    GEN 1 TRANSFORMER PULL BACK POP UP AUTOBOT WORKING NICE - eBay (item 180322415260 end time Jan-23-09 12:48:44 PST)

    hi guys, first time poster.
    i barely ever see these because they were extremely simple to transform, and since half the fun of transformers is the puzzle that is the transformation.
    does anyone still have one/had one?
    i remember now looking at this that i had one of the spring loaded ones.
    what did you like about them/what dont you like about them? why do you think they made these for only a short time?
    discuss please! :thumbs2:

    kiddle is things that are use in alt mode that shouldnt be there in robot mode. like beast wars depthcharges back is really large.

    i think they look awsome bc i just like the look.

    i believe they were part of the weckers in the uk comics but dont quote me on that.

    ohhh ok! i completely understand now.
    the only time i can really tolerate that is my soundwave from the animated series, who comes with a guitar, which looks awesome on his hood in car mode or in his hands in bot mode =)
    (heres the bot in question)
    Transformers Deluxe Autobot SOUNDWAVE Animated Series - eBay (item 360122785729 end time Feb-08-09 13:33:21 PST)
    but its not my favorite depiction of soundwave. oddly enough, one of my favorite depictions of him is when he was in family guy. that was probably the funniest joke i have seen on that terribly unfunny show.

    Welcome to the forum.

    I have Twin Twist x 2 and Topspin x 2. I also have a similar looking KO from the 80's.

    I like them, they make a nice addition to my Autobot army.

    This thread makes me feel old :p 


    And, for the record, my personal favorite Soundwave is Music Label SW. Pricey, but damn near perfect in every respect.

    As to these guys, I love them for the fact that they were in the Wreckers. Their personalities are also loads of fun.

    Wow, a thread about Topspin and Twintwist! I never thought I'd see the day.

    For the fans of these - the good news is they're extremely easy to get ;-)

    When you want to find out about a certain character or toy; our resource section is a good place to start. There's also:

    Transformers Wiki - TFwiki.net
    My favorite wiki I have ever read. Pretty comprehensive on almost every thing Transformers.

    Welcome to TFU.INFO The Alpha Trion and Omega Prime of Transforming Toys - www.tfu.info
    A toy database that's nice to use when identifying figures and such.

    It uses a mini sd memory card I believe. Bit tricky to get your hands on...but its really more of a display piece, than MP3 player.
