A lot of Transformers to choose from in 1986... Made especially hard considering lots of them are still my favorites from G1.

OK, here goes...

1. Size does conquer all (that's what she said)!: Predaking
2. Stubby arms but excellent alt modes beat out proper arms but 'futuristic' alt modes: Sandstorm
3. The first Mutant Beast (missing a robot mode): Trypticon
I'm so meta, even this acronym...

Yeah Predaking did always look like a Power Ranger Zord or something to me

1) Bruticus :He was always an awesome Combiner to me AND he had a TON of repaints in the future such as Ruination when RiD came along.

2) Ratbat & Frenzy :More cassettes for Soundwave? Uh Yeah! They're Awesome!!

3 Metroplex :Nuff said already.
I am not a GEEWUNNER...I just really like homeages

Motto: ""If you think I'm crazy, you should see the people I'm locked up with.""
Weapon: Armor Axe
1986. The year of the movie. The year of the first models that are not lifted from other toylines. The year of great figures...

1. Springer
He's a Triplechanger. He's a flying Autobot. He's green. And he's awesome!

2. Predaking

Just look at those colors! It's only good and proper he has the word "King" in his name!

3. Hot Rod
Much better toy than Rodimus, I think.
Currently looking for:
- the projectile for Cybertron Supreme Class Starscream's arm cannon
- a gun barrel for Classics Jetfire's (the little black thingy that plugs onto the front of his swing-out shoulder cannons)
- the rotor for Micromaster Tracer (from the Military Patrol)

If you have one of the above and want to part with it, please PM me!

Predaking: A proper combiner size wise. He was ground breaking for the Gestalt figures. Nothing like him has come before or after really.

Trypticon:Man was i DESPERATELY wanting him as a kid. Such an amazing figure.

Gnaw: I thought i'd chuck him in there for honourable mention. He's pretty rad!.Image


Steeljaw: Im my opinion one of the coolest cassette figures ever. Image and here he is taking a cat nap.....don't wake him. So adorable.

Weapon: Rifle
1. Kup - party, because of him being a cool character, partly because I really do like the figure very much. The colours as well. First G1 I ever owned, so maybe I'm a bit biased, but I don't care. :-B

2. Hot Rod - the young punkster. Pretty neat cybertronian race car.

3. Gnaw - The Sharkticon. As I saw I'm not the only one to include him. Weird, but in a good way. Who doesn't like a head with another head hidden inside?

Ultra Magnus

Honourable mentions

Hub Cap

Outback (my first Transformer)

Galvatron (my first Decepticon)

Menasor (if only he were bigger)

Metroplex (gotten a truckload of World's Smallest lately and I'm loving having them interact with them. In fact Broadside's getting some redemption too)

I don't know what that is, but it's not Gnaw!



(actually, I do know what it is, but the image URL. It's a TF Animated styled Sharkticon by someone called Shinobitron. Not the Hasbro one, that doesn't look quite as goofy. At least until you transform him.)
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

Ok, piping up for this one...

1. Hot Rod. Probably the toy I wanted most as a child. And I got him for what I'm guessing was my 6th or 7th birthday. Even after I broke him, he remained my favourite. I named my first pet after him - yes, my porn star name would be 'Hot' Rod Gilbert...

2. Galvatron. Got him unexpectedly one christmas, which was a nice surprise. Gotta be one of the best articulated G1 toys. And as my main exposure to Transformers fiction growing up was the comic, he was even the right colours. And my reissue shouts randomly in japanese.

3. Menasor. I remember spending all my christmas money on the giftset, and was not disappointed. And what's not to love about a team of sports cars with psychological issues led by a violent bully that combine to form a giant, uncontrollable robot with arguments raging in his head.
