I have some questions for you Transfans.


Recommended Posts



Hi, I'm new here. I guess I should explain a little about myself, Transformers wise. I was a kid in the 80s, so therefore I was obsessed with Transformers. Bumblebee was always my favorite because I was always the smallest of my friends :tftounge I own most of the Bumblebee toys I think (G1, Goldbug, Pretender, Action Master, G2)


Anywho, I'm usually not into collecting the toys because I can't really afford them, and don't have the space. However when the G1 re-releases were released I couldn't resist. So now I own the Hasbro versions of Optimus, Jazz, Prowl, Red alert, and Starscream. I figured my collecting was done except for maybe importing Megatron. However the MP Optimus and Alternators have now caught my eye.


I ordered Optimus from Zooscape.com(Hasbro ver.) and am waiting for him to be delivered (he's in shipping). Yesterday I saw him at TRU and almost bought him, but figured I could wait the couple days for him to come in the mail.


Since you guys are experts in the area, I have a few questions:


1) What are the chances of seeing Binaltech/Alternator versions of Bumblebee, Jazz, and Prowl? They're my favorite charactrers, and I think they'd go great with me G1 toys.


2)How posable is the 20th anniv. Optimus?


3)Is there a website out there that explains all the Transformer series'. There seems to be so many!


Thanks a lot guys! :thumb

1) there's been talk of a Bumblebee alternator, I don't know if anything is definite yet

2) very poseable

3) try www.tfarchive.com, or just ask around here. king poseidon knows a lot about the various TF series

Oh, I'm Big Grim by the way. Welcome aboard!

Same thing happend to me, I was actually almost satisfied with my collection, then came the Alty's and MP Prime.Then I made the mistake of picking up some Energon fig's. It's a nasty cycle.


Oh, welcome to the boards! :wave
