Universe Dinobots

Transformers Universe Dinobots

These 2 dinobots were purchased at a time before I was really buying toys, I just happened to see them at the store and picked them up for nostalgia reasons I guess. Also I love dinosaurs and these dino modes are very cool, unfortunately the robot modes are not good in my opinion. These guys will be staying in package for display purposes even though I generally open box my Transformers.

Optimus Prime - all the time!

Transformers Optimus Prime Collection

This is a recent shoot I did to get a better idea of how many Prime figures/collectables I have now. It was fun but time consuming setting it all up. There area few other things not in the picture such as the "Built to Rule" Megablock Prime and a few Transformers 08' Movie items like the Titanium set of 2 Primes and a special truck mode.

Lighting this up was a bit tricky so the quality of my pics is not up to par, but I will continue shooting my toys 1 at a time as usual to show thier detail. Its nice to see them all together though and makes me really want to get into a bigger house where I can start displaying some of my robots properly.

Decepticon Leader Megatron

Transformers Vintage G1 Megatron

Here we have my original (1984) Megatron figure pictured in gun mode only as I'm too afraid to damage him while transforming. I have all his attachments but for this shot wanted to focus on the detail of the gun. The little Megatron figure at the top is the special metal paint version from the modern Robot Heros line.

Dinobot Slag

Transformers Vintage G1 Slag

My favorite Dinobot! Slag was a badass in the 80's cartoon, that in combination with the Triceratops being my fav dinosaur made this toy a must have as a boy. Slag was originally part of Takara's Diaclone Dinosaur Robo series.

Dinobot Grimlock

Transformers Vintage G1 Grimlock

"Me Grimlock!" yea it sounds dorky but also cool at the same time. I love the dino mode on this guy, bot mode is not as good, still few Transformers were cooler than this guy back in the day. Like the other dinobots, Grimlock was originally part of Takara's Diaclone Dinosaur Robo series.

Dinobot Swoop

Transformers Vintage G1 Swoop

My Swoop is definatley a prized part of my collection. Not only is he cool in dino and robot mode, but this is one of the more rare G1 Transformers especially in this condition. Swoop was originally part of Takara's Diaclone Dinosaur Robo series.

Autobot Roadbuster

Transformers Vintage G1 Roadbuster

This is a cool and unusual Transformer. It was licensed from a different toy line than most, usually Takara. Roadbuster comes from the Japanese anime series Dorvack (1983-1984) and was originally called "VV-54 AR Mugen Calibur", Katsumi Itabashi and Nobuyoshi Haraba designed the mechs in Dorvack.

He is pretty rare in complete form as there are many parts to loose with all the armor and backpack parts that attach after transforming it. Also this mold is no longer licensed to Hasbro so reissues are more than likely not going to happen.
