    Well first off let me say hi to all you guys here at tfw2005.

    I'd Also like to say hi to Vangelus, Peaugh, Sean Long, and Optibotimus from youtube. Without you guys, I would never have had the quality of figures that I do.

    So, I have been busy these last few weeks with adding my my collection.

    lets see,

    Cyberverse:

    Crowbar
    Megatron
    Powerglide
    Blackout
    Ironhide

    Deluxe:

    Sideways
    Sidearm Sideswipe
    DotM Barricade
    Crankcase
    Battle in space Hotrod
    Battle in space Cyclonus

    Voyager:

    Battle blades Optimus Prime
    DotM Megatron
    RotF Megatron (flying jet tank from space!)
    Dotm Shockwave
    Skyhammer


    All of these I bought in the last 6 weeks. I'm glad my wife understands my collecting habit. : )

    And on my wishlist are the 3 not-insecticons from fansproject, Generations Warpath, cyberverse guzzle and flak.

    Does anyone know a good place to buy a 3 pack set of generations classic Starscream, Skywarp, and Thundercracker?

    Just wait till you start getting deep into Fansproject stuff, Botcon stuff, Club stuff, import stuff, etc and they all seem to hit at the same time. I was both happy and surprised to find a dollar in my jeans pocket before I washed them today. Thought I spent every last buck at our last local meetup.

    Pretty sure that doesn't exist.

    Lol, great time to start collecting with so many different titles and companies than when some us started back in the late 90's and G1 and Beastwars were the only game in town.

    I know,

    I'm 35 now. The only seeker I have right now is a generations classic Thrust just because it was the seeker I had as a kid.

    Btw, does there exsist a new and improved G1 Devastator/constructicon set? I see a G1 recolored legends Rotf set at my local ToysRus all the time, but I keep passing on it.

    There was a Classics version that you might be able to spot on Ebay. But I haven't seen anything Generations for Devastator for awhile, other than Third Party ideas.

    I wouldn't suggest the Classics Devastator. It's Devastator in name only.

    Really, there isn't an updated Devastator to date (unless you count Sixbuilder, but that was some time ago). Which is why many people have gone into customizing a Devastator from a select set of past figures. And then there's companies that straddle the line of Trademark Infringement who are currently in the process of making their versions of an updated Devastator to be produced and distributed.

    They run a pretty penny though.

    They are pretty decent though they do have flaws and will run about 30ish dollars apiece.

    Thundercracker just got a mas release and you can find Starscream on the ebay, the only hard one to find is Skywarp and the CHMS is not a bad one if you don't mind knock offs.

    Welcome!

    New Devastator? There's a couple of third-party toys in the offing. They will be pricey.

    Classics Seekers would have to be purchased separately from each other. Again, costing more than if you'd been quick in the shops.
