A G1 Holiday Treat!

Because I’ve been so extremely slow about posting anything of late, just working too much is to blame. I thought I would share something festive today, as a way of wishing all of you an amazing and Happy Holiday! I’ll start off with some of my favorite wishbooks photos, for those of you that grew up during the ’70s and ’80s, you’ll remember many of these photos, for my sister and I, it was a way of marking off what we wanted for Christmas. And because of the title above, I’ll focus mainly on Transformers, then I’ll share a Transformer fanfiction I recently read!

Wishbook fun from 1984…

In 1984 there was only one page of Transformer toys… In 1985 though, you found these Bots and Cons everywhere!

1986 was just toys again, as it would be the following years, although the toys continued to be personal favorites!

Story Time…

Here’s another amazing story I read recently by Jazzbot, and it’s got lots of holiday feel! The story takes place after the return of Optimus Prime in the third season. Jazz, Sunstreaker, Sideswipe, Mirage, Bluestreak, Trailbreaker, Hound and many of the original Ark Bots now dealing with Prime’s return, this continued loss of dear friends, along with the upcoming holiday.

Read this amazing story at Christmas Spirits!

Jazzbot’s an amazing writer, to whom I would love to contact. If you know of the writer, please let her know how much I adore these stories! Happy Holidays to all of you! – Aside from the fun Transformer fun… I wanted to share a Truly Outrageous photo of my Jem Dolls, their now lined up in a way I’ve wanted them for quite some time, I just waited until I had a boxed Roadster to do it. The boxed Glitter & Gold Roadster was an early Christmas, something Tony and I found at an antique marketplace this weekend!
