Weapon: Twin Sonic Cannons
I kinda want this, but not for the 100 bucks it would cost me as a non-attendee. Can anyone who's going consider picking me up an extra?

edit: looks like I got a guy helping me out.

It's sad that the fact that it's "Erector" is the only reason I want it and I wasn't even part of the "Erector for Hall of Fame" crowd. Now if he was Overload, I'd be all over it!

Love it! Erector was always a nice wee figure, and Rager is a cool toy. If I could get this at the same price as Rager, I would. Not likely to be scouring ebay for it though.
assembling a Neo-G1/TF:TM cast. Please PM if you have (or know of) the following at a reasonable price: Classics or Henkei Astrotrain, Ramjet, Sunstreaker, Sideswipe, Blurr, or 3rd Party Motobot Arcee, iGear Ratchet and Ironhide.
Also looking for Universe Repugnus and Overbite, Frostbite and Longhorn

Didn't we beat the dick jokes into the ground a couple years ago now? I know it's in fun but stop kicking the horse, it's dead. I like the little guy and have someone hooking me up. Wonder if he'll color match 07 Mudflap at all.

Shafter turned up Friday and even knowing what to expect from the figure, I like him better than his mold mate. The color match I hoped for is kind of a stretch but I think I can manage a half-assed base mode homage. Maybe. It'll be good enough.

My Shafter arrived recently and I've now snapped pics of him and completed my review. Very nice repaint of a great little toy.

It's a shame the molds dont have screws. For me, Shafter and Black Rager are pointless characters for that mold. But a little kitbashing could produce a nice Gobot Road Ranger. Are the figures held together by glue r do they snap together ? Im not going to break my Rager to find out...
