    Gormiti. I'd have to say that's rather quirky, all things considered.

    Webdiver, the line that tried replacing Transformers. Drill tanks that turn into two headed dogs, car carriers that turn into dragons, and a pirate ship that turns into a DRAGON PIRATE! How did this line fail?!

    Its more like a semi continuation of Braves (the robots/animals combining with the main Robot is quite similar to Baan Gaan in fact. Damn it now I want some).

    Webdiver is pretty awesome. Do you have Gradion, yet? It's one of the tougher figures to find. I was lucky enough to find someone on here who was selling one. I'd love to get the rest of the large figures. They're all pretty cool. I'd also like to get some Daigunder, but those are so damn hard to find. I've seen a couple on Ebay, and that's it.

    Just toy lines that aren't mainstream or others would not think of as collectible.
    Garbage Pail Kids...that'll do it.


    I saw the Gormiti commercial a few times, but have not seen them in a store here. i wouldn't mind collecting them if they are pretty nice and easy to obtain.

    I used to collect Rescue Heroes.
    I still have my first 2...Matt Medic and Aidan Assist. I quit to focus more on GI Joes and TFs.


    Those kinds of quirky.

    Yup, I've got Gradion, still know a reliable shop with a bunch of Webdivers actually. It's Wyverion I dont have yet, I saw it on eBay once and passed cause it was missing it's missiles, I've never regretted a pass more than that.

    I have the basic 4 Clerks figures, found them by accident at a record shop.

    never found the others. Thanks for reminding me of those.

    glad no one has said Webkins.

    I have a collection of loli figurines that I keep in a locked draw away from judging eyes.

    Does that count as quirky? :D
