CSC dont have everything.
Ebay has many problems with fakes (or fake original - more or less they are rejects from CQ and resold).
Some CSC shops also sell fakes - if you dont have sharp eyes you might miss but some are blatantly so ugly you know it is fake.
If you are into the hobby check out http://forums.figurakuen.com :)

I collect mostly Transformers.

here is one quarter of my collection:




The other 3/4 are still in their boxes in my cupboard or shelves. I collect mostly vintage transformers or vintage re-issues by takara, buy them on ebay or through other collectors back than when yahoo auctions singapore was still around slowed down last year because camera stuff too poisonous:bsmilie: & I realise the Encore re-issues from Takara Tommy are like flooding the market & the plastic quality isnt that great as the vintage transformers from the 1980s.

Prob the more prominent one in the picture would be fortress maximus, most valuable transformer I have up till date & also, it is still the biggest transformer toy ever manufacturered.

The optiums prime I have on the left of the picture still MIB belonged to me when I was a kid, fantastic condition, still has the $59.90 tag from Diamaru!!!! Back than in 1980s, $59.90 was quite a sum for a kid like me! haha

hahaha! No way! Its damn hard to get one like that! It is actually not Star Sabre, it is Victory Saber coz Star Sabre I connected it together with Victory Sabre! I only left the rifle on display, kept the rest of the weapons, limited space at home la.

Am actually looking for Overlord from the Transformers: Super-God Masterforce series to accompany my Ginrai! Got a Black Ginrai & the orange Fire Guts Ginrai on my shelve!

Erm, some people keep for value purposes...

I used to open them up for display but after awhile, I just put all of them back in their boxes. These days when ever I get a new toy, I just use a clear plastic wrapper to wrap it up & keep it.

My reason being it is damn hard to clean lor, wa lau, the dust on the transformer's nook & cranny is no joke man, cleaning cameras also not so xiong! hahaha! I had to use one of my gf's spare blusher brush to brush the dust off :bsmilie:
Ya, so by keeping them in the boxes & wrapping it in plastic, it is much easier to clean, I can use a slightly damp cloth to wipe all the boxes! Easy & fast, anyway there is a plastic wrapping over the boxes, so dont have to worry about the damp cloth spoiling the cupboard of the box.

Here is some pics:

To those of you who remember 80s toys well, here is a MISB M.A.S.K. Rhino! Bruce Sato & Matt Tracker!
There is also a Starcom Shadow Bat in the picture complete with 2 Shadow Parasites & in the undercarriage of the Shadow bat, there is a vehicle, cant remember what is the name though...

Zig Ziggler: Paiseh ah, spam your thread so much but the talk of toys, I just cant help it. I used to buy so much toys back than!

Oh ya, anyone know where I can sell them? Was thinking of trimming down my collection, keeping the valuable ones & the not so valuable ones, was thinking of selling them off.

yea, I had to replace a few rusty screws on my vintage transformers....

Worst if the white plastic starts yellowing, cant do anything on that part, beyond help.
