With The War for Cybertron trilogy making some really nice pieces, a lot of the older CHUG-style 3P toys are seeing some serious competition for their shelf space. Similarly, as the Masterpiece line expands, 3P offerings might see better competition. I'm not trying to start a discussion on which figures are better. Instead, I got to thinking - which figures am I going to keep, even when the new figures are better? FansProject Warbot Defender and City Commander both leave a lot to be desired next to Siege Springer and Ultra Magnus. I've already decided to replace them on my Season 3 shelf. However... I've got some attachment to them, with each being a "first" and being responsible for seriously getting me into collecting. My solution for them is that I've got a FansProject shelf, where City Commander, Defender, Trianix Alpha, Steelcore, Parallax Armor Optimus, and others can go, by my Wreckers. It helps that they've got a sort of connection to that, since a number of my regular Wreckers also come from FP. It got me thinking about what other figures I plan on keeping. There are arguably better Devastators than Hercules, but I've kept him because of his "first" status as well. I really love the FP Dinobots, so it's unlikely that I'll be replacing them (though I might get some future Hasbro Dinobots if they're good enough - can you really have too many?) What 3P figures do you have an attachment to that you won't give up?
