Have any of you ever kept note of when your collection has reached certain numerical milestones? Or maybe on an auspicious date. For example, which was your 100th or 1000th Transformer? Any other noteable numbers? I can't remember exactly when, but I think I reached my 100th Transformer around 1993 -- give or take a year. No idea who it was. My 1000th Transformer whizzed by me... I should've taken note, but unfortunately I didn't - so don't know who that was either. Join the Discussion Now
There have only been 3 instances where I've bothered to take note, and that was because I was prepared before I hit those numbers. In 2004 my collection was approaching 666, so I really wanted a major baddie as my 666th Transformer. My plan was to get Energon Megatron, but I remember when I'd past 660 Energon Megatron was nowhere in sight, but Energon Scorponok was out. I hit 665... kept waiting and waiting for Megatron to come out, but nothing. So I just gave up and settled for Energon Scorponok. He's big, nasty and evil... yeah, he'll do. :)
Then as June 6, 2006 (06-06-06) came along, I wanted another major baddie. But on that night I went to the shops and there were hardly any Decepticon toys out there which I didn't already have... the only one was Cybertron Sky Shadow, which I didn't really want to get cos I already had Cybertron Jetfire. But there was nothing else, so I got it. Then after I got home I read the bio -- gah! He's an undercover Autobot! Pah.
Last year as my collection was reaching 1337 I wanted to get some "nerdy" or "brainy" Transformer as my 1337th Transformer. But then my cousin went and gave me a big chunk of his old G1 collection... so my 1337th Transformer unexpectedly ended up being Fastlane! So if he ever appears in a photocomic I'm gonna make him a massively stupid nerd and have him speaking exclusively in 13375p34|< :P
