I bring this topic up because my friends think I'm scary (the movie "40 Year-Old Virgin" is mentioned quite a bit) - and all I collect is G1. I have a few Animated and Movie toys at work but they never see those (and there's only a handful anyway). I also have the G1 series on DVD and both the live and animated movies. That's it. A total of about 150 figures and some DVDs. In comparison to some I consider myself (for lack of a better word) an "amateur". My friends just don't get this. I'm wondering how much Transformers are a part of your life. Do you buy every single toy? Do you watch TF DVDs all the time? Do you constantly hunt for new TF videos online? I'm just wanting to provide some perspective so my friends undestand the levels that some collectors go to.
