    Whoo, really happy to pick this lot up! The biggest lot I have ever bought and a great mix of G1, G2, and BW. Everything except for two broke insecticons and the Ratchet is in great shape! The G2 is all mint complete (except Inferno, missing a fist). BW only a few of the 'Activators' missing their little weapons. Everything G1/G2 has instructions and tech specs as well as a few others for figures not present (including a few more rare ones like Sky Lynx, which I had mib -minus the instructions, and Shockwave).

    It came with more accessories than I was expecting too, stuff like complete Blades and Blast-off is great! Not all the G1 is complete though (I wouldn't be sitting right now if it all was), i.e. one gun for Sixshot, no gun for Gnaw, no gun or shield for Apeface, one fist for Trailbreaker, no missile launcher for Mirage, etc.

    Cost around $300 Cdn ($250 US). That's part of why I'm hyped. I've had some decent deals on single or couple of items before but never a 'DAMN!' deal.

    And yeah, I'm well aware of ol' G2 Slingshot. I've got him mosc (as well as a broken one):

    PSP: Great price for that haul man, got yourself a deal.

    He suffers from GPS (gold plastic syndrome), the metallic gold flakes in the plastic mean that he's particulary prone to snapping, crumbling, and disintegrating if you even look at him at a bit hard! See also Black Zarak.

    the gold flecks in the plastic make the whole piece brittle. after time the plastic wears weak and snaps. it's a common problem knows as GPS or "gold plastic syndrom"
