I'm 32 - coming up 33. Collecting anything is an interesting little pastime. The reasons for doing it could be very simple, or quite complex - but one thing is certain - they are all unique. I have let go of over 300 Transformers in the past year, while forming my collection into something that I actually want, rather than just getting anything that may be released with the logo on it to fill boredom/times of uncertainty or a burning sense of nostalgia. I can now easily recall which TF's I have in my collection, and they all have some kind of significance/relevance. I still have a bit of money to spend until I get what I want, but should happily be able to call it quits once I have my desired G1 cartoon characters (the problem is when new/updated/'perfect' versions of favourites are released.) Strangely, I'd recommend selling/gifting a few if you are having doubts about it or feel like you need to justify getting anything else. It's quite a cleansing experience! I've given away dozens of Transformers to nephews (and my niece), as well as my friend's son. I don't miss them at all. Also - as the old saying goes, life is not a dress rehearsal. Do what makes you happy now, because we're a long time dead!
