    I promised myself I was not going to collect movie toys, I said "all I want is an 08 Bumblebee, that's it."

    A few days ago I found the two pack, so I got '08 BB and '77 or what ever BB, then today, I see Barricade (for the first time in a store no less) and buy him for myself... and that Decepticon pickup truck and Autobot tow-truck are starting to look pretty cool to me too... I want to get them too...

    WHAT HAVE I DONE!!!!

    The only thing I can say is: "It's addicting stop now!"

    lol, seriously they have some pretty cool toys in the movie line. My son has most of them. The only thing I don't like about them is the joints seem to become loose pretty quickly. :( 

    Guess they just don't make em like they used to. :p

    Arcee, Dropkick, and Longarm are probably the best non movie character molds, if not some of the best in the entire line

    I know how you feel DC. I swore I'd only buy the Primes and Barricade (since he's a Saleen), but now I have CC Bumblebee, G1 Jazz, G1 Starscream, Rescue Ratchet, Brawl, Leader and Voyager Megatron...forgot I have Ironhide too.

    Transformers are like lays potato chips, just can't stop with one.

    Once I get the lot a friend has for me, I'll have the complete movie cast + Arcee and the 'con Silverado. Had to get the bowtie. :D  Not really interested in all the clones, until the Osprey comes out that is. I fell in love with it when I saw the cutie at Hasbro show it off for us.

    It's not so bad if you just get the mainline movie figs and not all the misc stuff. Some are RID like and that's a good thing

    I dunno though, FAB Prime and the Prime arm blaster are pretty sweet.

    I applaud your courage. I've been fighting myself tooth and nail over picking up a Longarm, because I'm retired, damn it. (Leastwise till Classics 2.)

    I'm a sucker for realistic alt modes. RID had a few toys I just had to own. Aside from Alts and classics, I was able to pass on pretty much all the main lines since due to the unrealisticness of the vehicles. As soon as I saw the movie toys the first time in stores, I ended up buying all the main cast. A little later, I picked up Longarm, Swindle, Dropkick, and Dreadwing. I'll be glad to see Animated come around with all the unrealistic alt modes so I can leave them hanging on the pegs.

    That's part of the problem for me too - I am an absolute sucker for realistic alt modes.

    Originally i was just going to get Prime and Megatron. Then I decided to get the cast. Now Ive decided to get one of every character.

    Chicken leg truck!! :lol 

    Hasbro knew what they were doing with this line, I've already bought more of the toys than I thought I would including the Real Gears. Not to mention the Robot Heroes, I swore just the Bumbebee/Soundwave and Grimlock/Shockwave pack... now aside from Prime/Unicron I own every one of the dang things and even fabricated the display steps they're on. I even own a FAB (just Frenzy, I'm not that gone) and soon as it's clearanced off I'm getting the helmet.

    I hate the way the bots looked in the movie, but the toys are pretty cool.
