    The new pieces add a lot - especially the mane and shoulder cannons makes him look really impressive.

    ----

    I wonder if there would be a positive respose to a G1 Reissue style pack of Car Robots Diaclone Super Tuned Police Car Lamborghini "Cordon" as a nice complement to the Masterpiece toy ? or if they wanted to do the same thing with any other colour that comes from Diaclone or Diakron too ?

    Thus making an entirely new character ? or thinking about it a bit more left field what would the reaction be for example if a grey version of Trailbreaker was made as a Deception "Off Road" ?

    Another idea might be a Hasbro version of Detritus or Sunstorm too in vintage packaging.

    Hey, I visited my local toy shop on the 23rd and they had a one of these there as well, the box and everything. I don't know if it's completely mint or not, but it wasn't really banged up or anything. Owner wanted 160 bucks for it.

    I'm not really into collecting most vintage G1 because of how brickish they are, but if that's someone grail in my area and they score it, then more power to them.

    My friend gave me this lunchbox as a Christmas gift. He also gave me some stickers.

    These stickers are difficult to photograph well.

    By any chance does that Snaptrap still have a pricetag on it? I finally found one Snaptrap photo with a legible pricetag on it, but Snaptrap has a paltry listing compared to other figures (I've been compiling the original prices on G1 figures from eBay photos).

    Even old lenticular stickers say RIR! LOL... but is that a *blue* Bluestreak car?

    I had a question about g1 Ultra Magnus.

    I’m in the US and I’m pretty sure the one I had as a kid had the all white cab, no blue paint on his face.... but I just saw online people are calling that the UK Ultra Magnus? I’m just trying to figure out how I wound up with that version then?

    The unpainted UM was more common in Europe, hence its being referred to as U.K. UM. I got mine in Germany and it was the unpainted one.

    IIRC, it was a running change in the US. The painted version was available first, then later shipments sometimes included the unpainted one.
    So, the bottom line is, it was available in the US, just not as common as in Europe.
