Vintage Toy Restoration – Transformers G1 Metroplex from Takara Tomy

Editor’s Note — The Transformers Generation 1 line of toys was introduced in Japan in 1984 and was later adapted for North American consumers by Hasbro. The toys are in demand among many fans of the franchise, which has evolved to include games, comics, television shows, and multiple live-action movies. Takara Tomy G1 Transformers figures are collectible because of the company’s innovative approach to design and the fact that mint examples of the original toys can be hard to acquire.
