    Who else spent over 2 hundred dollars when the rotf line got on the shelves. Burned a hole straight through my wallet and down to the center of the Earth... But it was so worth it.

    Yeah, I definitely did. I haven't even opened all of the stuff I bought yet, but so far the Scouts are the most impressive for me. I hated Sideswipe so much that I took him back!

    I don't understand how you can return an opened toy just because you don't like him. *shrug's shoulders*

    Honestly, I never really thought about it. If I get any product and it doesn't work for me I take it back. I can certainly see why someone wouldn't dig that since the toy is opened, though.

    Im close in canadian dollars, but probably only around $150 in us dollars. So far, of course.

    Bought so far from Wave 1:

    Leader Prime
    Voyager Starscream
    Deluxes Soundwave, Rampage, Breakaway, Sideswipe, Sideways
    Scout Knock Out
    Legends Jetfire and Springer

    Still plan to buy Leader Megs from Wave 1, but will wait for a sale on him. That should be it for Wave 1... though subsequent waves are gonna take a giant bite out of my wallet when all is done.

    *Ashamedly raises servo*

    I took advantage of the free shipping option at HasbroToyShop.com on Friday (~$129), picked up Leader Prime, Voyager Fallen, and five Legends figures. Oh, and Soundwave and Breakaway.

    I saved money for this past weekend, and so far the models are really freaking awesome. I continue to be impressed with how amazing the movie toy line is, particularly the $8 (Dead End, etc.).

    Question about the combiners... Have you had time to open all 5 of them already? If so, does Silverbolt's knees bend properly? Mines bends the wrong way. :(

    About $48.50 with tax for Prime. My girlfriend got me Starscream and Bumblebee, so that's my total so far. I'm trying to stick to just one mold per character, so I'm holding out on a lot of figures to see what's coming. I know I'll be getting the HA molds if they turn out well, so if they are $30 per figure that's already $120. I'm not too concerned with getting everything right away, they'll be around for awhile. Besides, if Hasbro really went all out and produced a ton they'll NEVER be hard to get ahold of, even on the secondary markets in the distant future.

    Haven't spend a dime on em yet, will prolly go shopping tomorrow though.

    But really, the only first wave figures I can see myself getting are Prime and most of the Scouts. I'd rather wait to see what kind of repaints Hasbro is going to throw at us before leaping in and getting everything I see. I mean, I'd hate to go pick up Skids and Sideswipe only to come home, check this place and see a news line reading "G1 Tracks Sideswipe and Blue Skids Target Exclusives!" or some such thing.

    I absolutely love the vast majority of the RotF molds, but I'm just not too crazy about their colors. So I'll wait, and watch, and pick the molds in the best colors I can. And after a few weeks/months of waiting on some that I'm iffy on(rotf SS, I'm looking at you!) , I'll just grab them at discount or off the Junkion boards for cheap!

    Plus my area always gets new stuff late. I doubt I'll even see Rotf stuff when I head to target tomorrow.

    Haven't spent anything yet... Only thing I NEED is Target Exclusive Superion, and the one I've looked at didn't have it yet. Going after work today to the other area Target and see if they have it.

    Certainly not. There are lots of us passing on RotF toys.

    G1 and Classics for me, please.
