Chico Comics Page: Collector’s Spotlight
Brian Rasor’s Transformers
Hi I’m Brian Rasor Twitter handle @Rasors_edge02. This is my transformer collection and yes I have an entire room in my house dedicated to it. I have been a fan of the Transformers since I was a young boy at a young age my parents began buying me the toys for my birthday and Christmas. As I got older I begin buying them myself and place them around my bedroom at home. As I was buying my first house I knew that I would need a place to put my collection.
Spotlight Figure 1 powermaster Joyride this figure was given to me by my parents it’s the first one I can remember them giving to me as a birthday or Christmas present it would have been in 1989 so I would have been 6 years old. Spotlight figure 2 G2 Laser Optimus Prime this was the first figure I ever bought with my own money it was 1993 so I would have been about 10. 25 years later the original batteries that came in the figure still work and it still lights up.
Over the last 25 years as I’ve built my collection I have tried to collect from every series and movie. There have been times where I was not able to buy figures and over the years I’ve tried to collect older ones I did not get as a child. Fun fact to increase my Beast Wars collection I once spent over $300 at a vintage toy store. I’m proud of my collection I always show it off when I have guests over and my wife brags about it.
