    Packed away? Did you move or just storing them? Nice shots by the way!

    Thanks. Yeah I’m moving to Canada next month so I’ve had my collection packed away for the move and while we were showing the house to be sold. I had to build crates around my cases this past Saturday to protect and make moving them easier.[​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]

    Moving is the pits. Your cases look secure though. No blankets for the glass? I would dread taking down my cases. I guess its a good thing they are all glass and frameless so I could stack the glass, but its really heavy (350lbs).

    Good luck with your move and safe travels to Canada, ehhhhhhhhhhhhhh ;)

    Thanks. And they should be fine. They will be expertly stacked in the truck and then to the storage unit in Canada while we live out of a suitcase for two months. We have an apartment booked until we find a house to buy. Exciting times ahead full of optimism and opportunity:)

    So, figured I'd try and take advantage of the BBTS sale right now, and was planning to buy G2 Sideswipe. During this, I found both versions of MP Bumblebee on sale. I'm more interested in the G2 version, but I don't know if I'll like him or not. How would you guys rate MP BB?

    Ok gang, I've a real problem on my hands. I forgot about a candle burning overnight and luckily enough, it was hanging from the ceiling and nothing but air was around so no fires. But down below...

    ...not looking good at all. I'm guessing the wax got into the joints so what's the best way to clean up this mess? Hair dryer perhaps because I'd like to avoid dunking them in water.

    Oh. My. God.... Well, after I got done crying, I'd get the worst of it off by hand, and then yeah, hair dryer to melt the rest out of the joints. Oh, I'm so sorry... That's a truly sad scene.

    I thought something exploded at first before I looked up at the candle. I started getting chunks off of Megatron and UM and Rodimus have light blotches of wax so hopefully that'll come up fast. But yeah, it's going to be an operation and may have to take Megs apart in certain places.

    So sorry @Agent 539, that sucks.

    But damn, your MP-36 looks so pissed off - that facial expression is perfect!
