    My mother gave me this huge box of old photo albums from my childhood because all the pictures remind her of her second ex husband, so now I get to keep them all. Fortunately for me as I browsed through them, I found a lot of sweet pics of me and my little brother as children opening up and playing with our Transformers presents! I'm talking vintage stuff here, circa 1985-1987.

    Among the treasures you will find herein are a pair of Ultra Magnus briefs, sported by my brother, a 1985 birthday cake, and lots of MISB TF toys that will likely make some collectors drool. Also, a look at Optimus Prime with his helmet off.

    I'm the older/taller boy in all the pictures, the other kid is my little brother. Anyone else have any pictures like this to share?

    Aw, I remember those days. To bad I don't have any pictures of TF related stuff. But I do have a picture of my older brother building a vintage 1970's or early 80's Tamiya RC cars. You can see him working on one on the table, and a stack of them under the table including the old Tamiya Lamborghini Countach RC car. Great pic................
    But sadly, no TF pictures.

    Nice - this should be a good thread.

    I gotta go find that picture of me in droopy-ass long-johns, holding my sweet Devastator giftset...

    :)  You bet!

    Actually, that particular Prime I'm holding is long gone. The left arm and the bumper ended up broken, among other things. I replaced it just a year or so later from my cousin's yard sale. The G1 Ratchet recently went to a friend of mine from our local NC group as a gift. The blue Go Bot is long gone, too. The rest (including the paperwork) are still in my collection :D

    They are not whores. They are simply free spirited women.

    And awesome pics, guys. Yours at least aren't damaged through years of neglect. Mine spent nine years in a dank basement after one of my mother's divorces.
