    I used to collect these as a kid.... then started on the reissues... which I had to sell :(  But I saw something on ebay in november... and its started me off again.

    Most are "fresh out the attic junk box" - I've not cleaned them up yet... and need more than a few accessories now - but onto the pics - I've not put the accessories in with the majority of them as I've got them stored away in little bags for now...

    Anyway - onto the pics

    Group shot... I don't actually have room to display them yet.. so they live in storage -

    [​IMG]

    Apart from this guy... Wanted this for ..... 20 odd years? Now I've got 'im... and I've almost got all the bits... just one gun to go

    [​IMG]

    Armed and ready for battle!

    [​IMG]

    Micromaster Countdown base... Got it for £5 ($10) with extra bits too

    [​IMG]

    Including this little guy :) 
    [​IMG]

    Pretender Beasts lot

    [​IMG]

    Classic Autobot Cars...

    [​IMG]

    The Movie bad guys.... though a bit tatty Galvatron lights and sounds work great

    [​IMG]

    Targetmasters, Headmasters and powermasters... Darkwing is in a terrible state but dreadwind looks good combined

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Original Soundwave and Grimlock - both are almost complete - just need a couple of missles for grimmy

    [​IMG]

    Autobot mini bots... though I have to say Wheelie is a terrible looking toy in my opinion....

    [​IMG]

    Ultra Magnus and friends... does everyone have a twin-twist and topspin ??

    [​IMG]

    Sky-lynx ..who's tail end is missing... Battle trap and i think its roadbuster? Can't remember lol

    [​IMG]

    Metroplex.... Bit dirty and missing some bits.. but is intact - my original metroplex of 20 years ago suffered from movie jazz injuries... legs fell off! Sob

    [​IMG]

    Was really pleased with this guy... G1 Shockwave... lights don't work - might have to get the soldering iron out cause the LED does and the sounds work :) 

    [​IMG]

    Not sure if his legs should be extended... but they are a bit loose so posing him this way

    [​IMG]

    Micromasters...

    [​IMG]

    My TRU reissues .. and takara inferno - MIB but not sealed... they need played with too!!

    [​IMG]

    One of my faves from ages ago... Overlord... incomplete but I'll be hunting for bits for many months/years to come...

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    The start of the combiner collection..... missing feet .. fists.. arms legs (bots not broken) but its a start...

    [​IMG]

    Silverbolt ... nice and clean and chrome still shining.. but he's a bit lonely lol

    [​IMG]

    Afterburner and scalor.... Sure they will have company soon!

    [​IMG]

    Combaticons... bruticus is currently h-armless lol

    [​IMG]

    Hun-grr ...again all on his lonesome...

    [​IMG]

    Complete stunticons... Missing this feet... hands... groin plate... etc etc have most of the large guns and small guns though

    [​IMG]

    Defensor - again missing feet and arms etc... but most of the smaller guns I have!

    [​IMG]
    So thats what I've got so far.... Is a start anyway - I'm going to concentrate on cleaning them up and getting the bits that are missing before going for more bots... well thats the plan... I never seem to stick to plans though! lol

    Hope you like!

    nice collection. no doubt you will gather far more than you ever expected! I currently do not have twintwist or topspin, though I want them of course. And I am very jealous of your Fort Max. my wife says I can't have one cuz I don't have any place to put it!

    some day....sigh

    NIce collection so far, yeah i have about 4 sets of tp & tt, but i'd gladly trade them for a overlord haha.

    Start scouring the junkion exchange and you'll find those combiner parts in no time
    hint hint (shameless plug)

    Good luck and happy hunting!

    Seeing a collection like this makes me wish my G1 toys weren't up north in my parents' garage. Someday I will go reclaim them!

    Nice collection, brings back so many memories for me.

    Loads of others which are long gone but now replaced by new ones ... lots of good memories attached to certain figures...
