    I often find myself wondering who to feature next on these collector interviews, and I have been asked to try and move away from museum-style G1 collections to add more variety. Where possible I have done this, but requests are met at different times and often the choice of who to go with any given month is made for me by circumstance. This month however, and especially after reading his most heartfelt, genuine, wise and engaging interview, it baffles me how Matt “Matty” Dennett has not yet been featured. Writer for G1 Journey and a member of the TFW staff, Matt as a person is every bit as heartfelt, genuine, wise and engaging as his interview. He also has a stunning collection for a so-called newcomer!

    Wonderful article, as always Maz

    I didn't realize Matty and I were the same age, its always cool seeing the collections of other individuals who grew up in G2 and BW, as I occasionally feel a bit out of place at times, with older G1 fans , and younger Unicron trilogy and movie fans, seemingly vastly outnumbering those who grew up in those "transitionary" years between G1 and Beast Wars, when in the US there wasn't much of a media presence outside of the toys, a few comics, and the occasional rerun.

    Thanks for the read Maz! :D

    I don't say this to make fun at all, but when I saw pics of Matt here my first reaction was "Wait, Peeta from Hunger Games is really SitB/Matty???"

    On topic, nice article about a very nice man I've enjoyed interacting with from time to time on Twitter.

    Great interview! Refreshing to see something else. Not just Diaclone or G1. But recent stuff!

    Once again, great interview.
    It's great seeing someone who didn't grow up with G1 embracing it so thoroughly, appreciating its history and significance and not bashing it as "unposeable bricks."

    I see by the variety in his collection that he follows the same philosophy as me, that every iteration of the franchise has something to offer (yes, even Bayverse).

    Just want to say thanks again to Maz for allowing me to contribute to his series of excellent interviews. I'm so humbled by being able to share.

    And thanks for all the kind words everyone. I love this hobby, this community, and I always want to find a way to contribute to it. I've met so many cool people through collecting and I always hope to be introduced to more.

    Hahaha yes, this is awesome.

    An absolute pleasure Matt.

    Love the new avatar btw, RID 2015 is something I'm really excited about. I even went so far as to order the wave 2 Legions from eBay US, that's how impatient it's made me.

    All the best
