Once in a while we have the pleasure of meeting a Transformers collector who goes beyond the norm, beyond just amassing plastic for personal amusement and satisfaction. Someone whose roots run deep into the Transformers community and even a little of the industry itself. A person who gives back as much as he takes, providing great service for collector friends, helping make the hobby a better place through creativity, talent and hard work.
You would think it’s getting harder to find collectors with something fresh to contribute during these interviews, but there is certainly no shortage of quality when it comes to those left to feature. This month’s spotlight falls on Italian Transformers and pre-Transformers collector Marco Salerno. A shining beacon of humility, modesty and quick with praise for collectors he feels are more worthy than he of said spotlight, Marco is an example to all of how best to make use of the information available to today’s collector.
It has been a while that we've featured a Transformers collection. After seeing the images from the The Tomb of Spurt Reynolds, I just had to post about. The images show his new collection room converted from the garage in his house. The presentation is just gorgeous. I must say, he did an amazing job showing off his large collection of Transformers and many Brave Series figures too. Check out the The Tomb of Spurt Reynolds and share your comments.

There are undoubtedly some very dedicated Transformers collectors out there and TFormers Community member "Galvatron74" is definitely up there. This transfan has amassed almost the entire line of Generation 1 figures that came out during the 1984 - 1987 timespan.
The TFormers community is home to all sorts of fans and collectors. Anyone who's spent much time in the forums have come to know Sami as gregarious member who is good with a kitbash and has amassed a very formidable collection of Transformers that will make any fan jealous. That makes Sami's collection the collection of the week! Take a look at her collection in the image gallery
Collectors' Corner is kicking off of the weekly edition of "Collection of the Week." Every week, we will browse the collection section

figures ranging from all of the generations, American and Japanese.
In 2001, a coworker of mine thought it was interesting I knew so much about TFs he gave me Beast Machines Mirage for Christmas, and that's when I started to collect and try to gather the old ones I had. Some friends give me what they find in their attic every now and then. Read More
I love Transformers because: It's the part of being a child that I can keep hold of. It was important to me then and is equally important to me now! Plus really kick ass. Check out more info on Mally's collection here
I love Transformers because: They're simply awesome. Check out Gasket's collection here
They aren't just action figures, they are much more complicated and challenging and require some thought to figure out. They also have such a variety of shapes, sizes and gimmicks that it is possible to satisfy pretty much everyone tastes. Be it the simple, kiddie-toys from Armada, or the complicated and highly complex figures from the Alternators and Masterpiece lines, there is something for everyone. Read More
I love Transformers because: It was the last toy my dad got me. Upon cleaning my room, I came across Powermaster Optimus Prime and I saw Beast Wars on TV in its second season. Ever since then, I made it a goal to have all of the Primes/Primals. Read More
I started collecting Transformers because: Well I had a few Transformers when I was a kid, but I lost or broke them all by the time I was an adult. Then Beast Wars came out. I liked the show but I was never a huge fan of the toys. Then RID came out and that's when i started to collect again. Read More
I collected Transformers as a child growing up in the 80s, but started again in 2002 after a visit to Forbidden Planet in London. I recently (and very luckily!) received a gold version of WST G2 Slag, which is apparently only 1 of 10 in the world. I'd probably consider that to be the jewel in my collection, if only because of its rarity. As far as most-wanted, it's gotta be Fortress Maximus... I will eventually own one! Read More
I love Transformers because: it was my passion when I was a little boy in Brazil. We had G1 on Brazilian TV in the 80's and nothing else for a long time. My Transformers toys were dumped out of my apartment window by a little cousin, and for 20 years I missed every single bot! When I moved to the US, I saw an Alternator in a store and all those good feelings from my childhood came back instantly. Read More
