Which Transformer Will Win?

A little heavy on the electrons....
Only two days left for the poll on the right! Looks like Kickback is in the lead. You know, I never owned any of the insecticons. I'm not sure why. My mom probably thought they were gross. Ultra Magnus is the only figure on that list that I actually owned when I was little.

I added a little slideshow of the figures I've gotten so far. I take all my own pictures so what you see is what I got! I'm also adding other little things on the site so come back often to see what's new!

Topspin is in the house!

The first Transformer I ever owned.
So here's the Transformer that started it all. This was my very first figure. My dad bought it for me at Shopko when I was about 4 years old. So, I was very surprised when I opened my first present for my birthday this year and that's who was waiting inside. Joey swears she had no idea that it was the first one I owned and that it was just a very lucky guess!

He came complete with his gun, instructions, and decoder, and nothing is cut from his box. He doesn't have the bubble insert, but still displays just fine. I was very excited to see this. I almost immediately asked my wife after I opened it, "Did you know he has a twin call Twin Twist?" She said, "No, I did not."

Look below for more pictures of Topspin. And stay tuned for my next G1 Transformer, next Sunday!

Blame My Wife

This is my wife Joey and I. I'm wearing an X-Men shirt while enjoying escargot at a fine restaurant. They tasted like squishy pepperoni pizzas. As you can tell, I am very classy.

I like to blame my wife for all sorts of things. It's just so much easier than admitting I'm wrong. So, you can blame this post on my wife. Why? Because for my birthday she got me G1 Twin Twist and G1 Top Spin complete and in their boxes. You can also blame her for reigniting my interest in collecting again. Oh, I will be coming at this from a much safer and reserved approach for all of the swindlers out there. I have done a lot of research in fakes and knock-offs. That's what I've been spending the better part of this year doing is research, research, research.

So, it is with great pleasure to announce, I will be regularly posting again. I have two figures already lined up, and a figure I never got around to posting. I'll try to post some other things along the way and maybe some polls to suggest what figures I should start looking for. I have moved on from my bad ebay experience and now have my wife to blame, err...thank, for getting me going again.
