    Wish he got a re-release in POTP or something. I need a good Gears.

    T30 Gears seems pricey from what I've seen.

    Agreed.
    He is. I saw him for $35 Transformerland.com and jumped on it. Worst thing is, I swear I saw him for like $10-$15 at a comic book shop a year or two after he came out.

    Anyway, here's Generations Arcee!

    I actually really liked how she served as a second-in-command to Optimus Prime in the latter days of the old IDW comics continuity. 20200519_162732.jpg
    And how she punched Starscream one time. 20200519_163447.jpg

    I picked up T30 Gears with partner Eclipse and instructions for $42 at Saga Toys. Compared to eBay prices, not a bad deal.

    Metroplex is probably my favorite T30 figure that I still have. He came with me when I had to move to Arizona, and then back to California!

    Having Iron Factory Turrets and Manacle and Siege Sixgun helps him seem fully complete.

    I love Roadbuster... He's just a big chunky bot of destruction as the Cybertronian Doomslayer. And yes he didn't come with weapons so I decided to make my own weapons pack of him.

    MAJOR UPGRADE!

    Looks like I don't need the Takara version after all!

    Sorry if this seems unnecesary but Arcee not being able to hold her guns properly reminds me of this:

    I currently own Arcee, Chromia, Waspinator, and Brainstorm. I like Brainstorm the most of those. It's a bit disappointing that Arcana isn't compatible with Titans Return toys, but that's really the fault of TR. When it's in robot mode, I enjoy attaching the guns to the nosecone so it looks like Brainstorm has shoulder-mounted cannons.

    I guess Payload will be his own character when I get ER Fuzor and Blast Master.
