    So I casually mentioned to a coworker where I am interning that I was into collection TF. He's in his early 60's and said, "Hey, I got a ton of those from when my son was young in the 80's. You want them?"

    Of course I went to his place to check them out. Everything was in amazing condition. He wanted $85 for it all. This is what I got:

    OP is completed, Devastator is complete, Soundwave has LB and both his bats, Perceptor is complete, Jetfire is complete the Voltrons are in GREAT condition. I'd say this is a good haul. Wouldn't you?

    Most of the items are 1982ish Takaras, so they have lots of diecast. I just need to sort through the accessories and match them to the bots. Anybody know of any good sites for that?

    Jetfire has Bandai stamped on him. WTF? Why is that?

    You know you're jealous of this deal.

    Tfu.info is gonna be your best bet for identifying the weapons. Jetfire was a Bandai Valk that Takara used for Jetfire. There's more to that story, but that's the jist of it. Nice haul and super deal. Congrats.

    EDIT: Oh Sh!t!! I just realized the Sunstreaker is the Takara or GIGI red version. That just sweetens an already sweet haul.

    Nice haul.....espically the Diaclone Sunstreaker. As far as good sites to go to for matching parts... Transformerland.com works for me also just to help you out a bit there's some He-Man weapons mixed in there.

    Good luck

    Why? I haven't done the research on the pieces yet, but you could save me sometime by explaining why that's good.

    Just Jetfire alone there looks like he's worth $85. Or Mirage, even, seeing that he's in one piece.

    BTW, Jetfire has a Bandai trademark stamp because he's a Bandai mold, formerly from their Macross line. Hasbro licensed the mold to fill out the TF line back in the day.

    Jealous? Not at all. What was your address again?

    RED SUNSTREAKER?! You bastard. Sunstreaker was my very first transformable toy bought with hard-earned money back in 1984 when I was eleventy-teen years old. I've since vowed that some day, when I have the money saved up, I'm going on a holy quest to have one of each color version the mold was ever available in. Red is one of my favorites. The police color scheme is a very, VERY close second.

    That is an absolutely amazing beautiful haul.

    I still wish my sister's ex had kept his promise of giving me all his old TFs. He had pretty much everything from 84-86, all damn near perfect. Bastard.
