    Just curious if there is a Instructions Database for the toys or anything out there like it. There are databases like this sites resource section for the stats etc for toys but I haven't come across one for instructions. I know for myself this would be greaty helpful as a collector I buy lots of figures that are loose and don't come with instruction.

    If we could find an organized way of posting scans etc. of intruction from various lines, one at a time and sorting them I know it would benifit so many people.

    Anyway, I thought this might be a good idea, let me know what you think and if this is even possible to do in an organized manner? AND would it be helpful?
    (sorry if this is the wrong forum)

    In terms of Instructions databases, there is one for G1, which is ran by a fellow board member. Within his site, he has a link to Fort Max's site that has instructions for other lines but not all. I also go to Hasbro's Customer Service and go straight to the toy and game instructions section and type in the figure's name and get the pdf file. I am not disregarding your idea in any way but if you want to do it, it would be one huge task for anyone to take on. But I am very sure that it would be helpful to have all of the instructions in one place rather than digging everywhere online.

    The fort Max site is very good but it does not contain the most recent toylines' instructions.
