    Well the name says it all. what are you still finding yourself gravitating towards with all the different series that have come out? Are you trying to complete some specific set like the takara or hasbro reissues? Looking for that one last eusive MISB to finish your Beast Wars set? Looking for the new alts?

    Are there ones that you are finding yourself not wanting anymore?


    I'm finding myself focusing now on the Takara Reissue collection... And the Alts, and finding myself gravitating away from the Main Cybertron/Galaxy Force sets...

    Alternators.

    That's all. I've picked up pretty much everything I want from Cybertron, save for Sonic Bomber, but I'm finding myself only really feeling much interest in my Deluxes, of which I have all I want. I'm missing all but one of the Armada remolds and Dirt Boss. I don't think those are any big lack. ;)

    It seems like, at the end of the day, I still become most interested in G1 reissues and repaints.

    It makes no sense since I've had nearly every G1 toy I could ever want at one time or another.

    Women! Their packaging is clearly the most attractive. :p 
    I also look at Reissues or Alternators, if the mold is good.

    The focus of my collection is Decepticons. I collect Alternator, Cybertron, reissues, and G1/BW/previous line to complete a line. Due to other toys like Sigma 6 and Marvel Legends I am aimming to cut down on my TFs but I'll still get the ones I like. I'll most likely get rest of Decepticon cybertron figs no matter what it is and any Alternator decepticons after Decepticharge.

    Edit: And I am really looking forward to the new BW repaints and hope they'll reissue other characters like Scorponok, Terrorsaur, Rhinox, etc from the show.

    Minions of Unicron.


    That's it for me, with the exception of the leaders of the lines (have GF Convoy and Cyb Megatron)

    Mainly Alternators and any reissue that I either don't already have or it can replace one of my orginals that is in bad shape.

    Alternators, although even with that I'm only getting one per mold incarnation now. I no longer go hunting for the mainline.

    Cybertron Galvatron, the odd G1 paperwork, and any cool Alternators or Cybertron toy. Alternators Mirage and Primus are good examples!

    The new main lines have almost no appeal to me. Out of Armada, Energon, and Cybertron I've bought maybe 3 toys---Unicron, Vector Prime, and Jetfire.

    I gravitate towards Takara G1 reissues and Alternators almost exclusively.

    And now the new Beast Wars repaints.

    Cybertron. Also, the occasional Alternator (still want to get Sunstreaker).

    Hmm.....Vintage G1, Cybertron (+the odd GF), ALT/BTs, BW, G1 Re-issues.

    The only thing that I'm looking forward to would be a redone G1 line. Figures much like the Hybrid Convoy, but a little bigger.

    I'm jonesing for Alternators pretty bad, especially finding the Sunstreaker wave at retail. No luck so far!

    Completing the RID line (waiting for JRX to arrive from BBTS, and getting Scourge, when I can afford him)

    The G1/BW themed Robotmasters

    Cybertron Soundwave, Primus, Crosswise

    nonTF: the modern MOTU
    super-poseable Teen Titans
    maybe 1/2 of DC Superheroes
    Robotech (if affordable)
    comic-style FF line

    Nothing in particular. I just intend to pick up some more Cybertron figures, and whatever from previous lines that catches my fancy.

    I recently bought 2 Scopedogs, but I don't think I will get any more of them.
