About toys? Who says it's just about toys? :D

I'm getting a Ramondelli commission from him this summer, at Auto Assembly, actually. But if you're in Canada, maybe you could try making it to TFCon in Toronto?

Really diggin' your setup, and I don't think it is ever about quantity (a collection has to start somewhere) it's about aesthetic.

I think you have a quite a large collection at any rate, more than I've gotten at this point. I love how you have your TF art work and comics interspersed throughout.

That is something I would like to do to my room eventually get my literature and eventually get some artwork to put up.

Keep up the good work!

Thank you! I'm actually in the process of selecting a few pieces to be removed.
I'm currently on 101 figures, and with Windblade arriving in the next month or so, that just won't do. [-(

I may go through the Prime and Movieverse shelves to see what I can sort out. :-?


On the other hand - I will never have enough artwork. :D

I really enjoy looking at the art. Really cool avenue of your collection.
The portrait of Kup is fantastic.

Thanks! I do like the Roche pieces, that Kup was my very first Transformers commission, and my gateway into the art and the comics, actually.

Vos is a member of the DJD, a small, sadistic, linguistic rifle with detachable face. What's not to love? :x

For an introduction to Vos, you should take a look at IDW's MTMTE volume 2. The DJD overall are a bit overpowered and fit a lot of Roberts' tropes, but Vos really made its impact on me. Mostly because it's a tiny little robot with loads of spikes - inside his face. :D

Riiiiight. I'm looking at him right now. Thanks. So busy thinking about Overlord's escape, I forgot about the DJD. What a maniacal bunch they are. Maybe one day we'll get some toys of those hooligans.

Good morning to you. :D I can't sleep. :-(

Well you def have to get one for that side as well! Any thoughts on getting the Dioder kits or any other lighting options for them?

I just wish I wasn't so picky about what I want in terms of art. I like a lot of what you have.

I like the variety of your collection too. However there's not enough Alpha Bravo

I'll see what the account says once I complete my move. :P
However, I installed some small rod LED lights in the Italian cabinet, and they don't really do that much more for me, so I doubt I'll try any fixed lighting solution.

Alpha Bravo is waiting in a box for the move, and is not happy at all about it. I can hear him from here.

And thanks! What do you mean by picky?

I'm not satisfied with subset of something. For example I love the Warhammer 40K Lore, but I will never start the miniatures game, because I will want to build an entire 1,000 man-strong Space Marine chapter complete with vehicles and auxillary.

Similarly with art of Transformers. I would want the 13 Primes, or all of Season 1 Autobots and Decepticons, or something like that.

If I get art, it's for my wall and f I keep thinking "Man, that's only halfway complete" everytime I see it, It will bug the heck out of me.

That said, I don't suppose you could PM me some reasonably priced artists? I'm still wanting a 13 Primes piece done...

My current UK collection looks very much like a stack of boxes, to be honest. :P
I'm moving house this weekend, so might have a complete redesign once I do!

How went the move? Did you get your collection up and redesigned yet? Hopefully AB wasn't to traumatized by his box experience...

Looking foward to seeing the next iteration of your UK collection.

How goes the Italy collection?

The move! It went well, I have pretty much more shelving units than I used to, and they're all self-built. All toys survived, though they have yet to find a permanent home, and quite a few might make it back to Italy instead.

The collection is limited to a couple on my desk and the one shelf with comics and Combiner Wars stuff (plus a stowaway Va'al, of course, flitting between there and desk). I'm sure there'll be an addition at some point, but for now, I am content. :D

Looks good compact and concise. I like the prime figures at the top, never handled any of those personally; they look neat though. The art is also looking good really dig all those pieces.

People complained about the lack of Alpha Bravo (Our Lord and Saviour). People have been having fun with their collection threads. People have more time than me.

Today, I had time. And went round picking up some photos from the past month. From when Alpha Bravo wanted a holiday. And I had a conference to attend.

You know, that time.
