    You might sell your entire collection for love, money, earthly pleasures, etc - but there is one Transformer you can't bear to part with.

    Which one is it?

    Armada Bendy Prime has too many memories attached to him. He would be the very last to go, right after Animated and PCC.
    Also, HFTD Leader Starscream has a special-ish place in my heart.

    Not anymore. If it were necessary, they'd all be gone.

    My God Ginrai reissue. Powermaster Optimus Prime was my fav toy as a kid, and the darker grey and chrome just make this toy fantastic. If I get rid of everything, I'll keep this one toy above any other.

    It'd have to be my MIB Thunderwing. I lost him Christmas day (in '88 I think it was) at grandma's before I even had a chance to open him. My mother found him while cleaning my uncle's old bedroom back in '02 I think it was. I ended up receiving Thunderwing (again) as a Christmas eve present that year. I promptly opened it, applied the stickers, transformed him a few times, and then put him back in the box.

    I would definitely never let go of any of my Barricade figures.

    I have a G1 Jetfire from my youth (one of only 5-6 tfs that survived) that was on a shelf in my room all through high school, college, etc. He's got war wounds (a shoulder that my dad fixed), and had started to yellow (I peroxided him), but I think he is the one I would not sell no matter what.

    G1 Twintwist... both of them. My original Twintwist is actually getting a sticker make-over. I loved him as a kid.

    HftD Leader Starscream. A very close second and third for nostalgic reasons to me would be Beast Wars Cybershark and G1 Legends Grimlock.

    G1 Omega Supreme, he's just the mold that has the most nostalgia attached to it.

    If I HAD to sell everything, I'd still want to keep all my MP figures. Sorry, cant narrow it down to just one.

    I'd have to say the RID Bullet Trains. They were the TFs that got me into collecting when I was a kid
