Saturday is Suggest a G1 Transformer Day

Every Saturday, I'm going to try and have a post open for YOU to give me a suggestion for which Transformer I should try to get next! Leave your suggestions in the comments section. Then on Wednesday, I will have a poll up of the four suggested figures I liked most. Maybe I'll pick the ones that got the most suggestions, or pick the coolest ones. I have no idea how this works, I'm just flying by the seat of my pants here!

Then, the poll will be up till the following Saturday. The one the wins will be the next one I track down. It may not be the next figure featured on the site, but I will have an update when said figure has been purchased.

Man, there's a lot of transformers out there.


  1. There's so many to choose from, but I'm going to suggest my favorite Decepticon (and one of my favorite G1 toys): Shockwave. Unlike a lot of G1 figures, he looks pretty much exactly like his character model in the cartoon. He's a wondrous shade of purple and is a great toy. He really stands tall, both literally and figuratively, among a G1 collection. The gun mode is a lot of fun, too. Just make sure you find one with working electronics and with a rubber hose that isn't cracked, as they tend to suffer from dryrot.

  2. Well, you'll probably be one of the only people to post one here, so Shockers will probably be in the poll.

  3. I'd like to suggest Punch/Counterpunch. His colours are brilliant, and can be either an Autobot or Decepticon! The car mode is a bit brickish, but the gimmick more than makes up for it!

  4. Oh man, I remember him, he was awesome! I forgot all about him. I wonder what he sells for...
