I can see an end to my masterpiece collection... it feels liberating.

    Nice. Did you get those before BB7 announced theirs, and are you going to add Nova Storm, Ion Storm and Nacelle at some point?

    Yeah had 'em years. Hotlink is from Pumpkingonzo and the others I did. We also collaborated and did Nacelle a few years back:

    Did a limited commission run.

    I'm not bothered about Nova and Ion though, I'm strictly on screen g1 cartoon only.

    A blessing of a talent you have there, bro. Wish I could be just as creative as you and try to be creative. But the figures are such a high price, I would hate to dismantle them.

    Building it is the toughest part. Want to be a better handyman myself. This is one good reason why.

    I am bummed as well since I missed out on the limited run. Nacelle is the only seeker that I am missing and that is all systems go.

    Yeah I'm almost done too- its been fun but I almost have every character that really matters to me.

    I doubt any 3Ps will take a chance on Doubledealer, so the end is in sight.

    All I'm needing is the bugs, Blitzwing, WJ Megs, Springer, to finish off NBK Devastator and then I dont think I'm in a rush to buy anything else.

    MP combiners, more MP Headmasters and Targetmasters, 86 movie MP, maybe MP Powermasters. Then I'll be done. That's still a lot of figures, so it won't be any time soon. And, of course official G1 Masterpieces.

    Mine is also at an end. I've put my Fans Toys bugs for sale as well as the Maketoys Visualizers. Thinking of ditching the seekers next.

    I guess that's not what you meant.:p

    First my goal was a "top 10" characters.
    Then my goal was Ark and Nemesis Crews.
    Now my goal included other Warbotron-scale combiners.
    I imagine the '86 movie core characters will be my next goal.

    Of course, cool dudes like FansHobby's Ginrai and G2 Prime just throw all my best-laid plans into disarray. :p

    I have really only been after the first season characters, with some exceptions like Rodimus Prime and Ultra Magnus. However, now that I have completed Fanstoys' Dinobots, I find myself satisfied with where I'm at.

    I still need to get some version of Trailbreaker because that was my first ever Transformer as a kid, but I think that's where I'll draw the line, despite missing characters like Hound, Cliffjumper, Mirage and the mini bots.

    I reserve the right to change my mind though!

    I hope we are entering the age of combiners in 3p MP and it forces TT MP combiners. Then my collection can rest once I have metroplex and Trypticon in scale. My son will have to give up his room for them, but he won't mind as long as he gets to play with them.

    I'm stopping at the 86 movie and even then, there are just a some I don't care that much about (MP-wise) to get full blown versions off. Like the combiners...I'm good with UW versions for my shelves. I like to have something like them to look at but just not enough to want to buy each team in MP.

    I'm really close and it is quite refreshing to not have a ton on my pre-order just lurking to come out.

    Feels weird that there's only 3 figures left to collect then to feel I've gradually lost interest in the site. Nothing against this forum. Just makes me realize, damn I've got all I've wanted to complete my collection and it's almost going to come to an end. FT Kup, FT Omega, and FT Mindwipe and I've got all I want to mix and match a masterpiece style with a Generations sprinkled collection to keep all the sizes as close as possible. Some are not even close to scale and I'm ok with that.

    I come here out of habit. In the almost 11 years I've been on this site, I never really started posting until late last year.
