Hello, I am almost brand new to Transformers. The reason I say almost is that I used to love watching Beast Wars as a kid, as well as collecting the toys. Unfortunately, at some point in my youth the toys were given away or lost somehow. When Beast Machines came on I stopped watching and never really though about Transformers again. Then the movies came out and while I thought they were pretty cool they weren't enough to gain my full attention. However, I recently bought War for Cybertron for PS3 and...wow. I am currently watching all the G1 episodes now, too, due to the interest that WFC sparked, and am interested in collecting the figures. I collect Star Wars figures so I'm not new to toy collecting but I had some questions about the Transformers figures. Also I'm only interested in collecting Hasbro figures. 1. Hasbro does a good job at keeping the main line of Star Wars figures in scale. How well does it do this with the Transformers figs? 2.After reviewing online sites and checking out the toy isle I noticed that there are many different names attatched to the toy lines. Generations, classic, reveal the shield, etc. How do these compare in quality and why so many different series? Also, to relate this to the first question, how do these different toy lines compare in scale? 3.How expensive/practical would it be to start collecting the Beast Wars series again (loose figures only)? I'm willing to pay around $15 each for the basic figures and a little more for the more deluxe ones. Sorry if this is a lot of questions! Also, really cool site and I thank you for answering my questions.
