    20th Anniversary Prime. I've actually had several visitors stop and exclaim, "Oh my god, it's Optimus Prime!!!"

    It's an older picture, but this is what draws attention from people when they enter my living room. :D

    Since majority of my TFs are under the bed and inside the closet my friends rarely get to see them. However when I had G1 Devastator on display a friend of mine actually remembers it from his childhood and even got most of its name right. I am thinking about clearing a lot of space so I can take big ones like Trypticon and Scorponok out and most of the gestalts as well. I am sure they will creat quite an impression.

    We don't have many TFs out for display (and I don't have big impressive figures) but people seem to like Team Shinkansen (JRX) turn into robots. If they are patient enough to wait they will be even more impressed (or politely pretend to) to see them combine.

    What are friends? :( 

    Nah. I have a couple. They just never come over. Plus most of my TFs are boxed up right now in anticipation of moving. I just need to stop buying them while I wait to hear about a job where I'm moving. My stack of boxes keeps getting bigger and bigger! And I keep losing figures! I lost 2 G1 Ultra Magnuses, Blitzwing, Octane, Kup, and one of the Monstructor figures that were all awaiting parts for completion! And I know they haven't left my house. But the sad thing is the BW Scorponok that was with them in my dresser is still in place. WTF???


    EDIT: Well, I bought a G1 Trypticon and as he had a busted (or so I thought) leg, I decided to try and see if I could fix him during downtime at work. You would not believe how many "Oh that's so cool"s I got from people walking by. Guess Dinosaurs are universal :D
