    Yea I seen some of those this morning when I checked again. the other day there weren't any other than that one Omegatron, weird how they show up in spurts like that. I looked at that one you mentioned, and couldn't see any of the clips either, so I just considered it incomplete because he says he had no idea if it's complete iirc.

    Thanks for the input, I was gonna put 350 on each of them, but was worried that it might be out of the ball park. I feel a bit more comfortable with that number now.

    Yea he's always got some of the most off the wall KO's, he's my go to guy when I have a question about a vintage KO.

    except the ams don't transform ;)  they're more like merchandise to me than part of the toy line. I also skipped the TM versions of those guys, that's why i still have one left to get.

    Did some stand in work on my Blue Bacchus, painted up an inner bot from a Crossblades. Have a set of casted parts on the way too, so he'll be "complete" until i find a nice MIB one or loose complete

    i however, count every transformer, as a transformer, regardless of whether it transforms or not, or if i like it or not. lol to me they are ALL transformers. including all the bumblebee repaints.

    Ah, I knew it would be something I should have known :p 

    I don't have my G1 Pipes on hand for a direct comparison, but I don't believe the KO is oversize.

    Hey guys. I'm not really a vintage collector (stick to MP and some 3P) but I was recently given a bag of G1 TFs from an old buddy. There are a couple pretenders in there that are in need of a cleaning. Should I be using mild dish soap for exo- shell parts? They have a stick residue on them from years of storage. Thanks!
