    Below is a link to my collection pics.

    Sadly most of them are packed away. At the moment I've only got the 10th Anniversary figures and the Hard Hero Rhinox Statue on display.

    You'll notice a complete lack of Fox Kids Repaints. I don't think they're necessary and avoided getting them :p 

    Enjoy.

    ... forgot how much I liked that Anniversary Optimus. So much better than the original one, heh.

    The new head scupt is great. If only they'd gone that little bit extra and recast his blue accessories in black, grey or red.

    Still, the face & chest are better, and that alone makes him look more like Optimus Primal than an ape Optimus Prime.

    For sure. They just need to have one more go at retooling the mould and he'll be perfect. Get some better launchers in both his wrists (do away with the skull-mace all together) and build some jets into his back. Mmmmm.....

    I'm not a huge BW fan, but I can certainly appreciate this collection :thumb

    Do it, they're totally worth it. Why did you give up the first time?

    I didn't really give up. My interest in lines just changes constantly... One month I want G1 figures, the next I want Animated, etc. It's impossible for me to focus on just one line. Then there's the whole being broke thing... xD

    Yeah, I feel sorry for all you normal fans that buy stuff from all the lines.

    Yeah, especially when they've gotta complete certain sets & lines in order to avoid going crazy. Those are the collectors that I really tend to feel for heh.

    There is still scope for the collection to grow. I've got to get a TM2 Tripredacus Agent. And if Hasbro/Takara release more Universe figures with a BW theme, like Cheetor and Dinobot, then I'll have to get them too!

    It never ends.

    Wow, this is a blast from the past! I'd actually forgotten I had a photobucket account :p 

    The collection link at the top works again now that the album is public once again.

    Sadly, nothing has changed since 2011 in regards to that portion of the collection. It's still all packed away. I did track down a TM2 Tripredacus Agent at some point, so that's good.

    The collection on display at present consists of a Detolf with the BW MPs, the three Generations figures and a random TM2 Blackarachnia and TM Rattrap. I thought I had a pic around here somewhere, but can't find it at present.

    But one day the collection will be back to it's full majesty, plus some new ones!
