    Since TF1 All I have collected is movieverse figures. It's cancellation is disheartening, but I will (eventually) get the Takara releases of Que, Ha/Dlx Soundwave and leadfoot. As for TF4, I'll wait and see.

    Nope. And I'm selling off all the other movie toys I have. I will merrily live without any movie TFs.

    I'm most likely going to keep on collecting Movie toys when TF4 starts up, but until then, I'm just caring about Classics and any Prime figures I like.

    I am because I am a completest which means I must have absolutely everything that is a Transformer.

    My Priority #1 is a bit of Prime Cyberverse and anticipation of Botshots wave 2 - and some 3rd party stuff.

    I may try to get some more Animated leftovers and maybe a bit of the bigger prime stuff.

    I should I suppose get the Movie leftover I need but I find it hard to want to pay a premium for them so I tend to get them when I stumble across them rather than actively seek them out... I really must remember to buy that grey Topspin repaint & Airraid for example.

    I suppose I'll buy 4th Movie toys as they will probably be cheap at some point but I can't see me Running out to buy another Skids or Mudflap for £12.99 and considering how they over produce anything Bumblebee related I guess there is no need to bother there.

    I was actually thinking about hoovering up some MV3 Activators and Stealth Force soon now it's half price and even Kreo (which is also cheap at the mo).

    So Movie is mostly in the buy when it's cheap category now rather than marked as any kind of must have, it's well down the food chain compared to say something like Cyclops. and is actually lower now than Crossovers toys.

    I will try to get more but I'm not going to be paying a premium for much of it if I can help it.


    I would still like to get some bits and pieces though like selected Legends, some of the boxed sets, and the odd one I missed like Armorhide and NEST EVAC.

    But I guess I would have preferred a bigger gap between movies so it was not less interesting than it likely will be when the movies rolled around again.

    I'm much more interested in FOC/Generations than any potential Movie 4 toy unless Bay relents and stick the Dinobots in it say.

    Oh well you only need another 3,000+ then - Laugh.

    I hope you have a few spare rooms that stuff takes up some serious room.

    Weren't you the same OP who was just incredibly happy that that movie lines were "cancial"?

    And FYI, yes, I will still collect the movie lines. Because a lot of the toys are awesome, with the exception of some DotM ones which could've been better (Here's looking at you Voyager Prime).

    I definitely will be collecting Movie styled transformers. They're not my favorite, but they are very nice.
