    I wouldn't say a kid, this is some TF's I bought with my allowance when I was in Junior High. Last week my mom said there were some TF's in storage and she said she would mail them to me. Got them in today and I had a feeling it would be the Pretenders because thats what I played with last. The mincons, target masters, and head/power masters was a bonus. I just wished my my mom found my G1 Mirage, Wheeljack, or any of my gestalts.

    I was so happy to get these again, the only thing i'm missing is the Pretender shells. The only thing that caught me off guard was the yellowing that has developed on the back of each pretender figure (peep the Bomb Burst pic). Guess i'll have to do some handy work on those, but the stickers will be a bitch to find. Just thought I would share these with you all.

    Besides the yellowing, they all seem to remain in great shape. Good luck getting that off.

    Cool mom btw!

    Wow I had all those minicons as a kid. I miss all the Transformers I had as a kid... even with my current collection... it's still not the same. Sigh...

    Sweet, you've got Gort and Hi-Q! It will be easy and pretty cheap to find a Highbrow body to go with that head. A Powermaster Prime will probably be easy to get on eBay as well.

    I'm just stoked that they were still hiding in my parents house somewhere.

    I already have a PM Prime so I may just end up selling or trading Hi-Q. I may be on the lookout for a Highbrow body though.

    As for Fort Max storm, that was the only toy I never had. I have never seen that in any store when I was younger. Come to think of it, I don't think I have ever seen one in person yet. Isn't that crazy? and I call myself a TF Fan :lol

    Ahhhhh, how I love the Micromasters...... how I wish I hadn't gotten rid of mine..... now I'm forced to buy them back of eBay. Sigh.

    And hey, I have to say, I think the Pretenders are better off without their shells. :)
