    This is my growing collection of high-end G1 US release stuff. I don’t have a lot of figures numbers wise but in the last 15 years of collecting I have located some truly amazing individual pieces. I specifically love collecting Hot Rod Stuff, Gift Sets, and Mail In items. I have a lot of my stuff individually photographed and added to my Superstar Collector page. I will eventually get around to adding pictures of everything and I will post updates to this thread each time I add an item. Nothing is for sale, please do not ask!

    If you haven’t been to Superstar Collector yet take a look. It’s a pretty cool site to show off whatever you collect. You can tailor your collections to fit the exact thing you collect for instance a collection of a specific figure or line. I am helping the developers try to get some interest from Transformers fans and I would love to get your feedback on using the site from a Transformers collector perspective.

    Anyways that’s my plug for the site now back to my collection…. Please don’t post AFA hate . I understand everyone has different opinions about AFA but that’s not why I posted my collection here. Just to calm the haters down everything I own that is AFA graded I also own a loose version that I can transform and play with.

    Here are links to my favorite collections:

    • Toys>Action Figures>Transformers

    • Toys>Action Figures>Transformers>G1>US>Mail In

    • Toys>Action Figures>Transformers>G1>US>Gift Sets

    holy sh*t. It's easy to fall into that "quantity" collecting trap. Dude, keep up with what you're doing. A focused, CLEAN, collection is awesome.

    Jeebus, those are some nice jems there. I was just wondering the other day if anyone had actually graded a MISB Reflector. I guess I have my answer. An excellent collection.

    Thanks Supersquad.

    I had some time to add my loose Defensor Gift Set to SSC. I am the second owner of this guy and I got it from the same eBay seller that had the loose Menasor Gift Set. You can click below to see more pictures....more posts to come:)

    That G1 MIB Targetmaster Hotrod in that condition is one of the most hard to find item now.... I wondered how much you bought it back then? Because I spent a lot on it almost a decade ago on ebay in similar pristine condition as yours.

    Congratulations on an impressive collection.

    Well, I am IMPRESSED!!

    I dig that you have a graded Reflector, and an 85 grade to boot. Excellent pieces with the Seacon and Technobot giftsets.

    Thanks for the Kind words...and I gotta say your collection is pretty ridiculous, it seems you have put a crapload of time into it...especially jealous of those sealed mail away ominbots..i've got a soft spot for the G1 mail away stuff.

    On a more important note I sincerely thank you for your military service. I'm assuming you're stationed at Fort Hood? Where you around last year when the shootings happened?

    I finally got pictures up of my newest addition. This is the first Reflector I had ever seen that still had its outer brown mailer box with it. Many more pics on my Superstar Collector page feel free to take a look.

    Wow, that's the nicest Reflector I've seen (or not seen due to the packaging? :lol ). Having that mailer box is certainly a find, in addition to the Reflector itself!

    Now that you got a new Reflector, I'll gladly take that AFA 85 Reflector off your hands! :lol 

    Very Nice.
