Growing up in the 80s, My parents knew my love for Transformers thanks to the cartoon and bought myself and my brother several. Before sometime before the end of the 90s, I took those same G1 Transformers, placed them in a garbage bag and dumped them all. I felt that I was going to be a man and this is how you show that you're moving on: you throw away your play things.
Anyway, one thing lead to another and boom: I was into Transformers again. As I collected I fantasized about getting my old G1 toys again but in modern form. I launched the Heroes Return project and collected (from left) Jazz, Ultra Magnus, Chromedome, Fortress Maximus, Nightbeat, Grimlock and Pointblank. I had a few other Autobots but I don't plan on getting them for some time. I wanted the numbers to be perfect as my brother and I had more Autobots than Decepticons.
Anyway, I am very proud of this small collection of characters I owned, destroyed and ultimately discarded as a kid.
Here's a link to the posthumous honor I made for them. You can even see the few who are missing. urbn1nja.deviantart.com/art/Po…
