    Updated on June 2010: Finally got the chance to display everything. But then again, there's always more improvements needed to be done. You can see I'm a fan of G1 and reissues. It doesn't bother me. I rather have new stuff than old beat up figures. You need to play "where's Waldo" to find all the hidden stuff. Or just look at the rest of this thread for individual photos. Pretty much got 90% of G1 done, just a few for figures. All the micromasters are stored in tupperware but they are all accounted for. Enjoy.:)

    Original first posting in 2007. Updated the first posting as of June 2010.


    Been on this forum and another one for a while now. Started seriously collecting a year ago due to the Philly TF meetup. My original plan was to start collecting once I get out of grad school and start my career. But after talking to some local fans and the movie, I got scared that the prices would double by next year. I should have started collecting when ebay first started. I remember seeing giftsets for $40 and fort max MIB for $60. Oh well.

    I was raised by Transformers G1. So I mainly just collect G1 but will pick up other lines. But my G1 collection is my pride and joy. Here’s some of the MIB or special items I have. I have majority of G1 loose and complete but their all stored in Rubbermaid bins and it’s not worth my time taking a pic of each figure in zip lock bags. :p 

    My pride and joy: MISB Italia Defensor Giftset

    Unused Fort Max: Never been removed from the foam (also has most of the foam pieces too…)

    The condition is lower than I want but I got it for under $100, so I can’t complain:

    I have a weird curse where when I want a really hard to find toy, I always end up getting doubles of it. Just look at galaxy shuttle.

    Sounds like someone is green with envy? :p 

    Don't worry about the grandus and sky garry. I got something coming your way that should make it all up. Something that you need and that nobody else has. :D

    Good thing your G1 collection eclipses all the beast wars onward collections. As always I am always more impressed with collections that have a G1 flavour to it. There are too many saturated collections with the new stuff that everyones collection looks the same other than the way they put their figures.

    Thanks for the kind words Puffmarko. Means a lot coming from you. :) 

    And thanks everybody for the comments. I got two more gems coming in the mail. I hope to get those up before Botcon. I figured to post my collection to let people know that I'm serious about G1. :D

    Yeah I have to add you to my facebook. I would add others as well but some may have things they want to hide. go figure.

    I would put up my pictures too but I got tired of people thinking i was being competitve or them thinking I am their competition.

    I am taking a ZEN approach :)
