Man, you've really been racking em up! Are these all internet purchases, or are you lucky enough to have a comic/hobby/toy shop near you?

Hi GetRightRobot, thanks for commenting.
The purchases are a bit of both, I have a few toy stores that are within10-15 minutes drive that I stop by once in a while, but most shops here have the same figures in stock so it is hard to find any real treasures. I guess 80% of them are Internett purchases.

Hi zombiethon,

Nice collection mate.

I bought that KO Devastator set to. Unfortunately my Mixmaster's arm broke off the second or third time I transformed him, so after that I lost confidence in the rest of the set. Although it wasn't a complete disaster in the end, I was able to use the box as a nice storage case for my original loose G1 Constructicons.

Have you experienced any such problems with yours?

Hey MightyMagnus, thanks for stopping by !
no I haven' had problems with my Mixmaster, but Hook sits very loosely in that thing that connects him to Long Haul. This also is very loose on Long Haul as well. Hopefully I can get a hold of the Crazy Devy chest/waist connection piece. The cheapo Devastator (the one on the lett in the pics) has much better fit.

Finally completed my Human Alliance collection, and added two Classics I've been coveting for a few years now, I'm also super pleased with the Superion figure :)

Re: zombiethon's little collection is growing - placed order for

Have a few new additions in the mail that I really look forward to, but the one that has me really exited now is the TFClub Hercules. I'm a huge Devastator fan and I've been following threads on this and other forums trying to get as much info as possible - yesterday I could not resist any longer and placed an order for Exgraver from RobotKingdom. It's expensive at US$ 77.90, but man I just got to have this set!

Did anyone else jump on this?

Nice additions man! Yea, I jumped on the Exgraver the first moment I could! I'm nervous about the 3rd party Devy though. He looks completed and that leads me to believe he will be sold as a set. Even though I believe he will be smaller, a lot can go wrong in the year it will take to complete the Hercules set.

Thanks for saying so! It's a little thing, but it's slowly evolving :)

A friend of mine recently moved to Tokyo for a 3-year period. He was in a toystore yesterday and found me a Masterpiece Megatron! Believe me when I say he's going to be my TF pimp in Japan :grin:.

Also had a productive day yesterday. Went on a road trip to Calais in France and found Cybertronian Bumblebee, Turbo Tracks, Generations Thrust and Special ops Jazz at TRU ...it was a good day :D

Nice haul! I feel you about the Japanese hookup, my Bro-in-law is going to be working in Hong Kong for about 2 weeks, I've already mapped out the city for stores with Transformers, new and vintage alike. Combined with the power of Facetime, He will be my personal shopper! Chinese Connection! BTW, that Tracks is one of my favorite figures from ALL of the classics lines, congrats, he is a winner!

Awesome collection..... getting bigger fast it looks like.

have you opened your Brawl by chance? If not I'm wondering what you do about batteries in the TF's? I've seen a post on the toy forums about someone who decided to take out there batteries in a TF and the acid leaked out and left a mess.

Hi Dirk, yeah I stepped up the pace a bit lately and my wife told me yesterday, with a grin on her face, that it was time that I got her something nice in return for her " slightly worn" tolerance :P

It's still unopened and I've had him for close to a year now...To clarify - did the acid leak because they opened the toy up, or because they had been left too long in the toy?

Yeah, my wife is the same way.

I'll see if I can go back and find it in the forums.

viewtopic.php?f=4&t=62246&p=1033251&hilit=battery#p1033251

It's only 2 pages w/ about 13 post. But pretty good stuff. Your call though. I've got some to go through and check out now that I think about it

Ouch! That does not look good at all - commencing operation "Remove Batteries" tomorrow! Thanks very much for the heads-up!

In the long term pretty much just the small flat watch batteries are safe to leave in toys, it might take years or decades but eventually you will get leakage from all larger batteries. I take them out of all my figures, but then all mine are open. Toys being supplied with batteries installed is a nightmare for MiB collectors.

Yeah, I guess thats why they use those as ROM batteries on computer motherboards.

After rearranging the Detolf display case (getting a second Detolf) I noticed that my Classics Powerglide has become rather silent, so I guess he's next in line...if I can figure out how to open him up that is.

Latest update in my current haul streak is...2010 Predaking...OH YEAH!! Found one on Ebay at a price that I could not resist. I've been wanting one since I first saw one at TRU when I was on vacation with my parents to Orange county California in 1988. He was a bit expensive even then, so I ended up with a G1 Galvatron, which I still have.

Hey, thanks for the photo GetRightRobot ;)^ It's a great looking piece of plastic! Mine is sadly still unopened. The "unveiling" has been delayed because we've had visitors to our house the whole week. Tonight though...

I have a photo of him in the box - not to interesting but I can add some photos of the latest haul to keep him company:
