    Survey, because the disagreement came up as to whether certain lines were collected by younger or older people.

    Please vote your age group, and whether you mostly collect movie toys, G1/CHUG/Masterpiece, or some other line (TFPrime, Rescue Bots, whatever). Sorry I can't offer more options, the polls on this site only allow 13 options.

    Mainly Classics/MP but I have a very respectable Alternators/Binaltech/Alternity collection along with a TFPrime collection as well.

    Edit: I guess have a couple figures from the movie lines (I do love me some ROTF Leader Optimus), a bit of KREO, and a handful of Animated figures as well but it's not really what I mainly focus on.

    I had a tough time voting. I'm 24 years old and collect a wide range of lines (Movie, G1, Generations, Masterpiece, Prime, Third Party). I voted 19-24 and mostly Classic/G1/Masterpiece toys as that would be my primary focus if/when I continue to scale back.

    35 and I don't restrict myself when it comes to toys. If it's fun, it's fun.

    I wish there was multiple choice because I collect from multiple lines.

    Age is 28

    There is not, but I asked for which line do you primarily collect. If it comes down to it, if you had to keep one set, while the other was burned in a fire, which one would you keep?

    38, and I guess it'd have to be "mostly others". RID, UT, Animated, Prime, BH. Though I do also collect Classics/Generations, AOE, the occasional pre-AOE movie fig, and have some vintage and reissue G1, and a couple MPs.

    26 years old and the only full line I actually collect is the Masterpiece line.

    If this was a few years ago, it probably would've been the movie figures. I of course collected Masterpieces since they began, but there were so few at the time, back then it was definitely mostly movie figures.

    I do still buy a few here and there from other lines (like the Generations Beast Wars figures) but that's about it.

    I would say that G1 takes priority but I already have so many that CHUG is what I currently collect. But I also collect a handful of figures from plenty of other series.

    35.

    I mostly have movie toys but am currently only collecting CHUGs and MPs as I really don't like the AoE line.

    So I ticked G1/CHUG/MP.

    39 I chose "30+ and mostly collect other lines" since it was TFPrime that started my collection. I have a large MISB and Loose TFPrime collection that I love. I repurchased the few G1's I had as a kid, but don't collect G1. I pick up a few Generations/IDW figures that I like, but don't have/want a CHUG Collection. I do collect Masterpiece and if I had to choose between TFPrime and MP the choice would obviously be MP. Thank the AllSpark that I don't have to choose.
