    I prefer reissues anyway since it allows me to get a spanking new one that doesn't have the paint on the die cast parts all worn out.

    Unfortunately some of those old reissues - particularly the Takara ones - are really raking up in price. The trouble isn't so much finding them, but building up the will to actually pay for them :D

    Whichever one of you lousy good for nothing BEATNIKS managed to snag Cryotek's $100 encore megatron before my message reached him, a curse upon you. A JINX of unimaginable proportions! A thousand years of death! I hope you choke on that majestic mint encore megatron...

    I was 100% vintage in my goals at one point, but eventually I realized it’s still the same toy. And at this point, they’re both so old that I’m just glad to have decent copies. So my collection is reissues and vintage side by side.

    Damn, Wheeljack is so short.

    Can somebody post a picture of him standing next to Hound?

    IMG_6336.jpeg IMG_6337.jpeg IMG_6338.jpeg I took a few from slightly different angles to show the difference. I included Sunstreaker because he was in the original pic which prompted your request. I hope this helps!

    Decided to pick up one of those new Metrotitan KOs since I’ll never own a real one. I’m actually quite pleased! There are obviously differences, but he fits in great with Scorponok and Overlord.
