does your "collection count" only include transformers?

    quite simple. in your public profile, do you count your entire toy collection, or just your transformers? there's a bunch of people with 1000+ listed, and I'm just wondering if that's really ONLY TRANSFORMERS. not cuz I'm looking to chop e-penises, I'd just really be shocked if there's that many of us with that many. aside from some of the people with near-complete collections, I was wondering how people dealt with so many toys.

    I only count Transformers stuff. That's why I have a small collection count. I don't have that many, and I don't plan on having a huge collection in the end anyways. Other than normal TF's, I also count statues and customs. Peace out.

    Only TFs, but it includes PVC figures, individual micromasters and minicons, and then I do just have that many.

    I only count Transformers. Minicons only count if they are in teams. I count Nebulans, Minicons that come with TFs, and so on in with the TF, not separately. I don't count PVCs, Kabayas or anything like that either.

    Officially, yes, only my Transformers count in my collection count... but lately I've had people not in the know see my collection which also has Webdivers displayed, in such case I include them too to save on explanation.

    My collection count says 100+, and by that I have about 120 give or take. What I count though is ONLY full transformers that are either basic or above for normal lines, or full transformers from non main lines like 3" titaniums or Heroes of Cybertron.

    I don't include any knockoffs, minicons (unless it's a full team), nebuelons, or any toy that's non TF. I know plenty of people here have huge collections that dwarf mine, but I was also suspicious that there were a lot of people "padding" there numbers by including what I just mentioned. I suppose it's fair though, as long as they are TF and not other lines.

    I have collected many things over the years and I think that I just included my transformers.

    If I included everything It would likly be over 1000. (starwars, gijoe, spawn, gundam, etc...)

    Only TF's, but I dont collect much else anyway so it would't make much of a difference if I did regardless.

    I'm just odd that way. They are individual transformers, so if people want to include them in their counts, that's fine. I never really wanted to be a completist, and I'm not out to get a huge collection comparable to a lot of collections I see here, so I don't feel the need to count every single one, big or small. For those out to get all of one line or another (or all lines), I see it being a bit more important to count them all.
