    Lately I've been trying to gather a personal collection of Transformers catalogue scans which covers the US, Japan, and UK. Now the US and Japan are easy, there's already some good easily findable scans for both, the UK however is causing me more trouble for the later years of G1. Does anyone know where I can find scans which cover 1990 onwards?

    I know they must exist as I have memories of fantasizing over Pyro, Clench, Thunderclash and Skyquake...

    Man, I'm missing about half of those. Only have Ironfist between the Trakkons and Lightformers. Also wouldn't mind owning the Rescue Force...

    Man I loved the little leaflets that came with the boxed Transformers same with GI Joe. Those were the times. I have an original toy Fair Hasbro catalog from 1985.

    What's weird is that those early 1990s European releases got different English-language names for different European markets.

    For example, "Deftwing" was his name in the UK and Spain, while in France, Belgium and the Netherlands, he was named "Blue Arrow".

    There is a guy selling a replacement rotor and missiles kit on eBay. I bought one before. Well worth it.

    I still have the 91 and 92 catalogues.
