    Hi folks,

    I've just recently acquired a huge cache of G1 Transformers from a friend (including a bagful of plastic laser guns and missiles), and in the process of sorting everything out, have encountered a few oddities in the spec cards.

    Anyone can shed some light into these? They were purchased in eastern Canada, sometime in 1984/1985.

    For example:
    - An oversized Optimus Prime card (it's double the size as normal)
    - Swoop's card is mislabelled as "Tracks"
    - Soundwave and Buzzsaw's cards are labelled "Autobot"

    I'm interested in any history behind these typos, and also if they are worth anything?

    P.S. First post!

    I believe the oversize Prime one is also just Canadian. There is no french on it? That is a dead giveaway.

    Lots of the Canadian stuff was messed up. Hell, we got the show acurate Slag, not the common US version. Go figure.
