    I don't get any movie figures. I hate those films and find the characters hideous. I'd have none of the current animated figures either, but I did get Knockout and Airachnid. So no RID or Rescue Bots. Basically, I just collect CHUG.

    I've considered getting the Knights from TLK but ultimately decided against it after seeing so many reviews of bad joint problems and parts breaking.

    I guess a better question for me would have been which lines have you kept figures from...I've dabbled a little probably from every line since Beast Wars, however I'm not sure that's considered a modern line anymore. I've just rarely kept anything over the years prior to 2008 or so. I've never bought any Power Core Combiners, Transformers Animated, Rescue Bots...and I guess that's about it. I've also skipped some Takara lines, but I can't remember all their respective names just now.

    I only got Skullgrin from POTP, not planning on buying anything else from POTP, maybe Elita-1 at most if I see it in the wild with good paint QC.

    I traded off most, if not all of my CW, and TR stuff. Just focusing on select MP and 3P now that I'm also on self-imposed austerity measures.

    Rescue Bots and Cyberverse(excluding Shockwave)

    Since Thrilling 30 I've been trying to go completist with the Prime Wars. I also got pretty much every deluxe and voyager from Age of Extinction and The Last Knight due to hype (and well paid off hype at that). Though I was selective and only got the Warrior class figures of RID15.

    I've skipped Rescue Bots and The Last Knight. I'll skip Cyberverse as well, most likely.

    I only bought one figure from NuRID, Strongarm, and only the Dinobots from AOE, so I mostly skipped those as well.

    Since starting my collection I've avoided TFA completely, only got CHUG molds released in the Movieverse lines, with the exception of Tomahawk, Sea Spray, and Deep Dive, two of whom I really regret and gave to my five year old last year. I also avoided TFP with the exception of the Legion Wheejack mold, RID got me when they released the G1 characters in their Tiny Titans line. I got all of them and have been entertaining the thought of buying more so I can do all the repaints that didn't get done. I also got Stormshot,but I'm not sure I'm going to keep him.

    Basically I've tried to stay as pure CHUG as possible, even refusing to get the A/E/C or Movie molds that were released in those lines.

    I completely skipped RiD 15' and Rescue Bots. It intend to, but still haven't picked up anything from the PotP line yet. I've only picked up one toy so far from The Last Knight.

    AOE, TLK, Thrilling 30. I skipped Combiner Wars up until last year, when I bought a combiner boxed set, Vortex and Sky Lynx.

    I have only 1 from NuRiD, 1 from Rescue Bots (bought for my son), and 1 from Movie the Best.

    Nope... I've picked up something from every line... since Car Robots/RID in 2000.

    Rescuebots, because I have kids. Playskool Gobots, because I have kids. BotShots, because I am a kid.

    Lines I never bothered with:

    Rescue Bots
    Robot Heroes
    Marvel Crossovers
    Kiss Players

    RID: Bludgeon, Blurr, Scorponok
    Masterpiece: KO Shockwave
    Last Knight: 1 step Barricade, 1 step Bumblebee
    Animated: Bumblebee, Sentinel Prime, Jetstorm, Jetfire. All gone now.
    Prime: Slicer/Wheeljack, 2 Vehicons

    I enjoyed The Last Knight, so I have figures from that line. I enjoyed Robots in Disguise, so I have figures that line. I continue to enjoy the IDW comics, and I love the Prime Wars gimmicks, so I have figures from the Generations lines.
    Really, the only thing I don't get is Rescue Bots, and even then, part of it is I haven't watched much of it.

    Its been a looooong time since I've heard that word around here, and to be honest I kind of miss it.

    Last I heard that term was back in the Transformers Animated days.

    I think the only recent line I skipped was Transformers Prime. Not because I disliked them or anything though. I think I was just focused on other things at the time, it seemed they came and went so quickly...

    Oh, Also the DOTM toyline.

    Age of Extinction is the only one I haven't bought anything from.

    Wouldn't have bought anything from The Last Knight, but Steelbane was too cool not to buy.

    AOE and Rescue Bots for me. Could have included TLK too if it weren't for that accursed Optimus vs Ravenspar legion pack. Damn you Hasbro! :shakes fist:

    Do no step/one step/two step figures count? I didn't buy any of those from anything.

    The Last Knight, RID2015, and Titans Return

    Only buying the Dinobots from POTP. MP only now, aside from an occasional mainline figure
