    So I got enough for either a Voyager or two Deluxes tomorrow mornin'...

    However this leaves me a dilemna.

    What to get?

    Voyager would either be SS or Blackout..though I have actually heard a bit of negative feedback on Blackout so of the two SS would be the most likely purchase.

    As for the Deluxes, well I'll just say that Barricade is probably my single most anticipated figure of the line which has me leaning towards getting him and someone else over SS or Blackout. I just don't know which other deluxe I'd want.

    Is 08 BB supposed to be out or whatever? Not a big fan of the other mold of him. Doesn't matter much if it is a bot or a con, but I'm not much of a fan of Jazz so he's not even being considered. Bonecrusher seems pretty cool though.

    So yeah...any suggestions?

    The '08 BB is not a going to be out for a while. If you are going to go Deluxe then I would pick Bonecrusher and Barricade, or if you decide to go Voyager Class I would go with Blackout (Ironhide would aslo be a great choice). Personally, I think that SS mold is terrible and wish it would go away.

    The best advice I can give though is to go with your first instict. Don't over think it.

    Blackout is an excellent choice, But It is radically different for what your used to. Bone crucher is also very good, no surprises there. Might also consider Brawl.

    If I only had one choice, it would definitely be Starscream, but Ironhide wouldn't be a bad choice neither.

    Barricade and Bonecrusher are very good choices, IMO, with Bonecrusher being just slightly superior. Both are fun toys with no engineering flaws and they're already a couple of my favorite figures. However, I would have to say that the best Deluxe in the line thusfar is Wreckage. True, he's not in the film, but the toy is very well crafted, with neat weapons, a good transformation and the best poseability of the Deluxes I currently have (I'm just missing Swindle from the first wave).

    The only two movie toys I have are voy Ratchet and deely Jazz. Ratchet is really good, even with his lack of a gun. I've got him posed on my desk and he look sreally cool. Jazz is alright, although his arms are pretty bad... his legs are cool though.

    The one toy I would recommend hands down to anybody above all else is Voyager Ironhide, in my opinion the best of the bunch by far and a must have no question. Leader and then Voyager Prime would be my other two must have movie toys. There all good, its one of the few lines I plan to complete but those three I would recommend to anybody to just buy no question.

    Other short list movie toys would be:

    - Ratchet
    - Scorponok (yes him he's very fun)
    - Wreckage
    - Starscream

    Leaving...somewhat soonsh to join the hunt (probably gonna check two stores at the most though...)

    I figure I'll go with Barricade and BB/Bonecrusher, or Starscream.

    Depends on what they have/what I can find.

    Plus I'm just not a big fan of Leader Prime >_>

    The only deluxe and voyager I'm looking out for right now are Starscream and Bumblebee.

    BB for his alternate mode and poseability, not to mention he's Bumblebee!

    SS for his... well, everthing!

    They had everything minus Prime and Megs (either class).

    Snagged Barricade and Bonecrusher. Was close to just going with SS...but two toys are better than one..I'll just pick up Screamer next week.

    The designs on these things are fucking sick..

    Just having one little problem with Barricade's transformation. I can't get his damn hips in place.

    By the looks of things in my TRU, Blackout's going to be the tough one to find down the line. If you have any desire to get him, I'd suggest making him a priority over the next couple weeks. Ironhide looks absolutely stellar, and I really, REALLY want him, but he was pouring off the shelves. I bought the last Blackout on the shelf instead.

    Debating on which deluxes to add to the list.

    It did my heart good to see so many and such a variety of Transformers products out on the shelves. Absolutely great to see.

    I only half looked at Blackout while I was at Walmart earlier (was holding my Barricade while contemplating replacing it with Voyager SS who looked oh so nice).

    I dunno about Blackout. I really like the character, and the toy looks nice, but I've read some negative things about him (espescially with his transformation) and, though I'm not too concerned with scale, he seems way too small.

    OK, I've seen three different places where people say they've heard bad things about Blackout, but no one who owns him seem to have much negative to say about him anywhere I've looked. What is it about him that's wrong, aside from size? So far he seems pretty awesome to me.

    Mostly problems with his automorph feature breaking or whatever, least that is the main complaint I've heard.
