Well spank me silly and call me Va'al. I actually had Monte Carlo (no idea what happened to him). Wasn't a bad figure, the arms could be a problem though because of the "shoulder pads".

Transmetal 2 Blackarachnia and her Arcee repaint both have a flipping spark crystal with a different faction on the opposite.

"Beast Changer" (Savage/Noble) has a unique spark crystal that's half Vehicon and half Maximal. Kind of a bend to the criteria but an interesting one.

ROTF Wheelie

I'm sure there are others too.

Motto: "*Shrug*"
Weapon: Saw-Edged Pincer
Armada Sideways as well.
Reverse Convoy/Rebirth Megatron has both, but you have to look a little harder for the Decepticon one.
CW Megatron has a sticker sheet with both factions on it, though it may be a stretch since you wouldn't use both at the same time.

Its not that much to go on. Of course, I say that in this list which has nothing ignored, but this list was more to be informative and to really give a well deserved crown to Jetfire, highlighting how great it was to actually get a damn valkyrie as part of the TF line up (I mean, its pretty crazy when you think we got that).

Speaking of the valkyrie, where were those in that link you sent Jelze for the mark toys? What was the name of the line they were a part of, and were they as cheap as the others?

Man, investigating Mark is such a mess... but I think I got figured it out now, thanks to the toy list of ToyboxDX.

To start off: the toys were produced by Mark it seems, however the ones based on Dorvack, Macross, Orguss, Beetras and even Galvion were designed or commissioned by Takatoku Toys. As that company went under, Mark went on its own as per usual, and used the designs that were finished, but never released in time, for their own lines or licensed them out to Select, and seemingly formed a partnership as some Mark toys carried the Select copyright mark when released in Japan.

That aside, I found the parent or child lines of all Convertors toys (except for that freaking Bull! :BANG_HEAD: ). For the interest of Transformers, here are the ones relating to the Deluxe Autobots and Jetfire:

Variable Machine Series (Dorvack)
Wheels (Mugen Calibur)
Chopper (Ovelon Gazette)
Tanker (Bonaparte Tulcas)

Henkei Type (Macross)
Zardak (VF-1S Super Valkyrie)
Zark (VF-1S Valkyrie Roy Fokker)

Those were released by Takatoku Toys, hence the initial confusion.

Wait so the samller scale Macross toys were actually released by Takatoku and not Mark?

Yup, but as noted before probably produced by Mark, for Takatoku. Only that particular series though. It's the same type of outsourcing used for Omega Supreme and Sky Lynx, which made the copyright default to the manufacturer and not the commissioner once the latter went under.

Other figures with both faction symbols that I can think of are Revenge of the Fallen wheelie, Universe razor claw, Robot Masters reverse Convoy, Armada sideways Armada Wheeljack, I believe Revenge of the Fallen Jetfire does, and I guess Generations leader Megatron... I still feel like there's more

No need for multiple consecutive posts, there's an "Edit" button in the top right corner of each post you make. :)

I did some quick checking with regards to the new figures you mentioned:

Prime Arms Micron Gaia Unicron: another one with a sticker sheet with multiple symbols: :CON: and :BLEND:
AoE Flip & Change Grimlock: :BOT: only.
Titanium Megatron: :CON: only... technically. He does have multiple :BOT:, as a counter for many he's taken down perhaps. By that logic Universe 2008 Hardhead should count as well, as his shield has a struck out :CON:
Universe 2003 Razorclaw: He presents a special case, as he has three: a sculpted :MAXIMAL:, a tampoed :CON:, but his Spark Crystal is a :MAX2: one, an accident no doubt. That's quite common with Universe 2003 toys, as Hasbro grabbed whatever Crystal was at hand, and since they're covered up by :BOT: and :CON: tampos, nobody would notice, right? Right?
RotF Jetfire: despite being labeled an Autobot, he only has :CON: because of his prior status as a Seeker.

Top 5 Priorities:

1) BW Neo X-7 Elphaorpha
2) RiD 2001 Dreadwind & Smokejumper
3) RiD 2001 Destructicons Bludgeon & Scourge
4) Universe 2003 Night Slash Cheetor
5) BW Convobat (red) & Megalligator (purple)
