    For me:

    LOCS:

    Probably most of them at some point. I love LOCs.

    FABS:

    Starscream. He looks kind a like an Earth Mode Jhiaxus!
    Maybe Ironhide.

    Deluxes:

    Jazz
    '09 Bumblebee
    Barricade
    Bonecrusher(only if the Voyager doesn't get a western release, or I'm staring at the pegs with nothing else to get).

    Voyagers:

    Blackout(waiting on a Leader or Ultra though, I won't bother with the Voyager if there is one).
    Optimus Prime(Standard Version)
    G1 Ironhide Repaint(maybe)
    Frosty the Megatron.
    I was going to get Ratchet, but I may have to cancel that in favour of getting the Revoltechs.

    Leader:

    Brawl. When he's on clearance. TFs are so overpriced here, Leaders always end up being reduced.

    Revoltech Prime
    Revoltech Jazz
    Revoltech Frenzy

    I'm hoping we get Voyager Starscream repainted as Apeface. That would be the best thing ever.

    My current planned buy list looks a bit like this:

    Real Action Bots:

    ALL OF THEM, I love the little bastards.

    Deluxes:

    Jazz
    Brawl
    Barricade
    Bumblebee 70's
    Bumblebee 09
    Bonecrusher
    Scorponok

    Voyagers:

    Ratchet
    Blackout
    Ironhide
    Starscream
    Optimus Prime

    Leaders:

    Optimus Prime
    Megatron
    Brawl

    I'll be probably buying 99% of these when they're on sale as there's bound to be a few 20% off toy sales on while these dudes are out. I'll probably hold out on dudes like Leader Megatron and wait for them to get a good mark down.

    It's likely I'll grab any of the weird crap if it gets heavily marked down like most movie toy stuff does after the season is done (Cyber stompers I'm looking at you).

    Oh damn, that's about $700 worth of stuff right there. Yikes. Yeah, probably going to grab must / all of these guys on sale.

    I will get most deluxes except Scorponok & Dreadwing. I'll get all the Real Gear, and pick & choose from the repaints. Above deluxe, I'll get Ironhide and Blackout, Voyager Prime, and most likely Leader Prime as well.

    What I am positively getting are deluxe Jazz and some more legends (I like those little guys, though I passed Ratchet). Real Gears, too :) 
    The rest I'll have to see in person to make up my mind.

    I'd have loved to complete the movie cast, it should have been a no brainer. But I can't get myself to purchase those fugly Starscream, Ratchet, Scorponok or Megatron toys. A shame really.

    Real Gears, Deluxe Frenzy, Legends Bumblebee, Heroes Prime and Ravage, Energon Basic Repaints, Deluxe Dreadwing, Deluxe Swindle, Voyager Ratchet white repaint and maybe an occasional impulse buy but that is unlikley.

    De ja vu anyone?

    Well, here's my current "to be purchased" list:

    Movie Leaders:
    Megatron - only interested in him because he's closer to the proper scale of the other figures and I don't like the "ice" on the voyager Megatron.

    Movie Voyagers:
    Blackout
    Ironhide
    Optimus Prime - The "Robovision" Target Exclusive version.
    Ratchet - The movie version as I'll be skipping the "G1" inspired one.
    Starscream - The movie version as I'll be skipping the "G1" inspired one.
    Thundercracker

    Movie Deluxes:
    Arcee
    Barricade (snatched up already!)
    Bonecrusher (snatched up already!)
    Brawl (snatched up already!)
    Bumblebee - The 2008 Camaro version as I'm skipping the 1974 Camaro version.
    Dropkick - Assuming it's not a drone, but I think it is actually. If it is I'll skip him just like Swindle and Dreadwing.
    Jazz (snatched up already!)
    Longarm - Assuming he's not some kind of drone, but he's listed as an Autobot so I doubt it.
    Optimus Prime, Protoform (snatched up already!)
    Payload - Again, assuming he's not a drone, but it's a 'con so it's possible.
    Starscream, Proroform (snatched up already!)
    Wreckage

    Movie Authentic Action Figures:
    - I'll have to see these in person, but right now I plan on getting most of them sense I reall am digging the Prime, Megatron, Jazz and Barricade... the only one that looks off is Bumblebee IMPO. Hopefully they'll be more of these guys as I've always wanted actual "action figures" of my Transformers!

