    Thanks, it's been a fun & amusing project. :)  Glad I was able to make you & others smile and have a good laugh.:D 
    I got one CW Skylynx in a case with Onslaught on line. The other I found in the wild at a walmart by pure chance. They're good, but not as good as the original G1. :buttrock

    My namesake. My favorite transformer growing up. I had my official cons outnumbered so I made him from my broken Magnus. All stickers and ware are over 25 years old. I used to jam a gun into his wrist cause he didn't have his fists. Hes in pretty great shape considering how much he was abused. And he's not broken in the usual places. Just one smokestack. That's it. The teeth on the leg ratchets are his only weakness but they do lock in place. I had scotch taped a rubsign on the top of the cab. Can't be seen in this pic.

    Like I said, Powermaster Optimus Prime is a masterpiece. And the best Optimus Prime figure ever made. In any color.

    I really liked the book ones. Opened to reveal the figure without having to open the package, lovely artworks etc. Beautiful.

    G2 has my favorite "reissues". Followed by RID.

    That is, if repaints count.

    Couldn't have put it better myself.
    I think I may have spent more time staring at the Terrorcons in the catalogs than any other TF, that's how much I wanted them. Poor Sinnertwin had to manage by himself for a while, since I got him a while before any of the others. The day my dad came home from a business trip with a suitcase full of Terrorcons...that was a great day :)

    Yeah, that was during the 4 years we lived in Germany, but my dad's work would frequently send him on business trips back to the US. Stuff was cheaper there, so he had me make a list of the stuff I wanted, which was TFs and NTSC NES games :D 
    He was a bigwig at UPS and sometimes was gone on business trips for a month at a time, but he always had a surprise for me when he got back.

    I'm impressed that he identified the rest of the Terrorcons to help you complete the set, and knew they were the ones you were fixating on. Not every parent is able to engage on that kind of level. Very cool!

    I should bring mine home from the office and get photos.
    Rippersnapper was the only one I got from the store; my Hun-Gurrr came from a neighborhood yard sale. He was the only Decepticon who didn't get thrown away, destroyed or lost in a move -- and that's only because he lived in my backpack because we used him frequently as a Dungeons & Dragons prop!

    idk, do people count the repaints in various lines as reissues/g1s? because I put my g2 figures, machine wars, and some of the RID/universe figures with my g1's.
    I love Rodimus Prime as a figure. While not as cool as his Hot Rod toy, or the g1 optimus figures, still an awesome figure. And a fantastic leader toy.

    my only complaint about the figure is that the "cab" isn't a complete toy. But, then again, nor was the g1. However, PM was. Which is why I like it best.
