    Hi there!
    My Armada/Micron Legend/minicons/microns collection got many holes filled in the last few weeks. I posted lots of pics on my blog:
    http://transformersarmada.blogspot.com/

    By the way, this older blog got deleted.
    Now the url is: http://armadatransformers.blogspot.com/

    I am also completing the Vehicle Mode part of the Ultimate Magna Jet Convoy Gallery.

    Anyway, some pics (what's ANY TF thread w/o pics?):

    Nice collection! I do have two questions, though.
    1. How many minicons do you have? (all of them is not an acceptable answer, even if it's true)
    2. What is the black/gray/white Armada Demolisher in the 12th picture (the one behind the clear Micron Booster police car)?

    Hi, thanks!
    1. Sorry, but... I -almost- have all minicons except the following:
    -any minicon which came with Lucky Draw TFs;
    -unreleased stuff, prototypes, testshots, 2008 BotCon minicon exclulsive(s);
    -2 Kabaya microns;
    -Classic Nightscream's repaint, Dragoyell.

    One year ago they were around 300, but I guess I am now around 500, because I also collect Armada and Micron Legend stuff, thus raising the total. I never counted how many different minicons are out there, because as you can see it takes me less tme to count what I DON'T have :drunk 
    Mrduce could give you more accurate numbers, probably.

    2. My collection has some customs: Night Attack Demolishor (too bad it was never officially made, except the BTR version), Universe Ramjet's originally planned minicon set, Energon Ratchet (not in the pics), 2 minicons I made for Primus and Dark Scorponok... and that's it. Also, N. A. D. has 2 firing shoulders: the other Armada Demolishor on the same shelf has instead 2 NON-firing shoulders.
    BTW there are also 2 bootlegs: the purple, blue and yellow Star Saber and the green and orange Skyboom Shield, they are in the same picture.

    1. 500 or so is A LOT of minicons! Good luck finding the last few you need.

    2. It's a very nicely done custom, as are the other ones mentioned (except Energon Rachet, cause I can't see it, but I'd assume it looks good). It had me thinking it was the real deal :D  The KO Star Saber and Sky Boom shield look pretty good, too. They almost have a "lucky draw" feel to them. Or a really bad G2 homage.

    Thanks! Actually I was going to buy them some weeks ago, but after all this spending I prefer to waste money on TFs that are actually rare, not just overpriced items. So, within this year I should at least have everything except the Lucky Draws and unreleased items.

    Thanks, it was my first custom ever and it's my favourite one too. I agree on the bad G2 homage, lol

    Hey can you tell me what the smaller Armada Galvatron (Megatron?, the purple one either way) that is?

    And very nice collection. Havent got into Armada much, the only one I have is the smaller Optimus Prime. Actually maybe you can answer another question, if you dont mind. How does that smaller Galvatron compare size-wise to the deluxe size Armada OP?

    I guess you mean Galvatron General from Superlink, Energon's Japanese counterpart. It joined my collection just yesterday, BTW. It's an Ultra, and twice taller that "small" deluxe Prime.

    I'm sorry I was confusing Armada with Energon. It would be the Energon Galvatron I was wanting to ask about. But still comparing it to the deluxe Armada OP.

    In those pics you see 2 Supers and 2 Ultras, that deluxe maybe is half as tall as the ultra version

    I moved some pics from another, obsolete thread. Now it's more faithful to what my collection is at the moment... lots of stuff is gone, lots of stuff arrived since some other post.

    This summer I'll probably try to make another set of pictures. It takes lots of time and space, basically. Space, mainly.

    These are pictures from April 2007, when I was starting to complete my checklist. Not shown in pictures there also are: DVD microns, several ML partner microns... and all the stuff that followed:
