    Finally had a chance to pull out my G2s and organize them together. The majority of these guys are in better shape than my G1s. Fortunately, many of them have their tech cards and instructions. I suppose I started saving them as I got older. My favorite was between the green Megatron tank and the Dinobots.

    Enjoy!

    Nice! Looks like you managed to snag almost all of them. I hope you are storing that Slingshot carefully, I know many that have long since turned to gold dust.

    I have a lot but I'm missing odd ones here or there like for Superion. What happens to Slingshot over time?

    "Slingshot is infamous for being made almost entirely of gold plastic, and he has been reported to come apart straight out of the package.[3] Worse, he's known for being another toy whose gimmick will destroy him. Slingshot's head is a post which is designed to plug into Silverbolt (or any other Scramble City leader), so that Slingshot can form an arm or a leg. Doing this will destroy your Slingshot."

    Oh...fricken...great! I also read Robobase's horror story about his Slingshots. I think y'all just gave me nightmares. Thanks!!! lol

    They did make some nice ones. I was going to sell them off, but I've decided to complete them instead. Not really many in the G2s.

    I have fond memories of those garish color schemes. Despite my collection, I was actually the re-run generation for G1. I was around ten years old when G2 was poppin up everywhere; and I was loving it. Generation 2 will always be a favorite of mine, even if I don't collect it. Beautiful stuff you got here.

    @ AutoCon2076: I think I was like... 12'ish when my parents were getting me G2s. At that age, I was more careful with my toys. I like all the wild color schemes. I'm totally there with you.

    @ G1-Junkie: Thanks for the compliment! :) 

    Sorry for the late reply to ya guys.

    That brings back so many memories! All I have left are the Prime (original with black trailer) and a Megatron in rough shape. As a kid I had the Axelerators, Jazz, Blue Grimlock, Slag, the Rotor Force Decepticon chopper, Terradive, Windrazor, and the Minibots. :D

    Thanks, y'all. :)  I'm glad I kept my G2s after I considered selling 'em. They're all too cool.
