    So when thinking about all the different lines out here, it got me wondering which ones take priority over the others when collecting multiples. Where does your money go first. I know for me, Classics/Generations stuff is on top. Was just wondering to see what everyone else says.

    The list of lines, based on what's still on shelves
    Classics/Generations Stuff
    The mainline for the cartoon
    Kre-O
    Movie stuff
    Bot Shots
    Crossovers
    MP
    Any past line (through internet)

    The last one on there is in case someone prefers collecting old stuff. So ya, what takes priority for you?

    ((The list is what I plan to put in the poll when i add it, but since i always miss an option, I'm holding off a bit lol. Also, think i should add 3rd Party?))

    Unicron Trilogy takes priority but mostly the Cybertron part of it.

    classics, prime, masterpiece and thats it for me in fact i might stop colecting after them unless they do another beast wars.

    of course collecting masterpiece's means i will never truely out of the game and classics.

    but i can only see downsizeing and plastic quiltey geting worse.

    Anything Scout, Deluxe, Voyager, Leader, Ultra or Supreme transformers from 2000 to 2006. Anything else can either stay with someone or just stay somewhere else unless it's name is Hotshot or from anime.

    LOL, base on the priority list above, I don't even have one, ehhe. My personal priority lines and money spending go to:
    Masterpiece Line
    G1 Reissue Line
    Ultra Magnus Line (if there''s such thing, eheh)

    At the moment, it's Prime toys. But before then, it was movie stuff.

    Lately most of my money has gone into G1.

    But I've been buying from several other lines as well.

    Anything Classics/WFC&FOC/AEC/whatever invokes that aesthetic is my top priority. Movieverse and Prime are far, far second, whatever tickles my fancy there I might get. Avoiding Animated and Rescue Bots like the plague.

    My only high priorities are the TFPrime mainline (US releases and/or Arms Micron), followed by 3rd party items. After that, the only thing I'm really focused on is picking up the last ~15 vintage items I still want, but that's not a big rush.

    As for the other lines, Generations will be a higher priority when/if it gets back to Classics-style figures but, with the focus on FoC, I'm only interested in G2 Bruticus and Grimlock. The Masterpiece line isn't on my radar at all until we get confirmation of a domestic release for MP Soundwave. I have everything I want from the Movie lines, so that's not an issue. And I don't collect Kre-O, Cyberverse, Bot Shots, Crossovers or any of the other random unusual stuff that pops up on occasion.

    My main line is the DOTM line, but I collect throughout all of the movie-verse. It's mainly the cheap, yet accurate figures. Like BB OP or Deluxe Ironhide.

    for me I have little interest in the current lines beyond some of the FoC figures and anything else that might come out in generations after those.

    So my focus is mainly on older lines but no one line in particular.
