    Just got Twincast (and the BM DVD boxset) and now I've got the e-Hobby fever! Is it the classic G1-style box? Is it the limited run factor? I dunno what it is, but I think I'm in love!! I wanna get as many e-Hobby exclusives as I can before they skyrocket in price... Any suggestions on must-get e-Hobby TFs?

    I know how you feel, I just got Twincast, and love him. And the fact that he comes with a fembot dosent hurt anything. If I get any more Ehobby exclusives, which I probally will, they will be Magnificus and the repainted Ravage and Lazerbeak.

    And no, Twincast isnt a Decepticon, the fembot cassette is, so that may be why hes in a con box.

    No. He's still an Autobot.

    Apparently, EHobby had a surplus of the Decepticon/Destron boxes they used for their other recent releases like Ganymede/Magnificus, etc. So instead of having to print new boxes, they just used the old ones. Twincast still has an Autobot card in there.

    But note how his cassette, Flipsides, is the one out in front. She's a Decepticon sleeper-agent :D .

    Oooh, good luck Hook. It an expensive taste! I've got most of them so I'll see if I can highlight so good ones.

    Sunstorm of course. He rocks.
    Black and clear Starscream.
    Magnificus (the microman figure is added fun)
    the minibots
    ...

    You know what? They all rock, and you're going to want them all anyway, so just get whatever's at a good price. :D  Although the Hound and Blitzwing repaints are kinda crappy, I doubt they'll go up in price much.

    Why is that? I can see the hound one, but you'd think Diaclone colored Blitzwing would be more popular than he is.

    Hey I was busy today what can I say :lol 

    Congrats on Twincast though, as for recommendations I would suggest:

    - Magnificus and GaMade- Great black repaint of Perceptor as a Decepticon if you like Perceptor you'll like this one.

    - Laser Magnus- Ya a lot of people hate this guy but honestly I dont see were it comes from as I love him and cant recommend him enough.

    - Cobalt Sentry Team- Have yet to get these myself but they look awesome.

    Anyway those are my picks, some of the other ones like Overcharge and the repaint mini-bots are pretty good too but I dont think the toys themselves are worth it personally but again it depends if you like the moulds or not.

    I think I'll go with the least expensive e-Hobby ones and gradually work my way up.

    I've already got RM Skywarp/Thundercracker, but I don't think that counts as an e-Hobby.

    What about the gold Jazz and chromed Bluestreak? Any good? I dunno, I'd be concerned about chipping.

    Im also in love with all the G1 styled ehobby's boxes.
    Wish every transfomer made was like it.

    Right now's a good time to score Astrotrain, Desert Hound & Blitzwing.

    More recommendations-
    Anime Bluestreak
    Orion Pax
    Sunstorm & Hauler (aagghhhh so rare & expensive)
    Black Sideswipe
    Black Starscream
    Robotmasters Skywarp & Thundercracker
    G1 Inferno
    G1 Grey Skids

    So many more. All those should be on eBay.

    The only ones I have are the Cobalt Sentry cassette team and they're neat; great way to boost a Cassetticon army. Not sure how easy they are to find, though.

    No idea. I think it's just a bland color scheme, diaclone or not. I remember when it came out, a lot of people were saying it looked like a KO scheme.

    They're good too. I haven't had any chipping issues with mine, but I don't handle them much.

    Oh, and just to further the temptation:

    Heathens! That's why. :p  I'd been procrastinating getting a Diaclone Blitzwing for years before the E-hobby one saved me the trouble. Easily one of my favorites. Detritus OTOH, blah; one of the few I didn't get, along with Bling Jazz and Bluestreak.

    The ones that have no Diaclone or 'toon/mythos roots, I have no interest in...with the Minibots being an exception. I'd have paid that much just for a white TF VW.
