Ant's Collection - Pictorial and Tour

By Anthony Brucale

Like myself, many of you may have been affected by the big blackout this past August. I'm sure you all remember where you were when it happened. I was failing at taking a nap between job #1 and job #2, while rooting for a Red Sox loss on ESPN. Once without electricty, like many, I had to find a way to kill time and enjoy the evening.

While daylight still fluttered about, I decided to snap some photos of my TF collection, figuring I could use it in the next magazine. Many people often think that this entire archive is my collection. While a good portion of it is (I'd say roughly half, maybe a little less than that), the archive has been culled from the collections of a number of my good friends. Below are the photos of my collection and display as of mid-August 2003, my apologies if some are blurry.

The Main Display

My display is broken up into a few of sections. The main display and centerpiece of the room features 22 shelves, of figures, divided with the good guys (Autobots, Maximals, Guardians, etc.) on the left side of the display, the bad guys (Decepticons, Predacons, Renegades, etc.) on the right side of the display. I've kept the display in order, left to right, top to bottom, in the following tables.

Above the Computer

Above the computer, in the opposite corner of the room, there are two cornered shelves in which I keep more themed shelves. Formerly home to my Wreckers shelf, the one directly above the computer consists of a Universe theme, while the one on the wall to it's right features Japanese G1 recolors and Spy Changers

Two more shelves faces each other on opposite ends of the room, one above the closet, the other above the window.

Lastly, I keep a mix of figures on the now-unused CD displays on the left and right side of the window.

I hope you enjoyed this tour through my collection as more than I had sitting around looking for things to do during the blackout. Feel free to comment on what you see here on the TFU.INFO Forums!
