    I'm only buying an occasional Takara item now. Even if they do make more classic G1, there are only a handful of characters I'd be interested in.

    yeah i know, but i was going off the OP's question of what are we doing while ROTF is on, assuming he meant the people that don't like the movie styles. if you do, that's great.....wish i did still, give me something to be excited about at the moment lol

    I'll be collecting some RotF figures, maybe a crossover or two. Maybe try and get back to my Batman and Venom collections. Oh, and it's still Universe 2.0. I'm not sure why people are calling it 3.0. It's not like the focus of the line is changing. The packaging will probably be different after the hiatus is over, but it's not the first line to change packaging part of the way threw it's run without changing it's focus, or it's name.

    I haven't gotten much ROTF stuff (will get most of it later on 2nd hand) so I've been picking up one or two Alternity figures, upgrade kits and hunting G1 stuff on eBay.

    I'm a Henkei fan, but it's kind of the same boat. The list for the next few months:

    Anything new from Fansproject (G3 Trailer, City Commander mk.II, Protector, etc.)
    Buster Prime
    Knight Morpher Commander
    Gear of War 2
    Henkei Ghost Starscream

    I also expect a few impulse buys in between to satiate the addiction.

    Collecting add-ons and autobot movie figs that fit the classics/universe and movie decepticon figs to turn into Pretenders so that when I get ROTF Bludgeon he won't be all alone. Also getting the ROTF Maximus combiners so I have all the energon gestalts, already have classics Devastator and now I have ROTF Superion, now I just need FP's appendage kit and ROTF Bruticus.

    Also trying to catch up on the figs I'm missing from Universe/Classics, I still need Ironhide, Inferno, Silverstreak, Henkei Dirge, Thrust and Thundercracker.

    Mostly G1 stuff. Catching up on my Encore reissues, but also looking into the more obscure Japanese G1 figures. MP-04 reissue, MP US Screamer, and MP US Skywarp are also on the list, as well as most of the third party classic-verse stuff.

    Looking to get Henkei Hound, Ironhide, and Powerglide to finish off my current lot of classics.
