    Have you ever bought a transformer just to buy one? I mean you had everything that you wanted that was currently released but you were in the mood to get a new one since you hadn't gotten one in a little while , just curious

    Nope. If I was to ever randomly buy a TF I see, I'll make sure that it looks cool, and has an okay scale with what I have.

    Yup, it happens. I believe Guzzle was my last one like that.

    Oh yea, I've been guilty of that from time to time. Recently, lead me to find out how awesome Prime Cyberverse Commanders are when I picked up Prime Commander Optimus.

    Yes. Luckily, I've managed to sell off almost all those "desperate purchases."

    Yep, Skullgrin, bought him yesterday... I buy random ones all the time, as long as I like them..

    Lately I'm looking to get the G1 cast in the Classics form as well as fill out some of the Movie line I'm missing.

    However I can't turn down awesome looking transformers. Skullgrin was so worth it just for his Axe.

    I've made some clearance purchases like this, but those are few. I'm generally one who plans out what I want to get, etc.

    I've never bought a Transformer for the sake of buying a Transformer. I have bought Transformers for the sake of the good guys and bad guys being even, however. This usually involves Cyberverse figures because of the price.

    Also, no one will likely get it, but all I can think of when I read the title is "Have you ever? Ever felt like this? When strange things happen, are you going round the twist?"

    I try to avoid doing that. It usually happens with movie toys for me. I pick it up just for the hell of it, but then I get bored of it after a day and never touch it again

    No. If I pay for one, it'll be one that I want for one reason or another.

    I guess I've done this, but I generally don't buy anything unless I want it anyway, so... :)

    I'm basically only into Prime figures for now. None of the movie toys that I've seen are worth experimenting with, since they look bad in robot form (in my opinion). Mostly their heads/faces seem off.

    Something about the Prime line that works for me. I was going to get some Bot Shots, but after reading about the game codes that will be packaged with them later...I decided to hold off on them.
