G2 Stunticons and other rarities on eBay

Feel free to discuss anything about any of the thousands of Transformer toys here. Anything from Generation 1 all the way to the soon to be released, the never to be released or the hope to be released is fair game! Want to show off your stuff? Please post your's and see others in the Transformers Collections Forum.

ScottyP ... we've got to talk about this stuff on the podcast. All of this is truly a piece of history that we just don't see that often with this hobby.


Most of these were only seen in the past few months for the first time as actual painted samples, and now here they are already on ebay. Unpainted ones have been known of for awhile on only some of them. I don't think anyone previously thought the "Hound" go-bot ever made it beyond test-shot stage. And yes, we'll absolutely be talking about this stuff!

No shitty piece of Chinese plastic is worth the insane prices people pay for this stuff.

Furthermore, how do you know these are not fakes, especially with genuine ones being so rare?

It's been confirmed that he's auctioning pieces off that belonged to a former Kenner employee. Highprime may have further more specific info to confirm the legitimacy.

What bothers me is that regular people were able to get a hold of these rare, unreleased Transformers and Gobots from toy company employees. Don't ask me how, it, for some reason bothers me. This set should obviously be in some kind of Transformers or toy museum.

Actually there was an episode of Toy Hunter where a comic book shop near an old Kenner toy factory had one of the extremely rare star wars missile firing boba fett figures that, had been traded in for comics by a kenner employee in 1980ish. A similar thing could of happened here with these prototypes.

Why shouldn't "regular people" who clearly have lots of money not be able to acquire such rare items?

Only four of the six formerly lost molds were released. The purple car and the jeep were not used, probably due to either the molds still being lost or considered unusable. The rest were first released in RiD as Prowl 2, Spychanger Sideburn, Side Swipe and Daytonus.

While we don't know who they were supposed to be, that red and white car would have most likely ended up as Rumble. And judging from the name on the side, the Jeep would probably have been Hound.

And would have been the only properly named GoBots of all of them (though you could argue about Bumblebee, Optimus Prime and "Megatron").

Anyone know how I can get my hands on the Japanese versions of Optimus, Megatron and Soundwave?

The Gobots? Are they different? I got the Japanese G2 Gobot of Megatron at Botcon one year, but that's because I thought it was completely identical to the US release. As in, only a sticker on the front of the card was different.

They have a large T on the hood of their vehicle mode, I think it says "Transformers" on their windshields, and Soundwave's robot mode uses some different colors.

As a matter of fact they are! The Japanese versions all have Soundwave's Tampograph on their hoods plus Soundwave is basically Gearhead with a bright yellow car shell: in other words, significantly different. Another nice thing to know is that they kept their US names. That's right: the first official use of "Optimus Prime" in Japan was in 1995, not 2007 ;)
