    The insecticons are among my favorites from G1. I had them as a child and I have very fond memories of them. Now they swarm my Decepticon display. I have twelve in total...

    These don't look like much, but they were quite hard to come by:

    Who are those guys? Particularly the one on the right? He's in Regeneration 80.5, and I couldn't identify him.

    ya man :) 

    The green Cindersaur repaint is D-319 Guzzle, and the red Sparkstalker is D-321 Jabile. Both from Masterforce.

    The US Flamefeather and the Japanese D-320 Sizzle are identical from what I gathered.

    Found this at a comic store today. It's vintage. Not sure if it's pre-transformers, or a KO. Either way, it's a G1 mold and it's cool.

    I couldn't have said it any better. Starscream has ALWAYS been my favorite. I've just started re-collecting and he was first on my hit list. He was actually the third that I bought though because I got outbid on the first one I tried for. I remember wanting him SO bad as a kid and having a hell of a time finding one. I finally did find one at KMart and told my mom. I ended up getting him for my birthday or Christmas. Always hard for me to remember since they are only four days apart. His second long missile has a broken end so I ordered a new one.

    Random G1 Megatron question


    With reissues, I've had no problem turning his barrel upwards to resemble his TV show appearance. however, I can't seem to do that with my original.:crazy: 

    When I try, it just seems like it's going to break so I stop.

    Those look great together.

    I really should see about getting a G1 Megatron.

    Obviously don't force it if it won't go. Its fiddly for both my figures.
