We will begin at approximately 9PM EST as usual!
So much nostalgia in this episode…. love it. Lost so many of my original G1’s as I didn’t really pick back up collecting till the mid 2000’s in my mid 30’s… and so many of my originals were lost in yard sales in the 90’s. Had the autobot and decepticons clones, had the jumpstarters….. this is such a nice trip down memory lane.
You pronounce it right.
Don struck a cord with me too. so many G1’s I broke and played with or just posed on a shelf. now i see masterpiece transformers of today and it takes me back. G1’s were toys, materpiece are show pieces. but i still like to play with them. dotn even try to pronounce my last name.
box art is what sold me the toy as crappy as some were
It’s much easier to pose a figure in realistic poses now than back in G1 when you might be lucky to have anything more than shoulder joints
I used to throw boxes away. I now save the boxes & card backs so I can go back and look at the artwork. I toss the bubble & inserts but save the paperwork & card backs.
when transformer first came out i was 14. i didnt care about saving the box then. 1 no room and 2 no appreciation.
They do take up space, I fold boxes flat. Then save the card backs in comic sleeves, filed.
I remember having Grotusque, he was gaudy and hideos, but I loved him so much, from the monsterbots.
speaking of poseability, remember G1 combiners? bricks that stacked, lmao
Only Gobot I ever had growing up was Good Knight… I was pretty much Transformers and my parents knew what I was really looking for
I never liked the Gobots when I was younger. But over the last couple years I’ve grown to appreciate them, and pick them up at flea markets when I see them.
gobots! i watched that cartoon recently, how aweful. as a kid it was great. i had a few of those too. more poseable so i thought they were better.
I had Super Spay-c and Desroyer. Still have ’em
Good friend had Puzzler, I that one was the only Gobot I ever wanted as a kid, though.
yes, Don, i saw that review a few days ago. it’s awesome
Looking back, I bought Countdown, the Decepticon aircraft base & several micro master vehicle sets. I purchased them from Hills department store on extreme clearance. I wish I would have bought all the other sets now. They were all around $3 to $5 each.
Optibotimus and KathleensKlutter both have reviews up for Titans Fort Max
Kathleen seemed to get a bad one. hers had so many QC issues.
Frank Marzegliano Yes, she did….. there were some with botimus’ but Kathleen’s have several issues all over the place.
yes i saw. poor girl. she looked so disappointed.
i need to watch those reviews…
Frank Marzegliano I’d be too, that’s a lot of $$$ to put out with that many QC issues.
Duron Land, want the links?
Black Zarak…. GPS personified
Alternators is what got me back into collecting.
The Alternators are slightl better in vehicle mode over the MP’s…. I keep most of mine in my display as robots, I used to display them in car mode and people would think they were model cars
The only Alternator figures I have left are Grimlock/Wheeljack, Hound/Swindle & Ricochet. For the difficulty I do like the Mustang mold, Hound is my favorite & I love the colors on Ricochet.
In the Alternators my three top favorites are Hound, Grimlock and Nemesis Prime… I have all the alternators except Hot Rod and Swerve
I need the clear car Bros.! Look so nice! Lol
i want rid car bros non clear
did they do clear verisons of the sky changers
Repainting is a long time Transformers tradition.
I agree Don! I just picked up Octane the other day & I liked it much more than I did at first.
Wreck-Gar from that line was a phenomenal looking bike, through.
They will release the image one pixel at a time.
Brave Little Toaster Combiner, yea or nay?!
Vaccum for the legs, Toaster for the torso, Lamp and Radio for the arms, and Blankie for the head/cape.
