    Hi guys! last week I moved, and my collection was obviously part of it! I basically collect G1 Season 1 & 2 (I have 1 loose 1 boxed of each and also color variants of them like the ehobby re-issues and diaclone colored reissues)and the main character from Season 3. I always thought that what I have is little compared to what some others have (specially because I do not go beyond season 3 main characters) Now with all the work it was moving, and accommodating this stuff again I realized how much stuff i have and then I got to wonder.......when will i stop????

    Have You ever thought of this?

    For me at least there IS a "finish line" - I mainly like g1 stuff, and I'm almost done with those, I just need a slew of pretenders and a few other knick knacks to bang that out... My problem is classics/generations/masterpiece etc - as long as those keep coming, I'm still "in" :)

    As soon as I complete the classic/beast wars/movie lines...Or at least thats what I tell myself. Depending on how Prime turns out, I may or may not be wasting more money in the future. :(

    I'll stop when I've got all the ones I want, and there is no more room to display them. Whichever comes first.

    When to stop good question. Death seems like a good time. If i did not have the money to collect than sure i would stop or if i ever lost interest. I will say i am glad there is not a lot of toys from DOTM that i am really interested in so i can give my wallet a bit of a break during that line.

    when i first started i said i was only going to collect one megatron and one prime from each line (this was when rotf was in full swing) then i rummaged through my old g1 bin and thought about the classics line which i had laughed at. thats when i picked up a classics sieswipe from kroger.

    long story short its a constantly changing habbit for me so i dont know that it will end
    as i collect i decide i like other things and sell off what i dont want anymore (traded out classics for henkei)

    so i think its a question you should ask your self really

    (and megatron says i thorugh away my money recklessly!)

    It will only stop on one day in the distant future. And that day is when Hasbro decides to stop making Transformers and, having won the lottery a year previously, I own every single Transformer and related product ever made.

    So no, it never stops...

    I'm happy if there's some upcoming release I can look forward to, I guess that means there's no certain set point that I decide to stop. But when I have around 500 toys I get this urge to sell some, so my "collection count" never really grows.

    I've been collecting EVERYTHING Hasbro Star Wars since 01 and then when RID hit I was back full on with Tfomers through A/E/C selectively. Then the 25th Joes came out and I was back in on that so try collecting three lines at once....Very difficult, but I've finally decided to sell off half my SW collection and to drastically cut down so I can focus on non movie TF's and new Joe stuff.

    Oh - not to mention all the G1 and vinty Joe stuff I've picked up.

    Ya it never ends...
