This series focuses on the Destrons (or Decepticons) that are within the numbering of '01 to 49' - remember my mission, here?
There were just too many boxes and I could not fit all of them onto my (tiny) table. So I took shots of the '1984' Destrons first (in truth, back in Japan all of '01 to 49' were released in 1985 as part of the Fight! Super Robot Lifeform series).
Top row: 18-Frenzy MIB; 19-Jarguar MIB (aka Ravage); 20-Condor MIB (aka Laserbeak)
Middle row: 16-Megatron MIB (more detailed pics here); 21-Reflector MIB; 17-Soundwave MIB
Bottom row: 22-Starscream MIB; 23-Skywarp MIB; 24-Thundercracker MIB
For completeness, I also snapped pics of the jets that were released in the following year (except Dirge) with this group.
Very bottom row: D-56: Ramjet; D-57: Thrust; 97-Dirge (20th Century Toy Museum exclusive, released in July 2001; for the full story on why I included this version of Dirge, see here)
This is the '1985' segment of the Destrons that are within the '01 to 49' numbers.
Column 1 and 2: boxed Constructicons numbered 31 to 36, and 37 is the Devstar giftset
Column 3: 40-Kickback MIB; 41-Bombshell MIB; 42-Shrapnel MIB
Column on right: 43-Blitzwing MIB; 48-Astrotrain MIB (white); 48-Astrotrain MIB (regular colours); 49-Laserwave MIB (aka Shockwave)
Another shot of the Constructicons and their giftset.
A group shot of all the Destrons in the '01 to 49' numbering. This is all of them, but I've put in some extras because catroon-wise, it made sense to also put them in this group. I will talk about them below.
The Decepticon seeker jets. The three on the bottom row are not part of the '01 to 49' numbering. I have included them so that there is a complete compliment of seekers in the shot.
Middle row: 22-Starscream MIB; 23-Skywarp MIB; 24-Thundercracker MIB
Bottom row: D-56: Ramjet; D-57: Thrust; 97-Dirge (20th Century Toy Museum exclusive, released in July 2001; for the full story on why I included this version of Dirge, see here).
(All the jets except for Dirge are from Devstar37).
21-Reflector MIB. Arguably one of the rarest pieces in this lot. Extremely difficult to find in good condition and even more expensive and rare if unused. I bought this from a Malaysian seller on eBay.
17-Soundwave MIB. This piece belongs to E. I bought it from my usual shop here in Hong Kong.
18-Frenzy MIB: bought from a small shop in the Nakano Broadway Complex in Japan during xmas of 2013.
19-Jarguar MIB (aka Ravage): from TFW2005 member Mellomutt. A very great big thanks buddy!
20-Condor MIB (aka Laserbeak): from TFW2005 member Mellomutt. A very great big thanks buddy!
Middle column: 20-Condor MIB (from eBay). 40-Kickback MIB; 41-Bombshell MIB; and 42-Shrapnel MIB from Devstar37.
Extreme right column: D-72: Octane MIB; 43-Blitzwing MIB; 48-Astrotrain MIB (white); 48-Astrotrain MIB (regular colours).
All are from Devstar37 except 48-Astrotrain MIB (original colours), which is from valkyrie_76 of OTCA.com.au. Would like to express my appreciation and gratitude to valkyrie_76 here, thank you very much mate!
