Video Footage from Transforce in 2001

Almost 18 years ago (crikey, has it been that long?) we wrote a review of our visit to Transforce in August 2001. It was a seriously hot day, but a great… [more]

Transformers Toys website for G1 Transformers

Written by Darren 'Starscream' Jamieson on March 25, 2009 | News,Toys,Toys / Action Figures |

If you’re looking for G1 Transformers toys online there aren’t that many websites you could turn to, assuming you don’t visit eBay of course, which has been most people’s port of call for some years. One website selling Transformers toys that has just come to our attention is www.transformerland.com, which sells G1 Transformers in abundance.

Unlike some Transformers websites that claim to sell G1 Transformers, but are always low on stock, Transformerland.com currently (at time of writing) has almost 2,000 in stock, so you’re likely to find what you’re looking for.

They don’t just have G1 Transformers either, they sell Transformers from 1984 through to the present day.

What makes it different though? Transformerland.com allows you to negotiate on the prices! Where else can you do that? Not even on eBay.

Another useful thing about the website is that it will help you to identify those parts you’re not quite sure of. Is it Grimlock’s sword or Snarl’s?

As well as being a shop, it also has a Transformers forum if you want to ask questions and mingle with Transformers fans.

Has anyone used Transformerland.com before? If so, let us know what you think.

  1. Have used transformerland in the past several times. Always had speedy delivery times and fast responses to any questions. They used paypal as well so it is extra secure! I would highly recommend this to any collector or enthusiast.

  2. I have purchased a load of G1 toys from Matt/Trance and it has been a pleasure to do business with him. I joined the forums as well and found everyone to be very friendly and great fun.

  3. I am one of the more active users on Transformerland (TFL). It’s a great site, the prices are fair, you can negotiate, as well as trade and sell. The items are always as described and shipping is reasonable and very fast! The forum is a small community, and we get to know each other very well.. All the members are helpful and kind. If you have a problem identifying a TF or you think it might be a KO, there are plenty of people who are knowledgable and can help! I would not buy Transformers anywhere else!

  4. I’ve been doing business of all kinds with Transformerland.com for over 5 years. It is my staple source for everything that’s not in the stores. His prices are the best you’ll find on the net, his descriptions are never inaccurate. Several times the figures came in better condition than I expected! TFL runs a very professional operation, and has the most accurate identification data around. If there ever is a problem, just talk to Matt (the site administrator), and he’ll work it out for you. You just can’t find a store like this anywhere else!

  5. A great place for any of your Transformer needs. I’ve found great items to an even better price and will more then likely make purchases in the future! Shipping is fast and I haven’t encountered any problems so far.
    Also, the fact that you can identify most transformers and accessories is an awesome addition. Extremely helpful!

  6. I was searching for miscellaneous partswhen I came across Transformerland.com. They had really great prices, and the people were so knowledgable and friendly, I signed up. I’ve been a member since 2007.

  7. Matt/Trance’s store is excellent, the prices are low and negotiable. The shipping is very fast as well. The forums is probably one of the friendliest corners of the ‘net.

  8. TFL is the place where I got started in earnest, back in 2001. Since then it has been a great site, but after 8 years it has grown up, for good. You won’t only find good deals on toys, but also valuable information to learn about Transformers, and a very friendly online community. Drop by, it’s worth a shot.

  9. Also a member of TFL. I may be biased but it’s a great site. The people there are very helpful. Toys are described very acturately so you know you are getting top quality if it says it is. Packaging to top notch with extremely fast turn around to ship the item(s). State side packages arrive via Priority mail so your wait time to get your transformer fix is minimal. Even with the slim chance TFL doesn’t have what you want another TFL member may have it. With most members having thier own, much smaller, for sale list in the forums. Again a great site I highly recommend.

  10. I have been visiting Transformerland since late 2007 (I believe). I have found TFL to be full of friendly faces (metaphorically speaking), great identification resources (for the collectors – parts and figures new and old), and a store chalk full of transformer goodness.

    I have made about 10 transactions with TFl and each time Matt delivers the goods. TFL is an honest store that lists items in plain detail (you always know exactly what you are purchasing), unlike some sellers on e-bay.

    If you aren’t into collecting, visit the forums and say hello. We’ll see you there.

  11. BUYERS BEWARE WHEN YOU BUY FROM THIS WEBSITE.

    I BOUGHT A DEEP DESERT BRAWL LEADER CLASS FIGURE FROM MR. MATTHEW CAMARATTA WHO RUNS THE SITE AND I NEVER RECEIVED IT!

    I PAID FOR PRIORITY MAIL SHIPPING + DELIVERY CONFIRMATION. TO MAKE SOME EXTRA MONEY ON ME, HE SHIPPED IT VIA PARCEL POST WITHOUT ANY DELIVERY CONFIRMATION OR TRACKING NUMBER.

    I FILED A CLAIM WITH PAYPAL AND NOT TO LOOSE THE BATTLE MR. CAMARATTA MAILED ME AN EMPTY ENVELOPE WITH A DELIVERY CONFIRMATION NUMBER ON IT. WHAT A SMARTASS!

    PAYPAL SAW I RECEIVED “SOMETHING” WITH THAT DELIVERY CONFIRMATION NUMBER AND CLOSED THE CASE, DECIDING IT IN HIS FAVOR.

    WHEN YOU PAY WITH PAYPAL OUTSIDE EBAY, PAYPAL DOESN’T KNOW WHAT YOU’RE BUYING. HAVING A TRACKING NUMBER THAT SHOWS THAT “SOMETHING” (=EMPTY ENVELOPE) WAS DELIVERED TO ME WAS ENOUGH FOR THEM TO CLOSE THE CASE.

    NOW, I DON’T HAVE THE $61.55 I PAID FOR THE ITEM AND I DON’T HAVE THE ITEM. ALL I HAVE IS AN EMPTY LITTLE ENVELOPE WITH A DELIVERY CONFIRMATION NUMBER ON IT.

    BUYERS BEWARE!!!!

    THIS IS FOR YOU ALL TO SEE THE KIND OF PERSON MATTHEW CAMARATTA IS: LOW, DISHONEST, A SMART-ASS PIECE OF S*H*I*T.

    HE RIPPED ME OFF AND HE WON’T MISS A CHANCE TO DO THE SAME TO YOU.

  12. The buyer here is reasonably upset, but the bottom line is he/she did not opt for insurance. If you don’t have insurance on your house and it burns down, will Allstate pay to replace it?
    Transformerland is a reputable company, been in business for well over a decade, has an uncountable number of positive reviews, and has unsolicited mentions in such publications as Mens Health magazine, for example:

    http://menshealth.coverleaf.com/menshealth/200906/?pg=78

    If you are reading this, keep googleing, this is basically the only bad review I know of…and keep in mind how difficult it is to please every last person when you deal with 100s of people a week for over a decade!

  13. Ordered a G1 Optimus Prime from the site a while ago. Because I don’t have Paypal, I might just have to cancel the whole thing and go somewhere that accepts debit card.
