The only bundles I saw worth buying were: Sideswipe/Laserbeak and Thundercracker/Laserbeak.
Sideswipe is one of my favorite autobots, the DOTM figure does no justice. The new Generations seem weak, with Sky Shadow and Junkion (is that his name) both repaints. TF: Prime, is awesome. I hate my targets for still not having waves 4, 5, and 6 of DOTM I WANT MAI SOUNDWAVE!!!!!!
well I didn't say the bundles were worth it. Lol. Personally I've had all the DOTM guys I wanted for months. I only bought some back in October because the $5 coupons were out, which made getting the Ark set and several commander class figures more worth while (Ark was $20, and the commander class guys were $3.60 a piece). Even managed to snag the legion class pack with Bee, Soundwave and bonus figure Rodiums for something like $4 or $5 with the coupon.
The movie Trilogy line will have my interests when it comes out because of Optimus with his trailer and a G1 inspired Wheeljack, who has a head sculpt that doesn't look like a decaying zombie. I think a G1 inspired Ratchet and Soundwave have also been announced but I haven't see pictures of them, so I'm neither here nor there on buying them as of right now.
Already have 4 TF: Prime toys - NYCC Bee & Arcee, regular Arcee and Starscream. I'm looking forward to the rest of the line. I had been hoping they'd be out by now, simply because I would have gotten at least one or two others for x-mas, but no such luck :/
On the note of repaints, some people like them. I think Sky Shadow is pretty cool to be honest. I skipped Junkheap (his group/affiliation is with the Junkion's) because I have Wreck-Gar and while he would make a nice little addition to my collection he looks too much like Wreck-Gar in both color and sculpt for me to care. If I'm going to buy a repaint it has to be a cool repaint and/or a character I love (such as Generations Wheeljack, who was a repaint of Turbo Tracks (or whatever his name was)).
I wish Hasbro would release Striker OP in the States...I missed out on ROTF Leader Optimus cuz I didn't collect back then. I don't really like commander class figures, and I prefer just deluxes and up. The only DOTM toys I bought were Shockwave and Topspin. Yeah what happened to "December release dates" or whatever. The only repaints I like are cool repaints as well. Breakaway -->Thrust was totally awesome being that breakaway had the WORST color scheme I've ever seen. The only Generations figures i bothered to get were Drift (NINJA ROBOT THATS ALSO A CAR) and Warpath, only cuz people said he was really good and hard to find and I saw him at a target. Sorry if this offends you, but Generations Wheeljack was terrible. Those feet gave me nightmares.
