    I know there are some amazing collections out there, but does anybody actually have a complete set of Japanese G1 figures? If not, how close are the biggest bigshots?

    Here's a look at my japanese collection. I finally got Deszaras breastforce Lion and Eagle and Tail/shield. Now I am currently looking for an original gun. I also need Star Saber Blade. Now I got a Dinoking on the way. :)

    Assuming we're only talking about Japanese only figures and not including Japanese version of US released bots as well, I've got a pretty good dent.
    Star Saber
    Victory Leo
    Road Ceaser
    Dezsarus
    Liokaiser
    Trizer
    Loafer (will be here soon)
    Doubleclouder
    Sixknight
    Greatshot
    Ranger
    2 of the sparkabot repaints
    Go shooter
    Minerva
    Hydra
    Overlord

    Probably at least as many that I'm missing, but I'm pretty proud of that bunch.

    As for anyone outside Japan having all of them, I'm sure there's a few people. Dragonclaw I believe has all but 2, Trizer and I think one of the tapes.

    I need:
    Autofire
    Lion
    Battle Patrol (both versions)
    Battle Gaia
    Guard City
    Sixbuilder
    Sixturbo
    Sixtrain

    I don't count twincast, since I will get the reissue. I also traded away my dinobots, thundercracker and skywarp for an xbox 360.

    Octane: I am desperate for that battle patrol of yours. Would you trade it "plus something else" for a C10 loose complete Greatshot?

    You can see Artfire + Loafer IN Grotusque here:
    [​IMG]

    Grandus is here:
    [​IMG]

    Gurafi is on Bravers shoulder and Noizu is between Skyfall and Tap Out in the front:
    [​IMG]

    AND if you really don't believe I have Trizor, I can snap a pic. I am just lazy. :thumb 

    Oh, and Nightscream:

    I am not sure exactly why, but I feel offended by that offer. Greatshot is such a POS, I wouldn't trade a Wheelie for him.
    Besides the Battle Patrol is hella easy to get, just pricey.

    Yeah Grandus is awesome. Well worth the $300 I spent. I just wish I could get Spiners stickers for the hood somewhere. :banghead:

    I've got:
    Star Saber
    Victory Leo
    Dezaras

    Euro releases:
    Overlord
    Brainmaster trio (plus about half the Road Caesar components, namely head chest and one leg shield, fists taken from a Landcross KO)

    Others:
    "Testron" Liokaiser
    Taiwanese Landcross (I assume it is Taiwanese, exact same quality as a Taiwanese Brave KO I've got. Good quality though)

    Braves:
    Gouryu (Dai Atlas)
    Hiryu (Sonic Bomber)
    Dagbase (Grandus)

    Pretty insignificant compared to the awesome lineups listed here, but I'm happy with those I have.

    Here is why I got what I got:

    #1 I started collecting in 1995, when G1's were cheapo, at flea Markets and such.
    #2 I made good use of Botcon 1997, when stuff was still cheap.
    #3 Acquiring rarities becomes easier by know of them and becoming friends with those who know where to get them.

    See, Tony Preto is the person to blame for me collecting today. I contacted him to sell all my stuff, then he told me about all that I missed....Then the hunt was on. He is the #1 person I thank for his help until this day.

    There are a couple of Japanese Micromaster sets that are a slightly different color than their American counterparts that I have been too lazy to track down up to this point... other than those, I have all of Japanese G1. You just have to take it slow - there's nothing out there that's impossible to find.

    The most trouble I've ever had locating something were those blasted all-white Headmaster heads. Those took me about six years to finally land.

    Not counting reissues (God Ginrai) all I have is a MISB Laster and an incomplete Overlord. Not complainin' though, happy to have what I have, as Japanese G1 isn't priority. :)
