    WST figures; still one of my favorite desk toys.
    I still need to track down a few.
    Edit: Legions/Commander TF Prime figures.

    For third party it has to be PE-DX03 Warden; he is the one figure that sent me head first down the 3rd party rabbit hole.

    For G1 is has to be either Jetfire/Skyfire or Hound; very difficult to pick just one.

    The absolute take to my grave are my Diaclone Downshift, Overdrive, and Camshaft aka Double Changers. They did not make very many and they were mail order (the old school kind where you put it in the actual mail) with the little point cards you cut out of the back of the packaging of the other off the shelf figures. Those were the days.

    I have no plans to let my BW MPs or my MPMs go any time soon, since they're the best iterations we've gotten of the characters (well, mostly), but if I had to get rid of everything but one, RotF Buster Optimus Prime would be the one I keep. Thing is just beautiful to this day. Second runner up would be my Screen Battles: First Encounter Barricade. That was the first figure I ever got when I started collecting and it holds that sentimental value for me.

    I guess you should have stated very clearly... the "one/single" figure (as per if you were on a deserted island, what's the one figure that you'd want with you).. as I'm seeing way too many "my whole collection" (or close to it) responses which kinda defeats the question.

    My Hasbro MP-10. He's the odd man out in pretty much every collection now, but nothing else captures the essence of Optimus Prime for me...and Prime may be my most favorite fictional character.

    Beast Machines Mirage, I didn't even know I had watched BW or BM til I found it and the memories came flooding back. Armada Starscream and Prime, Energon Optimus Prime, because they were my first Transformers. My family spent serious money that they didn't have to. I noticed that as a kid, Prime and Starscream have been my favorite characters since.

    TLK Leader Megs. My first actual Megatron, and also his overly flamboyant customizing has made him a waste to throw away. Bronze and Gold Markers, and the natural weathering makes him look really royal and dynamic.

    I mean, why would you get rid of him? Like, 400 dollars down the drain if you did. When you die, put him inside the tombstone with a little engraving that shows his shape.

    Ohh if I get the chance I'd gladly upload my mind into a computer and fully become a digital being so I can have all of eternity to learn and study the secrets of the universe. To study all forms of science without the need for food or sleep, To be devoid of all limitations like emotions, it is the only logical step.


    But back to the figures Dotm drag strip is not one of those figures he aged poorly when I got him out of the package when he came out.

    I'm sure I'd keep my windblades And knights of unicron set

    Can’t decide between my MP-36 or my Fanstoys G2 Grimlock. The answer would alternate on different days.
