    Those are two of my favorites!

    If you just got them, be really careful with the transformations and combined mode! There are a few little clips that will get stress-marks really easily, if you use too much pressure

    Here are mine on display. I should probably stand up the little Powermasters in front of them eventually.

    Yeah, the ones I got already had stress marks. In fact, the end of the center clip on Darkwing's cockpit broke off (it already had a bad stress mark on it) the first day I handled it. I wasn't too stressed, though, as it still clips in with the two on the sides. Breakages on these two are probably unavoidable, as the connector points are really tight.

    Recently I've been picking up more G2's but many have got battered stickers, anyone doing repro stickers for G2?

    Yeah, it's a shame. I love the combined mode, but think I've only done it once with my current set. So far, I haven't damaged them Transforming a few times on their own.

    TFC was great! Nice durable bookshelf friendly packaging. My favorite is Starscream with the anime paintjob and Megatron gun, followed closely by the Minibots and Insecticons. Too bad about Prowl, Hound and Jazz having the facial mold degradation.

    Following Liokaiser’s example earlier, the Takara reissues from 2006 were very nice. Cool packaging with the open flap front panels, technical specs and ads on the enclosed pamphlet with pullout posters, and faithful reissues of some G1 favorites. Blaster (Broadcast) I found in a vintage toy hobby shop. My brother and a friend actually got it for me as a gift since I couldn’t afford it at the time. I was very excited.

    Awesome that he came with Steeljaw as well. Too bad I couldn’t read the Japanese language on the panel booklet but the pics in it were still nice to look at.

    I never had Blaster before and I loved his character in the show. So full of attitude and style for such a simple design. Blaster is just a chunky block of collected G1 coolness. He’s a excellent foil for Soundwave and just a fun character to have in your collection.

It's paid for and i love it but now I'm going to be trying next to get maybe end of this month possible next month a G1 Highbrow. I've completed my Transformers G1 dinobots set finally after 16yrs it took to get this figure and a complete set at that matter.
