Is it really worth that much?
I don't think this guy will make any more than 20K-25K on this collection. It's nice but in reality it's not worth that much to any collector. He has a waaaaay better chance of making good cash if he sold them individually. I would love to have that collection in that way, but it will never happen as long as I have a mortgage to keep a roof over my head.
What I really think is comical is this article written about it and the comments that these people make. They have NO idea what an obsession this is to most. Why do you think it's called "plastic crack!" Some people are just too stupid to understand... You never know until you have a hobby of your own!
Me? I'm a Transformaniac through and through. I've been collecting for over 20 years and my collection is starting to outgrow "The Vault"! I collect, maintain and refurbish my Transformers and I am always looking for new (and old) ones to add to my 900+ plus collection. Feel free to check out my collection, as it's ever-growing and I'll be updating my blog with new Transformers as soon as I get them.
