    I've seen many Starscream fans proudly displaying their collection on this forum so I am wondering what the rest of you would consider the pride and joy of your collection. Be it about dinosaurs, lions, planes, dragons, or one particular TF let's hear about it. For me it's got to be Nemesis (Black) Prime/Convoy, follow by Hot Rod. I've got the following Nemesi:

    RiD Scourge (2)
    Alt Nemesis Prime (2)
    Universe Nemesis Prime
    BM Big Convoy black repaint
    BM2 Lio Convoy black repaint
    Armada Nemesis Prime
    WST Black Prime repaint
    RiD spychanger Scourge

    I am still missing the following for my collection:
    Nucleon Quest PM Prime
    G1 Black OP repaint (Jafcon or KO)
    RM Black Lio Convoy

    I got most of the Hot Rod I want including:
    G1 Hot Rod (Takara reissue)
    G1 Rodimus Prime (Takara reissue)
    RiD Speedbreaker red repaint
    Energon Rodimus
    Cyb Excellion
    Armada Hot Shot red repaint

    Still need the following:
    Takara TM Hot Rod
    RM Hot Rod
    Black & Clear Hot Rod (only if I got lots of money)

    I actually like every single one of my TFs and not just because they are TFs.

    For me, it's something like:
    1) Combiners
    2) Beast Wars & Machines
    3) Galaxy Force / Cybertron
    4) Complete set of cassettes released in the US
    5) More or less complete run of Marvel's G1 comics
    6) Everything else

    My Alternators/Binaltechs(still don't have Swerve)
    Masterpieces(Jap Prime, US Prime, and Magnus)
    Hybrid(G1 Convoy)
    RiD Scourge and Omega Prime
    OpOp
    SoC Evas
    Revoltech Evas
    Mini Sigma 6 figures and vehicles
    1/24 scale remote control M1A2 Abrams tank
    Mini Halo figures and vehicles
    1/48 scale Yammy Valks
    Masterpiece Voltron

    Probably the thing I think is the coolest is the fact that I have so many things in pretty much the same scale(Masterpiece Prime/Magnus, Alternators/Binaltech, Mini Sigma 6, Mini Halo, and the Tank).

    I don't really focus on anything in particular, but the thing I'm most proud of is my G1 Dinobots. Grimlock is broken, Slag has a bum leg, Sludge is pretty loose...Swoop and Snarl were utterly destroyed until I got a couple junkers off eay and fixed them up a couple years ago...but I still cherish them and would never sell them for anything. Well...maybe a million bucks....

    I collected only G1. But not all tfs in G1. I collected only the tfs that were actually on the show. Why ? made more sense to collect it that way. In the last few months I started to collect the Binaltech and Alternators tfs.

    Does "everything" count as a focus?

    For me, I guess "packaged items" would be my focus.

    Though he is covered up at the moment, Fort Max is my focus. [Since my parents wouldn't buy it for me, I busted my butt (as much as I could for being 9 at the time) for eight months to get the money to buy it.]

    Next I'd say would be the cities and, lately, it's been e-hobby exclusives and Botcon figures.

    Among my massive collection... I'd say my Early G1 MI(S)B and MO(S)C items.

    I've got all of series one (except for Megatron, I got the 1st Takara re-issue MISB and I think that might be a enough for me)... and about 1/3 or more of series 2. Plus other various odds and ends from the rest of G1 totaling around 65-70 pieces. I didn't start until around 2000, so I've paid a pretty penny just for what I have.

    After that... I'd say I'm most proud of my near complete Car Robots collection. All I'm still missing there are the special Clear Jusco Spychangers and the TRU exclusive clear Super God Fire Convoy/Magnus set.

    Nothing particular really. But if I have to choose I would have to say my Cybertron line.

    Same here. Additionally, my Alternators collection, which, through kitbashing and repainting, I'm trying to have duplicate the original '84 Autobot lineup.

    We've got a thread very much like this in the Collection Showcase section entitled Show off your Themed Collection.

    My main two focuses are Hot Rods and black repaints. Though lately it's mostly Hot Rods. Here they are-

    As for the black repaints it's mostly Convoys, plus a few newer ones (Dark Scorponok, Dark Nitro Convoy, Dark Fang Wolf, ehobby RM Victory Saber, etc). The only major non-lucky draw I'm missing is black Big Convoy. No pics of that group though, despite Omega Scourge bugging me for it for quite some time. :p  His group is better than mine though.

    The TFs that originally appeared in the 1st 3 issues of the Marvel Comics...I think that was the first appearance of TFs?
