I totally agree, Zero! I still would mind adding Vroom or Skyhammer to the collection, but one is too expensive and the other has GPS problems. I already have Roadblock and may have to deal with GPS when he crumbles, but I don’t need more at this point.

I would have taken Roadblock out for pics again, but went with one where my only concern is the tiny plastic nub on his guns instead…

Bomb-Burst was one of the cheapest I ever hunted ($25 IIRC!), but remains a favorite, thanks to the Marvel comics — and simply being a vampire. ;)

I can’t believe Iguanas is getting a Core update in the upcoming Legacy line! Of course, I am guessing he will be a little figure like the other Pretender updates, but still — he deserves an update. ;)

I took some shots of Submarauder the other day — he is one of the least popular, but I had lots of fun taking these shots of him.

Agreed Zero! He looks the most like a kaiju as well — that was really part of the appeal of the Pretenders for me.

When Childrens Palace was going out of business I managed to finish my Pretenders sets, got a bunch of the large ones for 5.99 a pop and all of monstructor for 1.99 a pop. I was very lucky indeed (I have all the original US pretenders including mega and ultra ones).

WOW, that's a helluva deal, Cyber Bishop! We couldn't even pay those low prices on those little, recent updates (Titan Masters). To get Vroom for $6......I don't think he goes for less than $150 complete, loose. Great score, man!!

heh, I figured it had to be around the early 90s, Cyber Bishop, but still -- that was a great deal even then! I only started re-collecting the Pretenders in the last 5 years, so while some of them were kinda cheap, they got super-expensive when they "returned" with Titans Return.

The only Bludgeon(s) I have is his RotF figure, and that li'l Titan Master -- I'd love the G1 version. ;)

For Autobots, I'm always hoping I can get Vroom for a good deal, but that seems impossible -- much like I will never find a cheap Metalhawk (I also got the Titan Master there lol).

When Lionel Playworld shut down I got a bunch of the micromasters cheap too. I miss those stores.

hah, Playworld! I also remember Kaybee Toystores, and I wish I could have cleaned them up when they went down. I still miss Toys R Us, but they didn't have much of a close-out when they went down.

Nowadays, stores can barely keep the figures collectors really want on shelves, and aftermarket prices keep on rising -- just like Pretenders, the Maximals and Predacons were relatively dirt cheap 3-4 years ago. But now? It's like they've doubled and then some.

I'm still glad I had all those trade-in deals with my local geek store some years ago. But having known, I would had gotten EVERYTHING in one fell swoop.

Oh well, I have more than enough!

I feel a lot of envy right now. I want so many more pretenders, and that price is so much better than anything else.
