    I am talking about mostly on the new molds for the ROTF line. I don't count repaints from the first movie.

    I planned on stopping my collection with Animated and Universe but with the announcement of more Animated toys and doesn't look any time soon. So I decided to only get few ROTF toys. Its also because I don't have much room left.

    From what I saw Leader class Optimus Prime look like a ''Must Have'' and he look very movie accurate unlike the first movie.

    Leader class Jetfire... I didn't like his character in the movie and his toy on his own doesn't look impressive to me... is he worth just for the combined mode?

    Leader class Megatron... I found the first movie Megatron horrible, is this a big improvement? Can he at least move his head this time? I also find he left arm ridiculous.

    And is it true Hasbro confirmed there will be no ''Premium'' in the ROTF line?
    Sideswipe interested me but I heard many negative comments about his foot.

    Beside these 4, I am not really interested in the others. Fallen has those spring foot that the first movie Megatron voyager had which I hated.


    I currently just have ROTF Skywarp (a repaint from the first movie and felt he should had been released in that line) and Superion (who was to be in the Universe line to begin with).

    And is it true Hasbro confirmed there will be no ''Premium'' in the ROTF line?

    I can second Optimus as a must-have; he's an awesome toy all-around.


    I love the combined form but I've always been a sucker for that sort of thing. If you don't really like the look of Jetfire or the combination then I'd say you can pass up the cane-wielder.

    Leader Megatron is only somewhat impressive. You might consider the Voyager-sized Megatron though, half the price & more screen-accurate.

    I like Sideswipe but it is true there are some complaints about his design. Perhaps you should wait until the Human Alliance version is released & see which one is truly superior.

    I would wait for Buster Prime, which is very similar to the current Leader but has a gun and an open mouth.

    Leader Megatron is a vast improvement over the first one. Better paint, better transformation, better figure.

    Jetfire is cool, but not a must get. The combined mode is cool but nothing spectacular, and the best mode is definatly the SR-71.

    Sideswipe is awesome even with the feet. It's not as bad once you get him and play around with him a bit.

    And since it looks like you have already decided to get Leader Prime, I will just wait to tell you the awesomeness that is him.

    Leader Prime and Sideswipe. (The foot thing isn't that bad. You just have to angle a piece so he has a heel)

    Jetfire is cool for his huge alt mode. Don't care for Power Up Prime personally.

    Get Sideswipe - the people having trouble getting him to stand must have been dropped on their head at a young age.

    Easily the best RotF stoy I've got so far.

    IMHO, there's only one must get ROTF toy and that's Baron Ransack. He's a biplane of awesomeness.

    Ransack is a must have. I'll also put in a vote for Mixmaster. I love it.
