    A few weeks ago Just got back into collecting after about 7 or 8 years - I used to only pick up g1 stuff I grew up with

    Now after 7 years hiatus I have gotten into third party and masterpiece. Here is what I have picked up so far:

    Zeta Bruticon
    Toy world constructor perfect
    Dx9 Gabriel in transit
    Dx9 Capone on preorder
    Soundwave MP 13 reissue
    Megatron MP 36+
    MP Thrust
    MP Dirge
    MP Skywarp

    Will be getting zeta or Fantoys superion. Haven’t decided
    Will be completing dx9 or fantoys menasor haven’t decided

    I might stick with just a full set of FT dinobots. Super nostalgic and amazing figures. Perhaps MP44 Prime and MP36 Megatron too

    FT, IF, NA and MS Soundwave figures
    FT, NA, MS and Siege Reflector figures
    FT Huffer
    And if they ever get any further releases Jumpstarters (probably FT)

    Those are my chase figures and then I'd actually be out of collecting.

    If i could do it all over, I'd stick with a legends collection. Less real estate required. Mix of magic square and newage. 3 grand could buy their whole line

    Been wanting a 90 inch OLED TV. I think nowadays it goes for about that, maybe a tad bit more.

    See I thought about that but instead went for enough coffee to ascend to a new level of consciousness.

    One really good Optimus (probably God Ginrai with all the add ons or maybe even just Earthrise Optimus) and one good Megatron (probably MMC Tyrantron) and just call it a day

    1) spend at least 500$ on display case + lights (less if available)

    2) get Fanstoys that are current and not a large markup. All of 2019. Maybe used dibots too, otherwise go with GP.

    3) takara or ko inferno, sunstreaker, datsun(s)

    If any leftover, some figma or bandai Macross toys.

    I would spend it on MP Bayformers, MP Raiden (~$1000???) or a third set of the TFC Trinity Force set or another set of the KFC Horrorcons.

    I really need to do that... 50% of what makes a TF collection to look good is how you display it!

    I'd probably buy a bunch of Iron Factory figures, some Titans, and some other legends stuff. As I run out of space (like, completely out of space) I continue to regret not collecting legends even though I prefer larger figures to smaller ones.
