    Until then, we're just going to have to keep on clicking on photos of beat-up Ultra Magnus cabs, roofless Prowl/Bluestreak/Smokescreen molds, and accessory-less Seeker bodies.

    Such is the nature of collecting.

    no.

    I believe the G2 stunticons and protectobots are all accounted for, and none are opened

    Wrong. A bunch of G2 Stunticons turned up in an auction lot a year or so back. They went for crazy money.

    No, I was simply referring to the act of trying to find treasure in another' man's trash on Ebay.

    Besides, there must be more loose samples out there- it seems plausible that some samples ended up in the hands of children, and those children are now college students looking for funds.

    I know a lot of people are laughing at this but trust me it is very plausible. I personally found a Optimal Optimus Prototype all black and orange at a yard sale. ANYTHING IS POSSIBLE

    So don't hate the player.....

    It's true, these things could turn up anywhere, you never know.

    That said, here's a thought: How many do you think have been tossed in the trash over time because the person that had them at one point or another saw they weren't the g1 colors and thought they were KO's or something else?

    Ebay:
    Draven's right, some dude set up a lot auction at a low price a while ago. Once someone noticed the G2 stunticons in it, it went all round the fandom and ended up going for stupid money.

    The seller didn't know what he had.

    Thread is here, but the auction isn't actually viewable as it's over 90 days old.

    It should be noted that the blast shields and the gun came from a production bot. It did not come with accessories. Also the molding was changed for the battery compartment. Other than the color it is exactly the same as the production piece.
