You have some horrible reasoning if you think somebody posting a thing in more than one place is somehow totally unacceptable, yet the way you're acting isn't counterintuitively annoying.

I'm gonna go ahead and clarify that "posting news about a TV crossover in the threads for the relevant TV shows" does not qualify as "spamming".

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (01 October 2016 - 11:31 AM)

Also, isn't posting in a spam thread often perceived to be support for said spam?

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (01 October 2016 - 11:31 AM)

I can barely read the grammar in that post.

@  unluckiness : (01 October 2016 - 10:58 AM)

Shouldn't you like, take that up with the other moderators rather than the random passersby reading this thing? Considering that, going by your word, your apparent first response was to resort to defamation, it doesn't reflect well on your assertion of truth.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (01 October 2016 - 10:55 AM)

Did you report the spam through proper channels or did you just whinge about it in a thread?

After the season finale where RM Corp found a way to make thinking Bots, I was hoping for a continuation of the story where Paradim learned the hard way the downside of Bots that can say, "No."

I LOVE BOT MASTER SO MUCH. Too bad the toys sucked. I even own jungle fiver. I love him so much, but he can barely stand on his own.

@  Telly : (27 September 2016 - 04:26 PM)

for the longest time i thought jungle fiver was called jungle fiBer

@  Bass X0 : (27 September 2016 - 04:21 PM)

Does anybody remember the cartoon Bots Master? I enjoyed the show but looking back on it, most of the robot designs were lame. The only cool designs were Jungle Fiver and Ninjzz although the toys were nothing compared to Transformers of course. I thought the main human characters were decent enough for a show about robots. 

@  Verity Carlo : (27 September 2016 - 02:43 PM)

Although this is odd to me, since I'm fairly sure they are/were good friends.


How do you display your collection?

After adding a bunch of Animated figures to my collection im having a little trouble deciding on how to display them.

Here's my dilemma: I dont really think the animated figures fit with the other lines. There just so drastically different from any other line they kinda clash with the other guys. I love these guys so much but cant seem to decide how to fit them in. it also doesnt help that i keep running out of room but thats a whole other story

how do you do it? do you separate them by what line they came, by character (eg put all the primes together), do you separate them by faction, or just mix them all together? also do you keep them in robot mode or alt mode?

I got Animated on a bin and everything else either on top or inside of an armoire.

I had this problem for longgggg time. So I finally figured it out when my animated totals got to about 8 or 9.

My top shelf is Animated in sort of a Autobot vs. Decepticons (And Lockdown) scene.
My 2nd Shelf is Classics/Unicron Trilogy.
My 3rd Shelf is Movieverse.
My 4th Shelf is what has irked me for the last few weeks. My big ol' figs that I can't fit anywhere else. (Cybertron Prime, Movie Wingsaber, Vector Prime, Cybertron Megs, BW Optimal Optimus)

So basically, yeah. Display them by themselves. icon-blitz.gif

Yeah dude, you collect Transformers long enough, you will run into this problem.
There's really only one viable solution: glass enclosed, internally lit display shelves.
something like THIS.

Glass is a must so it doesn't get horribly dusty. And after a year+ the toys will look like crap w/o it.
Lights because the they just look SO much cooler when all lit up!

You're also right, Animated stuff just doesn't look right next to movie. Both excellent in their own right, but not a good fit alongside one another. The only downside to going out and buying a display case is that it's not cheap. Another idea that I did was build my own shelf. In my case, I work out of a home-office. In this office there was a closet. I put white laminate particle board lining all the surfaces, then built in lights, then encased the lights in UV proof glass (so it doesn't fade the toy's plastic) then installed very large glass shelves. In total the closet has 6 shelves that are ~6 foot wide and 2 feet deep. All lit up it looks pretty fantastic. I really need to take some newer pictures! (More pix at the bottom of our, "About Us" page, linked to at the top of unicron.com...

Good luck hombre!

Yeah ive seen your display it looks awesome like that. Sadly i dont have the room for something like that. The truth is i was running out of room a while ago and had to put stuff all over the place it just didnt really get to me until now. at this point ive given up until i can get some new shelves. ultilmetly id like to have a shelf for all the different lines. ill figure something out. your right about the dust i hate it but theres nothing i can do about it. you gotta love that canned air it makes it much easyer to clean the figures!

My collection is relatively small, but space issues are a nuisance these days since every time I purchase new stuff, the small shelves on the closet get even more crowded and is difficult to display figures that way.

Don't have a lot, so I'm not yet running out of space. I keep them mostly all in robot mode on a shelf.

About 20-25 pieces a month in my glass cabinet in my room. Also once a year around late January/early February I sprawl out parts of my collection by category and line all the 'bots up on the floor. I get help from a couple of fellow collectors now to help set it up / take it down. I don't have enough cabinet or floor space to display my entire collection at once, so the cabinet is fun for me to swap out every now and then.
