    The years about to end so I’m gonna prompt this question, how many (TFS specifically) have you bought this year?

    If anyone seriously hit anything above a few hundred at the absolute most this year I'm seriously concerned. Your poll choices are way off.

    A hundred is a lot in a calendar year.

    I maybe bought a dozen Deluxe/Voyager figures and a couple Leaders, plus Siege Jetfire.

    I tend not to count the Micro/Target/Battlemasters and Scouts or Legends or whatever the kids are calling them nowadays, though. I don't exactly budget for those. They're like impulse buys.

    249 toys. Not too much. Officially. Can I show my wife?

    If these brackets were how much we spent this year, that would probably be a bit more reasonable.

    Can't remember the exact number, but it's around 120.

    I'd say 30-50ish. That seems like a lot to me.

    Solely Botbots accounted for around 200, so... 300-ish? But yeah, those poll totals seem really high. I mean, I've been collecting for over 22 years and I still am not halfway towards the top number in that poll.

    I bought 29 Transformers this year, which is a lot for me (I only got 12 figures in 2018, so it's not bad)

    I don't keep count, but probably too many, many irresponsibly so. My wallet is in a perpetual state of trauma.

    My friends like to call me a nerd, but I'll have it known Fallout bought roughly 55 Transformers every single day for a year.

    Not too many according to the poll - but far too much in reality. I'm certain parents laugh real hard when their kids want to "collect" transformers. Get a job, kid! Seriously though, there's no way parents keep up with this stuff - it comes too fast.

    Probably in the neighborhood of 50. I imported about half of Takara Siege and went with Hasbro for about a dozen exclusives.

    I bought a total of 17 new figures this year. To me that's a lot and the most I've bought in a single year this decade and a half.

    I bought less than 50 TFs this year...I think. Most of 2019 was spent picking up stuff from other lines. I’m pretty much in maintenance mode with TFs at this point in that I already have most of the stuff currently out there that I want.
