    A man after my own heart ;) 
    I was (and still am) all for show accuracy, so I do everything here minus the extra Dirge bombs and Ramjet fins.

    My quest for show accuracy led me to make a few other alterations, such as moving faction symbols to where they are in the show (including cutting a Bot symbol in half and placing it on each half of Grimlock's dino chest so it is where it is in the show), removing the pegs on the backs of Jazz's wings so I could completely fold them behind him, and cutting off the bottom side parts of Hot Rod's spoiler (the parts that notch into the backs of his legs).

    I transform G1s as the instructions document.

    @b-ice: I'm surprised you were able to get your D-con TMs transformed! When I bought mine, they already had stress marks :/

    For all the shit everybody always gives the firecons. They have such beautiful potential. And I always liked the easily identified bot modes too.

    These need reissued. Then made into Classics figures. Then Legion class. Then FOC. And then Masterpiece.

    Thanks for the replies, re: Coneheads.

    Guess there's no conclusion.

    For my part, as a kid, the toy instructions were sacrosanct, the cartoons got it wrong. (See also my continued fretting over the 'proper' colour of Starscream's fists...)

    Yeah, they were never 'coneheads' for me. I go by the lovely box art :)

    with a razor blade and patience, they are no longer prone to breakage, kinda like horri-bull, i didn't see the point in owning them if i couldn't transform them

    How about just straight to Masterpiece? I don't think I'd be able to throw money at TM-MPs fast enough. But this is a G1 thread, so yes, let's see them reissued!

    I agree. I had a lot of fun with this toy when I was a kid - the sparks helped, too!

    There is actually a pin removal tool you can get instead of a nail. It's a lot easier because of the weight and easier to hit with a hammer too. The tool is available in many different gauges. I can upload a pic of mine if you want to see what it looks like.

    I reprolabeld my Crosshairs and Sureshot
    [​IMG]
    Before.

    [​IMG]
    After.

    ... I know my pictures don't do them justice. But they clear up so much! That Crosshairs has been in my collection since my childhood.

    Very nice Skygarry. I just bought one myself. I'll have to get some of those labels for him! (Along with some for my Sixknight)

    A couple recent purchases.

    G1 Electronic Intercom Telephone System, complete, unused, MIB. Box has substantial flap crease but other than that, not too bad.

    Also, took me over a decade but I'm just now getting into the Headmasters. What a f'ng cool concept! Picked up this MIB Brainstorm with bubble and unapplied decals recently. Box is a bit wrinkly on the right side over the box art, but overall pretty displayable. So far, I have Brainstorm, Chromedome and Hosehead.
