PostSubject: Transformers..G1 ofcourse!   Thu Dec 29, 2011 10:59 am

So, Monday I saw an ad on craigslist for some star wars toys that my wife wanted to buy for me since she was only able to get me that pop up R2 for christmas. There was a Vader case with about 25 figures, some weapons, a bunch of vehicles, and some others odds and ends. I figured $50? Hell yeah! I will give the falcon to my son, its likely a beater anyway, keep the slave 1 and I dunno, blow up the stupid rebel cruiser thing.

Here are his photos



I emailed him and he said he had some transformer stuff too that he wanted $30 OBO, so I said, why not, maybe their will be something cool, then he sent me these pics




I saw bits for Devastator and Skywarp and knew immediately that I wanted all. Not being a TF collector, I have no idea what this stuff is going for, I figured that there was no way I could lose.

Well I had a friend go pick it up and he said most of it was in amazing condition, so I was stoked. I met him after working a 16 hr shift and having to be back at work at 6am and almost had a heart attack. I have not pieced all ofthe stuff together, there is a lot of parts for missing bots and bots with missing parts to sort through, but here are a few pics of what I have managed to get together so far. Enjoy!







Turns out this is a MAJOR score, so I am looking to complete a few of these guys and dump off some of the crappy ones. I guess I found out my newest addiction since I just finished my kenner set. My wife hates my collecting habits, but now I can officially call her an enabler lol!

Back to the Star wars stuff...It was also in amazing shape. The falcon looks almost new, the slave 1 is complete, as is the snowspeeder. Instead of blowing up the cruiser, I may give that to my son since I cant imagine what he and his 3 year old brother would do to that falcon. I hate not giving him that, but its honestly too nice to let it get destroyed. I need to find a beater for him, this is collector grade

Awesome Haul Tim and well worth the price you paid and then some!

Some of the highlights I see are Soundwave and cassettes, Devastator, Wheeljack, Mirage, Sunstreaker, and Swoop. It looks like you also have some of Jetfire's snap on armor in the sellers original pics.

I can imagine how much fun it is to sort out that huge haul!!!

Not being a TF collector, you must have had a steep learning curve, to be able to label these items correctly. Very Happy

It took me about 3 hours to sort the pile after I had put together all of the parts I remembered. Transformerland.com has a fantastic visual guide for parts. No way would I have been able to do that without it!

Unlike star wars, every character has their own specific accessories, Not just a generic blaster. The only thing I can think is more hectic to keep up with is GI Joe!

Congrats on the score Tim. I had a few as a kid, but never got into them much. One day I might take the plunge and buy a few again. I had 2-3 MOC from Argentina last year, kinda wish I kept them now.
