Your Collection

Here recently, I've been wondering how my collection stacks off against others' collections as far as quantity. I currently own 268 figures in my collection and I'm looking to expand but I need to slow down on my buying rate due to my moving out of the house.

It took me about 14 years to accumulate this many figures(not including the ones that I used for customs) and I really don't think I would want to go back and collect this many again so I plan on keeping them.

How does my collection compare to yours?

364 figs, more if you include Robot Heroes, Revoltech, and smaller Titanium figs. collection started in 1996 with Beast Wars' Armordillo. Newest purchase was movie Scout class Ransack. 6 bookshelves each with 5 shelves. (An entire shelf of non-aligned Minicons, jeeeeeze) have a little bit of (almost) every line since BW. .. BW, BM, Machine Wars, BW 10th, Aleternators, Armada, Cybertron, RID, Robot Heroes, Classics, Universe 2.0, Movie 07, Animated, Movie 09, even a Masterpiece. No imports.

No convention exclusives, nothing from Energon (unless you count the Classics Devastator, it being a repaint) and nothing from the old Universe line. Least favorite toy in my collection would EASILY be that monstrosity Leobreaker. Favorite? hmmm. Way too hard to tell.

Might provide pictures later.

The only "exclusive" figures that I own are some of the collectors club exclusives and my FansProject City Commander set, but I really wouldn't count him. I have more rare figures than exclusives though. I own a boxed Beast Wars Transmetals Optimus Primal autographed by GC, a boxed Beast Wars Transmetals Megatron autographed by DK, along with a few others.

Wait, so we can include revoltechs? Ok, then bump the original number up by 3.

Do you know if the Destroy Monarch G1 Megatron knock-off is any good? I was considering buying a few.

You know i don't really care about that ever since Masterpiece Megatron was released. i plan to buy that and an original G1 Megatron and that'll be it for my Megatron's who have gun alt forms

Sorry!

I see, I can't get enough G1 Megatron-y goodness!
I'll buy it simply for the gun mode. I already own a G1 Megatron, the G1 Megatron reissue, G1 Megaplex, and Masterpiece Megatron and while I enjoy the looks of the Masterpiece Megatron, I still feel that he leaves MUCH to be desired. I pretty sure that FansProject could clear this up with an add on set but for some reason they haven't, go figure.

Haven't you heard of the Justitoys MP5 Upgrade Package for Masterpiece Megatron? (ignore that it says "gundam").
