    Another view from my desk. I arranged my extra copies on the bookshelves. They're for play with my son, but I also wanted doubles of the core cast, so I'll have to pick up a few extra as I can (I've got two copies of Wheeljack+ and MP-44 ordered, I'll pick up an extra Ratchet if TT reissues him, and two Starscreams if there's ever a v3). I also put in a new fan that I thought looked like a cool match for TFs and I plan on putting a copy of the '86 poster on the left wall.

    MP-44 and Wheeljack+ will be joining this crew this year...

    Soundblaster and AKOM Hot Rod are two beautiful repaints!

    These two are great, but with the + versions in my collection I think I'm going to sell them.

    Forgive me for going off topic here, but I hope it's ok to share a shot of my 3A Optimus.

    A little more off-topic, but any toy or dino fan should really pick up some Beasts of the Mesozoic figures! Forget Jurassic Park - these are the most accurate articulated dino figures out there!

    Thanks, man! @Sam is the one who I first saw using them and I fell in love instantly. Had to have them. Sam took it a step further, though, customizer that he is, and added some Cybertronic detailing to his shelves and it looked amazing. You still have those, Sam?

    Thanks, brother! I just need to get some lights to put on either side of the shelves to really make the figures pop.

    Is that 3A Optimus articulated or a statue?

    Highly articulated. It's really cool, but it honestly doesn't interest or impress me half as much as an MP. I'd sell it and put it towards MP-44 if it wasn't a gift.

    He's the most costly MP to date, coming in around $305 shipped to the US when ordered from Amazon Japan.
    No KO announced yet but I'm sure it won't take them too long to copy the mold after it's released.

    The seeker mold is outdated and crappy, but damn if you didn’t literally breathe new life into it. Wow! Perhaps I’ve been too critical of the seekers as of late.

    Also I love how you pose them on your shelves. I still need to transform a lot of my figures and set them up in my new display.

    Have you ever considered displaying them without guns? I notice most people display their bots with guns out, but I’ve found a display without guns really looks better in my eyes. Because I don’t remember Ratchet ever holding a gun except when he died. And that was a pretty shit day for us all weren’t it? Haha

    Give it a shot if you are looking for something new :)

    Love how Hot Rod is holding Daniel. Totally stealing that when Hoodlum arrives.

    We need a mini hoverboard accessory.
