    Went into my dads attic this christmas helping him put stuff away. Up there I find everything that was supposed to have been thrown away by my mother years ago. I was completely overwhelmed at how much was up there. I found my entire complete loose Starwars collection, 2 Visionaries and 4 MISB Centurians. Only crappy thing is I couldn't fit it in the car on the trip home. I found all my old kids books, alternate ending books, 2 unused coloring books and a complete 1-54 issue Transformers comics plus some side series. Christmas sucked until I went up in the attic.

    Very nice. I should get around to digging through my parents storage to see if mine are still around.

    Thats awesome man. I had a similar experience back in early 2000 when I found all my MIB G1 collection from my childhood up in our attic. The only bad part about it is I vividly remember having a MIB Galvatron and Ironhide in my collection as well that seem to have vanished and I've always wondered what the heck happened to them...

    That's freaking cool! The best I could do this year is find a G1 Freeway in a pile of toys at my gf's mom's house. But she let me keep it! Now I just have to convince my brother's mom-in-law to give me that Galvatron and Ultra Magnus I saw collecting dust in her storage shed.

    If I recall, there was a blue guy, a green guy, and a yellow one and one I didn't see buried at the bottom of the box.

    All I really wanted to find was my Tech Spec thats missing for Fort Max and his folded up box, but I know that my parents must have tossed it. This was just as good though.

    Some of them have a little 45 vinyl record in them, some have tapes. I have neither a tape player nor a record player in my house though. The racing one is great, there are nice illustrations in it.
