A Random Find...Part 2

Wow, Fall of Cybertron has been taking up all of my blogging time lately! But I wanted to finish the story I started last week, however in order to do that, a little setup is necessary.

A Random Find

So I went back to my hometown this past weekend to visit family and decided to go on a little hunt. The wife and I perused the local yard sales without much luck but when we reached The Flea Market (and I say that because it is the only flea market in my entire town) we hit the motherload! I nabbed quite a few G2 figures that I will be highlighting later. But it didn't end there...

C-370 Sixliner, the first Micromaster Combiner

Alright, time to get back to some Japanese G1 goodness. I've been holding on to this jewel for a little while because I honestly couldn't remember if I had already created a blog post for him. But apparently I was remembering the similar, yet different Sixtrain. It can get a bit confusing at times. Sixliner here is yet another figure in my ongoing quest to replace all my reissues with originals. I was first introduced to him when it was reissued in 2002 as part of Japan's Micromaster line. Of course all those figures were blind-packed and thus I was required to purchase an entire case (12 figures) to ensure I received a complete set. In fact, this plan lead me to receiving two complete sets, the other which I just recently sold.

TFC-007 Rage of the Hercules

How about that? Something new! For the longest time I was on the fence about this "upgrade" set because I really thought Hercules didn't need it. He was originally designed so that most of his combiner parts were integrated into the individual robot modes. Although unfortunately TFC couldn't find a good way to hide the hands. But I figured I had already purchased everything else Hercules related so I thought why not go ahead and finish him off? I really hadn't taken a long, hard look at all of the upgrades included in this set, but I was looking forward to the forearm replacements.
