    Part of the reason why I was in no rush to get it done fast was because I figured a lot of folks would have Botcon podcasting backlog to listen through. :lol

    In regards to the iGear "elegy" figure, it is the same size as the official MP Seekers. The downscaled MP Prime is taller than Classics Prime in 'bot mode (roughly the same size in alt mode, though), but matches up with the original MP Seekers.

    So, potential QC issues notwithstanding, the iGear coneheads should be the same size/scale as the Takara MP Seekers.

    Still have to slog through the Eiding and Botcon 5 podcasts... the longest ones left, of course.

    It was me on the other end of Tony's operation, pulling his photos from the server and posting to the front page. I was using my laptop just outside the panel room while Sol Fury continued to cover the panels inside.

    It was a pretty slick operation. :lol

    Oh man... don't waste your time checking the list, I never entered the contest. :( 

    I didn't realize how tricky question B colon was until you guys answered it.

    When I said "articulate to today's standards" I meant take the original toy and design, and give it articulation. Like when a customizer articulates a G1 toy. No biggy, though. :)  I'm just glad you guys could take the time to answer my questions.

    Also, I didn't know the opening line of my question was that screwed up. :crazy:

    I actually stumbled on "a newsie" which when said quickly also sounded like "an Uzi".


    I guess I didn't realize it was you no thought I remembered Tony talking about having someone at home front-paging stuff. Glad we had that excellent system set up b

    That was the plan, but I volunteered to frontpage since the panels were covered. I saw Silas's video so I was good for that panel anyway.

    - Battle Unicorn (as well as most end of line Beast Machines toys) were found in Canada's Maxi & Cie/Superstores.

    - If your talking just G1 USA for the toys then yes Predaking is the biggest combiner team.

    - Nice to see some Hydra love.......... oh and that West End Canada guy........ I met his mom, should have gotten her autograph.

    - Ah yes........ the Masterpiece Rodimus......... buh-bye my wallet. I can see a Hot Rodimus to Rodimus Convoy being a OX design spoiler change, face swap, simple Photon Laser to Photon Eliminator, and I guess...... helmet? I also agree I hope toy is not hindered by a bunch of gimmicks. But he has plenty of his own, shades, saw blade hand, repair hand, opening flame Matrix chest, training laser blade and shield, ect

    - No funny looks for Gobots, SPECIALLY Crasher.

    - I want G1 Road King (From Masterforce) given modern articulation....... and we have Slap Dash's (His G1 USA version) name registered. And I want a Chromedome too, considering how important he was in the Japan side of things, he got punked on his toy....... and his jr........ and well....... his PVC was ok.

    - Fav gimmick, Headmasters/Brainmasters. But I have a big love for Pretenders.

    - Magmatron had his "Orgy Mode", but....... yeah it's along the lines of Big Powered.

    - TFcon is soon! Don't miss out! Get your Protoman injection for a weekend!
