Best toy: Blitzwing

Was next to Trap Jaw (Masters of the Universe) my favorite toy.

Both a one-man(robot)-army

later on Overlord, but that was past the playing age.

As for looks, I always liked Scourge as a kid... don't know why, but I guess the blue-grey color and grim face expression.
Had great articulation for toys back then.
... and was a "fold out the robot inside" toy long before RiD

Let it go, wanker. You've already been ticked off for ignoring the rules elsewhere.

The favourite TF I own is Shockwave's Alternator, I think. It's such a sexy car and it still manages to look very reminiscant of Shockwave's G1 appearance. When I get the Jazz Mazda though... Swindle is great too, as is Silverstreak. Swindle's alt mode isn't as sex as Shockwave's though.

I think the best mini-sized TF just may be LOC Starscream - he's great.

If they play it right, Masterpiece Starscream could be the greatest TF ever made.

Default Alternators

I really like the Alternator line, if they weren't so exspensive then I would collect them for readily. I was going to purchase a Laserwave Alternator for Christmas last year, but decided against it, thinking it would be around for awhile yet. Heh, no chance of that however. I managed to pick up TWO OPTIMUS PRIMEs (the Dodge Pickup), I plan on giving one to my little bro, not too sure about the other one, as my MP Optimus kind of fills in a lot of space. The Alternators I do have is the Blue Tracks (The yellow one just wasn't pressing my buttons), Subaru Rally Paint of Smokescreen, The White Meister (aka Jazz) and a red Dodge Viper Autobot whose name elludes me at the moment.

takara any day. I love the black repaints. And you'll never be as villanous a Skywarp

I guess I am more partial to Hasbro, being in the US. Even though the best reissues are from Takara. I guess I have to add another favorite toy. Soundblaster Takara reissue.

Default In terms On Wanting A Toy...

I have found a picture of a G1 Transformer that I have now made my personal mission in life to find. I want it in a box as well. I don't really want the Diaclone version, I either want a direct re-issue, or a perfect condition G1 model (in a box if I can). This toy is, 'BROWNING'. His number is D-308, and is another gun Transformer like the original Megatron, only, it looks and Transforms better than the original Megatron! Infact, I'd like to find TWO of these Browning Decepticons, one to have as the original, and the other to modify into a decent looking Megatron! I want this toy! I want it BAD!

Here is what he looks like:

http://megatronofcybertron2.homestea...rowningmf.html

There is a picture of him from the cartoon, with box art, and transforming details and toy pictures below. I've found a few copies of him for sale about, one ebay store is selling him for over $700US (vomit bag at the ready), where as another has him for around $500US. Apparently he is rare (well duh), and goes for just a wee bit of money. Man I want him, I am quite prepared to say (just on sight) that this is the Transformer I want the most, I can barely begin to understand why myself, but there is something about him, I really want this G1 toy! I absolutely love the Megatron (was one of my favourites, even if his hips resemble a clothes horse), this one just seems to do what the original could not!

Denyer's Browning review

I saw the figure in a comic shop around here a few months ago and never bothered to ask the price. Now it's gone and I'll always wonder if I could have had a decent deal on it. :\

Default Browning... Oh Browning...

That review only makes me want him MORE. This is ridiculous, I've scoured the internet, and have not managed to find one single internet toy store that stocks the ehobby or diaclone variant, or even an old school version of the guy. I've managed to find a grand total of 5 copies for sale. The cheapest of which is around $200US. So that works out to be about $300 for me, or possibly $350

WOW. Just, WOW. You really are a stupid c**t aren't you. Keep it up laddo, you've no idea just how 'villainous' I can be.

And to keep this on topic, I've gotta go with Laser Rod Prime. Great alt mode, reasonable articulation in robot mode and a button to make lights work...

Failing that, BT Grimlock's fairly nifty

In that case, I beat your choice with RiD Scourge, which is the same toy with better paint scheme.

Sans electrics, ergo I win.

Unless you're talking the Jap release Black Battle Convoy (is that right? Cliffy? Brend?) which iirc did have working electrics.

Black Convoy. Battle Convoy was the Japanese name for LROP... some people insist on calling the CR version Black Battle Convoy, but this is seemingly because they're stupid.

And I don't think he does have electronics. Dalek's got the one that used to be mine, so ask him...

I'm pretty sure they gutted them... and RiD Scourge does come out slightly ahead through not having the pink.

I think the Black Battle Convoy thing comes from wanting to differentiate the toy from the black Convoy premium. I mean, it's still wronger than Hitler bum-raping an underage pony, but that's where it comes from.
