Toy comparisons, then and now. part 1

hello there, welcome back, I wrote this entry a few years back but I was not happy with the photos at the time, the black backing did not work at all and everything glared so I working on replacing them I took older toys and compared them to new ones of the same name, all from my collection, hope you enjoy… 

Optimus Prime: 1988 Powermaster  versus 2016 Titans Return. 



Fireflight: 1986 Aerialbot verus 2015 Generations Combiner Wars Aerialbot “Firefly”

who is basically the same character and they both have the same gimmick, they become a limb for a combiner, either a traditional one or one of the owners choice, basically a mix and match gimmick…




Starscream: 2006 Classics versus 1983 Kingdam 6 non-takara / pre-hasbro G1





Soundwave: 1983 pre-hasbro Takara MC-10 Cassette Man versus 2012 Generations Fall of Cybertron 



Kup: 20117 Titans Return versus 1986 G1 



Bumblebee: New versus Old

I decided to shorten this one by using 2014 Transformers Bumblebee in robot mode with in vehicle mode of the same mold 2010 Gold Bumblebee to compare with in vehicle mode 2008 Encore Bumblebee and in robot mode with 1984 Generation 1 Bumblebee similar molds with the exceptions of some painted details. (sorry about the glare!)



ok so I am done for another year, I will be back shortly with a new entry in this series of comparisons, and have a happy new year year everyone.
