    What's up. Probably not the only one that has a little more time on his/her hands because of quarantine life. That being said, do you still have some of the 3rd party kits, upgrades, figures, obscure add-ons from back in the day?...I mean 5-6 years back or even more if you've been collecting for a while. If so, this thread is dedicated to them! Would you consider them 3rd Party Hall of Fame material?
    Post a pic and let us cure some boredom by trying to name it. Of course, I know the thread is going to be limited because everything can't be considered old, but hey...boredom.

    I'll start it off with:
    third party throwbacks (1).jpg third party throwbacks (2).jpg

    not a hall of famer, but definitely enjoyable/fun. BTW, I know we can stay civil...it's in us.
    carry on...

    I have that one, or possibly a KO of it. I like the small Megatron guns that can get manhandled by bigger figs.

    I didn't really start buying 3rd party until the Predaking War. But I do have the old Fansproject kit to make Classics Hot Rod into Rodimus. Protector, I think it was.

    It's the original Reflector team and the stealth version from whatever exclusive. I had to look up the name, Scouting Force.

    Oldest 3rd party upgrade I have is several of the shoulder cannons (with Armada Star Saber) for the Allternator Binaltech line. Alt/BT ran from 2003 until 2008 (apparently) and those must've been from pretty early in the line since they were made for the earlier figures like the Subaru's, the Mazda and the Jeep (I think).

    Here's Streak with two of those:

    Nice! I still love the Alternators line and wish it would have gotten more figures and a better release.

    Yeah, I have several of those and the swords and lightsabers that were bundled with them on eBay. Back in the days of "thirteen dollars seems high for that... but I suppose it's not the worst."

    Actually busted out my classics Hot Rod and my KO Protector kit few days back. Classics Prime with the G3 Trailer also gets regularly put back on the shelf as well.

    Definitely a unique little dude and after a little floor polish, his joints are nice and sturdy. What I want to know is if his chrome is supposed to be quite so yellow.

    Third-party Masterpiece Binaltech is one of my most fervent impossible toy wishes.

    Not sure if they count, but I think it was "Junkion Blacksmith" who put out those triple changing headmasters of classic g1 characters?

    I have Soundwave, Ultra Magnus, and Blaster.

    I may post pics if anyone cares...
