In a prior list, I tooted my own horn as having once owned the largest collection of Transformers in Mequon, WI. Thankfully, I had the foresight not to give them away to some little neighborhood kid to shove up his nose, and so I still have most of them in their pristine state. Below, a "cherry-pick" of my most treasured Transformers.
  1. Optimus Prime
    20898b5a 1c56 4bad a558 5ec127dc5f09
    Leader of the Autobots. Turns from a truck into a truck with legs and a head.
  2. Teenagicor
    Aad137d0 978e 48b1 9d5c 2899d9d16d63
    Perpetually transforms from infantile adult mode to brilliant baby mode. Armament includes: eye-lazers and eye-rolling.
  3. Tea-Cattel
    D04b86b0 fe7c 4767 91b0 4ef7a6e30816
    Transforms from soft and snuggly kitty into powerful tea-kettle. Strength: 8 Intelligence: 7 Brewing time: 3 minutes.
  4. Starscream
    48b5e3bb 2dbe 4e53 a759 8368b7b7e1a8
    Megatron's #2 and sometimes-nemesis, Starscream can travel MACH-3, carries powerful arm-mounted ion cannons, and transforms from jet to ice-cream cone. In ice-cream mode, must be evenly licked on all sides or he falls on the sidewalk and you cry until the guy behind the counter feels bad and gives you one for free. Ok, Timmy, will you be more careful, now?
  5. Hip-zor
    58b4a5dc 0c65 4176 8698 7f49c80e820f
    Transforms neighborhood cafe into place no one wants to be.
  6. Soundwave
    3b351a1e 2fd3 4d28 bf19 bd7652fd5e60
    Transforms from robot into a boombox. And had little robots that transformed into tapes that went inside it, and...what? You don't know what a boombox is? Go back to your snap-chatting, you millenial!!!!
  7. Ironhide
    6a7b7fec 13dd 4d99 b992 e91d729e0284
    Transforms from hippie van into, like, whatever that is.
