    It recently occurred to me that this is still the best official Jazz and grabbed the United version Ive been wanting since it was new. Just came in today.

    I think I'd be satisfied with a new Drift if they redid the shoulder articulation, at least. When I owned Generations Drift, I remember being frustrated by the specifics of the range. Though, I guess that's the cost of focusing on 2-handing the big sword, which I definitely took advantage of :D .

    No way they can match build quality, and I imagine accessory count would be quickly axed, but I would at least like to see them try their hand at Drift once more.

    (And maybe they can do MTMTE to not step on the toes of people who own this original figure.)

    Yeah, you're probably right about that. I think you have a good point because, in my opinion, Hasbro's track record with RID 2001 updates has been middling to poor. I started my RID 2001 collection because I knew I wouldn't get the build quality I'm looking for.

    You're in luck, my Saurian friend. RID 2001 is a veritable garden full of criminally underrated molds, plus the majority of the Autobot figures - barring Magnus - can pose toe-to-toe with modern standards.

    Legacy Copy Convoy today. It was almost Magmatron today, but I found myself having more fun pitting this small doppelganger against the Goliathsaur here.

    Classics is probably my favorite of the bunch and has the best alt mode by far, but Titans Return is the most fun to flip back and forth between modes, SS86 has the most posable robot mode, and the G1 toy has a very pretty face

    Haven't grabbed one yet, just waiting for the stars to align and to see one for a good price while I'm actively thinking "I should pick up PotP Rodimus" but I do intend on expanding the Hot Rod collection
