Padre's Collection

I've been a life long fan of the transformers, having either watched the cartoons and live action movies to playing with and spending unholy amounts of money to get some figures. But it is an affliction I am proud to have. But it wasn't until 2001 that I became a collector. It was a purely an accident to make it so bad. I was just lurking the internet when I came across the news that a Unicron figure would be released. Anybody that watched any episode of the G1 from the movie on knows that if you ever wanted to see 1 character brought to life in the form of plastic crack, it was Unicron! Little did I know that would polinate the seed that had been lying dormant with in me since 1984. While anxiously awaiting the release of the figure I became more watchful of the toy isle in every store I entered. I began to think, "I can't just have Unicron standing alone, he needs company. So there I bought leader class Armada Optimus to start, and from then on the rest is history!

I've TRANSFORMED my collection from a coffe table display of about 5 figures in 2001, to a few 6 foot tall dust hoarding book shelves, to now several glass display cases! (thanks to a 12/29/09 Ikea sale).

Thank you! I've got 10 of those Detlof's going. In the coming days I'll picture the rest. My stuff is actually split between my house and my parents.
