    I rediscovered the G1 Sharkticon a little over a year ago. I'd had one as a kid and within 15 minutes of taking him out of the package the tab that attached his tail snapped off. This may explain why so many Sharkticons are without their tails.

    I reacquired a tail-less Gnaw last year during the fervor that lead up to the Transformers movie. I was not a big fan of the wimpy little tail he was provided. So I decided I'd had enough of Gnaw staring at me with puppy-con eyes begging to be completed and scraped a little creativity from my TF obsessed brain and came up with this.

    love this character, but the bot mode is so weak in my opinion. the head is way too big and the articulation is so limited. That being said, I'd love to scratch build one of these one day.

    I'm dying to pick up the quint prosecuters one day too.

    nice job. I got one of these as a kid, and thankfully never broke it. I have to admit that's probably because I loathed it and it just sat in the toybox :lol

    Awesome addition. I stumbled upon this on ebay a couple of weeks ago. A tad too expensive though...

    Out of curiosity what do you think would be a better price point for one of these?
