    I got into Transformers in the early 90's when I was about 4 or 5, and got a couple during Beast Wars, Beast Machines, and Robots in Disguise. When Armada rolled around, I was watching every episode on television, and attempted to purchase every character from the show with my limited resources (allowance). When Energon was out, I purchased alot of the figures during the beginning, but then my interest started to fade; (I guess it was the whole end of Middle School, beginning of High School that did it). Anyways, I was at I think Target a couple of months ago, and saw the Classics line, and it "revved up" my interest in Transformers. And of course, I'm currently collecting some of the movie line. And I'm not a great photographer, so don't expect amazing pictures.

    Anyways, on to the pictures:

    Armada

    And yes, I do have a crapload of minicons, I just don't as of now know how to display them.

    Lol, I've noticed you around here and have been envious of your collecting. Thanks for the compliment.

    I'm envious of your Leader Prime and Megs! I would have them, but I'm saving up for BotCon exclusives.

    As much as I would like to have the Botcon Exclusives, I thought that the price for the Iacon package was outrageous. I wouldn't think once of spending $500+ on them plus however much the attendee figures would be. It would make my day, and even my year if some nice person were to give me a set... I know, I'm dreaming.

    Yeah I skipped on the whole Cybertron line. Not saying that it isn't good, but just that I didn't have any interest in Transformers during it.

    Hey Guitarhero09,

    Nice Collection! You are doing extremely well for a 16 year old. I absolutely don't know how ya did it, but you did it!!!!

    I'd like to make the following observations:

    1. Almost all your guys are pointing their guns downwards.
    2. Almost all your figures are standing in the "V" leg stance.
    3. The smaller figures are usually in the front with taller guys in the back.
    4. I can barely see Classic Astrotrain standing behind Classic Ramjet.
    5. You made Movie Scorponok shorter.

    I have the following questions as well:

    1. What happened to Classics Soundwave?
    2. Who is behind Classics Skywarp?
    3. What is the Tootsie Roll? Is it a pencil case or something?
    4. What is the "TOP" etching above Movie Leader Prime?
    5. Did you deliberately place both Movie and Classic Bumblebee in the relative same spot on two different shelves? You seem to have done this for Movie and Classic Starscream as well.
    6. Why is there an Optimus Prime Vehicle mode on the right edge of the Movie figure shelf?
    7. What happened to Movie Voyager Megatron?
    8. What happened to 20th Anniversary Optimus Prime?
    9. What happened to Pepsi Optimus Prime?
    10. Do you collect Legends Class?
    11. Do you collect Target exclusives?
    12. Do you collect Titanium 3" and/or 6"?

    RedOktobre

    P.S. I'm not familiar with Energon and Alternators since I do not collect them. Thus, I have not made any questions or comments relating to them.

    To answer the questions:

    1. Not that I don't count him as a Classic, it's just that I was never able to find him at a Toys-R-Us near me.
    2. Behind Classics Skywarp is Megatron from the DVD Two-Pack.
    3. The Tootsie Roll can is my "piggy bank".
    4. The "TOP" etching is part of the material, and was not put there by me. It's just a cheap bookcase, so I'm not complaining.
    5. Lol, I never noticed that.
    6. As of now, he is my only Legends Figure. So I just decided to place him there.
    7. AFAIK he is not out yet in the U.S.
    8. Didn't want to pay retail for him, and never was able to find him on clearance. I'll probably resort to Ebay someday and get him.
    9. Don't know what line I would consider him in, so I'm not really interested in him.
    10. Refer back to 6; as of now, no.
    11. Only Target Exclusive I have right now is Robovision Prime. I might get the Scout repaints later on, but I don't really consider them a part of the Movie line.
    12. No. I might get a couple that could be considered Classics, like Rodimus or Scourge.


    Thanks for all of the compliments, and keep them up!

    Maybe someday. Right now the shelf I have is good enough, but with more Classics coming, I will need more room.
