    It seems like poor Landfill is stuck with a permanent view of Chromedome's robo-behind.
    But seriously, great setup!

    Haven't seen you around here for a while Robowang. I know Ramjet likes toast, but around these parts, Slugslinger likes donuts :D 

    Well, according to his profile, Landfill doesn't mind the stink...
    :D

    Just 4 of the triple changes in Euro boxes.

    Edit 26/11/2016: They are Mint in Sealed Blisters. So hard not to open them, :) .

    Awesome stuff Maz, knew you would get hooked with the masters.

    I've got ten small grail pieces coming in the next couple weeks. A few of them would technically be my ultimate Grail.

    Dealer in con form and Clouder in bot form for me :)

    Those four are a huge hole in my G1 collection. I'm way too cheap to collect G1 so I just wait for a reissue, white astrotrain reissue aside

    Why? The reissues are expensive compared to loose complete G1s anyways, and crappier plastics

    Not sure you'll count this as Generation 1, but technically it's a reissue exclusivce of the pre-Jetfire sooo.... :) 

    My #Deskbot today is the Bandai 1/55 VF-1A Super Valkyrie (Hikaru), never available originally in this configuration for the vintage Takatoku or Bandai lines.

    Ahhh... I own several Yamato and Arcadia Valks, but they are almost all in storage. To be honest, I have little to no interest in the Macross canon, so every once in a while I contemplate selling them... But then pictures like yours make me see how magnificent all the Macross toys look, even the more vintage figures, and then I know I just can't sell them...
    That's a great #deskbot you have there Maz, he'll definitely make concentrating on work a little harder to do :)

    I don't know if any of you are planning on picking up X-Transbots Eligos, but I had a chuckle at the mini-Galvtron figure that comes with him being quite a good fit for G1 Scorponok...

    True, but there are something special about toys/Transformers which are still MISB or MSOC or blister :) .

    Now comes another debate, do toys/Transformers last longer sealed in boxes, on cards, blisters and etc.?

    Cheers

    True, but it's so rare that I come across minty G1 toys. I really only bought loose G1 at botcon. I won't buy online just based off pics online anymore. So its really a supply thing, and I stick to reissues cause l like getting a "new" toy.
