    Is there a site that we can order Transformers G1 Autobots & Decepticons, i knew this guy that collects them and they are the size of a milk carton. And how about the 80's Transformers are they hard to find? Cause i remembered seeing at Walmart and Toys R Us Thundercracker and Skywarp.

    Thanks

    Your best bet is eBay, but they will not be cheap, loose or sealed. Also, most of them aren't as big as you remember.

    So...good luck, I guess.

    Since late last year, I've noticed original G1's have gone up considerably.

    Take the reg sized headmasters for instance...... It was pretty common to buy a really nice sweet condition one for around $80. complete. Now....... $100.+

    Sure you can find a deal sometimes of course, but these are the numbers I've seen, and I've been hunting for a while now. You can find them cheaper at times also, but they'll either look like crap or be incomplete. Figure in $20.+ per gun and around $40.+ for just the head if you buy incomplete.

    So, until I have $100. saved, I don't even bother looking at headmasters! Still need Brainstorm and fugly Chromedome.


    The last 2 complete Brainstorms on Ebay---
    $88.00 w/Fugly stickers
    $90.25 w/worn stickers

    Just make a deal with members on the junkion exchange. Its random. But I've had a much happier experience buying G1s from members here and the prices can be much fairer.

    Agreed! But what really makes me shake my head, is when I go looking to buy a certain G1 figure on here and then ending up buying a totally different G1 :D 

    Takes tons of FOCUS I tell ya'!! :banghead:
