New (old) Toys.

 
One of my fellow antique store dealers called me and said he had some Tformers in his booth.
I was able to zip over there before class last night.

Nothing pristine, but cool nonetheless.  
Motormaster, one that is in much better shape than the MM I already own.  
His joints are very...crisp.  Is that the word I want?  He snaps together smartly, without all the flop that MM#1 has.  He obviously wasn't played with as much.



Look at these 2 cuties - I have a soft spot for Seaspray (I clump him with Cosmos - they both need more love).  
I had never seen these little guys before, and didn't realize that they were only 3 inches tall.
Spray's one propeller was broken, but I didn't care.  
Oh, the other guy is Windcharger.  Yawn.



Airraid!  But, he confused me, as his color is different from the guide book. 
I'm guessing he's one of the re-issues, even though he's stamped 1985. 
About 3 3/4 inches tall.



This is an imposter - I'm sure of it.  Can't find him in the book, at all.  And he has no stamps or labels. 
He's 3 1/2 inches tall, but that dozer is cute.  

       

Help me friends list!
Who the slag is this?
I thought it was a version of Jetfire, but I couldn't find any pics online to match.
He's just under 8 inches tall and pretty heavy.  
If you flip up his head, it's stamped 2003 Hasbro, and flipping (or pressing) his head makes the transformation sound. 



Head close-up.



Aft.



Close up of nosecone.

Seems to be a different deco/recolor of Energon Jetfire.

Edit: ayup. Different deco but yeah it's Energon Jetfire.

The red one seems to be a recolor or knock off of scrapper.

Ah, I see. Thanks for looking.

I found this - see first pic in this article:

http://transformers.wikia.com/wiki/Jetfire_(Unicron_Trilogy)

The colors are correct.
Maybe it's the Sky Shadow or Overcast version?

Yeah, sometimes you get lucky.
There's a huge garage sale this Sat at the fairgrounds. I'm probably going to go and see if I find anything.

I don't really know enough about either of them to have an opinion. I only watched Armada once, and I couldn't make it through more than 2 episodes of Energon.
I like the toys.

I'm not a Seaspray fan (I call him Semenspray) but that figure is adorable! I'd buy it.

Good finds! It's nice to have connections.

Not as pervy, but Thundercracker is "Asscracker" and Astrotrain is "Assholetrain". Some of the names are very easy to dirtify.
