    I have searched this site and 3 others to try and identify these missiles. I am positive that at least 5 of these(not sure of the off-white one) are tf missiles. Please help me i.d. these and reunite them with their appropriate transformer. Sorry the pic is a bit blurry, I can describe each of them if anyone needs me to.

    Thanks!

    have you tried www.tfu.info? Use their parts search feature.

    and we definitely need a better pic in order to help you here.

    The pic is way too blury, but I can say that the bottom one is for G1 Smokescreen/Prowl/Bluestreak's mold sholder blasters, I just don't know which one of the three as they all had black missiles in their re-issues.

    I dunno. The pic's too blurry to make out physical details, which can be pretty crucial, and the lighting's not very good either, so you can't even pick out accurate colours. The rough shape of the third one makes me want to suggest Depth Charge; and the ball-ended on second from the bottom - is that one of Unicron's?

    I can't even find the parts search on TFU.info, but Cobra Island Toys have one; it's a little out of date, but worth a try.

    Blurry Pictures

    Yeah, as I have realized, the picture just doesn't show the detail of the parts very well, or even their true color. I'm going to try individual pictures tomorrow. thanks for the i.d. on the prowl missile. I didn't get that one since the originals were chromed. But yeah, its the re-issued one.

    Hopefully after the single pics I'll have more luck, but thanks to everyone that checked and please check back tomorrow night for separate pics.

    G.A.P.

    Put in the missile and the color. You should get a pretty decent return. Top one looks kinda like the one from Energon Landmine, with those fins, though a better picture will help loads.

    What code works for pasting from photobucket??

    I have all 4 missiles individually photographed on Photobucket, but I can't seem to get any of the links to show the pic here. Which one do you use? Is it because it doesn't show up until AFTER I post?

    Appreciate any help!

    the last one looks like it could be from G2 but it could also be from a non-TF series cause ive never seen a TF with that type of missile

    macro setting is your friend.
    Chances are your camera has a macro setting (look for it in the camera's instructions; google the instructions if you can't find them). doing that would help us greatly in identifying the missiles for you

    That brown one with that gray middle looks like it's part of Rodimus' fishing pole weapon from the Kiss Players *shudder*. I've only read the tfwiki article on it though, so I'm not sure other than it looks like part of a fishing pole.

    1st one looks like it may be from a Marvel Shape Shifters figure.
    2nd one looks kinda like RID Prime's.
    4th one definitely comes from a Blok Bots set.

    Ok, One more try...

    I have not only re-taken the pictures, I even went thru Paint and highlighted what makes them unique, in one case, I pretty much drew it from scratch. so, without further adieu..
