    Notice: When I do updates, it isn't going onto page one. Check the last couple pages of the thread for new stuff.

    I am currently redoing inventory and organizing things, but I figure I can show my old pictures from in storage. When I'm finished doing stuff I will take new pictures so these will have to do for now.

    Some of the items in these pics I might not have anymore due to flooding. I haven't gone through everything in the bins yet so I'm not quite sure.

    Yes old picture. That bottle is no more and Brave Max isn't in that location anymore. Now is hidden away in a closet. :( 
    Too big to put anywhere. Even when I kept it in robot mode, too big (I need a bigger house) to put anywhere, so used him to hold the door open.

    You've got some really cool things!

    I had nearly forgotten about the "Last Day on Cybatron" set. I used to have it when it first came out. Tons of fun, though I guess I ripped it open before I noticed the misspelling :lol

    Thanks but OMG I didn't notice it until you just mentioned it.

    I have some more pre-flood pictures of various video arrangements. Some of these things were damaged, like the PS1 PAL Beast Wars game. Other stuff seems to be totally missing so far, but I only get to go through my TF stuff once a week or so due to time.

    [​IMG]

    Not sure if this counts tho. I collect sports cards and took me quite a few months to put this together:
    [​IMG]

    Back when I had the house to myself, these dudes hung out in the kitchen
    [​IMG]

    This guy too, which (odd) on Shmax it says I am the only one there to have it:
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]

    Everyone needs to have their Ratbat. I got this for $40 back in 2000 or 2001
    [​IMG]

    Ever have one of those times when you go to a convention, and then look it up online later and find someone took a picture of you? Well that didn't happen for me (even during the TF Panel but that's another story) except this is close enough:
    [​IMG]

    See the story behind that is I bought the last one at the convention, which means the one in this picture is the EXACT same one I bought. Strange.

    You may notice I make mention of "floods" so I should show these too. Be warned! May make you sad!

    [​IMG]

    Not much to see here. There is a MOC Ramble there in case you were wondering. This one you see a G2 car near the (new) "bottom" stair:
    [​IMG]

    Aftermath (brown repaint) Armada Starscream?
    [​IMG]

    Gobots Game and GI Joe HQ. Note the water mark on the bin on the left. Of all my bins, they all floated on top of the water. All except one. The one with the Cryotek and RID Megatron and Supreme Cheetor, etc.
    [​IMG]

    You can tell by the crack in the floor that the floor isn't exactly even. Which is why Castle Greyskull doesn't look too bad, and the fact that the Command Center made it out, but in previous pics the water line was really high. That Mistubishi box had all my TFieds stuff in it.
    [​IMG]

    And the worst carnage of them all...
    [​IMG]

    That appears to be all the pictures I have online. I may have some more at home. I won't take any new pics for awhile tho.

    As mentioned elsewhere, a friend and I are going on a weekly garage sale binge this year, or going to attempt it. To start off we went to the flea market, a couple garage sale stores and a couple Gamestops on Saturday. I spent probably about $100 total and I think that included food. The loot includes:

    The Bourne Identity DVD

    I just realised that I am posting this based on a picture I took of everything, and that since I had to work yesterday, I ended up mixing my ebay stuff in with the rest of it. Oh well, I shall continue...

    DVD
    Wayne's World
    Tomb Raider
    The Reaping
    Mortal Kombat: Annihilation
    Sopranos Season 4
    Transformers Season 2 Part 2
    Pokemon: I Choose You! Pikachu!

    All the DVDs except TF, Sopranos and Pokemon came from Ebay.

    Playstation
    Madden NFL 97
    NHL 99

    Playstation 2
    Simpsons Hit & Run
    Contra: Shattered Soldier
    Castlevania: Lament of Innosence (sic)
    Aqua Teen Hunger Force: Zombie Ninja Pro-Am
    Family Guy Video Game
    Flipnic Ultimate Pinball

    In case you can't tell, all the PS2 games came from Gamestop.

    VHS
    Sopranos Season 1
    Sopranos Season 2
    Sopranos Season 3
    Little Shop of Horrors (original)
    Rocky III
    Pokemon: Poke-Friends
    Castle of the Walking Dead
    The Passion of the Christ (or as I like to call the Jesus of the Christ)
    Super Dave: Con Job
    Ghostbusters: Heroes, Haunts & Hilarity!
    Captain Power: Future Force Training
    M.D. Geist: Director's Cut (bought on accident. Have it already)
    Ernest Goes to Camp
    Winger: In the Heart of the Young

    You may find this strange but the Captain Power videos are actually really good. Ok the live action part is kinda lame, but the animation portions are good quality. A lot better than I expected. I haven't watched this particular one yet, but if it is as good as "Skill Level 3" then it should be great.

    Ok enough delaying...
    [​IMG]

    Not too bad I say! Hope it won't be my best haul this year tho.

    The TF Season 2 Part 2 I saw at the flea market at a video game stand. I didn't go in there for any particular reason or anything and just happened to see it sitting out. I picked it up and saw the price tag for $20. Then I opened it up and checked to make sure everything was there. I looked left, I looked right... No hesitation! Bought it like that. I've been looking for this since... well it came out and the cheapest was $160 on Amazon. Now I can finally say I have all of G1 on DVD. I didn't before, I had some on VHS, now I am set. And also now I can put it in the good DVD rack downstairs with the rest of my TF DVDS:

    [​IMG]

    Ok actually I am wrong. I also have Armada and Victory on DVD but the cases are too large to fit in that rack. Next up, Headmasters!

