KEEP! OR SELL?

For all the lines not covered in our themed forums. Think Thundercats, Ghostbusters, Voltron, Wrestling, Doctor Who, Power Rangers, Video Game Licenses, TV & Film Licenses... do I need to go on or did you have it figured out before I even started?

Definitely did not miss out on MP Grimlock!!! =)

The I think the only reason I would want Energon Grimlock would be to add it to the shrine.

I've been fairly selective with my Soundwaves, actually. I've passed on the vinyl figures, the Kre-Os, and suchlike. Sometimes, they're too hard or expensive to track down (like Movieverse Soundwave in G1 colours or the SoundBlaster repaint of same), and I move on with my life. Maybe they'll be easier to get later on, I dunno. MOTUC is taking up most of my collecting budget these days . . . .

THIS.

I never got any of the Mighty Muggs and thankfully the Kreons don't really appeal to me. I never picked up any of the movieverse Soundwaves or the Prime:RID. If he shows up at Five Bel°w I might, but I wasn't about to pay $15 for that guy. I did want to pick up a ROTF Ravage at one point but never found one at the right price.

Energon Grimlock predates the Masterpiece by several years. MP Grimlock is one of my all time favorite action figures. Not just Transformers, but action figures.

I'm trying to make way for Castle Grayskull by selling stuff off for some extra cash (should have started this a year ago, but I guess I didn't really feel the pressure until recently) and to de-clutter.

So I got another one --- Transformers Classics Nemesis Prime. I ordered him from HTS years ago when he was available and has been a pretty nifty item in my collection. I had considered selling him a couple years back and he has since been boxed up. I decided to free him from his prison and sorta fell in love with him again. I like the mold (also have Optimus Prime and Ultra Magnus) but I'm not in love with it. I'm also not really a huge Nem Prime fan, i.e. I don't collect every single offering of Nem Prime. I wouldn't consider him an essential part of my collection, I really only have fondness for TFs who actually appeared in the cartoon, but nonetheless he's a cool character and a nice toy.

This one I'd waffle on. I like the Nemesis Prime/Black Convoy/Scourge concept, but Hasbro/Takara have taken it to far by adding a black Prime repaint to almost every line. If it were me, I'd keep it. This was a pretty good mold, but, if you already have it in other colors an no real affinity for the character, it sounds like you don't need him taking up real estate in your collection.
