    Wow, I had no idea the G2 Powermasters were exclusive to those areas! Learn something new every day. I only had Staxx and his Decepticon partner Bulletbike. Didn't have the Autobots Ironhide and Meanstreak.

    Captain Craig, to clarify, the G2 Powermasters were not like the original Powermasters, so they didn't have a Nebulan partner that turned into their engine like for example Slapdash. Instead, their gimmick was that they had a pull-back motor that could be triggered by inserting their guns into certain slots. With Staxx for example, as you can see, the guns go into the sides of the cab, also becoming his exhaust stacks.

    Yeah, they are also really bad TFs, Bulletbike is actually my least favourite TF toy ever. I have the other three some I want Staxx to complete the lot.

    That for sure helps. Not being US releases AND not being a fan favorite figure(like some other international only figs were) is a major reason he passed me by in awareness.

    As soon as I read Powermaster I looked closer so thanks for reading my mind(or fully reading I felt it was more Throttlebot-esque).

    I attended 10 Botcons consecutively from '99-'08 and can't say I ever saw one of these G2 Powermasters at any dealer. Maybe its cause G1/BW/BM/RID then Movie were the big fan draws and dealers catered there.

    Bit of a shame the G2 toys/characters were never really promoted in any media outlet; some of them showed up in the short-lived G2 comic book, but that was mostly concerned with continuing the story of G1 mainstays like Optimus and Grimlock, and the Generation Two cartoon was just G1 with CGI interstitials awkwardly woven throughout the episodes.

    Skybound is reprinting marvel and gijoe comics.

    Omar talked about this on near mint today. Said he is still not allowed to talk about it till its announced by skybound but this looks like was not supposed to be announced yet. Second time hasbro leaked comic news!

    As for reprints hope the universe handbook and uk comics are included and the transformers and real ghotbusters uk crosover is not left out or the gijoe shang chi crossover.
