    I collect Transformers...I don't collect to collect them all...I collect the ones I like, from either the cartoons/movie, and others I think look cool! What I was wondering are there any Transformers currently out or coming out that your just not interested in adding to your collection!

    for me I have no interest in:
    Swindle
    Longarm
    Dreadwing
    Brawl (either version)
    Bonecrusher
    Voyager Megatron

    Much the same as your list:
    Swindle (might have if he had a real head.)
    Dreadwing (See above.)
    Either Megatron he's just ugly.
    any repaints including those from previous series i.e. Elita one etc.
    none of the F.A.B.s

    I passed on most of the movie toys. The only ones I got are some Real Gears, G1 Jazz Redeco, and the Target exclusive scouts.

    All of the movie toys. All of the Transformers Animated toys.

    I lost interest in the movie toys while watching the movie, and Animated just looks all sorts of horrible.

    Bring on the Classics 2.0!

    I must agree with Gigatron. All the movietoys are crap IMO.

    Only Optimus is kinda cool, but the rest aren't.

    I'm an impulse shopper so I know it won't do any good to make a list of stuff that I don't want 'cause I'll probably end up buying it anyway. On the plus side, I've been pleasantly surprised by some of the figures that I thought I wouldn't like.

    Some examples from your list:

    Dreadwing-I thought he was just a Thrust rip-off, but he's actually a pretty solid figure! The transformation is pretty well done IMO, and his alt mode looks really good. The only complaint is his lack of hands.

    Leader Brawl-I didn't think that there was any way that he would be worth the Leader class cost, but I'm extremely glad that I was wrong! His electronics are appropriate, his transformation is satisfying for me (not too tough, not too easy), and he is awesome in both 'bot and alt mode! No complaints on this one!

    I'll agree that I was fairly disappointed with the rest of the figures on your list, though...

    From the movie line. Deluxe Brawl. I can forgive Boncrushers puniness, not Brawls. Bring on Leader Brawl! Most of the FAB except Frenzy. All of the G1 repaints save "First Strike Optimus Prime" The rest look like; :poop  Voyager Prime/Megs I choose the leaders and that's that.


    I'm undecided on the All Spark repaints like Cliffjumper. Heck I'd buy a 70's BB repaint called Windcharger. :cool:

    Every new movie figure coming out from here until Animated, I'm not buying.

    Besides finally getting '08 Bumblebee a few weeks ago, I haven't bought any other TF's since early August.

    I have had no interest in collecting anything that came out after Armada, sans anything that has to do with G1, ie reissues or MP.

    I only collect movie/show characters. So any figure that is not mainline and from the movie or show I will never buy.

    The only FAB I did buy was Frenzy because it was the only way to get a transforming version of him (folding in half and tucking into barricade doesn't count)

    Thanx

    I'll buy one of each mold. No more. I got Metallic Best Buy Megatron only after returning the regular Voyager to TRU.

    I'm pretty much done with the remainder of the movie line, and cannot wait to see the Animated line up close and personal.

    Repaints. I don't do repaints. Especially not lazy stuff like Prime->Magnus, or Bumblebee->Cliffjumper.

    Toywise, I'm not interested in anything other than building up my G1 collection.

    I'm looking forward to the Animated cartoon though.
