    I have 4 Alts, 3 MPs and 1 Alternity so, there's definitely room for growth! I just like to hold off on those because they cost so much to begin with. However, it's more because there are so few that I don't want to go on a binge and have nothing left later on, ya know?

    OK, so it doesn't seem like you have Alternators/BT/Alternity.

    So here is some simple rules to collecting that line:

    1- You will need to get someone to make you the arming parts. You see the missle on Jazz? That is an arming part. The set is great, but long gone. I had a radicon make ones for me for all of my Alternators/BT/Alternity figures. I need to update the picture to show those off. It makes them look amazing.

    2- You will need to get Reprolabels. They make it them look so much better.

    3- You may want to get BT Red Alert. You can do a switch and make a proper Prowl which I have pictured.

    It is a great line, but you can make it G1 perfect with a little bit of love.

    OK, if it is terms of expenses. First think of your budget. I saw a full line at $400. So you can get it that way.

    If your going individual, go loose. I have gotten a lot of what you see there at $20 a pop.

    Since you already have Alts on the go, I'd say finish them off.

    Then, Animated. Such a fantastic line of figures.

    Classics, but only because for now, they really seem intent on keeping it alive as a line for older fans.

    There are other lines that are/were quite good i.e. Masterpiece, Animated, WST ( for the shelves saving collectability) but they won't get the range that Classics has as of the moment

    Animated. If you like the look you will enjoy the figures. The engineering is awesome.

    Agreed! IMO Cybertron is a fantastic line overall, with only a few bad molds amongst some GREAT ones. It's pathetically underrated.

    Whle Alts definitely aren't my favorite TF line by any means, they would be fairly easy to complete since there's not that mony of them in comparison to other lines. They can go for a pretty penny however...

    I gotta say after I find Leader Ironhide and HA Leadfoot my search is over for new stuff,after I find them I am going back to mostly G1,but even with them I am almost finished as I have about 75 or 80 to go.

    So after that who knows.I may call it quits or go to other lines,I don't know.

    Easily Animated. Generations, if that can really be considered a line, would be second.

    The CHUG lines come to mind, mostly because they're filled with fewer losers than most other lines, even if only a couple of the figures are mind blowingly awesome.

    G1 for me. Almost avoid modern completely. Have brought a few DOTM deluxes when on sale and have been pleasantly surprised.
