    Since I'm new here i wanted to share with you all a few of my fave things from my site.

    Unicron toy history page:
    http://www.transformersontheshelf.com/UnicronPage.html

    JC Penny scans:
    http://www.transformersontheshelf.com/catalogueJCP.html

    hope you guys like it. They have been the most visited pages on my site next to the art and collection pages. As far as i know, I might be one of the only people on the net right now with pics of just about every unicron prototype! (i need to find Cybertron proto pics to add to that page. if any of you know if any have surfaced let me know, thnx)

    Dude, that stuff is awesome. There were a lot of Unicron pics there that I have never seen before. Neat stuff.

    And the catalog scans were the best. Hard to believe that an autobot car cost over $12 more than 20 years ago!! A cybertron deluxe only goes for $10 now! Weird. And the rest of the toys and items pictured brought back a lot of memories, especially all of those different watches that turned into stuff. I actually had one of those little robot watches; wish I still did. Thanks for the trip, ErikB.

    Wow that original Unicron is so bad looking :^)! If they had released that, it would have been the worst Transformer ever invented.

    Robot Defenders were cool! They were wind up toys, right?

    Yeah, I spotted the Megatron microphone thingy too; I don't recall having ever seen one of those before, ever.

    only 27.99 for Powermaster Prime... thats a catalog price. He'd probably be $25 or less if you looked around.

    Prices over the years are weird. Some deluxes like from RID and Cybertron are worlds better than most G1 toys and cost so much less...

    Wow, I see the black version from time to time but never in robot mode, very cool stuff... and am I mistaken or does he actually have a rub symbol on his chest in that version?

    glad you all like that stuff, figured you would, lol. I too have been looking for that bloody Megatron microphone thing...such an insane product! Also, that big wheel and kiddie trike would be nice to have for my odd tf items collection.

    That is some damn cool stuff man. Good find.

    I tells ya, they just don't make merchandising tie-ins like they used to. A megatron parabolic mic? Brilliant.

    I'm still thankful Neo Unicron never saw the lght of day...it's really incredibly detailed, but it would have had about as much articulation as the G1 prototype with that giant planet half hanging off its back...

    apparently that thing is rare complete these days and is worth a pretty penny according to toyfare.
