    I just like to think she's a little older than the rest of the bots. Time is starting to catch up with her and things just arent in the same place anymore;)

    Lol! Tbf that's a pretty apt description :D 

    Seriously though. Aesthetically she doesn't hold a candle to the likes of this, Prime or Hound imo.

    The official release is the 26th, right? So in the US, that's technically what, tomorrow afternoon?

    edit: If Amazon sticks to the release date, there's a good chance these can ship overnight Friday into Saturday?

    I wouldn't be too hopeful about AJP shipping your order tomorrow. Based on previous MPs, most of us will get our shipping notice sometime on Saturday and then Monday.

    I got my SS from Childrens Palace @ Randal Park Mall (now a Amazon DC), SW and TT i got from Woolworths the following summer ('86) alone with Hound, & Bluestreak due to them being on clearnce @ $5 apiece! I thought I hit the lottery that day lol. I remember it being hard to decide on which 2 Autobots to grab as I only had 20 buck( thanks Mom for payin the taxes).

    Lucky you! I came for SS but I hadn't realized he was like 12 bucks or something. I had only saved 7 which I think was the price of the cars (I could be wrong on those numbers because it was a looooong time ago). Long story short, my mom "taught me a lesson" by refusing to front me the money I needed for SS. And as a kid, there was no way I was walking away from there without a transformer. So Hound became my first transformer and I've spent my adult life collecting SS and variants to make up for that initial disappointment lol

    My man. Children's Palace which was huge and why we never needed a Toys R US, Lionel Kiddie City, and Best were also good toy spots. I think inside the mall there were 2 hobby shops on the first and second floor, only ever really went to the one next to JCPEnny's.
    I think my mother got me Ratchet and Trailbreaker from Woolworth's downtown for $5.99 a piece in 84. Damn we're old enough to remember when Cleveland wasn't completely garbage.:lol

    My first autobot car was Prowl, bought at a K-Mart on Erie Boulevard Syracuse/Dewitt NY... Long gone now. It was 10 dollars for an autobot car there.. I remembered because my mother did give-in after begging and pleading. 12 sounds about right for the seekers, they were more expensive than the cars.

    It's amazing hearing all these Transformers stories after all these years. And most of us still remember the circumstances.

    I got G1 prime August of 84 from my hobby shop. Every other G1 was from Montgomery Wards or Best. Best was where i got G1 Devy gift set, Wards was where i got my first Seeker Thunder-cracker.

    My ignore button seems to have already beaten me to the punch and taken care of this one, yet it still hungers for more...

    Eagerly awaiting my 13th TT MP seeker but while we’re passing the time reminiscing, my most memorable G1 purchase was Jetfire. Back in ‘85 while opening birthday cards at my birthday party I realized I received enough birthday cash to buy Jetfire so I had my dad take me to TRU during the party to get my holy grail. Still have it, and a few others (mix of vintage, reissues, repro boxes, and ko’s).
