Weapon: Double-Barreled Crystalizer Cannon
My wife thinks Im insane cause I said I want a house with a big garage that will be my sanctuary. For my lil house gym and my beloved Transformers.

I gotta get one of those G1 reissue Primes. It was my first major TF I ever owned, it has nostalgic value more than anything for me.

Get one of the Encore reissues while they are still cheap. They are close enough to the original to make you happy.

Those are displayed verey nicely.

i usualy dont like lookning at big collections, but i think yours are shelved nicely and would be very easy to take a walk around the room and see everything.

Now, as always, i must ask, care to tell us what field you are employed in? lol

I've has a dozen or so girls in the toy room and so far only one was like "this is weird".

I also have a Hotwheels room that's almost as impressive :grin:

OK, so there are what, about 60k different Hot Wheels cars? That'd be pretty rough to do. :lol: I bet a ton of tracks in a room would be awesome, though.

While I don't have any tracks... I do have Hotwheels in the thousands sealed, displayed on the walls

Thanks so much for sharing David, your collection is just so overwhelming. Browsing your MISB collection is like dreaming a dream, walking into a toy store full of Transformer toys, no empty shelves with pegs, no price tags, no competition shoppers.

I like your TF room's red/purple paint scheme, really brings out the spirits. What I liked the most was your shelving systems were so simple (I see those white wire shelves are fully adjustable in height), yet highly effective with no space wasted.

I'm glad you have a good number of toys loosen out for play/display, especially those Alternators. Gosh seeing your collection makes me wanna go MISB too. Again thanks for sharing your collection & I'm looking forward to seeing more.

Cheers!

I really Appreciate it!!!

Yeah I went with Autobot Red & Decepticon Purple on the walls. I tried to match them as close as possible to the G1 box colors. The reason the other walls are blue is because it used to have hotwheels on those walls. I then turned another bedroom into the Hotwheels room and made alot more room for more Transformers.....which I'm out of room again :cry:

I did. $120 for my least favorite Alt based on a very minor character was no problem for me.

that's pretty impressive but do you ever get sick of just looking at the boxes? don't you just want to open them all up sometimes?

I would like to play with some of them but I still get just as much enjoyment keeping the sealed. If I get an itchy trigger finger, so to speak, I will jut buy another one and open it ;;)

That's a really cool collection. I open almost everything, but when I looked at yours all arranged nicely in package I can appreciate that as well.

So, what's the overall head count at? I could probably go through the pictures and count, but I've probably got better things to do tonight... well, actually, I don't, but I'm not going to count them anyway. :)

It seems to me that all of your TFs packaging is as close to perfect as it can possibly get. I'm guessing that is one of your requirements upon purchase?

My question is, have you ever passed up on a desperately needed toy because the packaging was not up to par? I just can't picture a badly dented misb in your collection.

As a matter of fact I WILL pass up a wanted toy if the packaging is not in good condition....unless I want one to open
