    1. What is your most expensive Transformer? Aveo Swerve

    2. What is your favorite Transformer? Beats me.

    3. What was the first Transformer got that you still have? As far as I know, Movie Incinerator, though my mom thinks that we might have a few G2 figures in a box somewhere.

    4. What is your Transformer "Grail"? Black ROTF Prime. Looks awesome, but I doubt I'm going to get around to getting it until 2012 or after.

    5. Which transformer in your collection is your least favorite? Probably Armada Side Swipe

    Either Powered Commander or Buster Prime/Jetfire

    No idea, but I've got a top 5.

    1. Three-way tie between Beast Wars 10th 2-pack Optimus Primal/MP Skywarp, and probably Buster Prime/Jetfire (haven't even taken him out of his TFSource box, but the pics I've seen look awesome)
    2. Powered Commander
    3. Animated Arcee/ROTF Bludgeon
    4. Classics Cyclonus
    5. Animated Shockwave

    Armada Optimus Prime.

    Depends, the one I had acquired, or the one I really want?

    The one I had acquired was Buster Prime/Jetfire, the one I really want is Green LD Unicron.

    Purple Shockwave from Animated. Floppy mess, horrible QC, missing a screw, piece of garbage. I also hate Movie 1 Leader Megatron.

    1. What is your most expensive Transformer? Boxed 99% Complete G1 Fortress Maximus

    2. What is your favorite Transformer? Right now, RotF Brawn. That's more of a nostalgia thing though. G1 Brawn was my first TF ever.

    3. What was the first Transformer got that you still have? G1 Hoist

    4. What is your Transformer "Grail"? Complete G1 US Collection or a Lucky Draw of some sort

    5. Which transformer in your collection is your least favorite? Beast Machines Megatron. He hides in shame in the back.

    1. What is your most expensive Transformer? "Worth the most" would be Botcon 2008 Rodimus, but "paid the most" would be Hasbro's MP Starscream. Not a big fan of expensive Transformers, but I do have numerous Brave figures that come close to the $100 mark (Great Fighbird and DX GGG with Goldy), a Yamato 1/60v2 VF-1J Max, and a Great Goldran (also from Brave) topping the charts at $175 paid out of pocket.

    2. What is your favorite Transformer? ROTF Bludgeon or BW Quickstrike? Maybe Alternity Convoy. The standouts are more from the expensive list.

    3. What was the first Transformer got that you still have? BW Tigatron or Armordillo, I don't remember... I think I got them the same week.

    4. What is your Transformer "Grail"? Maybe MP Grimlock? I have other big/rare things I'm searching for, but none of them live in Transformers-land.

    5. Which transformer in your collection is your least favorite? I'd say ROTF 2-pack Cannon Bumblebee, but that's too hilariously pathetic. With the advent of the internet, it's become a lot easier to just sell the ones I don't like.

    1. What is your most expensive Transformer?

    MP Megatron + Mod Upgrade Kit

    2. What is your favorite Transformer?

    Hmmm That's a tough one. I have always had a soft spot for Thundercracker though because he was one of my favs as a kid.

    3. What was the first Transformer got that you still have?

    I have ALL the ones I ever got. My first 3 were: G1 Optimus Prime, G1 Jazz and G1 Thundercracker. I got them on Christmas morning in 1984 (or '85...I don't remember if they were actually released in time for Xmas 1984). Out of my original collection, I only lost ONE of Wheeljack's missiles...

    4. What is your Transformer "Grail"?

    Tough call. Probably a MISB G1 Shockwave, after I complete the MP Series...

    5. Which transformer in your collection is your least favorite?

    A Tossup: Classics Galvatron or G1 Rodimus Prime. Galvatron is too small and too "cheap". Rodimus Prime, like much of the Animated Movie line, was just phoned in. He does look really cool in Vehicle mode though.

    3. What was the first Transformer got that you still have? G1 Bombshell

    4. What is your Transformer "Grail"? Forget grails I'd just like to go to Botcon for once. Anyone wanna buy a kidney?

    5. Which transformer in your collection is your least favorite? Cybertron Undermine. Fugly!

    1. Cybertron Optimus Prime

    2. Cybertron Evac, RoTF Bludgeon, Animated Shockwave, and Classics Jetfire all tie for favorite.

    3. A headless Optimal Optimus :cry 

    4. I guess Dark Scoroponok since he's a repaint homage to a very rare Japanese toy. I could be wrong, though.
    The Grail I want is Masterpiece Grimlock

    5. Animated Blitzwing- What a disgrace to a great character

    1. What is your most expensive Transformer?
    Botcon '07 Box set. If we're just talking a single Transformer it's Fort Max. I overpaid for it for what I got but it had both headmasters which was not easy to find on eBay back when I bought mine.

