    Which characters are you specifically collecting? Me:

    -Optimus Prime/Primal (plus Optimus Minor)
    -Megatron/Galvatron (plus Deszaras & Magmatron)
    -Starscream (no Waspinator or Hellscream yet though)
    -Bumblebee
    -Hot Rod/Rodimus (although I made room for RID Super Sideburn, Armada Powerlinx Hot Shot & Cybertron Excellion in that collection because of their decos)
    -Soundwave (and to a lesser extent his minions Rumble/Frenzy/Laserbeak)
    -Shockwave (Shockblast/Laserwave)
    -Devastator

    Shockwave, but I don't count the atrocity that is Shockblast in my collection.
    All I need right now is a boxed G1 version, a My Clone and the two statues. Seems like a lot, considering not much was ever released for him, but counting my customs I have 10 Shockwaves.

    I don't aim to collect a specific character but it seems like every optimus mold gets into my shelves.

    I've got an entire bookshelf largely dedicated to Optimus, along with shelves for Shockwave, Skids(including versions from other continuities), Bumblebee and Cheetor.

    The only characters I would specifically collect would be the Beast Era characters. Well expect from Botcon/Club exclusive updates, because that just takes me out of the picture. But if Hasbro would do Generations or even more rare MP figures, I'd be glad to add them to the collection.

    As it is today: Optimus Primal still out numbers Prime, Cheetor still out numbers Bumblebee, Waspinator still out numbers Starscream, BE Megatron still out numbers the DC Megatrons, and Dinobot still out numbers Grimlock on my shelves. So if possible I'll add on to them if they are not some limited fan exclusive.

    Mostly just Jazz, Ratchet, or Starscream for me anymore. Use to collect whatever character I liked, but trying to cut back and only collecting those three guys, plus a few here and there.

    I don't collect specific characters although, I am working on getting all onscreen Autobots from DOTM which doesn't include DOTM VOY OP and so far all I need are a deluxe class Mirage/Dino, Wheeljack/Que and Leadfoot.

    Specifically, my holy trinity are Optimus, Megatron, and Starscream. They just look great all together. Just picked up Henkei Convoy and Henkei Megatron, to add to my collection of Revoltechs, RTS Legends, CHUGs, Masterpiece/iGear PP01 (sadly no PP02 though... c'mon iGear!), and Alternity figures of these three guys. Also MP Movie/DOTM Deluxe Starscream will look awesome paired up against DMK/Revoltech Movie Prime (and really hoping a DMK/Revoltech Movie Megatron are next sometime soon). I find it lends a very cool and unified theme to have my collection concentrate on this TF trifecta.

    But aside from those three, I do like the rest of the original three Seekers (Skywarp and Thundercracker), Wheeljack, Warpath, and Powerglide and will go out of my way to collect figures of these guys (my fiancee already has MP Skywarp and Thundercracker covered, while I just picked up Alternity SW and TC, and even a custom Revoltech SW I got her; will have to mod my own Revoltech TC soon though). Bruticus and Devastator are cool too.
