Can anyone recommend some online stores or dealers to buy G1 stuff from?

Well said. This is the very best of a select few.

Which reminds me... I *really* need to get my site up this fall. Assuming I can figure out how to run a bloody database. Argh.

What I like about buying from here is that if an item is defined as an excellent or C9 item, it is. It's damn near perfect. I've bought "C9"s from other places and it wasn't close.

Each update to the list I pick up as much as I can and never have to second guess.

So the question is then, does someone that posts on this site offer free advertising to another site?

threshold, the trick is that there are a bazillion people buying stuff, but updates come fairly often. Unfortunately, vintage store stock isn't like walmart... stuff comes and goes, you have to be ready to pounce :lol:

I just talked to Trance on the phone this evening... There's another G1 update in the pipes soon. I helped him sort through a lot of it while i was down there, and there are LOTS of nice complete G1's on the way. Have you posted your want lists in the Billboard, MaxFortitude and Threshold?

I might just be daft currently, but I don't understand the question?

I think he's rhetorically questioning the morality of offering up info on a 'competitor' store.

Well, I do know we have a link exchange with www.fortmax.com. He sometimes has some later-year stuff that one does not see often, though I haven't been over there in ages!

Would it be selfish to try and have you stall him till payday? LOL

TT you hit that one right one the nose. You may not have been over there in ages but I was just there like two weeks ago. I always look here first but then go over to Fotrmax to see if he has stuff that TFL doesn't. This time he did. A head and right fist for Bruticus. Thoes two pieces now adorn my mostly finished bruticus. G2 Swindle is standing in for vortex untill he arrives in the mail anyday now.

I was more talkin by era, he had a lot of action masters stuff back in the day.
What you're talking about, though, Trance has been listing mostly completes and not much for individual accessories, since the completes are bigger tickets, and time is of the essence.
If someone can find me a good full-time job in the Gainesville, FL area, I can guarantee you all sorts of stuff would get listed on TFL :P

Look what happened when I visited for 3 days... 330 figs updated, and all his G1 completes are sorted and ready to attack in waves!

Since that is the case since TT's visit. Really, some one help the guy out and get him a job in Gainsville. How about Ocala? Lake City? Maybe Jacksonville? Then I could hang with TT when I get back to the states. For all of us help TT get a job.
