While I could see it happening with a G1 Megatron as a temporary thing, I'm gonna skip the figure: too big. =;

"If you try to please everyone, nobody will like it" - a very wise guy.

Top 5 Priorities:

Agreed. I'm happy with my Classics Voyager. They did Jetfire right by making him a Leader. Unless there's a Leader-class Optimus Prime that, and someone please quote me for future references, legitimately looks good in the works, the Generation One version of the mold is going to have to be a pass for me, simply due to financial reasons.

Though, as a huge fan of Armada and its sequels, I might look into the Armada version of the mold...

No, I think it's an interesting turn for the character. IDW have been planning this idea for a while now. Yes, the "evil-turned-good" story might be considered a trope, but when well done, it's still an interesting one. I'm enjoying the idea of Starscream realizing his dream of leadership through political intrigue as well. Who knows how long this will last, or if Megatron is just playing a long con as usual, but it'll be an interesting story, I'm sure.

Then this is the worst Tigerhawk figure ever. It looks nothing like the cartoon version. :P

Motto: "FOR THE EARTH!!!"
Weapon: Saber Blade
Even though I was at BotCon and got all the souvenir figures there, I just ordered more from the Club Store.

Five of the Clones 2-pack, just to get toys of Cutback, Drydock, Neurotoxin, Stormcharge, Wheel Lock, Boltcaster, Lockpick, Skyduster, and Turbolift to go with my Thunderclap and Rolling Thunder.

My wallet is now in a coma on life support. :oops:

But once it's healed from this sorry state, I'll go after a 2010 Axor figure and maybe a Beat Wars Neo Break figure (for Rockhopper) to complete the pirate crew (not sure if I'll hunt down a Tidal Wave or not, though, since it was but a lifeless vessel in the story).

Beast Wars II Moon's white redeco (for Eclipse), however, is out of the question.

I just found out about one more Star Seeker who has a toy of some kind. Thunderlane (and his bird-like companion Ferrocious) is a repurpose of Transformers Go! Budora.
