    To answer some of your questions:

    -The Humvee began production in 1984 but only first saw combat in 1989 (Operation Just Cause, the U.S. invasion of Panama).
    -"Never gonna give you up" was released in 1987
    -I believe the movie is supposed to take place in 1987

    :eek:  Oh god, Vangelus...NO! Do not let Shyamalan's "The Last Airbender" be your introduction to the series

    Please just watch the cartoon instead...do not do yourself a disservice like that!!!

    I SECOND THIS. Dear Primus, don't watch the Shyamalan Airbender movie. It's painful bad. Not 'fun' bad.

    The only toys that I pass on then got some in hand and had to go back were the Mugenbine figures. I traded all my Go-Buster mechs for something like 20+ Mugenbines.

    Please don't. Don't even touch the Shyamalan version. That is pissing away your ability to enjoy a touchstone in animation.

    No matter how you hate the bernie mac lines, I feel it was a really nice nod to Bernie Mac.
    and those lines made sense to add in there.

    I think the Beast maserpieces are pricing me out of getting them. I think both dinobot and Megatron look amazing but I fear Megs will be $300-$350 and I cannot justify that on a single toy

    I plan on. Buying the Golden Lagoon Starscream.
    And maybe the Perceptor/Seaspray/Beachcomber set if it goes on sale.
    Not getting the gold mp Optimus though. I already have 2 of that mold.

    I’m guilty of going back and rebuying/un-passing on stuff. It totally happened with me on Marvel Legends during the toy biz days. I also did it for Beast Wars. About 10 years ago my friend was getting rid of some random Transformers and he gave me a Transmetal Cheator and a Terrorsaur. So I decided to get just the show cast. I ended up gettting about half the cast before ultimately deciding that this was getting too expensive. So I sold everything I had. I have managed to hold off on all the MP Beast Wars stuff too and I haven’t looked back since.
