Hi all - new member here.

My parents decided to bring up a few boxes of my old toys when they came to visit this Xmas. Included was a good bit of my G1 Transformers.

I'm excited to see some of them again (as I am 34 now, its been ~ 22 or so years since I played with them). For the most part, they are in OK shape. A few are worse for the wear but most are in good shape.

I am very excited to see the possible value some of them may have. In particular my Fortress Maximus which is still at my parents' house. Last time I looked at him (about 2-3 years ago) he was in very good shape.

Not sure yet if I am selling or holding on to them. I need to see if I can round up the rest of them along with the various guns and pieces (which I should still have).

Anyhow, great website here! Thanks for having me!

Craig

Welcome to the site. Pretty cool to get them back. I wish I boxed mine up instead of dumping them all (and/or destroying them).

Oh, and on a dead serious note fort max is worth $20, but since you're new here I will give ya $30. :P Ok, just kidding. That is a real gem. If I were you I would hold onto that. If it's complete and in good shape it could be worth a boatload. If it's not complete and not good shape, you can still get hundreds of dollars for it. I would keep it myself. - think's to myself... my precious -

WOW! $50!!!! Oh my gosh! SOLD!!!! :lol:

Thanks for the welcomes.

Countdown, I will be at my parents' house this weekend and I'm gonna try to get FM and some other stuff if possible. FM should be in great shape (fingers crossed). I've known from poking around over the years that he was worth some money, but holy smokes...had no idea he was fetching as much as I've seen recently.

I think I am going to figure out what all I have, do a thorough inventory, grade everything (as best I can) and figure out the total value. From there I'll decide whether to sell 'em or keep 'em. Part of me knows it would be cool to give them to my kids someday, but I wouldn't want them to have as toys to play with, ya know. I dunno...brain is hurting! :)

It does! In fact...maybe too good. I actually caught myself making the sound effects I used to make when transforming them yesterday while I was playing with Swoop. :oops: Fortunately, my wife wasn't in the room. :)

One of the coolest features I found on some of the new transformers is that a few of them make that sound effect while being transformed. Universe 2.0 Silverbolt is one of them. Honestly given how they add sound to so many of them lately I don't know why the transformation sound isn't in more of them. Its way better than a horn or gun sound.

I'm up in Jacksonville.

Just returned home from a weekend trip down South and scored not only Fort Max (who's in fabulous shape) but also both of my vinyl Transformers carrying cases that are full of all my weapons and various accessories along with some instruction sheets and other goodies. My parents also gave me a huge bag full of old Transformers school folders! I think they've saved everything of mine (yes - I'm an only child). :lol:

Pictures to come asap I promise. In the meantime I need to start going thru the accessories using the database here and figure out which figures are still boxed up somewhere.

Man lucky you. My mom through all my Transformers away one day when I was in school in 7th grade.:evil: That was in 1989-1990. I had roughly 100. Needless to say that was the worst day of my life. :cry:
