    Hey guys,

    I'm back begging for picture contributions again for another Source Article in the near future, this time it's mail-away G1 Transformers I'm after. I'd be looking for the following:

    - Boxed G1 Reflector (authentic, not recent KO) + mail away offer paperwork scans
    - Boxed Japanese Omnibots with and without artwork + any offer scans
    - Mailaway G1 US Mirage, Sunstreaker, Jazz, Thundercracker, Omnibots in package
    - Movie Certificate Megatron and Optimus Prime in package
    - Canadian mailaway paperwork and sealed items
    - Japanese G1 Gnaw MIB
    - Japanese G1 Dinobots in US package with no rubsign
    - Anything watch related

    I'm not necessarily looking for things like UK Weetabix Stunticons/Aerialbots or US Cookie Crisp Jazz as they are more promotional brand offers, not straight-up mail-away promos from Hasbro and Takara.

    I'll take anything that I haven't listed that you think would be interesting!

    Remember, if you would like to contribute, please make sure the pictures are your own and that you don't mind having them watermarked "TFsource". Also please do let me know how you'd like to be credited!

    Thanks so much for your time again guys, all the best
    Maz

    I can hook you up with pics of an unused authentic Reflector in box. Do you want to include Cookie Crisp Jazz in this feature?

    I'm good for Reflector, but I'd love Cookie Crisp Jazz. Is there any distinguishing paperwork with the mailer box to identify it as the promotional Jazz? I suppose if you have the original mailer and paper techspec it has to be the real deal. I think only Mirage, Sunstreaker and Wheeljack were offered as Hasbro mailaway Autobot cars right?

    All the best

    It isn't possible to see in the bundle of paper to tell if a paper tech spec is tucked away in there. I'm definitely not planning to open it to find out :)  One cool thing about this piece is that it is one of the very first Cookie Crisp Jazz's produced. On later pieces in the run they put on one set of no-logo stickers on the doors, but on the earliest ones you can tell that they covered the stickers on a regular production Jazz with an extra set of no-logo door stickers. You can see the doubled up stickers on the close-up shot.

    As for crediting me for the pics, you can just mention it is from my collection if you want. It doesn't really matter :)

    Ohhh that is nice! Double stickering is really cool. Thanks for contributing this, I really appreciate it. How would you like to be credited, "bradforj" only ?

    You're very welcome :)  bradforj@TFW2005 would be great, just in case anyone wants to locate me online.

    I know you mentioned you are now good on Reflector, but do you still need mail-in Optimus, Megatron, and the Omnibots? I've got opened and unused Megs and OP, and my Omnibots are MISP.

    I've got a sealed camshaft, I think a bagged Downshift (maybe opened) and a sunstreaker (opened). Just let me know if you need the opened ones. I will take a picture of camshaft tonight if you still need it by the time I get home from work

    Okay, Round 2 :)  I can get pics of Optimus in a few days when I can get over to my dad's house where it is stored. Notice the different quality of bag used on Downshift and the lack of a protective bag for the chrome weapons. I'm guessing they did several runs of these for the promotion, which spanned multiple years.

    Wow gorgeous items guys. Whoamidri, I'd love Sunstreaker pics if you can upload in the next couple of hours? Joe those Megs pics are perfect too much appreciated, don't worry about Prime. As for Omnis I'm also sorted, think I even have a Canadian one pictured!

    All the best
