I have returned to collecting vintage G1 Transformers after many forays into modern Transformers lines. This return coincided with a request from IDW Transformers More Than Meets The Eye writer James Roberts to photograph the Scavengers toys (G1 Misfire, Krok, Crankcase and Spinister) for one panel of issue #45. Having to acquire these toys forced me to see just how much I loved buying and owning G1 toys. A solid 1987 Headmasters and Targetmasters collection has sprouted from that realisation, all packaged with good stickers maintained well by the original childhood owner. Whatever the childhood owner whose toys I bought didn't have, I found elsewhere, but I insisted on maintaining the display and item quality that already existed in the collection I had purchased. G1 Headmaster Horrorcon Apeface has been the hardest regular-size Headmaster to find in excellent condition and packaged. The above is the second boxed one I bought, but of course the stickers were unapplied. What to do?

Here is a brief (unlike the photo editing) robot mode pictorial of the latest release from Mastermind Creations, R-01G Reformatted Grandus Hexatron Continuum - a 3rd Party interpretation of the 1989 Transformers Victory sixchanger Greatshot. Greatshot is one of my all time favourite G1 toys and characters, so when MMC announced finally that the Greatshot repaint of the hugely successful Terminus Hexatron (Not Sixshot) was due, I marked the days int he calendar until his arrival. Here he is, and here is a quick run through some of the photos that will make it into Tuesday night's TFSource Blog review of Grandus Hexatron. No opinions or assessments here, I'll save that for Tuesday, but I'm sure you can figure out how I feel about this one...
