    Hooligan is one of my favorite purchases since I started collecting again. Such a great combination of a unique deco, a high-quality figure, and a lot of nostalgia.

    I'd love to see a Generations Hooligan, but I can't really think of a good mold. My top contender is Classics Jetfire.

    We NEED a remold of Sgt. Kup as Electro. New hood with an engine block, new head, and replace the musket with a sword.

    I've got the G2 FoC Bruticus preordered. I'm very excited.

    ... out of boredom, I've decided to make a Classics G2 list. Please feel free to add.

    Autobots:
    Inferno
    RtS Prime
    RtS Jazz (with Reprolabels set)
    Volt (movie Hubcap w/ Reprolabels)
    Botcon Rapido
    Botcon Streetwise
    Botcon Pyro

    Decepticons:
    Any tank Megatron, but especially United Thunder Megatron, as well as the Legends version.
    Universe Skyfall
    TFCC Ramjet
    Botcon Breakdown
    Botcon Clench
    Botcon Cindersaur

    I also like to throw in any yellow and purple construction vehicles with the G2 crowd... PCC Sledge is an honorary G2 Constructicon.

    One thing I found interesting about the G2 Starscream I had is that he seems to be one of the only characters who didn't get the Radical 90's paintjob makeover.

    Unfortunately I can no longer provide any in-hand pics...:(

    Yeah, if anything his colors are more muted than the original.

    Then again, yellow and purple construction vehicles raise fewer eyebrows than lime green and purple ones.

    While it is clearly from the G2 era, I think it depends what country you are from if that Skydive is G2 or not.

    Badass!

    I also have G2 Devy. Love the more realistic yellow. Also have G2 Beachcomber and Seaspray and dig their vac-metal finishes. Adds some nice color to my G1 collection!

    One of these things is not like the other. If you're repurposing, you can have a hell of a lot more.

    My eyes, they hurt!

    G2 is G1 gone to a 80's Party, doing to much drugs and realizing they got painted in crazy ass late 80s colors!

    The color scheme on some of these guys is psychedelic.

    Just my brain, it felt right. There are only two neon spray paints available around here and that limited it a little, but I knew I wanted neon and I figure this size highlights would be better.
    And I'm a sucker for black repaints.

    I've said it before, and I'll say it again; that G2 Metroplex repaint is the shit!

    Anyways, I'm not sure if this counts, but here's my Neo G2 collection thus far. Still need to get Jazz (w/ Reprolabels), Pyro, and Breakdown. I already preordered my FOC G2 Bruticus from Amazon, but he won't be here until November...

    A friend of mine digging through his closet informed me he had a box o' TF goodies from his childhood he was going to be selling off, so I hurried over there to pick out anything interesting he might have. I have been particularly interested in picking up more Cyberjets as of late, and as luck would have it..

    [​IMG]

    Space Case! And I grabbed that Road Rocket too cause he actually looked better than I would have expected. This led to a Cyberjet spree including X-Gunner, Delta Seeker and three KO's a local toy shop had. But my HUNGER could NOT be sated! I required more G2 goodness! So's I headed to ebay and managed to snag this lot for a pretty decent price..

    [​IMG]

    Although Strafe came with the wrong missiles, I am extremely happy I snagged them both! But there is a problem... Skyjack was imprisoned. THIS CANNOT STAND! BE FREE MY FRIEND! FLY FREEEEEEEE!

    HE IS MINTY FRESH!

    I thought the Cyberjets were G1.5 or something.
