Ever run out of TFs to buy?


Recommended Posts

I've hit a strange plateau.  I’ve acquired almost every  that I actually want.  I have 90% of the G1 combiner’s which are my big part of what got me into collecting TFs.  Just missing Dinoking, Guard City, Battle Gaia and the Dino cassette combiners.  I’ve got my Fort Max complete minus Cog’s gun.  I’ve picked up every BW figure I want minus Terrorsaur, and I have all the figures from the Energon Trilogy that I want.  If I was a completeist I could go back and get all the figures I'm missing, but my collection is rather small because i only get figures i really like. 


It feels strange to go to the store and not even bother looking at the Toy aisle because I know I don’t care about any of the figures currently out.  And I know that I can’t currently afford any of the last few G1 guys I need so I’m in limbo.


Of course I’ve got my eyes set on the Classics line, but that’s a few months away, so all I can do is sit here and save my money, and that just feels so strange.


Anyone else ever hit this strange place?

There are still about 22 g1 figures i want and some BW toys that i am missing.  So i haven't run into this yet.  I have been out of store TFs to buy though, i mean it isn't hard to keep up with the on going lines.

For a non-G1 collecting completist like me, it seems that TFs wouldn't stop coming. Just when I was finishing Energon, Cybertron already came out with a glut of assortments. I'm very appreciative of the Titanium and Classics series arriving because it would be a quality over quantity aspect that would give me a rest and actually save money before the movie comes.

I've run out. Recently, right before Wingsaber and Soundwave were released, I had every one I wanted. Alternators is always dead for months straight.

I think I have all the older ones that I want, except for maybe a G1 Metroplex and a TM Megatron (that I've been waiting for since feb :grr).

For the love of god, YES..


My income for the next couple months is severely limited, so I am praising everything holy that I've run out of things to buy for a bit. ;-) Except.. Primus... and the gigantalonia figures. And the Titanium figs. And Alt. Optimus Prime.... And the next wave of Sigma 6....



Grr. Damn you, Hasbro.

    • Yeah he's a pretty chunky monkey! I'm hoping his bulk lends itself well to some of my future builds! 😄
    • Uh did I miss something? Where does it say that it's a partial of Huffer? It's not stated in the quote here or in the livestream. In this quote it even says that it's "ALL NEW in three molds!!!". I mean it's standing right there next to Huffer and nothing looks to be shared. Nothing can be shared either as there's nothing in common with their transformations and all their parts work differently from their hands to their knees to their ankles to their waists, arms and torsos. Cosmos' transformation looks most similar to Warpath which would explain the leakers saying that it was a retool. Even then however, they share no parts. Warpath also has what looks to be like twice the parts count from all the flaps compared to Cosmos. I take this full quote as it's completely new as he states that there's a certain budget for new molds and that Takara managed to work within that budget to get all the parts needed while only using three mold sprues. It looks it as there's not a lot of individual parts. It looks like there's one mold in green, one mold in yellow and one unpaintable mold also in yellow. Two of the three shades of green are paint, the yellow on the arms and face is paint, both shades of blue are paint, the red is paint, the silver is paint. Which makes me wonder where the flag came from. If it came from one of the molds for Cosmos then it's not white. Meaning that they also used black and white paint. That's a shit ton of colors used on just one figure. There's also quite a bit of paint on him in general.  This guy is just showing him next to one of the other "Minibots" to better get a feel for his overall size. Not to show that Cosmos is a partial of Huffer.
