    This year I am trying to limit my Transformer purchases to ten pieces, unless I can budget more money for it or sell some of my current collection. It wasn't that tough for me to decide what to put on my list this year, since I don't have a lot of interest in the Siege line, even though it looks very good. But these are my picks:

    Siege Reflector (x3)
    Siege Cog
    Siege Sixgun
    Siege Brunt
    Siege Omega Supreme
    MP G2 Bumblebee
    MP Sideswipe
    Siege Flywheels

    If any of you had 10 to pick, what would they be?

    I like this one. It allows one to put a little thought into their buying and maybe even figure out what they really want. That's helpful for a guy on a budget such as I. My list would be:

    SS DOTM Megatron
    SS TF1 Optimus Prime
    Siege Leader Optimus
    Siege Shockwave
    Siege Magnus
    Siege Hound
    Siege Greenlight
    Siege Ratchet
    Prime Legion Flamewar
    RID Warrior Thermidor

    My Cybertronian Decepticons would be kind of pitiful, but really no Decepticon from the Siege line stands out as much as Shockwave. I need to continue my building my Star Seekers, so those last two seem to be the most necessary. With how many Leaders are on this list, I might just have to get only ten Transformers this year...

    Those are the only 5 I'm dedicated to right now. Remaining slots will be saved for anything major that catches my attention throughout the year.

    I’ve cut down on my TF purchases and the main line I am interested in (MP) has slowed down a lot, so it shouldn’t be too hard to stay under 10:

    Seige Brunt
    MP BW Megatron
    MP Hound
    Potentially another 1-3 figures between Seige, studio series, and 3P

    I try to keep a tight budget any how, so this is my "definitely" shopping list for the year:

    1. Siege Ultra Magnus
    2. Siege Reflector
    3. Siege Soundwave
    4. Spy Patrol
    5. Reissue Soundwave

    Very small, but I'm happy with it. I did leave a few maybes off, like the Firestormer & Skywarp packs, but I want to know what they actually contain first. If they have any cassettes, it's an instant buy. Also hoping the rumors of a G2 colored Selects Megatron is true, I might have to get one, because everything needs G2 colors.

    Yeah, I've already bought four figures this year:

    POTP Dreadwind
    Bumblebee Legion Barricade
    Botbots S'up Dawg
    TransformMission Revolt

    And I have an active preorder for MP-44. If I'd known I was limited to ten figures for the whole year I might have skipped a couple of those. :lol
