    I totally hear you.

    Part of me wants to buy Ultimate Op and all those Leader Autobots just cause they are awesome and cool looking, despite the fact that I don't have the room or a pre-existing niche in my collection for 'em!

    I mean, I'm basically Generations' bitch, but movieverse I'm generally fairly selective. I'll probably make most of my purchasing decisions after the movie so I can hang some character onto them.

    Trying to keep it to, one or maybe two Leaders, only one Voyager, a small handful of Cyberverse. And there's really only a couple of Deluxes I want (Ratchet, Barricade, maaaybe Crankcase).

    I also am telling myself no Prime for now. That's allowed to change if the franchise really does have legs, and is awesome.

    Surprisingly the Optimus Prime in that line doesnt look as good as I thought he would be considering that IMO, OP looks the best in TF:p rime. This is still a deluxe they need a better version of that, which Hasbro/Takara probably will.... later on

    Anyone else kind of wondering if the Ferrari will ever actually be a toy?

    Wouldn't be the first time something like that happened.

    I feel like my wallets got a reprieve. Out of everything shown, It's just Ironhide and Sentinel Prime so far.

    Everything else, i'm either happy with what i've got already or am waiting for something better to come along.

    There was a walmart listing for Euro car so it's too early to write it off just yet.

    Agree on this, they showed a metric ton of stuff but my actual must buy's boil down to two leader's, one voyager, one deluxe, one scout and a few HA basic's.

    Edit: Not including the Prime subline, those are all buy's.

    I'm the other side of the coin and feeling a bit underwhelmed.

    But in a way that's actually kind of a good thing because the flood of cool Generations stuff lately is going to be overwhelming when it actually hits here. Then in October I'll be starting a Transformers Prime collection when the figures hit so a wee break from it all might actually do me some good.

    I'm disappointed not to see any generations on display.
    Hope they're going to pu them out later.
    Wanted to see painted warpath as well as arcee.
    Not sure i believe hasbro when they say gen will continue through 2011.
    They said same thing about animated in 2009, an then promptly canceled it.
    Here's hoping.

    Thanks. I wonder with the Target logo, it will be hard to sell in other stores? Also with ferrari and benz bots, companies working out royalities fees?

    Nope, my intrest in the Bayformers style has admittedly declined but I still expected there to be a few things I'd be intrested in buying but so far there's not a single thing that looks like it'd be worth paying UK retail or import prices for.

    I'm a little disappointed in Prime Prime. The chest looks...odd. He's the worst of the Prime figs, imo, which is sad because the animation model has a ton of potential, but I understand it's probably got the most anime magic involved in the transformation and bot mode.
