    I was going through the attic and found my G1 Jetfire in dusty old box and it is still in good condition. I thought it was thrown away decades ago.

    Dude that's hilarious!!! Just a few weeks ago while visiting family in Pittsburgh, I came across an original Stay Puft Marshmallow Man in a local comic shop, and that's all I could exclaim to my wife... "MAN I wish I could find mine!"

    p.s. Congrats on the Jetfire find!

    A couple years ago my mom was doing some cleaning up in their attic and she found some original Star Wars The Empire Strikes Back figures that are still MOSC.Apparently she hid them up there for us for Christmas and totally forgot about them.I can only imagine what else is up there.Maybe some old minty G1 figures.

    I had 50+ g1 figures as a kid but I gave them to my cousin. If I could get those back I would be estatic.

    Great find on th jet fire (one of my favorites of all time)

    Congrats man! :) 


    I think the best find I have is a non-TF, a 1977 Darth Vader. I thought it was lost and one day, my sister gave me a bunch of old toys my nephew has outgrown, to look over if I'm interested in any of them. I saw the Darth Vader among old Tomica and Hot Wheels diecast cars. It was missing it's sword and cape and has playwear, but I'm just glad I got it back. I don't know how my nephew got hold of it, but my theory is that my dad gave it to him thinking I no longer wanted it.
