    Up until recently, I've been against the movie toys ever since we saw the prototypes for Blackout, Scorponok, and Starscream (back when he had longer cannons). But since then, we've been seeing images of prototypes, test shots, and final-painted versions of many movie toys. They've started to grow on me, and in time, I've started to appreciate them (hell, Blackout even made my want list of TFs). So when the movie toys come out June 2nd, what will you buy?

    Here's what I might get:
    -Blackout
    -Deluxe Brawl
    -Deluxe Jazz
    -Deluxe Barricade with Frenzy
    -Deluxe Scorponok
    -FAB Optimus Prime
    -Leader-sized Optimus Prime
    -Real Gear Robots Longview
    -Real Gear Robots Spy Shot 6

    So far?

    The Real Gear toys and full size Ratchet, Blackout and leader class Prime so far.

    Everything but the Real Gears is due some fairly major kitbashing though.

    EDIT: Oh, and Wreckage. Forgot him.

    dux Brawl, Barricade, Bumblebee, Jazz
    leader Optimus
    voyager Ironhide, Starscream, Ratchet
    blackout
    bonecrusher (if there even is one)

    i may also get some FAB just for kicks. im not getting Megs because i don't like the toy. come to think of it, cool as the movie design is, i dont really like it. it's scary and all, but it just doesn't say transformer. If they made an accurate toy of him it'd just look like an action figure. and the transformer toy of him is unappealing to me.

    i plan on waltzing into the store with cash and buying all these things at the same time. can't wait for Blackout and Ironhide.

    I'll definitely buy all the mainline figures. Every single one. If Ultimate Bumblebee is a transformable dead-ringer for the character (that's not too crippled by electronics) then I'll surely be getting him as well.

    I'll most likely get all the real gear figures, too.

    I haven't decided on the Fast Action Battlers or the LOC's. They have a lot of "cute" appeal, but I'll have to see them in person first to decide if they're worth the cash.

    As for oddities... the only ones I'm interested in at this point are the plush figures. I'll probably pass on things like the Prime helmet, Prime glove, and Potato-Head Prime.

    The tough call for me will be statues. Generally I don't get those, and if the "Bumblebee Unleashed" statue is indicative of the rest of them, I'll pass on those. But if a high-end set of collector maquettes, say by Sideshow or Gentle Giant, came out I might pick up a couple of those.

    Sigh... gonna be an expensive summer.

    Not quite sure yet what I'll be buying, but its a safe bet I'll probably wind up picking up a good handful.

    Most notably what's impressed me the most so far (in order):

    - All the Real Gear stuff, in my opinion the best toys I've seen so far
    - Ironhide, best regular movie toy I've seen so far hands down
    - Ratchet
    - Prime (mostly because he's Prime)
    - Jazz

    Here's what I'm planning on getting so far-

    -Leader Class Optimus Prime
    -Voyager Class Ratchet
    -Voyager Class Ironhide
    -Voyager Class Blacout
    -Real Gears Cell Phone bot
    -Real Gears Digital Camera bot
    -Real Gears MP3 Player
    -Real Gears Watch or Game controller(wichever one is an Autobot)
    -Optimus Prime voice changer

    I'll probably get the Deluxe version of Scorponok, but I'm waiting for more/better pictures of him to make a decision. Peace out.

    Edit: Updated my list

    If I do buy any, I'll probably stick with the best versions of the deluxe & voyager key characters... except for Starscream who looks horrible across the board. The leader class Megatron looks alright (for that design) but the leader class Prime looks fat & stumpy, and you can't really have one without the other. Still hoping they make a leader class Blackout since they seem to be doing it with Brawl.

    I had high hopes for the Real Gear stuff, but am very letdown by the final output and will be skipping all of it. The LCD screen images look awful and the colors of the PSP guy in particular are dreadful.

    Everything else, in my opinion, is just too ridiculous to spend money on. Helmets, FAB flip-up things, plushies, etc. No thanks.

    So far I am in for all of the Real Gear robots, deluxe Jazz, Bumblebee, Barricade, Wreckage and Brawl. Scorponok is a pass, and I'll wait a while on anything larger.

    Likely going to completionize the "main" line (Real Gear, Deluxes-through-Leader class).

    I suspect I'll end up trying to completion the FABs too, though I'm trying to resist their snuggly cuteness. :(

    Call me cheap but right now only Blackout truly interests me. I'll probably grab either Voyager or leader Prime (have to see better pics) as well, but the rest are passes for me. I want Ratchet, but I can wait for clearance or a good paintjob (preferably the latter). The others just don't stand out to me. They are ok, but nothing special. The noticeable lack of paint apps really irritates me with alot of the figs, and others like SS just look plain ugly in both modes.

    Still, there are a few molds I'm eagerly looking forward to seeing, including Leader-class Brawl. Its about time we had a TF tank that was a decent scale when compared to ordinary vehicles. The Deluxe version looks so-so, but his minature size really bothers me. I'm one person who won't break the bank for this movie.

    It's easy to say this right now, but I want to avoid mainline stuff and concentrate on oddities.

    Definite
    ---------
    Titanium
    Robot Heroes
    Statues
    12" Bumblebee
    Roleplay

    Maybe
    --------
    Battlers
    Bumpers
    Stompers
    Real Gear

    No
    ---
    Legends

    I'm planning on getting the Leader, Voyager & Deluxe classes for sure, and probably the FABs too. Beyond that I don't know yet.
