    O-K so this year I do not want to be a victim of strange impulse buys again. I'm making my list and checking it twice to make sure I'm not over doing it or "wasting" money on trash figures.List as follows:
    -Sideswipe, I will follow up with the premium and then re-paint the orig. into Sunstreaker.(see planning ahead ;)  now I have an excuse for both versions )
    -Soundwave, new, like it, gotta have(wish he was a voyager)
    -Human Alliance Ironhide, and maybe Bumblebee, he is preeety cool.(I just want an Ironhide that's bigger than ratchet damn it!)
    -Jetfire,Leader
    -Optimus, Leader
    -Megatron( waiting for the clearance price for this guy I just bought my premium at Walmart for 17$)
    -Ratchet, if and only if he gets a new vehicle mode or shows substantial improvements
    -Jetfire2 going to mod this one into Starscream. :ev: 
    -The Fallen, leader or Voy, don't care
    -Devastator, definetly going to re-paint into G1 colors.Screw G2
    -Ravage *fingers crossed* for an alternate mode
    -Scorponok, I scraped my first one for my Blackout figure, never could find a replacement for my collection so I'll have to get him too(again)
    total with tax thats like 436.42! Better start saving.
    Skipping the fugly twins and anything horribly out of scale with the leader class figures (like the deluxe bikes) I might get Springer if hes a good re-mold not re-paint of Incinerator.
    Has the Fallen been confirmed as a Leader class yet? We usually get 2 bad and one good leader, or vice versa.
    Cheers!

    wow...i thought my list was ambitious. I am honestly surprised so many seem to go for all the odd classes. I think the only Legends I'll be getting is wheelie. I'm trying to keep my figures to scale with each other as best they can and if they don't fit in I mod them into my collectiong like my leader class Bonecrusher, and Blackout ( and Starscream too!! can't wait) I am a sucker for any big Decepticon. So if any others make it into Voyager I'm planning on gobbling them up.

    I'm not going to list everything, because he is my plan: I am gong to buy two of every deluxe, voyager, and leader figure, one to open and one to put away. In several cases in which I am dissatisfied with the paint, I will keep both sealed and return one once the premium is released. I will also get the scouts and legends, but only one of each and kept in a box. If FAB Long Haul turns out to be the only toy of the character, I will buy him as well, but only one to open.

    This is going to cost a tremendous amount of money.. that's why we have summer jobs!

    I'm keeping it lean for RoTF. Dead End, Sideswipe and Soundwave are my only guarantees so far. Everything else I'll play by ear.

    Deluxe: Soundwave, Sideswipe, Skids
    Voyager: The Fallen, Demolisher
    Leader: Optimus Prime

    My current list:
    Leader Prime
    Voyager Starscream

    I'm waiting for better Human Alliance pictures to decide on those. Other than that, I'm not interested in anything else just yet. OUTSIDE chance on sideswipe, but that would be if he ends up being a major player in the movie and I like the character.

    The only answer I have is "not everything", or to be more specific, "Not as much as I bought for the first movie line".

    All the Starscream stuff. That should keep me busy for a bit. I'll decide on any others after looking at reviews and if cash permits.

    It's too early!

    Here's my plan so far:

    Leader Megs
    Leader Prime
    Voyager Starscream
    Voyager Fallen

    everything after that is very. very subject to change. Depends on how I like them in the movie, how much money I available, and if I can get a sale price on some of them.

    ironhide was the only character I missed out on last time that I wanted.

    New leader prime actually makes me sort of want one. Will have to see the prime/jetfire thing in all its glory tho.

    Other than that, will have to see.

    If there is a new mold Springer (Voyager-sized) then I'd add that to Sideswipe. Even at that, I'm waiting for the inevitable repaint of Sideswipe prior to purchasing. I'm leaning toward no on Prime/Jetfire, but could change my mind once we see how they combine.
