Hi all! This topic might range from comical to serious depending on the take on it, and everyone might not be comfortable talking about it, but participation is of course voluntary... It has struck me since I got into collecting Transformers toys that this hobby offers plenty of opportunities for developing/triggering latent, OCD (Obsessive Compulsive Syndrome) or at least, OCD-like behavior. First it´s the aspect of collecting the toys that is admittedly slightly addiction-inducing, and can become compulsive in the sense that one starts to buy figures one really doesn´t like that much, simply to complete some kind of group of characters or some other kind of concept. And that´s not even mentioning the addictiveness of at least online shopping itself, the easiness of purchasing even from home... The next step is about the figures themselves. They invite the collector to study them closely due to their intricate design (this could even be said to be the core of this hobby, admiration of intricate design). In doing so, it´s easy to become aware of small defects on the figures in terms of inaccurate paint jobs, molding artifacts etc. Which I guess can be a source of frustration? The last thing is keeping your collection in neat condition, i.e. protect it from dirt, dust, the hands of curious but unmindful guests, and also, finding the ultimate arrangement for your figures... I guess where I´m heading at is that while my Transformers collection indeed brings me a lot of joy and satisfaction, it is also a source of worry and dissatisfaction at times. OCD-wise, if you want to call it that, I am for example adamant about my figures having flawless faces, even a small scratch in the face paint will upset me to some extent. I further definitely recognize a degree of addictiveness in my buying behavior, and I also don´t like people with oily/dirty hands playing around with at least my favorite figures when visiting. There, I confessed Having broken the ice I now invite you to share your own Transformers-related OCD. What are your Transformers-quirks?
