It's a shame it isn't the actual Beachcomber toy I got 30 years ago, as I lost it during a house move in the 90s.
That's one thing I'm always jealous of with other collectors, who still have their first Transformers toy (often well played with).

Gosh I love looking at your collection photos. That BigW Optimus always make me drool.
Thanks for sharing your incredible collection with us. I can't wait for you to share more!
Next time you are in Australia, you'll have to do a stopover in Brisbane.
I don't mind people I know to come and check out the toys... it's the only use they get until they end up in a public museum.

No carpet or pets, and doors are kept closed as much as possible. But they still get dusty because they aren't enclosed cabinets... and the last time I had the inspiration to clean the toys (which isn't easy), I only ended up getting through the first three display cases before I gave up.

I'm only about 8 years at the moment. Most of my Early Transformers have unfortunately been lost, except for 2 (Movie Inferno and Big Daddy)

It's just a shame that I didn't get into Transformers until the end of its second year... so there are people here who have been a collector longer than me.
