    Myself, I was just planning on getting the 3 new deluxe autobot cars, Skids, Mudflap, and Jolt as well as human alliance BB. Well I got Prime and both Bumblebees today and saw the motherload of figures at walmart. They had Ravage, Fallen, Mixmaster, and pretty much everything else.

    So I pose this to you, how are you stopping yourself from getting them all?

    For me, at least I remember all the bad figures. Sure some of the ones I want are bad. But I look at Mixmaster, who looks great in truck mode and check the back. His robot mode looks terrible. Soundwave I hear is floppy. Sideways isn't worth his screen time. I don't need another Megatron or Starscream. And I don't need Starscream repaints or anyone else just recolored from the first movie.

    I'm abusing the fact I can see video reviews now that weren't commonplace in 2007. Now that I can see how everything works and such, it makes it a hell of a lot easier to sort the trash from the treasures.

    For example, in April/May '07, I thought the regular Voyager Ironhide figure was -awesome- based on pictures. Right after I got it, I saw it was average at best.

    I'm picking up the new molds that catch my interest, and the new Ldr Prime, Vygr Megs and Starscream. The new molds of those three IMO have much more accurate bot/alt modes and much improved transformations. Planning repaints for the Movie 1 versions to add to my character list. Stuff like the "biker chicks", delivery truck guy, the Superion/Bruticus packs, Breakaway and the Movie one repaints really aren't catching my eye. One thing I WILL NOT MISS OUT ON is the Ledgends Constructicons that combine!

    I just want in movie figures that aren't repaints of the first. Retools are a go if it's improved. So all of the Constructicon vehicles, sideways, ravage, and new Autobots I get. I just don't want to get yet another Ratchet or Ironhide.

    Off screen stuff, I just get what looks awesome. Stratosphere is not included in that, so he's an easy pass.

    Pretty much this. Back in 2007 we didn't have as many people getting the figures as early as we have now. So, video reviews of the figures didn't come out until they were at mass retail already. However, now we have guys buying these guys three to four months before the release and putting out video reviews for the rest of us to make decisions on well in advance. So, I already have my list set of who I'm going to buy and who I'm not going to buy.

    So far all that I have bought are Leader Prime and Megs, and deluxe Sideswipe. I'll get Superion and Bruticus for my classics collection and the two Walmart seekers, maybe the Human Alliace figs and Jetfire. As for the rest nothing has really appealed to me, of course that might change after I see the movie.

    I'm mostly getting figures that are in scale to one another. Also whatever's within my budget.

    For instance, I'm skipping Deluxe Ravage in the hopes that he'll get a Legends mold because that's closer to scale with Deluxe Soundwave, which I already have.

    i actually want to return sideways due to his almost nonexistant screentime. the only ones left on my wanna-get list are jetfire, leader megs, leader ss, and maybe the fallen, skids, mudflap, and wheelie. i don't remember many other characters with screentime that warrants a buy

    I like to get a new mold every week. So I pick up what catches my eye on a given week.

    So far, all I really want at this point are Ransack and The Fallen. Everything else I want (which is also only a select few figures) are less important to those two.
