    I'm sorry if this was already been beaten off to death, but what sort of plasti'crack are we holding our for in terms of money, excitement & all that good stuff?

    For example, the HA Soundwave comes to mind right away, and the same goes for that red movie Ratchet and black/yellow lightning Bumblebee that're supposed to be coming out later this year, assuming of course that they doesn't look shitty in person.


    ... so yeah, what're the rest of us holding out for?

    HA Soundwave already has a dedicated spot on a shelf. That doesn't happen for me.
    Other than that, Prime all the way.

    All three Soundwave figures.
    Cannon Force Ironhide.
    Mirage/Dino.
    Wheeljack/Q.
    HA Leadfoot.
    HA Topspin.

    Hoping for a new voyager Ratchet mold, but if not, I'll either keep my Rescue Ratchet on display or go for the new Target exclusive, depending on whether I end up getting that Cannon Force Ironhide or not.

    Also hoping for HA Wheeljack/Q and Mirage/Dino.

    Right, forgot about TF Prime...

    Guess I've got yet another pressing reason to find another job.

    I'll probably be holding out until I can no longer breath with this, but MP BW Dinobot. He's an icon of the Beast Era, one of the greatest of my generation, and a hall of famer. What does it have to take to get this done? Skywarp is not an icon of G1 or a hall of famer, yet that character gets an MP figure.

    Well to be fair, Skywarp was pretty much a repainted Starscream, and he was iconic in his own right.

    I get what you're saying however, as Dinobot would definitely be deserved, especially since we've never really had a great & accurate figure of him yet.

    The rest of the DOTM movie cast. All I need is Legion Roadbuster, Legion Wheeljack, Legion Mirage, and Legion Soundwave, and they all have spots on my shelf. Also, I'm currently looking for a new bookcase for the Prime toys later this year as well as more room for my classics figs.

    Wow, i never liked the Beast Wars thingy, and find it hard to believe any character from there would deserve a place in transformers hall of fame before Soundwave and Shockwave do.

    Back to the topic, Leader Dotm Megs please.

    Suddenly really pumped for MP Rodimus. Hoping the quality on this release is better than the initial Takara run.

    Not waiting on an unreleased figure but think I may finally cough up for Collector's Club Astrotrain. Finally got Botcon Leozack this week.

    One people didn't mention is that, if the bot mode rocks, I think the garbage truck decepticon, if he gets a figure, could be a plast'crack toy

    Definitely HA soundwave. And I'm willing to bet he'll be rediculously short packed. Whaddya think, one soundwave in a case with 5 other bumblebees?

    And yea, TF: Prime. More precisely, Tfp Cliffjumper, Ratchet, Knockout and Vehicon (car version).

    I thought there were only three figures per case of HA?

    At least, that's what my Walmart always gets. And it's usually a 2:1 ratio, with Bumblebee ALWAYS taking the "2" spot.

    So you're at least partially right.
