This is probably my favourite purchase so far in my career. Complete with tech spec bar one missile I am a happy man.

Stickers in good nick considering the age. Poor camera but this baby has no yellowing & only a couple of minor paint chips at the front . Tyres are perfect to boot.

Oh wow Prowl! - That's stunning mate, congratulations!
It's amazing to think that there are still some loose yet mint '84-'85 diecast cars to be found!

Very nice, always had a soft spot for Gnaw. Hopefully Takara still has his mold and we'll see a reissue.

@Prowl: that wheeljack is amazing. He was my first transformer and such a classic.

@Gamblor916: look at the chrome on that beast!! Prowl's right - need sunnies!

Fantastic acquisitions! Go G1!!

The KO of Gnaw is one of the worst ones that has been produced, even in poor photos the leg differences can be seen... I think in over 2 years of collecting I have collected 4 gnaws, not all complete but looking at my spreadsheet worked out to be just over $100 totaled. I work hard to save money for transformers(my transformer spending budget is less than half of what I spend on food each week and I dont each much!) and I just get really annoyed when people think is its hasbros or takaras job to make reissues of 20+ year old toys when hasbro and takara should be focusing on moving the toys and brand forward.

Rant over - More G1 photos people!

oh very nice!

I got the Megatron t-shirt too, but didn't manage to find the prime one. The most awesome thing is the box eh?

See you got some LDs too. The cover with the 2 Megatrons was something I passed on when I was at Hero Gangu (undoubtedly the place you got them?)

Great piece Prowl. Wheeljack is one of the nicest G1 molds but 2 great issues always plagued the piece, yellowing and curling stickers. It seems your is good and okay on both counts!
