    I just didn't want to replace them, since I had already bought seven brown ones

    A tricky question.

    Between a US release MISB item and Japanese release MIB item, which one will you go for? Given all other coditions are the same.

    Oh Japanese MIB hands down. The boxes are just...way cooler for some reason and that way I could mess with the figure without altering the value.

    This is my g1 overlord. I got him for £170, he is complete and in perfect condition, he even has 2 of his missiles still on the sprue.
    I think no one really bid on him because he was covered in permanent black marker but some warm water and a magic eraser took care of that. :)

    Are you kidding me? I paid $400 for mine and still have to find him some missiles. That's an amazing deal!

    Blades got lost in the mail on the way to my office but finally showed up today. With five Protectobots I could finally form...

    I was afraid I wouldn't have space for Defensor on my shelf until I realized he'd fit neatly in the spot where four Protectobots once stood.

    Looks great!

    I never had a complete combiner as a kid. Just a mismatch formed from different teams and I can't even recall if I ever had a complete "Franken Gestalt".

    I had Hotspot, Deadend, Blot, and Rippersnapper for sure. And Longhaul was the only Constructicon so he was...useless lol. Not to mention Hotspot was the only Autobot of the group lmao....

    Awesome, love Defensor. I rembemer getting Hotspot one summer as a kid. I didn't know he was a combiner until I unfolded his instruction sheet, and thought how cool it would be to have a complete set. I never saw the other limb bots in the shops, so couldn't pester my mum for them.
    So imagine my surprise when I opened my Christmas presents that year to find Blades, First Aid, Streetwise, and Groove.

    Of course, the only other Combiners I had were Dragstrip, Brawl, Swindle, and G2 Skydive, so he didn't have anyone to battle with.

    Hey guys, I have a wanted thread but I also figured I would ask here. I need the sword and the blaster (not the missile launcher) for G1 Sludge. Found a really nice one on ebay but he was missing these two accessories. Any help is appreciated!
