    I'm most likely going out of town Tuesday and I'm gonna be hitting up the beach for a few hours then going TF hunting for a few more.

    My list of wants right now are:

    Leader Jetfire
    Deluxe Jolt
    Deluxe Sideways
    WM Exclusive Skywarp
    Voyager Starscream
    Leader Prime
    Universe Inferno (if I come across him)
    2 more ROTF Deluxe Ravages
    ROTF Superion
    ROTF Bruticus

    I'm thinking of budgeting my spending on this trip out to about $120 or $150 for TFs. Which ones should I focus on getting right now? I have a feeling the wm exclusives are gonna be reduced in price soon, my second wm is overstocked with them so I might save them for a later date since I CAN and HAVE found them here. I really want Jolt, Jetfire and at least one more Ravage.

    Any ideas on who I should cut and who I should keep?

    - Jetfire - Tough call on this one. It doesn't seem to have saturation yet, so you might be able to wait until it starts showing up in greater numbers. On the other hand, that could be a long time, given how many Primes and Megatrons there are. Might be worth getting, if you see it.
    - Jolt - Definitely hasn't hit saturation yet, but seems to be popular so might be a good idea to jump on it.
    - Sideways - Major shelfwarmer, you can probably wait on this one without too much worry.
    - WM Skywarp - These have already dropped in price once ($27 - $22) and are still hanging around. Depending on how badly you want it, you might want to hold off a little and see if the price drops again.
    - Starscream - I'd skip this one personally (it's highly over-rated), and just wait for the Leader Class RotF Starscream coming next year.
    - Leader Prime - These are going to be around for a long time, no rush.
    - TFU Inferno - Good luck this far out but, if you find him, grab him.
    - Ravage - Seems to be shelfwarming a little in my area, so probably not something that's going to be gone soon.

    I'd say definitely get Inferno, Jolt, Jetfire and one of the two Ravages (roughly $100, give or take).

    ok Thanks. Jolt is top of my list so far, Jetfire is number 2. I guess we'll just have to wait and see on Wednesday.
    I'm using them as hunter drones for The Fallen.


    Anyways I'm off to work now, so I'll take another look over the thread when I get back.

    Back from work. I'm hoping I will somehow find an Inferno but I know that's a lot to hope for. I'm least holding out for Jolt, Jetfire and ROTF Bruticus and Superion if I can find them, I forgot about those 2.

    Oh man, my list is just as, if not longer than that. I've fallen pretty behind, but I'm about busted this month.

    I think Scantron nailed it. If you can find Inferno, get him. Might be a little late now. but good luck. Jolt and Jetfire havent hit full mass-saturation yet, but they will especially Jolt.
    Skywarp + Ramjet arent going anywhere. For me, I'd keep an eye out for Inferno, and the latest waves of ROTF figures. Ravage doesnt seem to be moving either. Starscream is an improvement over the last movie version, but w/ a leader class coming it might be worth the wait.
    Leader Prime is not going anywhere either. I'm looking to pick him up when I get Jetfire for the gestalt action.

    Skip Sideways and go for Dead End, much better looking if you ask me.

    your list looks like a nice list. Classics format, but was not numbered. Overall I'll give your list a 7 out of 10.

    Dead End has a better paint job but I hate his head mold.


    Starscream and Skywarp I am using for repaints and I don't want them to be out of scale with each other hence why I'm using the Voyager version of SS. Ravage is sold out in my area so I might try for just one more for the time being.

    Well I guess tomorrow will be the day we find out. I'm off to work in about 30 minutes and I'll most likely going to sleep after I get home and I'm heading out as soon as I wake up so if anyone has any more suggestions please post them now. Thanks for all the suggestions so far.

    Remember: NO TWINS, unless they are hot and blond.
