    what figures are you waiting to go on clearance before they are pulled off for ROTF figures...

    for me I'm waiting for animated BA and Wreckgar cause I'm not 100% on buying them at full price...

    TFA Blurr
    TFA Blitzwing (can't hurt to have another one)
    Classics Darkwing (got the G1 version already but this repaint is excellent)

    Definately Darkwing. The repaint is so good, but I can't justify paying 30 dollars for it. I'm also still waiting for 25th prime to go down. TRU still has it at 60 bucks.

    Anything I don't own yet, which is a good sized list of some good toys, Wreck-Gar topping it, although I have yet to find him.

    TFA Ultra Magnus(original one). Really want it, but I simply I don't have the $ to buy it at full Leader class price.

    Is Wreck-Gar still in stores? I haven't seen it 'round here.

    Really, I'm pretty casual in my collecting. If I see a figure at a decent clearance price, I'll impulse-buy it ^_^

    Universe Ratchet, Powerglide.

    Those are the only ones in the stores right now that are available and i don't have. All other stores just hold Animated and very few Universe TF's. I'm not a big fan of Animated and Universe is about as close as it gets to G1 w/o going Re-Issue.

    Nothing from Animated, as I have all the ones I want. From Universe, I might pick up Treadbolt, if the price drops enough. I would say TRU-exclusive Countdown, but TRU doesn't seem to ever clearance their exclusives (despite piles of TFTM07 Blackout/Scorponok packs, Wingblade, Jetstorm and Mudflap still taking up space). I might pick up Mighty Muggs Megatron, Starscream and/or Soundwave if those go on clearance but, even if the Muggs are clearanced, I doubt any of those three will actually be left.

    With RotF, I won't be getting Breakaway, Leader Megatron or any of the ancillary merchandise until they/it go(es) on clearance.

    I never wait for something to go on clearance if I don't want it when it first comes out I don't buy it at all. I will buy items on clearance and save them to give as gifts or trade fodder. It is important to support items, especially exclusives, at full retail

    TFA Blurr - Looks enough like G1 to stand in in my collection

    Even at a clearance,the mighty muggs aren't worth it.I got Soundwave,opened it and still can't figure out why i got it.Anything over free and you are paying to much.

    Shadow Blade Megs.

    He sits there on the shelf next to his counterpart who mocks me as he's now half the price I paid for him.
