    2 years ago when Classics came out I was amazed by the line, I had recently gotten back into collecting Transformers when Armada came out and stopped collecting after energon ended, on Dec 06 I purchased Classics Voyager Optimus Prime and was given Classics Voyager Megatron for Christmas. In February 07 I bought Classics Starscream and after that they were cleared off the shelves for the movie line :( . I spent a lot of time and money scouring the net for more Classics, I got Grimlock off of HTS, Rodimus off of eBay, deluxe megs and Bumblebee in a trade, Mirage and Henkei Astrotrain off of BBTS, Cliffjumper off of eBay, Jetfire from BBTs and Classics Devastator, Ultra Magnus and Skywarp in a few trades and tonight I just got the last piece in the mail: Classics Ramjet. My Classics Collection is now complete :D  Not counting the botcon seekers because they're too expensive for me to afford.

    It feels so great to finally have completed this collection and I will be adding to it, I already have in fact. Among my Classics Collection are an assorted number of bots and cons, the movie Drones as Decepticlones, Movie Big Daddy, Cybertron Cannonball, Universe 1.0 Silverbolt, Armada Cheeter, Universe 2.0 Sunstreaker, Octane and Prowl, BM Tankor, Energon Shockblast, Universe 1.0 Nemesis Prime, Cybertron Metroplex, Cybertron Galaxy Force Vector Prime, Universe Downshift as Classics Wheeljack and Armada Unicron.

    I'll be adding Universe Springer, Ratbat, Roadbuster and Dirge to my collection when they come out as well as Henkei Thundercracker hopefully.


    Thanks for reading.

    I got all the classics one mass retail figures (save a few legends) at stores while they were shipping. And with Ramjet that was a trick and a half. That MoFo was hard to come by. I had to resort to evil-bay, Robotkingdom, and the junkion exchange here for the exlcusives (Skywarp, Soundwave, and Devastator specifically). Still I wasn't totally satisfied. So like many I augmented them with Cybertron (Cannonball, Blurr, Overhaul, Metroplex, Downshift, Excellion, Swerve, Quickmix) and Energon (Downshift and Hotshot). Now with Uni/Clas 2 and Henkei it feels more complete.

    I also augmented my collection with non classics figures. I'll be adding movie Breakaway to my collection when he comes out.

    I'm also gonna backtrack across a few lines and add figs like Cyb Snarl, Cyb Brimstone, Armada Predacon, Titanium Scourge, Universe 1.0 Razorclaw, Energon Slugslinger and Swoop, Cyb Landmine and a few others.

    Congrats. It always feels great once you've finished a long collecting adventure.

    Now go get ready for the next wave!

    yeah I know, right now I'm looking for a job because I wanna save up and move out of my dad's apartment, then I wanna get my own place, a bigger shelf and continue my line of Classics/Universe.

    Funny thing: I had Henkei Ramjet and Jetfire preordered from BBTS but I canceled as soon as their pics became public, Ramjet looked really bland to me and I liked Jetfire way better than Skyfire.

    GF Guardshell should be here tomorrow, I believe he'll make a perfect Classics Scoop then I need to get Universe Dropshot, Galvatron and Acid Storm soon. I might be moving to england soon and I at least wanna get these 3 guys before that happens as the UK won't get them for quite a while.

    That really sounds like a good collection. I am a huge Classics/Universe fan and I have all the Classics along with all the Universe 2008 molds so far except for Blaster (who I don't think fits the character). I just found Acid Storm the other day so that was pretty awesome. I also use Downshift for my Wheeljack (good pick). Congrats on your cool collection and we are lucky to have such a great line going right now.

    Congrats man! Classics is an awesome line, my persaonal all time fav since it's what I wanted since I got back into collecting with RiD. I'm glad it's being continued with Universe.
