Topic of the Week: Advice for Restoring Old Transformers G1 Figures?

I was at a collectible show this weekend, and found someone selling core technobots for real cheap. I got Scattershot, Nosecone, Lightspeed, and a poor condition m Strafe (all w/o accessories) for under $30. Anyways, I would like to ask for some advice on how to restore them. 1st, I have seen pictures of them, where the lighter parts are super white. Mine have minor yellowing.

looking on other message boards is a good idea too for those loose pieces. As far as restoring them, there's not much you can do for discoloration. there is a process of putting Oxy Clean into Hrydogen Peroxide in a glass dish, and leaving the figure in the the dish in the sun for a while to bri... read more

I usually go to collectible conventions, they do not have to be Transformer specific, and better if they are not, since most of the time they are cheaper. I would actually print out a picture of the accessories I will be looking for. Transformer is good for those. As for cleaning up the bo... read more

Imaginarium Art posted a new teaser to Facebook for a future statue project, keeping up a constant pace of releases under development. The newest subject of their attention? Why, none other than Galvatron! The silhouette is unmistakable, and it may imply an interesting display base. Galvatron's shadow is planted atop the shape of Cybertron, so the resulting display piece may itself be Galvatron standing atop the planet. Unknown right now when we'll see more out of this development, but the prototype stage ought to be interesting when they're ready to share it!

Tonight they've continued downward, revealing the lower half of the body with a look at the legs and a considerable chunk of the base environment the statue stands on.
