A shelf-ish collection…

My wife bought me MP-03 on Christmas 2006. For some reason I didn't even really think about collecting until September 2010 when I ordered an MP-08 and MP-04s. Since then, I've slowly built up a collection that I'm super happy with. Some of it's purchased online, some from members here and at tfw, some from retail and a few from my parents basement.

Updated shot of part of my collection (04/13/14)

Black Primes





Combiners



Masterpiece



Mastermind/Mech Ideas



FansProject



Miscellaneous



Anyway, thanks for looking. I really couldn't have done it without the help I've received from members here - either directly or reading through archives. Thanks!

edit:

and lego








-------------------------------------------------------------------

old collection…




I mostly collect 3rd Party, Masterpiece and black versions of Optimus Prime now…

Here's FansProject and Maketoys shelf…




Here's the MP's and alternators that i have. really happy with this as they're some of my absolute favourite.



and now black primes…





I limit myself to 4 shelves, one for Autobots and the other for Decepticons, the third for MP's and alternators and now one for Black Primes.

I'm almost content with the Autobot one - can't really think of too much more I want/need that's currently out (or within my budget!) other than what's on the way/unreleased.

Here's a link - damn you sensible ikea! depending on what comes out over the next couple years i may get a third one of these. they're so easy to set up and i think they're sharp.

ya, it's an NES with my first TF on it and an Atari 2600. Both still work which is kinda cool.

Became a huge fan of puns when my father introduced me to the Piers Anthony's series 'Xanth'. Make jokes all the time at work. People just look at me like I'm crazy. Just makes it all that more fun. heh

Nice on the 2600. Still have mine as well. Snagged some old games from the family recently, and got the count up to 150. Not sure how well they work, or how many actually work. Thought about setting up all of my consoles (have every console I've ever owned), but after starting collecting transformers, there's just NO room for anything else.

Keep my first NES in my bedroom. Works to this very day. Play Super Mario ever once in awhile, but mostly play Tecmo Super Bowl and Nambungo's Ambition (think that's spelled right). Both those games are still fun. Everything still works like a champ. Crazy considering I've ruined several XBox 360 controllers, and my controllers from 25 years ago work without missing a beat.

On the collection note, it looks like you tried to get characters that matched their size where possible (maybe not, but looks that way to me). Which rev of Kup is that in the middle there? Was thinking he should be shorter than hound/etc from the G1 cartoons.
