These are the earliest of the Japanese giftsets and in my opinion, the best early Transformers giftsets out there. The main reason is that they are not just giftsets of combiners, toys that should have been sold together any way, but they are giftsets of individual characters, some which could be released together, but some that are surprising when grouped together.
So here we are in year order of release:
- 1985 (mid to late) - VSX: Convoy vs Megatron giftset
- 1985 (late) - VSY: Grimlock vs Soundwave & Frenzy giftset, with audio tape and storybook
- 1986 - VSZ: Sunstreaker & Skids vs Buzzsaw giftset
- 1986 (late) - Goodbye Convoy giftset (Convoy, Alert, Ligier)
- 1986 (late) - Goodbye Megatron giftset (Megatron, Starscream)
Photo grouping which shows all the above mentioned giftsets. This is a real milestone for me and perfectly rounds out my objective nearly 3 years ago of streamlining and collecting only the early Japanese TFs.
