Perceptor – Transformers G1

Here’s another new one I just got and another one I never had as a kid – Perceptor – the Autobot scientist. I picked him up for 30 dollars and I’m quite happy with him as he’s mostly complete and he has very little wear. I would have picked him up as a kid but they just kept pumping out Transformers and I couldn’t keep up!

Whirl Transformers 1985 Generation 1

Here’s a new one that I just got from Ebay – loose – “Whirl.”  This one was never in the cartoon and he’s originally part of the “Dorvack” cartoon and was originally released by Takatoku Toys. The other robots in this series were “Mugen Calibur” (re-released as “Roadbuster” for the Transformers) and Tulcas (which was not released as a Transformer).

I’ve never had a great love for Whirl, but since I already had Mugen Calibur/Roadbuster – I thought it would be cool to have the set. Plus, he’s rare and when I saw him for 30 dollars, I thought it was a fair price.

Insecticons Transformers G1

Here’s a set of Insecticons that I just got from Ebay. I think I only paid 30 -35 for the set.  I never had these as a kid but I want to get at least, all of the original 1st season Transformers G1’s.  There is also another group of Insecticons called the “Deluxe Insecticons” but they are have a different color scheme and they were never portrayed in the cartoon.  Below are the original three Insecticons -Kickback, Bombshell, and Shrapnel. I am really glad I have all 3 of them. Insecticons Transformers Hasbro Generation 1 G1 Kickback Bombshell Shrapnel

Skids Transformers G1 Commemorative Series VIII 2004

Here’s a new one I just got from Ebay – Skids.  The original came out as part of the “Diaclone” series (pre-Transformers) back in the 80’s. I vividly remember seeing this as a kid in Japan while on vacation in 1983.  I didn’t think too much of them because I was intent on getting the big Godaikin robots.  Anyway, I took him out of the box and put on a few of his stickers so that he would look good for his picture.  I have left all the accessories in the box because I don’t want to lose them.

Thrust, Ramjet and Dirge “Coneheads” – Transformers G1

Here’s the 2nd set of planes issued for the Transformers G1 – Thrust, Ramjet, and Dirge. I didn’t realize they call these the “Coneheads” because their heads are like cones (although I’ve kept their nose cones down as I like them better that way).

Anyway, I just picked these up today.  I wasn’t originally a fan of these in the beginning as I liked the Autobot cars more but I had the original three planes from season 1 (see 3rd image – Starscream, Skywarp, Thundercracker) so I decided to get the next three (season 2) to complete the set.   These were not re-issued as part of the reissue series in the early 2000’s.

Evidently, there is another plane from season 1 called Sunstreaker that I have seen online but I don’t recall him as a kid.  I just found the sticker sheets for these planes for cheap and I’m hoping to get them soon as there are no stickers for the eyes, feet and wings so they look kind of barren at the moment.  The person I bought them from didn’t put the stickers because he said that over time, the stickers would come off anyway.

Thrust, Ramjet, and Dirge are Generation 1 Seekers(Decepticon jet fighter robots) also known as Coneheads 1985 Transformers G1 Foreign names - Dirge(ダージ Dāji), Funébro, Sparviero, Funebre, Dirgo, Funeral - Ramjet(ラムジェット Ramujetto), Statoréacto, Nibbio, Motor, Rajada - Thrust(スラスト Surasuto), Fatalo, Rapax, Mandarin- Chongfeng(冲锋, Charger), Tuijin Qi (推进器, Thruster), Impulso(Impulse), Empuxo

Blaster – Transformers Generation 1 1985

Here’s a loose Blaster that I don’t recall how I got but it’s cool because I now have the Decepticon’s Soundwave (both tape player mechas).  I understand that the complete set of this toy also has the Autobot cassettes Eject and Ramhorn.  The other two Autobot cassettes (not included) were Rewind and Steeljaw.

Shockwave 1985 – Transformers Decepticon Generation 1

This one’s another clone that I bought at a fair. Not sure if this is the Shackwave, Galactic Man or Astro Magnum.  I can’t remember though… I originally bought this before he was featured in Transformers but lucked out when they introduced him as Shockwave.  I had some extra Decepticon stickers and slapped them .  I think the original version is more purple while mine is just olive green.

Red Alert and Sideswipe – Transformers Generation 1

These are original from the 80’s.  I got Red Alert in Japan along with Inferno.  I thought they made a good set since they were both firefighters.  I also have a G2 Sideswipe and Sunstreaker.  I now have all 4 Lamborghinis.
