    I really like the way the swapped legs, TDW hands/feet, and spike weapon came out. I used some extra pieces and Lego's to add some flare to her back. I could go either way on it.

    Those are the Takara Legends releases of those figures. The heads are accurate to the Headmasters series.

    Correct, these are the Takara LG ones.

    However, Weirdwolf is a mixture of a few things:

    LG Weirdwolf body & legs
    TR Weirdwolf arms (I like the Decepticon badge on the upper shoulders)
    TR head with the Fix-it FI-01 face plate (the white matched better than the Takara one)

    I ended up with the Fix-it set for Cerebros and figured I'd see what it would look like. I have another set of the Fix-it face plates to turn TR versions into the Japanese Headmaster style if anyone is interested.

    G1 Cliffjumper was the first Transformer toy that I ever got as a kid.

    At least with the T30 figure, he's the right size and has his glass gas gun as well as a Targetmaster. There's no parts-forming here, other than his weapons.

    I wish that mold had gotten a new head sculpt (and didn’t have the OG WFC chest) - its a really quality little figure, and the arm transformation is really cool.

    i feel like as lauded as t30 is, the legends are really underappreciated. they really helped kick off nu-generations with a bang n optimus n bumblebee were both stellar little toys that set the tone for what to expect from the price point.

    Siege Jetfire is still the best of the lot, IMHO, but I love all my CHUG Jetfires. :cool:
