    that I need to get the FOC deluxe figures. I already have the G2 Bruticus preordered from Amazon. I almost got the FOC wave 1 last week, but returned them after seeing how small they were. But now I need someone to fight Bruticus..LOL

    So what do I do.

    Either you want them or you don't. Save your money and go after something you want, don't just throw it away.

    :lol 

    Well, if you're really after the WfC/FoC aesthetic, personally if it were up to me, I'd hunt down the older WfC figures like Prime, Bumblebee and Cliffjumper. They're better figures to me than the new FoC Prime and Jazz.

    If you're not that picky, I think the Classic Autobots can fit in without a problem if you need some cannon fodder :)

    I'd pass - in fact I DID pass. Prime and Shockwave are too friggin small for the price point. Jazz looked ok, but I didn't want him to be alone, so I passed on him too.

    just do this if you don't already have wfc figures. that tru 3 pack with prime, megs and bb is a good starter set, as well as the tts united black prime/megs pack that I think is being discounted at most online retailers atm.

    He needs Autobots though, so the United Black Prime/Megs, as nice as they look, aren't what he's after :)

    This. Besides if you wait a while they'll start showing up loose complete in Junkion/Ebay for much more reasonable prices, or go on clearance at BBTS.

    The holiday sales will also bring the prices down a bit.

    I got Shockwave but passed on Optimus and Jazz. Like the WFC Optimus better, and the RTS Jazz is all I need.

    thank you, i hate questions like these, it always sounds like some one who already made up their mind and then trying to troll and find fault with opinions provided. kinda hard to work up enough effort to try to convince some one when we have no stakes in whether hasbro sells an additional unit or not.

    Yeah, these things are pretty underwhelming. If this is really where hasbro is heading, it won't be long before collectors are only buying MP and 3rd party.

    Come on man, be a sport! I think the majority opinion is stay away till either some more stuff in this line, or till they are clearanced that getting them is a no-brainer.

    You don't actually want them. They'll be easy to get for a while yet if you change your mind.

    they're first wave, you can still find first wave dotm on the shelves... wait for clearance if you still want them by then. the quality on them leaves a lot to be desired

    You might want to pick up the Takara versions. They at least look a lot nicer.
