    Just asking the community what is their top figures for the ROTF line. Top 10's are the usual but I am figuring that Top 15 is a good number....ten is too little and Top 20 is too much. Let me know what you think....

    I'll add mine soon....getting Mindwipe tomorrow!

    2. Human Alliance Bumblebee
    3. Human Alliance Barricade

    possible additions, not released yet:
    Leader Starscream

    Mindwipe
    Deluxe Ratchet
    Ransack
    Depthcharge
    Soundwave
    Voyager Megatron

    Thrust
    Dune Runner
    Sideways
    Dirt Boss
    EJECTOR

    I'm in the same boat as lord ginrai, in that I've only bought a handful of RoTF toys. So, out of what I have, here they are in order of how much I like them.

    Ejector
    Buster Optimus (mainly just for insane screen-accurateness and detail)
    Voy. Megatron
    HA Barricade
    Swerve
    Dirge
    Leader Jetfire
    HA BB

    Out of what I own (which does not include Brawn, but he looks like he deserves a spot):

    1. Leader Class Optimus Prime
    2. Leader Class Jetfire (if for no other reason than to combine with Prime)
    3. Voyager Bludgeon
    4. Voyager Mindwipe
    5. Deluxe Sideswipe
    6. Deluxe Dirge
    7. Deluxe Thrust (I feel like this guy is a better use of the mold)
    8. Scout Breakdown (or Brakedown?)
    9. Deluxe Skids
    10. Voyager Long Haul
    11. Ejector (while not the greatest toy, he wins some major points for sheer absurdity)
    12. Deluxe Jolt
    13. ?
    14. ?
    15. ?

    I'd like to include Deluxe Lockdown, Deluxe Brawn, Legends Devastator, perhaps some of the HA subline, but I don't know these, so I can't really say. There's some other good ones, like Scout Knockout and Scout Ransack that are good, but I wouldn't go so far as to say MUST HAVE.

    Leader Prime
    Voyager Starscream
    Voyager Megatron
    Deluxe Sideswipe
    Deluxe Ravage
    Deluxe Soundwave
    Scout Ransack
    Scout Ejector
    Legends Soundwave
    Legends Prime
    Legends Jetfire
    Legends Wheelie
    HA Bumblebee
    HA Skids
    HA Mudflap (assuming, I don't have him yet)

    Are probably my top 15, though I wouldn't call them must-haves. Some of the figures in my list aren't that popular, and I haven't got any newer releases.

    Human Alliance Bumblebee and Sam

    Mindwipe
    Bludgeon
    NEST Alliance Bumblebee
    Human Alliance Skids and Mikaela
    Human Alliance Barricade and Frenzy

    Even though they're not out yet - I believe Human Alliance Mudflap and Simmons will be on my list....and even though I don't like the character, the Leader Starscream looks extremely good.

    Sure, I'll play. Mind you, while these might be "must haves" for me personally, I would probably put together a different list if I were suggesting the "must haves" to a casual or new fan.

    -Buster Prime
    -Ice Cream Twins
    -Ejector
    -Mindwipe
    -Bludgeon
    -HA Bumblebee
    -Scout Nightbeat
    -Long Haul
    -Sideways..... yeah, you heard me!
    -Deluxe Sideswipe
    -Beachcomber
    -Ransack
    -Hoist
    -Dirge
    -Takara Black Soundwave


    I suspect that, when he is released, Leader Starscream will boot one of these (probably Dirge) off the list.

    A bit surprised no one's mentioned Mixmaster yet, he's probably my favorite figure from the line.

    Here's a list though

    HA Bumblebee
    Ransack
    Bludgeon
    Brakedown
    Jolt
    Sideways
    Voyager Megs
    Gears
    Mixmaster
    Dirge

    Getting Mindwipe and SS later this week, so, yeah.
