    #34,000 really isn't that much to have spent on a collection of anything.

    Damn it I miss my original Devastator. I think its time I got a new one.

    Hotter wife than I expected!

    Look at the defeat on that girl's face..

      That photo captured the exact moment she realized she has had a complete lemon.

    Thats great, spending his money on a passion... that isn't going to kill him.
    Beats wasting all your money on smokes and the likes.

    I Still have all of mine from when i was a kid!, not as nice as his, Mine are all "play worn"

      Eh, I like the original ones way better. All the new ones just look plastic fantastic.

    In the top left corner of the second photo there is an Optimus Prime I'd give my left nut for.

    Pretty sure there'd also be a gen 1 Grimlock I'd give my other nut for in there somewhere too.
