Transformers Collection

Robot Collection - Gundam and Transformers on my TV stand

Robot Collection – Gundam and Transformers

Hopefully the pictures come out ok (might be some daytime glare/flash glare) but here’s my display of all of my Transformers.  To the left of the t.v. you’ll see the Insecticons, Ultra Magnus (White Optimus Prime), Shockwave.  To the right of the TV, you’ll see the 3 280ZX cars (Smokescreen, Prowl, Silverstreak), Hoist, Trailbreaker, Grapple, Inferno, and Blaster.  One the 2nd shelf, you’ll see my four Dinobots.  I’m still looking for the Swoop (the Petradactyl) and the rest of the G1 Autobot cars for my Transformers Collection.  The bottom shelf has my collection of the 6 Decepticon planes.  Evidently, there is one more called Sunstreaker (he’s yellow) but I’ve never seen him as a child but I have seen recent versions of him.

So my pictures were so bad, I decided to get a few more that were still pretty bad. Oh well, at least they were not as blurry!

Here’s another loose Transformer that I just purchased – this one’s “Slag” – one of the 5 Dinobots. As a kid, I had Sludge, Grimlock, and Snarl.  I now have the Dinobot Slag and I’m trying to see if I can complete the set and get Swoop, but he seems to be the hardest to get and the most expensive because you rarely find him in good condition.  I’ve noticed he usually has a broken beak or wings.  When I do find him in good condition, he’s at least $70-80 loose and 100+ in box.

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

Ultra Magnus Transformers G1

Here’s a loose Ultra Magnus that I picked up on Ebay.  I just got a more complete one with the belt, bigger head, chest piece, missile launchers and fists.  He looks much, much better complete.  He’s the same body as Optimus Prime but just in white. Ultra Magnus Transformers

Here’s one that I just got from Ebay – brand new in box for 45 dollars- Ricochet.  This is basically the same body as Jazz but he’s black. I don’t believe this character was in the cartoon and I don’t recall seeing him as a kid but I’m glad to have him.  I now have both Porsche 911  robots.

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.

Here’s a brand new in box, Toys R Us reissue Smokescreen from the early 2000’s.  I just picked him up on Ebay for a pretty good price – I think it was about 35.

I don’t recall ever having this one as a kid. I now have all the Datsun 280 ZX molds.  The other two are Silverstreak and Prowl as pictured below.

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.
