Hello, fair TFW'ers! I seek a noble hero to aid me in vanquishing a curse most foul! You see, it all began when I purchased one used G2 Sideswipe from a fellow here. It arrived totally unlike his description, banged up and near ruined. But as I desired this figure, I sought to purchase it again, with the hopes of encountering an honest merchant. Alas, the second seller was as crooked as the first, and verily did mail me a piece of shit. Thrice, I ventured in search of the black G2 Sideswipe, without even so much as a care for chrome or stickers or even tires. However, cursed am I and cursed is he, for the THIRD copy of this same figure purchased was shipped to me irresponsibly by a seller who wished to pocket the shipping charge and instead, throw my prize in a bubble envelope. Where, suffice to say, the rigors of cross-country travel were not kind. Now I find myself with three different copies of the same figure, all in dismal shape, all depressing evidence of deception by sellers more interested in a sale than honesty. -------------------------------- So yeah. If anyone has a G2 Sideswipe for sale or trade, I'm listening. I'm just about fed up with people lying to me, and at this point, all I even need to make one halfway decent figure is a roof/windshield part. I don't need weapons, I don't need chromed bits, I don't need the tires or fists or feet or head or screws or anything. I just need a pretty black roof, and maybe the doors, that aren't cracked, scratched, scuffed, broken, or chipped to hell. In fact, if anyone has the parts I need, I can trade you parts from one of my carcasses. Like maybe you want an extra red head and hands to make a Cartoon accurate G1 Red Alert? I can help you out. I've got two extras. This started out as just kinda sorta wanting the figure, now it's become an unholy obsession. I'm almost tempted to blow the ridiculous amount of money for a MISB one just so I KNOW it can't have been screwed with, and there's no way it could be worn or damaged. Someone please help me break this curse! And incidentally, I have more of a extensive tradelist and want list, linked here, if you'd care to gander at my wares. Thanks!
