Recent Acquisitions - MISB Transformers Collections #0 Optimus Prime and #3 Skids

I picked these two guys up today. $185 for Prime; $31 for Skids.  Seems like a lot but this damn Optimus isn't cheap.  I've seen it going for anywhere between $200-$300.  I'll get into this later when I do a in-depth review on him but that's getting close to G1 boxed prices!

The box on top is the binder that comes with Optimus so that you can cut out the hole-punched books that comes with each Transformers Collection figure and put them all into one binder. (I don't know why anyone would want to do that though).

Anyway, I just wanted to get these up so stay tuned for an in-depth review shortly.

My Thoughts on Collecting.......

I search eBay.  I buy.  Package arrives.  I store it away.

I read and hear about a new MP.  I go to and I buy.  Package arrives.  I store it away.

I go to a convention and see a TF.  I buy it.  I store it away.

See a pattern here?  *sigh*

This has pretty much been the story since 2011 when I got back into collecting Transformers.  I know  some collectors out there will take one of two sides to this; either

Local TRU Shelves

So today was my last day to go in and get my 25% discount off of my Sandstorm since I had bought it 13 days ago.  Wasn't expecting much but I finally saw some new things at my local Toys R Us.  Here's the first thing that I saw and it wasn't even near the TF section.  It was sitting by itself right beside the Returns Counter.  Really weird.

It's a really shame that I'm not more into this figure otherwise I would have bought it a long

C-310E e-Hobby Exclusive Fire Guts GodGinrai

Have you ever bought a toy just for the name alone?

Well...this guy here did back in 2012 from a local dealer in Toronto for $300 MISB. Is it pricey?  Yes, but it has so much to offer as a toy that I think it's well worth it.  Recent searches on eBay have pulled up sold MIB ones for $300, and the latest one for sale MISB is going for $400.  Ideally, I think if you can grab this for a steal between $250 - $300 MISB then you are doing good.

So here he is.....

One big mutha' of a box.
So it was sometime back in 2012, slightly over a year since I got back into Transformers collecting, and I believe that I was just goofing around on Kijiji when I came across a

A Consumers Distributing Memory

So it's 1:34am and I'm here at work thinking about how I need to get another post up.  As cool as it might be to pull out a figure right now for a shoot, I'm not always in reach of me Transformers toys; though I have had my HeeroToys KO Bape Optimus in the back of my car for a few weeks now.

Autobot Ratchet Red Cross Variant......and Autobot Security: Ironhide

You'll get the reference for this later in this article.

This ending up being a rather impromptu photo shoot that happened to take place when I visited my friend "M" last Friday to drop off his half of the Red & Blue Browning KOs that we had ordered together.

The Autobot Security : Ironhide figure came from a purchase from a store near "M's" work for

Browning Destron M-1910 KO (Red & Blue versions)

The Brownings are here ! The Brownings are here !

I was extremely pleased at how fast and safely Aces Toys (click HERE for a link to their page) shipped these items to me.

Nice and safe for Mr. Browning...or should I say Brownings.
First before I get into the pics, here's a brief history on the Browning character:
