Nine MISB MP Cars

I've been running behind lately, what with the family, work, shovelling snow and working on two podcast shows, with possibly a third in the works, so while I do have a number of blog posts in "draft mode", I just haven't had the time to get them completed.

Photo of 'MY" day 
In the meantime, I was just looking on my shelves and realized I haven't had the opportunity to really talk about my MP Autobot cars. Here's a few photo's.
