About Me :

Sadly, my collection is mostly packed up at the moment, but once I have a better area for display I will have pictures!

Transformers: Beast Wars was on TV when I was around 4 or 5, and I bought a good amount of the toys at the time. But my interest in Transformers really faded for a long while after Beast Wars, as I did not watch the shows and only picked up a couple of figures each year.

The arrival of the Movie line is a big part of what sparked my interest in Transformers again, and I went nuts! My house filled up with tons of Transformers from many different eras. I think I like my Cybertron stuff the most, followed closely by the Movie line, but it's not an easy decision to make. Animated is pretty cool so far, as are the new Universe/Classics toys.

My interest in toys didn't stray very far at all from Transformers until I discovered CollectionDX. I was looking for pictures of an Evangelion Unit-01 Revoltech, and found JoshB's review! That became my first Revoltech, which now stands among a small handful of others.

CDX was also the very first place I ever heard of "Soul of Chogokin". I bought Baikanfu as my first entry into the line, followed later by Evangelion Unit-03.

Sadly, those are currently (October 13, 2008) the only SoC's I own, but I do have two SoC Spec pieces; Evangelion Unit-00' and Black Sarena. In terms of other gokin, I also have everyone's favorite CM's GoShogun, and CM's Genesic GaoGaiGar. I'd have a lot more, but I'm just a kid with no job and don't have much of an income!

One thing about me is that I don't have to have a connection to a character or series to buy a toy. Black Sarena, GoShogun, and GGGG are perfect examples. I bought those pieces because they simply looked like fun toys.

I wasn't always like this, but, I really like die-cast. The discovery of CDX and all the awesome metal toys there are out there got me hooked on the stuff. Transformable figures are, of course, typically more desirable than others but not a necessity.

Well, not sure what else to say until I can get some pictures up. Stay tuned!
