    So, I know Hasbro tends to cater to... the Anti-Bayformer Brigade. (A.B.B.). Quite a bit, C.H.U.G. and RTS being an obvious way to keep the old fans in.

    But as all of us know. Dark of The Moon is coming out on July First (I think?) and we are going to very shortly have the figures that are probaly either going to sell like pound-cakes or shelf-warm forever... (and sit in a warehouse when three years later you decide to buy it at half price/get repainted so nobody will no the difference... genius plan, genius, the kids will never know.)

    Either way... I... Can't remember the point of this thread... I uh... RIGHT!

    What exactly are the A.B.B's going to do during this long haul of spindly robots? I mean, for the first two movies there has been a scout line to cater to the guys that don't really dig the movie aesthetics, but this time around. All we have is Human Alliance Scouts. So. Besides saving loads of money, what exactly are we supposed to do until then?

    Also, does anybody else think that the Generations toys that didn't make it, are going to show up in DOTM packaging?

    I will wait for the trickle down effect to happen where all the stuff that just recently was announced as cancelled/on hiatus meanders its way to the shelves. Past that, scouring the planet for ONE. FUCKING. WRECK GAR.

    Buy GI Joe? :thumbs2: 

    That's what I'm going to do. This is going to be a GOOD YEAR for GI Joe fans, that's for sure.

    I'm sure I'll still be hunting Windcharger and Warpath. Le sigh...

    After that I'll be catching up on the Gundam models I've wanted from the past year.

    Well... I like every kind of Transformer, because let's face it, they're all awesome. However, they really aren't coming out with too many great TFs this movie. So I'll be buying Star Wars: The Clone Wars and Nintendo 3DS games until the G.I. Joe Renegades and Transformers Prime toys come out!

    Since I won't be buying anything DOTM, I've re-focussed my attention towards the gaps in my G1 collection. In the past month alone, I've already spent $1500-$2000 on G1s. Oh this DOTM-period is definitely not gonna be cheap for me... :lol

    Same as usual.. No TFS I want, but more Warhammer and books and finish sorting out the house! I did the same thing for last 18 months hardly bought anything, then when RTS hit UK I had a big splurge, and aint bought anything TF related for a few weeks now.

    So though I like some movie figs, with distribution issues I expect my bookshelf to get bigger and my house to get nicer lol

    No DotM toys for me AT ALL, so I'll be buying new Star Wars Lego sets, Pirates of the Caribbean Lego sets. And perhaps a couple of G1 TF's and FP's Insecticons, and MMC's new Hearts of Steel inspired Transformers.
