As the title states. I've been collecting TF's since the original release of BW. I lived through G1 but I was a kid so I wouldn't consider those figues as part of my collecting career. I thoroughly enjoyed collecting during the beast era and even RID (loved the moulds). Once A/E/C hit I still collected feverishly but more out of completeness than as a fan. Along comes TF:A. After many many years of collecting but not enjoying it, it all came back in a rush. I was once again excited about a series and took total joy about collecting again. I wanted every figure on screen to be made into a toy. I wanted every figure made of this series, not because I wanted to complete a collection but because I wanted the figures. With the end of TF:A I feel cheated out of a potential few dozen figures that could have and would have been made given the time. All and all this experience really left a bad flavor in my mouth. Or one that was so great nothing else compares. All in all for the first time ever I have not collected a series right off the bat (TF:ROTF) and I know it has to do with losing Animated. So my direct question. Who else is put off by ROTF because of what TF:A offered us?
