    Only colors! The set is the same but they swapped out som colors. Seeing this I might just do the same. I wish reprolabels still did custom pieces and on off prints :(

    Been watching Masterforce. Recently saw God Ginrai do the "Fire Guts" move on Overlord. This is an awesome recolor of my favorite Optimus Prime toy, I hope I can find him at a good price as well. :)

    the ultimate multi changers

    hallo people of earth, cybertron, chaar, athenia, and beyond i am here to talk to you about the 2 ultimate multi changers trypticon and sixshot the first time i saw them trypticon 6 years ago and sixshot 1 years ago i have been searching for them however due to their ridicoulously high prices they have remained elusive but enougth about that the reason im here is to talk about how awsome they are first trypticon

    i mean who doesnt love a t-rex, a battle station, and a city then even better he's all 3 rolled into one with a car robot and a tank witch plus he walks rolls has light up functions and has spinning radar dishes witch is why trypticon (dinozaurer) is the cream of the crop

    and now sixshot

    first of all hes commander of every decepticon on earth including cyclonus witch means hes commander of every decepicon on chaar then if that was not cool enough he has seven modes 7

    he's a
    robot
    rocket car
    raming tank
    gun
    jet
    winged wolf
    and 5 of the six rolled into 1

    and then just to proove hes the coolest decepticon hes also a ninja (hiya) thus giving sixshot a little play value for everyone and hes huge

    witch is why i think sixshot and trypticon are the ultimate multi changers

    I remember my neighbor across the street had Trypticon when we were kids and I was so envious of him. He was definitely a cool Transformer back in the day. Then again, I had the USS Flagg as a kid, so I shouldn't complain to much. :D

    Quick question, anyone know a good method of straightening out Vortex's helicopter blades? Mine seem a bit droopy.

    Perhaps heating the Vortex blades up with hot water will release some of the stress in the plastic pulling them down. It'll make it easier to reposition them.
