    No children allowed... except me :D 

    Latest addition is the 3 foot Optimus Speaker tower, so have been having some fun with it... just because I was bored today, and demented. :p 

    Various Gen1-shaped Optimus Prime toys with the Speaker....

    Now that it is more socially acceptable, more Transformers seem to be playing with themselves these days...

    And it seems that my new Optimus Prime was out on the town last night, and got smashed on too much high-grade Energon...

    Hmmm... I think I need to get out more. :p

    No really I do.

    Damn, a whole room just for toys, and only you can enter?
    Where do you live by the way? Can you give me your full adress and country, I'd really like to come and visit (prepares a pair of plyers, bansaw, a gun, flash light, a prybar, mace spray, 10 big garbage bags....)

    I know that you're only kidding, but it is something I worry about ever since a friend got robbed and had several of his sealed rare TFs stolen (as well as non-TF items). As such, I don't let anyone I don't already know have my address now. I wonder if anyone else has that fear, or has been robbed and had their TFs stolen.

    That is a thoroughly impressive collection and setup! And you even have space for stuff you don't have yet, that's a very interesting thing to see.

    WHO SAYS I WAS KIDDING??!!

    J/K, really, I'm lucky I don't have those fears, nobody will try stealing my tfs in my country, you know "tfs are for kids!" here. Besides I've got 5 dogs now. Ultimately, after getting bitten on his arse to many times for even Satan to tell, the would-be thief would get himself shot (to death preferably - NOBODY STEALS MY TFS, DAMN IT!!! :mad  :Gouki: ) by me or my dad.

    P.S. I see you'r in Australia, YEESS!

    whoa.... just whoa... I hope to someday come across some of the rarer stuff from Japan, such as star convoy and DEFFIANTELY Overlord. I wish to god they would reissue him. I would so buy that when I had the money for him. Love the way that you have this all set up as well, nice cases. Ive got 2 shelves, one for Bots n Maximals, and one for Cons. Once I get settled into my new house with my girl, Ill set up a nice display and snap off some pictures for all to see.

    Just a quick update, after passing a few milestones in the collection recently.
    - After 20 years of drooling over pictures of it (because it wasn't released here), I finally got a Fort Max toy, which completed my collection of US Hasbro Gen1 toys.
    - Reached 1,500 different Transformers toys, which I think makes it the largest collection in Australia (that I know of).

    It is a loose figure collection, with only 13 figures still in packaging out of the 1,522 figures I currently have. (I don't include figurines in that total, like HOC's, TRM 3inch, Happy Meal toys, or decoys)

    Freaking sweet. That is a great set-up and a great looking collection, and you even took some excellent pictures to showcase it.

    Right now, I have my office semi-dedicated to my TFs collection, but when I build my next house, I am doing something similar and putting in a room specifically for my collection.

    Very nice.

    Definitely one of the better collections I've seen, particularly due to the set-up.

    Thanks guys. It was always a dream of mine to have the collection set up like this, since years ago when I started getting seriously into TFs.
    It certainly beats having them all stored away in boxes, which was where most were until last year when I had the space to do this.

    It will be mine. Seriously, I have been contemplating this since I saw a house w/ a partially finished basement that had a room that would have been ideal for a TFs room. I will be building a TFs room into my new house sometime in the future.

    Congrats on actually having your TF room and having a great collection.
