Old Artfire2000's Detailed Collection Pics

Postby fracus » Sun Feb 21, 2010 2:28 am

Hey all, for those of you who are considered old timers to Transformers Collecting (back in the day of Fred's Workshop and when Curt didn't run his shop through TF Source), you might remember a collector that went by Fracus and had a website at www.artfire2000.com. I've been out of collecting for many years now, but thought I'd list those old photos from my collection. I focused on rare Japanese TFs and foreign variants, and have them all listed on my photo site: http://chuckliu.smugmug.com/Hobbies/Transformers

Some obscure notables include a French G1 Yellow Devastator (with carded figs as well), Italian Abominus Giftset, Japanese White Headmaster Heads, Mexican variants, etc etc.

I don't have any more of them, so don't ask to buy any, but I still get a kick looking through the pictures. Hope ya'll enjoy :)

Fracus,

It's great to see you (as it were) after all these years. I used to frequent your site and email you in the late 90's. Your collection was amazing, the only place online I could see an actual Artfire, Stepper, Noizu, etc etc. I remember reading the post how you were selling it all, and being a HS student then did not have a shot in heck to get any. Still, these pictures bring back so much.

It is truly great to see them and hear you're still kicking around. I wish you the best as always, and peace!

Those were the good ol' days eh? I was in highschool then as well, which most people didn't know haha. I still have a soft spot for TFs, and frequently fight the urge to splurge and buy some of the cool newer stuff. I suppose it's for the better... I'd be far more broke if I had tried to keep up after all these years.
