2008 Expensive year


Recommended Posts

Being that I collect a little bit of everything, I have decided to limit what I actually buy this year in terms of TF, GIJOE, DC universe, and Marvel stuff.


I am so impressed with TF, and I am hooked on the animated cartoon. As it stands, I think it is pretty certain that I will have to budget my money. I know myself well enough to get the folling items:


1) Voyager Animated Starscream ( my favorite and a must!)

2) Voyager Optimus Prime

3) Leader Bulkhead

4) Leader Megatron

5) Deluxe Bumblebee

6) Deluxe Ratchet

7) Delexe Soundwave

8) Deluxe Black Arachnia

9) Deluxe Prowl

10) Leader Ultra Magnus-have not seen him but I know I will want him

11) Deluxe Blitzwing-have not seen him but I want him

12) Deluxe Lockdown

13) Deluxe Oilslick

14) Supreme Optimus-(Maybe)


If they make Arcee, Ironhide, or Swoop, I will get those too.





1) Prowl/ (my favorite)

2) Sunstreaker

3) Galvatron-I like the size. Besides, I am very happy with my Energon Galvatron

4) Powerglide-I wish they had just painted him red-maybe I will wait to see if he comes out as a replaint.

All of the Universe for sure. Right now, that's what I'm looking forward to the most.


I may have actually talked myself into getting a few of the Animated figs but I'm going to be very selective as opposed to most other lines.


I see it as a good chance to keep up with a reissue line for a change, so I'm going to try and keep up with these encores as long as I can. Sky Lynx and Omega Supreme are definitely going to be cool seeing that I never had either of them.


They may be the only ones I open from the encore line depending on what all they put out.

I think this is the first time that I've wanted nearly all of the toys from the main line, plus I want most of the universe stuff, and robot heroes..so yeah, this'll be an expensive year.

Haven't bought any new TF's since well before the movie came out, but I like some, just a few, of the new classics, like galvatron and prowl. The others I'll definately pass on. The animated line for sure. Those just look horrible.

For sure going to get Classics Prowl, Sunstreaker, and Galvatron. I'll pick up Octane too after I get those guys. Doubt I'll get any of the animated stuff, and I don't really want a giant white Powerglide or an Onslaught that doesn't combine.

Oh man, the 25th GI Joe line has really cut into my TF buying... I still need to get the Encore Ironhide and Ratchet, as well as Jazz when he comes out. I'd also like to pick up the MP Grimlock if he looks good, and maybe that Omega Supreme reissue.

So far I'm only planning on buying MP Grimlock (unless he's severely under-sized) as far as 2008 stuff is concerned.



...............I'm still trying to track down a reasonably priced (prefferably loose) Alt Wheeljack :(

I'm wrapping up my TF movie collection now. I just got my hands on the "Capture of Bumbelbee" diarama today at the KB in Hamilton Mall.


Dudes I'm telling my loot is thin these days from all the buying! I had been hopeing to attend Botcon but that's looking less & less like a reality.


Far as the movie TFs go, I'm still want all the Premium edt. stuff, & maby some of the Unleashed turnarounds. But after that, i'll be concentrating on encore reissues like encore 9&10!


I can almost see my self holding that Omega Supreme box now!!!!!!!
