    No, I was a Classics crackhead before Generations and Reveal the Shield.

    Yeah, a thousand times this. Although I am grateful that Generations/RTS is creating a whole new army of fellow Classics addicts.

    This for me too. I was addicted to the line ever since the pix were leaked of Classics Astrotrain about five years ago.

    Yea, I was doing things I am not proud of long ago to obtain my classics fix quite a while before RTS/generations. Strange thing is Grimlock is what got me going on buying classics, and I have never looked back. Glad I actually liked that (comparably) crappy figure, cause I would hate to be playing even more catchup right about now.

    I'm paying the price to catch up big time.

    Starcream,skywarp,ramjet and the 2007 botcon set got me totally hooked. Never looked back since. Reluctant at first but eventually bought them all.

    You're late to the party, sanchomaul. I was a crackhead as soon as I got Mirage and Astrotrain. Sorry, but you're just going to have to eat those inflated Classics prices.

    Yep.
    Before this, I just had hound, cyclonus, ironhide, acid storm... they were nice and all, but I wasn't rushing to ebay to get the rest, yknow?
    Then Generations came out, and now I'm putting all my money on a debit card so I can buy every one I can get my hands on.

    It actually did, but mostly because I didn't start collecting until the universe line ended. I'm hoping to see some other stuff in the Generations line soon though or I may start to get bored of the G1 updates... D:

    I kind of got sidetracked by Beast Wars and Animated, but once these lines came out I was right back to being a classics crackhead.

    I remember that. That was a good frigging day.

    Hell, even before classics i wanted the best updated version of a character. For example; Cybertron Blurr, Energon Ultra Magnus etc...

    I knew from the moment I saw mirage on the target pegs that the new transformers were epic

    I got in via Animated. Then found out about classics. I've got almost everything except a classics Ratchet.

    You also have to be very selective about Henkei vs. Hasbro when you do this. The great thing now, is that there are so many comparison photo galleries on TFW and Seibertron that you can really decide which version appeals to you more.

    My name is Exclusacon and I'm a plastic crackhead...
    I'm late, I didn't dive in until late 2008, lucky enought to get most of Universe @ retail.
    Generations/RTS just made my addiction worse. Movie toys now sucks, don't feel the same high...
    I may dabble into this dotm products, but nothing too major...Hasbro, these 3rd party got that good stuff....

    Between 2000 and 2010, I bought 1 TF, Alternator Nemesis Prime. Classics Prime and FansProject got me hooked back into collecting
