    Top ten. I cant say for sure ten but a few i wont part with is easy.
    Any of my MPs. they were expensive in comparison to the rest of my collection and i love them.
    Any of my Beast Wars figures. I love me my Ratrap.
    Universe 2 inferno. He was hard to find at retail and i adore the figure.
    My old g1s. They are beat up and not worth much but thats my childhood there.

    There are only two I can think of:

    1) Classics Grimlock ~ Last Transformer my mother bought me before passing away.
    2) Classics Ramjet ~ Picked him up when shopping for a dress shirt/pants for her funeral.

    Powermaster Optimus Prime: My absolute favorite as a kid, I still have it!
    Alternators Prowl: Tied as one of my absolute favorites as an adult. In real life I drive a white RSX and when I saw this mold I had to have it. Love my car, love this model, and Prowl is my favorite character. Win.
    Classics Optimus Prime and Jetfire: The two figs that got me back into collecting and still my favorite CHUGS.
    Classics Ultra Magnus & Skywarp: Recently acquired as a complete surprise gift from my brother and his fiancee who knew how much I wanted to build up City Commander. Such a special gift I wouldn't want to part with either figure!
    FP Blesser: Too special and a reminder of the human spirit.

    There's others but those are my big-ticket guys.

    Confession time. When I first came across this thread, I thought the OP was asking about the top 10 transformers that will never grow up, and I planned on replying with the question of it being easier than answering with the top 10 transformers fans who'll never grow up.

    Keeping to the topic's actual intent however, I'm gonna assume that simply buying the figures again isn't an option, as that would take away what I'm guessing is the thread's meaning. In other words, and in no particular order...

    - BW Depth Charge
    - Henkei Dark Skyfire
    - G1.5 Scorch
    - Insect Transformer Bite (far right in pic)
    - G2 Green Slag
    - BW Dinobot
    - Generations Thrust
    - BW Quickstrike
    - G2 Sideswipe
    - BW Bat Optimus Primal


    ... My Hero Combat Megatron/G2 Optimus/G2 Goldbug/G1 Flywheels would probably be the runner upps, and I can easily see RTS Jazz joining that list as well (if we're allowing 15 anyway). I think it's safe to say that Depth Charge is always on top of my "omg never give up" list, though. I know he's hardly the most valuable or iconic, but he's grown to become my favorite for one reason or another.

    I just realized theres no way I can limit my own list! Might as well add on to it....

    -G1 Metroplex - has a special meaning to me, one of the last ones my uncle gave me, before he moved on to Star Trek. Biggest Trekkie ever lol
    -G2 Laser Prime, G2 Reissue Laser Ultra Magnus, RID Nemesis Prime (I refuse to call him Scourge)
    -Nike Sports Label Optimus, Magnus and Megatron - these three are symbolic for me because they combine exercise (one of my passions and exercise science is my major right now, that is the career path I chose) and Transformers.
    -G1 Prime and Magnus - even though I only have the cabs, they are the oldest bots I have and I cannot part with them.
