    I think I'm going to go with right way up with faction logos except with that light blue Starscream.

    Stickered up a couple of Dirges. One for me the rest to sell. (I have loads for some reason). The one on the right is the 2004 reissue with white wing stickers, possibly factory? The other one is the Platinum reissue with silver backed wing stickers. I removed the horrible CE stamps with isopropyl ages ago.

    Need to clean up my Ramjet and Thrust. Had them for close to 30 years but they really need a huge clean up and restickering. Ramjet might just need replacing completely but I'll try and fix this as they're both genuine vintage G1.

    @barry,
    Thanks for that, I've seen a couple of comparison pics of the Alex Ross Iron Man with the new figure but not Thor so wasn't sure how accurate it was.

    First picture on the right is Grotesque. I found out because the assortment number (5966) is Grotesques assortment number! I'd check them all for you but I have to get ready for training and I'm on my phone. Shitty way to do research.

    in the 80's my family went to Scarborough, there was a school sale at which I bought Skywarp, menasor, slag and sludge for a steal, no weapons of course. still have them all.

    I nearly got a defensor but a lady said her son just needed two of them so I passed him over and didn't buy the other 3 as he was not complete in my eyes.

    edit: I forgot I got a blitzwing without a turret too.

    been tormenting me for a while this.

    I think I like them upside down in robot mode.

    all down to personal opinion, a bit like the robot cassettes debate.

    I think that's been conclusively settled with Sunbow and Hasbro internal documents, but honestly it doesn't matter.

    Weird how Star Wars fans can get over the 4-LOM / Zuckuss thing but Transformers guys still hang on to the cartoon like it's handed down from the mountain.

    The application isn't important as it is just a deck builder and checklist

    All the videos are also found here

    https://transformers.hasbro.com/en-gb/tradingcardgame/howtoplay

    Freedom fighter Optimus isn't bad and works alongside other autobots but OpBl is arguably the single strongest card there is,

    I just realised I mistyped Bumblebee it's Courageous Scout and Legendary Warrior from packs and Brave Warrior from the starter set.

    So you should have 2 different Bees at least, Legendary Warrior is the one to look for.

    Yeah let me know what you get, hope you get some cons soon some real unique ones in there.

    They extended Haslab Unicron to October 6th. Apparently someone REALLY wants this to get made.

    Its failed then, let's be fair. If you have to extend it then you've sort of broken the rules you set yourself.

    I hope it gets made because a lot of people love it, but 8,000 pieces and ignoring Europe was always gonna make it hard.

    4:LOM is blue, Zuckuss is red, animated Zuckuss is purple. Simple.

    Where's Dirge? Well I've got five of the buggers.

    I need to properly sort my stock.

    Going through and downsizing even further with my collection. Practically giving some away [gave away loads to be donated to Toyfu on TFNation].

    Weird how I find myself orienting to grabbing a few G1 figures as the "ideal" versions of those characters. This would have been unheard of for me 10 years ago, but nowadays I am just drawn to the simplicity and charm of these figures. They don't need to have 20 perfectly toleranced points of articulation or immaculate paint---and I am loving it.

    Will do full sales with pictures maybe within the weekend, but short list for now if people are interested...

    3rd party
    G2 Xtransbots Breakdown and Wildrider----GBP 100 for both, MIB. Wildrider has some paint chips in car mode :/
    Transformission Wildrider---GBP 40
    Transformission Motormaster---GBP 100

    Official, all lines

    Power of the Primes titanmasters---all the "pretender" ones with shells---GBP 35
    Power of the Primes Combiner Blastoff---MIB-----GBP 30
    Takara Legends Overlord---loose----GBP 35
    Titan Returns Quake---loose----GBP 8

    Prices don't include shipping, will probably list more during the weekend. Cheers :)

    Shame you missed the drunken seeker chat at tfn Dirge was designated the shit one. Mainly because the designers seemed to be running out of ideas. Let's give him shit coloured double wings.

    Haha. Yeah he does seem like the least popular. When I was hunting for Thundercracker back in the day I almost bought one which was actually a Dirge body with Thundercracker parts.

    Other weird one is Shrapnel. I had 6 of each of the Insecticons and they've all sold except for 3 Shrapnels.

    Even Thrust had a cool name, but I can't think of that word without thinking of Lord Flashheart.

    Dirge is mostly reissues marked Tomy, although one of each Conehead are dual Takara/Hasbro 1983 copy and one Thrust is just 1983 Takara, no hard nose cones no plastic wheels sadly.

    Some amazing bad stickering on these.

    Any suggestions to hunt down a g1 part?Looking for the Apex armour chest plate but I'm guessing it might be easier to design it myself and print it out?
