    There will be eventually - dump the gummy original and buy Nonnef's Upgrade kit including the backpack as well as a more OG.I. Joe-style chainsaw when GWorks lists it! :p

    Opened birddog. He's a lovely toy isn't he? Wonderful robot mode and his beast mode is a realistic chimera of wolf and eagle. The paint work on his wings are utterly sublime, i wish it went onto the middle section of them. And his wolf head can look up, open his mouth and howl. Oh yeah, welcome to the collection silverbolt. You sexy beast!

    There's not been much 'actual' G2 in Legacy, has there? I know we had that unreleased sub-line, but are Jhiaxus and Laser Prime* the only G2 toys that aren't just recolours? I know a lot of G2 was just recolours, but it still seems odd... 'Where's Megatron?' is what I'm basically saying.

    He is. I still haven't had my third-party 'press the big red button on his tummy and it plays his fanfare' upgrade yet, though...


    *Who seems to think he's from G1, judging by his faction symbol. Maybe they were unfamiliar with the character...

    Dammit, my fave Megatron shirt got eaten by moths. This displeases me. And Amazon are out of stock of my preferred size. This adds further to my displeasure.

    Fortunately it's on youtube. And hopefully a clean longer version will be here soon when the bw ost is released. But I am so smitten with this birddog. I just wanna cuddle him.

    Do we count the Toxitron collection of unproduced figure homages?

    Still want a proper G2 Megatron, one where the cannon is on his shoulder rather than his forearm

    Yes. They fall into the 'recolour' category, I'd suggest, and are more general homages to the G2 toy than new versions of it. :) 

    Isn't Road Rocket an Arcee retool? Can't remember. :) 

    Only in the 'recolour' camp. ;)

    Just checked RID velocitron scourge next to g2 prime. Just on the main figures themselves, excluding trailers, Prime has a lot more paint. A lot.

    I could tell some tolerances were way different but seeing them side by side...yeesh.

    Waiting on animated prime to be delivered.
