    Hi all,

    I'm new here and wanted to introduce myself and share my collection with you. These are all G1 Transformers I either purchased brand new or received as a birthday present as a kid and managerd to hang to all these years. I started collecting them after a classmate brought in a red Diaclone (Diaclon?) to show off. At the time it was the most amazing thing I had ever seen and couldn't wait to get my own! :) 

    Unfortunately when you're 11 your allowance doesn't go very far, so I only managed to buy a small number.

    I just finished photographing them all with the intent of selling them on eBay (NYC apartment + 2 kids = sell stuff to make space) when I stumbled across this site and was thrilled to find this message board! It's quite a community here and I've learned a lot about my own collection.

    So without further ado, here's a link to my (small) boxed collection:
    http://www.digitalchild.com/transformers/

    When I put them on eBay next week I'll provide auction links in the eBay forum here.

    I'd love to hear your comments. Also, let me know if there are other angles, shots, or details you'd like to see (these galleries are easy enough to produce).

    Thanks for reading.

    persistence...

    Determination and patience go a long way. :) 

    I'd save and save and then buy one. It's been more than 20 years now, but if I had to guess I'd say it took me somewhere upwards of 2 years to buy all these.

    Also, I received some of these (like Jetfire) for holidays and birthdays.

    Hi there. Yes, I did by that Bumblebee sealed. Unfortunately this Bumblebee's right shoulder is loose, which is why it's straight down in all the photos. If I remember correctly I was disappointed with this purchase because it came out of the package loose.
