    Okay?

    I was hoping that there was somebody who *likes* taking pics of their collection, and would do as I asked.

    It's hard to judge scale looking at 2 different pics in 2 different tabs, and I don't have EVERYTHING, like some of you do.

    @Powerbomb Here's some I did of MFT Astrotrain along with the G1 version back in the day.

    [Edit] Soundwave and Megatron.
    Starscream (it's the old MFT version, not one of the newer versions)
    That's all I've got for now. Like I said, I'll try to get set up to take photos again soon and then I'll do comparisons with all the characters I have.

    Thanks!

    Now I want that Astrotrain. The *MFT one, not the G1. I had that, it was good for its time, but now he's only good for nostalgia.

    *What's that one called, btw? It's 3p name?

    Screw it, I'll just look up MFT on show-z.

    MS-26 Iron Sky. Also I edited my previous post to add in a few more posts I've shared over the years with G1 and legends figures.

    I, as many have said, have to say what a treat it is to look at your collection. Absolutely love seeing G1 and MP together and displayed so cleanly. Your display is truly a masterpiece.

    I took some comparison pics of NewAge and Magic Square Shockwaves.

    Other than this particular angle, the hole at the base of NA's grip isn't actually too bad.

    Here is MasterShooter's BrOOMstick vs. Matrix Workshop's M-54. Both third party Fracas figures.

    BrOOMstick has the advantage of more articulation, can be held by 4mm and 5mm grips, comes with a handheld saw, and can use 3mm clip mounts. It has a red face, just like G1.

    M-54 is more G1 accurate, has metallic paint, quick transformation, is more readily available and sells for less.

    Neither one got the gun mode right. BrOOMstick got the center barrel the wrong color. M-54 forgot the two smaller black barrels completely.
