Just a local Hawaii boy that is into G1 Transformers - Transformers classics, Unite Warriors, Generations etc, Hawaii and mainland hikes, travels, and anything he feels like writing. It's my life. Best viewed in web page format.
Took me long enough to open and utilize these. For those new to the TF classics hobby, fans felt that figures like Inferno, Sideswipe, Red Alert, Mirage, and Soundwave was missing some trademark weapons. TFC catered to fan demand and created add ons such as Red Alert/Sideswipe's missile launchers, Inferno's ladder and arm cannon, Mirage's shoulder rocket and invisibility box, and an extra minion for Soundwave. The weapons were intended to be used for the Henkei versions due to the chrome/metallic properties, but they work fine with the Hasbro versions as well. The results.... well, see for yourself.
Box is box. Nice prologue on what's stored for the collector as he opens the toy box. On the last pic: (L to R) Mirage's invisibility box, instructions (poster in the other side), Inferno's Arm Canon/Ladder, 3 missile launchers, and Soundwave's Auto-scout plus 4 energon crystals.
I missed Skids the first time around when he was released late 2013. The first run of Skids ended up suffering leg issues from those who did get him the first time around. The problem I've heard was that he had trouble bending his legs at the hips though this was easily fixable. How easy, I ain't sure but it would had been cumbersome to repair or fix a toy that came mis-assembled when you first opened the box.
Thank God that I ended up missing out on the first batch as he was re-released not too long ago. This time Hasbro fixed the leg bending issues. I had to get Skids, not due to Michael Bay's atrocious representation of him, but he was a G1 character in the G1 series overall. He only appeared in two episodes I remembered in season 2 though his design was different and he only spoke one line total during both appearances! The figure displayed here is based off of his IDW comic book design. Let's get started!
What a beautiful day to hike in gorgeous Hawaii. Got up 5:30AM in the morning for this workout! Though its not a real hike and more cardio, nevertheless, I took on the challenge again. Boy, though I am in shape, my thighs were getting stiff half way through. I thought of quitting. But I remembered the Lord and asked him for strength. I asked and he gave me the strength and determination to reach the top!
Philippians 4:13 (KJV)
I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me.
So this is why you shouldn't make a hasty decision in investing in a voyager class Jetfire/Skyfire because here is Generations Leader Class Jetfire! And you thought that it couldn't get any bigger. Also in the background is http:www.toyhax.com's Cyberscape back drop which I will get to a little more in detail after. Let's get started!
Looking impressive. There is an advertisement for Roadbuster who is canon in the G1 comic continuity. He is part of Springer's wreckers. Yes, I have the figure since I thought anyone that sides with Springer is awesome. I got him for $20 so not bad. Now for robot mode. There will also be some comparisons to the Henkei Voyager Skyfire version.
