    Oh. Perfect! I shortsightedly assumed that you didn't already have it. They'll surely make a great pair.

    Haha, thanks for all your help. If you have time, and purely to satisfy my impatience, do you have the possibility of making a pic of laser prime next to dreading in robot mode? Obviously this is not important as I'll do it myself in about a month

    I'll get him out and try for a pic. I like LPrime, but mine's creaky as hell and is missing the sword (got him at a flea market a week or so before his release), so I often just keep him in storage in truck mode. It won't be a high-quality set, but I'll try for a few.

    G2 was my first foray into the world of The Transformers.

    I remember the cartoon, and playing with a handful of toys from that era. Two figures from my childhood I found recently were part of the G2 Combaticons. Swindle, who I have very vivid memories of. I remember his box art, seeing Bruticus on the back of it, and wanting to see the real thing combined. Vortex is the other, and he's... Weirdly mysterious to me? He's a toy I have zero childhood recollection of, but I think is subconsciously the reason why I keep thinking G1 Vortex is supposed to be blue instead of grey.(CW Vortex's colours were weirdly foreign to me, while the UW version's strange blue bits felt indescribably 'right' to me?)

    Recently I got the G2 Combiner Wars Bruticus set. It's not 100% ideal to me for reasons both large and small, but I adore its presence on my shelf. Might be nostalgia speaking, but it tickles a special part of my heart unlike any other combiner I have(AKA more than common sense). Bruticus is my favourite scramble combiner due to his highly varied array of vehicles and overall cool design. Then you add in those wacky 90's colours? Hot damn! <3 <3 <3

    Hasbro, please give me G2 Defensor and G2 Devastator. I'll be your best friend! Honest engines!

    The 90s were an amazing time. G2 and Beast Wars. What a time to be a kid

    For me, the Cyberjets were really the stars of G2. Obviously Dreadwing, Laser Prime & Tank Megatron were the headliners. But the Cyberjets were so stylish. MAde you wonder why all jet transformers weren't made that way. Remember G1 Starscream and all that partsforming nonsense. G2.4ever

    All my G2 related toys. There are a few customs and official updates in there too.

    I had only one of them, Hooligan, but until Beast Wars was released it was my favourite transformer purely because of the articulation. That you could move it around so much was mindblowing to me. That and the adjustable wings.

    That's so sweet, is that Turmoil's gang? I love that Drift book. I'm pretty sure Drift & Turmoil would fit into g2 nicely

    Anyone here have thoughts on the TR Laser Prime??

    Is it possible to take off the plane kibble?

    @Nitro Zeus if you're free, I was wondering if you had any legends sized guys? How do they scale to laser prime?

    I want to make legends (iron factory, shapeshift Inc etc) the Base scale of my collection. So that way dreadwing becomes a bigger bot like he should be. But I was wondering if prime would be too big.

    I don't have any 3P guys, but I've got my Deskbot Team of small guys and I can already tell that Laser Prime is quite monumental in comparison. Dreadwing actually looks really good towering over them, but then again, I've only got some Movie Legends, Legions, and one Scout, not anything that would actually look fitting. Phone's not on me.
