    Takara did originally in 1991 and 1992 as part of Battlestars and Operation Combination. These toys were then reissued and repainted in 2002 to 2004 by both Takara and Hasbro.

    All the best

    I love the new Micromasters, despite the fact that I can't get my only effects piece (from Blowpipe) to stay on the Race Car Patrol.

    I'd like to see them all get unique sculpts to a certain degree (at least the ones who were never redecoed) with bases, stations, transports and the like. Hell, even bring the six teams back.

    I picked this beautiful set up recently:

    That's the UK release of the Universe Devastator from 2004 on Energon cards.

    I'd really love a CW Devastator repainted in the Sixbuilder colors, honestly.

    Shockwave was used as a prop on the set of Aliens. We now now Ecto-1 in Ghostbusters was an Autobot in Disguise.

    Stakeout and Swindler also auditioned for the Robocop and Back to the Future movies respectively...

    "So you auditioned for the lead role in a movie about a robotic law enforcement officer and you ended up playing his car?"
    "Shut up!"

    "Look guys, I love sports and games. Playing them and making bets. But my spy cassette sense is tingling. You're called Swindler and he's named after the game Blackjack!"

    "So you're me from 30 years in the future? I don't know if I'm ready to believe in time travel..."

    "Who the Hell are you calling Wheelie?"

    Powertrain and Highjump are the newest additions to my Siege Micromasters.

    I like the idea of the Siege Micromasters becoming weapons for bigger characters. The execution, however, only really works for the sword Micromasters.

    Just like some of you here, the Micromasters have been harassing Trypticon. Poor Roadhandler got eaten for his troubles. And Skyhopper also got eaten.
