    Hello everyone, i thought it was a good time to finally post some pictures of my collection. But first, story time!!! Middly middly meeeoowww!!

    I've been a transformers fan since g1, being a child of the 80 s. We really did have the best cartoons. I had a modest collection of g1 stuff and beast wars through the 90 s, as well as a hefty comics collection.

    Disaster! Hurricane Allison came in like, well, a hurricane. And I lost the vast majority of everything, only managed to save some transmetals and barely hung onto optimal optimus. His maroon snow cone paint peeled off from water damage and the electronics were dead. But I kept him anyway.

    It wasn't until after I was married with kids that I got back into collecting. And the bug bit hard. What was once a box in storage exploded into a downward spiral of chug, 3rd party, and detolfs. I also took the time to rewire optimal and got his electronics working. Wooooooo!

    So, now here we go with some photos. Which is what everyone wants to see.

    Man you where not joking about explosion of figures and detolf cases. I love it can i store my collection there too next to the 3rd party and retail. Awesome pictures my friend i love it and jealous of the space and detolfs. Apts don't do space very well.

    (JK though about collection)

    Yea it was a wild ride last year. Most of what was released post beast wars didn't interest me much, I picked up some cybertron figures and Ramada starscream and that was it. Then Hasbro knocked it out of the park with titans returns, at least in my case.

    Then I started watching this place and found out about detolfs, and 3rd party. Watched alot of ebay deals till I found the transformers prime figures. Pretty much the same story for most of what I have now.

    I did have some of the detolfs lit with diy leds, but I've added more detolfs and had to unplug everything. Have to figure out how to power that many shelves now.

    Excellent collection. Love the mix of Prime, Movie, RID2015, Beast Wars, and Generations.

    That's a really nice collection! My favorite part is the trio of Seekers on the wall; it's such a dynamic way to display them! Where did you get the stand from?

    This is correct, I bought the yet I stand wall mount with 3 xl arms. It was pricey. But I like it. Wanted to free some detolf space also.
