Hi guys. I just signed up here today when I was looking for some info on a craigslist lot that I picked up. I just completed my loose vintage Star Wars collection and decided to move to some of the early G1 transformers and scooped up a pretty sweet lot at an insane price.

I have not dealt with transformers much at all since I bought them as a kid back in the 80's, so most of these parts are unknown to me. Here are the crappy pics of the ad, and a few I snapped of some of the guys I know. I will post better tonight as I start sorting

I see an almost complete Soundwave, Skywarp, Ultra Magnus, 6 cassetes, devastator, and there is also a complete swoop in the lot, I was stoked because I have never owned him.

Lots of great stuff there. Unfortunately the first 2 pics don't enlarge for a better view. So you cannot make out a lot things. How much did you get all that for?

what I can make out:
wheeljack
sunstreaker
warpath
twin twist
blurr
bombshell
camshaft
cosmos
shrapnel

Combiner stuff:
Defensor
devastator

Accessories:
jetfire armor
megatron gun
shockwave barrel

Good Eye! :wink: I think Thrust is in there next to the Shockwave barrel. Bigger pics wouldn't hurt, though. Welcome aboard and nice haul! 8)

The lot was $30 :D

Here are a few pics, minus the hundreds of missiles, fists, chrome weapons, hoses, and god only knows what else!

Skywarp was always one of my favorites as a kid, I need to find his left rudder to complete him ASAP. I have plenty of parts that have no figure to offer in trade if anyone is interested.

Well guys, All of you have shared really amazing stuff here, its really affordable price to buy it. Now my interest is developed towards buy it by saw these.Thanks for sharing with us.


Welcome aboard Adleya! :D Those are some really nice quality pieces pictured above in Tim Vaders haul but the price he paid for it shouldn't be a reflection on market value. Check out Transformerlands store and I'm sure you'll be able to find just what you need to get going! :wink: Look forward to seeing you around.

Just noticed that I haven't welcomed you aboard!

Welcome aboard! There, that was easy! Oh, and that was one hell of a haul! How 'bout I pay you double... that's $60 for everything shipped in that haul!! That's like making 100% more than you paid, what a steal, eh? :wink: :lol: :P

No, I haven't. I wish I had a TRU within driving distance. :cry: How much do they run? And what size are they?
