Orange's 'Modest' Collection.

Postby Orange » Mon Jun 27, 2011 5:25 am

Greetings all, I'm a newcomer to the forums, (and you could say to the world of Transformers). It's a great site by the way.
Growing up in the '90s, I unfortunately missed the classic G1 figure line, however Beast Wars was able to spark my interest none the less. I think I still have Cheetah with his tail gun lying around somewhere.

The live action movies were enough to rekindle my love for transformers and in the 4 years since I have amassed the figures you see below. I know it's nothing compared to the great mass the majority of other posters have, but I believe it's adequate to my needs.
I never really got into the deluxe and voyager figures, as I felt that they weren't detailed enough to warrant the purchase, which left me with the expensive proposition of the leader class.


I live in Australia and the leader class prices of $90+ are a turn off enough to keep my collection small, but I've been lucky enough to go to the States twice now picking up HFTD Starscream and Optimus (I loved ROTF Prime too much to pass), ROTF prime and picking Masterpiece Megatron up in Toys R Us Hong Kong for free- it was missing its feet, gun, frenzy, sword and ball and chain.
If anybody knows where I could source these parts, that would be great ;)

I can cross DOTM Sentinel Prime off my list as it is on its way :D. The figures on my wanted list are MP Prime- Should I wait for MP-10? Or go with MP-01 which can be had for ~$150 delivered to Australia. And MP-09 Rodimus- however have been turned off by reviews of bad quality control and other issues.

Also keen on any other recommendations of larger "Leader Class" detailed figures, but more 'blocky' for lack of a better word- G1 style is what I mean.

Thanks for reading!

great start!! as far as good "blocky" style leaders try rid ultra magnus hes got bulk and great proportions also of note would be movie 1 brawl not too blocky but a fantastic alt mode probably the best from that line

nonetheless nice stuff and look forward to seeing more soon.
