    I didnt buy any premium figures in the last line.

    My list isnt changing so far. I'll get sideswipe, leader prime, leader megatron, the fallen, sideways. they all look fine, and I cant see any way for them to be improved.

    also, I never saw a single premium toy that didnt have some kind of really annoying paint problems. so I never felt bad about passing on a single one.

    I am going to try to resist the temptation. I bought way too many toys from the '07 movie. Need to spend my money on better things! However, I'm tempted to ebay my leader prime and megatron from the first movie to pick up the new versions.

    Just going to get Superion and maybe Bruticus (hoping FP or someone else makes an add on kit). Otherwise I'm not buying any movie toys - don't like the way they look and don't have room for them.

    I will spend $ to go see ROTF though.

    I didn't get any Movie 1 toys (well, except for that '74 camaro Bumblebee, which was a dissappointment), and I'm sure I won't be tempted to get any Movie 2 toys too.

    The aesthetics of the Movie toys do not blend well with my classics or animated collection. If I were to get Movie toys, I'd like to get a whole lot of them to display together....nah.

    I'll just use that money to get other Fansproject's releases which blends better with my collection.

    Now is absolutely beyond the shadow of a doubt the time to be bolstering your vintage figure collection. Give it enough time and the new movie stuff will be on clearance somewhere.

    However, with the collectibles market in a black hole at the moment, buyers have it made when it comes to vintage toys. Take the money you were going to spend on ROTF stuff and put it towards your vintage collection!

    Some of the ROTF figures are decent, but its still not my thing. I'm gonna catch up on my Henkei figs and hopefully some other past stuff.

    I'll buy leader Prime and Sideswipe. Maybe the Bumblebee with the Sam figure. Devastator only they release a version with all the individual bots mods as well as the combined form.

    I only bought about 5 or 6 figures from the first movie line. The movie toys just really don't interest me.

    It's not a matter of being "suckered" or not, I'm just not that interested.

    Ebay:
    I would like to buy one of every character who appears in the movie, but if there are really going to be 40 robots I don't know how that will turn out. Of course, that could include a bunch of characters that are there just to get slagged, and I could pass on those. As for premiums, I didn't really think the premium line from the first movie was THAT big of an upgrade for most of the figures. The only two I thought it improved a lot were Leader Megs and Barricade.

    That being said, as of right now I see myself picking up:
    Leader Prime
    Deluxe Preview Bumblebee (I have Stealth Bee, but i want an accurate one)
    Sideswipe
    The twins
    Leader Jetfire
    Voyager Megatron
    The Voyager/Deluxe Constructicons
    Sideways
    Voyager The Fallen
    Voyager Starscream

    Ones I might pick up:
    Human Alliance Bumblebee/Ironhide/etc. (Need to see if they are worth it)
    Voyager Ironhide (Need a movie accurate Ironhide, but guns aside I think the premium version of the first movie IH looks better)
    Voyager Ratchet (Again, I have the RR version, so I kind of want an accurate one)
    Leader Megatron (Kind of want him to match Leader Prime, but the Voyager just looks better)

    Not planning on going crazy with some of thee new movie toys, and I'm not gonna wait around for the 'what if, could have' mumbo jumbo with premiums and repaints and all that. I'm planning on going hardcore on leader Prime, Jetfire, Ramjet/Skywarp repaints, Chromia and the rest of the sisters and Sideways. That'll do for me.
