    Maybe it's me and my new-collector enthusiasm, but I've been really psyched about 2010 ever since BotCon. I'm interested in a much higher proportion of the new figures coming out than I usually am.

    So what are your must-buys, maybe-buys, and don't-cares?

    Must-buy:
    Leader Starscream- I have a feeling this will cause me to break my no-Leader/nothing over $40 rule (I haven't even quite brought myself to buy OP for $35). I will FIND money and space for this guy.

    HA Barricade- One of my favorite characters but don't like the Deluxe too much. This looks like it will be a glorious thing indeed.

    Bludgeon- Duh.

    Ratchet and Lockdown- Love movie Ratchet but dislike the Voyager: this is more accurate and cheaper to boot. Lockdown is Lockdown...I probably would have bought the Animated toy if I hadn't heard about this in the pipeline. I prefer the movie style in general.

    Brawn- I appreciate the homage, and he'd make a pretty good companion for Ratchet.

    Mindwipe and Skystalker- Might well have picked up Mindwipe anyway just for his altmode, but the combining gimmick sealed it for me.

    Maybes:
    Ironhide- Probably will get him, as I love the paint and the massive amount of weapons. Just not the biggest fan of the mold.

    Blackout and Toxic Oil Slick- I have a Nemesis Strika and Cyclonus already, so I'm tempted to just get most of Team Chaar together. I do have Animated Shockwave as one of my few Animated toys, he can be their commander. :p 

    Rodimus and Arcee- They are so similar to the G1 versions that they'd practically fit in with Classics, plus they have awesome weapons and I liked them in Animated too.

    Scattorshot- He's a Scout, so cheap, and I like his look for a couple reasons.

    Brakedown- Was never a giant fan of the Stunticons or anything, but I like smaller cars (usually this means Legends) and he'd be in pretty good scale with guys like Voyager Starscream. If I got him I'd also grab Dead End (Scout).

    Armorhide- As long as I'm getting Ratchet and Brawn...also, I have Reign of Starscream now so I've seen him in the fiction.

    Legends Wheelie- I like the character enough to think about this.

    Don't-cares:

    Perceptor and the Insecticons- This is a case of liking the characters in fiction a lot more than the toys, or even really the idea of the toys.

    Animated Thundercracker- Don't need to collect Animated Seekers (actually I have never really fallen into the Seeker-craze), and he wasn't even my favorite Starscream clone (Sunstorm, who I already have).

    Black Soundwave- Have the original. The colors are striking, but I still prefer the more Soundwave-y preview fig.

    Bumblebee repaints- Ha, no.

    Dirge- I understand why people like him, I just don't myself. Too small, kinda ugly, two cockpits. Pushes all my buttons somehow.

    Agree with everything you said except....

    Reign of Starscream Armorhide is the repaint of the Cybertron figure of the same name...

    Mindwipe, Bludgeon, and HA Barricade are musts for me. The rest I'll play by ear.

    TFA Rodimus, Arcee.

    NEST Ratchet, Lockdown.

    Other than that, I'm not particularly psyched. I look forward to Bludgeon and Dirge, but the molds seem a little second-rate.
    Mindwipe and Skystalker seem adequate and unexciting.

    The bio for deluxe Armorhide lines up almost perfectly with the bio for the scout from the first movie, suggesting that its the same character in a new body.

    I for one am excited to see where Hasbro goes with the NEST subline. Plenty of great molds and a mixed bag of repaints. There's still plenty of molds from both movies that Hasbro has yet to repaint or retool, tons of potential there.

    I'm pretty stoked for everything. As soon as I see Animated Rodimus I'm grabbing like 3 . . . just love Rodimus!

    Other than that my absolute must have is Leader Starscream. That is going to be cool.

    Any remaining Animated releases that come out next year.
    Any new Encore or Masterpiece releases.
    FP Hot Rod Protector armor (I forget when the target date was, or if there even was one).
    The potential return of Classics sometime next year (even if it's simple repaints like Grapple, Sunstorm and Swindle at first).
