    Hello all! Well, I got a digital camera for xmas so I can now finally show off my collection. I actually have two separate collections - my original G1 collection that I had as a kid, and my brand new collection that I just started back in February. I will post pics of my new collection first then later I will update with G1. So, I hope you all like them. My collection isn't nearly as grand as many of the ones I've seen here, but I'm happy with what I've got. So, here goes.

    My UPDATED Smokescreen display as of 5/23/2014:

    Well, that about does it for my new collection. I will post pics of my G1 collection shortly. If you look close, you can see a tease of my G1s in one of the pics above. See if you can spot it!

    Anyway, thanks for stopping by and taking a look.

    Wow, that's a huge, kick-ass collection you've got there!

    The best one was the Rocky Miniature statue that you had in the back though ;)

    Yes, I love my Rocky statue even though it doesn't transform! :lol 

    Thanks, NP. I just saw your collection, too. Very good start.

    I'll have my G1 collection pics up by tonight or tomorrow. Stay tuned!

    Well, I don't usually keep the bubble boxes for the very reason that they are almost impossible to keep looking good once opened. But I made an exception with Alt. Rodimus because he was an exclusive. So, all I did was open the bottom and undid all the twist ties and what not. Then I very carefully pulled the plastic bubble away from the cardboard on three sides, leaving the fourth side still attached. Then, after I took Rodimus out, I just put the bubble back down and taped the three sides with scotch tape. And, of course, I closed up the bottom, but that was the easy part. Honestly, I got lucky with Rodimus' packaging. It almost looks like it was never opened. Usually, they are pretty much destroyed when I open them.

    Yeah thats the problem i always have. I find it easier to cut them out carefully than rip the cardboard to shreds. Its like operating on a person when i open mine.

    My G1 Collection

    Okay, so it's time to show off my G1 collection. Now, back in the '80s I had them all, and I played with them hard. Around 1990, I stopped collecting and my parents packed them all away. Seventeen years later, after I started my new collection pictured above, I ventured into my parents' attic and rescued most of my G1 toys. Five boxes worth! Anyway, I brought them over to my house and painstakenly went through them. I was surprised that many of them were in very good shape. Others, however, looked horrible and some were even broken. I did my best to sort through the weapons and match them to the figures, but many I simply couldn't find.

    So, here are the ones that were in the best shape and that I had room to put out on display. Hope you guys like 'em.

    I updated the below pic of the bottom shelf. Predaking now has his gun mounted on his right arm. He also has his sword in his left hand. It's hard to see but it's there.

    And here's something non-TF related. My small Alien and Predator collection.

    Here's several more pics that I just took. The first seven are of those old Transformers Collector's Cases and their contents. The rest are of posters, the chess game and a snow globe. Enjoy!

    I just got a new addition to my collection today. It's the rare #7 car of Binaltech Smokescreen! Got him off ebay last week. I didn't think he'd arrive before the New Year, but here he is!

    I'll be updating my Smokescreen/Subaru display in my first post with this guy once I make some room.

    I also have some TFs on my desk at work, but I can't take pics until Wednesday at the earliest. Thanks again for stopping by!

    Here's a few pics I took at work this morning. I'm limited on how many TFs I can have at my work station, so it's not a lot.

    The overall shot:

    Alternator Smokescreen. Yes, ANOTHER one! This guy's plastic and was the first TF of my new collection.

    I also updated my first post with new pics of my Smokescreen/Subaru display at home. It now includes my new BT Smokey #7 car.
