@  Lazy Garou : (29 April 2017 - 04:31 PM)

they don't kill. they eat half of your face, and you're left with a hideous tumor where the barnacle is.

@  Locoman : (29 April 2017 - 03:49 PM)

Perhaps the barnacle, consumed with guilt at what he'd done, took his own life after killing everyone

@  Lazy Garou : (29 April 2017 - 02:28 PM)

parasitic barnacles are the stuff of nightmares

@  MEDdMI : (29 April 2017 - 01:39 PM)

But barnacles don't have- *checks* "The main sense of barnacles appears to be touch, with the hairs on the limbs being especially sensitive. The adult also has a single eye, although this is probably only capable of sensing the difference between light and dark.[4]†This eye is derived from the primary†naupliar eye." Huh.

He looked in a mirror

@  Evac : (29 April 2017 - 01:26 PM)

He was killed by his own ugliness. Kind of a "Hoist by His Own Petard" thing.

@  MEDdMI : (29 April 2017 - 01:12 PM)

How did the barnacle get killed if everyone died from his ugliness?

@  Whirl Maximus : (29 April 2017 - 11:09 AM)

I've been watching clips of the Japanese dub of the Sunbow movie. Comes with added SCREAMS!

@  Bass X0 : (29 April 2017 - 09:57 AM)

But the ugly barnacle realised he would grow up to become a beautiful oyster. Only he was killed before then for being so ugly.

@  Locoman : (29 April 2017 - 09:46 AM)

That didn't help at all!

@  Evac : (29 April 2017 - 09:32 AM)

Once there was an ugly barnacle. He was so ugly, that everyone died! The end.

instead of blackjack, we have dice rolls in the RP and there was an actual card game in another thread.

@  Bass X0 : (28 April 2017 - 05:19 AM)

They could start their own Beast Mayhem with Blackjack and Hookers.

@  MEDdMI : (28 April 2017 - 05:16 AM)

There's plenty of talented artists in Beast Mayhem! ....though we tend to draw things that can't be posted anyway. :doh

@  wlg3 : (28 April 2017 - 01:15 AM)

I really enjoy the creative sub forums of TFW, though, like their kitbash and fan art forums. The creative forums have lots of talented, friendly people and is an active, supportive community.

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.

So... how do you eat a Reese's?

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.
