    I'm going on 23 years old, and my "Christmas List" this year was still comprised almost entirely of Transformers and a few video games. My question is, are any of you expecting to get some sought after figures for Christmas/holiday of choice this year, and if so, what are you hoping for?

    I made an Amazon wishlist to make shopping easy for my not-so-tech savvy parents, and I'm expecting a re-issue Star Convoy, and the TV magazine exclusive Superlink Fire Grand Convoy, as well as MyClones series 2, if I'm lucky. I'm already a lucky guy though, as my fiancee also supports my raging inner child, and I know she got my a couple figures as well, probably WST Hot Rod, and another I can't guess.

    Super Mario Galaxy and Silent Hill Origins rounded out my list with some much needed gaming entertainment (It's too soon to run through Mass Effect a third time).

    So yeah, what, if any Transformers are you guys hoping for?

    Well, not transformers related. I will be looking forward to rock band and ultimate daibouken this year. With a few figures from the new power rangers line.

    The only thing I was really looking for this year is a CR JRX giftset. I know for a fact I'll be getting one, because I ordered it myself.

    Thanks to my sale thread, I managed to get just about everything else I was looking for as it was released.

    Personally, the only TF related gift that I can look forward to is a PS2 copy of the Movie game (I know a lot of people don't like it, but, after playing it at a friends house, I personally do, that and they were able to get it for cheap).

    This is only quasi-related, but the Fox Movie Channel ran Power Rangers:The Movie today, and it was glorious. I haven't seen it in years, and had been wanting to see it again recently. Rock Band (game only) was also on my list. I figure, if I get it, I'll have fun with the guitars until the drum kit releases on its own.

    Whoops, guess I missed that thread. My quick scan apparently failed. *Dons flame retardant gear*

    I have the PS3 version of the game, and it's fun to fly around as Starscream and wreak havoc, but for the $60 I paid for it, I was vastly underwhelmed. Also, the driving controls are total crap. I mainly like it for the fact that you can unlock G1 skins...that and Frank Welker and Peter Cullen.

    I'm not expecting anything. We just don't have the money right now, everything we could afford to spend went to our daughter, and i'm fine with that.

    Edit: thanks to Brazilian buying some of my stuff, and Sunnyday77 for making a great deal with me, I'll have a few tf's coming my way, but won't see them till after the holiday.

    2nd Edit: my wife sells adult "toys" so i was expecting something else from this thread lol

    I'm 24, and I've got Transformers for Christmas for the last few years, but I dont think I will this year. The movie toys are so hard to find and I'm not even sure which ones I care about, so I didnt ask any of my relatives to go through the hastle. And all those nice Japanese figures (Skywarp and such) are just too expensive. I would've liked to get the rest of the G1 Robot Heroes, but they're as hard to find as the movie figures

    Thats cool. My friend worked in an adult "toy" shop and she had a t-shirt that said "not for sale".

    Funny where one runs into "adult toy store" smach isn't it(ha). Any way I let it be known that I didn't buy the movie so I'm hoping for that at least.
