    Did anyone see the movie and then decide that you had to have the toy for one of the characters just because they were so awesome in the movie but you didn't plan on getting the toy before?

    For me, it was Leader Megatron. I really hated the design until I saw him in the movie and now I've grown pretty fond of this figure blue paint and everything!

    Megatron (as well as some of the repaints I have seen, and some feedback I have read).

    Of course when I decide I want to get him (and have the funds for it) absolutely no store has him in stock...and I used to see him all the time.

    Nah...none of the characters in the movie really impressed me. The only movie characters I don't own a toy of are Megs and SS...I hate the molds.

    I thought they looked great on film, just not on shelves.

    but I'm real picky with my TFs

    I finally bought the Barricade Figure really just cause his alt mode looks really good. He is the only movie toy that I have bought though. I'm really picky.

    I bought Baricade before the movie because in my taste he had the coolest alt. mode, but after seeing the movie and liking BB's personality opposed to him in G1 I decided to pick one up =)

    I had them all except Voyager Megs (won't get him), Scorponok and Brawl. I was waiting for Leader Brawl before the movie, and now am glad of that decision.

    After the movie, I broke down and bought Scorponok. I didn't want to, but since he was kinda cool in the movie, and thankfully never transformed into that stupid alt. mode, it made me want him.

    Still waiting on Leader Brawl and '08 Bumblebee...

    Didn't want them before and don't want them after. The only money the movie is getting from me is the cost of the ticket and the blu-ray dvd.

    After seeing the movie I HAD to get all the Autobots! I already had Barricade to who is awesome.
    Might have to get leader Brawl as well. The rest of the Decepticon molds still don''t impress me though...

    I couldn't really go nuts for most of the Transformers in the movie, unfortunately. There wasn't that much characterization given to them, with the exception of Bumblebee, Prime, and maybe Ironhide. And I already decided before the movie that I'd go for a leader Prime and '09 Bumblebee. I've read too many mixed reviews about Ironhide's toy to get him.

    Actually, I lied, I'd kinda like a Frenzy, that guy made me laugh :)  Probably the Robot Replica, since he looks more like the onscreen character, the lack of transformation doesn't really bug me in this case.

    Most of the movie toys that I wanted, I wanted before I saw the movie. In fact, I think Ratchet is the only movie character that I'm still not sold on. However, I kinda want Longarm and Hardtop because of the movie.
