    This is what I've gathered in approx. 2 years of active collecting.

    From now on I will add all new pictures to this first post only, so they're all gathered in the same place!

    UPDATED JANUARY 4TH! CHECK FURTHER DOWN IN THIS POST FOR TF GALORE! :) 

    Micromasters in no particular order (and yes, that's a bottle of saké underneath ;) )
    [​IMG]

    Clothing cabinet/temporary TF room:

    A lot of carded Cybertron toys: (most of them, actually, not counting exclusives since they're a real pain in the ass to get a hold off here in Sweden)
    [​IMG]

    Four keychain minibots guarding the lamp in the cabinet :)

    Ok, and now a few pics of my boxed TFs. Only the outer rows are seen in these pictures. There are two-three more rows of boxed goodies behind them :) 
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]

    A few movie toys:
    [​IMG]

    And finally, a box of spareparts/junkers/screws etc. + the two MiSB BW Primals I have for sale.
    [​IMG]

    Phew.... I pulled myself together today and took out all of my boxed TFs to take some proper pictures of them as well. Now that I have a proper camera, I won't be doing that again for a while...

    OK, first up:

    Cybertron Ultra Class and Leader Class figures
    [​IMG]

    Cybertron Supreme Class and Voyager Class figures
    [​IMG]

    Alternators and 20th Anniversary Optimus Prime
    [​IMG]

    Commemorative Series G1 reissues
    [​IMG]

    Misc. boxed toys - everything from Choro-Q Black Megatron to Spanish Classics G1 Optimus Prime
    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Hihi :)  I love the official movie t-shirt!

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Ok, here you go :)  Forget the first pic in this post ;)  This one's upgraded and more badass than before ;)  Overlord is still missing a few accessories though; R leg guard, dual laser, the middle ramp, and the missiles for the handun. The rest is in excellent condition except for some minor stickerwear, so I have to downgrade him from C9+ to C8+. Hopefully Retrolabels will make some Overlord stickers ;) 

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Cybertron Demolishor, Cybertron Hot Shot, Cybertron Brushguard, Movie voyager class Ratchet, Movie leader class Megatron and Optimus Prime, Optimash Prime, Revoltech Megatron, and Classics reissue Soundwave with Ravage and Laserbeak. I'm actually opening two of these, making them MiB, namely Optimash and Soundwave.

    [​IMG]

    Leader Galaxy Force Optimus Prime
    Deluxe Optimus Prime (Armada repaint)
    Deluxe Optimus Prime (Beast Wars repaint)
    Deluxe Megatron (Beast Wars repaint)
    Deluxe Smokescreen (Cyb. Crosswise repaint)

    I once said that my next tattoo would be Transformers-related, and today my own prophecy came true! :D 

    I went to the 13th International Tattoo Expo with my fiancee and my buddy Filip both yesterday and today. One of the tattoo artists present there was my personal favorite Johnny Lundgren from Lund, who has done most of my tattoos in the past. He was fully booked yesterday, so he told me to come back today.

    Here's his equipment box, with his logo:
    [​IMG]

    Taking the equipment out; or "the butcher tools" as Johnny likes to refer them to as :) 
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]

    Work in progress! He hit a spot on my spine where pain darted out into my left arm and all the way to the tip of my fingers. Ouch!
    [​IMG]

    And here's the finished result!
    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Throttlebots Wideload and Searchlight (For a friend of mine), seekers Skywarp and Thrust, and Cutthroat. Skywarp and Thrust are only missing their missiles, and I'm gonna reprolabel these bad boys later smile.gif Thrust actually came with all four missiles, but all of them are missing the catch tab, so they're useless... Cutthroat was the last 'bot I needed for my Abominus. Now I just need Abominus' left fist and some accessories for the individual 'bots to make him complete :)  After that, I'm gonna hunt down more seekers and the combaticons :) 

    NOVEMBER 8 UPDATE:

    I got not one, but two of my Holy Grails today! :D 

    First up:

    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    A totally awesome, sweet, C9+, complete, MiB Omega Supreme! :D  :D 

    The second grail I got was Trypticon, also C9+, but loose and missing Full Tilt's gun, so it's 99,5% complete :)  I was so excited over these two that I forgot to take pics of Trypticon though, so here's a shot of my "big 'bot" cabinet instead, after this upgrade:

