    There's been a few threads about what is all on our Christmas lists this year, but let's discuss what Transformers you're going to give as gifts.

    My daughter is too young (even though she always grabs ROTF Voyager Megatron) and I know she's going to be a princess anyways, so she won't be getting any TF toys this year. My nephew on the other hand is going to get War for Cybertron Bumblebee and Optimus Prime. He's a young buck just learning there's more to Transformers than the movie franchise :lol 

    He's the only family member that'll get Transformers, but I also wanna give away tome TF toys to Toys for Tots and other organizations.

    What about you guys?

    Thew, of Thew's Awesome Transformers Reviews fame, is getting a Botcon 2010 Cindersaur.

    My friend Becca is getting PCC Icepick, TFA Rodimus, TFA activator Grimlock, TFA activator Megatron, and TFA activator Bulkhead.

    It's not really a Christmas gift (this will be much nicer), but my girlfriend has wanted the core Animated Autobot cast for awhile, and I just found the last one (Ratchet) at deep discount on HTS.

    Also I got my best friend MP Grimlock for his birthday. I have a few friends who like TFs but I don't know how many other Xmas gifts I'll give out. I gave two Sideswipes to Orange Santa (UT's equivalent of TforT) last year and may do something along those lines this year.

    I didn't keep track of exactly which figures but, between RotF stuff I purchased on clearance over the summer and Hasbro's Double Your Action Giveaway, I've donated approximately 45 TFs to Toys for Tots this year; approximately 35 Deluxes, 8 Scouts and a couple of Voyagers. Hopefully they all make it to good homes.

    None of my friends/family collect, so I don't buy for them. Going through some of my "extras" right now in addition to the Double Your Action figs to give to Toys For Tots. Just grabbed an Elite Guard Bumblebee, and whatever Starwars figure was $1 at HTS to give to TFTs as well (First Starwars figure I have ever bought in my life).

    Nothing, unfortunately. All of my friends love the look of transformers, but they're "too cool" for the toys...
    More for me! :p

    Most of my KOs and a couple of unwanted figures are going to charity this Christmas. No-one I know would want them as presents.

    Thanks to Target clearances and the Hasbro giveaway, I have a ton of figures to donate to Toys for Tots.

    For my oldest nephew, I purchased the RPM's Devastator track and a bunch of RPM's to go with it. For my youngest nephew I bought some walkie-talkies that are shaped like Bumblebee and Megatron's heads.
