    Hey all!

    The Transformers Project

    This project is still in its infancy, but I'm having a lot of fun so far. I'm trying to collect an entire G1 Transformers set. I'm documenting the process online in a blog and taking nifty pics and writing little stories here and there. You can also vote to influence which ones I get next. This weeks voting is over in about 4 hours, so get in there and vote!

    Later!

    Bill

    good luck with your quest and i have a question out of curiosity are you allow the encore and other reissues to count for this or must it be Genuine G1 only?

    Genuine G1 only. I know, I'm insane. I could get the reissues and save money, but I want to be able to say when this is all done, that it's ALL original.

    Will do! If I had more money, I'd buy more of them faster, but as it is, I can only afford about 1 a week if even.

    Does anyone else know any good sites for purchasing Transformers that meet my criteria? I have eBay and TransformersLand as my current sources, but It's nice to have more choices.

    My newest Transformer is up on the site!

    LINK

    No poll for the next one yet though. I already purchased the next one. I'll get one up in a week or so, and have an article asking for suggestions.

    Suggestion Saturday!

    The Transformers Project

    I want there to be more things for readers to do to participate. So, today I dubbed "Suggestion Saturday." Go to the site, and in the comments section, suggest which figure you'ld like me to track down next. It explains more in the post.

    Once this get's going, I want more things for readers to do. I was thinking of having a "Transformers Hunting" day. Everyone looks around teh internets for the best deals on Transformers meeting my criteria and pointing me in the right direction.

    Maybe some sort of reward incentive could be provided for anyone who leads me to a great deal.

    I don't know. Ideas anyone!?

    Also, look for "The Transformers Project" on Facebook!

    This is the last day for suggestions. I've gotten a lot on some other boards, but no one is giving them to me on my blog. Go in and post some suggestions so I can make that pol tomorrow!!! So far as far as the other board is considered, Sixshot is the main contender.
