    Most people home-in on Armada Unicron, that is, after they gawk at me with that "WTF is wrong with you????!" look. Girls laugh, guys think its cool, Mom wishes I'd grow up, neice and nephews want to live in the toy room.

    Also forgot to add Armada Unicron, which I believe was my first major "whoa that's cool" in college and my ML Sentinel, also getting similar reactions.

    For me its one of the following:
    Toybiz Lord of The Rings Sauron (only LoTR fig worth owning and the only character in LoTR that even remotely interests me, stupid movies+books...)
    ML Sentinel
    HC Mecha-Hulk
    Armada Unicron
    GF Galaxy Convoy
    Lego Imperial Shuttle


    and that's it I think...

    Not too many people have seen it in person, but it's usually just the volume. Only I think one of the people that's seen it really know anything about bots, or toys in general so they don't quite know where to look.

    Usually it is by the sheer volume of toys that impresses people the most. My friends have all seen it, but they still like to come in and look at what new stuff I've added and try to find the new toys.

    The first one people were impressed with was my Armada Unicron. I would always hear,"I remember him from the movie, how did you get him?"

    The second one was my 20th Ann. Optimus, the first thing out of their mouths was "holy crap."

    Lately they are impressed by my Cybertron collection (some still can't beleive that I have every release so far, except the CD Hot Shot, Downshift, Dark Crumplezone, and CD Scattorshot, they will be mine soon enough) and a few absolutely love my Series 3 and 7 Ghost Riders, Vengeance, HB Iron Man and my 16" Apocalypse. Although they look at Maestro with that who the hell is that look.

    I used to have a pretty impressive dust collection, but I couldn't afford it anymore once I started buying display cases.

    Don't have a lot of people looking at my collection, but once I took my 20th Anniversary Optimus to a user group table at a computer show. The toy got a lot more attention than the computers, I gotta say.

    Sadly the friends I had in school no longer care to hang out; I think the only reason so many came to my 18TH b-day bash was it was an excuse to get drunk and eat BBQ.

    No body ever get's impressed with any of my stuff; although my mom is constantly haranging me for buying new toys no matter what, she thinks I should stop already. My mindset is; after Cybertron and this neo-G1 line maybe I will stop, but then again that's what I said during Armada and Energon about their lines.

    If I was a betting me though; I'd hope eventually some people will look at my collection and be impressed with my Cobra army, but that's wishful thinking on my part, because first of all I need to finish troop building it. :lol

    I have a combination of things displayed in my office that get lots of attention. My lightsaber replicas get the most in general. TF wise I would probably say Victory Saber when I have him displayed.
