    Just curious to know. Transformers are the only toys I collect. For one, they are the coolest toys ever. Two, I probably cant afford to collect outside of Transformers. And 3, I have 4 kids so any other cool toy lines are for them (They/I/We really dig the new stylized look the TMNT stuff based on the recent movie which I thought was pretty damn cool!)

    I REALLY wished ThunderCats would get some stylized toy love for the new millenium! At least just the main cast. Great toon, great characters... can make for a nice toy line... And I want a damned Sword of Omens!

    I wouldnt mind a re-launch of Exo-squad too! (Anyone still have their transforming J.T. Marsh motorcycle Exo-suit??? That was awesome!)

    What about you all? are you an exclusive TF collect, or do you put your eggs in multiple baskets? What lines do you dish out for?

    Also, what toy line would you be excited about returning???

    Not me, my Daleks are my priority collection. And Dr Who's relaunch has given me some pretty sweet figures.
    But that said, I probably have more tfs, as for every dalek that comes out about 10 transformers do.

    So far Transformers are the only thing I collect. Used to collect some different cards, but have since given them up. I'd like to start a small collectiong of Venom figures. Hopefully with the Venom movie, I might be able to get a start on that. Also, a small collection of Chess sets would be nice. I'm not any good at playing chess, but I do have fun playing it. On a side note, all my friends don't understand how I can play a game (say a video game for example), and not really care about how well I do while playing the game.

    Edit: Just remembered, I do have a small Coca-Cola collection, consisting of 6 6packs, and some other items.

    I've collected other things over the years, but only briefly, and I always come back to Transformers.

    Just TFs for me, there's no way I could afford to collect anything else, I can barely keep up with TFs as is.

    Though if I did hypothetically have the money, I'd love to collect LEGOs.
