    My mom is going through a huge spring/summer cleaning spurt right now so i went over there to grab some furniture she was throwing out and went through some of the boxes of crap she wanted to throw out.

    found these from my childhood

    and the most exciting one:

    1984 transformers puzzle. The box is in pretty rought shape, but the puzzle itself is in pretty good condition. (this one must have belonged to one of my older brothers as I would have only been a year old when this was purchased)

    There was also an Astroboy puzzle i kept, mostly cuz it was one of my favs as a kid.

    I went back last night very briefly and picked up a Transformers colouring book, although a bunch of pages are coloured from being kids lol. Hoping to find more goodies.

    will hopefully be posting up the colouring book i just found as well (mentioned in the first post)


    told my mom if she finds anything associated with transformers, or video game stuff to set it aside that id take it.


    im hopnig to go through the bins upon bins of toys in the basement soon. Don't think Ill find much for TFs in there as those would have been in my older brothers bins (hope they didnt throw them out)

    Its the precursor to "FULLY INTERACTIVE MENUS" we now find on almost all of our DVDS.

    This is a piece of history.
