    Hey there. Some background info before you comment: I can say that my parents didn't buy them for me, but I'm afraid most of my spending has been the result inheretance from a deceased grandparent who knew I love collecting things and even bought me one or two Bionicles as gifts. I'd like to think she'd be happy knowing that what she could give is going into this interesting endeavour. Anyways, henceforth! [All text relates to the image(s) above it, not below. They are in order from top left cubby hole to bottom right cubby hole, which is why the Bionicles are first, and not the Transformers.] (EDIT: I am no longer 15! Don't comment on my nonexistant 15-year-old-ness.)

    My monolithic display. This is the only thing here that was a gift from my parents, and I'm ever thankful!

    My Bionicles, Hero Factory sets and associated customs. One of the figures my grandmother got me is in the first image in this set, the yellow midget.

    My Animated collection- For a time, they were my favourite set, which is why they're one of the most complete. I did start losing interest towards the TRU exclusives, though.

    [​IMG]
    My Unicronians, Minicons, Classics legends, G1 figures and other nonstandard lines! Oh no, there's only one G1 figure, and it's a reissue my cousin gave me! Woe is me, diecast is superior to plastic, yadda yadda yadda. Well, I fiddle with my figures and I prefer them to not weigh the same as the core of a pulsar.

    [​IMG]
    Random, non-transforming, non-buildable stuff. Most of it is worthless except the WALL-E figures and the wooden WALL-E head, which I built myself as part of a school project. I also built a catapault with a friend, but he took it home because I didn't have enough space for it at the time.

    Continued in the next post because of built-in image limitations, which is kind of silly to be honest- but ok, whatever floats your boat you frivolious TFW005 forum software, you.

    (CONTINUED FROM POST ABOVE!)

    My movie figures- beware the beeeeezzzz! This is the only jump between items that are not on the same row, and it's only because otherwise the Decepticon range would have intefered with my next set.

    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    My pride and joy, the CHUGURTS range (jegus that sounds like a physically deformed person saying yoghurts) and by far the one thing I have spent the most money on, primarily because SDCC Bruticus alone was just shy of £200, which is the most I have spent on a single Transformer including shipping. The only thing that comes close is the 2010 Unicron that lives one row in the cubby hole grid above him. Also, some people may be annoyed that this includes WFC and FOC figures. To them, I say, you're complete nincompoops with no understanding of how their aesthetics bring them together.

    [​IMG]
    Home to the oddballs. The Transformers who I may love, and hold onto with a deep passion, yet lack a predetermined continuity stream placement in the cubby hole grid, or had one for a time but were ousted by my weird compulsion to only have one figure representing a character at a time in any cubby hole, or are a random powerlinx custom I put together as a joke then put back together again after some time. Of course I had to give up on this idea for the Movie section because otherwise all you would see is YELLOW in there, which would spoil how I love the rest of these figures.

    [​IMG]
    Here's the Aligned continuity stream figures. The only reason WFC Megsy's in here is because I don't feel buying any version of Prime Megatron is worth the money.

    [​IMG]
    I lied. There's some non-transforming, non-buildable stuff in this cubby hole too. My first video game ever was Sonic Heroes so you can see why I'm a fan of the Blue Blur himself. My Sonic Generation Collector's Edition ring is number 9482.

    [​IMG]
    And finally, here's my LEGO/KRE-O section. Not much to see, except I'm a happy builder of custom designs, or MOCs.

    Ultimately, there are around 140 Transformers in all of these cubby holes. That's not including the scrapheap, though.

    [​IMG]
    These are the figures I have either come to detest, are devilishly incomplete, or have broken somehow. They're the ones not fit to join the random assortment of love I keep in one of the cubby holes I mentioned above. I care not for their ways, or the feelings of the real people who for some indescriminate reason brought these figures into existance. I feel that every non-broken figure there is the worst possible incarnation of the character they represent, and in the case of Optimus I am including that time he turned into a Shoe. You know the one, if you lurk tfwiki as much as I do. The Jazz was a shame, though. I wanted to keep him but his leg snapped off and I had to replace him. The only reason these figures still languish in my house is because I am too stubborn to throw them away and too uninspired and unknowledgable of the postal services to sell them.

    All in all, thanks for reading. I hope you all have a great day yourselves. ;)

    I'm insanely jealous of your display. It's just so huge, neat, and organized! It all looks great, and is even more amazing because you're only 15! I admire the fact that you've purchased the majority of the figures by yourself (despite the inheritance, which, IMO, you should put aside in a savings account). Keep up the hard work. As a high school teacher, it's always impressive to see a young man/woman work hard to get what they want.

    Thank you! :]

    Thank you! The inheritance is in a savings/debit account, but it only got about £3 of interest in about a year because the ecomony is in the crapper... I'm not sure if it's worth it at the moment. :[

    Nice display. I'm fifteen as well, and my collection isn't nearly as big as yours. I'm jealous of some of your stuff.

    NICE bookcase! It's all one piece? That's damned cool! I'm only 17, You have a nice collection. I didn't start expanding my collection into stuff I missed and online buying till I turned 16, paid/pay for it all by myself, too. :)  Nice, though. There's some stuff in here I didn't have at 15! Nice, dude?

    And my new and extended Christmas-derived KRE-O collection! (The Bumblebee isn't new, but I did modify his design a little.)
