    Whats the top TF lines do you collect and what make you collecting still? What keep the fire inside you that makes keep buying more?

    I go first...my top lines that I collect are G1, "Classics", and MP lines. The reason why I keep collection because I grew up watching G1 TFs back when I was a kid (G1 is my fav. cartoon)... I guess I'm a kid at heart.
    The classic and MP line are the main reason why I keep buying. If it wasn't for those 2 lines I would only be collection G1s.

    Even though I'm more into Classics (when it comes to owning the toys), I'd have to say that the Bay movies keep the fire burning. The DOTM trailer just threw a little gasoline on that fire.

    Same here. I love toy hunts because you never know what you may find.

    That and I think looking for toys and collecting them is just pure fun.

    I never collected Beast Wars , Beast Machines, Robots in Disguise, Armada, Alternators, Cybertron, Energon or WFC. But I did collected the Animated line. Hmmm funny....

    If there were only one series that kept me going, I'd be considerably less broke. I'm hitting the point where I'm only a few recolors away from being a completionist, and that's only TF figures.

    Any robot that looks cool, is my motto. I collected Beast Wars, RiD, A/E/C, Classics, Movies, 3rd Parties, and I also collect a crap load of other non TF stuff.

    I binge on movie stuff when a new movie comes out, and when it dies down I start picking up the "Classics" line for that year.

    Movie figures (mostly ROTF) and Beast wars are my favorite. I'm starting to get some of the Japanese BW stuff as well. I love how much detail and articulation they have and the designs are very unique and creative.

    I picked up a lot of universe and classics here and there, but Animated is the line that I really got into. I also bought a ton of RotF. At the moment, I normally buy most stuff that comes out save some lame repaints.

    Movie figures, Generations, Masterpieces. All are amazing to me :) . I went through a period where i just stopped collecting and caring enough, until the movies came out...then I came back with a vengance!!! My poor wallet.

    I collect mostly Bee stuff, but I often get the urge to buy other TF and non-TF stuff I find interesting. :)

    I still have a few vintage G1 figures to pick up to complete my G1 Season 1-3 show character collection. Maybe when I finish that I will head to Season 4, but with Fort Max and Scorponok that endevor could get pricey.

    Other than that really only "classics" right now. When the DotM line comes out, then that line too.

    I also wouldn't mind completing a Beast Wars collection of show characters.

    The lines I collect are:

    G1 (mainly reissues, and of figures that don't have Classics equivalent)
    Henkei (have all mainline releases and seeker exclusives)
    United (passing on Generations and RtS, have most on preorder)
    Classics (figures that weren't release in the Japanese lines like Ultra Magnus, Cliff, etc.)
    Masterpiece (other than the seekers, will only buy unique molds and no repaints)
    Unlicense/Unofficial (stuff from Fansproject, Perfect Effect, etc. that fill a void in my Neo G1 collection)

    My ultimate goal is to have all the characters that appeared in Seasons 1 and 2 of the G1 cartoon series, as well as the 1986 movie.
