Anyway, I wanted to do a post on this piece because it is the last accessory I needed for my G1 American collection. So as of a couple of weeks ago I officially completed my G1 figure collection with all figures and all parts. Now I do still have one decoy and one minispy yet to obtain, and I still need a few tech specs and instruction booklets so I'm not 100% finished, but for all intents and purposes my American G1 is done. It has been a twenty-seven year process that began with the purchase of a single figure: Smokescreen. And now it has ended with Splashdown. Honestly it is an odd piece to be the last one I need, but it just didn't come around that often. Funnily enough, on the last day of Savcon a well-known Transformers parts dealer posted two on eBay. And of course I snatched it right up.
I also thought this might be a good time to showcase Splashdown in a retro segment:
|Pretender Shell and Splashdown Robot|
|"Alt" mode (if you can call it that)|
|Who knew Splashdown had so many pieces?!|
The large pretender figures can be notorious for having a lot of accessories and this guy is no exception.
On another note I've made a small update to my AFA page with a few new acquisitions. Check it out here.
