so if you had 400.00 in your pp account for a TF shopping spree what would you get??
Ultra Magnus Skywarp two pack, Universe Inferno, Universe Smokescreen, Universe Cosmos, RTS Windcharger, and some random 3rd party stuff
Honestly, I was at that point. I had over 2k in my PP, and I made a thread asking the board what to do. I got some pretty sound advice, and ended up buying a few things to resell an then using the rest to pay for things like Hercules.
Basically, if you can't think of anything immediately: Just don't spend it, because obviously there's nothing stand out that you really want. With all of these third parties making new things everyday, sit on the funds and use it when something you really want comes about.
all the mps you dont have
Probably got for 3rd party stuff.
The iGear coneheads would be a great buy (Already got). MP-10 (Which I wouldn't get otherwise, simply because I've already got two of the previous MP Prime mold).
Great time to get anything you've missed out on by Fansproject, or perhaps Mastermind Creations Knight Morpher (There's a Shattered Glass version preorder up, and Commander and Annihilator are being reissued), or the Reflector set
If I couldn't save it for anything more important, like bills, I would probably jump on some things I'm tempted by. Warbot, and the Protector armor for example. Although I might just save it for the Maketoys Not-Devy. I would be tempted by the TFC Not-Devy if it weren't so big and so expensive.
Some help for Hercules
Personally, getting TFCC Devs is high on my list. But I keep a list import items from MP, Classics/2rd Party, Animated, and G1 Reissues that I would like to eventually get. When I have extra cash, I pick some of them up. Making a list in priority makes things nice and easy. However, I would bank some of it incase something goes on sale on BBTS that you like. There are a few items on my list that have been reduced a few times on there, but I keep monitoring the stock and hope for one more additional markdown. There is nothing wrong in waiting, and when something hits your pricerange, jump on it.
Out of what I still want?
Henkei Disruptor Rijie, half the United line, and MP-01L.
At first, I was thinking about saving up for one of those late vintage Japanese G1 exclusives like Star Saber, but then I realized, no way I'd pay that much money for one toy. Unless it's Fortress Maximus.
I'd probably get some Micromaster bases instead.

In the other hand, Trypticon.
Anything of the following list:
BOTCON Pyro, Clench, Bugbite, Dreadwind, Sky-Byte, Rapido, Sharkticons (x3), Alpha Trion, Heinkei Disruptor Rijie, FP Insecticons.
UM/SW two-pack that's selling for insane amounts of money, Fracture, Classics Jetfire...
I think $400 would be pretty close to enough to get G1 Wreckgar, G1 Springer, G1 Gnaw, both Battlechargers, Alternators Nemesis Prime and possibly have enough money left over for G1 Erector. That would clear out all but a couple of items off of my "wants" list, give me a complete Alternators collection and every figure I actually want from G1.
iGear Thundercracker pre-order.
Mp-10, ultra magnus and skywarp 2 pack, city commander armor and upgrade kit for it, g1 sixshot, both knight morphers, that tfc EX-002 Battle Rollar. thats all that comes to the top of my mind after looking at my lists.
City Commander , Delicate Warrior , and Exgraver!
Classics Ultra Magnus/Skywarp two-pack, MISB Transmetal 2 Blackarachnia, and BM Night Viper. Spend the rest on GoBots; maybe a complete Monsterous set is in order...
