    Okay, I have $60 to spend on TFs (Actually, $68, but the 8 goes to taxes), so which DOTM figs should I get?

    My idea:
    Voyager Ironhide
    Dlx Ratchet
    Dlx Roadbuster
    Dlx Topspin
    Dlx Crankcase

    A few things I should've clarified;
    I live in an ass-end area for hunting, the only figures I can always count on finding are BBs (which, if I get one, will be Nitro)
    Shockwave will be put under consideration
    And Leader Sentinel? Probably gonna get him with and Bday money I get or other ebay funds. My dad's contacts managed to luck an Ultimate Optimus.

    What figures do you already have from the previous movies? Do you already have an Ironhide?

    I would switch Ironhide for Megatron and maybe pick up Starscream in place of Ratchet.

    Get Shockwave. He's a fantastic figure and is a great Classics stand in.

    Oh yeah, how could I forget him? Megatron is a MUST if you don't have him already.

    lets see...

    voyager ironhide is cool but, he has some flaws.
    -his truck bed has no cover,you can see through to the floor.
    -his arms are a little strange.

    everything else is top notch!

    i can reccomend cyberverse commanders (all of them are excellent)
    deluxe barricade,crankcase,thundercracker,ratchet
    voyager maegatron skyhammer shockwave and ironhide
    human alliance basic whirl and tailpipe
    leader sentinel prime

    also if you have a ross,tj maxx or marshalls i would check those too (they carry leader starscream and other tfs for cheap!!!)

    Form your list, Topspin and Crankcase, and save the rest of money.

    Not from your list, Voyager Skyhammer, and deluxe Sideswipe is really a fun toy (I am repeating myself....).

    Ebay:
    -Megatron
    -Crankcase
    -Crankcase
    -Crankcase
    -Crankcase

    ...Kidding! Ratchet and Topspin are certainly great choices as well. Shockwave and Megatron are equally good Voyagers, depends on what you prefer there.

    I would say get the following if you can.These are some of my faves.

    Voyager Skyhammer without a doubt the best DOTM figure
    Deluxe Topspin majorly awesome figure with weaponized alt mode
    Deluxe Specialist Ratchet the definitive version for both movie and nostalgic purposes
    Instead of a deluxe I suggest Cyberverse Commander Hatchet he has the coolest dog mode
    and Walmart Deluxe Prime even tho some may disagree I really like his bot mode,plus he is a deluxe which is great.

    If you already have a Sideswipe and Bumblebee from the previous movie, then don't get them. If you don't, the regular Bumblebee and Sideswipe should be put in this list somewhere. Here are what I think you should get based on your guidelines.

    Voyager Megatron
    Roadbuster
    Topspin
    Ratchet
    Starscream

    Unless you have a Ratchet and Starscream from the previous movies, in which case they should be replaced by Crankcase and Laserbeak.

    Well, what I'm gonna do is a bit left-field. I'm going to get TF 2010 HA BB at HasbroToyShop with DOTM Voyager Megs.

    Actually a nice choice. HA Bee is not the best HA but he is still a great figure. I can agree with DOTM Sideswipe as well. While the paint is lacking the figure is very impressive.

    Do you want movie role centirc figures or just the best toys?

    Also, what are your thoughts on cybertron alt modes? Do you prefer earth alt modes.

    Simpler or more complicated transformations?

    Are you starting from scratch movie-verse wise or do you have characters already? Do you want balanced factions or not? Favorite characters?

    Do you care about scale?

    Without the answer to these questions, the recs you are going to get will be les helpful for YOU.

    Just as an FYI, I've had Shockwave, Leader Sentinel Prime and Voyager Ironhide. I've still got 'hide but not the other two.
