A Stomper 4x4. Just one. A used one. The trade was his idea. I couldn’t believe my luck, lol...
I think you got the better end of that deal!
Kickback is my personal favourite but they are all pretty great. They work best as a unit.
Shrapnel and Kickback were the first Insecticons that we bought when my brother and I moved from Virginia to Ohio in 1986. We loved the color scheme so that's why we bought them. Fun little toys. Month later my brother bought Bombshell. Nice having the complete set.
I agree. Each one has traits I favor. I like Kickback’s head the most of the three (those antennae kill me) and Bombshell’s bug mode the most of the three. I just find Shrapnel the most appealing overall.
That's fair. Kickback will always be my favourite as there's this amazing 70's sci-fi vibe to him. But they are all great.
I also get the privilege of posting the entry for day 49 - Hoist.
Day 50 was an excellent piece by @Sixo and I am sure he'll post it in here soon....
Day 51 was another from me and was in fact the final member of the regular Insecticon trio - Kickback.
Kickback might also derserve the award for G1’s coolest hands...
Kickback was my Insecticon of choice in 1985. To my eyes he was the most proportional. He had the biggest head, unobstructed by kibble, and the most rational body. Yep, I was a weird one, even back then...
Eh, Kickback is okay... Four Star's version is better though.
It looks in pain and like it needs putting out of its misery.
They definitely claw their way up the list...
For day 52 it's my turn again, and this time it's my all time favourite Transformers character - Powerglide.
Look closely at the jet mode picture and you may spot some dino cameos....
Doesn't Cosmos fly technically?
Yes? But I don't believe Cosmos is an A-10 Thunderbolt. It's also why I said: "largely"
There were also the Aerialbots, but they are coming later.
I don't consider the Aerialbots as minibots.
Neither do I. Actually, I am just working on the Cosmos entry now.
This will make my wife happy. Her favorite toy.
And I'm back in the game for Day 53, building up to the big guy himself...but for now it's SCAVENGER!
All the best
Day 54 is back to me, as I play catch up, and it's Beachcomber!
My wife is a geologist...I made sure she had a Beachcomber to stand on her desk...lol.
Day 57 is BONECRUSHER! Best Constructicon.
All the best
