    Yeah, the seller is a very respectable member here. He always comes up with some very interesting and rare things. Wish I could take out a second mortgage on some of them.

    Question: Who actually gives a shit about news credits?

    Super interesting to see those auctions, G1/G2 prototypes are always neat.

    I got a small number. I want more because it makes me feel like I'm contributing to the site and helping my friends.

    Scavenger looks like it evolved inside of a cave. That's pretty great.

    I always love seeing these. They are rare and part of TF history, so it's always great to have a look.

    Likewise. The auctions are great for those interested (and financed) enough to acquire them, but from my own rather-skint perspective, I'm more than happy to see pix like these, especially the box-art sketches. :thumb 

    (On that particular note, the 'reach out' designs for PM Prime should be labelled with 'WARNING - IMMINENT ROBO-GROPE!' :lol )

    What is the yeoow constructicon it is being compared to? It's not G1 and it doesn't look like G2. Maybe it's another prototype? I like the gray "arm" where the scoop is attached.

    It's been scientifically proven that news credits will increase the size of your penis, even if you don't have one in the first place.

    Anyways, Slag looks pretty awesome, but how can they tell the difference between a G1 and G2 Constructicon Test shot?
