    It doesn't have to be the most expensive one in your collection, or the rarest one you own. Just one (or more) that just make you smile when you look at it/them.

    My most recent one would have to be my Ehobby Twincast. I just love it! I know that there is nothing really special about it. It's just a blue Blaster with a slightly bigger chest compartment. But it brings back memories of my childhood hearing "legends" about the mythical black Soundwave and blue Blaster that could hold two cassttes! But they only existed in Japan. I thought that I would never even get to see one, and now I own one.

    It's just too cool!

    Same with my God Ginrai. Hearing stories about an extra trailer for Powermaster Prime, but again, only in Japan. And now it's mine.

    Brave Maximus too. When I got him I spent an hour just staring at him.

    So how about you?

    Chiche, yes, but Optimus Prime 20th. With all the little gears and hydrolics and extras, I'm always a proud owner when I see him on the shelf.

    I second God Ginrai, for the same sort of reason as you, Shockwave75. It's just such a cool toy, and it's awesome that we finally got him reissued.
    Probably the one that makes me smile the most, though, is Liokaiser. I wanted one for years, and when I finally did get the giftset it only set me back $175. :) 
    Close runenrs up would be G1 Megatron & Shockwave; I never had them as a kid (Shockwave didn't even come out over here), so I was over the moon when I finally did.

    The whole Cybertron Defense Team, but especially Scattorshot. He definitely got the most extensive upgrade.

    I also lurve me some Cybertron Downshift. I don't know what it is about him...I just can't help myself from playing with him. As soon as I saw the Big Daddy repaint announcement, I knew he would be mine as well. Just two blocks of win and awesomecraft.

    None of them do any more... I'm hoping Argent Meister manages to pull that off when it gets here.

    If I had to come up with the one that manages to make me less angry... Animated Voyager Bulkhead.

    My Masterpiece Optimus Prime, Megatron and US Starscream. They're just awesome and I wish I could put them under glass or something. Also gotta go with my G1 Dinobots.

    G1 Soundwave. Appeals to the kid in me, appeals to the adult in me, appeals to the articulation nut it me, appeals to the gadgetformer nut in me, and works the nostalgia factor hard.

    Also to a lesser degree would be WST Soundwave and MP3 Soundwave, but mostly because they emulate their grand-daddy.

    My RID Prime. A jerk sold it to me like at 20% of its real price. He didn't know what he had, he put the price, I bought it, I smile now.
