MP10 (Hasbro) Optimus $100
MP13 Soundwave $159
MP15 Ravage and Rumble $60
Encore Fort Max $350

I'm hoping I can get the money together for them anyway. Optimus is already paid for... or will be when it's shipped out, but I had enough saved up when the pre-order hit. I'm close to securing the funds for Soundwave, should have it in the next month, then it's Fort Max and MP15 saving time...

I'd really like to have MP Sideswipe too but I want Fort Max more. I'm hoping Sides' will be around after I secure the money needed for Max.

My list is empty. :shock: :shock: :shock: Really.

Well, I haven't opened my Vehicon and Dreadwing yet. So I'm targeting to open Vehicon in the end of October and then leave Dreadwing for Christmas.

It's crazy to see it spelled out in a list like that! I'm right there with you though. I do think's it's good to do this so you know exactly what you're spending and maybe to cut some things that you really don't want/need (that's a fine line with TF collecting sometimes)! ;)

Here's my list for now:

MP-10 (Hasbro/preordered) = $100
TFPrime Wave 4/5 Set from BBTS (UM, Thundertron, Skyquake, OP) = $90
FOC G2 Bruticus from Amazon = $50 ($10 giftcard)
MP Sideswipe = $84
MP Soundwave = $170

That's everything that I have preordered at the moment. As you can see, it adds up quickly. I'd like to also get the MP cassettes for Soundwave and since he's my favorite Con I'll probably get them. Then there are a few deluxe FOC figures I want (Starscream, Sideswipe & Kickback) but given the price increase discussed lately I won't get these unless they're cheaper on TFSource or BBTS.

Needless to say, I feel your pain!

Motto: "The only good is knowledge, and the only evil is ignorance."
Weapon: Dual Bladed Sword
My list is subject to availability, which is very poor here in the Netherlands :oops: Just to humor myself:

Prime (stuck at wave 1)
Nothing, may have to order online

Generations (may order online, it's cheaper)
Shockwave (€25 or $32)
Autobot Jazz (€25 or $32)

Arms Micron
AMW series (€6 or $7-$8 a pop)
Terrorcon Bumblebee (€45 or $58)
Terrorcon Cliffjumper (€40 or $52)
Gaia Unicron (€60 or $78)
Ironhide (€28 or $36)
Megatron (€28 or $36)
Skywarp (€28 or $36)

That's not what I'm getting yet, it's what I plan on getting in the near future. With a €100 budget, what would be ideal... :-?
