      Do you have any advice on what to watch out for when purchasing vintage G1 stuff? I haven't owned a G1 toy since... well... when they were actually in stores. I read about brittle/crumbling plastics. Anything else I should be aware of?

        Main things I tend to look out for are discolouration, sticker wear, rusted pins or screws - although most of this is cosmetic. I think, be on the lookout for stress marks on plastic (like on Scramble City combiner bots, especially their heads), and all sections with metal flake/sparkles in the plastic.

      I just finnished watching the Transformers episode, and did I get this right - Hasbro came up with head/power/target master toys?

      Commendations for your bold decision to sell off your MPs! Also interesting to hear your allusions to the negative aspects of this fandom; your vague subtlety contrasts with other fans' direct criticisms (of TF fandom itself).

      Still shocking, as you said, to see you quit the MP scene, as I kind of considered you a stalwart pillar of the MP hobby! But hey, MPs are overrated; go CHUG. :)

        Haha it was a big decision based on so many contributing factors, catalysed by a big big ticket item I knew I'd have to sacrifice many toys to be able to afford. It's also a very thorough experiment in seeing just how much of my collection really is 'essential' - because life certainly would be easier without much of it, but the question is how enjoyable would it be.

        Thank you for the kind words!

        I completely understand and envy your forward momentum! lol I, too, have found myself encumbered by a vast collection I couldn't possibly enjoy, due to quantity/space/time.

        I enjoy your articles a lot, and you've got a lot of great insights to share! You know what they say: "Less is more!" :)

      Just read your "Return gone Wrong" article...

      I also received a used/open item listed as new. Turns out, eBay customer service functions like a robot - they sided with the seller until I mentioned "item not as described" (even though I had described the situation as so, I had to use a specific set of words, like a magic phrase).

      Ebay can reverse their decision if you are persistent.

      Just wondering have you ever done a article on what people do once finished collecting?
      1. Maz
        Maz
        I don't think I have actually. It has been the case that I've lost touch with some collectors once they've left the Hobby, so could be tricky!

      How much for MP-11 Skywarp?
      1. Maz
        Maz
        Depends on your location, but most likely £120 GBP shipped. Just waiting to hear back from a couple folks who may want to take the set, though. Let me know if you'd like to be informed should those deals fall through.

      I'm quite surprised that my recent pic has gotten your approval! Humbled and honoured to have one of the notable members of the boards to appreciate my input onto the forums after being on for a short while!

        My pleasure man, I adore WJ and Exhaust and all the history that comes with those decos, as well as their motorsport heritage. A fine selection to pic for favourite TF of the day :)

      Do you have reviews of the TOYWORLD constructor in individual bots?

        Hi there, no I have never handled nor been sent those figures for review, and I have not bought them either. Sorry.

      I love the lighting on your figure shoot. And you live in Iceland? Man, I always wanted to visit the Blue Lagoon. Anyhow, keep up the good work.

        Thanks so much mate! Yep, moved to Iceland for work in November! The lagoon is awesome :)

      And apologies if I was one of the critics you were thinking of at the end! :o I respect your work/articles a lot, and hope my criticisms come off as more constructive than bashing. I really didn't realize you were a writer BEFORE a photographer. Your photography is so impressive, I just assumed you tossed some words to go with your pretty pictures! lol Big kudos! :)

      Cheers, mate!

        No offence taken at all and I genuinely appreciate the time you have taken to give me feedback and to post such kind words here! Haha it is completely the other way around, the pictures were always snapped in order to throw some appeal into my writing and break things up!

      Great article ("What Have Transformers Done For Me?")! Very inspiring and interesting piece. Too many career articles speak in cliched abstracts and hyperbole, but you actually concretely connected your points with specific things/events/careers! Kudos for that!

      Yeah,I think everyone knows that already. You're like the Transformers oracle. I only visit those sites for your articles. That whole KO silverstreak (or whoever it was) that sold for thousands of dollars, only to found out as a fake was like reading a Sherlock Holmes story man, great stuff! Very exciting.

      Thanks for all the great articles at TF-1. Just found it recently and been reading a heap of stuff on there. Well written, well researched, the best Tformers blog/fansite this side of Iacon.

      I saw that alphatron creep is on your friends list. Take him off.

      He targets female (or supposedly female) users, prying into their personal info and trying to hook up with them. He came after me once (even though I'm not female) and tried guilt tripping me into adding him onto his friend list. I managed to stop him, but I went through his VMs and a lot of the convos he has with other users are pretty invasive.

      He's banned right now, but he'll probably be back. Just avoid him.

      Heya Maz I've been watching the works of Golby II for a while now and I'm really impressed with the imagination and originality of her style.

      The idea of a commissioned work of Optimus vs Malingus original artwork has been a dream of mine for a while, but I have been afraid of taking the initial steps to get things rolling.

      I want this artwork too be shared and admired by the fellow minibot community and was wondering if you would like too have some creative input, and/or be a liason between the artist.

      I will finance the entire project and I want to get creative input from others.So far I think a melee battle scene where Optimus Bumblebee is fighting Malingus Brawn , where both insiginas are shown.

      This type of artwork would be invaluable to the history of the TFs, I'm in the same boat as you as not being a minibot collector per se but be a great way too have memories of collecting these toys.
