How Extreme Are You?

Do you collect ALL the toys that come out in a Transformers line, or do you only collect what you like?

 

My personal preference is only to collect what actually shows up in the cartoon show. I refuse to get it otherwise unless I already have done so. I pretty much learned my lesson after RiD since I completed that line.

I only collect G1 and am trying to get as much as possible (some figures are out of reach financial-wise though, like Fortress Maximus). There are exceptions to that rule: for example I don't need Wheelie :D

 

Other than G1, I sometimes buy toys from other lines. I got Fire Convoy from Carrobots, RM Starscream and i got RM G1 Convoy on the way.

 

I love Galaxy Force, but am weary of buying the toys cuz of lack of shelvespace and funds :D

Mostly what I like.

 

The main problem is the repaint syndrome. On one hand I like that Landmine and Landquake, for example, are two different characters using the same mold, but they could have done something to Landquake beyond just a simple repaint (like they did with most of G1). As it stands I would have preferred to get Quickstrike instead of Bulkhead, for example and, now I can't even find Quickstrike for less than $35.

 

 

Although, for Energon, I did pick up doubles of most of them. I thought two Inferno powerlinked or two Ironhides powerlinked (or whomever else) looked pretty cool.

Oh hush. Everyone needs Wheelie.

 

I've found that actually I've stopped buying TFs except for G1 and Binaltech, because I'm not that bothered about Cybertron at all.

 

Of course, I may change my tune once we start seeing them out here properly!!

Previously, I've only gotten what I like.

 

Unfortunately, since I like EVERYTHING in Cybertron, I've gotten "Gotta-catch-em-all" fever. @loll@

 

$162 to go on my current layaway.. then I'll have all of wave 1 but a couple basics I need to snag at TRU. :D

me too!!!

 

I'm only collecting Cybertron right now, but I plan to get everything with the name Cybertron slapped on it :) even all the exclusives

 

none of the japanese stuff though, that's all galaxy force stuff and doesn't count ;)

On original figures I'll probably get most if not all of them if I can. I don't go for that "I only get what I like" thing, because often times I'll get a figure I wasn't all that crazy about by the pictures and I'll turn out to really like it. On the flipside of that, there have been plenty of figures that I really liked when I first saw them that I was kind of so-so about once I did get them. So basically I like to give them all a chance, cuz you just never know!

 

 

Repaints are totally different. I really don't own all that many repaints and if I do get a repaint then I have to like it just as much, if not more, than the original. But even if I really do like a repaint, I usually won't go that far out of the way to get them. If I can, fine, but if not I won't lose any sleep over it. The only real exceptions are E-Ultra Magnus and Quickstrike...I HAD to get those!

RIght now I only get what I like, how ever I LIKE A LOT!! :P So I try to trim it down to my fave type stuff, which I usualy judge by color & what I think looks good in general...

 

& I tend to get most of the BT's, reissues, & exclusive tf stuff that I can, even if I don't really like like them ... I'll only skip stuff from those lines if I think it looks REALLLY ugly :P Or I am low on cash & need to be more selective...

I only collect show characters. I sometimes go Extreme because show accuracy plays a big part in my collections, so I often pay higher prices for imports because they are more show accurate(Armada Tidal Wave,ect..). Extreme at times because I buy every character on the show regardless of how little screentime or sucky toys they have. I have evry show character in every line from RID to now.
