Well, you can see here: http://msgman.kuiki.net/newroom

It's not that large, and I'm not that crazy, no sir.

Man, that's an IMPRESSIVE collection of Transformers...
Whoah, and I had not seen those toys since the late 80s...

To think you'd have such a huge collection, with them being in such good shape! =D

I always liked Thrust (the decepticon jet fighter with the vector thrusters)

I'm even more impressed that you can remember a specific Transformer by name, and an obscure one to boot o___O! Most people just remember the usual ones like Optimus prime or Megatron.

Most of my collection is comprised of reissues that have been released in the past few years, so really, it's not that impressive ^^

Reissues? Oh... I haven't seen those around...

And you know me, I ALWAYS go for the underdogs. I was no different when I was a kid. Thrust was always my favorite decepticon just because his wings looked cool. I also loved the Insecticons and the Constructicons to death! I couldn't care less about Prime, Megatron, Bumblebee and Starscream and the other "main" characters...

You my friend, need to come down here, so I can poison ya with Transformers reissues ;D They're cheap, and are very similar to the toys of yore, down to the diecast metal. Unfortunately Thrust has not been reissued yet...

So that means the one you have is an original? =D
I wonder what happened to mine... I had all of the 3 second generation jets...

Yeah, the jets that HAVE been reissued are Starscream, Skywarp, Thundercracker and Dirge. Theoratically ALL have been reissued before by Takara, but only Starscream was a mass release. The other 5 jets were convention exclusives and bloody expensive.

Howver, Hasbro DID mass release Skywarp, Thundercracker and even Dirge. I'm sure they were gonna do Thrust and Ramjet too, but the reissue line is not doing well in the States (poor distribution, bad pricing), so it's doubtful :( So yes, I refuse to pay ridiculous prices for a similar jet, so I got a good deal on an original Thrust and Ramjet :D.
