    Snagged a complete yellow one from a yard sale, but there were no instructions. Anybody know where I can find them online?

    What did you pay?

    I remember that toy was an exclusive to target over here. I paid $75, shortly after it was available in America for $15. Boy was I pissed. IMO the yellow version is the weaker of the various colour schemes, with the Constructicon version the best.

    That's a good price. I still remember picking that one up at Walmart on Black Friday. Still one of my favorite combiners.

    I have to say that while I agree that the yellow set is the weakest version I think it has the best head for Grimlock/Scavenger.

    Landfill is a great figure, congrats on the reasonably priced pick up. I really like how he has three different combined modes, and they all look pretty good in thier own right...

    I've had the original colored one for years. When I saw the Kre-O Devastator set I thought it'd be fun to get the green set as well. Then I saw the yellow one as well and got both for less than $120.

    Danke

    I got mine for $5 at this yard sale locally. All pieces were there, and no broken!!! If I'd had the extra $.50, I could have nabbed RID Armorhide as well. Hell, they had stuff all the way back to some giant BW/BM Optimus Primal that I didn't give any sort of shit about. Wonder if it'd be flippable...

    As far as the yellow repaint being weakest? Do what I plan on doing, and slap Decep symbols on it. G2 repaint of the Devastator version of the toy.


    See above post.

    Awesome! Yellow Landfill was my first TransFormer back in 2003! He's missing some parts now, but I still love him! :D

    Along with the Legends Devestator (that I now have lined up with a fellow board member for an excellent price,) this is the combiner set I crave the most. Four construction vehicles with cool colors that combine in three differet ways? Awesome.

    Can anyone tell me about the articulation?

    The arm articulation in all combined modes is great - legs far less so but in the Hightower/Heavy Load legs combination, he's incredibly sturdy.
