    After reading topics,posts ect... it seems people have there own idea of what they think is rare. So I figured we start a thread and us "hardcore jumpstarter" collectors decide from 1 to 5 were it stands on the list

    here is the rating system
    1)Super Rare (only a few have been seen)
    2)Rare (only a few pop up a year)
    3)Semi rare (hard to find or expensive)
    4)common (every collector and there mother owns one)
    5)total slag (if its free I will take it but wont pay for shipping)

    Please only post "G1 or G2 TF" related items from anywere in the world, I dont want to see your 19th cousins Brave's or Taiwan Popy KO's lol...

    I think Whirl from G1 with the net inside the cockpit window is a little on the rare side. Been collecting since 1992 and have never seen one. Ive even seen 8 of the Mcdonalds Transformers from St.Louis so I believe Ive seen rare.

    I would rare this

    3)Semi rare (hard to find or expensive)

    I have seen many but complete and mint I would say is not common.


    do you have pics of the Whirl? Also the Mcdonalds Transformers from St.Louis are rare for sure as you do not see them often!

    Thanks for the website links. It nice to finally be some what educated about them. Though I will never get into variations cause that would just drive me crazy. According to the website, your tailgate is "rare". :lol  I'll go with that.

    Here's some stuff here. Would like to point out Kirk.
