If you could give up 1 Transformers line that you collect, what would it be?

    I mainly collect G1, Animated, beast wars, and movie. if I would have to give one line up it would probably have to be the movie line. It's a great line and I love it, but it just doesn't seem to have the character in the toys that the other lines I collect do. It also has to do with the lack of characters. There are not many. This may change with the new movie though, and I can understand why the first movie didn't have that many vs. a cartoon series. mainly because a cartoon series has much more time to introduce more characters. Anyway, your turn.

    Titanium - I've got the whole darn line in a box, and I can't imagine ever pulling them out again for anything. Additionally, TFA is the first line in 25 years I have not collected at all, so I guess I already gave it up, so to speak.

    But yeah, Titanium's the big winner (or is it loser) here.

    My Alternators.

    Now now, before somebody throws a rock at me, It's not that I don't like the line, It's just that I hate the two toys I got (Ravage and Nemesis Sunstreaker(Dead End hah!))

    movie line, definitely.. its the only line from which i dont feel the urge to buy every figure.. i just contained myself to the on screen characters and suffered no temptation from other figures/repaints

    Energon. I'd miss Starscream and Shockblast like crazy, though.

    Movie. I only have 3 toys from that line, anyway. There's just something... not fun about them.

    I collect Animated and Movie line at the moment..and I have a couple of Classics/Universe..I'd probably give that one up because they aren't sold in my country anyway and they don't have my focus.

    If I had to pick between Animated and Movie..probably Movie, but I don't wanna choose!

    Animated. I have virtually every figure out thus far including activators.
    But as I move Onto my doubles of some figures the flaws become more obvious.

    Generally I collect every line except beast wars.

    I need Wheeljack and Blackout otherwise I may give up on finishing the animated line.

    Hybrid Style... oh no, wait, that's more like a line that got given up on. My mistake...

    If I had the will power I'd probably give up the Animated line. Most of those figs (bad paint apps, etc.) have been disappointments to me.

    For the immediate - movie. For long-term, even though I love them - Animated. Five years down the road, they will not have the luxury of somewhat fitting in with the rest of the toys.

    Movie. Every figure I've bought from that line (Except Voyager Prime, because I collect various interpretations of Prime) I have later regretted buying. Like someone else said, the characters from that line just lack any real character IMO.

    Robot Heroes. I only seem to pick them up when there's nothing else to buy. I like them but could take em or leave em.

    I don't think the movie line displays as well as it should...
    As for Animated... I love Animated, but I do get a tad embarrassed when people see them :eek:
