    Welcome to my affectionately named "House of Plastic Crack" which uses a term I learned when I first got into collecting GI Joe as an adult. Everyone was always on the lookout for their new fix hunting for the plastic crack. LOL. I'll try to make this thread as cool as possible and fill it with cool pics. :D 

    Now to the pics!!!

    Every one has those special items in their collection. This is one I had to track down. It is the same KO I had of the Diaclone Devastator back when I was a kid. I never thought I'd find one, until I looked. :)  My dad and I found it at the local swap meet out in Imperial Beach California. I never had a green version until Encore. This one I recently found on ebay. My kids and I now have a mild fascination with Japanese Transformers and Diaclone in particular.

    I LOVE these old Diaclone commercials.

    My G1 collection is definitely very special to me. These are the toys I had so much fun playing with and dreaming about when I was little. I was hesitant to begin the collection at first, but I am happy to have them now. It is a little bit of history and G1 will never go out of style. :)  if I had to greatly reduce the size of my collection, these might just be the last bots standing.

    I'll start with these pics here. Look for more G1 throughout the thread. ;)  Here are Season 1 G1 Autobots and Decepticons, a mixture of authentic G1, reissue, and KO.

    I did bail on most of my classics collection when I saw the MP line (especially the 3P MP taking off.) It was right around the time I bought my iGear Coneheads. I knew I had to keep the size of my collection down a little, so I opted to focus on MP. There are only a few classics I hung on to and fewer I wish I had back.

    Anyway, here are some of my MP Autobots and Decepticons with the Toyhax backdrops. I have 4 shelves that are a perfect fit for these backdrops (31x16x11) but they have larger and smaller sizes available. [​IMG]

    A post dedicated to the Fairlady Z brothers. :) 

    My first Transformer and still my favorite even though his character has taken a beating in recent years... Prowl. (Looking at you IDW) To me he is still just the logical and cunning right hand man responsible for much of the Autobot figurehead's (Optimus) success.

    I remember being so excited just to even see him for a bit on the screen when I was little. LOL. It was also really cool he sounded just like Duke. :) 

    The bot mode here is actually a KO I added reprolabels to. Being that the OG toy was so special to me, I needed to get these stickers to complete the look. The alt mode is the official Takara version without stickers.

    I will add pictures of my Masterpiece Diaclone Blue Bluestreak here ASAP. That figure has a special place for me because I remember sitting on the stairs and looking at the TF catalogue wondering who this blue bluestreak was that I never saw and wondering why there was a difference between the toon, toy and catalogue. I loved the Datsun brothers and that was the best looking of them all so I always had my eye out for it, but never found him.

    Lion Force Voltron was a huge part of my childhood robot collection.

    This is the Matty Collector version from 2012. When combined it stands 23", about the size of Generations Metroplex.

    I am also a big fan of Gobots. Probably because I might have had more of them than I did of transformers when I was little. I think they generally don't get a fair shake from TF fans and the toon is not as bad as people make it out to be. :)  Long live Gobotron!!!

    Anyways, I got on a Gobots kick awhile ago and found this MIB Headquarters on eBay as well as lots of my favorite little guys in excellent condition. These are the Guardians. I'll do a separate post for those darn Renegades.

    Honestly, I don't know if I am a bigger Transformer fan or a bigger GI Joe fan. That is a tough call. I certainly had more Joes as a kid.

    Here is a couple pictures of my Joe and Cobra army from a few years ago. I have been working on filling out the later years with a lot of cool figures and vehicles I have found recently that came "after my time." You'll find pictures of those later on in the thread.

    These are the ones I focused on getting first, most of the ones that were around in my prime years 82-86 with a few late comers thrown in.

    The 25th Anniversary was a very special time to be a Joe collector. To walk into the stores and see these beauties hanging on the shelf was truly a memorable experience. Ya know that rush in finding something new. HAHA!

    This is what got me into collecting as an adult. At first I bought a bunch "for my son," but when I found out there were other adults out there actually collecting this stuff it was all over. LOL. Now my sons have their own collection, but so do I.

    I don't own ANY carded vintage figures and this set and their retro look really fills the need to see these beauties on a daily basis.

    I was lucky enough to pick up the GI Joe Sideshow line when they were still producing them. I was sad to hear them discontinue the line. There were still plenty of great characters left on the table, but at least we have these beauties. :) 

    Cobra!!!

    I was out of the TF game before Headmasters came along, but when the Shout Factory released the classic Japanese toons on DVD I thought it was worth it to check out. My son and I really enjoyed watching them together and he even got a lot of practice reading by using the subtitles. So Headmasters have taken a jump to the front of the line as some of my favorite Transformers out there. My kids are ecstatic to be receiving the Headmasters from the Titans Return line out right now. I have gone back to get the G1, and am completing the Fansproject line and will put together a MP line from MakeToys and Fansproject offerings it looks like.

    Here are some pics of my G1.

    SWSS Clone Commanders.jpg There will also be Star Wars sprinkled in this thread. That was the third pillar of my childhood so I have kept up with some of the cooler new releases. My favorites are probably the new 6" Black Series, but I also have some of the 12" Sideshow and almost a complete collection of characters from the first 6 movies in 3.75". I don't have any vehicles for those guys though. My kids have all the vehicles. I decided I would only collect Star Wars vehicles in Lego, so I have just about all of those. Most haven't been assembled though. One thing about this collection is I never have to worry about being bored. :)  Anyway , here is some Sideshow Star Wars...

    Clone Commander Cody, Captain Rex, and Commander Wolfe
