    I was looking to get titans return ones Topspin was plentiful and well priced but Twintwist was hard to get and more expensive than I could go for back then.
    I was lucky to pick up these 2 on eBay as a set for £35 years back and was reading a lot of idw at the time so the look really worked for me

    Slingshot. The first transformer I can vividly remember getting from TRU in the 80s.

    Can Doubledealer's chest shield peg into the slot of the radar port on Fortress Maximus chest? I want to see a pic of it with Knok installed if possible.

    The Titans Return Jumpstarters were an excellent addition to an already great lineup of rarely done characters.

    That's cool. Thanks for the pic. I'm going to do a Headmasters/Targetmaster/Powermaster combo along w/the TFCC Cerebros pretender shell for Fort Max.

    Not sure where is the best place to ask this, so I figured I'd just ask here: I have a G1 Galvatron that is in great condition, except for the stickers. I ordered and recently revieved a reprolabels kit for him, but the original stickers aren't wanting to come off too easily. Is there a safe and reliable way to remove old stickers with minimal damage?

    Goo Gone. Let it sit few a few minutes. Then just use something that will scrape it off.

    I use benzene to remove stickers. Moisten a piece of cloth, dab on the label, wipe off. All of the above are correct too.
