    i don't know about you, but do you sometimes get a figure that you feel is alive? what i mean by that is it feels that it has a personality. For instance, when i got classic prime, i wasn't into making an optimus figure a dick (cause g1 prime was one of my faves) and i just renamed him convoy and went on. well after playing with him a bit, out of no where i start in my games making him beat up his own men and blowing up anything that moved (lol) and i don't know where it came from.

    next patient: deluxe movie brawl. you would think he would get a crazy blow-everything-up personality when i play with him wouldn't ya? Nope, he got the personality of an intelligent medic.....and i don't know how it happened.

    and then there is cannonball, who is suppose to be a pirate right? wrong, he gets treated like shockwave more than his true colors (i blame the shockwave custom someone made using the mold)

    finally there is my 20th anniversary optimus prime, the one who oozes personality from him. when i hold him it feels i am holding an old friend. Before his legs broke (he can stand perfectly, as long as his feet are connected) he went everywhere with me. and sometimes, i might say something like, "hey prime, we got some new recruits" to him.....and no i am not crazy....i went to a mental hospital for some events and i got out in a day cause they said i did not need to be there (which i didn't)

    so any figures like mine?

    They're all real to me. I even "hear" them laugh and cheer sometimes. I know, I know, I need help. :lol

    lol, I get that same feeling too but from my 20th Anniversary Prime, so he's on a different shelf than the rest in honor of his "awsum". He exudes certain "I may be old school but I'll still kick your ass" quality, kinda like the dad from Dirty Work lol

    See, I was thinking of the current line of toys, but hell - if we're going as far as old school G1, then that materials list has to include rubber, metallic alloys, plastic and regular die-cast, not to mention paint.

    My Astrotrain ended up on the floor one time. I felt bad. I think he suicided off the shelf. Or a cat knocked him over. Emo A-train is emo.
