    Well as I started taking heavier interest in boxed tf collecting around December, I made a goal for the oh so expensive misb element of getting all 3 of the main insecticons and as of Friday I achieved it! I'm happy :rock , just thought I'd share some pictures. Shrapnel isn't misb he's mosc/b (sealed on bubble) and Bombshell has almost half of one of the pieces of tape missing but still holding on. The Kickback is the newest one I just got.

    Those Insecticons are fuggin nice man , congrats on getting those..
    I got 3 sealed G1s . one is Targetmaster Pointblank , my brother found him i the trash , he's a garbage man lol.. Im thinking the person had bought him for a gift back in the 80's but forgot about him and then finally found him during cleaning and just chucked him, He's got a good home now lol..
    Then while cleaning out a basement at his motherinlaws house he came across a box of christmas gifts that were still wraped and forgotten about . In the mix was a G1 Smokescreen and G1 Insecticon Ransack.. Smokescreen is near case fresh but Ransack looks to have had something heavy sitting on hm all these years and the box got a little dented but nothing major.. MISB is so nice to have aint it :>

    I agree. MISB G1 figures are a sight to behold. Alot better looking sealed than newer tf lines. I'm not MISBer per se, but I have no qualms in keeping G1 stuff MISB or MIB.

    That's some nice stuff right there. Been thinking about going after those myself, but I tend to prefer the japanese boxes.

    That's pretty sweet. I've thought about doing sealed g1, but it's really hard for me to keep things sealed. :)

    Nice hauls man,
    You can remove that big pricetag off of the Bombshell box with a cotton tip and some cleaning spirit. Just let it soak for a minute and you can peel it off easily. Without damaging any of the box itself.(try it on a 'less important ' box first, cause you got a lot of grades. Mine is octane based. a drop should evaporate within seconds and leave no traces to the box). Good luck!!!
