    I was digging through stuff at my Grandmas, and I was..STUNNED at what I found.

    1x Incomplete Powermasters Prime w/broken peg
    1x Incomplete G1 Skorponok w/broken stinger
    1x Incomplete G1 Double Dealer
    1x Targetmaster Haywire
    1x Incomplete G2 green Snarl
    1x Incomplete G2 Terradive
    1x Beast Metals Dinobot

    And a bunch of minicons!

    Damn...holy shit. I'm not a G1 collector but this is like finding buried gold. I wanna complete these guys and have them in on my collection or sell them.

    So they aren't yours? Maybe you should find out whose they belong to before essentially swiping them.

    Oh no they're mine. But I thought years and years ago they were given away or sold. They were packed away in Power Rangers toys I also thought I lost. Evidently it was dad who decided that the biggest and coolest of my toys would be kept and he never told me 'bout it!

    I wonder if I can fix the Skorponok stinger deal. I'd like to get a whole tail section to replace, but worse come worse I'll get a stinger and try to fix it up myself. I think that's the biggest winner of what I found.

    Oh yea, I have no idea how I came about with Targetmaster Haywire. I never had a Blurr and I can't even recall coming across one. Quite a mystery!

    Pics will come up soon!!

    Unfortunately a piece of Scorponok's foot is broken off. I'm not a value collector but that puts me into Frowntown for sure.

    They're yours, yet you call Micromasters, Targetmasters, and a combiner tape "minicons". Minicons did not exist in G1.

    I know next to nothing about the later G1 stuff. I labeled them from what I thought were the appropriate terms. Feel free to correct me of course. I'm always willing to learn about stuff! :thumb 

    When I was a kid I never paid attention to all the sublines. To me they were all just "Transformers" and I never really bothered to learn the differences between the sublines. I didn't do my research before doing the posts. It was me pretty much just posting about it as I came home from Grandma's due to excitement!

    I concur.

    I have the red variant of him, but not the green for my G2 collection, yet. There is the red, green, and silver. Green is rarest of the three variants.

    Good finds!!

    The silver g2 ones are MUCH harder to find, but the green is definately number two

    And that is relevant how? I know of a few G1 collector locally that call their Micromasters, Targetmasters, Powermasters, Headmasters, and even the Cassette bots, Mini-Cons.

    Hasbro has re-purposed the Mini-Con name to encompass them as of WFC and the Exodus book, Soundwave's minions are now Mini-Cons.

    Great find OP, I'd love to go to my grandmother's house and find a Powermaster Optimus.
