Which types of toys don't you collect, either ever or rarely purchase.
The movie-verse toys Never bought a single one.
Wow, Kre-O and Bot Shots broke out at the head of the pack really early.
I checked off almost all of them except for 3rd party, Takara Imports, Prime, and Classics. These are the 4 main lines I collect.
While it's not one of the choices listed I have to admit I don't care for Beast Wars and its follow up lines. It's purely an aesthetic choice. I just don't like the look of them. I grew up with G1 and never got into the BW series (but it did have it's moments)
I guess I'm a "Truck, not Monkey" guy.
I would say most of them =P
I really only care for G1, CHUG, MP and 3rd party stuff and even then I am quite picky on which ones I get.
I don't really see myself as a collector since my goal is not to have a big or complete collection but rather to have a small selection of toys that I truly appreciate.
Don't Collect - I have one or two figures from most of these groups, but rarely buy them and the lines don't interest me...
- Bot Shots
- Shattered Glass
- Convention Exclusives
- Takara MP figures
At this point, I only actively collect some Prime, some Arms Micron, Classics-style figures, 3rd party stuff and some domestic MP figures.
I never intended to collect movie figures , However when they were free last year I took the plunge and got them all.
I have no intention of collecting Animated figures ever. I do own a Arcee Animated figure that was part of a Classics lot I purchased. Never got around to selling it.
Convention exclusives (with the exception of those BotCon 2006 ones, if I ever find them), Shattered Glass, Takara imports, and Third-party.
Wow, can't believe SG got a special entry outside of con exclusives.
I'm surprised Shattered Glass is so high on the list, but then I guess anyone who isn't a club member wouldn't collect them, so that cuts off a majority of people right there.
Not really, even if you're not a club member, there are still options like Botcon, and other sources online.
Third Party,Convention Exclusives,Takara Imports,and Shattered Glass because of the high prices.
Bot Shots just because I don't care for them.
3rd party, not because I don't want to, but because I haven't gotten around to getting some. I also don't collect BW and don't have plans of doing so.
only things on that list I don't collect are shattered glass or any of the botcon/tfcon exclusives.
Yes I have a giant pile of KREO I hav'ent built yet And I've got most of the botshots. Just looking for the three pack with Shockwave at the moment.
I don't buy a ton of third party. But I think what I do buy is reasonable. I've got both corbot V axes, TFC Hercules, The whole fansproject Causality line, and Sonicron with all the tapes.
I'll buy anything I feel is a good value and connects with my hobby.
The only one from that list I don't collect now or at one point in time are the minions.
Prime: haven't bought any yet, but am anxious for thundertron.
Imports: only have alternity megatron
Exclusives: mainly store exclusives, but sdcc if they're available and affordable
Foc: getting characters that I dont have them represented by generations or wfc.
Yeah, you can buy the toys, expecially the repurposed toys, but if you are not a club member it's difficult to read the majority of the fiction, and if you don't care about the characters, you probably don't buy them.
Rescue Bots (Until they make them show accurate or whatever.), any Takara line (Just to expensive.), and as of now Generations, haven't bought anything from it recently.
Takara Imports, Bot Shots, Convention Exclusives, SG, 3P, Classics and Mini-Cons.
