    Inspired by the Grail thread, what Transformers do you want, but just not right now? Ones that you know you'll just get eventually, be it next month or next year. For me, it's probably going to be G1 and RiD stuff. After watching some of peaugh's RiD reviews, I just know that I'll end up hunting some of the line down, but I'm in no rush, so 'I'll get them eventually'.

    The rest of the Alternators (all I've got is Ricochet) and the RiD line. Trying to finish off my Unicron Trilogy and classics stuff right now (about 27 toys left!).

    This year I won't be able to buy any ROTF figure. I do really want them.

    Classics Mirage, Astrotrain, Optimus, and Ultra Magnus for starters. Maybe another Alternator.

    Since I got my SDCC Soundwave, I've made it a bit of a mission to find and collect all the different cassette Transformers. That's a big "eventually" :)

    I guess my "get them eventually" list currently includes:

    -the remaining G1 dinobots. I still need Slag and Snarl. Plus a nicer Grimlock, mine has seen better days. They're not even really that expensive, I just kinda haven't pulled the trigger on them yet for whatever reason.

    -E-Hobby Astrotrain. Someday I'll be able to stomach paying what he goes for, but in the meantime I can do without him just fine.

    -the G1 Omnibots. Again, get 'em someday, but no hurry. For being special mail-away figures, they seem to go for surprisingly little money. I think that's why I don't feel pressured... though it may bite me.

    -BW Optimus and Megatron. I'm still not really a Beast Wars fan, but I've come to appreciate a handful of the figures. I have enough now that I feel the leaders need to be represented, so I'll probably pick these guys up at some point.

    -the remaining FP Botcon sets. I didn't start collecting Botcon sets till 2007, so I still need to pick up the '05 and '06 sets. The '05 one is pretty easily obtainable, the '06 not so much. But I figure I'll just keep an eye out and get 'em someday.

    -G1 Trypticon. It may be sacrilegious, but this mold honestly doesn't do too much for me. But as he is sort of necessary for a healthy G1 Decepticon collection, I'll pick him up at some point.

    I want to get a few of the classics that came out before i starting collecting again. I can't decide between henkei and U.S. release Megatron. But I'm also after Bumblebee and Mirage.

    I've moved the TF2 DVD and any IDW comics to the "I'll get them eventually" list. I may make an exception for the Wreckers mini, since I've been so impressed with Roche's writing and he isn't movie'ing up the character designs. Or I may just wait for the trade.

    Toywise, I'll buy it as soon as I want it. Looking for Fire Guts God Ginrai passively though, so it qualifies for this thread. Otherwise, I'm skipping most current stuff and have been since the debut of ROTF. I just can't bring myself to get into the movie toys unless they feel like Universe crossovers: Hoist, Bludgeon and Lockdown.

    Energon Quickstrike, Botcon Razorclaw, maybe Cybertron Longrack, Universe Cyclonus and Ratbat, MP G1 'screamer and Prime, and maybe Decepticharge. That would pretty much catch me up on all the older toys I really want (barring a Fort Max who I really have no plans to buy at all but would like one).
