    Well, I am posting on a Transformers forum, so it's always possible I'm not quite in my right mind..

    Oh wonderful. First of all: Yellow Constructicons in G1! Secondly: I'm going to have to find another set of decoys now so I can paint them thanks to this picture. These look amazing!

    Wow, that is really amazing. I wonder if it was a one-off promo shot or something? I don't recall every seeing anything about painted decoys before.

    I don't think those are yellow. It's just a very pale green.

    Oh dear, I've accidentally started something.. My work here is done ;) 

    I suppose that photo is meant to look like a battle; but they actually look like they're mostly standing around having a chat.

    Very cool :) . I remember seeing a full set of custom painted ones being posted on ebay a few years ago, while I was hunting down the last few on my list. Do you remember that SQ7? I'm pretty sure I linked you to that auction back then. I wish I would have saved the pics :( 

    :lol  nice

    Megaracertron had a set he painted up. Unfortunately his pics of them no longer show in his collection thread. It's unfortunate because it looked very authentic.

    Very nice :)  Thanks!

    I see you left him a visitor message. Do you think you could ask him if he still has those pics? And yes, they did look authentic, he did a great job on them.

    I wished you'd saved those photos, too, as I only vaguely remember them.

    I haven't chatted with him in a couple years, so I'm not sure what his status is at this time. you could try sending him a PM and see if he responds.

    You'd probably like the display he had up with his G1 figures.

    Some really old pics...too bad I lost most of my G1 pics...eventually I'll find the time to make some more closeup pics of my G1s individually. Especially Fort Max, no one can get tired looking at him :p
