    Last 5 I got over the last few weeks were:
    • TFC 21 Blaster w/ Steeljaw
    • 2 Cybertron Minicon 2 packs w/ the Energon Sabre repaints (now I got them all!)
    • ALT Optimus Prime
    • Cybertron Metroplex
    .

    Blaster is cool, but compared to figs such as ALT OP and CYB. Metroplex, he doesn't really have much to him (and I freakin' HATE it when I don't get to apply the stickers to my reissues myself. Down with pre-applied stickers!)
    The Minicon 2 packs are cool, too, but I already had the original Energon Sabre minicons, but I did NOT have the Autobot triple-changing, weapon guys, and they rock!
    I don't know why everyone is dissing on ALT OP so much, I think he is a good ALT, better than getting another straight repaint (yeah, I'm looking at you Ricochet & Rollbar), decent enough articulation, and an imposing looking robot.
    My fave out of the 5 though, would have to be Cybertron Metroplex. He's HUGE, and has a big ass battle axe. Great articulation, good 'bot mode, (craptastic alt mode, but I will forgive you, Metroplex), a minicon, and did I mention he's HUGE??!!

    How's about y'all? What did you get??

    Mine were:

    Cyb Metroplex
    BW Rattrap Reissue
    BW Dinobot Reissue
    and got the wave 3 LOCs

    I don't really have a fav of them... Got Dinobot and Rattrap already from the originals. Soundwave is my fav LOC.. I like Cyb Metroplex a great deal

    Let's see...

    Cybertron Crosswise - only cause I needed another Autobot for my workspace. Decent.

    Alternators Decepticharge - Don't know. I ran out of room to display him in my display case.

    Universe Constructicons - Hightower is crap. Nice recolors otherwise.

    Cybertron Leobreaker - disappointing.

    Alt Rollbar/Ricochet (got at same time) - Don't know - Ran out of room - see above for decepticharge

    Cyb. Metroplex
    Takara Bookstyle Reissue Prowl
    Cyb. Excellion
    Cyb. Shortround
    Cyb. Soundwave

    All awesome... but I think Excellion and Shortround are my favorites of the bunch.

    In order from least recent to most recent:

    - C-Menasor with Heavy Load - Sucks. The aesthetic isn't bad, but the transformations are lame, one of the gimmicks mentioned on the box (and the instructions) was taken out and there are multiple stability problems (see my thread on it in the 'Feedback' section).
    - C-Nemesis Breaker - I really like this mold in general and the new colour scheme is great. Plus, the Nemesis Claw mode looks nice on Galaxy Convoy (haven't hooked it up to Galvatron yet).
    - Scrap Iron vs Grindor Minicon VS Pack - Not bad, actually. Scrap Iron has all of the stability problems inherent to the Astroscope mold, but the colours are nice. Grindor actually looks better than the original release. Also notable that the instructions show Cannonball as the 'wielder' of the Umbral Blaster.
    - Backblast vs Sureshock - Backblast has some loose joints and weaker peg-hole connections that weren't a problem on the original (and the knees appear to have been changed a little), but the colour scheme is nice. Sureshock still sucks, but the colours are alright. Whiel I don't have the third VS Pack in this wave, the portions of Perceptor and the Umbral Blaster I've combined so far look decent.
    - C-Nemesis Breaker - That's right, another one. I've got both hooked up to Galaxy Convoy right now for a 'Primal Convoy' mode.

    My last 5:

    THS 02 - Prime
    TFC# 21 - Blaster
    G1 Original Swoop - almost mint condition!
    TFC# 19 - Perceptor
    G1 Full functioning clean mint condition Omega Supreme.

    I think that's it in the past 9 months.... yeah.

    See my sig. I haven't yet opened the LOCs or Nemesis Breaker yet. I'm liking Metroplex wayyy too much to move on to the others.

    Ghost Starscream
    Japanese G1 Reissue Starscream
    Galaxy Force Starscream
    Armada MD-02 Starscream
    And I'll have to include Black Starscream, which was a present and my favorite.
    Because that's all I have right now. Just started collecting the past year.

