What Kind of Transformers Collector Are You?
Goktimus Prime - Tuesday, October 20, 2009


As collectors we do invest a lot of our hard earned money into this hobby. As individuals we have a diverse way of enjoying the toys that we buy. This poll thread is for the discussion of the different ways that we enjoy our hobby.

Disclaimer:

1. Remember that NO one collector type is really better or worse than the other. It all depends on your own personal set of values.

2. These collector types represent a spectrum. Many of us would probably identify with multiple categories - possibly all of them! However most of us will tend to predominantly identify ourselves with one category over the others. So look for the one category that you most strongly identify with.


The question I'd like to ask for the sake of discussion is why you are that kind of collector?

So here we go! - Read and Vote in the Forums Now!

I guess Im 3 of 4 can't be an currator as I open all my personal stuff. Very few things are unopened as I feel boxes are prisons. I only tinker on extras. I play with them for a few days then stand them up for the most part.

Mostly a Curator, but sometimes a Fiddler, but really wish I could be a Artisan

As for me I m a mix of the Fiddler and an Artisan, I love spending my leisure picking out a few figures and transforming them back and force while enjoying the unqiue ways of transitioning between the two or three forms. I'd also say I'm an Artisan, I've started improving my toys here an... read more

Sideshow and Prime 1 Studio are proud to present Ultra Magnus from Transformers: Generation 1. Designed by renowned artist Josh Nizzi, famous for his interpretation for the Transformers movies. Ultra Magnus is a white redecoration of G1 Optimus Prime and crafted with impressive attention to detail and features LED light-up eyes and stands approximately 24 inches tall. Read on for the full details and image.
Once again, Twitter user @miiakira2017 has posted an image of their Transformers-related design work. Today, it's a classic car- the specific make, if any, eludes RAC - that would have turned into a laser pistol-wielding cowboy. Though there's a slight resemblance to 2010's Hunt for the Decepticons Scout-class Hubcap, the replies peg this as a Diaclone-era design, so well before that figure was designed and likely a coincidence. Keep reading to see!
Hobby Lobby has had a few waves now of different kinds of Transformers art stamped in to sheet metal. A new offering in this line has just recently hit, bringing some new choices. We found today two pieces featuring G1 Optimus, and Bumblebee, represented in the design of the 2006 Classics toy, at Hobby Lobby. They were priced at $18.99 each, which may seem a touch steep for something the size of perhaps a small calendar. But we can't deny the art on them look really sharp. Click through for images of both!
D3+Transformers Racing Unveils New Race Car for 2018 Competition at Petit Le Mans! The brightly colored red, black and white race car with the large Transformers Autobot shield on the nose was impressive at the highly attended press conference at the final race of the IMSA 2017 season. Read on for more info!
The @miiakira2017 Twitter account continues to share G1 design work! Today, we've got some sketches for Octane, described here in a very British way as a "Tank Lorry"; artwork for a pair of folding launcher bays designed in the Diaclone Car Robots days, and what are described as figure studies for "erasers," but don't seem to match either the Decoys or the G1 erasers that were produced - at least the US ones. Keep reading to see the images!
