    Updated July 13th, 2019.

    My Transformers collection is centered on completing the 1984-1988 toyline cast in updated form. I don't care much for the mostly Micromaster/Prenteder focus in the following two years, and there are some 1984-1988 characters I'll be skipping as well. In general, I would say I'm over halfway done.

    My Marvel Legends collection is really just any and all figures that interest me-- typically because I have an attachment to the character. There are a few I only have because I needed the BAF piece, though.

    New pictures below:
    0713191608a.jpg
    1984 Autobots, plus Drift and Crosscut
    0713191608b.jpg
    1985 Autobots
    0713191609a.jpg
    1986 Autobots
    0713191609b.jpg
    1987-1988 Autobots, plus Nautica, Windblade, and Solus(?) (and the diecast Titan Masters).
    0713191606.jpg
    1984-1985 Decepticons
    0713191605a.jpg
    1986 Decepticons
    0713191603b.jpg
    1987-1988 Decepticons, plus Blackjack, Krok, and some Pretenders. Also Trypticon won't fit on his proper shelf.
    0713191608.jpg
    Onscreen Movie characters
    0713191607a.jpg
    G2, plus Hound who I figure is intense enough sculpt-wise to fit in since he's been replaced by the Universe one.
    0713191606d.jpg
    Botcon/TFCC figures
    0713191610.jpg
    Offscreen Movie figures and Hardhead

    Oh they're just the Hasbro. The things I'm most happy about are Tidal Wave, and I ordered a Fancycell Astrotrain today.

    Avalanche, what Thundercracker is that?

    I'm talking about the one on the shelf with Soundwave and next to Astro Train.

    I expected a shelf dedicated solely to figures/characters you've used as your TFW2005 avatars before, have to say I'm slightly disappointed

    Wow, almost a year since I've touched this thread. While I've made some acquisitions, I'm in the process of slimming down my collection significantly. Big changes of note:
    1007202041.jpg
    Heavily truncated 1986 Autobot shelf
    1007202041a.jpg
    More complete 84-85 Con shelf
    1007202041b.jpg
    And for me what is the real crown jewel of my collection, my growing offscreen movie team.

    Rearranged my shelves so I could empty one out to make room for my offscreen movie guys. The result is more tightly-packed but I think there's more visual interest this way.

    How is T30 Skids? I'm just curious as I'm thinking about getting him for a G1 stand-in.
