My current obsession is Getting the movie versions of Optimus Prime,Megatron, Soundwave,Starscream,Ironhide,Ratchet,Jazz,Hound,Sideswipe,Scorponok,Ravage,Bumblebee,Jetfire,Thundercracker and Skywarp. These were my favorites as a kid and I love the films,so it works. What's yours?

My true obsession (and not just collection) is Beast Wars. I own nearly every single variant including certain extremely rare (we're talking only like 4 in existence rare) ones. I'm a sucker for pretty much anything 'Beast Wars' at this point and of course I'm getting all versions/variants of the Generations Beast Wars characters that are coming out (Rhinox, Waspinator, Rattrap) as well as the upcoming anniversary Takara releases of the BW Convoys.

Weapon: Battle Blades
Combiners....of each and every kind (yes, even the Energon stuff ;)) also includes every prime that combines with some one else. I love me some giant robots :D

My other obsessions are beast wars/ beast machines and Predacons from Beast Hunters (Triple Beast Collecting). Though at the moment I'm tracking down every variant of the Abominus molds. Actually I go after any TF with a beast mode now that I think about it.

My obsession when it comes to collection is not for a certain mold or character, but symmetry. I have to have equal number of Autobots and Decepticons, Primes and Megatrons, and equal number of same size figures on both sides. (As in, I have to have the same amount of Leader Class Autobots and Decepticons.) Kinda compulsive, but I like to look at a well-rounded collection. :) It's visually pleasing to me.

Customizing the MTMTE characters from the comics to toy form. And as usual, mini-cons.

I'm trying to re-create the G1 US cast using the Classics lines. As mentioned above, we are getting close, if we can find them in stores. Which, around here, has been spotty at best.
Check out my collection!

Of course I do :). But I assume you meant one for sale, right? If so, one can be found here. I've bought from those guys before and they're pretty good (that's where I got some of the more obscure Japanese Beast Wars and Japanese Beast Wars Returns stuff). That price converts to approximately $158.75.

Keep in mind that's the standard TrU Japan exclusive version, not the Lucky Draw version (the only difference between the two is that the Lucky Draw version is numbered; all paint apps etc. are absolutely identical).

Ooh, Hunter Arcee is NICE. Definitely worth the import pricing. She looks like a modern day Batcycle or something that Batman and/or Nightwing would ride.
