  1. http://www.bigbadtoystore.com/bbts/product.aspx?product=xtr10006&mode=retail This has my vote for worst third party accessory for TF’s, ever! $30 for this freaking thing? Are they KIDDING??? I think one can go to the Dollar Store and get one of those Rubber Circus animals + cage that grows when you drown it in water, and it's as good as something this lame. If it came with the Ravage toy, sure then maybe, but JEESE! Big Bad should take this off the market and slap who ever decided to put it up there in the first place.
  2. I had to re-read your article twice, too early after election night. SWEET! The lack of copy under the hood puts those parts in a category all its own. Could not be someone swapping parts with a G2 SS or the E-Hobby remake of DC with NO copy in that spot. I made a custom all black SS years ago, it's part of my Police Force so customs are fairly easy EXCEPT for the copy stamps. Never knew about this variant until now, and have no intention on seeking one. I'll leave that to the purist collectors who can swing it. I'll stick with my custom...which for some reason I swapped pa
  3. Living in NJ, directly in the path of the hurricane, hoping my faming and friends will be safe, but also my new home and my stuff - still locked up in a storage locker. Invsion the roof blowing off, and my stuff getting at the very least drenched in water. House is insured, stuff is not. How about the rest of you in the Tristate area?
  4. TOY HUNTER??? I can teach that guy a thing or 3 about hunting transformers. Especially about getting a decent hair cut. It took me 10 years to piece together my red Skids diaclone variant, from 2 junk lots. First one gave me the back 1/2 of the car/legs the second 1/2 came from Singapore and gave me the front 1/2. Took 3 seconds to clip the bot together, looks fantastic and only cost me about $20. Snagged a Red Faced G1 Slag at Botcon 99 from a junk lot on the second day of the con while all those deal seekers failed to notice it, for $3. My diaclone yellow Sideswipe. I bo
  5. I found yet another killer Junk Lot to buy, no where near as cool as a Blue Bluestreak, but dang. I got a Fansproject broken Springer, a Music Label Soundblaster, a Henkei Prime and a bunch of others for $55+s&h. BUT... I GOTA STOP! I have my first mortgage payment coming in November. So what if that's several hundred bucks worth of cool bots for $55... So what if score after score after score brings cool stuff to my house So what if I have to eat canned soup for lunch every day so I can make up some of the money for all these purchases. I gota pay for the pla
  6. How about using Smokescreen doors? They are blue already. Maybe not exactly the same color tho. I made my custom bbs in smokescreen blue colors,,, just not the same.
  7. UPDATE: it is still cool to have a bbs! added doors from a junker prowl, cooler. should i paint at least the outsides of the doors metallic blue? friend of mine argues it might make people think its all custom. it's original
  8. http://www.hasbro.com/transformers/en_US/shop/details.cfm?R=9CBCF7C0-5056-900B-101D-04E61D6A4BA0:en_US I just stumbled on this today, and bought it direct from Hasbro. It's 4 Classics variants in one shot. You get for $30 + shipping, a BETTER version of the Diaclone colored Powered Convoy aka the blue Optimus Prime as a redeco classics laser Optimus AND the G2 styled Jazz. In addition they give us 2 legends repaints, a Nemesis prime and a Thundercracker. Cost me $41 with taxes and shipping, that is SOOOO Worth it! I paid about that for just the ONE KO CHMS Deep Cover Classics

    Classics Dx Set

    DANG IT, I have had all 5 bots from the Classics Diaclone DX set sitting here in a box, and I can't find my camera to take picts and post. Powered convoy, red mirage, deep cover and my custom roller buggy. :( I say 5 because I got the blue optimus and another wearing the armor.
  10. I REALLY want one of those Brawn's that transform like Bumblebee Kits. Have a bunch of bootleg kits from back in the day, SWEET sets! The ultimate was buying a couple of those Classics Hotrod kits. Not every day one can build their own hotrod.
  11. Sacrifices. Depends on how you look at things. Now you can say that the latest economic situation and the raised prices on the current lines are bringing you down, however there are many layers to all of this. I for one have no interest in the TF Prime or WFC FOC lines at all, so even if the economy and price tags have dropped, I'm still not buying. I did buy Shockwave, and actually I might sell it because it's off scale for the rest of the "classics" toys I want. Things are now, the way they are. It'd be like saying oh boo hoo, I should have bought all those G1's off the shelf
  12. that should be switchblade from the diaclone line. gota post my custom shots of mine. energon springer is better.
  13. That's not blaster. That's the original Pre Transformer Microman Boom Box which later became Blaster. BIG DIFFERENCE. See that little black cassette, it's an actual working AM radio. Plug it in his tape deck, which has a headphone jack inside (making it USELESS for any other cassette to be used inside except the AM radio tape) AND the speakers in his legs actually work. The knob on his chest will tune the radio so you can play musc or news radio over his speakers. There's 2 versions of that toy, blue and red. Apparantly someone already noticed and the bid last time I checkedwas
  14. Cell Phone picts, sorry. My good camera is at the new house being used to take pictures of the construction we are doing. All my other camera's are in storage. As a Pre-TF collector, the Blue Bluestreak has been the bane of my collecting existance since day 1. WHY is he called BLUE-Streak when he's not blue?!?!?! Typically one in this condition would probably run somewhere between $250 and $350, give or take (perhaps even more in a bidding war). I remember a couple years ago this transfan I know had a stripped down, broken junker he found at a flea market in Canada and he
