Name a few, looking for suggestions!
Note: Thanks, and fixed
Yes, your Meg is on the way. Only asking for G1 toy suggestions btw.
I love all the headmaster figures. I just love the brillant colors and futurist car/plane modes. Plus with the headmaster gimmicks and the compartment for them to pilot the transectors.
the autobot monsterbots. nice lookin' bot and beat modes all around.
I always personally thought that Inferno was awesome. Aesthetically, he's probably got one of the best robot modes of the line. The way his arms are set up kinda messes up his vehicle mode, a bit, though, but it's not too bad. He's got some of the best 'bot mode proportions the line has to offer, with lots of nice molded detail, and a killer headsculpt.
I really liked Hung-grr (or however you spell it), and Apeface. I am pretty sure a lot of others like them to but they didn't get enough media credit in my opinion.
I think most of the G1 cars like Prowl, Bluestreak were underrated and they're vehicle modes are still decent today's standards.
Nice colors, 2 big guns , lots of diffrent mode , he dident get as much attention as ehs hould have since Sixshoot also was relesed. I belive they put more energy to making Sixshoot and les on Quikswitch. But Quikswitchnis just a normal good toy that ppl dislike for some reason.
Snapdragon ; two guns, headmaster, three modes, a dinosaur mode included, fairly well articulated.
Broadside..... nah I'm just kidding, hes just a brick.
I like a lot of Micromasters - the Decepticon Military Patrol being a big fave.
I totally agree with folks who said Micromasters and Headmasters.
I would also add a few others:
Octane: the other two Decepticon triple-changers get more love, but he has IMO the nicest robot mode of the three.
Throttlebots: taken on their own they're not too impressive, but as a set of six I think they are really great. Their proportions in car mode are a cute, appealing halfway-point between Choro-Q and realism.
Perceptor: I dunno, maybe he's not really UNDER-rated.... he probably has lots of fans, you just don't hear his toy mentioned much. Anyway, I think he's one of the cooler and more unique alt-mode ideas, and has one of the nicer-looking robot modes from that era.
Crosshairs is pretty cool. And yeah, any of the Headmasters provides plenty of value.
I agree also that Quickswitch is very underrated, and can be had for cheap still.
Blades-Cause,why he's The only G1 figure ihave and He's a Knockoff,That'll Change after i get Reissue Soundwave.
yay another Quikswitch lover , feel the love
Messed around with Broadside once. He's pretty neat. And so are the Gestalts.
Doubledealer was neat. He's also the only G1 figure I still have intact, buried in a closet somewhere. Missile carrier mode looks good, bird mode looks... well, hilarious, and bot mode is nice and impressive looking. Plus he's an autobot and a decepticon.
I don't know what really defines "underrated", unless you mean "anyone other than Grimlock, Prime, megs, Jazz, and Prowl"
Apeface. He looks even more awesome if you can find a second gun for him so he has one for each side in jet mode.
The Micromaster transporters, especially the crane truck.
Do you mean Erector? I had Erector. He was cool. I have no idea where he went though.
G1 Getaway. Even un-armed and without a powermaster he's still fun.
Separate names with a comma.
