    The only Takara TFs I own are Masterpiece Movie Starscream and Henkei Starscream. Everything else is either Hasbro-made or third-party.

    At a guess I'd say around 20%. TFC reissues, some Japanese only G1s, a smattering of Henkei, E-hobbys, random exclusives and such. Maybe a little higher, it's hard to say.

    I currently have nine Takara made figs out of over 200. My rule for Takara vs. Domestic Hasbro releases is that the Takara must either not be available from Hasbro (Robot Masters Seekers, Headmasters/Masterforce/Victory, etc) , or that the deco is so markedly different that it justifies the import prices (Henkei Astrotrain, Henkei Megatron, ehobby Diaclone reissues). As it stands, even marginally better paint jobs, like the Henkei line, weren't so different to justify the cost. If it wasn't for Renderform's Goldbug head, I wouldn't even entertain the thought of chasing down United Bee. Henkei Legends Gong/Brawn is an exception solely because he came with CLiffjumper.

    looking aroung my collection I have around 70 or so Henkei/eHobby/etc... Takara releases. Im not, sure how many total figures I own because there are probably 100 or so still packed in the closet, unopened. So Im also not sure of the ratio.

    All Hasbro stuff because my budget for this hobby is just way too small to afford Takara or third party releases.

    I think I can list my Takara figures because there are so few of them.

    BW
    Tigertron
    Black Arachnia
    X-9 Ravage

    RID
    Korean Fort Max

    MP
    Prime
    Megatron
    Greenscream
    Skywarp
    Rodimus
    Grimlock

    Alts
    Red Alert

    Armada
    Final Battle Prime
    Tidalwave

    Energon
    Deluxe Prime w Kicker

    Cybertron
    Deluxe/Voyager Starscream

    Thats it out of close to 1000 figures. I do need to add Animated Blackout and the Winged Prime but I am still holding on to dying hope that hey will see American releases.

    Mostly Hasbro. I have Takara Masterpeces, Alternities and some Henkei release but that's about it. Unless it won't be release stateside or there's a HUGE difference, I'll choose to buy at retail over importng every time.

    Currently 227 TF's in house (couple in my PoL, but not counting those yet), of which about a third are Japanese Takara products. I also have a couple of Korean (Beast Wars Neo, RiD) figures. One of the 'perks' of living in Europe is that local distribution of TF's is so terrible that I need to import almost everything, and for me, importing from the US (Hasbro) is just as expensive as it is from Japan (Takara).

    0.5% Takara. I have the Galaxy Force versions of Dirt Boss and Brimstone, and I only have those because I was able to get them ~10 each.

    Much less than 10% Takara, probably even less than 1% Takara. The only Takara items I have are some reissues, a few figures from Energon and Cybertron, two Masterpieces, one Animated figure, one Henkei figure and two United figures.

    I think I only own 6 Takara figures (2010 Predaking, Car Robots Black Convoy, Hybrid Style Convoy, Lio Convoy, D.J., and Motor Arm)
    So less than 10%.
    Most Takara figures that I do want come with a rather high price just for some better paint aps. Not really worth it, IMO.

    I'm going to say my collection is 12.4% Takara, 87.6% Hasbro, but remember I is not too good with the maths. Eight Binaltechs, three Car Robots guys, Alternity Starscream, Henkei Megatron, and a whole mess of SCF figures.
