    I'm curious - do you guys only collect TFs, or are you into a whole bunch of stuff?

    Transformers is my big one, but I also collect Kamen Rider and Mugenbine toys out of Japan. There's also some smaller ones like Webdiver that I'll pick up in the right mood

    you're too quick for me, i didn't even have the poll up yet :D  did make me wonder if i shoud have mentioned Transforming figures vs. normal action figs and/or mecha.

    i did miss one important option though - that TFs might be a sideline for some of you. as always, feel free to elaborate in the comments if you're a hardcore gundam fan who just happens to like a couple of TF molds.

    I collect Imperial Guard for warhammer 40,000. When I was younger I had a massive Star Wars collection, but I let that go to focus on TF's.

    Between budget, other interests, time, and display space, there is no way I could collect anything else. This habbit already eats into enough of my finances and frustrates the hell out of me. More props to those that are dedicated, but I just don't have the patience to figure out/find the variant DCUC this or that, or GI Joe Snake Eyes with Black Timber, etc. It would be a full time job keeping up with all the lines as well as other interests, and would take a couple more full time jobs to afford them all.

    That and hookers arn't cheap.

    Well, Transformers is my love but I've been know to buy a few GI Joes from time to time. I've also been buying up vintage TMNT Foot Soldiers to go along with my NECA turtles since it doesn't seem like we will ever see the rest of the line.

    I love transformers, but I also like building kits, so I have a lot of gundam kits. And recently I'm addicted to 3.75'' movie 2 ironman figs, due to the tf drought.....

    I like Transformers most of all, but in the last couple of years I've really branched out. I've gone into Marvel Legends, DC Universe, Marvel 4" scale, Iron Man, Power Rangers/Sentai, Braves, LEGO, a few GI Joes, and some odds and ends here and there. Recently I've gotten some WWF figures even.

    Actually before Transformers I had a bunch of Starting Lineup and McFarlane Sportspicks, but I've really tailed off those, only getting a few here and there.

    I have 30 or so MOSC TMNTs.
    That will surely expand once I'm done with Tansformers.
    Once I get more space, I would love to get me some MIB NES games & controllers.

    Transformers are the only things I consistently collect, toywise. I tried to get into GI Joe but it didn't last very long. I have a few Star Wars toys (all the "Darths") and some Universal Monster toys, and I have a Voltron, but all of those things only have a small presence in here.

    I used to collect Lego Star Wars way back when... not to mention tons of Bionicles.

    I've been tempted by Gundams before but never bought any.

    Right now just Transformers.

    That's all I collect now, but I still have my modest TMNT and Playmates Star Trek collections. I bought the big GI Joe playset from the movie at deep clearance, but that's to display my robot heroes. Of course I haven't opened it yet...or many of the robot heroes......

    Mainly TFs. Star Wars to a lesser extent, and then anything else I happen to like (primarily a few favorite figures from movie lines).
