My most treasured transformer toy (i only had 2 ) was a repainted Scorponok. It was given to me by a godfather who was stationed in Japan. It was called Black Zarak in Japan and was a black/red/gold version of Scorponok that came with a trident and 3 minibots in city mode...
I bought Devastator again, I just had to have the big guy in my collection. Also own Metroplex and Ultra Magnus as far as owning "big" TFs goes...
Pride of my collection is a 100% complete Soundwave with Buzzsaw. I also have a box for SW. Got the Autobot equivalent (Blaster) too. Oh and I'm pleased to say I own the Decepticon Clones Wingspan and Pounce, as they're quite hard to come by in the UK.
There's others I've bought, including the following re-issues:
big bad Prime
Galvatron (I also own an original G1 version)
Black Hot Rod
Clear Hot Rod
The cool thing about TFs are they're still available and now I'm finding I'm able to buy all the ones I wanted as a kid!
hey i just got the ultimate bumblebee at wal mart for $80 and i need to know how does voice activation work with this figure all i figured out is it dances to "wip it" and "transformers" than talks a little.
The TF Generations line had a few re-done oldies. It had Rodimus, Bumblebee, Starscream, Grimlock, Mirage, Optimus, Megatron and a few others. Although for some odd reason, I guess since the film was a huge success, figures are extremely hard to find now! Online I've seen prices in the 30-40 range for a toy that normally costs nine bucks, I don't know if it's the lack of production on Hasbro's part, or just California being on a spending frenzy. I haven't been able to find a single good character besides lame-ass Rachet from the film.
There are new classics coming out, Rufus, but I don't know which yet. I know they did a classics Dirge, Thundercracker and Thrust as BotCon 07 exclusives, but whether or not we'll see them on the shelves I don't know.
I think movie Ratchet is awesome, a nice solid piece. There's a repaint of him coming out as an actual red and white traditional ambulance, as opposed to a lime green fire dept search and rescue ambulance.
The only movie figures I do like, though, are Barricade, Ratchet, Brawl and the second Bumblebee. Blackout is awesome but the bulky backpiece is a hinderance.
I'm wondering if/when they'll do more G1 reissues.
Mine has Bumblebee in the left arm and quite bizarrely, Starscream in the right...
The Starscream looks a little off colour, but it definitely appears to be him. (Definitely not Sunstorm.)
Back in the day.. Before my parents mercilessly gave the majority away when 1st moved out. Without consulting me.
Along with every issue from the start of the run to the 30 or so before the end of G1 comics.
(1st transformer brandedBumblebee
Astro Magnum (Knock off shockwave)

Theyre were probably a few that Im forgetting.
