    I guess it'd have to be the Cyberverse line for me. I've never been a fan of small and overly simplistic TFs. I actually hated the minicons back during Armada and Energon(except for the ones with weapon mode alts or that combined into weapons). Small, simple TFs are just unsatisfying to transform.

    But being a fan of the Prime figs, I started looking at pics and stuff of the Cyberverse stuff. Convinced myself one day to pick up Commander Optimus(not hard given the price increases on the deluxes). The very next day I was back at WM grabbing up some legion figs, Cliffjumper, Evac, and a couple Vehicons. Been hooked on'em ever since. Dunno, guess my views on the small figs must've changed or something.

    Never thought I'd own G1 Fortress Maximus but, with the reissue coming out, I soon will.

    these were all shockers to me (not cause i didn't want them, but because i never thought i'd be so lucky):

    RID Scourge - honestly didn't expect to find him for 6 goddamn dollars
    RID Ultra Magnus - got him for cheap as well
    SDCC Bruticus - i got sooooo lucky on this one
    Cybertron Galaxy Force Optimus Prime - FREE
    G1 Trypticon - again, found him for really cheap
    Primus - gift (also cheap)
    TFTM Blackout - cheap
    Cybertron LC Megatron - FREE

    all but Bruty, Prime, and Megs were found at a local comic book store

    Let's see, never thought I'd be able to have energon bruticus with fp upgrades. Took me a year but finally completed him on my birthday. Never thought I'd get a SDCC Terrorcon Cliffjumper, but I found him at a swap meet misb $30. Hated prid knockout but saw him on a peg for the first time and said" Can't believe I'm doing this..." I actually really like him(since I took off that ugly maroon and gold-ified his rims)

    Masterpiece Grimlock. Ironically, he was the first TF that got me back into the hobby.

    The entire Prime and DOTM lines. Some of the molds were just too hard to pass up.

    All of my third party purchases.

    I thought I'd never get my hands on Henkei Onslaught. He's just been eluding me for years as an expensive import, but I finally nabbed one MIB locally this week. Thankfully, he lives up to my expectations. I couldn't be happier! :D

    I have lots of toys I thought I'd never own. When I first started collecting Mini-Cons I'd see pictures online of expensive Japanese exclusive I thought would never grace my shelves. Now I have quite a few rare Micron Teams.

    I never thought I would ever own a Bumblebee figure. Than I saw Prime and the related figure. I now own one.

    I didn't have much love for the Cotton Candy brigade, but they do make a good display piece in their Beast Modes (Arranged in a Justice League arc) Especially with Snaptrap's Cannons pointed akimbo.

    I don't have much of a TF budget, so I can't make huge lump purchases (not since college anyway) or pay scalper prices for figures, but here's few...

    -RID FORTRESS MAXIMUS:

    Never got a hold of the original as a kid, and figured I'd never get one for less than a shit-ton of money. Then RID hit the air waves, and we were reintroduced to Fort Max in new colors. A while later I ran into a trader on here (can't remember who I'm afraid), and he had several RID Fortress Maximuses MIB. I got mine for $113.00 shipped. This is my first online TF buy and my first time dealing with an online trader. He's one of the prides of my collection.

    G1 SIXSHOT:

    -Echoed on this thread here: http://www.tfw2005.com/boards/transformers-toy-discussion/307359-i-have-awesome-friend.html

    ROTF HUMAN ALLIANCE BUMBLEBEE:

    -I couldn't find the original version anywhere. I didn't want the black repaint, and didn't want to pay scalper prices. My sister found him and HA Sideswipe for me at TJ MAxx. Bought them on a whim for Christmas last year, fully expecting me to have them both. She was only half-right. I had Sideswipe. :-D

    ANY OF THE FINAL RTS FIGURES

    -Grapple, Deep Dive, Strafe and Lugnut never surfaced in the wild here. A good friend of mine on here managed to find all four for me. First Grapple and Deep Dive, then Strafe and Lugnut. Both duos totaled $30.00 shipped. So sixty dollars got me all four MISB.

    -RTS Windcharger was a major want for me, but I couldn't pay $40.00 for him. Another trader on here sent him to me for $20.00. Much more acceptable.

    I am very thankful for such good traders on here.

    I never thought I'd own nearly all Binaltechs, just 2 away, excluding BT-17. I'm not paying his prices.

    Anything Beast wars. I'm pretty sure at the beginning of this year I had no interest whatsoever, could even say hated them. Love them now :lol .
