    which do you prefer,the DOTM toyline or the ROTF toyline?personally,i prefer the ROTF toyline,the engineering was fantastic,and we got some of the most screen accurate movie toys to date.DOTM was good,but lack of some much needed charchters in the line(cough,dino,cough)really took from it.kinda digged the mech-tech tough.

    The DOTM line got canned, so I'd have to say ROTF.

    Are we including semi-associated lines like Hunt for the Decepticons / Reveal the Shield and Cyberverse, or just the branded ROTF and DOTM lines?

    I'm gonna go ahead and say ROTF, especially if you're including that NEST subline and HFTD.

    There were just so many DOTM figures that didn't look good and were straight downgrades from previous toys they had. Why would I buy DOTM Voyager Optimus when I could get the much better looking HFTD Optimus on the same shelf?

    :lol  Yea, they mean the same thing, sir.

    I prefer the ROTF toy-line. It gave us almost every figure we wanted, including ROTF Leader Optimus and Starscream:D

    ROTF, because it contained one of the only good movie toys.

    DotM was pretty crappy other than deluxe Ratchet, legends Sideswipe, and commanders IMO. RotF and it's sublines, how ever, where some of my favorite lines.

    ROTF and its sublines was one of if not the most well executed line of 21st century Transformers. The assortment of figures was just massive and highly varied. I really appreciated the original and complex design choices and how much diversity there was. Solid redecos and some fantastic new molds, as well as Human Alliance, an absolute treat. I really wish every line was this well executed start to finish.

    RotF gave me Bludgeon. DotM gave me Skyhammer. They're pretty even to me.

    RotF line, no contest. The DotM line was disappointing for me.

    ROTF-Give us more Minibots and The other 6 Seekers.

    DOTM-Give just 1 Minibot,Wreckers, & Mech Tech Weapons.

    I go will Rotf due by those Seekers.
