    which do you guys find better the ROTF toys or the 2007 toys? Personally I think the ROTF toys are a lot more secren acurate and they are more intricate.

    Without question it's ROTF toys. Optimus Prime alone helps ROTF win this topic.

    Eh...I kinda like the first movie toys more than the ROTF toys. But I DO love that ROTF Leader Prime mold. :D

    I just now got another ROTF Optimus Prime to open. I originally bought mine at Botcon's preview night and then had it signed by Peter Cullen himself. I can't believe I held up this long without this guy!

    I like ultimate bumblebee, but i think that the new head with the battle mask is a little weak (IMO).

    I can't judge until more come out. My favorites from the 1st movie were non-movie toys (wreckage, stockade, dropkick). I prefer their bulkiness over the movie accurate floppiness. Here's my current personal leanings. ROTF wins due to the Human Alliance but for the comparable class (Leader, Voyager, Deluxe) ROTF still has the edge for now.

    Leader - leaning towards ROTF due to Starscream/Jetfire/new Optimus slightly over Brawl and Premiums
    TFTM (good) - Premium Prime, Nightwatch Prime, Brawl, Desert Brawl
    TFTM (other) - Premium Megs
    ROTF (good) - Jetfire, Optimus Prime, Starscream?
    ROTF (ohter) = Megatron

    Voyager - TFTM for Ratchet, Ironhide, and premiums
    TFTM (good) - Ratchet (G1, Premium), Starscream (G1, DS, TC. . .), Premium Ironhide
    TFTM (other) - Optivision Prime, Blackout (Premium, Evac), Incinerator, Premium Megatron
    ROTF (good) - Starscream, Long Haul, Bludgeon?, Jungle Ironhide?
    ROTF (other) - Fallen, Burning Fallen, Demolisher, Mixmaster, Stratosphere, Megatron

    Deluxe - TFTM due to stockade/dropkick/arcee/wreckage unless the arcee combo is awesome or we get new molds not yet announced
    TFTM (good) - Premium BB, Barricade, Stockade, Dropkick, Arcee, Bonecrusher
    TFTM (other) - Longarm, Dreadwing, Jazz, Swindle, Payload, preview figs, Scorponok
    ROTF (good) - Sideswipe, Rampage, Lockdown?
    ROTF (other) - Arcee, Wheelie, Sideways, Ravage, Soundwave, Breakaway, Jolt, Skids, Mupflap, Ice Cream

    Scout - ROTF due to the toaster

    Legends - ROFT due to devestator and TFTM loses points for the craptastic starscream

    Human Alliance - ROTF by a landslide

    THe ROTF toys are way better executed than the majority of the first movie toys. The first movie did have a few good ones like Ironhide, CC Bumblebee, and Leader Brawl. But I think they've done a MUCH MUCH MUCH better job with ROTF toys. For the most part they're much more accurate, and better designed.

    I've preferred the ROTF toys to the 07 ones.

    The ROTF toys win in my mind simply because more of the toys that ACTUALLY APPEARED are considered good, and are appearing in the first couple of waves.

    For instance, in the first movie, a lot of the first wave had issues. Bonecrusher was WILDLY out of scale, Starscream had no hands and looked nothing like an F-22 in vehicle mode, Blackout was TINY, Deluxe Brawl had the shoulder issue, Swindle was MEH...

    The really good TFTM stuff didn't happen until later. Leader Brawl, Longarm, Landmine, Dropkick, the Premiums...

    The fact that the ROTF line has only just STARTED and it's already comparable to the best the TFTM line had to offer tells me ROTF clearly wins, simply because any future excellence will just put it over the top. The ROTF engineering is generally just superior.

    ROTF, TF1 hardly stands a chance in comparison (although to be honest they are re-using some of the old molds...)

    I like both of them. The new leader Prime is stunning. *still trying not to be too pissed when I look at the leader Prime I got from the first movie*

    It's hard to justify buying 2 leader Primes when he looks the same in both movies and the truck mode is almost the same.

    Actually yeah, it pisses me off. Because I don't have $50. to drop on Prime. Hoping he'll be available for the next few months so I can save up a bit for it.

    ROTF for the majority of the stuff. Though there's some exceptions. Premium Ironhide is still better than the NEST redeco.

    I like the RotF line better - the toys are more colorful and have more personality about them. They get my attention a lot better than the first film's toys did.

    That said, I intend to merge the two Movie line shelves anyway. Have one shelf for all TF07 and RotF.

    ROTF line is much better.

    Sideways, Sideswipe, Prime and Demolisher are amazing.
