    Curious. Next year is the 25th Anniversary of Beast Wars. Hasbro already has plans. You think Takara will have plans for an awesome BW MP?

    She’ll work for you. You just have to offer her that corner office and a great benefits package at competitive rates.

    Well, she does have a great resume so I have no qualms over her skills. Just not sure I can pay her the salary she deserves. Will be way more than Ultra Magnus though. Ugh, that guy, any time I ask him to do something he tells me he can't deal with it right now.

    I’ve been slightly more interested in her cause of other people’s in hand pics.

    I think Takara photography just doesn’t do it for me sometimes.

    That’s a great display! I hope to do something similar one day but with the original G1 toys for the vehicle modes. Of course this won’t be for at least 13 years, so for now it’s vicarious living! :)

    TCracker was always able to do what Takara couldn't. He could make a Masterpiece look like a glass of cold water in the middle of the hottest desert. Attached to an airplane to take you back to civilization after you drank the water.

    Got Spinout from Pulse today and it felt like a momentous occasion. A MP of the first Transformer is a really big deal. As a child I only had a few of the Autobot cars and Sunstreaker wasn't one of them. Like a lot of us, when I finished college and got my first job around the year 2000, ebay suddenly gave a path to getting all the toys you wanted as a kid and I had the disposable income to spend on them. After collecting all the G1 carbots I learned about Diaclone and Ehobby and my mind was blown. You mean there are even more of these I can collect? Well that started down a rabbit hole. I have a modest Diaclone/Diakron collection and got several of the ehobby reissues. The original Red Sunstreaker was always a favorite only eclipsed by the Police version, aka Cordon. How crazy is it that these figures now have official Transformers names after so many years? Well anyway... I took way more pictures than usual of these guys and then started pulling out other the other Diaclone MP homages and well... here we go. (I'm just really excited about this figure!)

    Spinout and the OG:

    All the Spinouts, Sunstreakers and Cordons:

    MP Diaclone Homages:
    IMG_E8098.JPG

    And with their namesakes. Road Rage, Delta Magnus, Cordon and Spinout are the vintage figures, Tiger Tracks, Clampdown, and Bluestreak are the ehobby reissues and Loudpedal is the Lucky Draw reissue (He almost never gets out of his box, special occasion indeed, also once again, how crazy is it that they have names now?) Blue Bluestreak and Exhaust had to step out of this shot as I do not have OG versions of them. Someday maybe.
