Condition at last sighting: ...
Other comments: ...


Transformer: Beast Wars Magnaboss (Ironhide, Prowl, Silverbolt)
When acquired: 1997
How acquired: Grandpa
Still have, or last sighting: Packed away, just don't have that much of a BW collection for me to have them out.
Condition at last sighting: Ironhide is in good condition. Prowl and Silverbolt are a tad unplayble; the Magnaboss head is broken on Prowl and Silverbolt has something wrong with his torso.
Other comments: I was super fascinated with Elephants when I was a kid, so Ironhide was probably the best toy ever. I've digressed from that thinking, but if I ever go back and recollect BW I'll try my hardest to get a mint Magnaboss so I can relive the memories.

I would have been 8 years old and it was 28 years ago, so I don't remember.

Weapon: Twin Sonic Cannons
Transformer: G2 Motormouth.
When acquired: 1993 (I think)
How acquired: Christmas gift
Still have, or last sighting: Don't have it, gave it away with all my other childhood toys when I turned 18 to a Salvation Army store
Condition at last sighting: No gun, but it had help up very well over the years
Other comments: I had lost the gun the first day and never found it again. Still he was a fun little guy to play with. Ended up getting all the figs from that line before losing interest and giving them all away at the time.

Weapon: Blunt Force Battle Clubs
Fun exercise :) Mine-

Transformer: G1 Thundercracker

When acquired: 1984

How acquired: B-day or X-mas. Been a looooong time, can't remember 100%

Still have, or last sighting: Long gone, probably eaten by my parents old houses attic.

Condition at last sighting: Main body and wings- nothing else. Landing gear and fists were the first to get lost- I kept it mostly in alt form flying it around.

Other comments: First TF I ever got. Loved that thing to pieces. Still have vivid memories of tagging along with mom on errands flying him around attacking the store displays and shelves. One of the first toys I got when I started collecting again? MP-11 Thundercracker!

Motto: "The only good is knowledge, and the only evil is ignorance."
Weapon: Dual Bladed Sword
Transformer: Micromaster Off Road Patrol: Powertrain, Mudslinger, Highjump, Tote
When acquired: 1989, at the age of 5
How acquired: Gift from my parents, don't remember the exact circumstances
Still have, or last sighting: Still have'em, right now they're on the back of a display table pending their move.
Condition at last sighting: Aside from a bit dusty, Powertrain had his smokestack snapped off long ago, and Mudslinger lost his lights around the same time. Other than that, still tight joints for the most part, which is more than I can say for the rest of my little dears...
Other comments: It's probably because of them I have an affinity for small Transformers and their play sets. That includes today's Mini-Cons, so... :x
"I have Autism and I'm proud of it!" - Myself

Top 5 Priorities:

1) BW Neo X-7 Elphaorpha
2) RiD 2001 Dreadwind & Smokejumper
3) RiD 2001 Destructicons Bludgeon & Scourge
4) Universe 2003 Night Slash Cheetor
5) BW Convobat (red) & Megalligator (purple)

If anyone has spare RiD Mini-Con armor pieces for Glacius and Beastbox, hit me up!

The resident Rewind... well, half of one :lol:

Transformer: Powermaster Optimus Prime
When acquired: 1993
How acquired: bought from a friend
Still have, or last sighting: June 1996, left at grandparents' house in Europe. I came to the United States under the pretense of vacation, and never went back. So I never saw that Prime again. Since I had bought replacements, but recently I sold it in anticipation of Xovergen Trailerforce.
Condition at last sighting: It was missing everything except 1 of the dual-barreled cannons. No Hi-Q, no big head, nothing.

Transformer: G1 Hubcap and G2 Hook

When acquired: er... somewhere between 1997 and 1999

How acquired: A Boy Scout penny social thingy... basically the Boy Scouts gather as many donated items as possible and sell them to raise money for their troop, in a yard sale type fashion.

Still have, or last sighting: They're sitting on the shelf above my window ;)

Condition at last sighting: same state as I got them. Hubcap is missing his allegiance sticker but is otherwise in good shape. Hook is in good shape as well, but is missing all his accessories

Other comments: I remember they came together in a zip-lock bag and cost me less than $1 :lol:

Other comments: When I went back to Transformers in 2010, I bought the latest reissue plus a separate smokestack kit. OP was a bitch to mod, but it was and still is well worth it.

Transformer: G2 Dinobots
When acquired: Presumably, 1993 (when I was 5)
How acquired: Christmas present. Or maybe Birthday?
Still have, or last sighting: Long lost, probably within just a couple years of acquiring.
Condition at last sighting: Not good. Grim's dino head always popped off during transformation, lord knows what else was broken...
Other comments: I got the Dinobots since I was obsessed with dinosaurs as a kid, though I can't say I really liked them for what they were. Transforming them was fun and all, but I don't think I ever kept them in robot mode for more than a second ("why would I want people robots when I can have DINOSAURS").

Motto: "Faith will crumble before the rage of philosophy."
Weapon: Ionic Displacer Rifle
Transformer: G1 Brawn/Sunstreaker, simultaneously.

When acquired: 1984, right after the line launched.

How acquired: Bought myself, using money earned from yard chores for neighbors. I recall Minibots being $2.99, Cars being $8.99, at the local drug store, within a block of my home. After that, I was hooked.

Still have, or last sighting: Sunstreaker still MIB, 100% complete, excellent condition, in storage. Brawn, can't remember, was eventually replaced.

Condition at last sighting: Vide supra. Susnstreaker covered, Brawn was broken and replaced(along w/several other Minibots), still in possession, excellent condition, also in storage.

Other comments: None.
I told the fire to go **** itself, and it did.

When acquired: ... In a time before time!

How acquired: ... Folks bought it.

Still have, or last sighting: ... He's standing on a shelf right now!

Condition at last sighting: ... Wrecked! He's faded to a nice green and has shattered feet. He's jumped his last jump. :sad:

Other comments: ... Who knew I'd get hooked on TF when my first exposure was this crappy toy? It's even the wrong Mexican version with the red face so it couldn't even get that right.
