I see metroplex and Omega Supreme next to each other - top shelf, just to the left of Jetfire.

I'll bring my G1 Wheeljack, Jazz, Mirage.

COOOL!!!!! i never new of the Decepticon duplicate! thats just JUST AWESOME!!!

anyway... as I just lurrrve the math -
Play time at Protoman's House wrote: No. Toys = 1700

If you play with one toy for 1 miunte it would require = 28.3 hours

If you play with one toy for 5 minutes it would require = 141.6 hours

So taking into account 8 hours sleep, 1.5 hours feeding and 30 minutes other - (10 hours)

you would have 14 hours per day to play... ironically it would take a little over 2 days to play with each toy for 60 seconds, however it would take you over 10 days to play with each toy for 5 minutes.

Personally I could spend 20 minutes playing with just Omega Supreme!!!
@Protoman

Clearly you need help from sympathetic fellow retr0-Gamers to get the most out of you transformer collection >:)

I do have Metroplex. Look at Jetfire, Metroplex is 2 figures to the left of him (between Omega Supreme and Power Master Optimus Prime)

Metroplex had a few different names but not in America. (Like Japan called him Metroflex)

Not too bad those youtube clips.

I've always liked these ones:

As for the new movies - the story is unforgivably censored, and its a waste of a licence, but I like the designs and its a typical michael bay visual spectacle - so at least it looks good.

I was a big fan of the Transformers when I was a kid: I loved the cartoon and had about 20 or so of the G1 toys. I still get the very occasional TF toy, though I must admit my interest in them has waned quite a bit over the last couple of years.
Oh BTW, my handle SpeedBreaker was taken from Japan's Transformers: Car Robots series.

Star Saber, G1 Jetfire. Ahh i want them. I used to collect TF a few years ago, but my economy can't handle both video games and TF, it's just not possible. But TF is sill close to my heart, and it's always great to see other peeps collections. Great one mate.

If i could have one TF item in the world, i'd easily go with:

You've probably seen it, but maybe some other dudes here haven't. IMO, the best custom TF ever. I drool everytime i see this vid.

Trypticon (The Decepticon City) and Minerva (Interest that you call her Menelba, that's her Japanese box name, cool). I have Trypticon, but not Minerva. I wish I had her.
