    overall i love this line but not all toys are equal. Most i find simply incredible whereas one or two i feel could have been realised better, my biggest gripe is jazz, his car mode is awesome but his bot mode im feeling is just 'off' the parts just dont flow as nicely as say prowl or voyager megs, still he looks like fun i was hoping for something quite different.

    must buys:

    delux: soundwave, snarl, swoop.
    voyager: optimus earth, grimlock, lugnut.
    leader: ultra magnus, megatron.


    likely yes once ive seen:

    delux: ratchet, black arachnia, prowl,
    voyager: bulkhead, starscream, blitzwing
    leader: bulkhead

    not sure:

    delux: jazz, bumblebee, sentinel.


    no:

    delux: oilslick, lockdown
    voyager: cybertron megs
    leader: none

    Must: Soundwave, Prowl, Lockdown, Jazz (not picking a fight, here, I think he looks the bizzo)

    No: Lugnut, Oilslick, Bumblebee (+repaints), Ratchet

    Everyone else is somewhere in between...

    Ebay:
    Well, I plan on getting most of them. Heck, I've already bought a few that I wanted so bad I couldn't wait for them to hit the store shelves. I think I only have a couple that I have no interest in buying. Of course, I'm only going by what I've actually seen at this point as there was a lot of stuff described at the Animated panel that's upcoming, but since I haven't seen the figures yet I won't comment on them.

    Already Bought:
    Deluxe:
    • Blackarachnia
    • Prowl
    Voyager:
    • Grimlock

    Must Buy's:
    Deluxe:
    • Bumlbebee
    • Jazz
    • Soundwave
    • Swoop
    Voyager:
    • Blitzwing
    • Earth Mode Optimus Prime
    • Starscream
    Leader:
    • Bulkhead
    • Megatron
    • Ultra Magnus

    Definently, But Not Priority:
    Deluxe:
    • Lockdown
    • Ratchet
    • Sentinel Prime
    • Snarl
    Voyager:
    • Lugnut

    Probably Once I See Them
    Deluxe:
    • Cybertron Optimus Prime
    • Elite Guard Bumblebee
    • Oil Slick

    re jazz, i was hoping for something a bit chunkier, less of a lean ninja man in tights (im not sure why he gives that impression) and more of a short chunky design, i always liked the use of car parts in G1, his wheels are better served as lower legs me thinks than having them halfway up. anyway i really like jazz's colour scheme, that makes the mould look far more appealing. looks like oilslick is down on several lists, that could because hes not in teh show as yet but hes a rather off lookingh toy to begin with, kind of like ben 10 meets spawn meets a skinny skeletor.
