    I hate the figure, but I've always wanted a variation of that paint job, so I'd definitely buy it.

    Oh, totally. It's like they couldn't decide on a toy deco or toon deco so they tried to do both and it sucked.

    I've got the winnebago piece now and it's very well done, it fits and blends in almost perfectly. Shoulder pieces are on the way!

    Duuuude! I would buy the shit out of that re-deco!

    You know, it's funny... when I first started somewhat seriously collecting I was sooooo against repaints. Any figure I bought it HAD to be a new mold; if it was one I already had I would weigh it against the current one and if I liked the deco better I would buy it, BUT only to sell the other. Of course, I had started seriously collecting in the early 2000's, when Armada was the main line out.... I collected up until around the middle of 2006, 2007 or so, and was out of TF until CW started up. Now, I'm pretty much a completist... the only decos I don't have are the Botcon and TFCC stuff, simply due to the cost. I'm hopefully eventually going to go back and buy all of the CHUG stuff depending on price, but man.... just seeing this picture makes me think of how far I've come in my collector mindset.

    I've even got to the point where I'm doing customs (not really completed any yet otherwise I'd share for sure) of characters who fit a certain mold but haven't had a mass release in a while (trying to buy at least one or two extra of every character, just in case inspiration strikes).

    I realized just what I've become when I decided I wanted to get at LEAST four of each POTP dino in order to do 1) G1 colors 2) G2 colors and 3) both in each deco both combined and bot and/or dino mode

    Can someone repost the DCPI numbers? I’ve been through the last 20 pages and can’t find them.

    I feel like something with more Latin/Greek in would be a better fan name for Elita's combined mode.

    Elita ... Elita Omega, Elita Epsilon, Elita Quintus ... something like that.

    Has anyone else noticed Jazz's lack of light piping? The prototypes showed the back of his head to be transparent plastic but they painted it all over for the final release. Why did they do that?

    On the same topic, does anyone know a decent way to remove the paint from the back part of the head without damaging the transparent plastic so we can re-introduce the light piping?

    With this deco, the combiner would truly live up to the name "Volcanicus". #Magma #Lava #Volcano #Eruption
