    I'm curious to hear what everyone would do with their money if they had no transformers and 3k to spend - and why. Let's hear it!

    I’d probably pare my collection down to some of those crazy prime one studio statues or some boxed G1. Quality over quantity

    $3k can go a long way for Legends collection.

    Probably I'd buy FT Dibots all over again and a few MPs like TE-01 or TT Wheeljack - as stand-alones of my most favourite characters. I'd invest the rest in Legends class figures. Some of them look better than Masterpieces and they don't need all that space. This way I'd also have my complete S1-3 line-up for much less than I've spent to this day.

    Now ask me again what I would do with my savings. :ev:

    Iron factories scorpinok, jetfire, cybertronian datsun brothers, Lamborghini brothers. Newage datsun, jazz, bumblebee, irionhide/ratchet. A few others but I would have see what would best fit a legends display probably I would grab Hasbros titans cities for display options. Also I would put maybe 500 to the side for a large display cabinet. Maybe set up a nice battle scene diorama

    I’d probably pair down to like 5-6 characters per faction and pick up their MPs and G1 versions ... something like this library display I did a few months back

    What do you mean, if I had NO Transformers? Have I ever had Transformers? Did I lose/sell my collection at some point? I mean it's probably going to affect my answer...

    MP Ultra Magnus $150
    MP Megatron $200
    MP Optimus Prime $350
    MP Star Saber + KFC Victory Leo $300
    Zeta toys Superion $350
    Takara Fortress Maximus + upgrades $300
    Titan Scorponok $150
    Haslab Unicron $600
    TR Trypticon $150
    Maketoys Metroplex $400

    These are all figures I have (excluding Scorponok and Unicron of course) and love, so it's not a "you just started collecting, are given $3000 and a catalogue of figures, now fill the cart" scenario. The criteria I used are: all the city bots (it's one of my goals in collecting), at least one combiner, no duplicate characters (this got Flame Toys Star Saber excluded).

    I’d go for the best representations of the biggest characters (for me).

    Autobots
    TE-01 Prime, MP Ironhide, Ratchet, Sunstreaker, Sideswipe, Prowl, Wheeljack, Bumblebee 2.0 and Ultra Magnus. FT Grimlock, Arcee, Hotrod, Kup, XTB Springer. DX9 Omega

    Deceptions
    MP Megatron and Shockwave +, FT Galvatron and Cyclonus. Maketoys Seekers. FT Soundwave and Astrotrain. ToyWorld Devastator

    I think that’d be close enough to $3K

    I'd get a legends collection to not have my shelves as crowded as they're currently in classics scale.
