Pretty sure this qualifies as an addiction. Bonus points for those who can comment on figures I’m missing ;)
Red Alert and the other 4 Stunticons, (Namely the 2 that have been released.) I also noticed Ultra Magnus is missing from your SG collection.
Kingdom Red alert is behind smokescreen in S2 photo. He’s just hiding a bit lol.
Working on the stunticons. Just recently got motormaster from hasbropulse ebay since he was on sale. I have a policy of only getting commanders and titans on sale. Trying to get more mainline retail figures on sale too hence why the stunticons taking a while to complete
Funny that you mention SG Magnus bc I just bought him along with SG blaster from pulse since they’re running a 25% off holiday sale. What I’m really missing is SG jetfire who I probably never get since he’s so expensive now.
I see him now! He is certainly hiding. Also, that's a pretty good policy. I would follow it but after the Jetfire & Skylynx debacle, I'm constantly worried about missing out on Commanders. Especially with how much I saw Motormaster fluctuating on Amazon.
Ahh I gotchu no worries. Better to pay retail than aftermarket prices later.
they are re releasing siege jetfire. you can get him on aliexpress or big bad toy store.
I have siege jetfire but I need shattered glass jetfire. Sadly I don’t think he’ll get reissued
4 Stunticons have been released so far
No, 5 have been REVEALED. But depending on where you are, it's really hard to get most of them. I know I'm still waiting for my Dead End pre-order.
I literally am looking at 4 of them that I bought right now
[Photo I just took](https://i.imgur.com/2EbPqYr.jpg)
See the part where I said, "depending on where you live." I'm not saying that they're not available for anyone. I'm saying that Dead End isn't coming out where I am until January. And Breakdown isn't until March.
And SG Jetfire
And SG Blaster. I missed a lot of the SG characters. I haven't memorized which ones have/haven't been released.
Gonna be hard pressed to find Jetfire
Yeah. I'd given up on him, but now that he's being renewed, I have some hope!
Wait really? Cool. I'm lucky I got him right away
Inferno is missing from beast wars s1 Predacons. Although that should just be Predacons because ravage first appeared in season 2.
Hauler and hubcap aren't really diaclone at all but my collection is like three figures so I can't really talk.
Ur so right no worries. Problem I have here is space so I have to put some bots in places they don’t really belong.
Some noticeable offense include: Bruticus in S1 decepticons, Jetfire in S2 autobots, my “diaclone” shelf is just a mess of repainted bots lol, my misc autobot shelf started off as S3 bots like skylynx and sixgun but I just started putting random bots there etc
Still pretty proud of the set up though
Yeah it's a nice set-up
Great collection! Did you manage to track them all down at retail?
I've had the same addiction for four decades.
There is no cure...
There truly isn’t. Worst part is that I also like Beast wars, cybertron trilogy and animated too. So I don’t even get to take a break during legacy.
Sometimes I wish I only liked G1 😭 would be way easier on the wallet
You could always use a Diaclone Bluestreak to liven up the party.
he’s def on my list ;)
Sky Lynx: "Misc Autobots??? I deserve to be in a class all my own thank you very much!"
Haha he truly does deserve better. I blame my lack of space. One day though…
Just wow! I'm on the same boat
Absolutely beautiful collection. Very jealous.
That's an excellent collection. I've put together an almost identical collection over past 2 years as a born again collector who grew up with G1 and it's been brutal on my wallet since I missed out on so many rarer figures.
I feel you. Luckily I started collecting since siege so a lot of these figures I haven’t really missed out on. Went back for some Prime wars figures but none were that expensive or much over retail if at all. I prioritize exclusives bc I know how much they get scalped later on. Luckily haven’t missed any that a deem too important. Although I would still like a SG jetfire at a non-bankrupting price 😭
I've had to spend way more than I feel comfortable admitting buying up rare figures from Siege era. I wish I had been paying attention back then. I just kind of never cared about Transformers because figures always looked so childish, I'd never feel good about displaying them. But once I ventured into a toy aisle and saw what Hasbro was putting out, I was hooked. Now I'm stuck dropping huge amounts for Skywarp and Centurion Drone, etc. Only thing I'm missing from Siege now is that Greenlight, and I doubt I'll get it because it carried on that POTP aesthetic and wasn't a proper Siege figure.
Ah I totally get that. FOMO feels rough. That’s me with some Marvel Legends releases rn lol. Kinda insane how much figures can go for nowadays.
I agree that Greenlight is definitely an interesting release. Guess they just wanted to finish up that lineup/orthia combiner. She’s okay ig but mainly only got her for completionist sake lol.
How come Spinneret is a member of your X-Men?
haha how’d you even notice that?
Short answer: lack of space
Longer answer: Most of my x men are in my apartment back in college (can see in my post history) but I had to leave some behind here back home along with some spider-man figures like spinneret and iron spider.
It do be like that huh. I don't even have that many and its taken more than two hundred off me
You got the Quintesson pit?!?!?! Dayum, what a score!
yepp it’s such a nice display piece. Got it when it first came out. enjoyed it ever since
If you don’t mind me asking - how much for all of that?
Too much 😭 Haven’t actually kept track of how much I’ve paid for everything. I just set a budget for figures per roughly 3 months (an academic school quarter) and make sure I stick to it. Sometimes gotta compensate though by eating instant ramen. That stuff cheap and filling ngl
Your wallet has fought bravely from one collector to another I salute you
many thanks hope both our wallets survive the experience lol
Was it worth it? Yes. Your collection is awesome
Haha thanks! Sometimes I get a bit anxious thinking how much time and money I spend on this hobby but then I think about YOLO and how life is just too short so just enjoy it however you want.
