I've decided to further narrow my collection. I was mostly collecting G1 and Classics figures. However, I'm a sucker for realistic alt modes. It's what I loved about G1, it's what drew me back in during RID, and it's why I actually like the movie toys. I'm really enjoying the Prime cartoon and like the looks of those toys too. However, 4 different lines are gonna be too much. I like to keep my collection small and streamlined. So I've got to decide what to do. G1 is definitely staying. Right now, I'm leaning towards having representations of the characters I like in the fiction more than anything. I'll get rid of all my classics as I'll have the G1 toys to represent the characters from G1. I'll buy one toy of each Prime character. So the help I need is with movie toys. I can't decide which ones to keep/buy of each character. On one hand, I really like the leader and HA figures. RotF Prime and Leader Starscream are like masterpieces. Ironhide and all the HA look really good on the shelf with them. Problem is, I'd never get the whole cast in those lines as we'll never see a leader Ratchet, Blackout, or Bonecrusher. DotM Megatron and Shockwave are just rumors at this point. On the other hand, I can get everyone in relatively close scale if I go with Voyager and Deluxe. There just is no Jetfire in that size. For this option, I need your opinion on what is the best version to get of each character. Based on alt mode accuracy, detail and accuracy of the bot mode, and relative scale. For example: Voyager Ratchet will go better with the deluxes, but might be too large next to Battle Blades Prime. The deluxe is a better mold IMO, but is a bit small next to deluxe Bumblebee. I could throw in a few leaders so Prime is bigger than the voyager autobots, but there is no Leader DotM Megatron yet, so I almost have to go Voyager only so the big baddies match up. Should I use Voyager Ironhide and Ratchet and have them too big with Prime, or go with the deluxes but have them too small with BB and the rest? How will I decide? I'm going to list all the characters from each movie, and the top choices for those. Please copy and past the list, and highlight the one you think I should use to represent the character. If you think there is a better option, add it and tell me why you think it's better than what I have listed.
