It’s not everyday your family decides it’s time to upgrade to a bigger, more suitable home to raise a family in. I’m certain a typical adult would begin to worry about typical things in these kind of situations; finding the right realtor, cleaning the house to spectacular levels, and making sure your kids and dogs do not destroy your house any more than they already have.
As Transformers collectors, we all know we don’t deal with typical moving problems. Which brings me to why The G1 Journey has been somewhat in a slumber as of late – my collection is packed away.
Even with a little over 1,000 figures, I still consider my collection on the smaller side; I have seen collections that make mine look like a beginner’s start to Transformers. However, that doesn’t take away the sheer physical and mental exhaustion it took on me to bubble wrap and pack away nearly all of those 1,000 figures.
Each one of those beautiful, newly released Masterpiece figures, those 3rd Party figures … all packed away until me and the Mrs are moved into our new home … which is still at least 2 months away. Not only are my newer figures packed away, but all of those fabulous G1’s are as well ..
I had a lot of articles planned out, some in the works already. For now though, The Journey has probably slowed down a bit until I can get my collection unpacked. The good thing? I still have some great G1’s coming in that I’ll be able to write an article for … including one that’s like 2 feet tall.
With busy and demanding times there also comes great opportunities. I am very humbled and excited to now be a part of the TFSource blog team. In addition to always writing about the G1 figures I have come to love and admire, I’ll also be doing a lot of great articles/reviews for TFSource as well. Although it’s not focused on Generation 1, my first contribution to the blog is a string of articles titled “Countdown to BotCon.” I hope you can enjoy these as well as The G1 Journey.
As always, thank you for reading and the continued support! The G1’s will be back in no time!
