    Despite the size of my collection, I've been buying Transformers since the debut of Beast Wars (I believe that was around 1996? Please correct me if I'm wrong), but at the time I was only a child and naturally just wanted to play with them. Now that I have matured, I realize the fun in just collecting them. Unfortunately, back around 2000-2001, my family moved into a new house and many of my Transformers figures (mostly Beast Wars) were packed in boxes and put into a room in the basement. Well, one day we got a big storm and sadly, the pump in the basement stopped working during the storm and the basement flooded and destroyed 90% of my Beast Wars figures. After that I stopped buying Transformers untill late during Transformers Armada.

    I still have a bunch of my Unicron Trilogy figures in my Dad's storage unit, but this is what I have in my room (I apologize for the clutter but it's the only shelving unit I got right now):

    My Animated Shelf, I'm aiming to get at least one of every mold in this line (Deluxe, Voyager, and Leader) with the exceptions of Voyager Megatron and Leader Bulkhead. (Missing from this shelf are Soundwave and Jazz)

    [​IMG]

    My Movie Shelf, including a few classics and Cybetron Megatron. Missing from this shelf are Universe Prowl and Universe Octane (Tankor):

    And Finally, the few Unicron Trilogy figures I do have out of Storage.

    I know it's a small collection, but it's slowly growing and is very special to me.

    Very nice! And Nice PS3! :D  And is that a VCR :eek:  What I'd give to be able to watch some of my old VHS again.

    Do you have problems with dust though? It looks like it'll be a hassle to clean every few weeks.

    Thanks. Yeah it's a VCR/DVD Combo, I have so many good movies on VHS that I don't want to buy again on DVD, so I just had to have a VCR.

    It is a real pain in the a** to dust though, right after I took the pictures I had to take every figure off their shelf to dust them and the shelf itself.

    I plan on getting Leader Megatron and Ultra Magnus.

    I do like the Universe line, I recently purchased Prowl and Octane but didn't get a chance to include those in the pictures. Same goes for Animated Soundwave and Jazz. The Universe line is very good, although I unfortunately got a Prowl with the paint defect, but I keep him in robot mode anyway so you really can't tell.

    if ur talking about the paint defect on prowl's doors, then i gotta say its pretty impossible to get one without....lol...i simply transformed mine without touching the doors, caaaarefully..and just left in him in robot mode..sad, that..bt better than having smudged doors :D 

    yeah, the TFA leaders are great..u might want to mod megatron's legs, as theyre a bit hard to pose, IMO..also, some might disagree, but i prefer leader bulkhead over the voyager, purely because of the size, really...it seems wrong that bumblebee is as tall as bulkhead, when u watch the cartoon and see all the fun poked at BB coz of his lack of height..
    the universe ultras are also really awesome, especially onslaught..and hasbro has done a great take on G1 powerglide with this new figure...wat else? oh yeah, classics 1.0 or henkei.. probably my favorite line

    I'm just gonna leave Prowl in robot mode and get a new one to keep MIB. I'm not picky about scale really, as long as Voyager Bulkhead and Lugnut are in scale (which...obviously they are) then it's good enough for me. I am starting to be persuaded every time I see the Headmaster gimmick.

    I regret not taking advantage of the Classics 1.0 re-release back when the movie line was in a drought. Sometime this week I'm gonna go to walmart and get either:

    A: Swoop, Sentinel and Sunstreaker
    B: Onslaught
    C: Blitzwing and a Deluxe
    D: Voyager Optimus and a deluxe

    now there's a good point...voyager lugnut is pathetically undersized..very sad when next to a leader bulkhead..ah well

    u seem to be going for a big haul this weekend, good luck finding wat ur looking for ;)  yeah, i missed the classics re-release too...was lucky to find cliffjumper, reissue soundwave and grimlock recently...other than that, the rest i had to get henkei versions (most of which i find better than hasbro)..i know its much more expensive in the US, but over here in singapore, its the same price as hasbro :D

    I got around $30 from selling a bunch of Yu-Gi-Oh cards I have accumulated a couple years ago so I'm definitely coming home with something. November 27th will be a good day since I will turn 18 and be able to get a decent job without going through the hassle of my school administration, then I can get my collection rolling at a much faster rate and get some of those nice Henkei figures. :)

    Thank you. :D 

    Oh, and I doubt anyone noticed, but the white dot on Animated Starscream's head is a little painted AllSpark fragment.

    Nice stuff you've got there! And I'm glad you could re-bound your hobby even after the basement flood. ^_^

    Thanks! It was hard to restart after that. I missed all of RID because of it.

    Anyway, here are my newest additions:

    [​IMG]

    Soundwave, Jazz, Octane, and Prowl I've had for about a month but they weren't pictured. The Spychangers I got about a week ago, and Prime and Acid Storm I got last night. All are excellent figures. I love the classics Starscream mold so I can't wait to get Henkei Starscream now.

    Despite what I've read here on the boards, the card was in perfect condition (more so than the one's I've bought in stores) and the shipping was pretty fast. I ordered it on the 9th and got it on the 13th.

    To be honest I didn't mod him at all. It's kind of just sitting there. The wings are folded over it and the white buttflap is holding it up from the bottom. It's not securely attached, but for display purposes it works.
