    I know the answer is obvious, but I just saw DotM for the first time. The only DotM toys I have bought before today are Deluxe Ratchet and Voyager Megatron. I wasn't planning on getting Sentinel Prime, but now that I've watched the movie, I HAVE to get him. It will be the Voyager, of course, because I want him to be the same height as Megatron and Battle Blades Prime.

    So what toys did the movie make you want to buy?

    I haven't liked the movie designs since day one. So, no, the movies didn't make me want their toys.

    I was already picking up toys before the movie and plan to keep picking toys up after seeing it. I enjoyed the movie.

    I have been buying DOTM toys before I saw the movie and will continue to buy. I would really like a Brains figure.

    It probably would have made me want to buy Laserbeak, if I hadn't already done so.

    No, I've never seen the movies. I just got into the toys for several reasons.

    One, beast transformers.
    Two, GM brand transformers.
    Three, Just happen to like the look of bot/alt mode.
    Four, Figure has a Vehicon type look and I get it for my Neo Vehicon army.

    Was always planning on getting atleast one of every onscreen character, but have been laying off things like BB, Prime, Megs, Starscream this time around, but the movie kind of makes me want to get that Nitro BB. The thing probably isn't even close to his little battle mode (or whatever it is called), but seems like a good way to mix in something new among my sea of Bumblees from the last two movies. Other than that, my plans havent changed, other than me wanting toys of the new characters to show up.

    Nah, they just look so tiny in my opinion. Plus, I didn't even really like Shockwave:crazy:

    I haven't been pleased with the smaller size of the deluxes. Watching the movie made no change in this for me.

    I did find myself wanting a leader Ironhide just a bit more, though.

    Yes.

    More importantly, it made me want to get the toys that haven't come out yet. You know, the ones of all the characters.

    It had the opposite effect on me for some characters -- the Wreckers in particular. I imagined they would have a larger role in the movie earlier on, but their late introduction, together with the fact they didn't need to be there (Jolt would have just fine), have really turned me away from getting all the Wrecker legends, deluxes, HAs, etc.

    I ended up buying Laserbeak since seeing him in the film made him less of a "what the hell is this thing supposed to be?"

    I got Leader Ironhide, but I may have done that anyway once I saw the sale.

    I bought a voyager Shockwave and few of the Human Alliance basics before I saw the movie, and now that I have seen it I want to get Leader class Sentinel Prime, HA Bumblebee (ROTF for movie accuracy colors), HA Roadbuster and Leadfoot, and HA Topspin (if it comes out). I am still on the fence on Leader class Ironhide and a leader class Optimus Prime however. That's a lot of money for the toys I wasn't planning on getting just months before.
