    Amazing collection. You did an epic job making your collection feel alive. Because of your poses and lighting effects those transformers don't look like static figures, they instead look like objects that are alive.

    Hard to tell, but some of your figures look like they are just holding and standing by light up effects. Others look like you placed lights on the inside of the figure itself. Any tips on getting started with lighting up transformers figures?

    I just have to say this collection rocks so much. It is very clear how much thought and time and passion you've put into the display. I don't have the courage to break open so many of my figures to add LED lighting but kudos to you for having done so - the results are very impressive. I'm working on my display which uses LED lighting to light up the figures and the environments, but I'm too chicken to put it INSIDE the figures... :)

    Thank you! Yes, I have installed LEDs, mods and other electronics in nearly every figure in the collection (minus the mini-cassettes). They are all still 100% transformable as well!

    Thank you! As you said, the greatest obstacle is fear. For me, I started with a few KOs and cheaper figures, installing headlights and easier mods before I had any confidence to work with the more expensive figures. I found the greatest reward for me was to see myself improving in technique and ability over a relatively short period of time.
