Tilallareone Collection Pics - Season 1 G1

Postby tilallareone » Tue Jan 13, 2009 4:23 am

TILALLAREONE – G1 COLLECTION PICS
SEASON 1 G1 :


Here is a selection of my G1 toy collection. Finally was able to get it out of storage and photograph it. Its definitely grown over the past few years since my last collection post! I’ll be splitting this into separate threads going by Season 1, Season 2, Season 3 and Group shots (comprising all seasons).

As you can see there are quite a few pics…so hope you are all on broadband. I’ve used photobucket and just posted the image links here. These are all legit original G1s – except for maybe one or two of the duplicates - which are reissues. Oh, and of course many of the bubbles are reproductions (my repro bubble/insert seller finally came through!!!). But as for the boxes, the figures and the accessories – they’re all the real deal. 1984/85 goodness.

I've managed to complete the duplicates of just about everything as well.

These have all been packed up and put in a storage facility now – and I don’t think I’ll be getting them out for a while.

So many years of collecting and I finally feel like I've got everything I've wanted to get.

Enjoy!

Cheers guys. I feel like a major show off here (dunno how you can post collection pics without appearing like a bit of a show off I guess). Its been many years of collecting to get to this point.

What I like about mine is that its "concentrated collecting". I've focussed only on G1 1984-86. The 84 line is my favourite though. All of those characters are so iconic.

I wanna buy so many more Insecticons. You can never have enough Insecticons! :)

WOWZERS!
Would love to have both loose/complete and MIB/complete. However I have found that I am too anal about box condition to have MIB so while I love looking at boxed collections its something that I can only dream about, until I win lotto and can afford a G1 MISB/AFA collection.

Cheers Zip and others.

The way I went about collecting them all was kinda backward. You would think by looking at them that I just went and brought them all MIB/MOC right? But I didn't.

I kind've collected 'backwards'. If that makes any sense.

First I collected G1 84-86 - just the toys....just one full set - didn't really matter....any condition.... I didn't even worry about accessories.

Then I tried to upgrade as I went along slowly getting more mintier versions - often saving the earlier (beaten up/played with) versions to be used as 'duplicates'.

After a while I decided that I wanted to go Mint in Box....but didn't have the money to buy them all in one (Box, bubble, Toy and accessories in one hit) - so I just trawled ebay for second hand 'G1 box only' auctions - and spent the past few years buying them up for varying prices (got some really good deals and paid more than I should have for some too).

The final part was finding someone who did good quality fake bubbles/inserts. I've been bleating on about wanting them for about 3 or 4 years now...and I FINALLY found someone who did it. And better still he did most of the 84-86 line (creating a nice replica Bubble, and also providing the makeshift cardboard inserts and backing). Unfortunately he took about 8 months to send me what I ordered....and long after I had given up on ever receiving them - they finally came in my mailbox.

So that brings me to now.

I've used 'remake' bubbles to enhance my collection and really take it over the edge. I think it photographs 10 times better when you actually have the bubble insert to keep the toy in place.

So yeah...thats my story. I'm really not a rich guy. But I'll admit that most of my disposable income has gone on Transformers for about 6 years now. You can get bargains on ebay/trademe if you know where to look. Although prices for original G1 have certainly skyrocketed over the years....

Thats my story anyways.

I wonder - if I ever did sell this collection - would it devalue it heaps that I don't have the original bubbles/inserts? I wonder if there are many others out there like me who don't actually care about that aspect. Just as long as the toy, accessories and box are legit.

Bah...I'm babbling. Its been good fun though. Transformers are awesome :) Heh.

I've actually very seriously considered doing this myself, more so just to protect the toys than anything. If you don't mind me asking, how much did it cost for the inserts and stuff to be made? I don't know if I'd go as far as buying the boxes on ebay (though I have considered it), rather just seeing if I can find scans (of at least the front of the box) and making some up. Awesome collection regardless.

1 (possible) nitpick, I'm pretty sure what you're calling Bumblejumper is more commonly known as Bumper, from my understanding Bumblejumper is generally considered red Bumblebee, Cliffbee is Yellow Cliffjumper, and Bumper is the other mold. Very cool that you have him anyway, For some reason he's one of the favourites in my collection.
