    Hi, I'm fairly new. I originally got into TF's cartoon and figures because my Uncle was a big fan and would draw me the characters in both forms. My uncle collected G1 and gave them to me in 88' when my small interest in it got bigger. I collected until about 96' which included some G2 toys but sadly my collection was sold by my dad when I was in my early teens and heavily into wrestling. I've always liked Transformers but I got out it, it was Beast Wars that brought me back. Then after Beast Machines is when I lost complete interest.

    When I took art classes in a vocational school my friends got me interested in TF's again when I saw that most of them had MP Prime, well fast forward to 3 weeks ago before my birthday, I was seeing some deals on hasbro, ebay so I bought some and I'm completely hooked again. I think my Uncle would be pleased to see me back into Transformers. He passed in 91', 4 years after he gave me his g1 figures.

    Sorry for the long story, okay onto my collection so far:

    Hmm. What's wrong with Beast Wars? You say that like there's something wrong... I love Beast Wars, dammit!

    Anyway, nice looking collection. You have some really nice figures in such a short time.

    Thanks guys.


    I have a BT Blue Prowl on it's way from Ages Three And Up. Then I have a trade on another board for Alt. Optimus & Mirage for 3 of my Marvel Figures. I'm getting Hound & Swindle for $50 shipped. Then I'll let my wallet cool down for bit before SDCC where I hope to get some deals.

    I got my BT Blue Prowl last week, my Mirage, Prime, Smokescreen should be here by the weekend. I'm getting a Hound & Swindle soon in a trade.


    I'm going to start re-collecting Beast Wars TF's once I find out which ones I have left and after I get some more Alts. & MP's.
    I'm definitely going to look into getting some customs. I have a thing for getting customs. I tend to spend more on customs than actual figures.

    New pictures of my alternators added.


    I found a few tapes that have Beast Wars, and G1 TF's. I need to buy myself the DVD Collection for the TV Series & Movie.

    I had all of Beast Wars on tape when it first aired. I checked my boxes from when I moved in 2005, more than half my VHS collection which had wrestling, GEN1, BW TF's were ruined except the couple that I work.


    The Gen1 Seasons were passed down to me before my Uncle passed in 91'.


    I checked and have these:

    Season 1, Episode 1: More Than Meets The Eye (Part 1)
    Season 1, Episode 10: War Of The Dinobots
    Season 1, Episode 13: The Ultimate Doom: (Part 3) Revival
    Season 1, Episode 16: Heavy Metal War
    Season 2, Episode 30: Dinobot Island (Part 1)
    Season 2, Episode 31: Dinobot Island (Part 2)
    Season 2, Episode 38: Desertion Of The Dinbots (Part 2)

    Transformers The Movie

    Season 3: Episode 66: Five Faces Of Darkness (Part 1)
    Season 3: Episode 67: Five Faces Of Darkness (Part 2)
    Season 3: Episode 68: Five Faces Of Darkness (Part 3)
    Season 3: Episode 71: The Killing Jar
    Season 3: Episode 88: Grimlock's New Brain
    Season 3: Episode 91: The Face Of The Nijika
    Season 3: Episode 94: The Return of Optimus Prime (Part 1)
    Season 3: Episode 95: The Return of Optimus Prime (Part 2)

    Season 4: Episode 98: 98. The Rebirth (Part 3)


    The beast wars, I never wrote the episode names down so I'll have to check on that. But I plan to buy all three complete seasons when I get the figures I want first.

    I figured I would post pics of MP/Alt. Ironhide that JAF is making me:

    [​IMG]
    It's the exact model of G1 Ironhide cartoon/toy vehicle mode, 1984 Nissan Sunny Vanette.

    Arms and legs have been attached correctly. JAF had to go to the Skids arms due to the small size of these Nissan Van shells. He should be able to bulk them up with styrene though. He's doing the final fit for the van shell. The door and rear window panels are only held on with putty for these tests. The next hurdle is determining the best way to fold up the doors, roof, and rear hatch. The last pic gives an idea of the way the bot folds up in alt mode.

    Some info so far:

    The van mode has no front wheel attachments yet. The wheels you see are just holding up the chassis for effect. Windows are tinted blue and the windshield is not installed yet.