    Movie Fast Action Battlers:
    Megatron
    Optimus Prime
    Ratchet
    Starscream

    Of what has been seen

    Basics:
    Arcee
    Hardtop
    Clocker
    Strongarm (liked the molds, disliked the colors, the more muted movie colors work great for me)

    Deluxes:
    Jazz
    rumored G1 repaint Jazz
    Brawl
    Wreckage
    Barricade

    and possibly:
    Swindle
    Bonecrusher
    '08 Bumblebee

    Voyager:
    Rescue Ratchet
    Starscream
    Thundercracker
    Ironhide
    Blackout (2 packed w/ scorps)

    Others:
    Leader Prime (maybe megs)
    FAB Jazz
    AAF Jazz
    AAF Prime

    And still waiting to see what the rest of the deluxes look like and if the rumored Voyagers/Leaders will actually get made. I hope we get confirmation on some bigger versions of Brawl/Blackout/Bonecrusher soon cause if I can get them bigger I'd pass on the smaller ones.

    I'm going to be doing a whole lot more TF selling than buying this year. So far it's only Robovision Prime, but I like the alt modes of most of them. Let's see what I can find on clearance this fall.

    I buy as few toys as possible. ie, I only have 3 Cybertron toys, and one was an impulse buy. One was Evac, though, and he's the best helicopter ever.

    That said:
    No LOCs. Don't like tiny figures.

    Maybe some real gears. The lady likes these, so I don't have a real need to buy any.

    No Deluxes. Most are cool, but none are making me go HOLY SHIT. The HOLY SHIT is a requiremen for me. I do quite like Wreckage and 08 Bumblebee, though.

    Voyagers. Hard to say. I love Prime, and will almost certainly grab him, unless i found out that his repaint will be something really cool, then I'll wait. I like Ironhide and Rachet, too, but I think I can make myself pass. Blackout looks cool, but he doesn't do his CGI counterpart justice. I hate Starscream. I like the frozen megatron, but I can live without him. Voyager is the class with the best figures in this line, and I've found in most lines.

    I hate Leader figures in general, not as a rule, but becuase they so often just suck. Every megs in AEC, for example, plus pregger Prime, Armada Prime, and Metroplex. Yuck. I am hoping aginst hope that Leader Brawl isn't crippled with electronic junk, and is actually just a movie accurate and well put togther tank bot. Beyond that, no big Prime or Megs for me.

    No Supremes for the movie, and Ultimate Bumblebee is trash. I tend not to buy 'other' movie toys, so unless a really cool sculpt for those revoltechy guys comes out, thats it for me.

    It's not dislike for the movie or the toys, I LOVE the movie, and like most of the toys, I'm just short on toy space, and excruciatingly poor.

    I already bought Jazz, want to at least get the other cars like Barricade and Bumblebee. I'm also interested in the Revoltech knock-off figures that were recently posted.

    Bonecrusher
    Bumblebee (Both versions, already have the '74 camaro one)
    Jazz
    Longarm (probably)
    Payload (probably)
    Swindle (probably)
    Dropkick (probably)
    Dreadwing (probably)

    Definitely skipping Deluxe Brawl, one of the Primes, the Legends, FABs and Titaniums. Probably Ultimate Bumblebee as well...looks cool, way too much money.

    Originally, none. But then I got the Optimus protoform and fell in love with the design. So I quickly went back for Starscream, and am looking forward to getting more. I'm limiting myself, though. Only characters who appear in the movie, and only one version of each (save Bumblebee). So the final list comes out to be:

    Leader class
    Optimus Prime
    Megatron

    Voyager class
    Starscream
    Ironhide
    Ratchet
    Blackout

    Deluxe class
    Bumblebee
    '08 Bumblebee
    Jazz
    Barricade
    Brawl
    Bonecrusher (why do so many of the movie 'Cons have names that start with B?)

    Scorponok is a maybe. Given the crappy bot mode I'd have to be really, really impressed with his alt mode when I see it in person.
