    I've taken it upon myself to get one final Movie toy. Why? Because it seems like there probably won't be of anything worth of interest until later on in the year. Plus, Dark of the Moon kind of had a devestating affect on me and I reckon it's time I took a break from collecting and give myself room to breathe again.

    My final toy until something else comes along will be Voyager Class Ironhide.

    I thought it would be best that I do something to remember him. He's a cool character, and he deserves a place alongside my two prized possessions: Leader Class HFTD Battle Hooks Optimus Prime and Revenge of the Fallen Deluxe Sideswipe.

    But, once Dark of the Moon Mirage comes out, I will resume collecting. If it happens here. I never got TFA Rodimus because his toy never reached South Australia. I felt left out and unhappy about it, but I'm going to make up for it by getting my new favourite red Autobot.

    What about you? Are you planning on getting one final Movie toy or are you going to keep collecting until you're broke?

    It all depends on whether we get a leader Megatron or not. Until then, I can't see myself picking up much else from the DotM line. Bring on TF: Prime, I say!

    I'm not sure, I only go for what I really like. So as long as I see something I really like, I'll go on with DOTM.

    I totally concur,I only have 6 or 7 more DOTM figures to get before I'm done with the movie figs unless they tell us Leader Megs is in the works,but these are the ones I plan to get if I can find them.

    Leader Ironhide
    Cyberverse Prime with trailer
    Cyber Commander Ironhide
    Ultimate Prime
    Deluxe Specialist Ratchet
    HA Roadbuster (another one for alt mode)
    HA Leadfoot (Target Excl.)
    Oh and HA Topspin (not sure if Hasbro is doing him or not,but hope so)

    Probably would get Shockwave or Skyhammer or Megatron, The Dreads and Ratchet, Sideswipe and Topspin are contenders as well.

    Why would he suck? And besides, I reckon a Cyberverse verison of Ironhide would look stupid amongst my tiny collection. I want Voyager Ironhide because he would be perfect for scale between Leader Class Optimus and Deluxe Sideswipe, he's movie acurrate (almost nothing like Leader Class Ironhide) and less expensive.

    Our shops are having a massive toy sale, that's also another reason why I wanna get him. Prices have lowered somewhat and I find that the perfect opportunity to get him while it's all good.

    I've got the voyager and it's a really good figure. Anyways, I've still got alot of figures to pick up, namely Shockwave, Laserbeak, Jetwing OP, Voyager OP two pack, Crankcase, The Ark, and a couple more random figures, so I ain't done yet.

    The Voyager mold is flawed.

    But the Cyberverse is just plain too small for them to pull off anything more than a vague passing resemblance to Ironhide. it's arms are about as messed up as on the Voyager.

    I was actually done with the DOTM toys once I found Powerglide on the shelf. Maybe they'll come out with something else that's Classic-y enough to catch my eye, but until they do, I'm done. Sad thing is I'm not too hot on the idea of Prime toys either. :(

    I just need Space Case and Guzzle, to join Powerglide, Skyhammer and Shockwave. Really didn't buy much this line.

    Um, well, from retail, I'll probably only get Backfire and Crankcase, considering we here won't see anything else until they release a sub-line... But I'll probably get Shockwave, Skyhammer, the Wreckers, the remaining Dreads, Mirage, Wheeljack and what's his face... lol I basically only get guys that have never had a movie appearance, or that are greatly improved molds...

    Don't listen to what some people are saying, Ironhide rocks, and even though he has funky arms, he's a damn fine figure :D

    I've been collecting since 2001 and still have the means to do so now so there's no reason for me to stop. I'll definitely slow down though, I hit that beginning of a ew line frenzy where I bought stuff just because it looked cool, not because I really wanted it...but thankfully I've cooled off now.

    Completely agree. The Leader class version is much better.

    Well I just purchased Leader Ironhide...all I really want now is HA Roadbuster, Leadfoot and hopefully Topspin. That will be it for a while, until they release Dino and Q, and of course HA Soundwave :) ...and I think that will do for the movie line for a good long while. Bring on TF: Prime.

    This. I think I might have to make Leader Megs my final DotM buy, just to kind of close it out with a (potentially) good mold. That all depends upon what other Human Alliance figures come out, though.

    I think I'll keep collecting but somehow I'll manage not to go broke.
