    So what is it? I bet this has been posted coupious times though but I took a chance. I think mine is 2008 BB from the movie or my Bulkhead from Animated. See, I only have 5 figures now (after having to throw away Sideburn, Cheetor and Rhinox)

    All of 'em.....I am very picky about what TFs I buy. I buy ones that have sentimental/nostalgic value and/or I buy the ones that I really like the design of. I simply love them all. :thumb sup:

    Masterpiece Starscream. Or maybe my new Unicron. Oh, I can't choose between the two.

    Fort Max. It's actually Brave Maximus or Grand Maximus, but I can never remember the real name because I always call him Fort Max. The red and black one, him.

    He'll always be Fort Max to me. *sniff*

    Probably my original BW Ignuanus - the one that brought me back to Transformers. If we're not talking sentimental treasure, then the one I'm most pleased by owning would be...hmmm....tough to say. Maybe Darkseid Magatron? MP Prime? There are a lot of great cheap toys out there too that I think are little treasures. Tough question.

    Of the TF's that made it through my childhood, my G1 Grimlock holds the sentimental placard for me.

    Most cherished figure? MP Prime. I can't count how many times my daughter and I played with that figure, and what great times we had (and still have) with it.

    I don't have a particular favorite, but I do have Classics Ultra Magnus with city armor displayed on my dresser, which is a rarity. I usually don't do that.

    If I had to keep only 1, it would be Takara Movie Leader Battle Mode Optimus Prime.

    While I do have plenty of expensive figures, I believe that my favorite TF is my G1 Trypticon. It was one of the few TFs to survive the "hand-me-down-azation" of my toys once I grew out of them & make it back to me once I started collecting as an adult. I spent a few dollars buying all the accessories back that got lost over time but it's the nostalgia of having something back from my childhood that makes him teh awsum for me.

    Out of my whole collection though, my all time favorite would have to be my "Pre-GoBots" Devil Satan 6: the original version of Monsterous. Blasphemy, I know right? A Go Bot? But Monsterous was the only combiner style bot that I ever had as a child & I didn't just get him as a gift, I won him in a contest. He was also one of the few bots that I got as a child that was brand new, most of my toys came from garage sales & stuff as a kid. I used to be so embarrassed as a kid, now I'm an adult and most of my toys come brand new from the store and I wish I could get them from garage sales... lol Noting like finding a good deal on an old bot.

    '76 Camaro Bumblebee. It's the first TF I bought with my own money. One of his doors broke off, but I still love him.

    I got three top treasures:

    1. Armada Hot Shot (the original one): Sure, he's crap by today's standards, but he was my first TF, so he's still around for old childhood memories, and at least he's got better weapon options then his new Universe counterpart (the original may lack articulation, but he's got both the Axle-zooka AND has 5mm fist holes, which the new Hot Shot does not have)

    2. Alternators Battle Ravage: I've only got two alts, but this guy is much more cooler then my other Alt: Hound. He's supposedly BW Ravage's mind powered by G1 Cassette Ravage's spark jammed into an Alt. Corvette body and is the fulcrum of the entire Binaltech story of how the splinter universe was created. He's also heavily armed, moreso then almost any other of my TF's, and his cat head w/ moving jaw is unique to him alone. Excluding the last two Alts, Jaguar XK Ravage and Rumble, I think he's the most "Decepticon" looking Alt. of all, since most Decepticon Alts. were just Autobots repainted and minorly retooled.

    3. G1 Sixshot. An original 1987 Sixshot in great condition, just missing guns and with some sticker wear, that I found for a bargin $27 at Botcon 2008. He's the first ever Sixchanger, and frankly Hasbro has never topped his ability to have six (seven if you count Winged Wolf) modes that look nothing alike but good at the same time (Excluding Cyb. Scrapmetal, who isn't officaly the guy with the most alt modes ever)

    My Powermaster Prime.
    It's my first and oldest TF, and...let's call it "battle damage"...
    makes it look even cooler.

    To me.
