    That is all kinds of cool.
    I haven't met Cullen, Ross, or Angel yet, but I hope to someday. They all seem like great people who are humbled by the fan adoration. Hal and Paul Eiding really went out of their way to interact with everyone.

    Love this thread. Been cleaning my basement and in a box today I found motor master and all 3 omnibots. I don't even remember where I got them from. Everything else in the box was junk. Only bad thing is the silver omnibots is missing his head

    Nope, never been much of a comic book reader. Didn't have the patience to sit still and just read! But I'm going to see what all the hype is about with the comics eventually...can't be a night owl forever!! LOL

    Geez man!! I couldn't find a mint Prowl to save my life....now I know why...you have them all!!! JK. I hope to do exactly the same with Jazz someday! Those look really good!:thumb 

    Agreed, These voice actors aren't going to be around much longer and there appearances fewer and far between, those are really sharp and fine examples of signed pieces!

    Well I'm trying to add... a few. I haven't really got any bots per se in the last little while as it seems I'm on the hunt for the TF Great White whales or the Polkaroo these days....but I did manage to snag a set of items that I've wanted for a while.

    I present the complete set of G1 Decoys in their full glory!!!

    [​IMG]

    Each decoy in the set is individually numbered by their associated number as issued in the G1 Japanese toyline....as well as having a set specific launcher. The really cool part is in set #3 which features the rarest of the Decoys including the Dinobots and a set of G1 playing cards with all of the characters G1 box art on them! :D

    Wow I haven't seen those in years. They are a bit rare and very cool.

    Slowly but surely I'm getting around to taking pics of my collection, which I've pared down dramatically to nothing but G1, Masterpiece, and CHUG/3rd party. I need to create a new collection thread.

    G1 is still my favorite, and that will never change. I haven't posted in here for a while, but still lurk around in this thread drooling at all the stuff I see. It's toy porn, basically.

    Here's one of my favorite and more recent acquisitions. As mint as can be without being sealed. The bag of accessories is sealed, though. Unused sticker sheet. One of my favorite pieces.

    very nice, i love roadbuster, but hate that he has the flaw on his shoulders.

    Here's mine, not as mint as yours, but he is boxed and complete.

    I'd love to mess around with Roadbuster, apply the stickers and everything but I could never do it. I just need a bubble insert and I'm happy with it the way it is. It certainly took me long enough to track one down in its condition for the price I wanted to pay.

    Here's some more: Weirdwolf and Mindwipe MIB. Weirdwolf is still sealed to the bubble. They're both dead mint and unused with unapplied stickers.

    I'd love to be able to own an AFA collection one day, but have never been willing to spend the money. I'm just going to have to settle with what I have, which is pretty damned good, IMO. More coming later.

    Roadbuster looks good brricy, is it exclusive to the US? Cant recall ever seeing a Japanese one.

    Some help please guys, All my MIB G1s need to go into storage for around 6 months pending a move to a new house. Gonna put them into plastic storage tubs in a dark store room. Do the boxes need like air circulation or anything?
