There are undoubtedly some very dedicated Transformers collectors out there and TFormers Community member "Galvatron74" is definitely up there.
This transfan has amassed almost the entire line of Generation 1 figures that came out during the 1984 - 1987 timespan.

"I have 118 Transformers with 18 being Re-issues," Galvatron writes.
"I just need a handful more to complete the 1984 to 1987 line that were actually in the TV show and movie. I do not consider the mail away toys or deluxe toys as a part of the original G1 line. Hope you enjoy."
Anything after season 4 I do not have an interest for. (Monsterbots,Seacons,Pretenders,Micromasters,etc.)
As far as G1 goes, I'm the EXACT same way.
Thanks so much!
The Monsterbots were not in the TV show nor the movie so I do not have an interest in collecting them.
I am only collecting any that were actually in the series or movie. Anything after season 4 I do not have an interest for. (Monsterbots,Seacons,Pretenders,Micromasters,etc.)
Although I do have all of the Transformers that were in the live action movie. I plan on also collecting the ones that are in ROTF that I do not already have.
I had Scorponok and Weirdwolf many years ago, but not lately. :P I sold off the majority of my collection in highschool. (sad thing is I had so many that there were about 20 favorites I kept) There are a few I wish I'd kept, but not those two.
As far as G1 toys go, I think you're missing out skipping the monsterbots. Those have to be the last ones I got as a kid I have fond memories of (I sometimes wish I'd kept Grotesque). (I stopped collecting partly because I was out growing them- or so I thought, and partly because I felt the quality of the toys was going down the crapper- and I still stand by that belief)
Thanks to everyone who commented.
I do have a few boxes for some of them and cardbacks as well.
I also have some instruction booklets and tech specs.
Most are 100% compl :con :con :con ete as well.
I am in need of just 7 more to complete my version of the original G1 line as I said I do not consider the Deluxe or mail away Transformers as really part of the original G1 line. If they were not in the show or the movie than they were not important enough! :)
I need Scorponok,Weirdwolf,Highbrow,Defensor,computron and Fortress Maximus to complete.
Nice Collection! Congratulations on almost completing your G1 collection. I'm only missing G1 TM Needlenose, Spinsiter and Reflector to complete my G1 North American collection and it feels great!
I tip meh hat to you sir awesome collection.
MISB & MOSC and I'd be blown away.
that is just... WOW!!! Great G1 collection!
