    The HighPrime Collection - MIB/MISB figures - G1 to Present

    ****IF AT ANY TIME YOU WANT TO SKIP RIGHT TO THE LATEST UPDATE, DO A PAGE SEARCH for "Reveal #x" or "Preview #x" (without the quotes; where x equals a number, for example, Reveal #2, Preview #1, etc.) Dates work also in a YYYY/MM/DD format****


    LATEST UPDATE:
    REVEAL #6/2011/07/09


    Hello all,

    I've kept my collection hidden from the world long enough. I have over 2300 figures (around 1725 when counted as boxed units) Everything is still boxed up, though, as I've been too lazy to get these up and displayed. So, I'll be (slowly) revealing a box at a time, then providing more pictures of the box' contents. Later on, I will get these out of their retail boxes and up on display.

    Just about every line ever released is present in my collection - from G1 to present - and all MIB/MISB. I have no loose figures (not that there's anything wrong with that!) You'll see hard to find figures such as G1 Artfire to more common ones like Car Robots Artfire. 3rd party items from FansProject, HeadRobots, iGear, and others will make appearances, too. I have a couple of Anime figures in there because I'm a KOS-MOS nut, and a pig :D  [Hey.. my wife doesn't mind them at all!] I've avoided most Transformers figures/items/memorabilia that do not transform, however. I have some incidentally, but things like busts, Actionmasters, PVC figures, etc. will be a no-show. Finally, Gary from Spongebob makes an appearance ;) 

    Please excuse the mediocre photo quality of these brown boxes. They are grainy and I didn't put any effort into making them 'pop.' :lol 

    Enjoy the brown boxes ...and today's first preview of the next update!

    2011/06/11 Reveal #1 - Boxes, Boxes, and More Boxes (+ a quick shelf peak)
    This is a crime, really. All of these Transformers spending their lives in factory sealed/opened boxes inside moving boxes. Over 60% of my collection is still sealed. The rest are opened. None are loose. The 2nd pic of boxes are actually 4 rows deep. As you can see, I have some figures out of the moving boxes. This is because I've run out of boxes to store them in! Need to contact Uline and place another order. The shelf in the last pic was left by the former tenants of my home. It will be trashed when I setup a new display. For now, they are basic storage as, again, I have run out of brown boxes :banghead:

    2011/06/11 Reveal #2 - United, Movie Lines, & More
    As promised Japan's United Transformers are posted below. I have the complete collection (save for the 2 unreleased exclusives, but I have them on preorder). A few of them are not shown below (Among them are the Store exclusive Targetmasters/Microns), though, as they are stored in some other boxes. When I get to that box, you can be sure they will be posted. I've also posted images of the stragglers that were not stored in moving boxes. Descriptions of each figure depicted will precede the photos.

    Enjoy!

    2011/06/24 Reveal #5 - G1 and a Lucky Draw
    Some of the rarer finds (for the most part) in today's lot. Many of these were obtained from fellow TFW board members as noted below. The D-78 Predaking was actually MISB before I bought it, however it was double-taped. So, the owner opened it up to ensure everything was there since it was not possible to AFA it. All contents accounted for. Whoot! Saved me a few bucks, too :D  Sorry the photos of the opened giftset are upside down. It looks normal if you were viewing the box with the handle facing you (as that's how you'd open it up.)

    Have fun?! ;)

    Thanks, CAP. For those that contributed very special pieces to my collection, I will be providing due credit. You most definitely are on that list. The 2 G2 figures you picked up for me are not in the lastest preview box, though :D 

    I don't deserve congratulatory recognition for not opening, but thanks! It's mostly laziness. I will open at some point.. mark my words. I'll tell you, though, the longer you don't open.. the harder it is to finally open that box up when the time arrives. Never realized that until the past few months.

    More to come ;)  Been lazy. Of course, still have Lightfoot. The day I get out of collecting is the day I sell this one off :D 

    I just bought Ranger (+ Carb) from Yigal, so now the only Godmaster I am missing is Doubleclouder :)  I will post the lot up once I have the shipment from Yigal.
