    Hey there guys. Thought of sharing my collection pics with everyone.

    As said in the title, I only have a small collection. And I am a slow collector. I used to have a lot of transformers toys when i was a kid but back then i didn't know the value of the figures so everything ended up lost, broken and gave away to other people (I regret that now :( ). But now I start collecting again.

    So here are my transformers collection pics. Enjoy!:)  (feel free to give comments)

    Nice collection so far! Every figure you have is a strong one, so so far your quality-to-quantity ratio is very high. :D 

    And hey, nothing wrong with being a slow collector. Frankly that's probably the smart way to go. That way you a) can just focus on the stuff you really want, and not feel compelled to make impulse buys and b) not go broke.

    I once had a more seasoned collector give me some advice: don't be in a rush to finish up your collection, because collecting is part of the fun.... and once you're "done", it's sort of anti-climactic.

    Very nice. You chose some very nice figures to buy. I'm trying to downsize my collection, when it gets too big there are just so many figures you look at and think "why the hell did I buy that?" I have plenty of those. Small and select is definitely the way to go.:thumb

    I could not agree anymore. This is very true, and I myself am a quality to quantity collector, and I share the outlook of not being rushed to finish my collection.

    Great collection, keep it simple!

    Nice to see THS-02 Convoy is about same height as G1 Jazz.
    I always though it was incredibly small for some reason.

    Nice start for a collection, lots of greats figs in there :)  I'm a slow collectors too, and it's all good to be slow! Makes you enjoy what you have, and you appreciate more any new stuff that come in :D 

    And your choice of series to collect is great too; G1, Alternators, Classics, Movie, all good stuff in my opinion ;)  But be carefull with all the boxes, I have the (bad) habit to keep them all too, and it's starting to take a lot of space! And talking about space, looks like you bookcase is already full, you'll need an upgrade soon :p 

    Keep up the good work!

    Growing...slowly :D 

    Thanx man. Aprreciate it. :D  You're right I do need to upgrade the space. Look how cramp they are especially the G1s. Poor them.

    Thanx. Before I got the THS-02 Convoy, I thought the same as u did. I keep imagining and used my ruler to measure the 4 inches in height of Convoy (since I read a review and said that he is 4 inches tall). I keep thinking how tiny he was but when I finally got him, it's not bad. It's a great figure. Like in a review said 'it's a mini masterpiece Optimus Prime' :D
