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

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
