    What are you hoping to find and buy this year?

    I really want to finish my BW collection, only three to go:
    Season 1 Taratulus, Terrorsaur, and BA
    Maybe the club excusive Airrazor

    I also want to try and finish up my Bumblebee (mainly the VW) and Hot Rod/Rodimus collections.
    G2 Bumblebee
    Anime head Bumblebee
    maybe world's smallest and micromaster Hot Rod (if they sell him seperate of Star Saber)
    Not sure if it would be worth trying to get the exclusive Goldbug and Rodimus for this year (since they're evil and I like my good guys)

    I'd also love to pick up the Botcon exclusive Sunstreaker and Sideswipe from a couple years back. Maybe MP Megatron and/or Skywarp if I have any money left.

    Plus a few cool odds and ends.

    I have to save some money for June though when the Animated toys come out.

    I don't really have a list. When I'm at the parts party or dealer room, if I see a good deal on a figure I don't already own, it's mines. :D  If you interested in Shadow Striker and Roulette I have a set MISB.

    Any G1 MIB would be fine for me.

    Really looking for Computron Giftset though.

    I don't really plan on buying much this year.

    I will as always go hunting for some Battle Beasts, maybe look for some G1 stuff if I can find anything priced decently.

    So I will most likely just spend my money on beer, food, and coffee.

    I'm going to be looking for some G1 Dinobots (loose) and maybe some G1 MISB stuff (whatever catches my eye). I've been collecting mostly Takara reissues and Binaltechs but I'd like to get my hands on some stuff I always wanted as a kid. Also looking for some Alternators (Swerve & Camshaft).

    I really don't have any lists. I guess I am mostly looking for G1 and Beastwars.

    Not really much. Like Defuzz, most of my money will be spent "after hours" ;) 

    But I will get the Botcon custom WSTF if the guy is doing one this year (I think he is, but I don't know what toy) maybe something that catches my eye if the price is good. I'd love to get some more Japanese G1, but can't afford to :(

    Shopping list?

    ALCOHOL. :p 

    Seriously?
    There are a few very very rare and distinctive pieces I am after though, but I doubt I will ever buy them for they are several hundred bucks each.

    And I would rather spend my hard-earned money to have a good time with my friends :)

    I'm going as a seller for the first time ever. I'm selling most of my collection. I'll have my entire BW collection up, which is all the show characters. The only one's I might keep would be Optimal Optimus and TM2 Megatron. Anyone looking for BW or BM stuff ( including the '06 convention set and Airrazor ), come by the Gen1fan/Megamus/InsaneGalvatron table. :D 

    The only things I'm looking to pick up are:
    G1 colors iPod convoy ( for my iPhone )
    Encore Irondhide and Ratchet
    G1 Dinobots. Originals with good chrome and tight joints or KO if the KOs are cheap and decent quality.
    G1 Scattorshot with Computron parts

    Anyone looking to trade for anything I have, bring those items.
