Jesus, I couldn't imagine. Almost cried looking though the pictures. It's great to know there were no KIAs, MIAs, and WIAs in the family. Best of luck to you and the rebuilding of your collection!

One of my Jetfires lived, but he was also in a separate bin then the rest of my G1 figures.

The yellowing was "normal" but worse post smoke damage such as seen below.

Grapple was mostly okay except for some melted tires and side/front chrome. He was melted to the plastic inside the package.

Inferno came out perfectly fine.

The damage to my reissue Astrotrain was quite extensive like Soundblaster. Melted front, wings, and aft. I didn't have time to try to transform him, but I think he's too damaged to do so properly.

The Punch-Counterpunch was fine, but this is what the Jetfire looked like.

I'm not 100%, but I think these are the last of the loose TF I found. I *think* a box of G2 survived, but I have yet to go through it.

Don't know if this helps, but that surviving Jetfire looks even more majestic than usual, just knowing what he was up against. And the damaged one looks pretty cool as well, just sayin'. Glad you have managed to salvage some of your collection.

The first one is fine, but the other one, no matter how cool it looked, was far too damaged and smelled. It's not just the physical damage but the smell. Hopefully more is safe somewhere in the piles of bins. If anyone remembers Dino Riders that bin was melted open and I have yet to see if I can salvage those.

Quick update: G2 survived. All of them. In that bin were also my Battle Beasts. A Toy'R'Us reissue of Perceptor was also quiet fine in his package as well as my sealed (well not anymore) reissue Soundwave (also Toys'R'Us).

So out of my G1 stuff I think I only have a Sky Lynx (smoke damaged), Jetfire (smoke damaged), Kup, and Punch-Counterpunch.
