    Please dude, in a place where the MAIN way of communication is through typed text, start using some proper punctuation and check your spelling BEFORE you post all these new threads. It's simple netiquette :) 

    Thank you.

    Good ol' times, eh folks?? When you were walking in the toy store watching transformers and seeing some tfs you thought could not be constructed at all (spanish versions that were sold in my country were lacking catalogs, so I crapped my pants as I held G1 Megatron that my parents bought me).

    Some where in the mid 1980s continued to collect through pretenders. Stopped collecting with Action Masters. Bought a few G1s around 97-99. Stopped because of college. Restarted with Classic Rodimus.

    I think, Top Spin was my first.

    1985. Had a full G1 collection when I was a kid and my parents eventually chucked them all about 15 years ago. Just started collecting them again last month.

    I dont know the exact time I started. All I know is I was 6 by the time the 80's ended, but I already had a lot of G1 toys (it's entirely possible I took them from my uncle). I fell out during BW (not because I didnt like it, but because I wasnt sure I was still interested in toys at the time) and came back during the tail end of RiD

    I had a few toys during the 80's (Topspin, Warpath, Powerglide and a lot of other Mini bots)

    When Armada came out I started Getting those toys (Prime was a Red and blue semi again). MY personal situation changed so I stopped collecting. I don't really collect anymore but I do buy the occasional toy that looks cool. The Classics opened me up to TFs again as they really do look cool. My wife got me Alt Prime for Eidh so now i'm on an alternator kick.


    My collocting is limited to certain toys I had during the 80's and cool looking tfs. I'm currently waiting on Titanium Rodimus to come out here and tit Magnus when he is released.
