    What's your buying policy for the upcoming movie toyline?

    Mine is definite buy for new characters, definite buy for characters in entirely new forms, maybe for new mold characters, and pass for toys like the new Bumblebee.

    New molds only save those I don't own from the first, and one repaint per figure.

    New characters and returning character designs that interest me.

    Which would be most of what we've seen lately, the Human Alliance Bumblebee is something I plan to pick up if he's got a right hand and not a missile launcher arm.

    Just ones I think are cool.

    Alliance 'Bee, Leader Prime, Sideswipe. I'd like an Ironhide since I used my first movie one for a kitbash.

    I'm keeping the ones I have, but if I had to buy them all over again, I would've passed on Ratchet, Starscream, Megatron, Voyager Prime. I'm definitely buying less this line, and not worrying about "cast completion" sakes.

    Buy new characters in order of awesome, might leave out a few. Probably won't get any Leaders at full price, but I do want a Prime, Megs, and maybe a Fallen if they make it.
    Don't plan to get any remolds of toys I have.

    New characters are definite.
    The old characters will be judged on if I think their new toy is better or not, no matter how small some of the differences may be.

    Gonna be getting the new characters, characters from the first film I didn't get (aka Megatron, which is the only on screen character I was never able to pick up), and certain ones with significant improvements (new Leader Prime, new Voyager Starscream).

    I'm going to focus on new onscreen characters that I like, and then characters I missed from the first movie.
    I also plan to pick up a few of the scouts, and a few of the old designs that I already have. Like Optimus.

    I hope there are more "Human Alliance" figures. As I think the concept is cool, but don't want another Bumblebee.

    I'm not planning on buying many of the new movie toys at all; probably Sideswipe and the new Scouts, and Megatron if they toy doesn't suck. However after looking at the first lot of movie toys again recently, I really don't like most of them at all now.

    New characters featured in the film. And new decos or molds if they reflect the look in the new film. The new Deluxe Bumblebee I'm buying just to have an opened Bumblebee. They were in short supply where I live for the first film, so mine stayed in package.

    All the ones that are in the film are first, minus the ones I have already, unless they've changed. Once I'm satisfied with those, I'll look into getting repaints and such.

    None of them. I'm sticking to Encore, Animated, Universe and Henkei, maybe finally get Fort Max after all these years. More movie toys for you guys. :)

    I won't be getting any of them. For me to buy one the toy would have to be really REALLY great. I'd rather use the money on other serieses or another ticket to go see the film.
