    I am one of those people who is not a fan of the movie character designs. Nevertheless, I don't know if I am alone but I am sooo sick of seeing the movie toys on the store shelves. I just can't wait till they're all gone and something new takes its place. Am I alone?

    I'm tired of seeing the first three waves of RoTF on the shelves.

    I'll help you. Send me a Jetfire from your area.
    I'm just thoughtful like that.

    No, you aren't alone. Unfortunately, the fact that the Movie franchise is a tremendous cash cow pretty much ensures that our wishes won't be fulfilled anytime soon...

    Amen. Especially damn Walmart.

    I don't know if its just my Walmart (could be the rest), but their strategy on restocking ANYTHING except food and clothes sucks. Example, when Animated and the two movie lines debuted, they had ALL the figures that were available at that time. However, getting new stuff afterwards to continue on the toylines SUCKS, and gets slower and slower with each passing wave.

    They also overstock way too much. There is a wall in the misc section of the toy asile made up of Voyager Optimus, Voyager Megatron, Stratosphere, and Mixmaster that's about 6 feet tall and 1.5 feet wide. The deluxe pegs are overloaded so much that if you even touch them at least 2 deluxes will fall out of place.

    Given the fact that I'm still seeing Animated and Universe on a regular basis... no. No I'm not.

    My Walmart has six pegs for Animated deluxes and two rows for voyagers. Even Activators came back. It's now just a waiting game for the new waves.

    That ^_^

    ROTF is way too popular for it to be leaving any time soon. Definitely look for older stuff and focus your plastic crack spending there ;)

    Unless you get lucky and find some Animated or Universe still in stock somewhere, you're outta luck. ROTF is already promising to be much longer than the first movie line was.

    But like everybody else is saying, there's always the possibility to search the net and find those missing TF's for what lines you do like.

    We're going to be stuck with ROTF toys for the remainder of this year. Next year they should -- hopefully -- release the last of the Animated figures, as well as the Universe Classics. Or, if they should happen to start a new TF series, we could see a whole new line of toys.

    Of course, if you're so tired of walking into a store and see nothing but ROTF toys, you can always go online to places like TF Source or Big Bad Toy Store to get the toys from other lines that you want.

    I LOVE the movie designs and I'm sick of seeing Movie toys. I only need Jetfire and I can't find him.

    But hey, now I'm looking into other stuff I wouldn't normally look at.

    I'm kind of over the Scout/Deluxe/Voyager classes of movie figures. I keep an eye out for more HA and leaders though. In the meantime, it's good for me to fill in a few things I never got around to grabbing and some of the odds and ends that come out like the Appendage kit, ROTF Combiners, and the G3 Trailer.

    I am sick of them. I only need Jetfire and the Ice Cream twins and then I am done. It will give me a chance to catch up on some Japanese stuff.
