Those will have to wait till after I do this quick "bulk" update of the things I have been picking up.
From left to right:
- G1 Jetfire, complete and unused (Matsushiro variant) - no doubt, i will write more about this at some point in the future.
- FansToys FT-03: Quakewave, aka Shockwave
- Transformers Generations (Japan): Senator Ratbat
- (top) Tokyo Toy Show exclusive, MP-12T: Tigertrack
- (bottom) FansProject CA-12: Last Chance, aka Dead End
- Justice League, New 52: Martian Manhunter - this will join my Justice League figures here.
Except for Jetfire which I bought from eBay (from eBay seller 'The Mint 1980s Toy Store and Museum'), all the above were bought from retail in Hong Kong, even MP-12T.
I have one further thing to add about MP-12T - do yourself a favour and read what Maz has written on the lineage and significance of this piece. It is more than a hollow repaint. After reading what Maz has wrote, I am sure am glad I did not pass this up and potentially have to pay high secondhand market prices.
Maz's brilliantly researched and written article is here - Who is Tigertrack? - Part 1. Be sure to check back for Part 2!
I end with a gratuitous close up shot of Jetfire.
