    I've been collecting for about 18 months now and steadily built up a small, but modest, collection of G1 Japanese reissues and vintage. All the stuff pictured is MIB (stickers unused) or MISB. Hope you like what you see!

    Thanks for the kind words guys!

    Trypticon is one of my favourite figures in there, and I was quite lucky to find that one. Others I'd looked at had either the box falling to pieces or parts were missing... or both!! This one has unapplied stickers and the small accessories are still sealed in the factory baggie :)

    Devy is pretty nice too... case fresh & factory sealed :D

    Nice VSZ, looks like it is in great condition! All of your items look very good, it seems like you took your time to get quality pieces. For only 18 months, I'd say you are doing great!

    Is the VSZ sealed or MIB, I'm looking to buy one at the moment, does anyone know the going rate for one MIB and MISB?

    That is a gorgeous collection sir. I just got a (gorgeous) complete Trypticon for the first time a few weeks ago and your MIB one puts him to shame.

    Lol, I wish it was misb!! Nah, mine is mib (stickers unapplied). I think I paid about $500 for it about 6 months ago... I'd imagine a misb set would go for four figures easy, even in Japan!

    Thanks for the kind words :) 

    Only got mine a few weeks ago, and he is awesome! I wish I'd had this when I was a kid, but he was never available in the UK. I've been tempted to rip open the baggie to set him up properly with his accessories, but I think I'd regret it!

    I didn't realize you were from the Uk, I'm from Bristol. it's good to hear from a fellow UK Takara collector.
    Also using the Imagine logo for your avatar, didn't they port Dragon Ninja to the Amiga.

    Aye, from bright and sunny Staffordshire :) 

    Yeah, Imagine did port Dragon Ninja! They ported a lot of classic arcade games to home computers back in the day!

    All the vintage stuff is direct from Japan. The reissues either came from sellers in the States, Kapow or the odd UK seller on eBay.

    I'll certainly do my best to update the photos when I get something noteworthy!
