Well I've recently now starting to feel the effects now of not being able to buy Full Complete G1 Figures I want since we don't have that much money to allocate to figures. However I've found a way around this....though right now I'm wondering if it just is better to: Buy a FULL COMPLETE vintage figure [Which always costs a ton depending on the figure] Or Buy Parts and assemble it my self [Which sometimes for the overall price to restore a figure to a full complete status may end up equaling the same as buying a full complete one] I'm wondering if anyone else does this? I've found recently that Parts are dirt cheap sometimes and had a notion to work to rebuild and restore a few junkers I find on ebay dirt cheap. Right now I'm working on Restoring a Metroplex and a Dirge...with luck I may get a Thundercracker and Thrust body for less than $3 and I'll have to search for the Wings for Thrust and Thundercracker. I like Restoration projects when it comes to Transformers, taking a cheap cast off toy that someone didn't want anymore and turning it into a nice collection piece.
