    So out of the ones we've seen/heard about what will you buy?

    My list:

    TFA:
    Armor Prowl
    Wasp

    TFU2.0
    Cheetor
    Dinobot
    Leo Prime
    Legends G1 Bumblee
    Legends Wheelie
    Classics Starscream
    Rachet

    TF2 ROTF:
    Preview Soundwave
    CC Bumblebee remold

    Masterpiece:
    Grimlock( possibly)

    _____

    So as you can see....
    My wallet will be empty!

    Why not. So far...

    TFU2.0
    - Cyclonus
    - Hound
    - Inferno
    - Ratchet
    - Smokescreen
    - Superion
    - Bruticus
    - Wheelie

    Henkei
    - Cyclonus
    - Dirge & Thrust

    And I'll use the time off for RotF to pick up the City Commander trailer and possibly build me a Devastator. I'm iffy on the Starscream.

    Here's my list of what we know so far:

    Animated:
    -Bulkhead repaint (hinted at)
    -Atomic Lugnut
    -Waspinator

    Universe:
    -Hound w/Ravage
    -Ratchet
    -Smokescreen
    -Warpath
    -Hot Shot w/Jolt
    -Superion Gestalt (not sure when this'll get released)
    -Optimus Prime vs. Megatron
    -Ricochet vs. Predaking
    -Cyclonus w/Nightstick (and a second to kitbash)
    -Bruticus Gestalt (not sure when this'll get released)
    -Bruticus
    -Dinobot

    RotF:
    -Soundwave Preview Figure (only confirmed figure I plan on getting)

    MP:
    -Grimlock (though I'll be waiting for Hasbro's version of him)

    And that's only the confirmed stuff, there are plenty of other things I want to get that haven't been confirmed yet, but are more than likely going to bet released eventually (though some are more along the lines of stuff you'd see on a wish list).

    Animated

    Arcee

    Will probably get Season 3 stuff if they make that.

    ROTF

    Soundwave(probably Earth Mode)
    Tank Megatron

    I'm sure I'll be getting a lot more than that from this line, but those two I'm excited about. Just gotta start seeing more of the designs.

    Universe

    Ehhh... not sure if I'll get anything from that. maybe the dragon Bruticus, possibly Dinobot.

    Since I only collect G1 now, all I'm waiting for is Encore Trailbreaker (although I know it may be out before the end of this year - I'm not keeping my fingers crossed).


    Here's hoping that more G1 reissues are coming in 09....

    All the Legends ones - Classic Universe and Movie (assuming they are new versions for the new movie rather than the same figure in new packaging)

    Any new character Animated Activators i.e Megatron, Grimlock, unlikely to buy 5 Starscream clones.

    We might actually be getting some G1 reissues later next year. Hasbro really hasn't said much about it, but they have said that basically they'll be attempting to put some out there, possibly under the Universe line's name. I wouldn't hold my breath, but I wouldn't be surprised if we got a couple reissues at some point.

    Anything new mold animated will be mine, and after avoiding most Universe figures this year next year's batch are highly appealing (going Henkei for most of the new figures though, but I'll be getting alot of the Cybertron repaints since I missed that line).

    Alternity is my highest priority for the year though. 2 sure buys out of 2 so far.

    Definite purchase is Alternity Convoy (silver) and Disney TF. As for the Hasbro releases I have to see what's available to me.

    Based on stuff we know about...

    Universe

    - Hound
    - Cyclonus
    - Cheetor
    - Inferno
    - Smokescreen
    - Ratchet
    - Hot Shot
    - Dinobot
    - Target-exclusive Superion
    - Target-exclusive Bruticus

    Animated

    - Swindle
    - Blurr
    - Samurai Armor Prowl
    - Waspinator
    - Wreck-Gar
    - Constructicons
    - Jetfire/Jetstorm

    Revenge of the Fallen

    - "Protoform" Soundwave
    - Probably virtually every new mold (none of the repaints/retools)

    Miscellaneous

    - Fan's Club Shadow Commander Armor
    - Encore Trailbreaker - Going to wait until it gets put on sale, like virtually every other recent Encore release.
    - Masterpiece Grimlock - Maybe, but I'm not putting down a pre-order. It looks good...but then the last new-mold MP figure that I bought based on 'looking good' was MP Megatron, which turned out to be a poorly-engineering piece of garbage. I refuse to get burned again on a ~$150 toy, so Grimlock is going to have to have almost universally positive reviews before I buy it.

    So far the only upcoming Universe toy I have any interest in is Cyclonus. As for 09 as a whole it's all about movie toys :D

    for me it would be anything animated. cept the ugly repaints. and the transformers that are actually in the movie ROTF. maybe not the molds that were used in the 1st movie unless they are remolded.

    I'm liking almost everything announced so far for next year, so I'm going to buy everything I can afford. With Animated taking priority.
