    Isn't he supposed to be a Junkion? Could've just left the faction symbols out entirely.

    Also it took me way too long to realize that in order for Bludgeon's shell to sit flush with the robot inside, you have to push the head out. Which the instructions don't mention.

    Also is it just me or is the paint caked a lot thicker on these '89 Pretenders than the originals? Would explain why they don't have as much paint wear where the helmet sits on.

    I'd love if there was a Shapeways adaptor to allow the Titanmaster to fit on the G1 body.

    The Firecons also had organic detail. Well Cindersaur and Flamefeather at least.

    Jeepers!!

    I just picked up g1 frenzy and rumble. Figures are in decent enough shape but stickers are beat to hell. Where would you all recommend getting replacement stickers?

    It's an old expression of surprise. I was just making a pun.

    Today I discovered that G1 Brainmasters are fully compatible with the Micromaster Rocket Base (which was the Autobot base in the Victory cartoon). Not sure I've ever seen this documented before but feels VERY intentional.

    So I noticed that this area has moulded seat backs (circled)

    And Brainmasters sit PERFECTLY in this space. Better than any Micromaster I've tried.

    Funny. I always thought what you call seatbacks were computer terminals.

    I had Flame when I was younger. Actually he and Actionmaster Blaster were my last childhood Transformers. Never thought to try the mini figure in the Countdown base.

    I actually won the base in the UK comic. They had a competition in the Christmas issue 250.

    Only disappointment was that it was the only competition where they didn't print the name of the winners.

    No worry.

    What's so surprising though?

    Nothing. I said jeepers and they're both jeeps hence the pun.
