Transformers Collecting Part 1

Ever since I was a kid I’ve loved Transformers. I loved watch G1 on TV and getting the toys. While I don’t really remember having a lot of the 80’s G1 toys… I remember wanting alot of them. I still have yet to get the Constructicons Giftset, and now that I’m grown up…. well er…. uh…. 29 years old I’ve reacquired my childhood collection of Generation 1 toys. As well as I’ve started collecting other TF toylines. Currently I have 3 figures from Botcon 2008, I had the rest but resold them to get some extra cash. I have G1 Optimus Prime, Soundwave, Blaster, Astrotrain (Original & Tru Reissue), Blitzwing, Hot Rod, and eHobby Movie Accurate Galvatron. Here are some pics of the collection from when I was at my 1 bedroom apartment earlier in 2008:

Collecting has been awesome even though nowadays I’ve toned it down quite a bit. I love having these figures again. I must admit I was very against Transformers Animated at first, but now that I have the DVD’s and have started collecting the toys this show is awesome. It’s currently in Season 3 and every episode has been excellent. Well with the exception of “Three’s A Crowd” I didn’t like that one too much. In watching this cartoon and seing YouTube video reviews of TFA figures I’ve gone out and bought a few. Here’s the list of what I have:

Leader Class Magnus
Voyager Purple Shockwave (Target Exclusive)


Elite Guard Bumblebee (2)
Elite Guard Jazz (2)
Elite Guard Blurr (2)
Soundwave…. I’m not wasting my $ on a second 1.

The reason why I bought 2 of each of the EG figures is because for me they are extremely difficult to transform…. so I have 1 in Alt Mode & 1 in Robot mode. As much as I hated the animation of the series at first now that I have the DVD’s and have watched them I must say Transformers: Animated has grown on me. However Beast Machines kicks it’s ass.

Take a look at the pics:

I’ll eventually post more of the entire colection once I get better shelving up in the second bedroom and a better camera damn iPhone 2G!!. But truly I love Transformers… I missed out on the Beast Wars and Beast Machines toys, but really don’t want them. I’m not a true completeionist like some people I know (PBM) hahahahahahaahahaha
