    alright, here goes. it took me 3 hours to put this post together, but it's like the part of my collection that I put the most effort into building anyway, so I wanted to get it right. hopefully I labelled everything correctly. I do of course have classics prime and the fansproject trailer, but I keep all of my primes together on another set of shelves. I also use animated cybertron prime as orion pax.

    ever since the first set of classics came out 5 years ago (!) this line and its progeny is what I had really always been looking for as an adult collector, once binaltech died out. I made some customs in here if there was a mold that just stood out to me that I felt should've been a particular character, so let me know if you have any questions. as far as having an energon/animated/whatever version of a figure in this set versus an "official" classics release, I have done so because I like those particular figures better than the official version.

    thanks man! aside from binaltechs, my first love, this is where most of my custom effort went, and you saw me through most of it :thumb  I must've spent a better part of a month making my own version of the botcon 2007 seekers since I couldn't afford the boxed set.

    yup, as long as I could find an homage, I'd usually take it!

    Nice collection! :thumb  You wouldn't happen to have a close-up of Cybertron Red Alert as Trailbreaker would you?

    here's the requsted pics! for any other customs of mine, click on my sig. I've got two sub-folders, one of my minibots and one of the custom seekers I made.






    by the way, this trailbreaker wasn't my original idea. I can't remember his name, but there's a customizer here that did this and a hoist, and I got my inspiration from him.
