    Nice score! BZ is always a nice addition to a collection, especially one in such condition!

    Any particular figure/boxes you are looking for? I have some pics too.

    He's my favorite Autobot design. I always wished Hound was more of an action character. I guess it's because he's a military jeep or whatever but he always seemed like he should be a soldier and a tough guy. Somehow that position got relegated to Ironhide who turns into a soccer mom van.

    I trick I've used for slightly warped flaps is to lay heavy books on just the flap with the box laying with its back down on a hard flat surface for a while. Once you remove the books, you have to put the box into the case, since like you said, it will go back to its warped shape.

    That's true. Hound was always my favorite character as a kid, so I still have a fondness for him.

    nice stuff dude. Chromedome is typically the most expensive among the 4 HM where Jap packaging is concerned. Somehow, there is a fondness for him there...

    I was around at the beginning and G1 holds a special place in my heart, but after putting the toys away as I grew older I drifted away and go into other things until in later life I stumbled across MP04 and I fell back in love with TF's.

    I really only collect the MP's, but I do have an encore Devastator and 2010 Predaking on display and boxes and boxes and boxes of my original stuff in the attic :D 

    Anyway, this leads me to the pics I'm posting as its the only G1 boxed item I have after Mother binned all my boxes shortly after they were opened :(

    My brother now lives in Taiwan, but found and bought me this TC when he lived in Japan.

    He's by no means a mint example, came with stickers applied and no instructions but the toy itself is complete and in very good condition and I love the G1 boxes.

    If I collected anything else it would be original G1 boxed Japanese releases, and I have looked into it a couple of times, but have always decided against it due to display space restrictions they'd prob end up with TC up in the box room

    Thundercracker was my first Transformer as a kid. I've said it in other threads but Masterpiece Thundercracker actually looks like I always imagined my G1 Thundercracker looked as a child.

    That's pretty much how I felt after laying eyes on MP04 for the very first time.

    It reduced me to a nostalgic wreck of a man child :D

    A well loved toy is more important than a mint toy. Great start to your G1 collection!
