    I haven't found any direct comparison images, but based on what's out there it looks like the new Siege Shockwave (minus the add-ons) would scale well with G1 Megatron and G1 Optimus; and that's something I've always desired. G1 Shockwave – awesome toy that it is – is just too gigantic as a robot.

    Well your post really gave the kick I needed to finally start buying some of those cases. I bought one for Megatron, and I would have gotten one for Prime as well but they're out of him. Anyway, I'll have to post some pictures when I get a few more of them. They're a bit pricey so it could take me a minute haha.

    I've noticed just how many MOSC/MISB/MIB figures you have, have you ever posted images of your full collection? I'm sure many of us would love to see them. I know I would.

    I got mine from KB Toys back in '88 I believe and the cab was all unpainted with no plastic windshield for the cab. The UM head was also unpainted. and the wheels were all plastic.

    My guess is since it was a larger figure it didn't sell well enough for a lot of stores to restock it the second year it was released with all the changes.

    Unfortunately, it’s a little hard for me to post a group shot of all of them together at the moment since they are in different corners of my room. I’ll just leave this pic here. Everything is AFA graded and factory sealed.

    I’ve also been following Sixshot’s posts and he has one of the most impressive misb/mib collections I’ve ever seen.

    I just tried this with Hoist. It fits but not all the way. I have the Hasbro TRU reissue though.

    Does anyone know if Ultra Magnus original small missile will fit inside of the TRU reissue missle launcher version? I don't like the long missles.

    I have a question about a figure I bought today. At a vintage toy store I found a g1 bombshell. The figure is in great shape....almost too good so I don’t think it’s an original but more of a reissue. Doesn’t look like the stickers were ever applied either. When I opened his chest up I saw the Takara stamp. It I didn’t see any mention of Hasbro anywhere. Did I buy a KO and not realize it? 788714AC-7F98-48CE-B546-8A62BB7024E3.jpeg A6AFC3D6-1ACC-4C25-A999-F89996D52169.jpeg A918B1F2-B85D-4D57-80C7-D997BCFA85CA.jpeg

    AFA 80 Qualified (Unused) Metroplex. I actually prefer the poster box versions on these G1 boxes.
