When I started buying TF's, it was basically when the movie line came out. I wasn't planning on buyint too many, just the ones I really loved from the movie, maybe 6 ot 7 TOTAL. Looking back, or while I was collecting other toy lines, I rememebr seeing all sorts of stuff on the shelves.... Alternators, Classics, a few remaining Cybertron things... none of it interested me... I just wanted a few movie figs. As time went on, my roomate started picking a few up. So he bought some, I bought others, and when combined, we had a decent looking collection. Then one day, he bought a figure I wanted too... can't remember which one. So we each got one. Them, I started looking back at his set, and there were more that I wanted.... the "completionist" complex bagan to grow. There was still that 1 walmart a few miles away that still had leftover Alts and Classics, so I got Alt. Prime and Classics Grimlock. Needless to say, by NOW I own almost 1 of everything movie related scout size and up (ebay is an evil temptress)... I have all the classics figures deluxe and up (except for 2 I'm still waiting for)... 5 Alternators, 3 Titaniums, 2 Masterpieces, ALL g1 looking Robot Hereos, a few customized figures, Supreme Cybertron Starscream, All the Universe line (still wont buy legends class), and the Animated line... and there seems to be no end in sight with all the cool things they have been previewing lately! EDIT: I forgot to mention.. i DO have 4 legends class figured i received as gifts) Fortunately, I seem to have a moderate amount of self control when it comes to repaints. If the repaint is a new character (Skywarp/Starscream).. I have a hard time saying no. Lockdown and Blazing Lockdown... I can resist a little better. Does it ever end??? Anyone else have a similar story?
