    So I bought this Mechtec KO Ironhide for $20, bad purchase but this is how he looks with the others:

    And the collection grows. Can't wait for blue G2 and comic decos of the SS86 mold! Also got Planet X Cacus on my radar for eventual addition...

    Not the biggest set for comparison but to be fair I only ever thought I would have the SS86 Ratchet.

    I was only after one figure from each mould but it got confusing quickly and now I know I am missing a Last Knight bee… any others I am missing?

    Hey remember that time Ironhide took a placement on a Klingon Bird of Prey and got his own Bat’Leth? Yeah me either.

    Nice they even have some Insecticon spray!

    I do also love the Silverstreak inclusions.

    I did have some genuine concerns about mixing them up so I kept them on their display bases.

    Okay I’m going to ask you because you seem to love Rodimus. Would you consider getting any of those again if they released them in Pink? Is it something that many Rodimus fan actively want?

    Well I do enjoy the evil versions, which have purple/darker pink coloring, and MMC Calidus Asterisk has some pastel coloring, and I would like to get that one sometime. I’d buy it why not?

    Also, when did SS86 Hot Rod get so expensive? Wasn’t he showing up at Burlington recently for $12 or so? Why is he now $70 average on eBay?

    The local toy shop I went to yesterday had him for $50, but Kingdom Commander Rodimus for $70, so I bought that instead.

    Nice shot. That one second to the left with the red feet. is that the Thunder Machine Soundwave? If I may ask, how's the backpack? After Megatron and Bumblebee's horrendous kibble issues I passed on Soundwave.

    Yeah, it’s the Thunder Machine one

    The kibble’s alright. The entire backpack is on a hinge due to the transformation, so it can easily be clipped on and off. The toy in general is definitely the best of the three so far lol
