    Okay. While Maz has an excellent gallery of Guard City ( http://www.tf-1.com/articles/jtf/guardcity_template.html ), I've never really seen good pictures of his evil counterpart from Operation Combination, the Bruticus redeco called Battle Gaia.

    However! I was recently browsing a Japanese TF photo-blog, and it turns out the guy did a photoshoot of Battle Gaia.

    You have Great Cannon (Onslaught), Sandstorm (Brawl), Shuttle Gunner (Blast Off), Target Hawk (Vortex), and Leyland/Leland (Swindle).

    Now... granted, it turns out he's actually nothing to write home about, especially in light of the umpteen versions of Bruticus and Ruination. But I do really like the green on Target Hawk.

    Ahh. Cool... I didn't know you'd done that! It looks like this guy applied his stickers, though, so it's nice to have that alternate look.

    Okay, so explain to me why this mold & the Energon Arcee are so special that they constantly get repaint after repaint while most figures never see one repaint :sly: . There are so many molds that are better than Bruticus & Arcee but for some odd reason they're favored.

    I personally would rather see new & cheaper repaint versions of Abominus, Computron & Defensor. A new recolor release of Predaking as a Wal-Mart or Target exclusive would kick major ass as well. But no, we get 2 Arcees in the same line at Target.

    Absolutly beautiful. One day I'll have Battle Gaia and Guard City. I used to have the kabaya Battle Gaia (sold it for $150)-- check Alvarez's Unoffical Guide to Transformers. The kabaya BG is mine, Sky Hyper, Landshaker, and a few others.
