Personally, joining the online collecting community was the first opportunity I ever had to see the mail-away toys from G1 having collected the promotional flyers or Robot Points as a child. I had never redeemed any of the Points I had clipped and I never knew anyone who had owned the toys offered. Seeing a G1 Reflector, a set of Omnibots or a Time Warrior watch for the first time was a momentous occasion. This 2-part series will highlight a few of the available mail-away G1 toys from the 80s in the US and Canada first of all, and then in Japan and Europe too, in no specific order.

Motto: "I’m the rising sun, I’m the new tomorrow, I’m the skull on the gun, I’m the song of sorrow; I’m the thirteenth arrow, I’m the wisest owl, I’m a soul-eating predator, I’m on the prowl"

Great article, as always.

I'm still heart-broken about my attempt to acquire Reflector as a kid. I sent in my coupons and payment, only to receive a letter informing me that the Transformers exclusive was all sold out and would I like the G.I.Joe one instead? I declined died a little inside.
