    Does anyone have any pre-Transformer pieces in their collection? If so, I wanna see!


    I've always been a fan, but my meager budget won't allow me to even consider these.

    I have a what I hope is a pre TF Cassette-Man with Ravage. Its either a Pre-TF toy or a very early Knock-off.

    I'll see if I have any pictures of it.

    When I was little I had a lot of them. My Dad brought back a Pre-TF Cassette Man from a business trip to Japan and I was hooked. I then went to the Swap Meets and Flea Markets every chance I got to get more.

    Alas as I was little they were thrashed quickly. I was then thrilled when the TF line started and I could get new versions of the toys that broke.

    Diaclone with the little choke hazard drivers ROCKED!

    I miss those and all TFs should have pilot seats.

    Repost from the Botcon haul thread, but since it's the most expensive TF I own I'm trying to get some mileage out of it :)

    I've got a decent Blue Bluestreak.

    Also had a MISB Mirage, but it wasn't a Takara Pre-TF, it was a GIG version. So I opened it and use it for a loose figure. See if you can spot him. :D

    oh man, just the thread for me to drool in right now, pre-TF has become my newest interest (other than G1, the usual) just lately, but it is not easy stuff to come by.

    Fairly recently I got my only pre-TF item, if you can call it that as it's the vintage Shantai Taiwan KO version, Cassette Man, 100% complete with 3 (all original ko cassette man) missiles, matching lazerbeak and his missiles. He's in as good condition as my brand new hasbro reissue!!! :

    According to the box its Fortress Robot X. Cant read the kanji/Chinese but I assume its means the same. Normally fakes dont have any company logos on it. If you look carefully at the bottom right corner of the Fortress box you'll see Takara's 1970s (?) mascot. And it also has Takara in small print.
