    Awesome! I may need to track this down.

    Awkward!

    In anticipation of 'Earthrise', and in the vain hope that Siege wave 5 might arrive with me before Xmas, I got out some of the old guys for a play.

    Wheeljack remains an utterly barmy, but still quite enchanting example of Diaclone era TF's. I'd long since assumed he was one of the very early guys, up there with Sunstreaker and Ironhide/Ratchet, due to his 'primitive' look and distinctly un-anthropomorphic 'bot mode. Imagine my surprise when I realised that the molds that wound up as Skids, the Datsun bros, Hound, Mirage, and Sideswipe all came first!

    I've still gotta get SW and the tapes. Still gotta get Screamer, too.

    This Hoist, with all his scars, has something very artistic, I like it so much. Sometimes a scarred vintage transformers has more class and character than a minty one.

    I totally agree with you. There's a lot of character in that wear and tear!

    I feel that way about the older members of my collection, with their missing labels and other wear and tear. My original quartet of Huffer, Warpath, Twin Twist, and Prime are battle-hardened soldiers.

    I'm much more comfortable playing with a recent reissue than an original or a past reissue due to how plastic ages over the years.

    Galvatron!!!...."The best there was, the best there is....the best there ever will be!"
    He is one of my absolute favorites, loved his G1 persona from both movie and cartoon series. Love his toy, he is only second to G1 Megatron as the best!
