Congrats on 30 years of collecting and that is a mighty impressive collection. I'm looking forward to seeing updates.

Appreciate you going to all the effort to share your collection with us. Really interesting to see and looking forward to more!
I've given up trying to recall my actual anniversary. Chronology doesn't quite line up with childhood memories.

Griffin, you may have started "late" but you've more than made up for it!

I am really enjoying this...

I was hoping to do something similar for my 30 years, this Christmas which is the 30 year anniversary of when I got my 1st Optimus Prime (still have it too). But it would look like copying and I only have 2000+ no where near Griffins number.

While Griff's quantity is truly impressive sometimes it's the quality that counts But yeah, he has the quality too

If it inspires others to do the same, I think everyone will benefit from seeing long-term collections.... not just mine.
I even created a twitter & facebook hashtag that could be used by others who reach the milestone, to maybe get others who have reached 30 years to detail what their 30 years of this hobby were like.

(this has been moved to 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)
