    Don't flame me. I've been a Machine Robo (*sigh*...Gobots) fan since the 1980s, and I'm trying to rebuild my collection a bit. Anyone have some they want to unload? I'm looking for Loco, Cop-Tur, the Shinkansen Robos, and Puzzler above all else, but I'm interested in just about anything; Japanese, American, doesn't matter, as long as they're in good shape. I'd rather do business with someone here first, rather than going the eBay route! :D 

    So...whatcha got?

    Damn, here I was thinking I had something you might want. ;) 

    No, really, don't ask what I have... they're all in TERRIBLE shape.

    I only have a couple (Treads and Fliptop) and they're in ok condition. I want to get a few of the Machine Robo Rescue bots eventually and a few of the original gobots (Puzzler, Leader 1, and a select few more.)

    Since you're a fan of machine robo, you might want to check out the new SOC Baikanfu (not yet released.)

    I got Leader-1 and Flip-top. But they're not for sale. Only Robo-machine figures I have.

    Some are in pieces... not a single tight joint on any of em, I have all the robots to Puzzler, however, the cop car is missing his face, one arm, and the lights (which connect him to the top 3 bots), all the paint on most of them is all scratched off...

    I have scooter, but he's also a floppy mess...

    These aren't even worth displaying. Which is too bad, Puzzler was my favorite gestault, even moreso than the Transformer ones (though Computron and Abominous came REALLY close).

    Not for sale, but I have a couple. By far my favourite is Klaw. He's just so.. odd.

    I love the old MR stuff...esp. the items that never made it to the U.S. I might have a few extra boxed MR Winner items to let go...like the large 'race track' Robo Shooter Gaiden and a few of the cars that work on that track. I also have a boxed MR Tank...but he's missing the front mounted laser guns.

    Other than that, I like to hold onto the items as they aren't the easiest to find nowadays.

    Die-cast + transforming toy = winning combination. I like Gobots too. I have MIB Puzzler, Super Leader-1 and Super Cy-Kill.

    I've got loads of Gobots. I've always wanted Loco too - got one off Rework's table at Botcon along with Screwhead (or, as he is now known in my collection, One Twist).

    I just nabbed a bunch off eBay...got Puzzler for $20! I think I did okay. I've also got Loco, Screw Head, and two Japanese Machine Robo Rescue figures on the way. :) 

    Now I'm just trying to find Bentwing, Bolt, Super Spay-C, Tux, and Flip Top. Leader-1, Cop-Tur, and Cy-Kill would be nice, too, but I know those are the most sought-after.

    Wow, that's damn impressive. You must've raked it in when you sold 'em.

    Sold them all for $100 I think, which was pretty cheap.
    Try not to think about it much since I miss the crap out of them :lol 

    Kept all my Gobots though, anything from the 80's I have a hard time getting rid of. I know alot of people hate the Gobots but I LOVE them, especially those power suits

    I hear ya...I used to have a massive TF collection, but had to sell the whole thing when I moved about 4 years ago. I'm slowly rebuilding it, but I'll never get all of those gestalts again. :cry 

    Figures...you've got a few of the GoBots I'm looking for. ;)

    An incredibly rare gem was on Yahoo Japan recently: MR-747. It looked to be in minty condition too. Apparently I wasn't the only one wanting it since it ended at $317. That's the second one I've ever seen. The first surprisingly showed up in a mixed Transformers lot on eBay.

    Anyone here have one?

    I just bought a load from Skywelker. Super Spacey, Bug bite, Zeemon, Cop-tur (no blades), Scooter, Dive dive, Fitor, Waterwalk (who's a "KO"), Spoons (also a "KO"), ResQ, Night ranger, Heat seeker, and blue Leader-1. And they are most in great shape. But I used the seriously broken Bugbite and ResQ that I already had to fix the ones I got.
