    I was just thinking about because of a short discussion I had with someone. I mentioned I would have to sell all my Transformers eventually. But, I don't include my Rodimus's in that "everything" because to me those are toys I will take to the grave, Meaning someone else can have them, when I'm gone and buried.

    Are there any Transformers that you could just never ever bring yourself to sell?

    My G2 Optimus Prime with black trailer. I'll never sell that or get rid of it.

    I have a MIB Thunderwing that I've had since Christmas 1989. When I've no longer a use for such things, Thunderwing will be passed down as a family heirloom.

    When they consign my body to the funeral pyre, all my toys are going with me.

    This lol

    but if I really had to sell out of utter desperation I'd keep hold of my custom MP Shockwave and Hercules......probably any third party Menasor that gets released too.

    Mine'd have to be my G2 Combat Hero Optimus, G2 Beachcomber & Space-Case. They can melt along with me...

    The rest of my collection (once it's been trimmed down) is going to be a proviso in my will - you only get the inheritance if you take the figures too. *mwahaha*

    Thinking about it, Beast Wars is the line that I will have most trouble releasing because that is the series that got me in to collecting.

    I think I wouldn't mind having my dead meat rest eternally with Rattrap. He was the figure that started my TF collecting all those many moons ago.

    I can't really think of a thing that's that important, not even my '88 Cherry Sunburst Standard.

    Maybe my 2003 MT Scarab Executive...yeah that. :D

    My Cybertron/Galaxy Force stuff. I had so much fun with the figures from that line that it'd be hard for me to let go all of that. Oh, and I would include Animated Rodimus and TFP FE Starscream.
