    I thought I would share with you one of my most prized possessions, an unused in box Transformers Battlin' Robots set from 1985! I have only seen one on ebay in recent years, and it was trashed to bits. To my knowledge, this is the only unused one anywhere, as I have never come across another (if you have one, post a pic in the thread). It is one of the coolest officially licensed items from G1 without a doubt. Here are pics for your enjoyment! BTW, the sticker sheets are bagged and boarded for protection, they did not come that way.

    Extremely cool.
    I still have this from when I was a kid. We used to play it constantly.

    I'll trade you a standard off the shelf one for that one. I'll even throw in free shipping and insurance. :D 

    Really nice.

    I used to have one that was put together, but it got trashed when my dad moved out of his old house. Oh well, I can settle for an unused one :)

    This isn't my cup of tea, but novelties like this are cool to hear about.
