    Alright, I know that the movie line is still kind of buzzin', but the first wave of Transformers Prime toys goes on to store shelfs in just over three months. So I thought I'd ask; What Prime toys do you plan on getting?

    Personally, I don't want to start buying any Prime toys until March when the full line is released, because I want to have a bit more time to finish off my movie collection before I start collecting anything else. But, that aside, I know what I want to get going from what we've seen.

    Deluxe
    • Arcee
    • Bumblebee
    • Cliffjumper
    • Knock Out
    • Soundwave
    • Starscream
    • Vehicon (x3 Hopefully)
    • Wheeljack

    Voyager
    • Bulkhead
    • Optimus Prime
    • Skyquake

    What I want to see
    • Deluxe Ratchet

    What I'm hoping for

    • Deluxe Airachnid
    • Voyager Breakdown
    • Voyager Megatron

    I'm buying at least one mold of every single character that appears in the show. I'll probably get deluxe Starscream instead of Voyager so he can be smaller than a possible Voyager Megatron and around the same size as Soundwave.

    By the end of this line, it's probably going to end up like Animated for me, where I have almost every deluxe/voyager/leader mold with only a few missing.

    All of them. with this line I will leave the store shelves barren and emptied.

    Aiming for twenty eradicons. And I'll need to open at least two of voyager Optimus so he can have a pair of blades and blasters like on the show.

    Its a good thing no leaders have been announced yet. As it keeps everything to either cyberverse size of collecting or a deluxe/voyager relative to the show setup.

    Looking forward to deluxe starscream. Because of how well he does those signature poses from the show.

    I would army build Breakdown when they make the inevitable voyager. Its a smaller cast. So there is a lot less of a background robot "want list" that Animated wound up creating by the end.
    But at the same time, I feel we know everyone pretty well. Though you will have to develop your own opinion on Soundwave and Bumblebee based on their actions and other transformers dialog with them.

    Even though I don't watch the show (yet) due to the first batch of episodes completely underwhelming me, I have a feeling that I'll be diving into the toy line. As much as I love my Classics-verse and can't wait to see that line restart, I appreciate the polar opposite aesthetic of Prime... much like Animated before it.

    Same as in the first post, but I will buy only 2 Vehicons.

    ALL OF THEM. I'm never a completist with Transformer figures but my word, this line is the best ever produced!!

    Absolutely can't wait for Voyager Prime, Skyquake, Bulkhead, Starscream
    Really hoping for Voyager Megs and Breakdown

    All the deluxes look amazing.

    I'm just curious as to what size the Voyagers will be. I have deluxe Prime from SDCC and it is TINY!! So I'm wondering if the Voyager Prime will be around the size as the DOTM Voyager Prime??

    What do you guys think? I mean the figures seem to be in good scale with each other - maybe for the first time ever in a Transformers line!!

    Bolded are toys I intend to get or want:wink: 

    I also want to see an Aircon retool(x2) and a Minercon(Drillbit shall be his name). Toys of those Prowl and Barricade concepts wouldn't be a bad thing either.

    edit: Also, though I would be satisfied with a deluxe Airachnid and a voyager Megs I wouldn't be opposed to getting a voyager of the former and a leader of the latter.

    edit 2: Leader Optimus would be cool too.

    Those are some other things I wouldn't mind seeing. I wouldn't really want a voyager Airachnid, given that in the show she's smaller than Knock Out.

    That may be true but I'm still trying to work out how they can make her legs articulate properly yet still be stable enough to hold her in such a small figure. Voyager, while not in scale, would probably make the articulation of her legs and a spider mode easier to engineer.

    Then why waste the money? That seriously makes no sense. Like, less than sense. It makes negative sense.

    Probably somewhere between "most" and "all" for me as well.

    Of the announced stuff, all I want is:

    Voyager Starscream
    Deluxe Wheeljack
    Voyager Skyquake(if he comes with his mini-gun)


    When they release a voyager or leader Megatron I'll be all over it.
