    I used to obsessively collect TF figures, but then I lost interest and eBayed them off.

    I wish I could run across someone like that and buy them privately....

    Here are pics of my "Toy Room" I just took. I just got some new Energon TF stuff. I also have alot of Star Wars but I need to put up more shelves and fix some sheet rock to put those up. I also have some old mirrored closet doors I will be cutting and then placing mirrors behind the brackets and shelves later.

    Where did you pick up the two pack? I haven't seen those at any of the stores around here

    I've recently started picking up Marvel Legends. I've only got about 15 or 20 right now though

    the line after that, the bring on the villains one is out too, I believe

    The Giant Man one is a walmart exclusive and you have to get ten figures to complete him...and one of them is a variant :ugh:

    In conclusion: Walmart Sucks

    i don't care about giant man, I don't have the money to spend 100 bucks on figures.

    I just want that thor one, and I want to walk into a walmart tomorrow and get him.

    if anyone wants a specific one they have them all at our Walmart (I think it was $8.87 each) and they had all the varients too..... I almost picked them all up but you HAd to get both Weapon X's to completely make Giant Man

    I also have the X-men in original yellow and black outfits that came in a set, I got the X-men set from Giant Size also. I got the Alpha Flight set, I got that first Cap and Spidey that came out, I also got that first Avengers set with the GREAT Thor. I will say that new Wal Mart one was the reason I was looking at buying the set but come on... Giant Man? Just didnt flip my trigger....

    Yeah that is my "Crown Jewel" It has every single peice and its instructions and filecard, no yellowing at all either.

    I mainly get the combiner and "big" ones but I will not turn down pretty much any Gen 1 that is 100% complete.

    Something about die cast metal....
