Alright im sort of new here. Joined back in like 08... But finally got around to adding my collection to the site.
But i have a few questions :wink:
For a few of the RiD (Robots in Disguise) You say a few have like 3 diff. cards/boxes...
Like Armorhide he is listed with 3 diff. kind of cards how do i tell which one i have......
Another is Armada Thundercracker one says with a smirk the other without a smirk... Now is the smirk on the box or the actual figure.. And if it is on the box is it the front or back ?
Just a few Q's for now.
Regarding Armorhide and the other Commandos, here's how the cards break down:
package 1 card: simple "COMBINERS" logo on front of card; Commandos pictured in robot-mode.
package 2 card: tri-lingual 'combiners' logo on front of card ("COMBINERS, FUSIONNEURS, COMBINA"); Commandos pictured in vehicle-mode.
package 3 card: tri-lingual 'combiners' logo on front of card ("COMBINERS, FUSIONNEURS, COMBINA"), with '1 of 5', '2 of 5', etc. added to it; Commandos pictured in vehicle-mode.
With something like Team Bullet Train:
package 1 box: Simple-combiners logo, unpainted(gray) windows variant
package 2 box: Tri-lingual Combiners logo, can come in two variants:
- unpainted (grey) windows variant
- painted (blue) windows variant
For Armada Thundercracker, some of the toys retain the smirk that the original mold (Starscream had) and some don't feature the smirk...as far as I know, there's no way to tell the difference in a MISB specimen (although it's possible that there might be some stamping that might correspond to one version or the other).
Hope this helps.
