Takara Transformers

Agreed. I've never been tempted to go for the FT or HasTak version of Hound. I love my dark green toy-colored gundog. He's so chonky!

I don't have FT Jazz preordered, but I suspect I'll pick him up if I can. I have Downbeat and Hova... and both have strengths, but at this point, it's probably a safe assumption that the FT version will best them.

In general, I'm still averse to replacing figures I'm happy with... but when it comes to '84 carbots, I don't mind owning mutables unless I feel one is perfect (see Gundog).

I bought one of the trailbreakers... one of the earlier ones, but to be honest, I can't even tell you which one. They all look the same. :LOL:

That's funny. I put a deposit on him this morning at ShowZ. He looks impressive.

When I die, I think my family will just bury the optimus prime collection with me rather than trying to sort them all out. I think this will be my 6th "MP Prime", not counting the knocked-up and down versions. I keep saying I won't upgrade, but they just keep getting better.

Also, I got tired of waiting for the reissues of FT Astrotrain and pulled the trigger on one of the high quality KOs for just over $100. Seems like a deal if the figure doesn't suck.

I'm surprised this seems to be the first FT figure to get KO'd. You'd think half of them would have gotten the chinese treatment by now given what many of the out-of-stock figures go for these days.
