Default WTB - G1 boxes / cardbacks / catalogues / instructions

Hey guys,

With the Parra Fair just around the corner, I was wondering if anyone would be willing to assist me in my sick fetish of collecting G1 boxes / cardbacks / catalogues / instructions. Ideally I would like to pick it up on the day however if you are not attending, I would be willing to arrange a separate meet.

I'm targeting anything from 1984 to 1986 (inclusive).

Basically name your price if you're willing to part with your cardboard / paper as long as it's C8 condition or better e.g. not ripped or torn, minimal flap crease (for boxes), nothing cut (tech specs and / or robot points) etc.

Any help would be appreciated

Got me tempted on letting go of my Sideswipe box...

Can't remember what condition it is in though.

I need money, so I can bring it, plus any other to the fair. I'll go home and find out what boxes I feel I can let go and let you know what else I got.

Hey man just noticed your sig!

Transformerland has a number of cardbacks/instructions/boxes you might be keen on

http://www.transformerland.com/store....php?Toytype=4

Many of them have been sitting in his inventory for some time, so I reckon you'll be able to negotiate a pretty good price if you buy in bulk

Good to see I'm not the only one collecting bits of cardboard on the otca forum

You have pretty strict criteria for your cardbacks though! Very very difficult to find many with minimal artwork lifted/torn off.

Thanks Whoopy I had no idea they sold cardbacks and boxes. You're right though, I am very fussy when it comes to the condition.

There's two left that I would love to own - Tracks and Soundwave. I know Goki has Soundwave but with the specs cut out I don't think he'd part with it anyway.

Speaking of cardbacks and boxes, I wonder whatever happened to my man 1AZRAEL1

I might have a couple that you could be interest in dude, but it's likely they're not in a condition you'd prefer or you've already got them.
I'll take some photos today or tomorrow and you can let me know your thoughts.

@Whoopy: I was in talks with Transformerland.com with regards to a whole tone of Beast Wars paperwork they had, both listed and unlisted, but they just stopped communication when I asked how much they were looking for the lot.
A pity, as I was willing to spend quite a bit and purchase just as much.
