King Benny's Collection

05Jan2013 Update! Everything has been changed for the New Year!

About me:
I have been collecting since 2009. My primary focus is on characters that made cartoon appearances from 1984-1986 (the Transformer glory years of my youth).
However, I have dabbled into the Transformers Prime lines too.

Old (2011):

This living room setup was spacious and clean. The lighting was great and it really impressed in photos.
However, being so open, it did not feel like my own personal space.
So, I made the hard decision to move everything to the much smaller den downstairs.

Old (2012):

The den which is also the home office is very small in square footage. After the collection was moved in, it definitely felt like "MY" space.
However, it was pretty tight in there with the over sized office furniture. The carebear yellow wall paint didn't help things either.

New (January 2013):
The collection is still in the den which is a challenge due to space concerns. But I have made a number of updates which include:
- Repainted the walls to a more masculine colour
- Added frames to the posters
- Reduced clutter by splitting apart the 4 detolf cabinets into two on each wall
- Got rid of the old office furniture and replaced it with a corner desk/chair that compliments the room in both size and colour
- And of course, added more Bots to the collection!

The room (January 2013):

Thanks. Yeah, I've spent some serious coin over the last year and a half. Probably could have paced things a little slower, but I was just so overwhelmed and felt so far behind with all this TF goodness.

I started collecting by fluke.. just walked by Ages 3+ Up retail store and saw a Revoltech of Starscream (favourite character). I purchased it immediately. I wasn't even aware these things existed. Shortly after I started doing some research, discovered more G1 inspired lines and the rest is history!
