I'm not sure which one did for me, but how about you?
easily for me it'd be Bandai's SHFiguarts. the only figures i own of that line (so far) are Black RX and Hercus, and they are AMAZING!
DCUC. It is everything I could ever want in a superhero line..and they are sooo easy to find at stores
Yeah, I got to go with DCUC too. I've never been so impressed with a toyline since Beast Wars.
I second that. I started in 07 but missed out on so much awesome stuff
I second SH FIGUARTS They're the most articulated and nicely sculpted figures I have ever owned, each one is like a masterpiece to me C: enough so that I spend ludicrous amounts of money on exclusives XD
me 3 and it was the beast wars
Hmmm..... Bionicle or Transformers.
Marvel Legends. Been going in some way/shape/from since 2002, and I have most of them......................
For me its kind of hard...
i) early to mid 80s - MOTU
ii) mid 80s to 89 - TFs
iii) 90s was pretty dry not much outstanding toys for me.
iv) early 00 - definitely Marvel Legends. It was definitely the toy line that set the standard for US action figures. As it stands, DCUC currently is the best US action figure toyline.
Transformers, definitely. It was my gateway drug into other figures (though I don't have that many other figures).
Too bad I missed Classics when it came out
Bionicle. It's a toyline that started at the beginning of the decade and ended at the end of it. Only toyline I've actually never taken a break from collecting.
It's easily DC Universe Classics. Great character selection, great sculpts, great articulation. Despite it's problems with distribution and quality control, I haven't been this addicted to a toyline EVER. Not even with Transformers or Star Wars.
figuarts or transformers
Oddly it was Saint Seiya Myth Cloth and Power Ranger Megazords (I blame it on the US version of G12)
A tough decision to make. I don't have just one.
The Masters of the Universe Classics line blew me away, and continues to do so. Every figure that has come out so far has been outstanding in nearly every way. This is really a second golden age for HE-MAN fans.
I got back into Transformers in 2007. The movie toys were/are so-so, but the Classics/Universe toys really did it for me. I love those.
GI Joe 25th Anniv. figures really impressed me as well. I never had any of the originals, except for a select few that were gifts. I wasn't allowed to have 'em when I was a kid, but I loved the cartoon, and these new figures are outstanding.
That makes it a 3-way tie up there.
Runners up would be:
Star Wars Legacy Collection. Plastic crack I tell you!
Lego Star Wars. Only have one, and I wish I had gotten some sooner.
Toynami Robotech VF-1 series (book box) Veritechs. Yeah, yeah, I know, Yamato is better. Maybe so, but I really like my VF-1J Max and VF-1J Myria Valkyries. The Alpha fighters suck though, sadly.
Well, if we're talking about lines started within the decade...
Xevoz. Great concept, great designs, great line. It died too quickly.
