Mail-away G1 Transformers - TFsource Article

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.

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.
