    Not sure if anyone has the same issue as i do. A frined asked me at the last show whats your top prized piece. I sat and thought, and I cannt say I have a top 1 peice. If I had to sell off the the whole collection I would say there is 5 peice I would have to keep.

    Piece A, a mint in box g1 dirge given to me by my mom in 05 as a xmas gift, that she bought back in the day but for 1 reason or another was never given to me. still factory sealed

    Peice B; my fort max that i complete from a body on up, for another 500 dollars at the time

    Piece c , my sign poster proof 20th anniversary 86 movie poster, sign by cullen and 4 other voice actors

    Piece d, my dinoking

    Piece e, my giftset liokaiser

    I'd say RID Omega Prime. Technically 2 TFs, but I always display them as Omega Prime. Lost my original RID Optimus and Magnus as a kid, but found them again, and it's glorious!

    Honorable mentions: MP-04 (soon to be dethroned once I get the US MP-10), Classics Jetfire

    I would have a hard time choosing between:

    Boxed G1 Prime
    Boxed G1 Megatron
    AFA 85 G1 Jazz
    Masterpiece Grimlock (either one, this figure is just awesome).
    Brave Max

    Mine would be Hercules, though he's 6 different figures

    After that, MP Grimlock. If I ever sell my collection, he's the one figure I'm keeping

    B. TFC Hercules
    C. The Predaking I built scouring ebay and local vintage shops to get descent prices on each member and the peices
    D. The Takara Beast Megs that just recently came out
    E. the Keychain G1 BB I bought back when I was in college
    F. The CHUG Lugnut and WFC Soundwave I have in the classic John Cusack "Say Anything" pose (not really a OMG peice but the pose makes me smile)

    This is a really good question, my test is - if I could only save one toy, which would it be? It's rarely an easy question to answer.

    Right now it's probably my Takara MP-10 Optimus. That thing is near Transformers perfection.

    Also right up there would be
    - MP Megatron
    - Predaking first reissue
    - My original G1 Optimus from 1985
    - My original G1 Jetfire from 1986

    A. Omega Prime
    B. Classics Grimlock
    C. Classics Ramjet
    D. MP Grimlock
    E. Prime Voyager Meagtron
    F. RID Megatron/Galvatron
    G. RID Cryotek

    Both B and C have memories to do with my mother.

    Pure nostalgia wise I'd say my Beast Wars collection.

    My two crowning jewels are:

    1. MP-01B - My very first Masterpiece and an awesome one at that. The main attraction of my collection.

    2. BW '96 Megatron - May not seem like much, but I was searching high and low for a reasonably priced Megatron and whenever I did, I was always sniped at auction. Took about 4 years, but I finally got one on a last-minute snipe for about $10. Glorious day that was...

    Either my original G1 Optimus Prime or my MIB Black Convoy.

    Maybe MISB Henkei Jetfire, that's probably worth a lot now.

    Tough call, as I've got a bunch of Transformers that I would consider "trophy" pieces. However, the 2007 movie poster I got, signed by Peter Cullen, for being one of the two "winners" of the Stop Sector Seven viral marketing ARG is probably the coolest Transformers thing I own:
    [​IMG]

    As far as toys go, it's hard to pick but my near-complete, near-mint G1 Scorponok is my current main trophy piece:
    [​IMG]

    Additional "trophies" Blesser and Reverb are also in the shot, along with my G1 Shockwave duo. Not pictured are Amazon Japan exclusive Black RotF Leader Optimus Prime and Animated Deluxe Lockdown (which has sentimental value). It's hard to pick just one!

    It would have to be my G1 Optimus Prime that I was lucky enough to get for my 8th birthday. It's well loved, but still has all the accessories and sitting proudly on my dressing table, opposite my wife's Royal Doulton Porcelin figures :)

    I have some mildly-valuable G1 stuff (Swoop, Brainstorm, Sureshot, Crossblades), but I gotta say that my favorite Transformer in my collection is the sole remaining figure I have from my childhood...

    AIR RAID.


    Sentimentality aside....I gotta say it's my Air Attack Optimus Primal. That figure - alt mode especially - just blows me away.:D

    My Galaxy Force Lucky Draw Flame Convoy Sky Lynx Edition aka Blue Flame Convoy.

    Considering there are only 49 others, it's not exactly something that's easily replaceable. It's the only Lucky Draw I was seriously motivated to pick up and I can't imagine parting with it.

    My most priced possession used to be MIB Liokaiser, but I traded it away so it's gone. Now my pride and joy are:

    G1 Overlord
    G1 Predaking 5 boxes
    G1 Grimlock
    G1 Shockwave
