  1. I got a G1 Brainstorm today and the hip joints were locked up. The legs almost couldn't move. I sprayed the joint with WD-40 and now they work like new.

      Careful dude, that stuff can damage some plastics... which you would already know by now if it damaged yours... but you know... just case :)

  2. I once had the normal-sized version of the Doubledealer knock-off. It was crap.
  3. These vintage knock-offs are neat. I wish that company in China that makes G1 knock-offs would have the decency to package them in original boxes like the vintage ones had.
  4. Why? These toys are usually between $15-17 each.
  5. This is good news. I wonder if they'll make Astrotrain in G1 toy colors or G1 cartoon colors? They'll probably do both.
  6. Scavenger could be in second place, but Sideswipe is the worst of Armada. Still, Scavenger can be the worst Armada Decepticon while Sideswipe can be the worst Armada Autobot.
  7. What is everyone's hang up with the Armada Sideswipe? I actually thought that compared to some of the figures in the Armada line that he wasn't so bad. Unless I am thinking of the wrong figure? Look at it:
  8. Extreme frugality, that's what they were thinking.
  9. I can see that. I do wish Hasbro's attitude toward the Classics line was the same one they had with the 25th anniversary G.I. Joe toys. What happened with those is what should have happened with Transformers Classics. The Joes were meant as a small line of anniversary toys, but they became very popular and so Hasbro decided to continue the toy line. Still, it is the fault of the first Transformers movie. Even if one likes the first Transformers movie it still stinks, because it was made clear by Hasbro that it was the cause for the poor treatment of Transformers Classics. As for MP Megatron, I'm not as fearful of the toy as most people, but there is one negative that you didn't mention. It's the tarnishing of Megatron's metal frame. I think it's real shame that something like should happen to modern day Transformer, let alone a Masterpiece Transformer.
  10. I'll have to create some sub-categories for my list. Worst Autobots: The cars from RID. They have frickin' doors for arms! I've tried buying some now, but as I look at the pictures I just can't do it. Worst Decepticons: ROTF Constructicons and Devastator. Single Worst Autobot: Armada Sideswipe. Single Worst Decepticon: Beast Machines Megatron. I could have chosen Megabolt Megatron, but at least that one has a decent robot mode. This one is hideous all around. Worst Toyline: Beast Machines. Worst Cartoon: Armada. I want to say Beast Machines, but Armada's stupidity overrides the general awfulness of Beast Machines.
  11. So, does anything extra come with the set or is TFSource just lying to get people to buy their add-on kit?
  12. I tried Roadbots once. They're lousy. I did get them in a similar BBTS clearance sale, so didn't feel bad about throwing them into the recycling can

  13. Speaking of KO's, Big Lots has some more for their Fall reset. I saw the usual yellow Constructicons and the Protectobots. They have two packs of Aerialbots. A three pack of what appear to be one Energon Aerialbot and what are probably two Robotmasters jets; I'm not sure on that, though. There are also those transforming insect robots, which aren't really KO's. Walgreen's has Roadbot KO's. Two large ones, same bot but in different colors. There are also some nice looking smaller robots, three different characters. They look to be about the size of a deluxe Transformer.
  14. Fix? I don't even have one yet. I probably won't either, since I'm waiting for the inevitable repaints. Anyway, elbows that bend the other way? :tflaugh How very G1.
  15. I've de-hauled today. I returned my voyager movie Megatron. I had him for a couple of weeks but the damned thing is just not good enough.
  16. I found leader class Brawl today as well as G1 colors movie Starscream. I found G1 color Jazz a couple of days ago. The colors on the Jazz toy are superior to the gray used in the movie.
  17. What parallel universe is that in?
  18. I bought Alternator Silverstreak from a Wal-Mart in, Burbank, IL, a suburb of Chicago. It's not one that have ever gone to, but since I was passing by, I decided to go in and take a look. They only had one, but at least it's nice to know that the toy is in the area. Still looking for Hound though. :tfgrin
