I have several other collections as well as Transformers, and I expect a lot of other people here do as well, although obviously they'll probably vary greatly. Some of these other collections have been ticking along since a long time before I ventured down the TF rabbit hole about 5 years ago. Since then TF's have dominated my collecting habits... not only in terms of quantity and expenditure, but also in what have been my prize purchases each year. That's been an easy feat though, as I think I started collecting at the perfect time, and the sheer number of characters and options released since 2015 has been amazing. However, as the blank spaces on the shelf have started to dwindle, those figures that are coming now, (and have been for the last year or so) are mainly B and C listers, and although some figures have been truly fantastic, they're not as "exciting" (for lack of a better word) as getting those more important characters and sets. As a result, I've found that a few things I've picked up for my other collections in 2019 have easily surpassed the satisfaction I got from any TF purchase and made them my buys of the year. They were a couple of holy grails, though. Firstly, the New Evolution metal action Pheonix from Battle of the Planets/Gatchaman. And secondly, something I've been trying to get my hands on for years, but rarely gets produced (for obvious reasons)... a 1:43 scale General Lee from Autoworld. So, have your best purchases of 2019 been TF's or did you find other gems that made you happier?
