Really nice collection bud.
Thanks man. I honestly have no idea where I put all of it to be honest...it's like Thunderdome in there...two bots enter, but no bot leaves.
Great display and nice collection. How do you keep your TFs dust-free? or how often do you dust them?
Once a year, maybe? I honestly very rarely dust. A combination of changing air filters and regular vacuuming the room seems to do the trick.

Is that all of it (not that what you have isn't vast)? Wasn't sure if you had any stored away for space reasons. I was curious to compare it to my collection.
Thanks man! It's flattering that the collection was enough to bring you out to post.
That is nearly all of it, yes. There might be one or two 18-gallon containers of random figures in the closet with various things I'm selling or such, but what you see on display is what I intend to keep in the long term.
It was about two years ago when my wife and I got robbed. They stole nearly everything, but for whatever reason, left the Transformers. Since that happened, I really got myself towards focusing on a collection goal. It worked out like this:
-Keep and continue G1
-Collect all of Armada, Energon, and Cybertron
-On the backs of AEC, add in Classics to make a Neo-G1
-RiD, Movie, and Masterpiece/Alternators can stay too
-everything else had to go
-goodbye Beast Wars, Beast Machines, Titanium, RobotMasters, and any odds and ends.
The strangest thing and perhaps the most perverse...is walking into a dedicated toy room and saying to myself, 'Nah, it's really not all that much.' It's hard to shake that feeling sometimes though, but letting other people see it and share in it helps to ground the crazy-talk. Especially when they tend to walk in and say, "OH, my GOD."
and I'm reminded that normal people don't live like this.
