    His shelf must look pathetic. Seekers and lambos as far as the fooking eye can see.

    I was going to lay into you for making a gratuitous thread but... damn if that wasn't entertaining.

    devastating effect on my wallet though. I think ive spent over $10k on TFs since I joined this site about 10 years ago.

    It's a bit unfair to compare to only TakaraTomy's releases when you're mixing in releases from multiple other companies.

    On top of that, there are at least a few figures which have official versions, so the comparison is also unfair.

    Don't get me wrong, I like third-party figures and I have my problems with TakaraTomy too (and am worried about the current state of the Masterpiece line, even), but it seems like a bit of an unfair review. Not to mention that a lot of the characters which have official figures don't have unofficial alternatives.

    I only have a few "Official" MPs... lts seem Grimlock, Hot Rodimus (that I've never even opened), Megatron (never opened that either), Ultra Magnus (the white one - found him at a car boot sale of all places), I never bought an Optimus I have a Hasbro Mp-01 but again (never opened it). Green scream I put back in the box with s sense of disgust over his bad QC. I've got a ARGOS cheapy Skywarp still & an MP Star Saber - who to be honest isn't especially Masterpiece like due to being a bit plasticy. I bought an Ironhide a few weeks back.
    I have a Road Rage, My Prowl and Sideswipe are KOs. I do have the cassette twin packs though no idea if they are legit or not thoiugh.
    I also bought some year of the Goat Cassettes off Lena too.

    That's it ; No Offical Bluestreak, Ratchet, Tigertrack, Black Rodimus, Optimus of any kind, No Bumblebee, no Tracks, no Wheeljack. Only the Two legit "seekers", no Inferno or Grapple.

    Everything else i have that counts as some sort of MP like is 3rd party but I do tend to like 3rd party classics like stuff so MP in general isn't what I'm thinking of first usually anyway. I'm not one of those people trying to recreate the cartoon.

    Not sure what you mean. As I said in the OP I was counting official molds vs 3P molds in my collection. There was no specific point I was trying to make here, not condemning official or anything, simply a visual representation of a world without 3P and how drastically that would alter my collection.

    Point taken, but he did say "my collection" in the title.

    What a good idea for a thread. I was actually thinking about this recently.

    That's fair. Some other people in the thread didn't see it that way, though. I guess those comments were more what I was aiming mine at, and wasn't entirely sure if your point was that simple or if those others were echoing your sentiments. Sorry.

    Actually, he said "my my collection". ;)

    Yikes. My CHUG collection used to be like this, until CW and TR happened and suddenly so much of my 3rd party stuff was pushed off the shelf.

    Nice shots!

    My Autobots would probably fair okay, about half are official figures. But my Decepticons? They'd be decimated. Only officials are Starscream (who will be getting the boot once Meteor gets released) and Soundwave and minions.

    Nah over it. I’ve got a few bootlegs. That minibot pic is pretty bad. Not a single looker amongst the bunch. Phoenix and Terminus Giganticus look good.

    I will never understand why people who hate third party stuff read and post in the third party forum.
