    well, which ROTF figures are people going to buy? Me, I might rename a few to fit into my Universe.
    Autobots to buy
    Mudflap: More Twins
    Skids: More Twins
    Breakaway: It's a jet Autobot, which is rare, and it looks like it could be a match for a Seeker
    ROTF Optimus & Jetfire: Might buy for combining ability
    Sideswipe: Might rename either Overdrive, Drift, or Deep Cover (a eHobby nod)
    Voyager Springer: If it exists
    Unknown Ultra class Plane (not Jetfire)
    scouts
    plus the probable WM if I have the spare cash lying around

    Decepticons
    The Fallen
    Sideways
    Demoloshier
    the 2 versions of Devastator (need Constructicons that can go to robot mode)
    Ransack: The alt mode is a kick for me, a seriously underpowered vehicle mode against either Jetfire (movie or Classics), Springer and Breakaway

    Prime, Jetfire, The Fallen, Starscream, and Human Alliance Bumblebee. Then once on sale Devastator. No point in the loose Constructicons to me as like the G1 dev it only needs to be displayed in combined mode. Nothing else is really appealing especially the deluxes at uk prices.

    I prefered the line up of the first movie as it was easier to collect the complete series of toys and they were all pretty decent. This one is going to cost a fortune for many of which are average molds.

    I'll buy them all but if I could only have a few they would be Leader Optimus Prime, Human Alliance Bumblebee, Starscream and the Fallen.

    Same here, but I'll add Voyager Megatron, Sideways and Sideswipe to the "buy on first sight" list.

    The only ones we've seen so far that I'm not chomping at the bit for are the Twins, Leader Jetfire and Ironhide.

    The only guys I really want are preview!Soundwave, Ransack, Dune Runner, Scorponok, and Ravage (I get the feeling these last two will be in the toyline). Aside from that, I may try to get Optimus Prime (because I lack an OP toy that looks AUTHORITY), Sideswipe (that vehicle mode is SEXY), the Fallen (I don't really have a major Decepticon villain besides Starscream), and possibly a Voyager incarnation of Jetfire.

    Deluxe: Skids, Mudflap, Sideswipe, Preview Bumblebee, Soundwave, Rampage.

    Voyager: Demolisher, Starscream, Mixmaster, possibly Ironhide. (for the head and guns)

    Leader: Megaron, Optimus, Jetfire.

    HA: Bumblebee and Ironhide.

    Supreme: Devastator. (I know I'm going to get him, hopefully cheap, but RO&C Prime is STILL full price where I go)

    I haven't seen a single ROTF figure that's impressed me enough to pay for.

    My "definite buy" list, not broken down by faction:

    - Individual Deluxe/Voyager Constructicons
    - Jetfire
    - Voyager Megatron
    - Deluxe Soundwave (preview)
    - Deluxe Sideswipe
    - Jetfire
    - Voyager Starscream
    - Wal-Mart exclusive Skywarp
    - Ransack
    - Scalpel

    I'm probably going to buy most of the other (new-mold) Scouts, Deluxes and Voyagers, plus Leader Prime and the Devastator set, but the ones above are the figures I'm most looking forward to.

    I was considering Devastator, as the constructicons are the only ones that have appealed to me. but not after the corner cutting of that gestalt into a megazord. so none for me, which makes this the only TF line I wont be buying.

    Leader Prime is the only thing Im picking up. Likely Longhaul (deluxe or voyager, which ever it is) too. Maybe a few scouts. Thats about it.