    2. What is your favorite Transformer?
    MP Grimlock

    3. What was the first Transformer got that you still have?
    G1 Prowl. Broke to hell and back but I've still got it!

    4. What is your Transformer "Grail"?
    Japanese Dinocassettes. I still need to get all of the Japanese exclusive G1's actually....

    5. Which transformer in your collection is your least favorite
    Armada Sideways, Most Titaniums, Most of Animated.

    1. What is your most expensive Transformer?

    Fortress Maximus

    2. What is your favorite Transformer?

    Currently, ROTF DLX Sideswipe. He just looks so damn good.

    3. What was the first Transformer got that you still have?

    Beachcomber(Power Master Prime doesn't count, had to rebuy him)

    4. What is your Transformer "Grail"?

    Probably Powermaster Prime, he was my first TF.

    5. Which transformer in your collection is your least favorite?

    I really don't know...I don't normally buy ones I don't like. None really jump out and scream "least favorite"

    Is this most expensive in terms of price paid? Or in terms of current value?

    The most I've ever paid for 1 Transformer was ~$160 for Ehobby City Guardian last year, though it has since dropped in price. However I've bought a few for less than that, that are now worth more than that: Fortress Maximus, Henkei Wildrider and BC'06 Megatron for example.

    Of course I could probably make a list of 50 or more that are favorites or just say "all of them", but I think questions like this are most interesting when you have to say one and only one favorite. So I'm still going to cheat(slightly) and say 5: G1 Bruticus

    G1 Huffer and Swoop

    Jusco translucent orange Wreckerhook and the chase Stealth Super Spychangers Ox & X-car

    Hmm... I guess right now I'm feeling buyer's remorse on ...*gasp*... City Commander. Regular TF-wise, Energon Starscream. I had high expectations based on G2 Smokescreen, but E.Screamer screws up the design in a number of ways.

    1. What is your most expensive Transformer?

    MP-04, which I sort of regret now.

    2. What is your favorite Transformer?

    It fluctuates, but currently I'd say it's a tie between Buster Prime, Henkei Prime and Classics Ultra Magnus -- the prior for its overwhelming awesome factor; the latter two for primarily their completeness vis-à-vis their accessories (Commander armors, G3 trailer, TFC-005, etc.)

    3. What was the first Transformer got that you still have?

    G2 Gobots, a childhood relic, in a storage bin somewhere.

    4. What is your Transformer "Grail"?

    If we're talking about grails in the mythical/unobtainable sense, I don't have one. There's really nothing outside of what's widely available that appeals to me, and I typically don't care for anything that's been produced prior to 2008.

    5. Which transformer in your collection is your least favorite?

    Battle Rollar. That guy is just awful.

    1. What is your most expensive Transformer? I think I paid the same for my Reissue Predaking and Ehobby Guardian. So I will say one of those two.

    2. What is your favorite Transformer? The ROTF Leader Prime mold.

    3. What was the first Transformer got that you still have? All of the ones from my childhood are long gone because my Mom gave all my toys away when I stopped playing with them. So I guess the few Armada figures in my collection are the ones I have had the longest since I started collecting, though technically I have figures that are older but I bought them later.

    4. What is your Transformer "Grail"? For me it is my G1 Prime reissue and my G1 DVD Matrix boxset. After all this toy and cartoon are what started my passion for this franchise in the first place. They may not be rare or valuable, but they have a lot of nostalgia for me.

    5. Which transformer in your collection is your least favorite? MP Starscream, the title used to belong to G1 hybrid Style Convoy, but he is no longer in my collection.

    1. What is your most expensive Transformer?
    Fort Max, mint complete in box. Best £60 I've ever spent. Maybe MIB Dinoforce collection.

    2. What is your favorite Transformer?
    So, so many. G1 Soundwave and tapes holds up real well.

    3. What was the first Transformer got that you still have?
    G1 Op Prime, been repaired a few times though.

    4. What is your Transformer "Grail"?

    Probably a MIB Raiden, or Overlord.

    5. Which transformer in your collection is your least favorite?
    So, so many. G1 Wreck-Gar is pretty bad. G1 Rodimus? The target masters? The Pretenders? The Ultra Mega Orgasmic Pretenders? The in-action Masters?
    Argh, edit, just remembered the horror that is Titanium Megatron. Shock horror!
