    I don't really know in which thread I should post pictures of my Classics Mirage so I thought of post him here. Please note that I'm living in Singapore, a small island located in Asia and not residing the USA! LOL! And yeah, shame on me for not posting the pictures earlier as I was fiddling with my Mugene robos etc.

    Sorry for the crappy pictures as my photo-taking skills are very basic at the least:

    I missed out on Classics Grimlock because the local community (Singapore) can be real asses at times - most of them are scalpers and are pretty selfish (not revealing the location of sightings until it is to late etc) unlike the fans here - I like the way how US collectors here help each other out!

    At first glance Mirage looks really super skinny but his design sort of grew on me...he looks like a super lean, mean machine. Kudos to Hasbro for the following tributes:

    i) head sculpt looks like the G1 version;
    ii) "Sparkpug" name on the spoiler (?don't know the part that car) of Mirage's alternate mode.

    I soooooo wish that the alt. mode had more of a realistic design, especially in the front spoiler area, kinda like rm mirage. but the bot mode is LOVE!

    No problem! I only required a digital camera recently if not I would have shared more pictures such as reissues and BTs when they were first released. I hoe you guys have an easier time finding Classics!

    ckhtiger - yeah, actually the bot mode is decent...its just the weapon...arghhh, its like a pea-shooter. If Hasbro wanted to make the weapon smaller, they should give it a sleeker design.

    Oh yeah, Mirage's other gimmick is that he can store his gun behind his back.

    hi is it possible to have mirages wheels on the front of the chest in robot mode so he doesn't look so skinny?

    thanks

    Could you get a flat shot of the side? The spoiler looks kinda weird from the angle of that first pic.

    peeman - what do ya mean? You mean the wheels at the back? If so, the design only allows the wheels to be in that position.

    Orodruin - the spoiler is adjustable...I will post pictures tomorrow as it 0040hrs and I got to go to church tomorrow. I didn't adjust the spoiler as I was in a rush to transform Mirage to robot mode. :D

    Chaos Incanrnate - I'm not really sure what you want so I assume you want to see the knee joints bend so here ya go:

    peeman - this picture will show you what I mean when I say the wheels are not designed to go to the front.

    *Forgot to add - this shot also shows how Mirage's gun is stored behind him.

    [​IMG]

    Orodruin - pictures of the spoilers from all the way "down", "level" and all the way "up"! :D

    Oh yeah, I want to add that I found Mirage's transformation the easiest among the Classics so far - excluding Grimlock and Jetfire as I don't have them.

    Me to, these shots have sold me on the figure. It'll be $10 well spent.

    Gotta hate that gun though, really really really hate. They should have just given him a generic gun, that looks like a gun.

    Actually, I'm not was too interested in the figure either and I only got him just for completion's sakes - I love the original cast of MTMTE.

    Is it possible to leave the gun/front spoiler on in robot mode?

    Any comparison pics with other deluxes out there? The head/body ratio on Mirage sort of throws off my sense of size for him.

    I was all set to not buy that guy as it looked like Calista Flockhart got into the design team. However those pics have changed my mind and I am gonna be a completionist for this line afterall.
