Trouble Identifying a Toy

Postby tmservo » Sat Jan 19, 2013 4:55 pm

I'm compiling together all of my Generation 1 transformers. I have quite a few that have just been sitting in an attic forever (along with Go-Bots) and I've been trying to figure out what some are worth and all of that.. but some I'm not even sure of the name anymore.

I have one that I THOUGHT was a Generation 1 (I don't remember buying any after I got into High School in 88) but I can't find it online

I've attached a picture. Some of these are going to be really hard to identify. I mean some are easy (I have the original Optimus Prime and Megatron of course, Percepter, Soundwave, Blaster, etc.) but sorting out some of these is a real bear. And figuring out how much some of them is work is just freakishly difficult.

But if I can't even identify them, I'm stuck.

To help this one I thought was a color change or whatever.. I think if you put heat down on it's sticker it would reveal whether it was a decepticon or an autobot.. something like that.

Two more.

Some things I'm stumbling across I almost say to myself: WOW. How did I hold onto that one (Metroplex? Go-Bots Autobot Headquarters and Thruster etc.) But some of these I have no idea what the hell they are.

Especially the really tiny ones

Thanks. I think I'm going to put these up in storage for a while longer then. Some of these maybe will end up worth something, but not now it seems ;)

If you can find Highbrow's accessories, he commands a pretty decent price.

Or, alternatively, keep him and bask in his glory.

I know I would! It's the only Headmaster I'd say I want, I'm a sucker for good Helicopter 'bots.

Bwahah.. I've got tons of helicopter transformers. I don't know, my age is showing but outside of the major ones, I can't identify damn near any of these. I mean Optimus Prime, Perceptor, Blaster, etc. those are easy.. but some of these are like what the hell.

But I'm not sure if I'm milking this forum if I just keep posting pictures and saying "WTH is this?"

Actually, the weirdest thing I've found is the stuff I totally forgot about. Like a Transformers Electric Railroad set that's silver where the train thing kind of transforms into a terrible looking plane ;)

I've tried that.. I don't know, working on it. Maybe I'll take some photos later and let you guys have at it. I'm going to hold onto most of these for a while I think
