Default My 30 years of Transformers

Yesterday (November 28th) was the 30th birthday of my Transformers collection, with Beachcomber being my very first toy back in 1985, resulting in a collection of over 6,000 Transformers toys and figurines today.

To commemorate that milestone, I want to go through the entire collection with photos and video clips (or as much as I can), posted here at Ozformers, on facebook, at TFW2005, and on twitter.

It's #my30yearsofTransformers and it will take a few weeks to go through, so I hope people find it interesting.



(this is in the public "creative" section during this photo presentation to allow me to link to it to non-members - it will be moved back to the collections section at the end)

Before I get onto the individual display cases, here are some photos of the collection rooms, with 37 display cases (at this time).

And a quick video of the collection at 5,000 toys earlier this year.

Happy birthday! For Primus sake never let me enter your house, unless you want to find half your Transformers missing!

Your collection rooms are probably bigger than my entire HK apartment!

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!

p.s. My son thinks your collection photos are one of the best things on the internet and wants to have a "house" like that one day too. He looks at the photos of your shelves with loving adoration so he's going to LOVE seeing your figures in more detail.
