    Im more than Hyped for the film release this summer, so at 1st Im like "man I cant wait to see the figures, etc". But I kinda have no interest in them. They look pretty crappy in my ops. What do you guys think of them?

    the exact opposite. I think the toys are pretty neat, but I have little interest in the movie

    I'm super excited for both. I just have to make sure to limit myself to just one of each character in the toyline.

    hmmmm im excited for the movie but still skeptical, as far as the toys go.......dont really like real gear and i havent decided on the actual movie toys yet. ill buy one of the primes and make my decision based off that.

    bumblebee looks kinda cheap, and ironhide looks like an alt with the bot parts swapped from neon genesis, which contrasts a lot worse than the actual movie design. but i must say.......wreckage looks hawt, may buy him and call him megatron

    I'm excited for the movie, but not the toys. I like the way they look just fine, its just that I have no attachment to the characters yet.

    I'm excited by both, but not by all of the toys. Brawl, Starscream and Megatron all look disappointing to me, but I can't wait to get my hands on the road-based characters. Really looking forward to Barricade, despite his poor articulation. That vehicle mode is too good to miss!

    Very much interested in the toys and for me, after seeing their details and transforming them - it's helped create more of an interest in the movie. I'm not still too fond of some of the designs and some of the storyline, but will embrace the movie as a new take on the TF's and am now hyped for 7-4-7 :D

    The toys are far more interesting than anything released in the past lines.

    I am not overly excited for the movie itself. Very looking forward to some of the movie toys...I am hoping I'll like the movie so that I'll like them as characters like Valkysas says. Heck I might even come to like Starscream :)

    But why would they have to big as big or bigger than Alternators? Well, Leader Prime, Megatron and Brawl and Ultimate BB will be bigger.

    I have interest in both the movie and the toys. The Prime figure has grown on me considerably, he looks so cool.

    I'm buying tons of movie toys, and I plan to see the movie upwards of 10 times, or until I memorize it. Word for word.

    I'll be buying movie toys...sometime after September, I think. FOr the msot aprt, I'm going to hold off, and take advantage of clearance deals, 2 for 1s, and pre-Christmas sale. If something looks like it's going to be rare, I'll go ahead and pick it up, but most movie toylines are readily available for more than 6 months after they come out, and at a better discount. It's all part of my "I'm going to Botcon, and getting good stuff" strategy.

    -Tony!

    Or until your eyes bleed.

    I have no like for the toys. I really liked the one Leader Prime mold they showed a while back, but they changed it into the blocky one.

    I think movie will make me like the toys/designs a lot more. Seeing them in action always does it for me; it did with Energon, and that's what got me into post-G1 bots.

    But at the moment, I'm not digging the designs except for the tank and helicopter (can't remember the names).

    I'm in the excited for the movie, and not in the toys group. With the exception of megs, I like the toy more than the movie design, I think it's the fact that he has the wings on he's back still while in robot mode.
