Let me say I love G1 almost exclusively. My entire collection is G1 or homage to it with the Classics/Universe/Generations I have. Exception being 2 count them 2 movie figures, Banzaitron and Bludgeon. I do not understand the whole Diaclone thing or the fascination with red toe variants or tracking down the unheard of blue/magnetic yellow/fluorescent minibot? Not making a mean spiritied thread, it's an honest question I have had for a long time. The Diaclone thing would make sense to me since I know some members were old enough and did have them pre TF. I've always been trying to understand the love for some of these guys when they are not Transformers. Same goes for the weird variants and the like, the vast majority bear little look wise to what we got in the cartoon or comic. In the end, it might be just me, but let me know what you guys and gals are thinking when u pick them up for your collection? I sometimes feel like I'm missing something because I have not had the slightest inkling to go after any of these guys.
