Here is another pickup that I nabbed from the 2013 TFCON.
|Me Slag say, "Ciao! ParLa L'Italiano?"|
This was in one of the first booths that my friend "M" and I came acroos as we walked down
the hallway to actually get into the convention hall. I forget the guys name (apparently we bought some stuff from him at one of the other conventions) but he had a bunch of old G2 and G1 items. Unfortunately, I'm such a stickler for the condition of the figures I buy that I tend to miss out on some really great things because of some creases or such. This dealer did have a G2 Sideswipe but again, due to the condition I have, couldn't pick it up due to some unfortunate bubble damage. Anyway, this piece rocks just by itself!
I don't intentionally go out of the way to grab any pieces that come from foreign countries, but if they're in nice enough condition it certainly won't stop me.
Slag originally went through several changes in the G2 line.
- First, he was released in silver ( rarer version to find; most expensive)
- Then, in red (more common)
- Finally, in dark green (most common)

|Let me see how good my Italian is...|
FUNCTION : Reconnaissance Dinorobot
" I try to give the best in every battle, because it is exactly what the Dinorobots expect from me!"
Tricex is strong, powerful and extremely attentive, enter without fear into enemy territory, and will never fail to complete a mission; and in the form of Dinorobot, knows how to use his great strength to break any barrier and reach the goal.
Looks like I still have some figures to collect. I really would like the Megs next.
|Nice and straight !|
|Back shot of figure|
Anyway, I'll have to see if I can find a loose G2 slag later for some figure shots because I sure as hell ain't opening this one up, but if you have a G1 Slag there really sin't much difference.
Hope you enjoyed this guys!
