Is there a penultimate version of a <TF name here>? Howdy, y'all. I'm starting this thread because it seems that I can never find the perfect version of any one Transformer, and I always find myself wanting to customize or buy a different variant for parts mating/swapping. For example, I just got a re-issue Rodimus Prime (C-77) in the mail today (Thurs.), and planned on either using its parts on my original or keeping it as is when I realized not only were the rubber wheels slightly different from the 1st variant's rubber wheels (not news to me), but the color is slightly darker, richer than the 1986 & '87 (plastic-wheeled) Rodimi. Instead of sinking more money into one plan (inside arms and legs from this one w/ outer arms and trailer halves from a '80s Rodimus, plus spoiler - and maybe yellow undercarriage - from a plastic-wheeled version), I thought I should ask other collectors. Are there any TFs you thought were perfect, minus one (as manufactured) detail? In addition to Rodimus, I find myself riding the pine on: D-62-S Galvatron (who should have been a darker purple -- like Energon Galvatron -- or violet-blue; the gold chrome on his Matrix makes it too thick to fit properly inside Optimus Prime/Ultra Magnus) Universe 2.0/Henkei Starscream (both versions are very show accurate, but I find myself liking one feature on one that's different from what I like about the other) TRU/#24 Special Ed. reissue Thundercracker (perfect by himself, but too different in shade to parts swap w/ my mail-order Thundercracker, in spite of the same molds being used) TRU/TF Collection #5 reissue Smokescreen (font difference on door and hood number decals. On the upside, the plastic fenders/shoulders and windshields are painted the same color dark red as the die-cast paint, unlike the original. Plus, I really miss being able to unscrew his shoulders at my discretion.) Universe 2.0/Henkei Sunstreaker (did they have to make his symbol on his roof sooo big?) Unreleased 2010 Unicron (I'm honestly thinking of spending beaucoup bucks on this thing, plus planning to sauter -- for the 1st time in over 5 yrs. -- a green LED into its head to give it movie-accurate eyes) TRU Silverstreak/e-Hobby Anime Streak (minus the toys' red eyes, Anime Streak is show accurate, but the solid silver color used for regular Bluestreak looks better. Worse, upon buying Silverstreak, I commissioned Delta -- Reprolabels -- to produce a label set for me with the blue areas changed to silver. As a result my personal Bluestreak is wearing decals from both the in-box sheet and the Reprolabels sheet, which included upon my request, headlights, silver/chromed "TURBO" badges, and amber colored park lights.) This doesn't include money spent on reproduction label sheets, or custom reproduction label sheets, or custom accessories. -- Cybertronian.
