    My parents are moving to a small place soon, so they were thinking of having a garage sale. Knowing I had a large amount of "vintage" TFs in a bin in storage, I nearly yelled "NOOOOO!" and jumped in front of them and said I'd look through all my toys to separate the stuff worth throwing away from the stuff brimming with sentimental value.

    Well, amongst other insanely awesome childhood toys (including a couple old school WWF figures, including a Jake "The Snake" Roberts figure with spring-loaded punching action), these are the TFs I managed to scrounge up and take pics of. They're not all cool, but I'm curious to know what a few of the non-obvious ones are, especially the small ones.

    lol, I'd love to know why this Constructicon has its feet on backwards.

    And I'm especially curious to know which TF this is, and what's up with the, er, modest package. (yah, I know he's missing a piece on it, but it's still pretty darned hilarious)

    Oh, and I found a bunch of Happy Meal toys, some I don't even remember having.

    Plus a couple OG Beast Wars figs, along with an Onslaught without any of its accessories.

    I also found a couple Brave figures I bought when I was in Korea like ten years ago, at least I think they are. One's a huge police truck thing that comes with a police car, which forms its head and chest, and one's an airplane gestalt, a three figure combiner of two airplanes and one space shuttle.

    The best part is there's still a couple boxes in storage I haven't gotten to yet, so I get to come back to my parents' house next week to discover more hidden treasures and update this thread. :)

    My Slapdash is in the same (*snicker*) condition. He should have the front wings and nose of the racecar there as a sort of belt/underoos thing. He also had a powermaster/engine, a yellow "engine" thing if you wanted the PM out and about, and his gun.

    I really like the guy... I should go hunt the missing pieces off evilbay.

    Vroom and Thunderwing.. nice finds man!

    Yeah, Lube and Slapdash.. I have him, but I jsut need to get a spoiler part for him to finally be complete. Besides the Powermaster, the front fender that becomes the "Underoos" there's also a yellow piece that covers the powermaster slot that is shaped like an engine block, that mounts as a small shield in robot mode.

    Yeah, I remember having everything except Lube, the powermaster. I don't ever remember even having the Lube. I do remember that the last time I saw all the loose pieces was 12 years ago when I was in elementary school.

    And yeah, the Thunderwing is pretty awesome, always was my fav toy as a kid, but the shell's missing it's wings. Vroom's shell's also missing a rear wheel.

    Oh, I also found a couple of those TF figures that were more like GI Joes than TFs, if you know what I'm talking about. Or rather, I found a couple of them in pieces; found a Blaster's head and legs, but no torso or arms.

    The spoiler on Slapdash is really cool - it can mount on the robot's back, and has a slot that takes the Powermaster, allowing you to have the yellow engine on the chest, and the Powermaster on his back. A really nice design feature. He's the only Powermaster who has this, most of the rest just have a panel that lifts up to cover the slot when the guy isn't in there.
    Mine's missing his gun, but I've got the rest of him. Great, and fun, TF that one.

    Nice find on the rest of the stuff - though you've got me on the Bonecrusher.
