Hopefully I can one day elevate myself to MIB collecting, which is the pantheon of greatness. I do have a MOC Turbo Tracks and Special Ops Jazz though, so hopefully not all is lost :(

There is no such thing as "inferior" in my book, especially if you have at least one piece that has meaning to you. ;)

It's because some of us like to have something that has historical and/or financial value. Plus, there are toys that suffer from Gold/Metallic Plastic Syndrome. And... If we played with every figure ever made, we would be stuck with nothing but Bumble/Bumblebee.

And I, for one, do not want my future offspring to only recognize Bumblebee as the only Transformer in existence! :michaelbay:

Some collectors buy for value/investment, but not all. Quite the opposite, in fact, for many. Seeing toys, any toys, as a long term investment is a really risky gamble. But TransFormers? Among the worst. Unless you have a sealed G1 rarity, you're not going to make much in the big picture. I don't buy for investment value. I buy for me.

As for the Bumblebee thing...what?

I know that. It is also why I also said "historical" as well. ;)

In my case, even after I have my (currently all) Takara Tomy collection submitted to AFA, I do not plan to treat it as a 401K investment. Instead, I plan to show it to my future children and grandchildren. And I also hope to tell them who the characters are, what roles they held in what series, and more.

And besides... I am doing the entire "Takara" practice that they started in 1985, which is currently to only invest in any vintage Hasbro pieces that both interested me and were mail-away pieces.

Oh... And Bumblebee? Unless there was some event that wiped away a majority of the Bumblebee toys all over the world, he is going to ultimately become the majority character in the secondary market. And you can pretty much thank Hasbro for that. :COBRA:
