    For me:

    - Quantron : This is a must and I just need to know which retailer to preorder. BBTS shipping is getting up there for me.

    - Scoria : This is a must and I'm also looking for free shipping here.

    - Heavy Noisy & Strike sly : Also a must and looks like not much of an option here here but to go with BBTS.

    - Ferex's next up limb : Already own the first 3 and I can't pass the rest.

    - Kronos : Not a must but I want it. This can be a nice present for soon upcoming B-day. I just need to give her a hint.

    - igears seekers: not really a must unless if I can sell something to get the fund for it. Besides, head sculpt, revealed elbow ball joints , paint appz etc..dont work for me make these figures not really a high priority. Still waiting for TakHas's coneheads.

    - Utopia : I'm not really a big fan of $400-single figure. But if I hit lottery...maybe. Still much better looking than TakHas version imo.

    - UT Galvatron : a plain No.

    - Hexatron black version : No.

    - TW megatron v2 : no.

    - TW black orion : no.

    So based on that so far, it's gonna be around $1k for me and I'm not even half way ready yet :banghead:

    Mania King, Quantron, Brave Max, Feral Rex, Hegemon, and TW Nemesis. Might pick up Utopia further down the road.

    I'm going lighter on 3P than I once did. After finishing up Feral Rex, I may give a good hard look to the FOC Dinobots (not-Sludge looks nice), and see if Toyworld gets anywhere on that larger IDW bomber Megatron.

    (yeah, and i got MI Bluster & Trench on order)

    Products from FT = MP Dinobots and Shockwave
    Products from MMC = Feral Rex, Hex, Fembots, and maybe Seraph
    Product = G1 style Updated Omega Supreme from a good 3rd party company
    Product = MP Style Triple Changers
    Product = Takara MP Cars and Minibots, and MP Megs v2 or MP Galv
    Product = MP Style Skyfire and/or Jetfire

    Many other products I want, like Utopia, but cant afford when my priority is above first.

    Well,

    I am waiting on Scoria to get here from CP. Then I will keep on buying the FT Dinobots until all are out.

    Finish up Rex, but then I am done with combiners until there is an MP one. They are cool, but I get sick of waiting on them. I am tempted to get the Warbo Brute. But I have a feeling there will be a Takara MP one coming soon.

    Thinking about getting Kronos, but I am still on the fence.

    I am on the fence about Mania King V2. I think he would look great in a display with Rex and Hex. But I am moving my collection towards MP.

    Then I will be getting all of the upcoming official MPs.

    Quantron, Warning Line, and Gauntlet are the only 3P I have currently preordered. MMC Fembots, Planet X Neptune, and FansProject LookAtMe are next on my list.

    Finishing up Feral Rex and passing on combiners for the rest of the year. Quantron looks great, but he's not a must have for me.
    Utopia is pre-ordered.
    Black Hexatron is on the way cause I missed the 1st run.
    UT Mania King - Pass
    Dinobots - Waiting to see if the Scoria QC issues are limited.
    The rest is going towards this year's MP releases.

    Well I don't know if my wallet INTENDS to do anything, but I will probably just be buying MP's and a couple generations figures. There has been too much of Has/Tak one upping 3P toys at a much lower price lately. Springer destroys Defender and Brainstorm looks to be comparable or better than both of the 3P ones. For the same price, I could get 2 3P figures or 2 Voyagers, 1 Deluxe, and a smalll MP. Citizen Stack didn't even cross my radar because I knew MP Magnus was on the way. Swerve/Trashtalk, Gears/Cogwheel, Arcee/Azalea are all comparable figures if price is an issue. If I had more money for my hobby, I would buy lots of stuff and have duplicate characters, but I am confined by display space and money.

    Yeah sorry guys I meant your wallet's attention and not intention. Talking and typing at the same time is definitely not my forte.

    Now that Scoria is on its way to me, Maketoy's Quantron is at the top of my want list. I've already canceled a few pre-orders (like MP08X) to allocate the funds.

    Just gonna stick with MMC's stuff for the most part. I'd like to get Quantron but dropping that much money at once is a bit much.

    UT - I'm probably going to buy the new deco of Mania King.

    TFFPC - If it actually gets produced, I would buy the Astrotrain they rendered.

    MT - I'm on the fence about Quantron. At the very least I'm waiting until after I see some reviews, but even then I'll still have WB03 to consider. I'll probably get a Computron eventually, but I don't know which one yet.

    FT - I would definitely buy Quake Wave if it ever gets re-released, but I don't want to pay ebay prices for it.

    X2 - I want that Gasket/Grommet/Cog for sure.

    I will also buy Highbrow as soon as anyone makes one.
