    I have a sorta-kinda unique business proposition for any serious Transformers collectors over the age of 55. "Serious" is definitely open to interpretation, but in general, I'm thinking of folks who have collections that are large (>1,000), old (G1/G2), rare (Lucky Draws, Japanese stuff, etc.), or a combination of the three.

    If you are this kinda person, please PM me! Alternatively, if you know anyone like this, please pass my contact information along. If they're not on the boards, please contact me for my email.

    Thanks much!

    Good luck finding a TF Collector around that age ........ I definently have to say that a Majority of serious collectors are inbetween their mid 20's to their late 30's .

    If you don't mind us asking, why are you looking for such a demographic?

    If you're between the ages of 55 and 85, and you collect Transformers, call 1-800-234-4567 for life insurance on your toys.

    Really? That's strange, I woulda thought that a property targeted at boys age 8 and up that started in the early 80s would have a HUGE following among older folks.

    Yeah, dude, I know I'll need luck. Or, y'know, just some time and effort and research, like throwing a post on a message board dedicated to that franchise. But thanks for your insight.

    Seriously? That's totally close enough. PM coming!
