    Been working on this sucker since the Bumblebee and Cliffjumper keychains came out! They got the ball rolling. So, my collection, completed! I'm done! It feels weird.

    (Please excuse the absence of Vortex. He's in the shop getting repairs :D  )

    Love the G1.

    Very nice collection. Stopping at 1985?? what's wrong with 1986 and beyond?

    Nothing wrong with them but even as a kid the non-Diaclone/Mircoman moulds did nothing for me. Haven't changed my opinion on that in 20 years :D  Made an exception for Predaking though.

    Very nice. :)  Took me about the same amount of time but I included the season 3 stuff too. And that's a very white Jetfire!

    I dont currently collect G1, but I decided that when I do go back to it, I only want the 84/85 guys. So I can relate. Nice job :)

    Very nice, I see you have a fair bit of 1986, why not go all the way and finish that year.... And then you might pick up the technobots and feel the urge for 1987... hehe

    P.S. No twin twist?

    Haha, maybe so, but when I first started making my G1 collection I would pick up a lot at a time and ended up with so many of them it is hard to imagine not having one.

    Twin Twist/Topspin are neither rare or expensive. You can easily pick one up for $5. At that price no G1 collection should be without.

    Amazing what Reprolabels can do, ain't it? :D  Probably spent about 20 hours total with Goo Gone, Q-tips, my fingernails, and tweezers making some of these figures look all shiney again. Well worth all the effort.

    Awesome!! Solid stuff. The other post season 1 toys I like besides Predaking are , Hotrod, and the cassettes. I never had Skylynx but he looks like he could be cool.
