    Hi, here is the link to my collection:

    http://www.grimlock.fotopic.net

    I have been collecting Transformers for about 6 yrs. I started off with a small ambition: Collecting all triple changers. Next were the combiners. There is no turning back eversince.

    All of my collection are stashed inside my cabinets due to space constraints and I really hate to see them turning yellowish, especially those white ones.

    Thanks in advance for viewing my collection :)

    Thanks for your compliments. The 6 white headmasters cost me quite a fortune. They are my holy grail. :)

    Great collection you have too! So many of them, including Beast Wars! I used to have them but has since parted with them to concentrate on G1 vintages.

    Yours is impressive too! There are surely collectors whose collections are much better than mine. :)

    Awesome collection man :thumb s
    I understand people collecting Takara editions, however for my self I only collect Hasbro since I don't read nor understand japanse and I don't want things I cannot read/understand.

    Hi Puffmarko, your collection is great too. VSX!! One of those that I am still hunting for to complete my collection. Great work! :) 

    Hi SureShot90, personally I prefer Takara versions mainly for the styrofoam inserts, thus making the boxes sturdier. Hasbro versions in mint conditions are hard to find. Normally mint ones (MISB) are sent for AFA grading. Once after AFA grading, the prices tend to be too high for me :) 
    You have a wonderful range of Transformers. Keep it up :)

    Many thanks for all your compliments.

    hotspot17 - Thanks for welcoming me. You have yourself a fantastic collection as well. :thumb 

    puffmarko - You are too humble. There are always more powerful collectors here. Yours is wonderful as well.

    I was hoping to complete the entire Japanese collection by end of the year, but it looks like I have to extend it to another year though. Good things are hard to come by, thus it is also good for me to take a break after spending so much on them :)

    Yup that is correct, an american box in decent shape is hard to come by, but as long it isn't "trash" I'm ok with it.
    And yea I've spread my collection a bit. I took advantage of the fact that now I can collect MOSC/MISB TF's from newer lines since I now am so priviliged to collect them at their original retail price. Back in the 80ties as a kid it was limited what I could/would get... now I primarily get my G.1's loose, but if I can make a good deal for MIB or even MISB I do that... well only MISB I have are Turbomaster Thunderclash and Predator Skystalker from Europe's G.1 line.

    But it's great to see since a nice collection of that caliber you got there ! keep it up !

    Very, very, very impressive! Your drive for collecting the Takara Transformers must be comparable to mine for Hasbro releases. Likely even more I'd wager!!!
