    My wife bought me MP-03 on Christmas 2006. For some reason I didn't even really think about collecting until September 2010 when I ordered an MP-08 and MP-04s. Since then, I've slowly built up a collection that I'm super happy with. Some of it's purchased online, some from members here and at tfw, some from retail and a few from my parents basement.

    Updated shot of part of my collection (04/13/14)

    Black Primes

    Masterpiece

    Mastermind/Mech Ideas

    FansProject

    [​IMG]

    Miscellaneous

    Anyway, thanks for looking. I really couldn't have done it without the help I've received from members here - either directly or reading through archives. Thanks!

    old collection…


    [​IMG]

    I mostly collect 3rd Party, Masterpiece and black versions of Optimus Prime now…

    Here's FansProject and Maketoys shelf…

    Here's the MP's and alternators that i have. really happy with this as they're some of my absolute favourite.

    and now black primes…

    I limit myself to 4 shelves, one for Autobots and the other for Decepticons, the third for MP's and alternators and now one for Black Primes.

    I'm almost content with the Autobot one - can't really think of too much more I want/need that's currently out (or within my budget!) other than what's on the way/unreleased.

    thanks! i play around with them so much they're always changing. of all of them, warbot has had the most poses. can't wait to get the heels for him to try even more stuff.

    Here's a link - damn you sensible ikea! depending on what comes out over the next couple years i may get a third one of these. they're so easy to set up and i think they're sharp.

    thanks! :lol 

    ya, it's an NES with my first TF on it and an Atari 2600. Both still work which is kinda cool.

    Became a huge fan of puns when my father introduced me to the Piers Anthony's series 'Xanth'. Make jokes all the time at work. People just look at me like I'm crazy. Just makes it all that more fun. heh

    Nice on the 2600. Still have mine as well. Snagged some old games from the family recently, and got the count up to 150. Not sure how well they work, or how many actually work. Thought about setting up all of my consoles (have every console I've ever owned), but after starting collecting transformers, there's just NO room for anything else.

    Keep my first NES in my bedroom. Works to this very day. Play Super Mario ever once in awhile, but mostly play Tecmo Super Bowl and Nambungo's Ambition (think that's spelled right). Both those games are still fun. Everything still works like a champ. Crazy considering I've ruined several XBox 360 controllers, and my controllers from 25 years ago work without missing a beat.

    On the collection note, it looks like you tried to get characters that matched their size where possible (maybe not, but looks that way to me). Which rev of Kup is that in the middle there? Was thinking he should be shorter than hound/etc from the G1 cartoons.

    those humourless bastards ;) 

    i have about 20 games - you can make them out to the left of this picture. everything but Chopper Command work.
    [​IMG]
    i have the current consoles(including 3 360's - one being hacked) plus the nintendo, atari, game gear and a few different gameboys and ds's.

    I wish hound was a little larger. that's generations Kup with the iGear replacement head on it. I don't go out of my way to get scale, just worked out nicely that way. a couple are way off - mostly the MP's and metroplex.

    thanks!

    thanks so much! right now i'm so looking forward to the 3rd party stuff to fill up the deception shelf. also, i need to get some clear risers for it as i use the trailers to help on the autobot side. hopefully tycoon will help this year.

    mp megatron is awesome. so damned impressive.

    Of course man. I love the mixture of takara and hasbro... u have a good eye for color, bc not EVERY henkei is better by all means, and u seem to have a lot of the "right" ones there.

    I love how these are displayed - they look well "composed", if you know what I mean... Like how an artist composes a drawing or painting. Seriously!
