    What figure, no matter the time or limitations, you will still like regardless?.
    Something that you may even have in your grave.
    Be nostalgia, context, etc.

    Probably my Cybertron Megatron. I've had him from childhood and he's still in great shape, he's such a well made toy. MMC Carnifex is another that I'd have a hard time letting go, same with T30 Springer. I don't plan on parting with my collection any time soon though.

    Well I'd already decided I'm literally being buried with Armada Hot Shot because he's my first ever Transformer so that's one. Universe 2.0 Hound is irreplaceable to me, no update will ever send him out the door. I saved for a long time to preorder APS01-U Dark of the Moon Optimus for $270 when I was like, 14 in high school and never regretted it. Those guys aren't going anywhere. Only others I can think of are the rest of my Armada guys. Maybe Combiner Wars Alpha Bravo, Rook, and Offroad too. Love those guys.

    Just one would be very hard, but it would have to be either my Cyberjet Hooligan for being my original, or R-blade (Jetfire) variant because of it's colours.

    Or

    RID Windblade (masked)

    As either are "my" Macross crossover figures and probably the ones that I've played with the most for many years and still love them to death.

    My Animated Wingblade Optimus Prime. He's my holiest of holy grails, and a great toy to boot.

    Universe Countdown, due to an infamous combined fan-mode I made of him using Universe 2 Sunstreaker, Red Alert, and Wheeljack, RTS Tracks, and HFTD Breacher.

    I could probably name more. Any of the 2015+ combiners not counting extra members. Anything I've customized too since by principle it would be hard to get rid of even if I didn't want it anymore.

    As someone who had his entire childhood toy collection "accidentally" donated. Nothing is going anywhere and neither are my son's.

    2002 New Years Convoy Reissue is my number 1.
    2002 God Ginrai reissue is number 2.
    2001 G1 Megatron 16 Special Reissue is number 3.

    These are the guys I wanted as a kid in the 80's and never got so once the reissues came it got me back into collecting.