    Nice selection, Firestar. Are you a fan of 'Screamer by any chance? He's a great character to collect.

    My last five (I think, I keep getting odd ones here and there so its getting hard to keep track):

    Cybertron Downshift
    Cybertron Excellion
    SWTF X Wing / Luke
    Dark Crumplezone
    Repgunus & Overbite

    Think one of those might not belong as I might have gotten someone else more recently. Of those, though, my favourite has to be Downshift. I love his vehicle mode! The rest are awesome, too. Even the SWTF Luke, although to be fair I've not opened him just yet.

    LOC Soundwave
    CYB Soundwave
    BW Depthcharge
    BW Scarem
    UNI Overbite/Repugnus

    CYb Soundwave is my favorite. LOVE HIM. I dont know how so many people can dislike him. I also like the LOC version of him a lot. I love tiny TFs.

    I'm not eve sure I can remember with complete accuracy as it's been pretty sparse recently, but:

    BW2 D-20 Autolauncher (en route), the last of the 4 BW2 autorollers I needed
    E-hobby Twincast
    Target Constructicons
    Cyb. Excellion

    No Alt. Prime yet. :mad 

    I'd say Twincast is the favorite of the bunch, just b/c it's always especially nice to get a previously prohibitively expensive piece. But they're ALL things I reallyreally wanted. I've cut back on TF purchases that I'm liable to regret ala Armada and Energon.

    Last five:

    Cyb. Downshift
    Energon Sledge (combiner)
    Energon Sky Shadow (combiner)
    Energon Treadshot (combiner)
    Energon Duststorm (combiner)

    I guess favorite out of these, largely mediocre, five bots would be Downshift. I haven't opened him yet, and don't know if I ever will. I was honestly disappointed to find that there are really only three unique molds in each of the Energon combiners, that is, the main guy and then the two pairs of repainted guys. Cop out, somewhat, but at least we got some combiners, huh?

    Hmm... It's been awhile since I've bought anything, so I don't know how accurate this is:

    Most recent to least recent:
    Takara Reissue Soundwave
    Takara Reissue Blaster
    Hasbro BW 10th Dinobot
    Hasbro BW 10th Tarantulas
    Takara BW 10th Op & Megs


    My favorite? I'm not sure. They're all cool. I guess Ops and Megs. I never had those molds before and the show accurate paint schemes and new heads are awesome. The box is really pretty too.

    Hmm.

    Cyb. Shortround
    Cyb. Metroplex
    Cyb. Soundwave
    Twincast w/ Flipsides
    BWX Megatron and Primal

    By far the BWX set is my favorite of the five.

    I'm kinda cheating since in some cases I bought more than one TF at the same time haha

    Cyb Nemesis Breaker
    Cyb Metroplex/ Minicon Vs. Set Wave 4
    Cyb Cannonball
    CYb Sky Shadow/ Shortround
    Cyb Wing Saber/ Soundwave

    As far as color schemes go, Nemesis Breaker is my fav, but it's my least favorite mold of the bunch. I think probably my favorite overall is Wing Saber, followed by Metroplex

    BW10th Rattrap
    BW10th Dinobot
    BW10th Predicon Tarantulas
    Cyb. Metroplex
    Cyb. Nemesis Breaker

    I'd have to say BW10th Rattrap has been my favorite pickup out of these five. I also like Cyb. Metroplex, as long as I keep him in bot mode :redface2:

    Let's see.... Last five were:

    1. CD Scattorshot
    2. Cyb Soundwave
    3. Reissue Blaster
    4. Alt Prime
    5. THS G1 Convoy

    Gotta say it is a toss up between CD Scattorshot (because he is the newest) and Alt Prime (because he is Alt Prime).

    Last 5, I think-
    Nemesis Breaker
    Botcon Flareup
    TM Primal and Megatron (vs pack)
    Metroplex

    Favorite? Probably a tie between Metroplex and Flareup.
