    Which G1 toy, in your opinion, had the MOST screwed up Tech Spec?
    I will throw in Shockwave, because apparently he was always trying to overthrow Megatron...
    Should we count that they clearly messed up the original three seeker's?
    What are your choices?

    I assume you're on about because Shockwave was loyal to Megatron in the cartoon? Sounds more like the cartoon screwed his up his portrayal rather than the other way around. Tech specs version of Shockwave is better. Although it was that he often felt it was more logical to be the leader rather then any desire to overthrow anyone. In the Marvel comics he even once freely gave leadership back to Megatron when faced with it being the logical course of action.

    If we're talking actual mistakes then it'd be, if I remember correctly, the swapped Seeker stats and Sunstreaker and Sideswipe profiles.

    You are correct. Also, I agree with you 100% about the comic.

    I recall my Topspin and Twintwist techs had swapped the pictures of the bots.

    As an example of screwed up tech specs? In what way? Rich Transformer hunts Cybertronian wildlife? I don't get how that's a mistake.
    Although wasn't it Turbofoxes he was hunting?
    Also, is Mirage actually rich? His toy profile says he has high-priced friends, not that he himself is necessarily rich. I suppose it's suggesting he's monied too, but it can also be read that he just hangs around with rich people.

    You seem to be asking about how Sunbow didn't adhere to the original tech specs and character portrayals instead of actual goofs on the tech specs.

    I'd nominate the original Hot Rod Tech Specs as being a match for Optimus Prime. They were equal in everything but Courage (3 in Optimus' favor) and Firepower (1 in Hot Rods favor) in terms of decisionmaking.

    I'd stick with the Seekers as the biggest actual screw-up, given that they were all messed up.

    How about that one Monsterbot who has, what was it, the lowest Strength, in all of G1?
