I'm new here but a long time Transformers fan. I'm 24 at the time of starting this collection, and really excited to finally get all my favorite figures into one collection. When I was younger I had a lot of the original G1 and beast wars figures. Sadly, I moved around alot and they went missing over the years. Well finally I have a steady job making enough money to be able to cover my living expenses and still have a little bit of play money. I want to both document and share all of my acquisitions of each and every figure.
My collection goal is not to have crammed shelves with just a bunch of figures shoulder to shoulder, Its actually to set up cool actions scenes of the figures fighting. I have ordered some clear hanging string and some small suction cups with hooks.
I do have a question for those of you out there that may be reading this. I have kinda a OCD problem if I buy something I want it new in the box, or as new as I can get. I'm a bit worried about opening them after I get them. Some of the ones I am ordering are worth quite a bit of money. I don't know if maybe I should order loose ones also to display and just keep the sealed box ones displayed.
So here is my list of what I have received so far:
Starscream - Voyager Class - 2007 Movie - Sealed in the box
Ratchet - Voyager Class - 2007 Movie - Sealed in the box
What I am expecting in the mail:
Optimus Prime - Masterpiece T.R.U Exclusive - Sealed in Box
Human Alliance Sound Wave - Sealed in Box
Human Alliance Bumblebee - Sealed in Box
Human Alliance Jazz - Sealed in Box
Human Alliance Roadbuster - Sealed in Box
Human Alliance Sideswipe - Sealed in Box
What I plan on getting:
Ironhide - Leader Class
Jetpowered Optimus 2 Pack
The rest of Human Alliance figures
Some sort of Megatron
Sentinel Prime - Leader Class
Blackout - Voyager Class
Shockwave - Voyager Class
Thundercracker - Voyager Class
After I get all these from the movie I plan to get most of Transformers Prime series and get some other figures from different series.
Once I get home I'll get some pictures up of what I have so far, and also once I set up my shelves Ill post some pictures of the setups.
See you later!
