    I was torn that I saw Drift AND Cybertronian Megatron today (one of each, I only saw Hailstorm once and never again), but ultimately got Drift.

    I also want Bumblebee for the weapons he has (I have cannon and the original one from the ROTF line)

    So the ones I want to complete are:

    Elita-1
    Terradive
    Tomahawk
    Highbrow

    possibly:
    Cybertronian Megatron
    BB Bumblebee


    I'd like my priority to get the ones that most people would go buy first, and I'm guessing Elita may be a shelfwarmer (if she follows Chromia).

    of your list, i would get
    highbrow
    tomahawk
    terradive
    elita-1

    bee before meg

    mainly cause i like them in that order....
    but because highbrow is the only voyager so i doubt there willbe as many of him on the shelves....but ive been wrong before :)

    get the figures that are the most unusual first. tomahawk. Terradive. even Cyb. Megs.
    i have yet to see any of them around.

    and some figures would be a lot easier to acquire through an online retailer.

    based on the ratio on boxing, leave Cybertronian Megatron and BB Bumblebee last. they'll be warming the shelf in no time

    I don't like certain TF figures,so I don' buy them. I'm done with being a completist & buying stuff I dis-like.

    out of the ones you listed. I only bought terradive,tomahawk & will buy highbrow when i see him in stores.

    I bought drift because he looks cool in both modes.

    I won't be buying any WFC figures because they don't look that great to me. they remind me of repeative updated homages from previous TF toy lines.

    did you post in the right thread tingermegatron?

    of the ones you mentioned, get tomahawk and cybertron megs first. terradive after them then the other two should be still easy to find, elita 1 should still be around in febuary

    I'm not sure if I want Cybertron Megs, I hid the one I found (behind towels, probably will be found) but I like the robot, but I'm not sure if he'll fit in well with the roft line

    To help you Propane,I say at the most wanted I would choose Highbrow,he is the coolest one out right now,and imho in the top 10 voyager size figs of all time.I was lucky to find one of him one day,then about a week later I found a second,so I could have one of each in each mode.

    But I modded both mine so the machine guns were underneath the wings in alt mode instead of on top by drilling the hole out hollow,and I clipped one of the bombs off on each side so the machine guns could fit.It made him look wayyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy better that way in alt mode.

    Finally I say the rest from your list are nice,Terradive and Tomahawk especially,but they can till after you get highbrow.Hope this helps.

    highbrow is packed 1 in 4 with 2 ops so it's going to be hard to find in the beginning.

    I'm not sure about the boxing of the others. I'll let you know if i find out. I did find elita-1 and Terradive on store shelves so they're not supre hard to find. I haven't found tomahawk or highbrow yet. In case that affects your priorities

    I read on this site that for the most part, he's has mixed feelings for the colors, but the alt mode makes up for that. So yeah, that helps.

    Ops being? Optimus or Night Ops Ratchet? Either way, it seems that from what you say, I should get the air Autobots first, then Terradive/Elita, right? it does help, thanks. But do you work at a target or something? Do most stores order 2 boxes, so I'd be lucky enough to get one if someone else gets another?

    I'd put BB bumblebee at lowest priority, since he'll probably see rerelease for DOTM.

    ops = optimus prime

    oh yeah, elita-1 is packed 1 in 8 per case. pretty bad ratio but i don't think demand is high for elita.. just like tuner skids and ravage will be shelf warming :p 

    I don't work for target so i couldn't tell you how they order. but many ppl here mention that target doesn't order more until toys move off the shelf.

    I just checked on wave 3 and here's what's in a case:

    2 BB Bumblebee
    2 Tomahawk
    2 Terradive
    2 Electrostatic Jolt (man... more shelfwarming)

    So i wouldn't worry too much about any of the deluxe. go pick up the highbrow.

    I believe Wave 2 is

    2x Elita-1
    2x Hailstorm
    2x Sidearm Sideswipe
    2x Tuner Skids

    I opened a box of these a couple days ago at Target and that was the breakdown. Not sure if there's a different case assortment with only one Elita like anotheran said.

    This is just my personal preference:

    Terradive
    Tomahawk
    Highbrow
    Elita-1
    Cybertronian Megatron
    BB Bumblebee

    If you can swing it and find them both, get Terradive and Tomahawk at the same time. They're by far the best Movie-styled toys on shelves right now.

    From the ones you listed I want Terradive and Highbrow.

    Terradive I will skip though. I'll wait till a better colored version comes out... that's if I can wait that long.

    So it seems the flying ones are the ones most people gun for... ;(

    I don't think I'll get BB BB or Cybertronian Megs, but I do want Generations Blurr with my Drift figure, does anyone have an idea of how badly hes wanted, or the ratio in boxes? In my area, I only see 1 maybe 3 Drifts, at most.
