Hey all, just moved so I had the joy of packing 26 boxes, then opening and arranging everything all over again! Fun times.
Brief history on my collection:
I just hit 810 figures in early August. I think that's a lot...my wife thinks that's a lot...people who see this think it's a lot... But compared to guys on this site I think it might not be so big lol. I sometimes wonder what might be considered "a lot" by Seibertron.com standards.
Recent acquisitions not pictured: Exgraver, Both SDCC 2011 Primes, more KO WST Ultra Magnus'
Lately I have been into gathering the original 80's comics and Powermasters/Headmasters
I like to think of myself as a "Mold Completion-ist", meaning that I like to have at least the original issue(or just one of) of a figure and I don't much care for repaints. There are exceptions such as Generations Rodimus(I have Henkei, E-Hobby, and TF Club).
Personally I am in love with the movie lines! I am really into the whole engineering aspect of these figures and there's nothing more complex than the recent movie stuff. A fantastic vehicle mode, and screen-accurate-ish robot mode and a great transformation are what do it for me.
These pics were taken from waaaaaaay back lol. Those are 6-foot bookcases there.
Let's see what we have here, The table has all the cool stuff on it. All the major bases, my WST collection (including lot's of KO primes, Dinobots, and ultra magnus'). Also are the specialty and 3rd party figures.
First bookcase has my G-1/2 figures, Autobots on the top shelf, Decepticons on the 2nd and every combiner team on the third. Next is every Micromaster playset/base then partially hidden by a stupid chair are the Combiner-Primes and their guys, RID, Armada, Energon, and Powermaster Ginrai. Poking out is Optimash Prime.
Middle bookcase has dinos on the top shelf, the Animated set, every PCC set w/Beast wars Neo stuff. Then it's the entire Titanium line and lastly a mix of combiners, RID, universe, and beast wars.
Last bookcase is mostly movie 1 and 2 stuff along with my few pretenders/powermasters/headmasters (just started working on those). The small bookcase is mostly RID/energon/Armada junk waiting on the next big bookcase to replace it. The empty shelf is just waiting eagerly for the new Transformers Prime figures....which look stupidly awesome.
The first bookcase is nothing but DOTM stuff, got it all so far (Kre-o OP is under construction). Next is the Universe/generations lines. I was lucky enough to snag the hard-to-get stuff like windcharger, lugnut, and warpath. Then Masterpiece w/ some robotech masterpiece stuff, the entire Alternators (mold-wise) set, and then my Beast wars/machines.
