They are there to let you know when you are going a little overboard though. In the end, people will always be on top of material or monetary issues/things. Budget and restraint.



TF have more display room than my Lego's. Purely as I actually play (transform) my TF figs and Lego's end up being display pieces. So, a lot of my Lego is in storage with a select few impressive sets out on display.



Not gonna bother with posting pics of my collection of either TF as it's not overly impressive (especially seeing some of the more gigantic collections people have posted). Lego is all over the place. I'd rather take pics of specific sets than storage pics.

If anyone spots set 7649 MT-201 Ultra-Drill Walker, it would be highly appreciated to be informed.


Thanks :D

Here's hoping for the sales. Unfortunately I already picked up quite a few of the big sets as I just couldn't wait. There's still a few set's I'm not keen to buy full price. So as you said, I hope there's a percentage off sale soon!

Oh and welcome to the dark side STL. :D

The Creator Plane is pretty damn awesome. With the right colours, it'd make a very mean fiighter jet. One of my favourite non Exo-Force sets to date.

The large boat I picked up last week from a Melbourne seller for $50! Great value but as my lil sister and I begun to play I was very disappointed. Basically, it's a whole lot of large chunks with very little construction. :( My sister absolutely loves it and all the mini figs too.

And I found your surfboard in that set, lcz128!

The Bionicles came from my aunty who's been keeping an eye out for me on her trips to the Sunday market. He's very cool in terms of articulation. Absolutely amazing. And he's also got lots of great pieces for robot parts. That said, his construction is pretty dull.

$99.95 for the Mars Mission set and $34.95 for the Bionicle one, but the 10% got it down to $121.40. Not to shabby
Can't wait to dig into the Mars one
