    My custom Powered Convoy from a a couple years back. Still beautiful. Next thing on my unpacking list is new shelves for my generation one toys.

    I think you are probably stuck with ebay. Transformerland.com is another good place, but they don't seem to have any right now. They have been going for about $50-60 for at least the last couple of years since I've been looking.

    Here are my Horrocons - Snapdragon,Apeface
    I just got Apeface last month online. I'm sorry they are not the best pictures. It's a kindle and doing it with camera is way too much work for 2 pictures.

    I feel your pain.
    I’ve been needing a Hound gas can for 30+ years, but I’ve never been able to pull the trigger when I have to shell out $40-50 for one. Seems outrageous for a teeny little thing like that.

    Every time I see those figures, I can't help but wonder why Hasbro hasn't given us the generations versions.

    G1 White ULTRA MAGNUS FISTS (pair) Hand cast Reproduction | eBay

    These are not vintage. They're reproductions. He's done a lot of G1 accessories and weapons.

    I restored my brother's childhood Octopunch with the crab legs and his little gun. Very good quality and a decent price.

    I'll second that, I picked up a sword for my G1 Bludgeon from him (always bugged me he didn't come with one). Could not be happier with it.

    Life hit me hard and I had to sell all of my Chug and 90% of my Masterpiece collection, but on the bright side I did finally get a G1 Gnaw.

    G1 eBay Abundance/Rarity Index
    If you scroll down far enough, you can see the full list. Methodology was explained in that post somewhere too. Remember, the Pretenders in my count required both shell halves and the robot inside, so that accounts for them being lower (I wasn't going after "complete" in my count, just "is there enough of the toy here?"). Outside them, I found Windsweeper, Hubcap (pre-bootleg release), Targetmaster Scourge, and generally the Triggerbots/cons to be the least common. Vortex was due to the design flaw that led to his head snapping off in Bruticus. Evidently, based on the gulf between Vortex & Sinnertwin, seems Vortex had a higher attrition rate.

    For the first time ever, I own a Hound! MIB, taped accessories bag and completely unused :)

    I guess luck favored me today as a case for my Optimus also came in.

    I don't know about you guys, but for me this is such a treat. In a weeks time, A MIB Wheeljack will join the shelves :)

    I'd love it if they did. I enjoyed the TR Krok we got a few years back. I'd love to see Rad, Jackpot, Mainframe, and Treadshot in fully articulated, actually transforming glory.

    I'm sorry to hear that man! Glad you've got Gnaw to cheer you up. He is a lot of fun.

    For any of you who appreciate the pre-Jetfire Macross 1/55s, this absolutely is my favourite purchase recently:

    The GBP-1S armour is something I have coveted for years :)
