Great photos @soundwave144 ! I love how you’ve captured so much of our childhoods on different shelves and with different franchises.
hilarous putting the 3D glasses on random figures too.
great find with terrorcon. He cleaned up nicely. That’s what I’d have to do if I found one all smoky.
scare glo is clearly the bones of Harry Potter. Check that scar on his forehead.
Thanks mang!! This room is SOO much more than my last go around!!
Im not done placing the 3d glasses on bots YET...
Yeah, hunn-grrr cleaned up real nice!
Harry Potter's bones...
No WAY...he is Skeletors ghost from the future that had too much tequila one night and cracked his head on the kitchen counter...
Very nice collection, love what you've done to the room.
Thank you so much! Me too!!
Received my OS KO decepticon headmasters finally! Ill take pics of them on the shelf later today.
Gotta buy some paint and get skullcrunchers head done right.
Here we are!
Also; a friend of mine stopped by from hell.
He said i can call him Al.
He says HI!!
Since ive been passing on MOST of the newest trilogy ive been having times of "buying transformers 'withdrawal'", ive been filling the void with other 80s goodness.
I went to a local convention this weekend and found these little fellers for only 2 bucks each!
Starscream needs Viagra...
Ive seen them on here but never in person and i like to paint so why not??
Back to the "withdrawals" ; today was no exception, i was looking around at target and i saw him.
One of the last motu figures i had from my childhood. I TOLD myself that i had bought all the motu stuff that i NEEDED and that the shelf was perfectly symmetrical with good/bad guys and i didnt NEED any more cuz i didnt have room...
But he IS a ROBOT!!
And apparently trying to get a job as a school crossing guard:
ANNND i found room for him on the shelf.
NOW its starting to look a little full.
There is now room for only ONE more bad guy.
and THIS isnt in the bot-cave but i bought it, sanded and polished it then painted it and its in our foyer; but its COOL!!!
(Not sure how those thumbnails got in the above post...)
I can STOP buying MOTU figures because i found him!
My favorite character from the toyline and childhood.
Tri-klops!!! (cuz there's THREE of em?!?!?)
NOW that my bad guy side is even with my good guy side
I can hang it up for this shelf and move onto filling up ANOTHER one!!!!!
If you get the Punisher, he can fit right in the middle as well, and still be "undecided".
The punisher was one of my childhood faves cuz he had a comic book with no superpowers and no inheritance from his parents; but i have other places in the room to put random childhood memories!
...not a bad idea at all...
Now to find a cool punisher figure...
Had a few new additions to the family but life has been hectic so that comes before pics...
Earthrise huffer: i already have a chug huffer that is in the correct scale according to me but huffer is the first minibot i got as a kid.
FINALLY got around to painting my OSKO skullcruncher's head to the right colors...
Also got around to customizing my hasbro skullcruncher into croctimus prime which will be going up for sale once i make his bio card. link will be posted in correct forum when available.
Also gave the undertaker a more fitting custom weapon!
Thats all for today, more hijinks to come!
Newage h21 karate kid Larusso SG soundwave and his minions arrived recently and i like soundwave alot more than the cassettes but they ARE fun and pretty expressive for their size! The extra hands really help sell the shots too!
Also on an impulse i bought a white costumed magneto from the marvel selects line. Ive always liked magneto as a character but this outfit is pretty boss!
Been wanting to get THIS guy for a minute...
And due to some winnings from a slot machine last weekend it happened sooner than expected!
Im fine that it turns into shockwave, im a shockwave fan anyways but i wish his alt mode was bigger!!
Here the recent purchases in their respective places!
Found a geewun hardhead yesterday in a local comic shop. Hes missing everything so i got a great deal on him.
And here he is with a shrunken head!
Ready to paint soundwave turned into shattered glass sw and is happy in his new home!
Things have been slow recently being that im not all in on replacing characters that i already have so posting new additions have been fewer and further between.
I made another junkion to join my movie shelf and his name is Detrius.
He looks at home with his brethren...
I also bought 2 more sweeps; betcha cant guess which ones are the new ones!
...which makes for an even NICER movie decepticon display...
I also picked up a second Rodimus Unicronus from a local freind to add to the display cuz i love rodimus and i cant resist a good black repaint...
The local annual convention was this weekend put on by a friend of mine; @Autobot City Comics 2008 , SEVERAL additions were bought and 98% of them were NOT transformers or even robots...
I have always been and will always be a transformers fan first and foremost; but since prices are going up expediently and i dont wanna wait til im 70 for "X" company to FINALLY finish off the "so and so" team In MP form... I have sold all of my current ones like the "master" bots (except mindwipe-my wife likes him...) to make room for the remaining S2 minibots that havent been made.
Which MEANS, im MUCH closer to completing my transformers collection!!
(Obviously i have to complete my g1 collection and c.h.u.g. but those are both within easy reach)
WHICH means, i have a little more free space.
All the better to display even MOAR characters and properties from my childhood!!!
So back to the original sentence. I want to take better pics of the "convention haul" before posting in a more prevalent thread but heres a start.
Some new double trouble with more to come when better pics are taken
I know YOU'RE watching...
I gots more new ammo for our game, find that figure!
More to show from the convention haul later!!
