Should it bother me that I think I have more toys on my shelves here in my little 2 bedroom apartment than they do :P?

I know I've got way more Beast Wars at least, that's for sure.

On the black prime shelf there is a titanium war within nemesis prime, I've never seen that before.

Also, several of those cases make some semblance of thematic sense, while others just feel like random figures cobbled together with little-to-no rhyme or reason.

I was just thinking, despite the sweet display of awesome TFs, it's not as good as it can be without incorporating some of the great 3rd party figures (not that i expected that, obviously), which ultimately makes my own collection better :P Ex. Hexatron would look great next to MP Grimlock in that display. And one of the 3rd party Devastators too.

Yeah, sure enough. My only guess would be either a prototype or, more likely due to the presence of others in these picks, a Lucky Draw figure.

Hey, who put my TFs collection inside glass displays?

Ha ha. I wish.

Is it sad that my first thought was to wonder how many of the sealed G1 figures are actually KOs?

I agree with some of you guys: these displays could be better. For one, the poses are mostly awful - very stiff and boring. Like they were put up quickly, under a tight time frame. And yeah, some themes would be nice - I like the battlefields, but why not do an entire Autobot vs Decepticon battle (on Cybertron)?

I have seen better displays from members here. >:oP

I'd still love to see this exhibit... but the lackluster gift shop would inevitably disappoint. ALL THAT G1 GOODNESS AND THE GIFT SHOP HAS CRAP PRIME, KREO, BIONICLES, ETC.! :BANG_HEAD: :BANG_HEAD: :BANG_HEAD:

If they offered an exclusive G1 reissue, the attendance would skyrocket. :michaelbay:

The Boxed G1 Display - Perfect

The Figure Display - Okay

The Merchandise Section - Why can't you exist in the United States Toy Markets. :sad:

Does anyone else see a white MP12 next to the black Rodimus cases?

That's MP-12T: Tigertrack. He has special black & white packaging since he's an eHobby exclusive, but he's yellow.

Those folks put a lot of work into making those displays. They look very nice :)

k, when i become a multi millionaire and finished building a real life optimus prime, and have my home theatre kitted out to resemble the ark from the g1 cartoon, my house will look very much like that.

Main difference will be a focus on g1 and i'll have a toy for each mode...

A little help please?

Who is the orange guy hanging out with Cybertron Metroplex and Menasor?

Who is the little guy (in addition to Rumble and Frenzy) hanging out with MP Soundwave and Ultra Magnus?

If all of the toys were for sale that would be the best toy store ever. If they were all their original prices that would be amazing.

Seriously, why doesn't Hasbro have a Transformer Museum here in the US. They just have to buy an empty corn field and build a nice building. They could charge and we would still go, then have some reissues and we would buy those.

Cybertron Quickmix

I believe that's Offshoot, the Targetmaster partner for Hasbro's Masterpiece Rodimus Prime.

Unless I'm very much mistaken, that's the unreleased, yes I said unreleased, Activator Electromagnetic Soundwave.

Now here are my questions:

How much of the display is corporate?

How much of it is private collectors?

MISB stuff private or corporate?

Either way that is hellaciously impressive.

Thanks. Surprised they didn't put him together with MP Rodimus.


Anyone recognize the pre-Transformers binoculars? (2nd shelf from the bottom)
