    I love that figure for so many reasons. Called "Circuit", it was originally part of the Japanese exclusive Operation Combination line, specifically one of the Sixturbo Micromaster combining team. It would have been originally released in 1992, and is no doubt based on Ayrton Senna's Marlboro McLaren Honda F1 car, which of course was hugely loved in Japan because of the Honda partnership.

    It was reissued in Japan by Takara in 2002 and we even got carded single packed versions in the West by Hasbro as Transformers Universe Streetwise (part of Universe Defensor). Which is where you would have grabbed it, I would guess :)

    Uploading these on my phone while I wait for my takeaway to be ready. So if they don't work this'll be swiftly deleted!

    EDIT: Huzzah! It works! :D 

    Hey, it's Brick Springhorn & the 10th avenue band!

    Yeah, I knew him as Streetwise. I was very confused when I found TFWiki and learned that Streetwise was a police car, and moreover, there weren't any F1 cars or Lamborghinis in the Protectobots.

    Maybe one day I'll track him down again, along with the rest of the team.

    Quick Edit:

    Here in the UK, they were sold as part of Energon instead of Universe.

    Cheers guys, totally regret selling my galvatron from this mould - £30, someone got a bargain :( 

    I'd love to have the megatron or galvatron back.

    On 16 bit games, illusion of time. My favourite snes game of all time

    **** Illusion of time. That game is a love hate things for me. Loved it loads, but TWICE got stuck near the end of the game by getting stuck on long wall section by doing something wrong and having to restart the game. Grrrrr.

    Favourite retro game apart from the classics? Maximum Carnage or Alien 3. Love them both so much.

    Now tempted for a mega drive and road rage though!

    Sean, your Star Wars pics in the wild are - somehow - even better than your TF pics. These are actually so good I feel like you should submit them somewhere to be featured?

    Streets of Rage is one of my all time favourites! I can complete the first 4 or 5 levels just on timing! (Maybe)
