    Scoop!
    My friend had the old G1 version, and I kind of loved him. I'm not sure why. Maybe I just saw on the right day? Whatever, I definitely thought he was a cool toy, back in '88 or '89 when I saw him. Probably one of the last TF's I enjoyed unselfconsciously.

    If he is, I don’t think it’s of the dreaded GPS variety. I got one in a bulk lot purchase, before selling on, and he was pretty robust.

    It's gold, but it doesn't have large metal flake in it. I've owned a few and never seen one break due to GPS.

    You should consider a more neutrally coloured lightbox at some point...

    I was just messing around with G1 Scoop and Thrilling 30 Scoop the other day. Really like the T30 Scoop. Wish they would do Quickmix and Landfill.

    If they did it now, they'd be headmasters instead of targetmasters. Which is a huge shame. Wished they'd be doing both.

    Amazingly of all these toys I only had 4 of these as a child. The rest I am enjoying for the first time as an adult. Also have another 10-15 figures not pictured. Getting quite the collection now!

    God, me too! And a proper release of Needlenose and Spinister.

    Ha! Beautiful!

    Ooooh, which four? From the ones in that photo I had five of 'em as a kid. Ravage and Rumble (maybe that counts as one because they came in a pack?), Grapple, Ironhide, and Shrapnel. I should really copy you and do another photo of the ones I had as a kid.

    Who doesn't love Trailbreaker?

    INORITE? :D 
    "Hey, Skywarp, are you a reissue or are you just happy to see me?" :lol 

    Very nice! Keep going!

    TB is one of the 2 '84 Autobot cars I didn't have as a child, the other being Ironhide. Not that I didn't want one; I would stare at him in the catalogs and wish for one. As I've mentioned on here before, when I discovered the online community around 1999, Silverbolt was the first online TF purchase I made, but guess who was #2...
