    There's nothing more beautiful than a wall full of G1 TFs in the 80s. :drool:

    Ah, just a passing fad, no one will care about those in '85.

    Wrong! But I bet they'll continue to make them 100% completely out of metal.

    Thanks for sharing! 00:53 in, I'm thinking about the lucky person who's going to be receiving the minty fresh G1 OP that's being wrapped and having their mind blown upon opening. Reminds me of the time when 'Santa' got me the Skyfire for X-mas, so stoked!

    Admittedly, it would have been more interesting to have the original report audio instead of whatever....music...that they overdubbed it with.

    That music was more than a little creepy...

    But yeah, I remember seeing walls of G1 toys when I was a little lad, I chose Slag and my mother paid him off each day, as long as I displayed good behaviour at school! Haha.

    Good times.

    Christ, the sound levels. Why was he using a rolled-up sandwich packet to interview Creepy Santa and the child obsessed with violence?

    "A plane becomes Dirge". Darn tootin right.

    It never fails to amuse me how in these reports there's always at least one badly mistransformed figure. However, I think it's a new low in not recognizing that Grapple isn't a fire truck and is a crane.

    That definitely brought back some great memories. The best Christmas present I ever received was my G1 Optimus Prime that my grandmother bought me. I was six at that time and I went absolutely crazy running around the house. I still have it of course and obviously I am still a fan all these years later.

    Thank you for that!

    Yep, that's what it was like.
    Loved the synth music. At first, I thought the sound was coming from my stomach :lol 
    I always loved those simple synth melodies they used for commercials and intro's in the eighties.
