    This.

    I've skipped a bunch of Universe figz/molds just because I'm not feeling them. December/January is going to be killer on my bank account. All those new Universe Deluxes/Voyagers and all the new Animateds. I secretly cannot wait to watch the dollars disappear.

    The only thing I'm collecting from Universe is the new molds from Classics 2.0. If it's a repaint from a previous A/E/C line I'm skippin' it. The one exception might be the Springer and Rat Bat repaint two pack. Other than that, the only figures I have to collect in the coming months are Hound, Cyclonus, and Inferno. My Wallet is pretty lucky. Unless there are new Classics I don't know about. I will be getting Smokescreen, but I believe he is the last G1 figure in this line untill it's hiatus. I hope I'm wrong though, I would love to see a Wheeljack along with some other figures.

    Universe FTW!!!

    Animated was an easy pass for me! The show is certainly entertaining enough but I just couldn't get with the feel of that style with the rest of my TF collection. I've been getting the G1 Classics 2.0 figs a a few Cybertron repaints provided it is a cool mold and nice paintjob. I will definitely be getting the Roadbuster/Dirge 2-pk since I don't own the voyager size Cybertron Starscream mold.

    The remaining G1 Classics 2.0 figs left to come out so far are
    Cyclonus w/ NIghtstick
    Hound w/ Ravage
    Starscream
    Smokescreen
    Inferno
    SE Overkill
    SE Dragstrip

    They haven't announced it yet but I would bet on Universe Ratchet from the Ironhide mold. You can even see on Ironhide where the lightbar for Ratchet will be.

    I told myself no at the beginning, and it hasn't been that hard resisting. I probably won't get any of the stuff out now, but I might get stuff from the 25th line though.

    Personally, I collect some from both lines, though more from Universe than Animated (not saying one is better than the other though). I pretty much knew from the beginning that there would be a certain amount of figures I would eventually get from each line. Although I have decided to get less of Animated than I at one point planned to, and more of Universe than I at one point planned to.

    I'm buying mostly just the G1 inspired deluxe figures in the Classics 2.0 line, with the exception of any A/E/C repaints. The only thing larger I was going to buy was Onslaught, but I never seen him at retail.

    I'm buying nearly all of the deluxes in Universe, and most of the Voyagers and Ultras (so far, at least). I think I've already bought all my Animated toys, the Dinobots, Leader Megs, and Ultra Magnus. When Universe goes on hiatus for the movie, I will be a sad panda, but I will also be saving a fair amount of money!

    I sold all my Classics at Botcon last year. This year, I saw Universe and now picked them all back up.

    man i love this line so much it is how i always saw how the G1 figs would look. this line took me back to the 80s and got me back in to TFs. this is the only line i collect .I did get a few of the titanium line. though they are just not as good as classics.

    To bad they will be put on hiatus for the movie line. Witch sucks big time. They better bring it back with some killer charters in the first 2 waves. So they can get more ppl in to them.

    Universe is awesome. But once we get Jazz and Wheeljack, I'll be done with any autobots. I'll still by new G1 Decepticons though.

    Dammit, between this, Masterpieces, and Animated, I stay having something to buy. I'm going to get to 200 figures alot faster than I wanted to :D

    ^ True Dat. Jazz and Wheeljack may not make an appearance until late 2009, more likely 2010 though. :(  Damn movie toys.

    I agree here, but there hasn't been a Universe specific mold I don't really like. At this point, I have picked up all the new universe molds and the only ones I've skipped have been the Cybertron repaints. I have been able to skip a lot of animated though. They all seem to have something cool about them, but the truth is there are some molds that are just forgettable.
