For me, it had to be Alternators Smokescreen. Such a gorgeous Rally WRC.
I don't completely understand the question. Are you saying it made you say "wow" or made you yawn? I really do not get the picture reference.
Too many to list since 1984, from G1 Soundwave through MP Soundwave and many, many others. It's one of the reasons this franchise made such a lasting impact on me and continues to keep me just as obsessed as I was thirty years ago.
Yeah... it's the wow factor. Probably Fire Convoy. That guy bought me kicking any screaming back into collecting.
The entire MP line (though I can't afford them), Generations Voyager Whirl/ Roadbuster/ Springer/ Rhinox, Unicron
MGT-01 "Delicate Warrior" (Arcee) was the 'wow' figure that got me back into collecting.
The first time I saw the prototype for Movie Prime (the 07 version). I honestly thought it was the best Optimus toy I'd ever seen!
MMC Talon. I hadn't bought any 3P up to that point, but it just looked amazing and I was sold on rex from then on.
Rusty Evasion Mode Optimus Prime. I'd like the look of the regular version but it just lacked paint apps and just looked very toy-ish. Then I saw that and I just had to have it.
The original master piece optimus. I'd seen pics, but at the time (2003/4?) I never would have considered importing and he was expensive (certainly way more than I was used to paying for TF's back then). However, I saw him in a collectors shop in Bristol, and it was love at first sight. I just seemed to carry him around the shop and wouldn't put him down. The guy behind the counter said "yup, he's buying him today!". And I did. £80. Still got him. Still love him.
MP-20 Wheeljack. Two of those beautiful mofos will be mine courtesy of Japanese Amazon.
Alternators Jaguar XK Ravage - A Jaguar car that turns into a jaguar robot cat? Instant buy when I came across it.
Perfect Effect Guardian - Their Warden I could pass on, but the Brave Maximus repaint? Gorgeous. Simply gorgeous. Now I wish I had the stupid crazy funds to buy a Brave Maximus to go along with this.
Fans Toys Scoria - The Dinobots how I always wanted them, and to think... there are four more coming. Sorry MP Grimmy, you are no longer the coolest MP on the block. Takara must be looking at this and go "goddammit..."
When the pics of BT Smokescreen and MP 01 Optimus were leaked. Felt like I was 10 years old again and seeing Transformers for the first time again.
Yup mp-01 blew everything before it out of the water, seeing the anniversary edition in TRU made me feel 5 again.
Also see avatar and signature for figures that made me go
Leonardo DiCaprio is biting his fist because it's made of apple pie. So basically, which Transformer made you want to eat your own pie hand?
Generations Springer. Bad Ass.
Powermaster Optimus Prime
MP Grimlock - so good he got promoted to Classics in my collection
Generations Armada Starscream
Kabaya God Ginrai and Overlord
Scarlett Johanssingeon in the Avengers Black Widow outfit.
Dat Voyager Brainstorm. Beautiful headsculpt with the Headmaster gimmick!
