    I own the original Classics figures that were released in retail stores and skipped the repaints from previous lines. I also never attended the shows and conventions so I don't have any of the show specific figures.

    As for current and future purchases of 2.0, I bought Prowl, Sunstreaker and Tankor the other day and will be picking up Onslaught and Silverbolt when they're released. I'm still on the fence about Powerglide. He's an original mold, which I like, but I don't really dig his look very much. As for Wave 3, I'm going to be picking up Sideswipe and Silverstreak. I don't think I'll be picking up Ironhide though - he's essentially a repaint of a Movie figure right?

    What's your Classics collections like?

    I'm pretty sure Ironhide is a new mold. I have heard of the Hound and Ravage pack, I can't wait for that one. I have all of the classics realeased, just no Botcon stuff. I also have Henkei Megs, Astrotrain and a Thundercracker coming! I am hoping for a thrust very badly, LOL

    Ah okay, I stand corrected. For some reason, I thought Ironhide was a repaint of Movie Stockade or maybe some earlier figure. I can see why you wouldn't want Grimlock. His alt mode looked nice, but his bot mode leaves a little to be desired. Having his dino head become his feet was a novel idea, but didn't look too good in practice. I still loves him though!

    I also display Music label Soundwave with them, because he's the perfect size.

I also plan on picking up the Classic 2.0 figures & Henkei Starscream & Ramjet when I can.

    Ok, here is mine:

    Henkei Starscream X2, one is MISB
    Henkei Astrotrain (love this figure to death)
    Classics Jetfire
    Classics Ramjet
    Dont know if this one, but looks very nice next to classics: Titanium G1 Magnus

    And have Sunstreaker, Prowl and Tankor from BBTS on route.

    Planning on getting Silverbolt, Sideswipe and SilverStreak once they are released. Not to sure on Galvatron, Onslaught and Powerglide, I think he shoulded be a deluxe and Octane an Ultra.

    My collection is essentially the same as Pikatron's. I only go for the original molds and pass up the repaints from other lines (and I'm likely passing on Powerglide).

    I do have Titanium Scourge standing with my Classic 'Cons, though.

    IMO Onslaught is effortlessly the best Classics figure I have.

    At the moment I have Henkei Starscream and Classics Jetfire.
    I sold Henkei Astrotrain and Classics 'Bee & Rodimus soon after buying them because they dissapointed me a great lot.

    I'm hoping for a Classics 2.0 Smokescreen and I've got Henkei Thundercracker & Skywarp on preorder.
    Depending on how they look I might also get Hound, Cyclonus and the Legends minibots.

    Well it certainly makes sense to display TT Scourge with them imo. Smae scale, and he looks great. Im sure he will look even better with Universe Galvie and Cyclonus too. :)

    For better or worse, I decided to go completist with the Classics/Henkei/Universe lines. So I have every figure that could reasonably be considered part of those lines (including minicons, Botcon figs, and Legends), minus the current wave which I haven't spotted yet in my area and a pile of pre-ordered Henkeis that have been sitting at A3U for months waithing for other figures to be released. :p  I even caved and got a Crystal Convoy, but no regrets... I love the thing.

    Like Draven, I display MP3 Soundwave (as well as G1 Ravage and Laserbeak) alongside my Classics figs. I also lump in Cybertron Armorhide (standing in for Pipes), Movie Crosshairs (standing in for Outback), Cybetron Swindle, Real Gear Photon (standing in for Reflector) and if I'm feeling charitable, Movie Geewun Jazz and Energon Downshift. Though lately I've been feeling those two don't quite make the cut. :) 

    The only figures I passed on that made me waffle a bit were the Japanese repaints of the Classics minicons. I just couldn't justify the cost for what they were, and I didn't care for most of the repaints. But I tell myself they aren't REALLY part of the Classics series.

    I have all the mass release classics in deluxe and voyager. I have Devastator and Skwarp. No Magnus didn't appeal. I have the first wave of universe/classics deluxes and legends. Will be getting Blaster, Dropshot, the comic two packs, Wal-Mart 3, and any other repaint that I like the deco on. Got some legends from classics (Motormaster and Whirl), and am sorry I missed two (Fireflight and Perveptor). For Henkei I'll have (provided Spencer can ever get some stock in) Megatron and Astrotrain. Plus Powerglide and Thundercracker pre-ordered.

    Given that Classics is what I've been pleading, beggging and hoping for pretty much since I got back into collecting TFs.. a modernized, reimaged G1 done with modern toy designs, I'm pretty much a completist for the main line (i've got a handful of the minicons and I dont really collect LoC figures outside of Prime).
    So the full list:

    Astrotrain
    Henkei Astrotrain
    Bumblebee
    Henkei Bumblebee (Had I known Hasbro was doing an even better still repaint in that 3-pack I'd have passed on this one, but...)
    Cliffjumper
    GoD Bugbite
    Constructicon Devestator
    Henkei Jetfire (on pre-order)
    GoD Dreadwing
    Prime and Tank Megatron 2 pack
    Mirage
    Megatron
    Henkei Megatron
    Optimus Prime
    Ultra Magnus
    Shattered Glass Prime
    Henkei Convoy
    Henkei Grimlock
    Starscream
    Henkei Starscream
    Skywarp
    Henkei Skywarp (pre-order)
    Ramjet
    Henkei Ramjet (pre-order)
    GoD Thundercracker
    Henkei Thundercracker (pre-order)
    GoD Dirge
    GoD Thrust
    Rodimus
    Shattered Glass Rodimus
    Sunstreaker
    Prowl
    Tankor

    So long as they keep coming I'll be happy, especially once I get the cash for a Crystal Convoy
