    Looks amazing dude.

    Also, thanks for the Shockwave clarification.



    Loving that Springer too, look lovely.

    Yeah, those little pegs on the cannon never did make sense! Megatron has a minion!

    That has got to be the cleanest Springer box I've ever seen.

    That's a nice Springer Kevin. Did you pick that up from the same place as Morgan? They look identical.

    Yup. Me, Morgan, and another collector I know picked up some of these from our main plastic crack supplier. I'm sure you know who I'm talking about. ;)  They all came from the same case (case-fresh). Despite all of them being practically identical, they came back with different grades. Go figure.

    Fantastic! You have just given me a reason to buy a G1 Megatron. :)  I've never liked the mould, but this makes the figure a lot more interesting.

    It's the first one. The first running change was a "Hot Rod's" sticker placed over it and then the correction came in the third run. As a kid, it's the one I remember having, as I thought "Hey, this isn't right!" until the box was tossed after I cut the specs and points from it.

    Condition is everything, of course. Box flap/no box flap, box wear, etc. etc. $25-30 each is the typical rate, generally speaking. I'd highly recommend jumping over to Transformerland.com and looking how Matt lists and prices things.

    They are my photos, and that is an official mode from when this was a Microchange toy, the peg on the stock part even pegs into the microman figures back, it was designed for it, and thankfully they never changed it when it became Megatron.

    Probably easier to just leave it rather than retool the mold. I have a blue MM guy set up just like that.

    I'll start this off with my usual sorry for the crappy photo. But I wanted to share anyways. I picked up Dirge. Now I just need a Ramjet and my seekers are complete. I suppose i could add a scourge as well. I need to get out some lighter fluid and remove those stickers from Dirges poor face lol.

    I wonder how much would be a reasonable price for a Joustra battle convoy that is in the following condition (I'm trying to perhaps buy this from a french collector)
    Trailer has stickers intact,the door seems to be okay,exept the mechanism might be broken. (The door is not attached to the truck in the picture i got)
    The truck is in great condition
    Fists and gun are missing and roller is broken and pretty much every missile/wheel/whatnot is missing
    The laser gun thing has missing windshield.
