This my latest.
Elita doesn't tower over Classics OP as much as I thought which is why I didn't mind grabbing her.
Don't really feel like arguing about who re-mold or re-tooled what but the Engineering speaks for itself!
POTP Elita-1 & Hun-grrrr
Best for last!
(well my current favorite picks anyway)
Elita might need Moonracer about now......
POTP Cloudburst which I'll be repurposing as Phoenix for my Masterforce collection.
Picked up the PotP's Evolution Prime duo at my local Toys R' Us earlier today. I was on the fence abouting getting them, but I dunno, they looked cool enough in person to convince me. Besides, they only had 2 of each, so I figured if I don't grab 'em now, I might not ever see them again. And I already told myself that I wouldn't bother with ordering them online.
I bought Power of the Primes Leader class Optimus Prime yesterday, I also found Rodimus Unicronus
Finally found something new!
Yesterday's arrivals! (I was too sick to post 'em up yesterday- I couldn't even transform them til this afternoon)

@Ottertron ; I have always been wondering about the QC on those iGear sharks.
How do you think they feel in hand?
Also, if possible, do you think they were worth the price you paid?
I have seen some sales listings for far more than i thought they were worth and always wondered if the juice was worth the squeeze.
Thanks in advance for any info.
The main issues with them are the extreme looseness of the shoulder pauldrons and the way you have to fold the feet to bring the back half together, but as far as QC goes, pauldrons aside, I don't have any concerns.
I paid €75 euros for mine because apparently 'there is a hole in the box', but, yeah, I tend to see them way overpriced - same as Unique Toys Sharkies - but in all honesty, as much as I like them, they are not worth the prices being asked for them.
At most they're worth $100 or so.
Thanks for the info!
Glad to hear they are not as bad as the impression i got of them initially.
I believe your assessment of price versus value for these, and the UT versions, is on point.
So, unless I see them at a steep discount, i probably won't bite; pun intended...
Looks like i will be sticking with my legion of HasTak Gnaws I have been slowly building for the past year plus.
Thanks again for the heads up !
Hun-Gurrr, Elita-1 and friends
oh god I need that Terrorcon
Seems like my cassette MP frenzy is still holding. I just ordered one of those KO Ratbats.
Finally got the 6yo a Roddy, he, I and our 2 YO all love it in all modes. If you think the shoulders are wonky just Transform him with the inner bot arms up over the thigh bars and it looks great but I think I actually prefer it the original way for playing, maybe the fan mode for display because it costs you just a hair of articulation. Like a couple of major reviewers have said and a few people on here though the inner bot actually makes a Small Voyager/ big Deluxe Rodimus and then the combined mode is Power master Rodimus so between this things various modes and TR Hot Rod I think we may have the character covered exactly as well and in a similar way to the way we play with our Various Optimus Primes.
So I asked to get TR Galvatron, CW Armada Leader Megatron and the Takara LG Megatron to compliment our TR Voyager Megatron. We will be Megatroned up! Like OP and RP we will be able to play him any way we want original bot, Powered up Leader class Armada version, dead and reformatted to Galvatron then brought back to life all his own so both exist together and finally alternate Megaplex transtector in the form the Purple Takara TR Voyager. It is going to RULE
