    Hmm, at this point in my life I think I wouldn't go past $950 for an Overlord. He's the main big-ticket item I'm looking for right now; all of my other wants are slightly if not significantly cheaper.

    I have managed to get most of my big items by either buying incomplete and repairing or for trading something else to lower the cost.

    Depends really on how you wish to run your collection I guess?

    The most I've spent was £100.00 for year of the horse mp10 prime.

    I still get a little rush whenever I see G1 Hardhead. That's the nostalgia right. He'll always be one of my favourite TFs. I'm so glad TR (technically Takara, I know) Hardhead was such a good figure.

    Yup. Of course, 11 year-old me was ecstatic, and I did get to mess around with the shells (Dad didn’t trust me with the internal figs, which i totally get now). The shells were a little sticky, but totally cool!

    Yes it does. I see the new statues coming out and the prices and think it's nuts.

    Hi
    Got reunited with my childhood g1 toys today. Havnt seen them since the 80/90's. Not much but thought i would share them here :D 
    I remember I wanted Megatron, Soundwave and the rest of the Dinobots so baaad but couldnt find them in my local toy store here in Sweden :( 
    But good times it was!
    Today I collect Masterpices. Got hooked with Transformers again when MP 10 was released :)

    Cool, thank you!
    Too bad most of them are a floppy mess or so damn tight that they probably brake if I put force to them, when trying to transform them :eek:

    about 3/4 of a room of classics or $2100 usd. with the others like dinoking and such, i have had great deals, so one being close to the market value didn't bug me much.
    ooh, is that a Ceji Starscream? darker silver and plastic wheels?
