... was more meaningful when it was smaller? I mean on one hand, when I only had a few of them (the ones from childhood + maybe the first couple I bought when the movies came out), they all had quite a lot of history behind them (be it on their own & as a whole), and mathematically speaking, they were more special to me than a larger percentage of figures (those being the ones I didn't own, or didn't care to own). This is probably what my dad was getting at when he brought up the subject a couple of weeks back (aka, when I came home with a bag of loot). However at the same time, I also think there's another side to this story, one being that as I make an active effort to grow my collection & keep it relevant in my life, I'm also growing their sentimental value with them. Along with that, I still have my favorites like Scorch & Dinobot, and no amount of new additions will change that, even if a couple of newer ones like Dark Skyfire make their presence well known. So in other words, how has your growth & progression in the fandom affected the sentimental worth of your collection?
