My 30 years of Transformers - Display Case 12

Today its the Display Case (12) that saw the start of the "classicverse", the first chapter of an ongoing "backup" series of toys aimed at the older collectors who would be more familiar with the homages, or prefer to buy them instead of the mainline of toys that's aimed more at the mainstream consumer or younger kids.
It started out as just a small 6 month filler line called Classics in 2006 (released as Henkei in Japan), that ended up spawning multiple toylines of that similar theme/style, with next year being 10 years since that "filler line" was released.
And for the Beast Wars fans, we also had a small 10th Anniversary toyline of redecos, with a bonus Transmutate figure.
