    Ive already asked what people would like to collect but could not, now i ask what do you collect when there are no tf's out that you want. Do you save your money for when some do come out or do you have a small but growing alternate collection. For instance, at the moment there are no tf's out where i live that i want and there won't be for a while so i went and got myself a retro duo and started collecting NES and SNES games to play.

    I only collect various figmas now. As far as I'm concerned, the TF franchise is dead to me.

    I watch TV and movies, read books, and try to enjoy the collection I have as well as adjusting several things with it.

    Also, I make customs, so that enables me to always be able to have new TFs :)

    - I play monster hunter. I collect weapons and armour in the game.
    - Save money which is always awesome.
    - Making custom TFs is awesome as well.

    Yugioh mostly, but that's just going by past experiences, and honestly, I can't see myself flat out not wanting anything for quite a while. Plus, there're a few things from the Reboot & Mummies Alive lines that I'd still like, and yeah. There'll never be a true drought for me hah.

    GI Joes.

    Actually, it's really more of a case of buying Transformers when there's no GI Joes around, I think. TFs have recently come into the forefront, though.

    When it's really dead, I go back to picking up vintage SW figures. I'm probably about two thirds away from a mint complete collection. I've also dabbled in Dino-Riders, the occasional Hot Toys figure, and MOTUC, but I don't know if that last one counts since I'm on a subscription and it's just a once per month thing...

    I don't have much time for anything besides collecting.

    Gundam Model kits are nice.

    The initial reason tf and go bots got my interest were cars. Hot Wheels and matchbox collecting can be fun.

    Love some Godzilla toy action.

    Designer toys are nice too and so individual it's worse then new TFs when it comes to collecting all of them.

    Trading cards and more specifically sketch cards ;)

    Halo figures and Macross. The extra $ also gets saved for lift tickiets for snowboard season.

    When there are no Transformers in the retail stores that I want, I go back to adding to my G1 collection.

    I've found myself getting more into G.I. Joe again recently, picking up some of the older 25th Anniversary figs when I can. And I'll pick up lots of different things if the mood hits me... Marvel, Young Justice, etc., just depending on if I like something. And I love finding old Starriors when I can.

    Oh, and cameras. I tend to upgrade either my still or video gear once a year, but if I can ever find an older camera that just looks cool, even if it doesn't work? I'll pick it up. My current fav is an old Graflex. Those are just awesome looking old school cams.
