    Just a wild guess, but I'd say the movie forum? ;)

    What if the boycotters are, well, boycotting the movie forum?

    I'm not boycotting the movie, although I have disliked most of what I've seen so far.

    However, I think most of the toys are pretty good. I probably will ignore their continuity and try and use them as some kind of mutants (except for Megatron and Ironhide, who will be Thunderwing and Clench)

    I don't hate the movie, but the toy line is just another toy line to me.

    Well, I don't exactly hate the movie, but I have no interest in seeing it either. I'll probably wait until it reaches video before I see it.

    That being said, I like a number of the toys. I will undoubtedly end up picking up a few of them (including Voyager Prime and Blackout). My distaste for Energon/Cybertron etc. didn't stop me from picking up toys from those lines, so I don't really see any difference here. The toys are markedly different from their movie counterparts, and I happen to think that some of them look quite nice as figures. The fact that the toys are derived from a movie I'm not interested in doesn't really play into my decision making process when it comes to purchasing the toys.

    I am not going to see the film. And I don't think I'll buy the toys.

    I won't buy flaming Optimus because I hate the look of a blue truck with flames on it being called Prime.

    That deluxe Bumblebee......maybe.


    That spikey, scrap metal looking Megatron....no way.

    I am still surprised after all that we have seen that people still hate the movie that much...


    From what I can see the toys look really complex and well done for the most part. I can’t wait for July to come.

    I'm going to see the movie but what I've seen from the toyline does not interest me. More for you guys to enjoy.

    I'm not going to be collecting the toys, even though I love some of the Deluxe car figures - I promised myself to stop collecting after I completed Alternators and got MP Megatron.
