What figures would you consider 'most needed' if you wanted to, somehow, 'finish' your collection?

    Gimme proper Headmaster versions of Nightbeat, Minerva and Siren, a proper Targetmaster Quake, a proper G2 Deluge (though I just might use that 'con Mirage they released recently) and a Nautica, Victorion and RiD2001 Daytonus, and with those (as well as getting an already existing Blitzwing, Battlechargers, Rattrap and Wreck-Gar), I would retire myself from collecting (I may buy stuff here and there, but not that much).

    BUT PLEASE, HASBRO... NO FUCKIN' EXCLUSIVES! I COULDN'T GET NAUTICA LAST TIME 'CUZ OF THAT! :mad

    The upcoming Tracks.... that's it... last one that I consider "needed".

    Anything else would be about "that's nice"....and would have to be freaking amazing.

    Metroplex, Tidal Wave would be about all that I can think off.

    Anything else new or that would be a new version of anything I already have would have to be mind blowing (and better than the one I already have).

    I started collecting mid-POTP, & I have to say, thanks to WFC, I was able to get a lot of my wants; once I get my hands on Artfire, toy Galvatron, & Pipes, I'm pretty good.

    However, one of my big wants from the beginning has been Goldbug, preferably with his own mold. I would certainly love the other Throttlebots as well.

    This wasn't a problem until Earthrise, but since they seem to be re-doing the minibots, a G1-accurate Cosmos high on my list. One of my absolute favorite characters from G1, so to get an official CHUG version would just make me very happy. TR Cosmos was the first transformer I picked up when I started, so I would be okay ending with an update.

    I started with Siege. I did pick up all the combiners and a few other figures from the previous trilogy. So my top 10 most wanted figures (not counting the ones we know are coming this year like Gnaw and Slag are:

    Metroplex
    Blaster
    Preceptor
    Blitzwing
    Skids
    Sandstorm
    Snarl
    Fort Max
    Hound (Earth mode)
    Broadside

    but I will happily take all the G1 characters like mini bots and insecticons.

    Terrorsaur, Tarantulas, Quickstrike, Inferno, & Rampage for the Predacons.

    I'm a Bayverse collector so finish off the main casts from every Bay movie then I'll be happy. So we're looking at; Skids, Mudflap, Demolishor, Que, Hatchet, Crosshairs, Hound, Car Drift, Knight Prime, Slug, Scorn, Strafe, Lambo Hot Rod, a better Mercedes Drift and TLK Bumblebee would be nice but probably not happening, Hooligan, Onslaught, Galvatron, Knight Megatron, Lambo Hot Rod, and TLK Barricade.

    In terms of other continuities, I'd like a full cast of BW Seasons 1-3 at the very least and for G1 stuff if it looks neat I'll get it.

    I think I want those earth mode lambo's, Mirage and Hound.

    I hope Hasbro reissues the ER Coneheads.

    I'd love a new commander Optimus and a new Shockwave.

    Also I am wishing on a star for a good accurate Megatron from a 3p company.

    Other than that; Blaster and his cassettes, maybe Skids, Deluxe Insecticons, new Constructicons, new Headmasters, the second year Headmasters, Sureshot, Pointblank, Quake, Needlenose, Star Saber, Deathsaurus, Lio Kaiser.

    Transmetals.

    I'd love to see new versions of all the combiner teams and more late G1 characters.
    I also would like to buy better articulated versions of my favorite UT toys, but all of that is gravy.

    If nothing else I need to complete the first G1 checklist, whether by Vintage or Reissue, and complete the NA G1 Combiners and Citybots. So 19 figures over all.

    Remaining figures:

    Skywarp, Cliffjumper, Windcharger, Wheeljack, Trailbreaker, Ironhide, Ratchet, Jazz, Sideswipe, Bluestreak, Prowl, Trypticon, Nautilator, Snaptrap, Tentakil, Motormaster, Wildrider, Deadend, and Breakdown.

    I could easily add in completing the Headmasters, Targetmasters, Deluxe Insecticons, Powermasters, Pretenders, Micromaster bases, etc. But that’s how they get us dammit!

    Right now for G1 I pretty much have all of the Decepticons I want between the Prime Wars and War for Cybertron lines so I don't feel the need for new Insecticons, Dinobots, Blitzwing, or Stunticons.

    I'm really focusing on finishing up my collecting right now so my list right now is:
    Blaster, I have never had a figure of this character and I think he should be in my collection before I can complete it.
    Along with the heavily rumored Wreak-Gar, Pipes, and Slammer to finish out my G1 Autobots.

    As for Beast Wars Tigatron is another one of my favorite characters that I have never had a figure of so I'm really hoping that him being in the last wave of Kingdom holds true and completes the season 1 Maximal cast. I also of course want Taratulas, Terrorsaur, and BW Inferno to finish up the season 1 Preadcon team.

    After that, I guess the Quickstrike, Silverbolt, Rampage, Depth Charge, Dinobot 2, and Tiderhawk to finish out the whole Beast Wars cast.

    Overall though the list of characters that I feel I need figures of just keeps getting smaller and smaller so it is starting to feel like I only have a few more figures left to really go after. Especially with my very precise style of collecting.

    The rest of the Targetmaster Autobots and Decepticons that need updates

    CHUG Voyager or Leader Lugnut

    Whatever IDW Wreckers need updates

    If I take the title literally and consider the figures I most need to feel complete, I would say Studio Series Hatchet and Dino (I have him on pre-order so that will be resolved soon).

    If I had to stop collecting after getting those two I would be pretty content.


    If I expand a little bit more and consider figures that I would like to aquire to round out my collection I would say:

    Studio Series:
    • Grindor
    • Sideways
    • ROTF Sideswipe
    • DOTM Protoforms (Probably won't happen)
    • 3rd Party Devcon

    Older figures I missed:
    • DOTM Legends/Cyberverse Sideswipe
    • Takara First Edition Prime Bumblebee
    • PRID Soundwave
    • Iron Factory Sideswipe
    • 4Ever Studio DMK Optimus Prime
    • MISB Studio Series Sideswipe (I own 2 copies but I want one in package for posterity sake)

    Other figures that would be cool if they happened:
    • Movie Masterpiece Sideswipe

    If I owned everything on this list I would be a very happy collector and would be perfectly content to call it quits. That definitely won't happen because I'll always find some excuse to come back into collecting but it's nice to think of it coming to an end.

    I’m anxiously awaiting the XTB Omnibots, and I’m also interested in XTB’s take on Streetwise and First Aid (and possibly Hot Spot).

    I’d also like to have a 3P MP-scale Gears that doesn’t slavishly try to imitate the cartoon model. Badcube’s version doesn’t quite satisfy.

    Well there's a few I know that are beyond me. A complete Constructicon team continues to elude me for some reason, by never showing up. Black Shadow is a bit outta my price range. A full Rainmaker team seems iffy. I had the worst luck with Greenlight. Aside from custom fodder;

    Cyclonus
    Sun Storm
    Wild Rider
    Kup
    Perceptor
    The styracosaur fossilizer

    I'm kinda hoping Flames Toys will finally give us this guy via one of their model kits.
