    Wasn't acid widely used at the end of the 80s and early 90s? Pretty sure that would explain the Day-Glo effects in G2

    Having seen the Newage re-tool, I'd be interested in a Straxxus version of Sovereign.

    Even the popular ski jackets and other clothing from then was crazy bright pastels- teal, magenta, you name it.

    Anyone think that at this point Fanstoys could successfully sell a Lord Straxus retool of this mode purely on the strength of their own name rather the character's actual popularity?

    I doubt they'd do it. They'd have to commit resources to retool and recolor this mold for an obscure, lesser known character. FT hasn't even been doing repaints like they used to like they did with FT Dinos and FT Phoenix. No news of G2 repaints of their Stunitocons and Aerialbots.
    If FT does anything with this mold they'd probably do Marvel comics or toy repaint.

    This tiny piece has fallen off my figure and I can’t for the life of me figure out where from

    The other day I put away my Sovereign and Power Baser, but before I did I took pictures of how I think this reunion between Galvatron and a revived and powered up Powermaster Optimus Prime would’ve went:

    “We meet again, Megatron…”

    “Megatron is no more. Now, there is only GALVATRON!”

    “Whatever you say…Megatron.”

    something similar happened to a good mate of mine late 80's / early 90's. He was at a party one Saturday night and another dude dropped some acid and had a truly terrifying trip (which he described to me in detail) and never touched it again after that.

    I have a MISB Sovereign FT-16M for sale in the Junkion Exchange that I bought to keep as a MISB second, if anyone is still needing one.
