    Looks great, but I don't if I'll be able to get it. I still have a lot of the original ones.

    The designer of these technical specification cards, C. Wallace on TFW2005, put these up for sale directly in the Junkion Exchange a couple of days ago. He offered a price of $24.95 for the first ten sets sold.

    So what are the chances if these sell well we'll see releases for other years and/or groups beyond the '84 set?

    Regardless, preordered. Always loved the tech specs, and never had a complete set of the '84 releases.

    Color printing isn't horrible, but it's not dirt cheap either. They probably ran it on a bigger sheet for multiples, then cut them down with a paper cutter. Quite a bit of work really - design work to get the specs into a file and arranged to print on whatever paper stock they chose, the actual printing, then the cutting.*

    * I work on digital color presses.

    I could go for 1:1 reproductions of the G1 full cards for the carded figures. I had KO cassettes and sold them off, but I kept the cards because I like the art so much and they drove so much nostalgia for me.

    I like that they're all the same size. It always bugged me how all the cards were different sizes.

    However.... Nope. Not interested. I could buy 3 Generations toys for that price.

    Im only 8 away of having all the original ones. I might get the set to hang on my toy wall.
    Is there any plans beyond 87?

    $35.00 for the complete 1984 set. That makes them $1.25 each which isnt bad. There are 28 total TF in 84.

    If it's all the '84s, even fake ones would run higher than that as a set.

    A pity Skywarp has all of his color discrepensies (black feet and leg jets, lavender tail wings).

    If the 3 planes have their correct numbers, I'm in.
    • Starscream's true graph is on Skywarp's spec.
    • Thundercracker's true graph is on Starscream's spec.
    • Skywarp's true graph is on Thundercracker's spec.
