    Got my G2 Spray today and thought I'd add a few pics to the thread for everyone on the fence. Unless you have a love of G2 like I do, or don't have the original, I wouldn't bother. The chrome causes major problems with the joints, the blue clearcoat chips easily, and it makes the joints and the holes in the hands a super tight fit.

    I can't believe it, iGear has done it again and sold me a figure with the box!

    Although not easy to read because of the font, it seems the chrome Spray's box bio is a parody of the opening rap to the Fresh Prince of Bel Air!

    MW-01C SPRAY PROFILE (sing to the tune of Fresh Prince of Bel-Air)

    Now this is the story all about how
    Spray's life got flipped, turned upside down
    And I'd like to take a minute just listen to me
    I'll tell you how I became the repaint of a line called 2G

    In Pawtucket, Rhode Island born and raised
    In the toy shop is where I spent most of my days
    Chilling out, maxing, relaxing all cool
    Waiting to be purchased, played with at home or school
    When a couple of reps, they were up to no good
    Started thinking neon in my neighbourhood
    I saw a couple of paint samples and I got the heebie geebie
    They said "you've got to have a repaint, if we're putting you in 2G”

    I dreaded the nineties reboot and when it came near the
    packaging said "fresh" and “cool”, I couldn't look in the mirror
    We went through the colour options, complete from A-Z
    But I thought “I have an idea”, “yo, chrome in 2G!”

    Now back in the day, remember re-releases were rare,
    It only happened to the big toys, about minis who would care?
    But when I looked at my wave mates everyone would see,
    Me sat in my chrome as the prince of 2G.

    This need to be a contest at TFcon. The best person rapping Spray 2G song gets a prize.

    Agreed! Might have to be at a parts party though...

    Edit: Just realised you said TFcon, not Botcon.

    Finally caved on this guy. G2 seaspray is the only figure I have left from my original collection. Nostalgia took over and I caved. I think I need an intervention.

    Weird, there is a guy selling tons of supposedly Chrome Sprays on ebay for $15 each including shipping out of China. I got it and it's the Chrome toy's box, but inside is regular Spray, and there is no collector card. I wonder if these are factory extras or KOs or something.

    I got Tubes from the same seller, I think. Arrived fairly fast, not-Pipes is perfect with no QC issues, so all is good. He looks great in my IDW Lost Light display.
