One Year Later...

So despite the fact I have "officially" ended my Transformer blogging days, it doesn't mean my collection doesn't still continue to grow and evolve. I suppose my ultimate goal is to have my very last post reflect a completely finished collection room, and when I say finished I mean all the G1 figures and boxes complete and displayed, and all ID tags in place. Things like Masterpiece won't be done for a while so that section will always continue to grow.

A Curator's Dream: Realized (and Thanks for all the Fish)

It has been nearly a year since I began my journey to acquire two of every G1 figure and put them on display. A lot has changed in that time, some good, some bad and some unexpected. But if there is one thing we can count on in this life, it is change. So without further delay, I present what will probably be my final post

I picked up this very interesting piece of paperwork a few months ago, I thought it was a beautiful representation of the '86 and '87 figures. When folded up it is 6" x 9", which is still pretty large for a catalog. Unfolded it is 18" x 24", quite large indeed. Though there are some oddities of note on here that I found interesting.

A Quick Update: G1 Tracks and Kup

I'm considering doing mini updates every time I finish off a figure for my new display, so this is in some ways a test. Here are two I've just finished, enjoy the beauty of the "catalog"shots:

I also did a new background test, but I fear trying to do this for every picture may take up too much time. I think it turned out pretty though!

That's two more down, only about 320 to go!

A Preview of Things to Come

They say a journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step, which is how I am feeling about my newest collecting venture. After taking over twenty seven years to accumulate the entire run of Generation One toys, I am setting myself up to do it all over again.

Where is everyone going? The Exodus

I've become aware of an ever increasing trend in the Transformers community lately: longtime prominent collectors scaling back by orders of magnitude, or getting out of the hobby altogether. I must admit I am not immune to this recent trend as I have recently written about on this very blog. But why are so many collectors seemingly abandoning something they have spent years of their lives working on and obsessing over? I don't know for sure, but I have a few theories.
