    I know there are a ton of threads on there about what you collect. Just curious if anyone else collects one specific character or toy?

    I'm big into Bumblebee and Cliffjumper. I have more of them than any other toy... even my Optimus Primes or Ultra Magnus.

    Who do you guys like?

    Naw, I dig 'em all. I have a few favorite characters, like Wheeljack and Ratchet, but they don't exactly get a lot of variant stuff. Just being a completist gets me practically all their incarnations.

    I loves me some Ultra Magnus. When the Classics 2-pack came out, I bought anyone's unwanted Magnus I could get my hands on. I've got a standing army of 12 so far. :3

    It wasn't really on purpose, but my largest figure collection is Optimus Prime:

    Movie Leader
    Move Voyager (Despite my loathing of the backpack on this mold)
    Fast Action Battler
    Galaxy Force (Leader Class)
    20th Anniversary DVD Prime
    Takara Encore
    Movie Legend
    Titanium RID
    Titanium War Within
    Classic Voyager
    Classic "Deluxe" (2-pack Ultimate Battle, looks like G1 if Optimus were retarded)
    Spy Changer

    I've only got about 65-ish Transformers, so as a percentage of my collection, that's pretty large.

    I would love me some G1 seekers...I have some reissue ones on the way. They're easily the best reason to get anything G1.

    Not a specific character, but I tend to love the more obscure characters (hence my screen-name). All the Masters from G1, Energon Slugslinger, Beast Wars Ramulus, etc

    I'm a wolf collector, as in I'm collecting all the unique wolf molds. Though I still plan to get most of the repaints, that little technicality there is how I excuse myself from having to buy the slightly-different Japanese versions, Botcon Exclusives, and Lucky Draw Black Sixshot and Clear Sixshot *shudders at the thought of what they cost*.

    Wish I had a picture of my collection together, but I don't. I do have BW Wolfang and Silverbolt, BM Quickstrike, GF Black Fangwolf, Classics Overbite, and Universe Silverbolt (autographed by Scott McNeil).

    No. I go out of my way to do the opposite. I don't like displaying more than one of the same character, or even more than one of the same mold. And I especially don't buy Primes unless I feel I have to - I don't have a MPOP, but I did get the Voyager from Classics and Movie Leader Prime.

    I will go for most, if not all of anything Soundwave as he's my favorite character. He's really the only character that I will go after different versions and variants of and not just mainline toys of. For example he's the only character I've really gone out of my way to collect like PVC version of, WST, RH, HH Bust etc... and stuff like that. Other TF characters I would not normally go after other toys like that as I pretty much just stick to mainline stuff.

    The only other character that I seem to build up an army of is Prime, but only because I think they seem to just do him so well every time and in every incarnation.

    With me I have to say it would also be prime, but close behind are skywarp, TC, starscream (always getting the seekers of eachs series if they do them), jazz, megs and bumblebee.

    but prime... jeez.... don`t know where to put all those primes XD

    Nah, I like 'em all. Though I'm more excited about a TF if it has something to do with Dinobots or Decepticon Jets.
