Greatshot as in the repaint and slight remold of sixshot for Victory (or was it Zone?)?
That would be cool, but very expensive

who or what is lightspeed?




As for me: top of the want list - Star Convoy, G2 hero optimus, machine wars optimus, Victory Leo. Big Powered.

Greatshot's not actually that expensive, if you know what you're doing. I've been quoted cheaper than my Star Saber cost in the past.

Lightspeed is one of Computron's legs. I bought a supposedly complete Computron nearly three years ago, but it came with two Nosecones and the seller never answered my emails. I've never found a Lightspeed I was happy with.

Oh he's the motorbike thing right?

Oh and where can you find a Greatshot for decent.
Could you perhaps PM me with a good place to look for stuff like that?

Nope, Lightspeed's the car - Afterburner is the bike.

It's not a case of looking in one particular place. It's just knowing the right people to talk to (sellers are people too, remember) and shopping around. Watch eBay over a prolonged period of time, rather than snatching at stuff. Be patient and prepared to let things go... everything comes around a lot more often than people think.

Good Friend Picked it up in Toronto's China town from a Japanese store

it was about $100 Canadian plus shipping (I have seen it, but he hasn't sent it yet, as he's a lazy git.)


it's the old box and is horribly damaged and sunfaded. But it's still sealed and I'm really hoping the toy's in good shape

I just got the 6 new clear RiD spychangers. Had to get them from BBTS, thanks to my friendly neighborhood scalper, but I've got them now, at least. Before that it was White Berserker Sixwing, who's nifty.

You really don't have any luck with scalpers do you?

Well, it's gotta be that same guy who cleared out the place a couple weeks ago. I figured I can't beat him, so BBTS was my only option. The guys are cool, but I just have way, way too many spychangers now.

Of course, Cliffy will jump all over me for that last statement, I predict...

Heheheh, I have all of the US ones now. I was tempted to go for the Japanese 12-per-box ones, but I'd have to be hunting down all of those chases if I did that, so I thought better of it. Besides, how many of the same 6 moulds do I really need? Of course, that question comes from the guy who has 6 different versions of the G1 Sideswipe mould, so don't answer that...

Well when it Finially arrives, Big Convoy.

But until then I got the macaross vf with super armor that bandai re-released that is the same mold as G1 jetfire.

it truly is badass to have jetfire back even though he is a different color.
 

Nifty!

Really considering a big order from BBTS - Big Convoy, Gigastorm, Chrome Bluestreak, Hot Rod and Rodimus Prime.

Swoop, which I'm very happy about, presuming it arrives okay. Not the greatest mould ever, but completing a set of Dinobots, in whatever condition, has been a personal goal for a while.

What do I want? Battle Ravage (on a whim) and MOTU Evil Lyn & Teela, to balance out Skeletor & He-Man. I'd also quite like an Armada Wheeljack, although lots more if it was in a colour scheme which didn't suck, on reflection...

Maybe an Alternators Smokescreen (US version) although I'd be interested to see if TRU in the UK have any interest whatsoever in picking them up first. My local one has a lot of reissue stuff now.
