TRANSFORMERS TOYS discussion thread

Could have over looked, but did'nt see this mentioned yet.

Surley if you guys have seen the movie, chances are you watch the show as a kid, and most likely and some molded plastic of your very own.

Discuss. What you had, what you wanted but never got, and what you wish what could have been.



I had the big man himself, the og gangster Optimus Prime amongst many others like Ultra Magnus, Galvatron, Cylonus.........most of what I got was like the 86-87 era

Never had Megatron.....eventually got Starstream, thundercracker, and skywarp as re-iisues. (I had to to it, childhood void)


I always wondered why they did'nt make Metro Plex into a giant playset instead of toy that was no bigger than devastator.

Would have have cool........sell it in 5 parts. This is his upper torso, this is his arm, and the other arm, and both legs.

3-4 feet tall........I don't see why not. The G.I Aircraft carrier was like 6 feet long

I lost all of my G1 TF's, most of what I have now is new stuff. I have:

From the film:

Optimus and Starscream

From Hasbro's newly re-issued line:

Optimus Prime

and I have that massive 20th anniversary Optimus Prime with voice clips from the cartoon film.

BTW, he comes packaged with his blaster cannon, his energon axe and to my surprise, Megatron in gun form for him to wield.

My most treasured transformer toy (i only had 2 stick out tongue) was a repainted Scorponok. It was given to me by a godfather who was stationed in Japan. It was called Black Zarak in Japan and was a black/red/gold version of Scorponok that came with a trident and 3 minibots in city mode...

When I was a kid I had Devastator, Hot Rod, Rodimus Prime, Battletrap and Windcharger...Of these only Rodimus, Battletrap and Windcharger survived...

Not many I know, but since then my collection has expanded to include the following:

Jazz, Smokescreen, Hound, Grapple, Tracks, Mirage, Hoist, Bluestreak, Wheeljack, Sideswipe and Inferno

I bought Devastator again, I just had to have the big guy in my collection. Also own Metroplex and Ultra Magnus as far as owning "big" TFs goes...

Pride of my collection is a 100% complete Soundwave with Buzzsaw. I also have a box for SW. Got the Autobot equivalent (Blaster) too. Oh and I'm pleased to say I own the Decepticon Clones Wingspan and Pounce, as they're quite hard to come by in the UK.

There's others I've bought, including the following re-issues:

big bad Prime
Galvatron (I also own an original G1 version)
Starscream
Thundercracker
Skywarp
Black Hot Rod
Clear Hot Rod

The cool thing about TFs are they're still available and now I'm finding I'm able to buy all the ones I wanted as a kid!

I had the big guy with the trailor. I also had Hotrod, Starscream and Megatron. But the bulk of my collection was actually Beast Wars toys.

Yeah, I have one too, the small info screens on his arms with Grimlock and Megatron were an awesome touch of detail.

The TF Generations line had a few re-done oldies. It had Rodimus, Bumblebee, Starscream, Grimlock, Mirage, Optimus, Megatron and a few others. Although for some odd reason, I guess since the film was a huge success, figures are extremely hard to find now! Online I've seen prices in the 30-40 range for a toy that normally costs nine bucks, I don't know if it's the lack of production on Hasbro's part, or just California being on a spending frenzy. I haven't been able to find a single good character besides lame-ass Rachet from the film.

There are new classics coming out, Rufus, but I don't know which yet. I know they did a classics Dirge, Thundercracker and Thrust as BotCon 07 exclusives, but whether or not we'll see them on the shelves I don't know.

I think movie Ratchet is awesome, a nice solid piece. There's a repaint of him coming out as an actual red and white traditional ambulance, as opposed to a lime green fire dept search and rescue ambulance.

The only movie figures I do like, though, are Barricade, Ratchet, Brawl and the second Bumblebee. Blackout is awesome but the bulky backpiece is a hinderance.

I'm wondering if/when they'll do more G1 reissues.
