    I had a World Record book in my bathroom and I sit there and read it. Sometimes I wonder if anyone on TFW2005 as ever tried to apply for the record of the "most transformers figures" collection. Thay have other records for most of "any given item" collection. Anyone know someone that could make a run at it?

    How would one count?

    Loose? MISB?

    Multiples of the same toy? Packaging variants? Single pack/multi-pack doubles? Reissues? Redecos?

    ^ I would image that every TF counts as one wether it's in package or not. And each duplicate would count as well.

    Ebay:
    I personally know two collectors whose collections are the same or more volume than my own (over 5000 pieces) who have no online presence and keep their collections completely private.

    That alone leads me to believe there are many other extremely large collections out there that nobody knows (or will ever know) about.

    this what i always figured was the case as there are always collectors that prefer to collect quietly, and it doesn't matter what they collect, they don't want attention as they feel collecting is a private matter

    Its kinda like that Stan Sansweet who owns the worlds largest private Star Wars collection. You hardly ever see him.

    But that means they don't exist because they are not on thez intenetzz, and if they sign up here today that would make them a Noob.

    I'm being sarcastic here.

    I'd imagine this is a common problem with "world records". By necessity they have the most/biggest/longest or whatever they have been able to record rather than the record in existence.
