    So, this past weekend was my first TFcon and when I got back home, there was a slip to pickup & sign for a package from the post office. So during my lunch break, I picked up a sirtoys shipment... the biggest I've gotten from them yet; and before I cracked that open and started sending figures to different rooms & shelves throughout the house, I decided to first unload everything I picked up from TFcon and take a pic.

    I saw a variety of comments in different threads of people sharing particular thoughts and/or pics; but didn't see a standalone thread and don't have time (or skill for that matter) right now to take super clea(n) pics ;) . I'd like to check back in a single place every now & again to read about peoples' TFcon experience(s) & see pics of their pickups... so, if such a thread already exists, hopefully a mod can move it to wherever is appropriate. Otherwise, please share!

    Oh, and that box on the left, behind the exclusives & scoria, and standing 22" high (by 11"x20") is the box from sirtoys I'm about to crack open.

    Awesome, love the ram man from MOTU! That was my first as a kid. I remember I begged my mom to get it while we were at jcpenney placing a catalog order for who knows what. That was the thing to do backnin the day.

    Also nice pickup on the topspin and twintwist g1 as well as the seaspray!
    Thanks for sharing

    Nice grab. Some interesting 3p stuff there. Looks like you got some vintage g1 loose figures. I hope to go to one of these conventions next year.

    I actually asked the same question in another TFCon thread. It's a KO of the CW ones KO OS CW Superion

    They're the OS KO versions sold at this past weekends TFcon. I asked the seller the name of the company and he said "JJ" below is a pic I took of the sign in from of the figures.

    Anywho, I just posted some pics in the thread you cited (KO OS CW Superion) as last night I tried putting a jet into the OS defensor, but it wasn't quite a good fit. A pic earlier in that thread had the limb inserted, but I'm wondering if they were using an earlier version (or at least slightly different one than what was at TFcon).

    (Looks like the aerialbots are upside down... oh well)

    Thanks, there were color variants that I hadn't seen before, (just to the left of them in the pic) and that topspin is actually turquoise and not blue. Don't know if it was color fading os age or an actual variant, but I picked it up regardless.

    Funny you mention catalog ordering, I was talking with someone at the convention about the store 'consumers' which was an all catalog order storefront, with a warehouse in the back and kind of like a precursor to 'service merchandise'

    Also picked up a bag of gobots that included scooter (in the pic to the right of the G2 ramjet). Guy was selling to me for pretty nice prices, since I would grab a bundle, make an offer & pay only to then find more stuff, make another offer and pay and then find more stuff. Rinse & repeat.

    I heard those are super rare. I just hope he doesn't forget where he puts it. MMC really stepped up on their invisible plastic technology! ;)

    Does this thread title borrow from Rick and Morty, if so should the title be "Show me what you got". It was a great episode.
