    Getting there…

    It’s been a long time since I got to do one of these threads. It’s been more than a year in fact.

    Since then, we’ve been burglarized, moved twice, and been to two BotCons.

    Nearly seven years ago I started this collection with a G1 Ultra Magnus. It’s hard to believe that I’ve made it to the point I am at.

    I realized an important lesson early on in collecting: Goals are important. After that, I discovered another important lesson: “All” is a bad goal to have…

    I started my collecting by buying everything and every good deal I could find. This was something that has been a real boon and a serious hindrance.

    My goal in collecting from the beginning was to ‘re-create’ a new, modern, G1 Universe. This started with Armada, continued through Energon, flourished with Cybertron, and is now seeing completion with the addition of Classics. This is everything, minus a few bits here and there. There are variations, Microns, energon weapons, and other assorted rarities hidden through out.

    I won’t say too much more here. I hear rumors that I might get an interview sometime soon and besides…I think the pictures speak for themselves.

    Ask any questions you’d like

    Marvel Legends Face-Off display stands...they fit perfectly up in the seekers.

    Fortunately, no.

    I think they had their hands full with the rest of our stuff. Actually, I have heard that though expensive, TF toys are notoriously hard to fence due to parts, necessary info, and the easily trackable nature.

    Thanks to you and all the other kind comments.

    I swear, my bloodpressure drops like 5-10 points when I walk in that room and smile. :)

    Impressive. Most impressive.

    When I started collecting again with the G1 Anniversary reissues (Prime, Magnus, and Rodimus) RID was just starting and BWs were ending. I started to buy every RID, then Energon, then Armada, then Cybertron, etc. I just had to back off, it was getting a bit crazy and my collection was starting to look like yours. I ended up getting rid of everything but my original G1s, reissued G1s, and Classics (link below my sig). I'm so much happier and less stressed out.

    I'm glad you're able to keep yours and that you have the luxury of getting a collection that size. Good luck keeping it dusted!

    wow...thats flippin' amazing! love the classic seekers. wish I could find thrust, t-cracker and Dirge to complete my collection. sigh. Like Bfarneth...my collection is G1 (and the incarnations of it...reissues, etc.) and movie stuff. Until recently, my collection was displayed, but sadly now it resides in crates until I get the basement cleaned up (just moved the other day). I hope to display mine once again someday soon.

    but I ramble....again, nice collection!!

    I like the seeker display, but why does everyone seem to have Masterpiece Prime & Foretress Maximus but me!

    I've found the easiest way to get a good Fort Max (if you don't have the money up front) is to piece one together over a year. It takes time but in the end it's worth it.

    I should point out that I don't have Fortress Maximus, but Brave Maximus instead.
