I'm so glad I kept all mine. I'd imagine Titan packaging is, albeit to a lesser degree, as well. I do kind of regret tossing my boxes for Fort Max and Trypticon (I have kept all the others), but not enough to go back and purchase just the empty boxes again. I'd definitely purchase a UW eHobby Grand Scourge Box (since mine came loose), and I was fortunate to get it complete with all accessories for a decent price, I cant imagine trying to get one now.


I’d wished I’d carved more art off the boxes. The main reason Titan boxes go in the trash.... there’s no packaging to secure them unless you re-tie. Same reason I didn’t keep a lot of my Takara Galaxy Force boxes.

If they got trays or inserts it’s a harder call. Kept all my constructicon boxes so far

Kind of liked the comic inserts T30 and wave 1-2 did with combiner wars

Yeah, there were only six Decepticons (Combatrons in Car Robots) since they were just a Predacon subfaction in that series.

I wish we would get some reissues. I would snag up Ruination to all but complete my RiD bad guys (despite Towline being my lone good guy!)

I think Grand Galvatron was the best original idea to come from the combiner era. That was so outlandish and cool

TT did rerelease Superion and Devaststor. A few Lynx Masters also showed up again late (but not sure if that was an actual rerelease, or just old stock found). I love having Grand Galvatron, and Grand Convoy, a reissue would be nice for any that missed them the first time.
I am very much interested in Botcon 2016 Customization Class Medix, Shattered Glass Ratchet, G2 Ratchet, and Marvel Comic Ratchet, willing to pay fair price, PM if interested in selling.

The only bad thing is that despite Silverbolt's later mold variants Cyclonus and Scattershot featuring the Combiner Head joint fix, the reissue does not have that! :BANG_HEAD:
The resident Rewind... well, half of one :lol:

Looking for:

You may be wondering why I'm bumping up this thread, and with a KO on top of that.

Well, if I'd post in a new thread in the 3P forum, the post would be completely ignored. I want the CW fans to be aware of what I'm about to show you.

Relatively recently, they made a KO MP-10 that is voyager sized. Some times later, his trailer came out separately. The KBB MP-10V trailer is fairly cheap. It come with roller and a Sam minifig.

Image

My CW obsessive friend wanted to complete his CW Optimus Prime with a trailer. The KBB MP-10V was the right call because with only a very minor mod...

Image

Replacing the original trailer hitch with just a screw of the right length who is resting there between the plastic plates...

Image

You get PERFECTION! All wheels of the trailers rolls perfectly flat and the Optimus truck is just the right size.

Image

Image

Image

As for the original connector, I keep it stuffed in a mini Ziplock bag, stuffed inside the cavity of that thing. Just in case.

Image

So, what do you think? Pretty neat, eh?

Well, not that trailer. I could make some trailer that would split in many components to make a "super mode". But's it's been done to death before so I'll pass.

Still, I did built a new original combiner torso using PotP Hung Gurr as a base. There's no dragon left in this! Once I get the four PotP Wreck Garr that go with him and repro them, I'll share in the custom thread. This one will be a doozy!

Seeing as this thread has risen from the dead, I wanted to get some thoughts from you all on selling off some CW figures that I've re-purposed using toyhax sticker sets.

The biggest question I have is whether it is worth it to try and sell them as their re-purposed figures or pull the stickers off and sell them as their original selves. I'm leaning towards peeling the stickers off, but figured I'd see what every else thought.

I have the following I will probably be selling off in October/November (after 1 last combiner battle royal once God Neptune arrives).
Nova Prime from Battle Core Prime
X-Tinguisher (alternate option of Exhaust) from Wheeljack
The Fallen from Trailbreaker
Smolder from Ironhide

All of them except the Fallen would be easy to return to original. The Fallen does have a faceplate that needed to be glued on. I used the tiniest dot of super glue that I could, but I expect that the faceplate will likely break and a small bit may stay attached.

Anyway, any thoughts on what would be better from a perspective buyer's viewpoint would be appreciated.

Also, if anyone is specifically interested in the re-purposed figures, let me know and I'll reach out when I'm closer to selling them off.

I think you should go ahead and try to sell them as the repurposed figures. Depending on the price of them, I would be interested, seeing as how I currently have BC Prime and Overbite right now together, and you have 3 limbs potentially available.

.



I think you should sell them with the stickers on. Include all the original accessories. Then list them as the repurposed name AND as their original name. Leave the choice to remove the stickers to the buyer. Start the auction at 20$ a figure and see how it goes.
