    Yeah, I hope we get a G2 Sideswipe. With some new guns and maybe a sword.

    But I would like to see the actual ActionMaster colors for Jazz. The G2 color scheme just seemed too dull to me.

    what was that truck in UK that was repainted as Optimus Prime in Machine Wars? I'd love to get one of those.

    but i'd be interested if they started making playsets and vehicles like they made for action Masters....i know it'll never happen, but it's a dream to dream.

    You can technically squish soundwave into a somewhat coherent tape deck mode.

    i really hope the more model kit like figures take off because as much as i've kinda grown to hate the pre-BB films, having a bunch of little figures of them is just too good to pass up.

    If mainline won't give me Action Master Thundercracker, then Blokees can be my new best friend

    I saw on either here or maybe Facebook, someone swapped the thighs on Grimlock and Slag which does makes them both look better. I also swapped the knees joints on Scavenger and Long Haul since the green knees on purple legs looked weird and purple knees on green legs looked odd.

    Also, how have everyone been displaying these? I'm thinking wall mounted display. Though a table top would allow for some cool posing.

    I remember reading in the thread October. You can reach out to Blokees on facebook messenger, they are very responsive.

    Thunderclash is my grail. I got the KO, but GPS meant that it exploded in the mail before I opened it. Right now it's sitting peacefully in alt mode, never to be touched or transformed again, lest more pieces fall off like cosmic rust...

    Nope. GPS is structural instability in the plastic itself due to the mixing of metallic flakes, essentially turning it into Swiss cheese on a microscopic level. No treatment or topical solutions will solve it.

    I've been saying for frickin' years that there should be a company just making GPS-free replacement parts for vintage figures prone to breakage. Not full figures, just the parts, for fans to replace themselves.

    But to answer your question, no, sadly there is not. (yet)
