Hello from Sydney
 
Good morning all,

I'd like to (re)introduce myself. I hail from Sydney and have been collecting on and off since 1995, still have a few "classic" G1 releases from 1990-1991.

Have been a "dormant" member of Ozformers since the beginning and some of the "old-timers" might remember me. I'm trying to be more social generally, and decided Ozformers and its forums are one way of doing that.

Have a decent sized but disparate collection, mostly in storage as I have been moving from rental property to rental property on a frequent basis over the past decade. Hoping to move to Hobart this year and finally have a place to call my own and room for my collection.Currently collecting Titans Return.

Will try and post-here on a semi-regular basis.

Thanks,
DarrenTron

Welcome aboard the Board!

I think many of us can sympathise with the 'not having enough room' for our collection feeling. I'd say about 90% of mine is off display at any one time.

Welcome back to the boards!

And I can agree - not having enough room in a rental property for your collection (and knowing you have to pack/unpack it again and again) sucks!

Welcome back Darren and here's to everyone being a bit more social around here! Especially that Sinner Twinnie dude.

My doctor said that I'm ok to interact online as long as I remember to take my medications regularly.
Welcome! How ya doin'?

Hi! Wow, moving to Hobart ;) Sydney property price is really unaffordable :mad:

Hi, I'm new here too.
I want to live in hobart or Launceston too, grew up in Tassie.
But alas easier to find work, (and transformers) in Melbourne.

Thanks for the greetings all.

Sydney is too expensive and I like Hobart a lot.

For those who rent, how do you store the majority of your TF collection? I used to be able to rely on my parent's garage, but circumstances have seen me rent a storage unit (for surplus furniture and TFs).

I store my toys in Kennard's archive boxes, wrapped in snack bags, with a smaller bag for weapons accessories. Plastic peanuts, shredded paper and bubble wrap act to prevent each item from hurting one another.

Best regards
Darren
