    I've had good luck with ebay. Either looking for specific minicons or just grabbing lots

    When I started last April, I had forgotten about most of my old collection. so I used this as my checklist:

    This update is from last December, so that's around 8 months in.
    At the time I had even obscured the Classic minicon molds, because I had no hope of ever finding Dragoyell.

    @rikkomba had those as well and loved them. I used SG Starscream as Ramjet with the C Hasbro Starscream as Thrust, so I had Coneheads.

    That actually recreated my G1 seeker set for most of G1: Starscream and the Coneheads -- that is, until TC and SW were released locally through Mexican import in 1990 or so.

    Currently I only have the red Hasbro Starscream left. Don't really know what to do with it, but I love the look of it too much to sell.

    Energon Victory Leo Project Update: the lion itself is almost finished, but I haven't yet decided if I'm going to give him the usual guns+wings backpack yet. Once the lion head gets in the mail and I have it installed I'll post WIP pics

    I ended up getting a bunch of Unicron Trilogy figures. I’m almost finished with all the major characters from Armada. Just need Unicron and that Armada Megatron from Fanshobby. I was also able to hunt down a Galaxy Force Starscream which I am very excited about owning again since I sold my previous copy a few years ago. I also got Land Bullet (Crumplezone) for 30 dollars brand new.

    As for Energon/Superlink figures I got Bruticus Maximus, Builderon, Laserwave, Sixshot, Landmine, Megatron, Scorponok, Shockfleet and Sprung. Some of the best figures from the line IMO. I really want Omega Supreme as well but I’m going to focus on getting Unicron first as far as the big bois go.

    I also purchased some Transformers Universe (2003-04) figures as well such as that Tankor and Obsidian two pack that I used to have when I was a child. I also got Ramjet, Skywarp and Nemesis Prime. I’m going to display Ramjet and Nemesis Prime with Micron Legend Double Face and Unicron when I have the room. I’ve always been a fan of Unicron and his heralds.

    The Starscream who was able to defeat 11 Autobots and fight Primus himself.

    Man, I love this figure. The Unicron Trilogy has become my favourite series to collect.

    Got Armada Wheeljack and Energon Rodimus as part of a lot. None of them came with accessories, but don't really care for them. Not really interested in Wheeljack... thought his name was Sideways aha Never had this guy before and I'll probably sell this guy.

    Got to put these two together again. Can't settle on a look for the two combined. I think I had a good one a long time ago.

    Sideways was the purple and yellow motorcycle with two minicon headmasters. This guy looks a lot like Sideswipe but Armada Side Swipe was a different character entirely

    Yea, that was a source of angst/frustration and table flipping and that all amplified when that mold was never repainted. In hindsight, nothing of value was lost but at the time . . .

    I’ve always wanted every version of the Backhoe mold, starting with Panhandler.
