I've been an avid collector since 2001. I grew up with the figures (1984 - 1987) and was hooked on the reissues almost from the start. Although the reissues ruined the "value" of my boxed originals, I got over it and started chasing all of them down. e-Hobby, Japanese exclusives, TRU, Takara's, TFC's ... My love for G1 spawned onto other lines, naturally. Most recently, the Movie figures. Around June or July last year, I was at a TRU on the launch day. I then went to Target and Wal-Mart in hopes of finding even more. What I came away with was an Optimus Prime, Megatron, and a few deluxes. Yay, awesome. Fast forward to today ... Encores and Movie "Premium" figures. Encore is re-releasing reissues. "Premiums" make 8 month old toys look bad. Instead of giving the fans something new, instead of making something for the people ... Hasbro and TomyTakara have done nothing but made me question my previous purchases. I'm constantly second guessing any TF I buy ... and now I'm on the brink of saying "f it all ... I'm done." Anyone else like this?
