This is all the fault of my soon to be wife. You see, a year or so after I first met her, I casually mentioned that I had saved a few toys from my childhood through the years. Two boxes worth, roughly the size of regular file storage boxes. She tells me I should display them. They see the light for the first time in at least a decade, and I start to notice some are missing parts and my six month collecting habit is started. As I went through online databases, I found a few figures I missed and I purchased them for the first time (like Fortress Maximus). I knew about my second year of college that what I had could be worth a couple thousand, but I still kept them for sentimental reasons. I always thought I would enjoy sharing them with my kids. Now I realize they have gotten far too fragile for that; they are really just for display to take me back to an earlier era. It is not perfect. Cyclonus arm peg broke off when I first got him back in the day and is being held together with glue. Same goes for Vortex. Reflector was the only mail away that I ever got, but I lost the middle guy but kept the arms and lens part. I found an armless one at auction, but I think he is a vintage knock off. I combined everything to make a nice looking figure though. You will also noticed many are missing weapons...as expensive as a fist for Predaking was, I couldn't imagine spending that to outfit my armies with everything they're missing. I have a strong feeling this will be as far as I will take it. I appreciate feedback about this...is it all junky? Or decent? I have avoided all reproduction parts, this is almost 100% vintage. This is my first post here Fortress Maximus. You will notice Spike has been replaced with Gort. There are too many reproduction Spike's on the market to take the chance at getting a fake. Has a new sticker set, I'm upside down per the value now; I blame the economy. Early Autobot cars and Dinobots. These sets really got me into collecting these once again, I love the detail, scale versus the later G1 line. Metroplex and my original Prime. No fists, and at the going rate and my finances lately, he's going to stay a trailer. Headmasters. Gort is on vacation with Cerebros. Nothing like spending $40 for a head at auction The start of the evil Decepticons. Megatron is beside Octane, not really visible. The jets and 1986 movie tie-ins. I still love that movie, one of the finest animated flicks ever....glad to see it got some respect in re-release. Starscream! A couple decepticon headmasters and we can't forget Shockwave I still had the collecting bug, so I dove into some of the newer Bayverse movie 'bots to fill in some of the character holes from G1. I never did like the toys for Ironhide or Ratchet, but I do like the new ones. My newer toy collection is much smaller and is for another thread.
