    Catching up with Newages random reissues, first time with their seeker. While I don't think I need the other two main guys, really am enjoying how smug this lil guy is.

    I have such a huge MP collection, I wish there was a "trade-down" program available to cut down the space I'm occupying at home.

    Sorry if this ain’t the right place for this but does anyone have any photos of NA’s Ark set with some G1 toys??? Preferably 1984 stuff.

    Yep, I think it'll be space that eventually forces my hand. I'll just end up shifting 70 per cent of my MPs and beng brutally selective with new MP additions.

    I just really hope NA makes it past the movie, or another company turns up to tackle that mid-to-late G1 era.

    I posted this pic a few months back in the legends appreciation thread, because this thread didn’t exist then. But here’s my Newage collection. I’ve gotten a figure or two since I took this but it basically still looks like this.

    My strategy is to have a full legends collection and then only splurge on MP or CHUG that really catches my eye. I'll get Triton, but I don't really care about Spindrift. Combiners kick ass though, so I'll get Ignis.

    Huffer/Pipes shipping out to retailers and a Slag tease? In the same day? The drought is finally over. I hope that we see more reveals soon and NA is able to finish the last few S1 Autobots this year since they've clearly been fast-tracking them...although I wouldn't say no to a surprise Scourge drop...

    With their upcoming Dotm Megatron, I was wondering if anyone has experience with their weathered figures? Like how durable is that paint?

    Good to hear! so it generally doesn't chip or rub off much if at all? Because a lot of companies have trouble with that for weathering, so I was curious what to expect for that megs.

    I personally haven’t experienced any rubbing or chipping. There is a lot of weathering going on the figure so it’s been applied quite liberally

    Scourge surely has to be on the way. I'm pretty keen for him.

    I can see Galvatron getting redone at some point also.

    I have the NA Constructions & Bumblebee & Cliffjumper. The paint holds up just fine.

    paint on my megatron has chipped alot, but it blends well with the plastic so not really that big of a deal imo.
