    Very nice Cromagnus. I love Grandus' box art as well. I just wish the actual figure wasn't such a brick! I think in an AFA case is the perfect way to enjoy him because of that.

    JC Penneys, wow. These Transformers that are from department stores like this are as much a testimony to the decline of those high end retail stores as they are gems to the collectors. I'd keep that as is Bo Bi but its your call. You may not see the box art but you can find another Trypticon box to display next to it.

    That Jazz is mindblowing. What a thing to have preserved this way. Beautiful ROck, total admiration for that one.

    Will someone please hurry up and find the bloody Sears Insecticon 3-pack already? :) 

    All the best
