    One of my favourite G1 figures and my favourite Micromaster that I own(someday Countdown, someday), the mighty Erector!

    Alright, settle down. I said settle down, or it’s an hour detention and a letter home to all of your parents!

    I never really gave his name much thought back then, despite having as dirty a mind as any young male. Powerglide and Thrust were funnier in my mind(still are). I just loved his design and colour, plus the bad ass artillery mode. Add in the fact that his turret/crane works without the trailer and you have a figure that deserves attention for more than his admittedly hilarious name.

    Rising to the occasion, he overcomes stiff resistance and creams all members of the invading forces in a single stroke! E5B3168D-270D-4413-AD10-7122108288C6.jpeg

    I absolutely love G1 Insecticons. They're plentiful as vintage and reissues. The chrome, paint, diecast and uniformity when unworn make the G1 my favourites even now, beyond 3P and CHUG versions ever did. Their Ceji & Diaclone/Ehobby variants are extra special in my opinion.

    Grew up with European insecticons. When I bought a set from the US to complete mine or to replace some I thought I was sold a bootleg because the color of the translucent plastic is yellow across the pond. This was a time that this information was not widely available and I had to call a friend to help me do the research.

    During the time that E-Hobby were releasing Diaclone-based G1 reissue exclusives, we knew things were good for us as collectors but I don't think we knew how lucky we were to be getting the likes of Crosscut, Tigertrack etc. Seems unlikely we'd get this sort of thing again.

    I've never been one to buy a lot of the Transformers leader characters, almost always focusing on the more standard and smaller sized figures in every scale and era of collecting I have done - unless I went completist. However, the G1 reissue exclusives doing leaders in different colours was something I simply could not ever resist.

    I still vividly remember going to the toy aisle one day and seeing pegs of new, small Autobot cars and my eye immediately caught on the metallic gold VW. As soon as I read his bio and found out he was Bee rebuilt I nearly lost my mind. I think it was as the first time I’d seen the rubber Decoys as well. Needless to say he came home with me. Picked up Wideload, Freeway and Searchlight through school yard trades, but I didn’t get Chase and Rollbar until last year. Simple as they are I love these little brick bastards.

    I will need to swap my Euro Rollbar for a N.A. one someday. C74A3EBD-7148-475E-B6EF-67A189018C69.jpeg 493EAAB7-ABF8-40C7-A8FA-B9C6EBBFDE09.jpeg
