    Maybe it's just me, but I like cutting out cards on deluxes and pretending they're tech specs.

    I keep some. I don't know what makes the cut or what doesn't, but I think I'm throwing most of mine out anyways.

    Even before I got back into the franchise thanks to the movies I was saving all the tech specs for all the Beast Wars figures. Some of the artwork was pretty dang cool and its a shame they stopped doing that with Beast Machines and I don't think has made any appearances as of late. Its always a badly photoshoped and sometimes badly transformed pic of the figure. Not really that exciting but 8/10 the figures themselves make up for it.

    I don't consider them REAL tech specs unless they have a bio on them

    Yeah I do and I recently started saving the backs as well, since i like the CGI work on them. Kinda wish I started earlier with the backs though...

    As for the cards--I've got everything to date, but I'll never get a RID Prime or Bulkhead, so those cards are out of question =/

    Haven't done that, cool idea! :) 

    The closest thing I've done is put the backing cars of my Legends in clear books.
