How many of us are ONLY TF collectors? And what would you like to start collecting?

    TFs are the only thing I collect seriously, though I do on occasion pick up other action figures and toys. The closest I've got to other collections (as in, wanna really keep nice or put on display) would be my Zoids and some spaceship toy/models.

    only TFs..im not really into toys, i just love transformers and everything to do with them for some reason...i guess its the way theyre more than just figures, the way they transform from one thing to something totally different..its really a special toy

    I collect DVDs (mostly anime) and keychains. And my TF collection is quite small (I'm quite happy with what I have). I also have a small collection of pogs and trading/playing cards (again, mostly anime) as well.

    I mainly am only able to get TF toys because of limited resources (money and space primarily). Even here, I've cornered my primary interests to Alts/BTs/MPs and some Classics and Movie toys. When I post a new custom thread in Radicons, it's a big deal for me because often times, that's my new toy for the month. :lol 

    I buy comics, but mostly only TF-related at that. My wife and I together do enjoy movies (our DVD collection). I thoroughly enjoy Ghost in the Shell, but I don't get anything other than the DVDs when I can [I want to get 2nd Gig as well as the Bandai movies even if they just compile episodes]. Lisa collects the Muppet Show things, Cars, and Harry Potter things, but even that's minimal as well. I enjoy G.I. Joes, TMNT, Batman, and Robocop things (as well as other movie things), but it's a very odd occurrence when I actually get an item from any of these properties.

    Long story short, I'm happy to get what I do and feel very blessed to have what I have :)

    Transformers is the only toy line I collect, although I have a few Robotech, and Voltron toys.

    I do have another collection, Blu-ray movies:DVDSpot: Front Page

    As well as TFs, I collect TMNT toys. I especially like the Mini-Mutants line Playmates started recently, and of course, the NECA figures.

    I buy a fair few GW miniatures, but those generally have a purpose in my army, so I don't consider that collecting as such.

    I'd really love to start collecting Lego. The Castle stuff they've got at the moment looks really awesome. Alas, I'm simply too low on money and space.

    Let see... Transformers are my primary, but I also collect MyClones, Mighty Muggs, various Star Wars items, DC (primarily Super Friends related), and assorted SciFi/ Fantasy related items.

    Just TFs for me, for quite a few years now. I used to have a bunch of Star Wars and Godzilla stuff, but I sold all that before I went travelling.

    Mainly TFs only except for a few Votoms toys (chiefly DMZ series). I bought some Amdriver toys, and while they are neat, now I have decided I don't need any more of them.

    Just started collecting but Transformers are my primary collection. However, I recently just acquired some Star Wars: The Clone Wars figures and 25th Anniversary G.I. Joes.

    I actively collect CD's & DVD's, but in terms of toys, I'm exclusive to Transformers. It's the same situation now as it was back in 1984 - I just don't find non-transforming-robots interesting at all since standard action figures bore the hell out of me. I almost got into Robotech, Macross, etc. but I personally feel those robot toylines are too redundant since they all look so similar.

    I use to collect, Star Wars, Simpsons, Movie Maniacs and Transformers....I only collect Transformers now. The coolest toy one out.

    I also buy a lot of DVDs but those are not toys.

    Thanx

    Only a Transformers collector here; though Gundam model kits and Futurama merchandise have tempted me.

    I'm mainly a TF collector. Every once in awhile I'll buy a Venom toy that catches my eye or a Power Rangers Zord that looks cool, but first and foremost Transformers is my focus.

    I don't consider CD's and DVD's to be close to the same thing as toys.

    Do comics and DVDs count? If not then Transformers only for me too. Occasionally I'll see a superhero figure I like, but that's very rare, like one or two figures a year that catch my eye, like the NECA TMNT.

    Just TFs, although next year, depending on how good the GI Joe movie figures look, I might start getting those too.
