Preface: Been meaning to do this for seven months--that's when I took the pictures! But life has been an ever-stressful whirlwind and I never got to sitting down and making it happen. In the time that has passed since I took the pictures, the collection has grown in size, and what's missing, whether by me forgetting in the first place that I had it or being actually new, is this: nearly the entire Studio Series line, Big Powered, Grand Maximus, Ectotron, almost all of Siege, assorted BotBots, a tiny bit of Cyberverse, all of the more recent G1 reissues, every Dreamwave comic (except for the few Energon issues), assorted G1 single issues, the Marvel G2 run, the Transformers Legends anthology book, the Irvine Aligned continuity novels, and the Hasbro Heroes Sourcebook. I think. There might be a movie novelization in there. I'll do this again, and see a change of location with probably more room and a new arrangement in the next year. What I will present in the posts that follow is the collection when it looked its prettiest. I simply haven't the space right now to incorporate anything new in a way that suits what I was going for. I typed the above slightly before the time of posting this, but will leave you with what I wrote months ago before I start making posts with pictures: So I’ve decided to include everything Transformers that I have. Mostly this is toys, but there’s DVDs, books, comics, and merchandise. My ground rules for my toy collection are to generally keep figures in the same line together, aside from where I have the odd one that fits in another line in some way or another; generally by aesthetics. I try to avoid having the same character on the same shelf, aside from faction leaders. So on my CHUG shelves, which is the bulk of my collection, you probably won’t catch duplicate characters on the same shelf aside from Optimus, Megatron, Hot Rod, and Galvatron. I have a CHUG shelf dedicated to duplicate versions of the same characters who aren’t faction leaders. I do make an exception to my very general rule for combiner characters that had a pre-CW incarnation or aren’t otherwise on the same shelf. My interest with CHUG is to build a cast. My hopes for the line are getting updates of every G1, G2, and JG1 character there is, and I’ll be happy to continue through the Beast era, the Unicron triology, and whatever else so long as it continues to create a massive cast. We have an Armada Red Alert? Cool. I rationalize him as a dude from a different colony world who has the same name. I try to create some dynamics and energy on my shelves, which they’re all the better for, but it will and has created a space problem. I don’t want a lineup, I want a scene. Come on in.
