I have 40ish figures that i have collected over 3 years. My collection method would be considered odd to most people on here. I grew watching Beast Wars and loving Transformers toys. For the sheer price, I couldn't try collecting only Beast Wars. So what i do is just get the ones that i think are cool. When a new line comes out i just pick through the ones that i like. I also usally pick up any CHUG figure that i find on sale and any figure that i come by at yard sales, even if i don't particular because they end up in my fodder bin . My point is, i keep my collecting for the most part cheap and i wanted to see if anyone else was a Cheapformer like me.
