    Oooo! That Soundwave! Was it from a seller with more stock, or just a one-of? I'd like one of those!

    I got it (used) from a Spanish Craigslist-like website. I haven't been able to dig up any info on it's origins.

    Thoughts on the KBB MP21+? Looks like a great figure for the price and might scale great with my TE-01 and IT-01.

    It's great if you have a place for an OS MP BB. Build quality is just fine.

    Looks like this BB is scaled to that 12" MPP10 and not the standard 9" versions. ) : Any recommendations for a nice BB that will scale nicely with my TE-01?

    Scrolling through the pics I thought to myself, ‘finally a shipment he has gotten that didn’t have items from sirtoys that snipped the last in stock figure(s) I too was interested in.’
    ...and then I see that custom chief fire...

    :drool: :jawdropper: :drool: 
    Oh well, thanks for sharing the pics throughout the years. Just reminds me I might never be ‘done’ considering all of the obscure figures I eventually see that strike a chord of interest. On an aside, I don’t think any of the shipments I’ve gotten from sirtoys over the last couple of years were NOT of that large box with a ‘lid’ of/over a large box variety...
    (on hold and shipping at max capacity for the win!... just not as much win you seem to get:lol ) ;)

    Feel free to peruse the recent pol's; I'd hate to fall behind in your eyes? :lol

    I think there's only 4 of us that compete vigorously for 1-offs?

    A long time ago, Paul said something to the effect of "... glad there are those out there to buy these and continue the collecting of KO transformers that will most likely never see another run - most get made only for the local Chinese market, and once broken or tired of, they simply recycle them with other recyclables, and dissapear from existance... "

    Not a true quote from him, but it's my take on his wise words from years ago.

    I KOllect, therefore I am... ;)

    The new pics of Siege Astrotrain makes me hope for a Oversized version. He really could use it.
    I want big choo-choo.

    I'm waiting for a KO of the recent regular film version, which line to be better than the MP version.

    I can't remember the name of the line, but the recent "film accurate" figures released as regular figures

    Oh studio series? I would hardly call that one accurate given it just re-uses the Rotf chest... and apparently skeleton of Rotf megs.... the MPM is a MP for a reason.
