You know, looking back, it really grinds my gears that I blew off this line at first and missed out on the Roy and the Armored 1J....GRRRRR...Now they are so expensive to try to get...At least I got the rest of the line minus M&M upon release at retail pricing.

I have an extra HMR Roy if you need one. PM me if you're interested.

What the fokk? :shok: That's a mother fokking fokkload of fokking Fokkers! :good:

Arguably all of them. There is an example of every "chassis" that has ben released in there. I stopped at getting all of the color variants/releases of the same thing (There could be I think it's five Chunkies in there that are all a little different for example).

All I'm missing is a Sofubi which is impossible to find and a few obscure knock offs.

My one shot at being a completionist.

No negotiations needed cos confrontation doesn’t happen when both have their own space.. 🤪

EDIT:

Don't know why i didn't look in the Hall of Super Topics for the old "Display Your Collection" thread, but i just found it and thought i'd link it finally:

http://www.macrossworld.com/mwf/index.php?showtopic=18562&hl

Enjoy more collection pics!!

ORIGINAL POST:

I did some searching for a thread dedicated to just showing off entire Macross collections and displays and there were only a few threads with individuals posting only their collection. Or there were collection pics hidden in other threads about display cases or toy pictures. I love to see how people display their toys so here's a new thread where everyone can participate to share their collections.

This is a new dedicated thread for people to show off ONLY pictures of their Macross Collection Displays. You can post pictures of how you display them whether it's in a cabinet, glass displays, book cases, whole rooms, etc.

NO pictures of individual toys since there is already a thread for that. Lets see all our Macross collections in 1 place!

I'll start by showing off a section of my rearranged Macross toys in my custom detolf cabinet displays. I'm still working on rearranging the rest of the room so i'll post those later.

1/48 displays

I also recently purchased mini acrylic display signs so i can label my collection for fun. need to make them for the rest of my displays and i'll post them later.

This was my old display room circa summer 2009, but i'll post updated pics soon

[Warning: Trip down memory lane,  steam of consciousness,  long- ish post]

Man,  this was The thread,  The pictures, that drew me back into the rabbit hole of collecting. I was away cold turkey for over 8 + years... I was doing so well *sigh*

 

Before then I had collected loose g1 transformers off of feebay, 1/48 Yammies & 1st gen SOCs up until gx31 from feebay, and masterpiece TFs up until Sideswipe release. I had intended to get the Hound and Wheeljack releases,  but then I just stopped.  I told myself I didn't Need them. I was Free.  I was Cured!

 

On here,  I had been a long time semi- lurker, just enjoyed viewing people's photos and briefly skimming people's  opinions on their favorite macross series,  toys etc. As my collecting ways waned, my visits to here became less as well. Saved some, bought a house, got busier with work / life.

 

After 2016 I was off this chogokin grid completely. Transferred job sites, moved to different city completely,  sold my house by 2019. Got too busy with life-stuff. 

 

Then pandemic happens. And we're all having to shut in.  And fighting to find toilet paper,  and other actual life- saving stuff. And masks. Had to hoard TP and masks and lysol wipes.

And then slow easing of restrictions,  and then vaccines happened. We just might live! This isn't the zombie apocalypse (yet)!

And then I visit my old 'net stomping grounds, because y'know, still steering away from exposure to people. 

 

And look what I've missed: SOC DX releases. How much? $1k entrance fee for the voltes? Eff no.. Not for all TP in the world. Still want it though. 

 

But it's ok, I can just enjoy reading people's opinions.  And browse here periodically.  I don't Need these, yet. Missed DX valks too? It's ok... I mean,  what's the entrance fee $300, plus or minus some dollars...

 I... don't... need...

 

And then this thread. Because for some reason,  I've avoided looking in this whole time. I told my wife "look at this original poster's collection. I have less than 10% of his collection.  I do not have a problem. I am still Cured.  So pretty though. It's all so preeettyy...."

I still have my 1/48 yammies, in non climate controlled storage.  What's that? Yellowing? Oh. And some people's Yammies have joints with problems? Oh. But mine are in storage. In Hot, then Cold.  And Yellowing and Disintegrating. 

Fast forward a few months, Scorched Earth Toys review of Dx vs 1/48 Yamato. Dx is the new king

Eff me 😰😰😰 and my wallet. 

While I could have just gone with my fave Roy vf-1s only,  I was already several valks behind. And as they mentioned in the DX 1/48 thread, you intend to buy 1.... and you all know what happens. 

 

TLDR: I was Cured.  Then I fell off the wagon. 

 

When's the next PO night?

Welcome back to the fold @f-valk ; I can relate as I got "back" into Macross last summer during the pandemic lockdowns. It all started while I decided to re-watch Frontier ... so I know the feeling. 

"I keep trying to get out ... but they keep pulling me back in" - LOL

About 85% moved into the new house. The amount of toys I have is ridiculous. I think it’s time to check myself. I’ll try and post some pics of my “collection” taking up a lot of space in the basement. Ugh.  I never want to move again.
