    Selling it off. But in losing my collection, I'm uncovering some great memories. There are so many great photographers on this site, rather than do comprehensive shots of a figure, I'll post some shots that focus on one or two aspects of it.

    Red Alert is one of my first TFs ever.

    I forgot how small the G1 combiners are...

    I loved the Dinobots, but Snarl was the only one I ever found as a kid.

    I hate that you're selling your collection, man! I know you have your reasons, though. I've always really liked your photography, and I hope to see more from ya. Thanks for sharing your fond memories, man :)

    Thanks Superquad7...it's hard...I started selling with my MoTU, Marvel and Spawn...saving the transformers for last. I hope Gobots aren't too off topic!

    Feelin' a bit Spay-C. I loves space shuttle alt modes. I'm sure I have an Astrotrain, Blast Off and Sky Lynx somewhere. Group shot coming as soon as I can find them.

    Some Gobots had great alt modes...

    ...and some had no alt modes...

    Nice job Omega. Even with the blurry shot! I loved the vehicle Voltron. I have it all somewhere, but the sea vehicle combo is beautiful.

    Beautiful, beautiful images. I love Snarl and gozod jpg. (I am sorry I don't know who that is) pics. Your toys are fortunate to be captured like that. I hope they will find good home :)

    Hey eagc7...selling them to make room. The transformers are the last to go and I'm keeping a stash. I live in an apartment and had a room dedicated to toy storage. Which was becoming an...issue.

    Hey SydneyY! That's Zod from the Gobots. A big blue three wheeled monster. Glad you like them, your photos always blow me away!

    thenatureboywoo...thanks, that means a lot coming from you. Love your photos too.

    Some die-cast Robotech

    I couldn't have said that any better. This is certainly a bittersweet thread. I've enjoyed your photo work for quite some time dp :thumb

    Stratos....winged monkey man....with a jetpack. MoTU is really weird looking at them again. An odd mix of medieval, weird tech and magic.

    I'm lovin' the motu. I almost started collecting those again a few years ago. I got Skeletor and He-Man. But I never found other's in stores, so I gave up. So in other words...MORE MOTU PLEASE!?! :)

    You have some classic stuff. I don't know his name, but I'd be interested in that orange forklift Gobot. I had it as a kid and would be happy to take that off of your hands.

    I didn't realize MoTU were popular around these parts. I have 36 originals sitting in a duffle bag just waiting for a photo shoot.
