    Hey Guys,

    I finally have my first G1!

    So I'm guessing I need to get 25th Anniversery Prime a friend (or foe)


    Any suggestions on fairly cheap but good G1 figures?

    G1 arent usually cheap if you want a good condition figure but most G1 toys are cool

    I remember my first G1.

    Reissue Starscream, one of the Takara ones.

    What a nice little figure, though his shoulders are kinda loose-ish.

    And damn I want 25th Prime.

    I'm not sure how scarce/expensive the figure is, but I can recommend Soundwave.:)

    Unless going for straight vintage, shouldn't be too bad with the Classics/Commemorative Series Soundwave from TRU.

    for anyone that wants 25th anni. prime, I'd suggest going to amazon. they seem to be deep discounting it.

    Get one TRU Soundwave reissue, it comes with Ravage and Laserbeak.

    Lets see, fairly cheap but good g1 figures, you have some limited choices:
    1. g1 kup, he's really cheap, and he's a really nice figure
    2. Insecticons, you can get all 3 fairly cheap, and who doesn't like insecticons?
    3. minibots, other than the selected few(bumblejumper, bumblebee, etc), all of them are fairly cheap
    4. Monsterbots, believe me those are good toys, the only expensive one is Grotusque. Doublecross and Repugnus are cheap, and I have to say Doublecross is an exceptional well build toy(And fun too) The only problem is they never showed up in the Cartoon.
    5. Any g1 toys which was reissued before will be cheaper(though still tend to be more expensive than the ones I mentioned above)

    Soundwave is awesome, the Encore one is still affordable-ish too. One of the best G1 figs in my opinion.

    Every Transformer collector should own at least one G1 character.

    my first G1 was an original, fresh off the Truck in 1985 Thundercracker.
    G1s are pricey, so i agree that you should get a TRU reissue G1 figure.

    or an Encore. I still like my MIB Encore Ratchet.