    So that was it, I wanted to take those two pics and write a story, but then I thought of the people who look at my thread. Do they want to just see my pile of VHS tapes I got or my really old collection pictures? Of course not, I'd have to at least post some sort of TF picture. So I decided to take a pic of my main TF display. NOTE: I still haven't inventoried all my TFs yet. Notice my collection number... So this display isn't set yet. And of course the picture isn't that great but whatever.

    Lot of great pieces in there. And a lot of reminders about several I missed picking up between Machine Wars and Energon when I was on the road a lot and don't even recall visiting a TRU during that time.

    And yeah, those flood damage photos are heartbreaking. I experienced just a fraction of that when my garage got flooded. Any boxes sitting on the floor were soaked through the bottom 6 inches. The loose items cleaned up but I lost a lot of mint packaging and my Star Wars collection took a big hit in value. It actually caused me to stop collecting Star Wars except for Crossovers and the occasional Vader and Yoda figures.

    But your loss is on a much larger scale than mine. And I've had a couple friends lose everything in house fires. It really puts some things in perspective, doesn't it?

    Also glad to see another fellow flea market junkie on the boards. Most of my 500+ DVD/BR and 300+ CD collection was bought for less than 75% off retail.

    I don't know how many total videos I have. I have a four day weekend coming up, so I'll be doing some spring cleaning and take pics of all my video racks too. Also should probably take some pics of my (other) TF videos too.

    As I mentioned here (and the fact that some people on another forum have been asking for pictures) I decided to do a full afternoon of cleaning to allow me to take some pictures. It was primarily of videos and games, but since I have TFs on some of those shelves, heck I'll take some pics of them too. Unfortunately, my camera isn't the best in the world, or at least it sometimes decides to work better some times or not... So these are picture with TFs in them!

    PS3 games. No updates to the TF section on the left which I had taken a picture of previously. :p 
    [​IMG]

    Still a messy video game/TV setup. TV is up top. My Win98 PC (Shiva) is located on the left, and there is a G1 Air Raid in there someplace (trust me). FYI: this photo has been edited.
    [​IMG]

    Technically another TF item in this pic. The Animated backer card (used at Blockbuster) is barely visible in the lower left. This is where I keep my extra hardware and games without boxes.
    [​IMG]

    Barely visible is Cop-Bot on the left. An interesting find was this Xevoz Razorclaw toy with an insane amount of articulation. My Patlabor Revoltech makes another appearance as well.
    [​IMG]

    Cop-Bot is here too, this was the larger shot after I realised the two toys didn't come out too well. There is also a PS2 Transformers (Armada) game in there. Its in alphabetical order in case you can't find it.
    [​IMG]

    There's some neat stuff on top of that shelf, including my boxed Canadian Jetfire, and my broken (but still standing) Dai Atlas.
    [​IMG]

    The end of my video shelves... I think I'm posting them out of order. On top of this is the Beast Wars glass you got for buying a toy. Not sure where, I got it from Ebay after the fact!
    [​IMG]

    There are more TF videos in the bottom two shelves here
    [​IMG]

    On top of this shelf is some more toys. You can see Scorpy, and there are boxed reissue Starscream and MIB Kingdam red Jet Robo (looks just like Starscream btw) hiding behind there. Also hard to tell because of angle of the photo, but Boulder and Darth Maul are standing on Optimus Prime's trailer. Not just any Prime tho, its the Red Feet Optimus Prime!
    [​IMG]

    These represent video racks 2 and 3. I have 6 video racks, but only #1 (the one with the PS3 games) is downstairs and only has DVD or better. Starting with Rack #2 there are VHS. Obviously I already posted pictures of racks with VHS but these are the beginning. On top of these two are some boxed items like Top Spin and Twin Twist, Beetras Beet-Gugal and and AFA among others. I recently found out that Hunn-Grrr is a bootleg. BOOOO
    [​IMG]

    Downstairs again we have a little knick-knack shelf. I will show the bottom first. It has Soundwave with a Rumble... errr... Frenzy tape inside. I chose that one because Frenzy is technically broken, so the only way it can be displayed properly is inside Soundwave. Also the awesome Bing Crosby ice cream box I found at an antique store and the infamous Billy Ripken (black box) error card. Behind that weird donkey/flower cart thing is a Tony Iommi card.
    [​IMG]

    And lastly I'll show something without TFs in it. If you want to see the rest, you can figure out the URL of my pictures and get back to my PB to see whats in there non TF. Warning, lots of hockey cards! Anyways, up top is a couple of Spawn toys, and a Star Trek II Wrath of Khan on Beta!
    [​IMG]

    Hope you had fun reading and looking at these!

    We had a realtor come over and look at the house. She said she liked how I had my TFs arranged, but when it comes time to show the house, better box those up. I guess it is common for people who go to look at houses to steal things?! Well whatever. I wanted to reorganise my video shelves so that I didn't have to lay down any of the clamshell VHS and could also stand up the Armada box set. As such I rearranged everything, but ended up taking most of my TFs down that were in the above pics and put into storage.

    I'll take new pics later. I also got some items I left in my car. I forget what exactly.

    Here is another thrift store haul:
    [​IMG]
    All VHS plus a Jem find your fate book. Finding that Pound Puppies video was neat. I totally forgot about watching that show as a kid.

    Hehe, Hubcap & Crankstart are easily 2 of my 3 favorite scouts, the other being Bombshock so he's not exactly in the same boat.

    Also, seeing Snapper & G2 Inferno brought back some good memories, while seeing your flood caused some bad ones to surface. Gotta love the irony behind DepthCharge & Rampage being among the victims, though. :)
