OKC Part 4 - in which we peer at the right side of the main shelf

Now, we look at the right hand side of the 2 'main' shelves. The picture below summarises what they look like when standing from afar. The arrangement has gone through many iterations, and this set of photos merely show the latest iteration. heh.

I have subconsciously marked this side of the shelf as 'Decepticon territory', for Decepticon figures, mostly. However, the topmost part of the shelf quickly dispels that demarcation.

Here we see USA boxed examples of key Autobots - (top) pre-rub Prowl MIB, Pointblank MIB unused, Hardhead MIB; (bottom) Optimus Prime (blue version) and Ultra Magnus (variant plastic wheels version). It's interesting to note that the Prime and Magnus boxes are exactly the same hight and size! Who would have thought.

NB: Sometime today (3 March 2013), a blue version Prime that is MISB, not too much unlike the one pictured, actually sold on eBay for US$1999! Shocking. Really. Shocking. (link here http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/261178482819?ssPageName=STRK%3AMEWAX%3AIT&_trksid=p3984.m1423.l2649)

This is the second layer from the top, mostly Japanese boxed TFs. There are actually about 5-6 giftsets at the back of this layer and not featured here! This is its previous incarnation, which I liked a lot, but then I shifted Apeface and Snapdragon over to the shelf on the right with the featured pieces, so ended up rearranging this shelf.

Previously, it has all the dino-cassettes (Autobot and Decepticon), the Japanese exclusive Godmaster figures, USA boxed Decepticon Targetmaster - Tiggerhappy, Slugslinger and Misfire, D-99: Apeface, D-100: Snapdragon and D-101: Soundblaster (hey, that's consecutive numbering!).
