I'm now looking for a pair of foot soliders. Loose is fine and I don't even need the weapons. '88 version or any of the various reprints would do.
I would've been happy to help you out, but back in September and October I did a huge inventory clearout - one with an action figure sale where I sold what you are looking for, and the second as a vehicle sale with a Technodrome and a bunch of other stuff. Now unless I buy another collection I'm just left with my private, complete collection for as long as I decide to keep those.

To be honest, I think it's two fold. I agree that the social media groups have supplanted a lot of forums - even Instagram is huge for this now. But I'd also guess that a lot of the mainstay collectors have solidified their private collections and maybe traded out a lot of their doubles and so on by now. We are talking about a generation of collecting that has been 30+ years since inception and probably about 15 years since adult callbacks made the vintage toys popular again.
