    Well it's a long ways yet to go. But I think the end is in sight. The vibes from the moives are dieing out and with it...the toys line.

    Will you miss the moive toys line?

    There have been some toy which i have loved. Skyhammer, DOTM Megatron and his pointless rubber cape, the dreads, ROTF Thrust, the Ark is one of the stupidest and most loved toys I have, that leader starscream which was crazy. But speaking in black&white terms I didn't like most of the designs but over all I'll be glad to see it go.

    Are you happy to see it end? What characters/toys do you think will be remebered?

    Yes, I will miss them.

    They are the only Transformers toy series I have to collect. Other lines, I buy random ones.

    ROTF Prime is where Transformer toys peaked for me. That thing is just ...


    My pants get shorter...


    Then DOTM happened. And I was let down. Still, if they could keep up the quality, I wouldn't mind the movie line going on. I shall miss it.

    Not really. I loved the aesthetic, but after 4 years, it's time to move on. I'm still looking forward to a few toys left in the DOTM line, but as a whole, I'm more excited for Prime.

    nope, not at all. I've gotten some, but the aesthetic is so far off from 90% of the rest of my transformers, so I'd rather they not continue.

    Also, Once the Movie toys have ended, I will move on to just some random Prime toys. and once that is over, I'm quitting Transformers toy and moving on with my new life.

    I'll definitely miss them, since they're the toys that got me back into Transformers. I may pick up a few here and there once the movie line is done, but the ones from the film are the only ones that I felt like I really needed to have all of.

    HAHA!
    please let me know how that goes. I said that after Gen Sunstreaker and Sideswipe.
    and after cyclonus,
    and after I got a MP Grimlock

    I'd be something of hope, to hear someone...somewhere...got out.... :p

    Most of my collection is movie related, so I know I'll be buying less once the movie line slows down.

    I'll still collect - I'll end up with some Prime figures to be sure, I have some Generations, and there are certain characters from G1 that I like to collect.

    But the movie line has been my main thing.

    Even if I'd let you know, I probably won't come back to this site if I quit.

    definitely, once the last of it comes out (still hoping for a leader megatron), i don't see myself keeping up with the franchise anymore. as samuel clemens said, i came in with the movies in 2007, and i expect to go out with it. i'll probably stick to imported figures from other franchises after, unless some critically-acclaimed figure gets a cheaper domestic release and i'm still in the states at that time.

    Eh. All three movie lines had some nice stuff, but none of them had that last wave of toys that made me want it to go on. For example: PCC and Animated. Both had really great toys at the end of the end of the line that made me wish there was at least one more wave. With the movie lines it just kind of goes on. Plus Animated and PCC happened once. Movie toys happened once, happened again, still went on with HFTD, then DOTM came. I'd be up for a break.

    99% of my collection is Movieverse, so yeah I'll miss them. So many more characters, both on-screen and not, I'd love to be see done, and others redone.

    But at the same time, I'm glad we're moving on to new stuff. I don't think I'll be buying as much, though (but we all know how easily "just one more" becomes several hundred).


    EDIT: I want to hit the "Yes" button, but I really don't care for Bay doing a 4th movie...

    No. I've had enough of the movie toys at this point. I want more classics and prime toys.

    Right now, 3rd party stuff is more interesting than the official stuff because all of it is just lame DOTM toys I don't want.

    Don't miss it, as it's been in your face nearly without a break for four years, and pardon my skepticism, but I doubt it's going to be gone until it has fully worn out its welcome with the public.

    I was just being silly.
    Just treat it as a YES or NO.
