Re: POLL: Do you collect G1 figures?

i have all my originals which was a lot but i havent touched them in more then 15 years im guessing. maybe more. they are mostly all in mint shape... so i guess you can say i (have) a G1 collection. but do i want to buy or will i ever buy any of the ones im missing.. probably not. no real interest in G1 now a days. the toys are pretty much crap compared to the engineering they have now which is understandable of course.

Re: POLL: Do you collect G1 figures?

I would say not really. Not because I don't want them, they are just harder to find in good condition without costing me an arm and a leg like that blasted Trypticon I want so badly

Re: POLL: Do you collect G1 figures?

I did collect G1 - back in 1984-1987. I haven't purchased a single G1 figure since.

Does that count?

Yes, it is a "collection" that you made the choice not to continue or done with.

I have at least every on screen g1 figure from Season 1, 2 and 3 except 5. Lots are reissues, I have almost every Encore, TFC book style collection and a few high quality "reissue" Knock offs.

Re: POLL: Do you collect G1 figures?

I had an impressively sized collection once, been cutting it back mostly replacing G1 figures with their Classics counterparts. There's only so much you can do with the G1s and eventually you tend to feel a bit repetitive with how you display them, especially with the limited articulation.

That being said I have kept a few pieces, and I did just get Fortress Maximus who I feel is well worth the price of admission.

A smaller collection is still a collection after all, doesn't matter how big or how many older figures you have. Most of them were re-issues anyway, with very few vintage.

So I guess my answer has to be no, not actively collecting, but do have a small collection. Which I wouldn't technically say I'm collecting G1, I have collected, and may get other choice pieces in the future should I desire it, but there isn't much going on at the moment.

Re: POLL: Do you collect G1 figures?

Answered no.

Sold every one of my original G1s and Reissues. They were mostly in boxes anyway. I decided i wanted to display my collection out of box so I go into masterpieces and 3Ps.
