    The backstory: My birthday was last monday. My GF kept hiding her presents for me so I wouldn't see them. She wrapped all these up (yeah, I know tape on these!! zomg! but they didn't leave a mark!) At first she gave me the Prime helmet which rocks. This, I was not prepared for.

    She found these in her Grandma's attic. Her grandma was going to sell them in a yard sale. The rest is history as it occured August 27th, 2007 around 5:15pm.

    Collector's Case: I honestly thought she took this from my house and put presents in. But no! There's MTMTE!

    Is this a Gobot? Looks like he's part of a combiner!

    More Gobots? Also, notice the RED Constructicon decoy in the back. The UBER-RARE RED Constructicon decoy. This collector's case is a treasure chest!

    What're these fabric images of the TF's? I've never seen them before... oh and a cool Megatron 'eraser' although I never used them as such.

    NOW FOR THE BIG GIFTS!

    Headstrong: The guy in the worst shape of the bunch. His box is literally taped together in that non sealed way. Figure is mint, accs' are all there... box is kinda ded but still an awesome piece!

    [​IMG]

    Rampage: The best of the bunch. Box is still SEALED on one side and has no tears and is in great shape. Bubble is still in there as well as the glow-in-the-dark poster and all acc's.

    [​IMG]

    Close-up of the sealedness, sorry about the blurryness:

    Damn G1's were expensive!

    [​IMG]

    Jetfire: MIB all pieces included (along with gun clip! hooray!) More pics available upon request. Flap is pretty excellent the box has some dents and a tear in the bottom corner.

    [​IMG]

    Shockwave: MIB and complete. The box is ripped in two spots but the flap is pretty solid!

    Neeeeeedless to say: BEST BDAY GIFTS EVAR! Totally cost to her: $0. Total eBay possiblities: Any idea? I'm not selling them but I feel like I could def make some money on these bad boys!

    That is one awesome haul man congrats!

    Take more pic's of Jetfire and Shockwave as those look absolutely dead mint, definitely worth a pretty penny there, though I myself could not bare to part with them if it was me.

    Wow, that's a spectacular haul. Now you just need to find out who in the GF's family was the Transformers fan and rub it in their noses.

    Yeah on the off chance she finds more G1's in her grandma's attic heheh.

    And they were her uncle's I guess. His mom worked at a toy store while he was growing up so he had sooo many he didn't get the chance to play with them all. :D 

    And for you S.CA I'll get more pics!

    The yellow Lamborghini is from Puzzler, forget his name. The other two small bots are from Takaras Robolinx/Robotech changers, think ancient Stickfas.

    The iron-ons were the promo for minibots and combiners after minispies and before decoys, around the same time as the posters.
