Hi Everyone,

A friend of mine and long time collector has had his G1 Transformers and GI Joe collection stolen in a targeted burglary here in christchurch last night.
Only the toys in the collection were stolen so the person(s) responsible knew what they were looking for. nothing else was taken.

Included in the collection that was taken:
G1 Transformers, many complete, some with original boxes.
Original GI Joes figures and playsets, with cardbacks, orginal boxes etc.

If you see any suspicious items or lots for sale, please bring them to my attention.

Thanks!
Centuri

Reminds me of when my storage shed was broken into and only the Lego was stolen.
(Items were stored in computer boxes and I suspect whoever took things thought they were getting computers)

get them to make a list please, there is very few places they would be able to sell them that all of us dont have our eyes on, the more details the better, espelly if the toys have defects

I saw the post on trademe
What a shit thing to happen.
I feel sorry for the guy.
Nostalgia can't be replaced by money.
I hope they get recovered or start all over, better than not at all.

I've not been a real big fan of the GI Joe saga but I will keep a look out none the less.

I hope everything works out for him.

Pretty shitty thing to happen. If anything pops up I’ll let you know... do you know if they were taken from his store or from his house? Stink either way but
