    Something that I just stumbled on Youtube in regards to G1 TFs (as a fair chunk of my G1 are in storage until I get a decent display shelf to show it all).

    Wotafa has recently acquired of one of his grails (I believe although its a re-issue) and has done a review on it.



    It's no wonder he still has a passion for TFs although he does collect a lot of stuff from different genres.

    I know, right?
    An amazing coincidence. When I saw them I thought about how nice it would be to reunite the robot and alt modes.

    Khaotika still has a monster mode model for Cutthroat, but I didn’t have the money for all three and the two I got took precedence since I had the robot modes. I do plan on getting that one as well when I can.

    Thanks for posting this. Can't understand a word he's saying (well... except for Goatu Bomber and Super Ginrai), but you can totally tell what a moment the whole thing is for him :)

    They haven't KO'd eHobby Ironhide, Ratchet, Inferno and Grapple.....yet.

    Most recent prior to Hound/Smokescreen/Bluestreak were Skullcruncher and Mindwipe.

    Thanks.

    That is interesting. There is not much mentioned about the toys itself apart from the rubsign. What about for those who prefers to buy loose or MIB. Will the toy looks identical if the rubsign is applied? Tricky market.

    By the way, do you know if www.hiendtfs.com is still active?

    Haha, yeah trying to explain what line you collect to someone who isn't involved is always fun. My girlfriend saw me eyeing that Megatron on eBay and found the exact one I was looking at. If it weren't for that, she wouldn't have had any idea. As for my mom, I think she vaguely remembers the packaging style from when her brother played with them as a kid. It was a lucky guess because I doubt she knows of the existence of KO's or anything like that. She could have been fooled or bought the wrong line rather easily.

    I think it is, probably not updated yet.

    Figuring out KO loose figure from an actual one is pretty tough. But, I think most sellers are good at being up front when they are selling "reissues" and most I've seen always sell them with packaging.

    Slingshot. Speaking of KOs, hopefully they don't KO the individual aerialbots, protectobots, etc packaging like they did for the constructicons. Otherwise, it would make it trickier to buy online.

    On the G1 Transformers Buying Trading Selling FB group, someone has a case find from an old toy shop in Spain of 'gold' MOSC packaged spanish Transformers - Protectobots, Combaticons, Throttlebots, Aerialbots. It's amazing there are still case finds.....like finding sunken treasure :)  .

    Something about a case find is so mysterious to me. I've read every forum I can find about them but I just can't get enough. It makes me so happy to know they're still out there. God how much I wish to push apart some boxes at an old flea market and find a box of G1's hidden away and lost to time.. I can only dream..
