Motto: "What'd I miss?"
Weapon: Laser Pistol
Updated 05-01-15

Big edit time.

With a mini-prjkt due within 2 weeks, I had to pack up my little man-cave and bring everything downstairs that would fit, everything else went in the cupboard.

With a little tetris magic and a couple of afternoons of dismantling furniture, carting it down a flight of stairs then reassembling I managed to get everything set up, including the 2m tall display case the big boss at work wanted to throw out.

Fast-forward past the Christmas rush at work where a good portion of my TFs were boxed up, I now have my display set up ready to go.

Here are some pics:

The main shelf:

WFC/FOC shelf:

"Extras" cube: (Those I couldn't quite fit on the top shelf, or are already represented in some other way)
Image

Prime cube: (Didn't know I had that many Prime figures...)
Image

Movie-verse cube: (The least populated section so far)

Couple of other little "bonuses"

Big fan of the games as well so I mainly I collect just the figures based of that from the Generations line. But still have a few others.
Do you also have limited shelf space? they look cool clumped together but I think sometimes it takes away from an indiviual character.

Wow, some very nice shiny metallic stuff out there, and all in such a compact space.
Nice job! :D

Yeah not much room - 2 bedroom rental and that's just one side of a multi-purpose room. Barely had enough roo to set up the lighting stands to take those shots. I also like the fact that they look like an army. A force to be reckoned with.

I guess I could have used the top shelf of my computer desk (where I shot the pics for my [url]http://www.seibertron.com/energonpub/takara-exclusive-infiltrator-starscream-review-t99676.php]Infiltrator Starscream Review[/url], but the slightest knock on anywhere on the desk would cause figures to take a tumble.

I do "rotate" each character around, so everyone gets their turn at the front (except voyagers and larger, they're easy enough to see regardless)

Thanks. Yeah I'm a sucker for a shiny paint job.

Managed to find a Henkei Lambor for a decent price, so should have Sideswipe in position sometime next week.

On a scale on one to awesome, this is at least mega wicked.

Seriously, your Classics shelf makes me all kinds of jelly.

How have you managed to collect so many toys. I hope you have more space in case of any more additions. The collection looks like military troops.

Motto: "What'd I miss?"
Weapon: Laser Pistol
Unfortunately in Aus, very few of these actually reached our shores, so most of this has been online purchasing, with the exception of FOC Soundwave, minions, Shockwave and Optimus.
The platinum AOE Prime/Grimlock set was also a store purchase, along with Metroplex.

Everything else has been online. Mostly BBTS and Robot Kingdom, and HLJ for much of the Takara Generations line that I have. Managed to grab a few restocks or "warehouse finds" to grab some older characters like United Bee, Jazz and Blurr.

I've been lucky with some of the recent special editions re-releasing the older character molds, but I've had to resort to eBay for some (ie Prowl and Bluestreak, and I just purchased Universe Smokescreen last night from the 'bay). However, due to the often high price, I don't really buy from there very often.

There aren't many older characters that I'm still looking for, but have quite a few on pre-order/in my POL on BBTS, including all upcoming generations deluxes (Windblade, Crosscut, Nightbeat, Jhiaxus, Arcee, Chromia), voyagers (Rhinox, Skybyte, Roadbuster), a few legends (Cosmos, Gears, Skrapnel, Acid Storm and another Tailgate - last two only because the single pre orders of their wave mates were sold out), leader Jetfire, TFCC Chromedome and the new release of Hexatron and big ass swords for him.

Many of those are due this month, so there's going to be some re-arrangement I think... There's still some room on the 'con side at the back, bits and pieces on the 'bot, and I'll move Metroplex (and maybe Green Giant/Devastator) to the small table to the right of the shelf, giving plenty of room for the incoming voyagers. I might have to take Wreck-gar's ride away and move Junkheap to a lower shelf.

Next year's challenge will be finding space for the incoming combiners...

EDIT: Also have some reprolabels sets in my cart awaiting purchase... Tailgate Rhinox, Whirl, Smokescreen, G3 Trailer...

Got bored on a day off, and started reorganising things a little in lieu of a pending shipment from BBTS.

Then I did this (sorry for the slightly dark image, too lazy to set up lighting)

Image

All my classics-verse Autobots that are pretty much in the same scale (Whirl and Warpath might be a tiny bit small, but the scout/legends cars definitely don't fit)

As you can see, couple of new additions - most obviously is the new Leader class Jetfire (very nice) and Universe 2.0 Inferno

That is quite an impressive collection! Looks like you have your legions all lined and ready for orders.

How long have you been collecting to reach this point?

As for a challenger to Devastator...

There are the 3rd party dinobot combiners (If you are into that sort of thing).

Or the 3rd party Superion combiners they look pretty sharp, haven't seen any review of them to date...
I am very suspicious of people who don't like dogs, but I totally trust a dog that doesn't like a person...

Been collecting since the tail end of 2012, so not all that long a time, I've just been focused.

And here's another, more recent shot from last night. Going to need more shelf space soon - I've had to move my "big guys" off to the side table (Metroplex, Green Giant, CW Superion, Hexatron etc)

Well had to move a fair bit of stuff around, and scored a free display case, so new photos.
