My collection in all it's G1 glory(update 10/24)

Postby 3.8TransAM » Sat Jul 17, 2010 2:58 pm

:BOT: :CON:

Will inhabit this post shortly, at least parts of it.

Finally got some of it to my mew house and something to display it in with my own complete room to house them in along with comic books and die cast junk :-)

Might even throw some starter pics up, maybe help a few people figure out how to display their stuff or u can laugh at the mess I have going if u wish lol

Finally got some pics. The lady took some(insert thank u here so I dont have to hear about it) while I was out weed whacking and lawn mowing.

So for the first time anywhere on the net and the first time where I have an actual display set up of any sort officially.

Cool stuff! I'm liking the G1-centricness of it. You should post more pics whenever you finish setting up those shelves. Looks like it will be awesome.

Thanks

Its the first time I ever had some place I could get the majority of them out and on display.

Have some more organizing to do obviously, by the pics lol

Money just went back to being tight now and I'm on the job market again....................

As for the G1-centricness, I have next to nothing from any other lines.

Generations/Universe lines had some cool stuff and I have the ROTF Bludgeon. I can do good homages from other lines, but no Animated, Universe Trilogy, etc... just don't care for it

Got almost all TransFormers I own at my house now.

Still missing 1 box, can;t find it currently but basement at folks is torn apart due to the A/C went out so its a matter of time. Just be down on all cassetes, most Action Master stuff I have and some accessories. Really want to find it bad now lol

Got my boxed Skylynx, Metroplex, Op, Galvatron and Powermaster Op here along with Blaster's original box as well.

One entire printer paper box(the large kind) packed to the top with G1 TransFormers.

Had all the accessories for them in a medium size Tupperware container and that's here now too

There will be more as I get some time to pull them out and put them up.

Still more to come :BOT: :CON: More individual shelve/cube pics and a few other things I've found and in reality the whole room is still a mess because I haven't had much time to finish any of it.

Everything u see open and displayed on the shelves are thus far original equipment, no reissues(yet) or knock offs(never) shown.

That's a really cool mix of stuff. The master lines setup throughout is a nice touch. And actually, those statues, I like 'em. I'm surprised that I do, but I like 'em... especially that shockwave. I need to get me one of those.

Palisades statues have been the only Transformers ones I have liked.

I only have what u see there minus a 12 inch Megatron awaiting repairs.

If u look around u can still find most of them for decent prices, some of them did get a little expensive now.

Eventually I will have everything I want out and displayed, so I will have complete pics without extra odds and ends displayed with them

In your collection is that Shockwave in the second pic? I have never seen one of them before and never knew they existed.

My current Gem in my collection is my UKG graded AM THundercracker MISB. Sadly i had to sell some of my collection to pay for my trip to Egypt and also as i am unemployed again.

I lost my collection room :-(

I swapped my room with my 1yr old son's. I lost actual room space, but doubled closet space.

It really really sucks trying to move an entire collection even from one room to another.

So I did get to clean up a lot of crap, so after I get the crib moved, I can get to work getting it all set up and situated all over again..........................

It's kind of depressing, so I'm hoping that I can even make it a better set up than the one I had prior.

I will get more pics up as soon as I get it all together.

Half of it is now piled in my closet and the rest is on one side of the room.

Repainting since it was a horrid lite brown(she picked it for his room not me)

So hopefully can finish that up t'row and get things put back into place and actually get to organizing it all over again.

Switching rooms sucks, so be forewarned if it happens to you. I gained about double the closet space but lost about 20% room size.

It always seems like to much crap when u have to move it all.

I genuinely sympathise with you, the vast majority of my collection is still in storage at my parents as I've got absolutely no room to display them at mine.

Nice collection by the way, my collection is pretty much all G1 reissues, with a few exceptions, but nowhere near as impressive as yours.

Thanks man I appreciate it, got 3 walls completely done, took 3 friggin coats lol

Did like 1/4 of the wall on each side if the main dsiplay case and now have to clean and move everything off of it and then move the display case to paint the wall behind it t'row morning. So at least 2 more heavy coats or more likely 3 coats on it too.

I will try and get an im progress pic up here t'row

Got a project in progress picture with my little monster helping me out :lol:

Image

U can still see the brownish nasty color the room was before I painted it a very light tan/off white(had it laying around) behind the display case. Took literally 3 complete coats on all walls to cover it up so instead of a day or two, I wasted 3 days on just the paint itself.

I have it completely painted and some stuff hung now, just not sure how to set it all back up since I'm starting over.
