I started collecting trasnformers again during the g2 and beast war era. I remember when people would pay lots of money for essentially loose junked g1 transformers. I remember when toys like predaking and God Ginrai would command hundres of dollars for a loose junk version. During that time, the "fans" said that we would never see live action transformer movies. They said that we would never get g1 reissues. When we started to get g1 reissues, they said we would never get stepper, predaking, or God Ginrai. Overtime, all of the naysayers were proven wrong. I remember when TRansking had a for sale website and sold his mint in sealed box c-9 g1 transfomers for $300 to $400 a piece and people screamed that the prices were to high lol. They would go much much higher in the years to come. As transformer fans, we have pretty much gotten all our collective wet dreams catered to. This post is about nostalgia. I remember with joy when the predaking and God Ginrai and other reissues came out and the market dropped overnight for many transformers and caused much collector nerd rage. Please share all of your pre-reissue nostalgia.