My thoughts exactly I hope to complete my collection like that one of these days. On the bright side, at least were collecting generations/mainline figures. Imagine being a masterpiece collector
Haha so true. I just can’t afford MP/3rd party figures rn. Maybe when I get a job with a stable influx of cash after I graduate lol
You’ll be opening up a whole new Pandora’s box with MP & ￼3P, but it’s so worth it
Where did you get the Octane and Omega Supreme? Also I’ve got to find that double dealer. I had the original but he’s some how been lost. Actually I’ve prob lost half my collection in various moves now.
Octane I got discounted at an Ollie’s a couple years ago. Omega Supreme was maybe earlier this year from bbts when they restocked the figure.
And I feel you. Moving is kinda scary to me because I understand that losing figures in the move is an inevitability. But I’m about to graduate college soon and obviously get my own place so can’t hold off on that forever.
Dang man, you got this in college!? I didn’t trust anyone enough to deploy mine in college. I couldn’t even keep people’s hands off them in my office.
Yeah my last move lost all of my armada figures. That was a cluster of a move, most of my cross country treks I put everything in storage and just take must haves, then when I come back through or back in general get them all out.
Also can’t believe you found octane at Ollie. I really need to start walking Ollies and Ross.
How did you manage to not get yellowing figures?! WFC Megs & Soundwave and even SG Starscream look perfect
Haha luck maybe? Haven’t had any problems with yellowing (although my coronation starscream did come with a slightly discolored arm) I never have my figures in direct sunlight so maybe that’s another factor?
Careful looking; Shitpiece is in there twice and both times he wins "The Game".
You’re missing Inferno for your S1 cast, Ravage doesn’t show up until S2 as well
Yep legacy inferno on my list. Can’t wait to finish up the S1 predacons.
And yeah ur right ravage is just there for now until they start making later season characters and transmetals
When we were kids there were always legends of a kid that had “the whole collection.” You’re that kid 🙌🏼
Haha my kid self would be soo jealous. But honestly with how much of a menace I was as a kid, half these figures would be either broken or have pieces missing lol.
Where is Snarl? Is he safe?
Is that a custom Junkion behind Mainframe
Yep. It’s nonnef’s conversion set to turn wreckgar into rubbish. Was lucky enough to find a second discounted wreckgar to convert.
Where did you get ratchet in the first photo
From amazon back when it came out. This is the ratchet from the galactic odyssey medic pack with nonnef kit. Long gone now though
Sad it’s so hard to find a good ratchet for under like $100
Ur in luck though. There’s already a listing for a SS86 ratchet that should come out next year. Just gotta hold out for a few months
That’s awesome will go perfectly with my 86 ironhide do you have a link to the listing
don’t think there’s an amazon or walmart listing yet but you can read about it here:
Whos the wheeljack looking guy in the mercenary section?
Exhaust from generations selects line with nonnef upgrade kit
Cool, thank you much
Skylynx deadass got that, “Damn bro you got the whole squad laughing 😐” face
You are not alone my friend
I have noticed that there is no sea spray also that skylynx and goldbug could be in the season 3 group
For minibots like seaspray, I’ve decided to wait for an updated deluxe version and not the previous prime wars legends. The only reason I have beachcomber is bc it was a gift. Will definitely get the upcoming legacy deluxe beachcomber though.
And yeah my “misc autobots” section started off as a s3 autobots (without the movie cast) but I was running low on space and I had so few S3 autobots so I just started putting random bots there
Oh got it I didn’t even know that there was a beachcomber coming out thanks for informing me on that
Ravage and transmutate would make a good start to a s2 shelf… if only we had confirmation of a rampage or depthcharge
Bro even got that cybertronian bumblebee
Ight I’ve got £10, give me your collection now please thanks
Awesome collection! But just so you know, Bruticus debuted in season 2, while Jetfire, the Rainmakers, and Kickback first appeared in season 1. Unless you already knew that and you display them like that for space reasons, in which case nvm lol
Okay...\*MAJOR PROPS\* to you for your G1 collection! 👍 As a big G1 fan myself, I know the feeling of pouring A LOT of your money 💸 into your G1 collection. One difference between us is that I keep my collection in-box while you enjoy yours...both approaches (I think) are good...and it just depends on how you wish to enjoy your collection. I love how you upgraded a few of your figures (such as Grimlock and Ratchet).
You're one of the few people I see that absolutely have more G1 figures than me. I pride myself on collecting G1 figures...but honestly I've begun to question collecting the obscure characters (such as Hauler) especially since I don't have any emotional attachment to them nor will they ever have a spotlight shined on them. The G1 figures that I have that I don't see in your collection are:
1. Brawn (Titans Return...hoping they have a Legacy version soon)
2. Seaspray (Titans Return...hoping they have a Legacy version soon)
3. Windcharger (Power of the Primes...hoping they have a Legacy version soon)
4. Powerglide (Combiner Wars...hoping they have a new version soon)
5. Sweep (or are you using another Scourge for a Sweep?)
6. Centurion Drone
7. Sparkless Bot & Seeker (Two figures I regret purchasing if I'm being honest)
Transformers that I want (and I think you do too...):
1. Gears (in my opinion) desperately needs a definitive G1 figure.
3. G1 Hound (soon to be released in the Buzzworthy line)
Anyways...well done! 👍 Happy Thanksgiving & I hope to see your collection again here in the future! 😁
Generations has taken a toll on your wallet, you might need a line of credit for the G1 collection.
ah yes, my favorite Fembot
