    So, The release of the much-anticipated ROTF line is coming in one week, and I'm sure that all of you guys are gearing up for it. I made this thread to pose a question: What are you planning to do and get on the day of the launch?

    I'll be getting Skids, Sideswipe, and Starscream, Rampage and demolisher!

    If Chromia happens to show up, I'll gladly purchase her too.

    I was lucky enough to find a store already selling some. So maybe while my daughter is in dance class, I'll stop into my local Walmart and pic a few up. But I'm in not so much of a rush anymore.

    "Do" might change, depending on whether or not TRU is having a midnighter...

    My original plan:

    Go to the Hermitage, PA Wal-Mart by 11:45 and get to toys. (Be one of the first there when midnight hits.)

    Get all I can there.

    If they don't have what I need, I'll head to Greenville's WM, check there.

    On my way home, I'll check the Meadville WM (because they should have the figures out by 2:00 or so. They're slow as hell.)

    And then get a small nap and head to Erie to check out TRU and Target for whatever they might have.

    After that, I'll eBay or online shop for the figures I don't find.

    Buy:

    Leader Class:
    Megatron

    Voyager Class:
    Demolishor
    Optimus Prime (I want his cannons for my LC.)
    The Fallen*

    Deluxe Class:
    Soundwave
    Skids*
    Chromia*
    Sideswipe
    Sideways
    Wheelie*
    Mudflap*
    Rampage

    *= if they're in stock. Some places around the country have 'em, some don't.

    I'm looking to spend between $200-250.00 Which is why I'm hoping TRU is having a midnighter. I'll get points racked up. :D

    Midnight, Wal Mart.
    0900 Target
    0930 TrU

    I don't think the Fallen is in the first release, is he? I particularly want him and voyager Megatron the most, but aside from them, it'll be buy everything until my alotted budget for figures runs out.

    Top of the list-
    Voyager Fallen
    Voyager Megatron
    Legends Megatron
    FAB Megatron
    Leader Prime
    Sideswipe
    Soundwave

    Any others will just be gravy.

    Huh? Soundwave is already shelfwarming everywhere in my city. As is Bumblebee. Did the preview wave not hit in the states? Some of the stuff I've been reading has been confusing me.

    EDIT: As for me, I just plan on grabbing Leader Prime as soon as I find it and I'm done after that.

    I plan to either go to Toys R Us (Depends on wether or not TRU will have a midnighter) or Target and Wal-Mart (Even though I hate WM with a burning passion).

    My Checklist:

    Leader:
    Optimus Prime

    Voyager:
    Megatron
    The Fallen
    Ironhide (?)


    Deluxe:
    Soundwave
    Bumblebee
    Sideswipe
    Wheelie (?)
    Skids
    Mudflap
    Chromia

    Scout:
    none yet

    Other:
    Human Aliance Bumblebee
    Supreme Devastator
    ROTF Ultimate BB (?)

    ? = A "maybe" atm

    My list may change depending on the money I get in the coming weeks.

    Just plan to hit walmart at midnight and hopefully pick up Sideswipe and Chromia. Hit Target when it opens the next day and get Superion. I only have 50 to spend, but if I end up with more cash I'll gladly spend it

    Heh. True.

    The Fallen was added to my list as a just in case kinda thing. Never know what stores will carry what. It's amazing what some places have in their stock room.

    Oh and FYI, you want to be at Target around 7:45. They open at 8:00, not 9 and if you wait, it could be pretty picked over.

    The Preview Wave is generally absent from the US. Not too many places have had reports of them being stocked. I know my local Wal-Mart doesn't have a single case of 'em.
