    G1 upgraded? I picked up the Squeezeplay Titanmaster at the weekend and after watching Thew's Top 10 of 2018, I tried it on the G1 body.

    It does rest reasonably on it and looks well I think...

    I haven’t displayed this guy in a while. Dusty, but still functional.

    That G1 Soundwave has me pumped. Now I don't have to restore the floppy one I have.

    I believe he's one of those Walmart Exclusives. Price and release are to be confirmed.

    I hope he's cheap, but odds are against it. A G1 Soundwave is one of my grails.

    Most of us assume $50 to $70. But what am I saying? In Canada, it could be a lot more.

    But here's what we know so far.

    G1 Soundwave’s reissue revealed

    Somehow I feel Carbots are rarely going to be reissued due to licensing.

    I put together a list of all the G1 stuff I am going to have in my collection. Then unfortunately, due to multiple factors that's probably it for my collection. 20190102_214353.jpg

    Opened up the bag my original figures are kept in. These are just few a of them and they are in the state I left them in back when I was a kid in the 80s though the dust is from the accumulated years of neglect. IMG_20190103_175644.jpg IMG_20190103_175956.jpg IMG_20190103_180153.jpg IMG_20190103_180713.jpg IMG_20190103_180642.jpg IMG_20190103_180840.jpg I remember I got Blitzwing for my birthday in either 84 or 85. I remember spying beforehand and finding him in the box hidden away in my parents wardrobe. I knew he was a triple changer and afterwards when I asked my mum if she had gotten me any Transformers for my birthday she said she might have got some. I was worried that she didn't know what a triple changer was and that she might have thought there were 3 robots in the one box instead of it being 1 robot that changes into 3 things. I wanted more than 1 for my birthday so, worried about my mums ability to understand Transformers I pestered her until she gave in and showed me what she had got me which was about 4 different transformers including Hound (pictured) and Prowl. I didn't know it then but she had also got me Optimus Prime. Up to this point I only had Soundwave. Incredible times. Great fun and great memories.

    PS notice the terrible application of the decals hehe.

    *edit for grammar

    Great find! Now you have to clean them up and put some reprolabels on them and restore their full beauty :)
