I finally joined shmax the other day. Over the course of a work day, I updated my collection on the site and was pleasantly surprised. Currently, I'm ranked #438! I was thinking if be around #900, but I guess my collection is bigger than I thought. Then again, I did add in figures that I don't count towards my goal of 400. Doubles and figures no longer on display, that sort of thing.
Speaking of the magic number of 400, my collection currently stands at 365, which is a decent number considering my narrow parameters, I suppose. With that in mind, I've decided to scrap my original plan of getting to 400. I'm now going to attempt to get every G1 figure I can to get a complete set. There may be some reissues or Encore figures (There already are quite a few), but there will not be any knockoffs. I figured that once I factor in the next wave of Generations and Masterpiece figures, I'll hit 400 before Christmas, and that makes me sad.
Masterpiece Sunstorm releases next month and I'm still torn about getting him. I've had him preordered since he was announced, but now I'm having doubts. I've always tended to just get figures that I like, which is why I never got MP Ultra Magnus, but I've never been fond of the Sunstorm character. I have the Ehobby release, but that was more because I love the Seeker mold. This will be a decision I'll most likely make at the last minute.
Ive been thinking about participating in the online fandom again. It's been years since I've really joined a forum or message board. I'm just not sure which forum to join. I still have an account at the AllSpark, so maybe I'll start there.
I really want a Headmaster. Guess its off to eBay...
