    This is how it begins....., not out of it but in their respective boxes. This is a thread for the appreciation of Boxed Transformers, with all the box art, if possible.

    EDIT 11/05/17 Minimal requirement: Front and Back View

    Here's a repost of a pic I posted last year in the G1 appreciation thread. Sadly, I no longer own Lightfoot.

    I really love those late G1 Japanese boxes. That creme color is just delicious in every possible way. Much better than the tacky pixelated sunburn America got.

    Takara does lose points for the racist logo, though.

    I imagine those MB dinobots aren't the easiest things to come by

    I've been getting ready to sell of a lot of sealed stuff I have (just want to trim down on collection space), so was going to do a big batch of RID(& CR) stuff, so getting it all out, thought I'd take a picture of a wall of sealed RID. Searched for a RID/CR appreciation thread but didn't see one, but saw this thread and thought it'd fit.
