Is he Dinobot? Is he a knock off? Bootleg?

Who is he!

For years I thought he was a McDonalds Dinobot, but now I have no idea!

He's a great little Knock-Off, too. I have him and an Override cast in the same colors from when I was a kid. :lol:

Any idea where these came from? Probably a cheap KO of some sort, but ... which ones? I only have TF ones, so this should be from something recognisable. These are tiny. The black ones are pretty much the same.

The white gun belongs to a G2 GoBot (later called Spy Changers in RiD). The other two may also, but I can't quite tell.

The white gun is the same mold as Go-Bot Blowout, Megatron, Frenzy and RiD Hot Shot, though none of theirs is white. There could certainly be another mold that re-uses that gun though.

The white gun does belong to the G2 Blowout mold, but the only white variety is this one:

Car Robot Super Artfire

If you have this guy, you're lucky! :shock:

The two black ones are less rare, they belong to G1 Hook. Why do you have two of them?

The Spychanger! Of course!

The other's from a KO of Devestator. That explains it, since I have a mid size one and a tiny one.

Thanks, guys!

Because the Super Spychangers are rather obscure, especially the clear ones. Let's not even mention the Jusco repaints.

Did you know Super Spychangers basically only had their colors inverted?

I did not! That's a nifty bit of trivia. :)

Which continuity is this Rodimus from? Can't seem to figure it out in my searches #-o He has quite a bit of die-cast on him. Found him at a flea market this morning. Didn't think to ask the vendor, but I doubt she'd have known. She seemed more like a mom who was selling off a few her kid's unwanted toys because most of the booth was glassware and whatnot (I'm still kind of kicking myself for not picking up the two Armada minicons she had for tewnty-five cents a piece, but I'm just not a mini-con fan >.<)

Consider this my kicking you for not picking up Mini-cons. :lol:

Also, that's titanium Rodimus Prime, and while I normally reserve a special place in hell for Rodimus, I have to say that I'm quite the fan of this mold.

Thank you, for both the kick and the identification! lol. Ah well. Next time (even if those sort of steals are few and far between).

lol... I was going to give you a hard time about the inverted colors thing but you seem to have caught yourself on that one.

I recognized the style of the white gun instantly, just couldn't remember exactly which Spychanger it went to. I have no less than 3 of each Spychanger with the exception of Optimus which only had his G1 colors and the Scourge repaint (to the best of my knowledge) and X-Brawn being my only "single" out of the lot, and the guns all ranged predominantly between black, white, yellow and gray with Crosswise actually having a red one with one of his repaints. Took me 3 years and hitting stores covering a 150 mile radius from where I live to track down as many as I found but once I started collecting them it became too much fun to quit before I had exhausted most of my resources. Still have a few to go but finding the older ones is going to get expensive.

I'd imagine it's something like collecting mini-cons, so I think I understand how you feel, though I typically keep a tight rein on myself. :lol:

Hello,

I have a curious question...

I just recently bought an MP-4 Transformers Masterpiece Perfect Convoy.

Just wanted to check with others, to make sure this is the real deal.

Most (if not all) Masterpieces have a shiny coating over the image of the character on the front of the box (both robot and vehicle).

However, my MP-4 only has a shiny coating over the image of the truck (not the robot).

Is this normal?

Thanks.

Is this some sort of SNARL variant. I found the Armada Class Snarl here which is the same exact mold just different colors. Anyone have any idea? Thanks.Image

That would be Universe 2003 Dinobot Striker, based on the Beast Machines character (who may have relations with G1 Snarl).

For further Transformer ID questions I'd suggest going to TFU.info and bookmarking it.

Is this Starscream. I'm looking on here at the Energon version which I thought it was but there are some differences. Not even sure if the big sword is his but that's how I found him.
