    Hey guys,

    It's hardly current, but it's an article I've wanted to write for a very long time, re-inspired by the excellent BotCon clear Classics Mirage and a recent online poll as to who I'd like to see in the TF sequel ;)

    All the best

    How is the availability of these. Is Hasbro still making these and will there be a Rodimus (non exclusive) repaint?

    the Alternators line is done, so exclusives will be the ONLY thing we get from now on. Plus, why would they release a non-exclusive version of something they already released as an exclusive?

    G2 Mirage? That green and pink figure was going to be a G2 Mirage?! That's the first time I ever heard this. Are there any other pictures of it on the internet? I'd love see it!

    There was also a yellow and blue sideswipe repaint to come out. They were nothing more than a painted g1 mirage and a g2 sideswipe. So if you were going to sell them, there is no way to be able to tell if they were custom or not. None of the parts were molded in different color plastic. However, the one Maz has is in fact from hasbro.

    Many thanks for the praise guys! I have to say I'm very surprised he didn't do a lot better in that USA today TF sequel poll. I always got the impression a lot of fans' favourite characters were decided or at least heavily influenced by MTMTE. Mirage should have racked up tons of fans there...

    Ah well, he's still #1 here ;) 

    All the best

    Nice article. I think Alt Mirage is one of the best of the line.

    Yea, especially considering he saved the day at the end of MTMTE!

    You wouldn't consider getting one off eBay or in the sale/trade section of 2005?

    It's really honestly worth it, superb figure.

    All the best
