    I know we have a few months…but I am getting antsy on picking up an animated Starscream. Then it hit me…

    Since the animated series toys are all new molds and designs for our favorite toys, are most of you collectors and completionists going to collect em’ all?

    Originally I was only planning on picking up Prowl, Soundwave, Lugnut, Megatron, and Blitzwing. Now I want them all. Damn this obsession!

    I was origionally planning on being a completionist with the line, but with so many different versions of some of the characters, I'm going to limit myself to one of each character. If I get all the TF's I plan to get from the Animated and Universe lines, I'll almost double my collection by the end of this year.

    Probably won't try to complete the line. I think I might just stick to one of each character. I plan on waiting for the Leader sized Bulkhead due to him being better as far as scale goes. The only mulitiples I might have is Prime and Megatron as I kind of like the two pack, and I plan on also getting the larger versions of both.

    Maybe Megatron and Soundwave but that is basically it. I really don't want the rest of the figures.

    I plan on buying as many figures as I can afford(maybe even a couple activators).

    Although I'll have make sure I keep some cash in reserve for Ultra Magnus.

    I'm going to try to limit myself to buying only the figures that appear in the series. I'll be buying two of each though (1 for MISB and one to play with) so my wallet will cry either way.

    I've only really been a completionist with the classics line, but most of the time I try to pick up one of each character. I'm definitely waiting for Leader Bulkhead and Megs, too.

    one of each character for myself too. It worked well with the TF Movie line so I might as well continue the practice.

    I want leader bulkhead, and anyone else that the headmaster fits on. :) 

    I'll probably end up getting 1 of every other character as well

    Anyone think we'll have a repaint subline at the tail end of the toyline with the word "power" in it?

    I personally don't think we will. Especially since there most likely won't be any hesitation to get the sequel and it's line out. This is one line I actually don't see having too many repaints in it, as the characters seem to be more indevidualized than in past lines. That and not even all characters on the show will be getting toys, so that cuts out any non-show character's ending up in the toy line, and so far the only repaint that we know of that'll come from show characters is Ironhide, and even at that he would still end up getting a new head.

    Ebay:
    i used to be a completist, but now i'm gonna pick up one of each. So that means i won't have 5 Animated Primes...just one. Maybe pick up the Cybertron mode one to turn into Kup.

    Probably I'll get one of each mold. There are some molds that I really don't like, so I won't buy them, and the ones that appeal to me the most, I'llend up buying 2 of each.

    With aaaaall these Animated toys, that I hate because I can't stand the designs, I am completely sure I will not buy anything.

    It's great opprotunity to get some SUperlink/Enerogn Autobots or getting a hard-to-find figure for my toehr collections.

    I spent more than enough time hanging out in the ebay forum lately... I'm not sold on everything yet, but Peaugh, OS, and the other peoples down there have really turned my opinion on the line.

    So far I have Starscream and BB (to arrive soonly).
    I'd like to get: Earth Prime, Bulkhead, Leader Megatron (unless the articulation is as bad as the pics made it look), Prowl, Lockdown, Soundwave, Blitzwing
    Maybe: Rachet, Oil Slick

    Gotta stay out of the ebay forum. It's too dangerous for me and my finances.
