    I'll probably get more than I really want, though Hot Spot is the only must-have for me.

    Swerve, Springer, Hot Spot and Powerdive i already have.

    Sandstorm is a maybe....and someone suggested Brawl would make a decent Roughstuff.

    All the Legion/Legends, just Brawl from the scouts, just Hot Spot from the Voyagers, and at least one of each of the deluxes, possibly multiple Cliffs if the head does indeed fit the Bumblebee mold.

    Brawl is Flak, and Breacher is Flak's repaint, Powerbomb.

    I'm really surprised by how much I've come to like the Wheelie design on the Jazz mold. I already knew I was getting Swerve, Hot Spot and Legends Hoist, but Wheelie's as much of a "must buy" now for me as those three.

    I like the mold already, so I'll be getting Powerdive, even though it's still more of a belated Movieverse toy than a Classics version of the G2 Powerdive. G2 Megs and Springer will probably be impulse buys provided that I see them.

    Already have the Deluxes, and they are a lot better than I had anticipated. I will try to get another Swerve and Wheelie if I run into them, to have a set in car mode. Will get the two Legends that aren't in the 4-pack, and will get Megatron and 2 Hotspots (have Henkei Inferno, Universe Inferno, United Grapple and Hasbro Grapple, so I need to have one of these in vehicle mode for the display). Now bring on the Hauler repaint Takara.

    I've checked TRU a few times now and no luck at all. I don't want to visit eBay for these . . . but I probably will.

    yeah I got all the deluxes last week. found 3 at retail and another local collector hooked me up with a wheelie.

    they are really, really good figures. these are the figures you should be wanting to pay $15 a pop for, and encouraging hasbro to develop more of. I know they are just repaints but each of the 4 released so far just work so nicely, I can't give them enough praise.

    hope to find my g2 megs and hotspot voyagers soon. those are the last 2 that I need. I will probably get a few more if I see them, but those 2 voyagers are a must for me (love the hftd bludgeon and classics inferno molds).

    Sure, I'm as Geared up as I'll ever be for these to hit toys r us.

    Giftset:
    G2 themed Optimus Prime, Jazz, then Thundercracker and motorbreath.

    Its an incredibly good value preordered off of Hasbrotoyshop so long as you don't mind experimental color schemes.

    Legions:
    Hoist
    Silverstreak
    (because the other two are in a giftset)

    Great that the classics legions are getting some quaint weapons packed in.

    Scouts:
    Laserbeak
    Brawl
    Sandstorm

    Not tremendously exciting. Partially because I already army built a lot of these molds.
    I really have trouble seeing brawl from that mold but its different enough from breacher I guess.
    Still if I can find enough laserbeaks that would be a bit better than my Squadron of sunspots.

    Deluxes:

    Swerve
    Wheelie
    Springer
    cliffjumper

    Actually considering how much I'm enjoying IDW's more than meets the eye books. That Swerve is really the one I'm hyped for. Springers cool. Though I'm told they made him much more pinheaded than the old tomahawk sculpt.

    Voyagers:
    Megatron
    powerdive
    Hotspot

    Megatrons kind of an Alternity idea. I like the mold enough to pick up one for completionism. But the others I'm way into grabing a extra sealed sample of because they are some of the best looking voyagers this year.

    Hotspot is the only must-have for me, though I would immediately switch his fists for Grapple's hands so that he and Inferno match.

    If the dude that runs robot kingdom is to be believed, the US isn't gonna get the voyagers. I'm skeptical of a guy trying to sell these at an inflated price reporting this news, but you never know...

    haha. I believe it when I (don't) see it.
    all it takes is one sighting and that goes out the window.
