    Well, we're almost two thirds of the way through 2007. Not much time left to finish off those collecting goals you made for yourself way back in January. How much do you have left to go? Has you list changed drastically over the course of the past several months?

    As for me, there's really nothing left to buy. There's a few things that I *may* pick up if I find a decent deal, but nothing left that's a MUST. Mostly, all that's left for me is to trim down my collection.

    Over the course of the year I completed BW Neo, picked up the 1/48 and 1/60 Yamato Valkyries that I wanted, and finally picked up the Complete Calvin and Hobbes. That was really all I had in mind. I'm happy with a few other purchases that I made, too, but those were essentially impulse buys. Oh, I really wanted MP-5 Megatron and MP-3 Starscream, but when I did get them I sold them fairly quickly.

    The only things that are left is to see if I can maybe find any decent deals on a couple more Valkyries (Elint Seeker and Super Ostrich) and possibly pick up the WAVE Macross figure. Then just sell off everything that's not on display...

    All the new GI Joe stuff, Jazz/Thundercracker and Optimus/Unicron Robot Heroes, Real Gear Meantime, and Hasbro ML 2 Thor are about all I really really feel I have to have

    I guess Hasbro MP Screamer as well, that is this year right?

    Most of what's on my 'still need' list isn't Transformer related, however, I'd like to pick up most of what's left of the movie line (most of the 'new molds' anyways) and Hasbro's version of MP Screamer.

    The things I'd like to get for my 'must haves':

    1. Guyver Unit 3: Seriously, these guys were freakin' expensive to begin with (about $50 at import prices through most online retailers), but now that they're not in production anymore the eBay prices have gone... crazy... still trying to get a decent deal on him. Luckly I managed to pick up Unit 1 with the Image Anime cover through BBTS (who sold out rather quickly might I add).

    Well, that's about it actually, most everything else I want is either impulse stuff I decided I liked when it was announced or things from G1 that I've been patient with for a very very long time.

    Movie 09 Bumblebee
    Movie Blackout
    War Within Titaniums (already have Prime, Jetfire, and Thundercracker)
    Energon Superion
    Revoltech VF1-S

    There's prob alot more but this came right off the top of my head. I'll end up buying alot of random micromasters and actionmasters as the year ends.

    EDIT: How could I forget about the Hasbro MP Starscream? If I don't buy anything else, Starscream will definately be the one

    all of the Botcon toys except for Mirage (dont want), A3 (not considered part of Classic line so dont need), and Weirdwolf (successfully bought)

    MP Skywarp and American MP Starscream

    ML Soundwave and FrumbleRenzy

    Alt Rodimus, Ravage, and Rumble (the 3 R's!)

    Fan Club Astrotrain and combiner limbs

    the real question is, will I ever be able to afford this?

    Here's my list of stuff that I plan to get that have already been released:

    -Power Up VT6
    -Legends Blackout
    -Alt. Wheeljack's Sword
    -KO LR Prime
    -2 KO Alt. Smokescreens

    My list would be much longer if I were too include everything that I plan to get. That includes Movie stuff that hasn't been released, Animated, Titanium, and Classics 2.0 products.

    I will pick up movie Blackout and probably Leader class Prime. Some of the TFs appeared in the game as well.
    I have preordered BT-18 and RAH Boba Fett, so they are definitely on the list. TakTom DMZ Scopedog custom parts...DMZ-4 Rabidlydog probably.

    Whatever I am buying, I hope I'll plan well and spend wisely :lol

    08 Bumblebee
    Dropkick
    Leader Brawl
    Ironhide
    Starscream
    Blackout
    The Encores
    Classics Jetfire
    Classics Grimlock
    Classics Cliffjumper
    E. Downshift and Towline

    After that, I'll probably just fill some other holes in my collection. I'm so thankful that I have very little interest in Animated toys, because I can finally focus on things like Revoltechs and HGUC models and not be terribly broke.

    Well, after my RID Predacon 3-pack arrives I'll be looking for Sky-byte.Other than that I'll be looking mostly for more recent releases.

    I know I want Encore Prime and Screamer, and MP G1 SS. Reissue Sky-lynx if he comes out this year. Pretty much got all my movie figures except Brawl, Dropkick and the S7 Buggy. Might get Osprey. I also need to get Revoltech Prime and the last two WSTF Dinobots when they come out. Plus the Prime & Unicron RH pack and the Movie RHs.

    Other than that, I'm done.
