    Crusty Tbones collection - The old and the new

    Hi All,

    I've only been collecting seriously for the last few months but I originally started collecting the classics about 4 years ago.

    Here's my new vs old collection (links removed and embedded below).


    I intend to get the classic MIB an all the new MIB it just expensive and the timing for buying OS classics is probably not the best given the current success of the new show and elevated pricing? Am I right? I also need more shelf space.

    Let me know what you think.

    I like a lot the blend of Old and New Thundercats.:thumbsup: Also, your LJN Loose Figures look so great in these glass sheves! Very classy

    I wanted to ask which one do you think displays better MOC? the old or the New Figs?

    Take care, Keep up the great collection CrustyTbone!!

    The enormous Mumm-ra's crypt. I was shocked when it arrived and it was sooo big (I have the box but nowhere to display).

    Thanks Lordore it's early days for me yet but things are coming along nicely. I'm pleased - my wife isn't :D

    I really like how the new figures display. I think the artwork and packaging is pretty impressive. Even the Thundertank and ToO looks great. But having the old stuff boxed is of course something special and I'm excited to be growing that side of things also (slowly).

    Thanks for taking the time to look.

    Hi Everyone,

    It's been a while since I added to my collection but with the new series figures becoming hard to find. I wanted to add to my collection before it became virtually impossible.

    I'm chuffed to have the Grune Varient and the evil Lion-o in my collection.

    I love looking at everyone else's showcase they're all just amazing and recently I keep going back to Starcade to see what I'm missing - in my opinion has te best 2011 collection of any I've seen, I know about a year ago, Starcades the one that beat me to a few original series MOCs on ebay :). I'm hoping to pick up the US only 2011 figures like he has (next on my list).

    A few Series 2 collectors 6" figures

    Hope you enjoy looking. I'm out of money now for a while, so fingers crossed I can get a few US-2011 figures for Christmas from family members.
