the Unicrom Minicon seems to definitely be inspired by the Micro Change Orb. i remember seeing all three Micro Change Orb molds reused in a Transformers series a couple years ago. they weren't chromed out and had completely different paint jobs. i can't remember the name of which toy line it was. Hasbro/Takara/Tomy sure loves reusing their designs. i don't so much. it's nice seeing recolors.

iirc it was the same line that had the condor and kitty cassette molds reused.
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 and any Webdiver toys.

The orbots (eggbots) were reproduced during the Beast Wars era in Japan. I have 5 of the 6 of them. All Clear plastics (blue, green, yellow, red, etc.)

I have a couple of those and envy you some of your pieces. Pre-TFs tend to be super-frustrating to collect, and super-expensive. The blue Blaster I have, I also have a red and blue version. Diaclone Snarl, and a diaclone Mirage round out my meager group (minus those that have been e-hobby'ed).

Wow ... impressive collection! Very unique approach to the early stuff. Would love to add some of the pre-Transformers stuff to my collection. the only pre-Transformers TF I own are Astro Magnum and "Bumblejumper". I'd really like to get a prized piece like Marlboro Wheeljack into my collection. One day! Thank you for sharing these pictures with us.
