    Default 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!

    My doctor said that I'm ok to interact online as long as I remember to take my medications regularly.

    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
