    Updated Collection pics (July 24, 2012) Many items packed away right now (G1, Classics) until I get some detolfs to display them. Here's what I have out now:

    Side Dresser, just some cool figs and MPs:

    I love the deluxe movie cliffjumper for some reason:

    Night stand- The Bad guys (Scourge, Shockwave, Sixshot, MP Meg upgrade kit and some botcon posters that Curamen hooked me up with):

    hey everyone. Since I enjoy looking at others' collection threads so much I thought I would share mine. Been collecting since the fall of 2010 when I purchased MP Grimlock and I was sucked right in. I dug up all my old guys and basically bought everything from retail I could find. I love the Bay-verse movies so my collection is focused mainly on classics and movie-verse. Classics I have the pokemon syndrome (gotta catch em all) and the movie toys I only try and get the "best" version of each screen character (ie/ human alliance and leaders whenever possible). So, I present you my collection.

    Movie Corner

    Top Shelf: Power up prime, voyager bad guys (I don't really like leader tftm megaton so I went with the premium voyager) and bonecrusher

    [​IMG]
    Middle shelf: human alliance, some leaders (voyager ratchet is hiding in the corner)

    [​IMG]
    Bottom Shelf: deluxes, human alliance, leaders, voyagers etc lol

    Classics Corner

    ...first!



    Love the G2 Ramjet, but seeing the BM Blackarachnia like that pains me to no end. It's almost like she lost a game of musical chairs that your figures were playing on the corner unit :lol

    bahaha, yeah I just started setting them up in the corner units and I was like "man, I don't have room for the deceptions". Well at least I managed to wedge the seekers in there (although I don't have a ramjet yet)

    Looks like you need some more shelf space! :p 
    It's a shame that your WFC Megatron isn't out on display
    Though I like how your classics shelf looks

    I really like those corner shelves. Nice usage of space. :)  I might try something like that.

    As for your collection, very cool and you have a lot of figures. You need more room though, which is probably a problem all collectors deal with. lol

    If you meant the hanger thing, I remember having one of those that ended up breaking. Apparently, they aren't designed to hold 50 lbs of clothes at a time, especially when you try and climb on it to get up to the high shelf...


    Also to Big Dawg, how long've you had that gold Battle Ops Bee?

    thanks. And I don't think we actually use bigger balls anymore... although it made for quite the advertising campaign in the 90s.

    Ugh, yeah me and shelf space are in an eternal battle. I have about 5 large rubber made containers filled with trade bait etc. guess I need to be more selective

    Thanks man. I'm starting to get into G1 now so I better find a new place to store things. I think an Ikea trip for some detolfs may be in order. Anyone have any insight as to how stable detolfs are with little ones around (I have a 1.5 year old at home).

    thanks. the wife and I put that up a couple of weeks ago. Excellent storage although we had to customize it a bit to add extra shelves/reinforce it.

    Thanks for the heads up, although I'm pretty tall so I shouldn't need to do any climbing.

    I got the gold bumblebee from the walmart sale recently where he was clearanced for $20- although he has was unfortunate and can only tune in to french radio stations. I hear "personne ne peux attraper Bumblebee" randomly lol

    And thanks to everyone for looking- I really appreciate the comments.

    Yeah, mine only gets French reception too, but I think is hilarious. Plus, I took the batteries out within like an hour of having it in the house couse I didn't want it making noise all the time or leaking all over itself, so its all good. Someone on Cybertron.ca said these were 20 bucks, and it was like yeah... this is definitely worth the 45 minute drive to the farther Wal-Mart after the close one didn't have dick.
