    Are you a member of any of the Transformers FB groups where you live? I've gotten all sorts of good deals and obscure gems by going to the UK FB groups and asking for whatever I've been looking for.

    Wow. I am not much of a Classics collector, but those Abominus figures look great. That could basically fit in with a Masterpiece collection, even if the scale is a little too small. Rippersnapper was one of my favorite G1s (an odd choice, I know).

    Sharing some of the photos from a reshoot of the Clones, together with some "Reformatted" photos comparing vintage and contemporary. Hope you guys enjoy these as much as I did :)

    I've honestly stopped getting excited for the whole generation's line, right about the time of titan masters/combiner wars happened. I loved the generations' lines back when they were updated vehicles and looks of the original characters. Now they just remind me of all the g1 toys I don't have. And, I got limited space. lol So, when things like Fortress Maximus came out, I was like, well, I only got room for one gigantic city robot... So, I'll probably go with the original, eventually! lol

    With that said, I do think Abominus and Computron look neat. Not nearly as neat as the g1's do apart. But they do look neat combined. But, at the same time, they are my favorite combiners, so it is going to be hard for them to impress me. Especially with a lot of the features of the g1 figures appear to not be present. Like the big gigantic front plate that becomes a shield for Hun Grrr. Or the side arm guns on Scattershot, that connect to the connector ports.

    I’d recommend setting up some sort of account just for that, if you’re not getting any results from eBay. Fb sales bypass a lot of the fees that come with eBay, so it’s a better deal for sellers too. And, like I say, I’ve got stuff from fb groups that I doubt I’d have ever found (for a decent price) on eBay.

    Picked this guy up at a tag sale today for around $5 he’s broken around his pelvis and trigger nothing structural but his arms are fine. He stands better than any Shockwave I’ve ever seen :eek:  I forgot to look for the sight piece at the time of purchase so I went back and found it. Like a needle in a haystack of a tarp sprawled on the ground with loose marvel figures everywhere.
    Is this the Shackwave or another version? I can’t seem to find any stamps on it just the stickers.

    Wow, what a find! For the age he's not in that bad shape at all, considering how you found him. Very nice!

    Finding a shockwave in that good of condition is difficult. Especially a shackwave. Finding one that isn't broken at all, now that is the true challenge. $5 sounds like a damn good price for that! lol

    Well, I am fairly certain the optimus is a reissue. So, that might actually be the case.