    [​IMG]

    December 5th update

    I forgot to take pics of the stuff I got at the NTFA Mini-Con in Sweden, but they were a bunch of movie toys, and a complete set of Predacons :D  Missing a lot of accessories though :/

    Today I got an almost complete G1 Bruticus, only missing weapons for Swindle and Brawl. Fortunately I had a set of Swindle weapons, so I only need Brawl's weapons to make this guy 100% complete:

    [​IMG]

    January 3rd update: Cleaned out my Detolfs a while ago, added some, removed some, and they look much better now:

    Detolfs, bottom shelves:

    [​IMG]
    G1 Pretenders and RID Spychangers.

    [​IMG]
    G1 Actionmasters.

    Glass shelves:

    [​IMG]
    Targetmasters, Powermasters, Headmasters, and triple changers

    [​IMG]
    Misc. Transformers - minibots, BW Snarl, Grimlock, etc. etc.

    [​IMG]
    Combiner shelf 1 - Superion, Piranacon, and Bruticus. After the pic was taken, Bruticus got some nice, new Reprolabels.

    [​IMG]
    Combiner shelf 2 - Predaking, Abominus (left hand is a KO hand), Menasor. Abominus got the same treatment as Bruticus.

    [​IMG]
    Misc. Transformers 2 - Seekers, Insecticons, Laser Prime, G1 Galvatron, G1 Sideswipe.

    [​IMG]
    Last shelf - Classics.

    Added some stuff since those pics were taken though, like Classics Ramjet, and this awesome display:

    [​IMG]

    Will add MP-06 Skywarp to that shelf soon as well, and I'll try to get some elongated smokestacks for 20th OP.

    January 4th update:

    Woohoo! The mailman was nice to me again today :D 

    First, I got MiB Alternator Tracks and the inner 'bot for Pretender Starscream from Jay, and then I got this:

    [​IMG]

    Masterpiece MP-06 Skywarp, Revoltech Convoy, and the Classics Ultra Magnus Vs. Skywarp set! :D 

    MP Skywarp comes shipped in jet mode, which I didn't like since that meant I had to transform him to 'bot mode. All those horror stories about the wingpieces got me spooked. I haven't transformed MP Starscream for that reason. I was very gentle, which was kinda difficult since all the joints and parts were extremely tight, but I managed without breaking anything, and there were no stressmarks after I had finished. *phew* :;) :


    As always, comments appreciated :)

    Thanks! The Detolf cabinets are perfect for display and storage of loose 'bots, and they don't cost very much, and they look nice enough :)  They're pure hell to assemble though...

    Yeah, he was like that when I got him. I bought a big lot about a year ago, but I didn't see the missing arm in the pictures I got... Anyone got a spare right arm for him, with assembly? LMK :)

    Thanks :)  But I still think it's modest; too many loose G1, and too many G1 that I don't have. I also find it a bit annoying that I have an almost complete Cybertron collection.... *sigh* Oh, that first pic will be even better in a few weeks. I have an almost complete, C9+ Overlord on the way :D

    Sorry for doubleposting.

    Got a few PM's regarding the figures that are on top of my Detolf cabinet in the first picture. They're combiner 'bots from the Japanese Taiyou no Yuusha Fighbird(Brave of the sun Fighbird) series, from 1991. Three of them form a 'bot called Guardion (yes, Guardion, not Guardian. Damn Japanese! ;) ), and all four combine to make Super Guardion. If I remember correctly, they're named Guard Star, Guard Rescue, Guard Wing, and and Guard Fire. Guard Wing I have a duplicate of. They're almost complete, only missing handguns and a spring for Guard Star's super head.

    Will do, as soon as he arrives :)  He's missing the right leg guard, the missiles for the handgun, the middle ramp, and a dual laser. The rest is in top notch condition :D  That was $60 well spent ;)  I'll post a remake of the first pic in this thread and some close-ups as soon as he arrives :) 

    The missiles will be the hardest to get a hold of; but I have a backup: Metroplex's missiles are 99% identical, so if I can't find any real ones, I'll use some from that big 'bot instead.
