    Of course, there's still a way yet to get the G2 concept cast:

    We need that orange Jazz and G2 Megs.

    Ok I want one. Not a G2 guy but I do love Mirage and heartfelt 80’s Izod call backs. Every time I look at him I can hear Duran Duran. Hopefully will show up on either Toy Dojo or PSX.

    True enough. Can't be any worse than this Sphinx though being, what, eight castings in now?

    No doubt. Too bad the KO companies never got creative with the molds.

    What the fuck where they thinking with g2. I look back at it now with nostalgia for the time period and smile. Why at the time those design choices where made I’ll never understand

    Weirdly comes across as more "test shot" than "G2 homage," though the croc detailing is pretty radly terriblawesome.

    This one hit me right in the childhoods. Have fond memories of color change hot wheels for reasons I can't really recall. They're just there.

    Plus, like Mirage, it looks like you can eat it.

    I think it's an homage to the redeco of G1 Ratchet in the 2007 Transformers movie deco

    I mean it’s technically both. Given how G2 Mirage was never released.
    Wait when was that confirmed?

    I\'ll be attending my first TFcon, unfortunately only on Saturday.  How hard is it to score the exclusives at the show?  I tried to get the g2 jazz online the other year, which didn\'t work out.  Any tips or secrets?

    That could be the ugliest TF I've ever seen, even by neon G2 standards.
