    I finally decided to post some pics of my Transformers collection (along with a few non TF items). I started collecting TF's after the first live action movie. Since then... I've been busy!
    What I am showing here is not everything I have, but what is currently on display. Movie wise, I pretty much have every figure Scout class - Leader class, but most of those have been put into storage to make way for the universe figures.. no clue how I'm gonna handle things what ROTF come out next year!!!

    I have all the G1 based Robot heroes as well, but many of them have also gone into hiding for a while.

    The only other figs I have stored away are my complete Master of the Universe 2002 and vintage troylines, plus a few random items from other toylines that have been in storage for some time now. Anyway, here are the pics, hope you like all the work I've put into the last year and a half of collecting :)

    Classics Seekers (Botcon Thundercracker is on his way in the mail as we speak)

    Nice! Looking at all your pics makes me want to go rip all mine open! I have been indecisive on whether to open all my latest purchases or not!

    The way I see it... if I didn't plan on opening them, I would just download pictures of them and save a lot of money :) 

    All jokes aside, I respect the MOC collectors, but its just not for me. Afterall.. Toys are meant to be played with. Granted, I don't really play with them as a kid would, but its fun posing them, and arranging them from time to time. Can't do the same with boxes.

    Just made some big changes to my display, so I'll try to get some updates pics up this week.

    I put away all the movie figures for now, and mainly focused on the classics line as the centerpiece of the black display shelves.

    New additions to the collection:
    Botcon Thundercracker (finally have ALL the seekers botcon/henkei/classics)
    Botcon Bugbite (don't have to reply on roomate's anymore, lol)
    Encore Soundwave
    Encore Seekers
    Cyclonus, Hound, Cheetor
    and a few new titaniums, alternators, and G1 cassettes in the mail as we speak (read)!

    Yes, I agree! I do open most of my toys, but I often regret it after the fact and then it's too late, too pricy to try and replace a MISB figure. So I tend to buy multiples of some figures, I typically leave giftsets sealed, or buy two, one to keep as a gift set, and the other to open. I tend to let stuff sit too long and once I am ready to open it, then I don't know if I should! I still have Armada and Energon stuff that's MISB. While most of my Cybertron and Classics stuff is loose and on shelves already. Not trying to take over your thread, just making conversation! :wink:

    :)  By all means, the more conversation the better!

    I know what you mean about the occasional regret after certain items are opened, but it usually passes.
    I know the "value" is dropped as far as the dollar is concerned... but to me, the nostalgic value greatly increases. I never buy toys with the intent to sell, so I don't usually worry about the price tag after an item is opened... though I do my bets to keep them as mint as possible.
    With any luck, these will go to my kids someday (when I have some). More than likely, they will see my toy obsession and be put off toys forever. I'll be the dad begging my kids to let me take them to shop for toys, lol.
