    What mold keeps you spending money on it? For me,the classic Seeker mold.Once you count the imports and all the retail releases,i've put close to $500 just on that 1 mold alone.....its a sickness,i know. What say you?

    I haven't done the exact math, but I'm guessing for me it's either Masterpiece, Classics, or G1 Prime.

    Probably the classics/Henkei Seeker mold due to the clear and other exclusives, plus endless repaints.
    Speaking of endless repaints G1 Optimus mold probably comes to No.2 of my spending

    It's a tie between the Classics Seeker and Classics Lambo mold for me. I still have a long way to go too... T.T

    Edit: I forgot the Classics Rodimus and Classics Prime as well. Good God...

    I guess Seekers here too, since I have the most repaints of it. Plus two henkei so those add to the price.

    Masterpiece Seekers, just because the price tag starts out high. If you factor in the 3 iGear versions, it's gone over $1000

    I limit myself to only one repaint of a mold.

    So:
    Acid Storm/Thundercracker
    TM Rattrap/Blue TM Rattap
    TM 2 Cybershark/Sky Byte

    So I guess the price will depend on if I catch one version on sale or not.

    in general terms £85.00 - something like that. I've come close to buying something that cost £150.00 a couple of times but in the end I never pulled the trigger - not going to be buying any $500.00 toys though as I'd just think how many normal ones I can buy for that.

    I'd rather have lots of normal ones and the odd exclusve than a few rare or super vintage ones. who can be devalued overnight by a reissue.

    If you mean how many items do I have repaints of then that would be (as it is with a lot of people) F-15's of one sort or another (including knock offs) i've got a ton of them. just got another 3 today too.

    Universe Starscream
    Classics Starscream
    Henkei Starscream
    Ghost Henkei Starscream
    Henkei Thundercracker
    Botcon Thundercracker
    Generations Thrust
    Botcon Thrust
    Henkei Thrust
    Botcon Dirge
    Henkei Dirge
    Henkei Skywarp
    Classics Skywarp
    Classics Ramjet
    Henkei Ramjet
    Classics Acid Storm
    CHMS Orange Sunstorm
    CHMS Yellow-gold jet
    CHMS Green Rainmaker
    CHMS Yellow Rainmaker
    CHMS Blue Rainmaker
    CHMS Purple Jet x 3
    KO Grey jet
    KO Blue jet
    KO pink jet
    KO Black jet
    KO Glow in the dark Dark blue Rainmaker
    KO Glow in the dark dark green Rainmaker
    KO Glow in the dark yellow/green Rainmaker


    Still need to get E-hobby style CHMS Ghost Starscream, CHMS Conehead repaints, Clear Thundercracker & Skywarp, CHMS Ghost Starscream (Henkei style), Generations Dirge, Generations Thundercracker, KO clear Starscream, CHMS Dark Starscream, & CHMS Henkei Ramjet as well as a few other fakes like the Orange Ramjet.

    So that design type seems to be the one I'll always have the most of.
