    Just curious: Other than the popular G1 magnificent 7 that many collect (Optimus, Megatron, Bumblebee, Starscream, Grimlock, Soundwave and Rodimus), are there any characters that you'll collect different versions of across multiple lines? If so, why?

    I'll get any TF named "Inferno", particularly if it's derivative of G1 Inferno or BW Inferno, and comes in a red paint scheme. Love red fire trucks (G1) and also the character from BW. I even picked up a Cybertron Scrapmetal, since I couldn't afford the Botcon 2006 customizer class Inferno. I love Henkei Inferno, and invested in the TFC Gear of War accessories just for the ladder & hand blaster, as well as Maiden Japan's head guard and rifle to make him perfect.

    How about you?

    Other than those guys? I've got a few Rampages, Nemeses (not sure if they count, given they're repaints of Optimus), and I think that's about it.

    Shockwaves. I pretty much have every version minus the two store exclusive DotM Voyager re-decos and the orange bot-shot from the multi-pack.

    This, though I do have one of the store exclusives and the orange Bot Shot.
    The only ones I don't have are the G1 Decoy, the metallic TrU exclusive, the DotM stamp and the BH Constructbot.

    Arcees and Waspinators for me. I'd include Flamewar (of her three toys, I own two), but I don't believe I'll ever own the original Botcon toy.

    I suppose Acid Storms count.

    DotM Stamp? Ditto on the BH Contstuctbot, I'm hoping he'll start hitting discount stores eventually.

    Does movie-verse Bumblebee count? I know he's part of the "G1-Seven" I guess, but I really only have an interest in the Bumblebee represented in the live action films.
