    Do you collect figures of characters that are only onscreen characters? like for example not getting RID hot shot cause he is not in the show and going for a on screen character instead just wondering what everyone's thought on that is

    I almost never buy off screen characters. I only make an exception when it's an extremely cool figure in it's own right, like HFTD Breacher.

    Actually, Hot Shot was in the show. Someone like Bruticus or Cryotek are good examples for what you're getting at here.

    As for me personally, I buy both on-screen and off-screen characters. It really depends on who they are, how they would fit into my collection as a whole, and whether or not I like how the toy itself looks. Whether or not they were on-screen rarely comes up in my decision making process when it comes to Transformers.

    No. And for all we know, Hot Shot, Ironhide, Kup and everyone else will eventually make it onto the show.

    Than you should have said Prime RID Hot Shot, or left the RID moniker out of it entirely.

    Both. they do amazing things when they can be creative on the design. See HFTD Terradive.

    As a compromise, say PRID.

    Pretty much only onscreen characters, yes. I have no interest at all in random character repaints that mean nothing to anything.

    Yeah, I never bother with characters that aren't in a comic or cartoon or something. To me, ROTF Bludgeon counts as G1 Bludgeon etc. I'm getting Prime Ironhide regardless of if he's on the show or not just cause he's Ironhide.

    Yes, for the most part.
    I do buy the occasional bot purely on looks, movie Longarm for example, or to put out in place of a screen/comic bot that doesn't have a decent toy, but for the most part my interest has always been toys of characters rather than toy robots.

    I'll buy characters that were never in a show if the figure is really good, but even then I'm pretty picky about it.

    Since Hot Shot didn't have an FE, let's not.

    I buy any off-screen figure that I like the look of. Since I like to make up my own TF stories and plan stop-motion movies (that unfortunately rarely get made...), I don't care much whether a character has appeared in any official fiction or not. I've also made up several fan characters that I'm planning to do as customs.

    If you want to, you can. If you don't, then don't.
