    Same story with my G1 Megatron, the gun arm snapped off around the screw about 10 time or more as a kid. It finally held and is still holding to this day, but the two arms don't align quite right in gun mode. I still remember one Botcon I went to, a guy I was hanging out with literally build himself a full G1 Megatron robot by searching the junk bins in the dealers room.

    So how rare are Dinobots with 1984 box art?

    Something else I noticed, they have the dark grey insert card (similar to cars) and the 84 product catalog.

    Somewhat rare but you still see a decent amount of them. They will sometimes have the light grey inserts as well.

    Cool, I noticed they came from a different asst # (5770 vs. 5771) that also didnt have Swoop.

    The UK never got Swoop, not sure if that could explain the assortment number?
