    Been gone since 01FEB05 on a deployment, but I kept up with my collection with internet purchases. Had to have them all sent to my house, where my boo has been forced to pick them up regularly on her lunch breaks from the post office, then store them for me. She's been great.
    Just had my two weeks R&R leave, and finally got to hold some of the toys I've been looking at and reading about for the last 11 months. It was awesome.
    So here is everything I came home too...

    All the GF Destrons (with red, blue, and yellow Rumbles), the US exclusive 'Cons, and half the minicons.

    ...and the reissue Sideswipe, Astrotrain, Kup, Perceptor, and G1 OP, with Binaltech Shockwave, both Prowls, Smokescreen GT #2, Wheeljack, and Alternators Swerve and Decepticharge. Also, BTA Sunstreaker and Red Alert, and the small white box is the OTFCC exclusive.

    Damm that's an impressive haul.

    Glad you made it home safe even if only for a couple of weeks.

    Stay safe.

    Man I start to go batty waiting for stuff after a week, I can’t imagine waiting to open up all those toys after almost a year. Guess it just goes to show how spoiled most of us really are.

    Great stuff, hope you enjoy them wile your back, you sure have collected a mound of great stuff there, defiantly something awesome to come home for :rock  I dont think I see a toy in that pile I dont like lol

    Awesome haul, enjoy the R&R, and most importantly stay safe.

    And last...

    [​IMG]

    Bunch of misc. Universe, Energon, and Robot Masters. And MP Magnus (hoping dalinaj makes the add-on armor), and the Mini-Cooper psuedo-Alternator (lame).

    Not shown was THS Galaxy Convoy, who is AWESOME. Can't wait for the THS G1 Prime, even if the whole 'redo Convoy' thing gets old.
    Other things I've learned getting back to my toys...
    1. Light piping is the greatest toy feature ever for it's cost. The greatest.
    2. Eureka 7 toys are lame part-formers.
    3. GF has some of the best TF toys I've ever seen in any line. It's making me turn my back on G1 (until the filler line and movie toys are out, hopefully).
    4. I'll never buy from Toynk.com again. Hope others have had better experiences, but I was very dissapointed.
    5. This board is fantastic. I mostly lurk, but I love being able to come on here and follow TF stuff, even when I'm stuck overseas. Thanks to all of you that do contribute to fandom. Seriously. One day, I hope I'll be able to throw some kitbashes or dioramas in the mix.

    Lol, I envy the haul but I don't envy having to decide on which one to open first.

    damn, when i got deployed, i just gave up.....on my R&R this past October, i bought me Alternator Jazz....maybe when i get done in 4 months, i'll start up again.

    sweet haul though....and at least your girlfriend doesn't mind picking up stuff....mines, after the rims, tail lights, headlights, and fog lights, she said she will not pick up anything else (can't blame her, the rims were heavy as f**k)
