    I really want to make a collection (as I don't have one) I only have 5 figures. But should I get every character that appears in the movie or a certain characters? Also, what price do you think the Human Alliance figures will cost? I think around £20?

    Buy what you want. It's silly to buy a figure just to have it.

    I don't know, it will take me forever to get them all on £40 a month

    Wait for someone to be tired of them to get them cheaper or wait for sales...

    If the first movie line is anything to go by, you'll be able to buy people's entire collection off them for peanuts a couple of months after release. Other than that, buy the ones you like the look of.

    Yeah, just buy what you want or get them cheaper off folks selling them months after they're first released.

    I know that months after the release there will be nothing left; I mean I only managed to get BB and Starscream (later traded for 2010 BB). Actually I wanted Jazz.

    Being in the UK does make it a bit of a sticky wicket when it comes to movie toys compared to the us over here in the US. As for what movie toys to get, just get what you like. Trying to be a completionist or getting figures that other people tell you to get, will just make you frustrated and unhappy with your collection in the long run.

    As for Movie 1 toys, go surf ebay they can be had for very little... unless you're looking for MIB or MISB. I'm pretty sure it'll be the same a few months after they finish releasing Movie 2 toys.
