is fine. I may try to pick them up.

    I've always wanted to do something similar to a really rare sealed G1. Except I wanted to destroy the box, then upon stickering the toy, break it, try to fix it but glue it so it doesn't transform, then blow it up with fircrackers, shoot it with a shotgun, and then burn the remains. With pics and video of the whole thing.

    Sadly, I'll never have the disposable income to pull something like that off.

    I have a sealed Windbreaker I found in a comic shop last year for 10 bucks, it was in some random corner covered in dust, with tons of changes to the price on the sticker. They kept marking it down and down but obviously no one till me wanted it. Very cool piece in my collection IMO

    I definitely wish I had the rest of em
