That 1st pick!! Boom in yo face! Or do you feel lucky punk!?...well do you?
The funniest thing about this thread? I think this is the first G1 appreciation thread ever lol.
Wasn't there one a few years ago?
G1, nostalgia...used to visit department stores as a child, staring at those G1 toys, hoping my parents will be moved to buy me one
First off, Punch/Counterpunch. Still remember why I wanted him:3 toys in 1! should be good value for money. It's a pity that I left him in the sunlight, which resulted in the discoloring of some parts.
The Autobot mode..his face looks abit like Prime, loved his orange cannon. Got a bit disappointed as a child, when I found out that his legs are JOINED TOGETHER. I didn't know the real reason for it then
The Decepticon mode. Skinny arms though, but nice weapon again
Overall, I would still rather have him than the updated Sideswipe/Sunstreaker classic mold Punch/Counterpunch
Next up, the constructicons! Always wanted a combiner when I was young, but never had the chance to do so until recently. Even though Devastator is a brick, the upcoming third party kit ultimately convinced me to get him.
Nice shots everyone!
I myself have sold off a lot of my TF collection over the past 2 years, including a lot of G1 stuff. However, I have kept all my 1984 toys, because they are my most beloved. The last toys from that year I still need to acquire are Ratchet, Mirage, and Sunstreaker.
Well, Trypticon is my favorite but I LOVE THE mint boxes I got with these figures
I LOVE Trypticon. My favorite G1 figure EVER
sun damaged an all I would to have him and the clones! A quick ?????? What is the setup you have in the background? Is that from gundam?? The picks look great like that.
Damn that has got to be the whitest Jetfire I have ever seen. I am jealous.
Chain link base.
@NIMISISKRASH: Thanks man! Yep, those are Gundam Mechanical Chain Bases Easy to set up but it gets expensive once you get more and more to fit larger characters
I was gonna say the entire site is a G1 appreciation thread, but after some of the negative shit people throw around about it, that just wouldn't be true.
He is pretty white lol. As I've said before, I'm surprised how cheap MIB G1 figures are nowadays; I remember Jetfires went for 200+ easy...... Hell, I spent 130 dollars while I was in college on a G1 Jetfire without his gun and arm clips. I thought it was a good deal back in 02
Now? I snatched up my current MIB Jetfire for LESS.... 30 dollars less
Minty mint Jetfire only sells for $100 now? I really need to buy me one now. I haven;t looked for a while and thought they were still around the $200 mark.
Great thread! I love looking at other people's G1 goodness, nice pics so far.
Hope to see a ton more
I need an updated pic of Computron after I gave him a set a reprolabels.
I love bricks
Thank you for the info! also@Miscreant .
Well most know that I am almost only G1. THe only thing I own thats not g1 is the Botcon set of 2011, as amemory for my first Botcon.
Anyway, first up. I share chris lovee for Trypticon although Scorpenok is my favorit. BUt I even a s akid always loved DArkwing and Dreadwing. So this is one of my favorit shelfs.
Yes, I also love HM.
and last week I got a hold of this, might cost a bit more then he normally does but everything is perfect.
oh wow i love the mib display.
@periL75: Left side of the room. The above pictures are on the right side of the room. Yes it is a whole room with just boxed G1.
The shelfs dont look like this now as I got the monsterbots and move around a few items but that is who the left side is. NExt step is glass doors on the other 4 cabinetts on the right side and glass shelfs insteed of wood.
Some of the others I have out, others are packed up at the moment.
nice pictures everybody would encores be acceptable for this thread? even though they aren't vintage they definitely offer a chance at G1 goodness
