Your Collection and Numbers - What Was Your 100th or 1000th Transformer?
Goktimus Prime - Tuesday, April 19, 2011


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

I don't count the number of transformers I have, also I've been giving away a lot. I'm trying to just collect the classics universe generation reveal the shield or whatever they're calling it these days and the molds that fit from other lines.

I seem to remember the actual moments rather than the numbers. I don't technically count my TFs anymore, I let Shmax handle that for me.

Hmmm... memorable acquisitions: + 1987: I win Battletrap as a prize for a newspaper Transformers art competition (which I entered in 1986 - it was a newspaper promotional comp. for Transformers The Movie -- I'd completely forgotten about it when I got the prize for it nearly a year later! ... read more

I can't remember when I've hit a certain numbers. I do know who I have, how many are in my collection(1178), but what I really keep track of is who helps to add to my collection

I have around 3000 different pieces in my TF collection, but haven't been counting each figure or item. When it comes to ones that have particular memories here's a quick few. Powermaster Optimus Prime- I had really wanted this one. I had the copy of the Marvel G1 comic where OP became PMOP... read more

More Generation 1 News
Looks like the Autobot leader will be joining this year's Hallamark holiday tree ornaments offering this year. We knew about the Soundwave and Last Knight Hot Rod, but the addition of the Generation 1 styled Optimus Prime is a little bit of a surprise, literally. As this one seem to be scaled down a bit from the previous edition.
Imaginarium Art posted a new teaser to Facebook for a future statue project, keeping up a constant pace of releases under development. The newest subject of their attention? Why, none other than Galvatron! The silhouette is unmistakable, and it may imply an interesting display base. Galvatron's shadow is planted atop the shape of Cybertron, so the resulting display piece may itself be Galvatron standing atop the planet. Unknown right now when we'll see more out of this development, but the prototype stage ought to be interesting when they're ready to share it!
Imaginarium recently shared a shot of the upper body of their upcoming Devastator statue, showing off the general styling and detail level. Tonight they've continued downward, revealing the lower half of the body with a look at the legs and a considerable chunk of the base environment the statue stands on. Sadly these are not separate cuts of the same image in order to piece them back together - or I would have - but you can still get a good sense of the overall product between them. Click through for the mirrored image!
Three A, makers of high end - and high price - action figures including a range of licensed Transformers figures has revealed a new entry tonight, exclusive to ThinkGeek. Ultra Magnus is a redeco of the Optimus Prime figure, naturally in the unarmored cab-robot form. Its features are more or less the same as the Optimus figure it's derived from, including basic accessory loadout. ThinkGeek's price is just about $400 and they're accepting orders for the new Ultra Magnus right now. Click through to see the promo photos and a link to the product page.
Pop Culture Shock Collectibles is pleased to announce we have now secured a licensing agreement with Hasbro Inc. We are excited about the opportunity to team with Hasbro in creating collectibles based on characters from properties like TRANSFORMERS, DUNGEONS & DRAGONS, MAGIC: THE GATHERING, G.I. JOE and MY LITTLE PONY to name a few. Stay tuned for further details!
