Chat/Discussion Kind of like a VW club online - you can sit in our virtual pub and talk about whatever you want to. All opinions are valid, but please no insulting (other than to our intelligence,) abusive or libellous posts. Please feel free to post your opinion on any given subject, but also be aware that others have the equal right to disagree with you - and some will certainly tell you so. No 'For Sale' or 'Want To Buy' ads, plugs for your business, links to 'for sale' ads or Ebay links to your (or your mate's) auction (please use the VZi 'Classifieds' section) - this also includes thinly veiled "What's my car worth?" threads too (please use the 'Dude! What's My Car Worth?' forum) - and please don't use just to post links to other VW forums or websites - we are aware that other sites exist (obviously), but blatant 'plugs' (poaching) will simply be deleted.

Great thread. My collection is mainly in the loft so no pics, but great to see I'm not alone.
I still have my powertrak race and chase set that I bought with my birthday money 😁 and my first scalextric set from 1974.

Easier said than done sadly. We live in a chalet bungalow, so 'the loft' is the crawl space in the eaves. With only one access point, it means emptying everything out 😂. I'll give it a go, maybe send a small child in Victorian style. 😈

Right, as requested. I grabbed a large shoebox that was near the door, as it's mainly this year's haul, apart from a few that were in a display case I got rid of recently.




They are in no particular order btw.











I probably have another 3 boxes like this. 😲

I'm still working through cataloging and archiving my Tramsformers collection for insurance purposes and to make sure they are properly protected in storage. As you can see I've done quite a few already (believe it or not there are over 200 in these boxes already):



A lot are mine from being a kid but I also used to go to car boot sales as a kid and buy others, so condition and completeness can vary, from my mint in box Megatron:



To some incomplete or even partially damaged:



Original 1985 Thrust:



Grimlock and Motormaster (I'm hoping to find their accessories as I dig deeper):



4 of 5 Terrorcons:



Still digging through so hoping to complete a few more as I do:





I'll post more up as I keep working through
