    Not sure about that. Masterpiece don't always improve things unfortunately. What do you guys think?

    Great pics!

    How is Camshaft's roof? I find that the way in which they attached his canon often causes stressmarks.

    The family and I had to make an impromptu trip back to Georgia last weekend (I won't depress myself and everybody else with why, suffice it to say cancer can kiss my fat, hairy, shit-covered ass) and I'm still in the process of moving my collection to my new house (almost a year later), so I took a box o' goodies. You might see a KO Darkwing and a couple of Argentinian minibots (which are MOSC, just can't tell in the pic). What could be underneath? More pix this weekend...

    Where in the world can you find Taiwanese Liokaiser knockoffs? I have only ever found those awful ones with the Doubledealer arm.

    (please don't say "Taiwan"!)

    Fellow G1 Lovers, today it is a happy but also a sad day.

    I finaly found my Arcforce!With some minor repair work he is as good as new.

    I also found my G1 Huffer. I thought that toy had broken hinges on his head but rejoice!I was wrong. The hinges had somehow been pried off and I reatached them....And then I broke them.....A 30year old toy that survived my childhood, didnt survive my adaulthood...It is a sad day indeed.

    ...if it's any consolation, plastic grows more fragile with age: mightn't've been your fault...

    I can fix it. The only problem is that I possibly wont find the same shade of orange. Better would have been to find a junker and replace the damn thing, but I doubt it.
    Damn bot though. I have so many fond memmories of it as a child. I hated him in the cartoon but it was such a fun toy.

    ...i keep ahold of all my originals, beaten-up-and-repaired though they may be, despite having long-since acquired cleaner duplicates for my collection: they earned their wear-and-tear...

    2014 or 2015, not long ago, thanks to the warehouse find, he's pretty worthless.
    Transformations and fun, no. Accuracy and engineering, yes. The MPs are amazingly well designed. But they lack the charm of the G1s. The only one past mp-10 I would say isn't a massive improvement on the original is Tracks imo.

    They're Takara exclusive giftsets from around the time the TF movie came out in the West, 1986. They are saying goodbye to the two biggest characters in Transformers as they died/were replaced in the movie...even though the movie didn't get shown in Japan until years later.

    Goodbye Megatron features Starscream as well, the Megatron is grey plastic version with red inner legs.

    Goodbye Convoy features Mirage and Red Alert, the Prime has blue plastic windows on the cab and the comman centre, so at the time both were fresh new variants on a theme. They both also come with a killer poster that's almost more desirable than the sets themselves :lol .

    All the best
