Just thought I'd update this since the movie era has expanded


What are your Best and Worst toys of Age of Extinction
Best:

*LA01 Battle Command & Evasion Mode Optimus Prime
*Dinobots Snarl & Scorn
*Hound
-Honorable mention to LA12 Stinger and Voyager Galvatron for not being as crap as I expected

Worst
*Deluxe & One-Step Changer Lockdown
*Crosshairs
*Slash
-Dishonorable mention for Leader Grimlock for not fulfilling my dreams of what the toy could be


What was your first one, and when?

May 10th 2014 - picked up Leader Grimlock and Deluxes Scorn, Slug & Crosshairs at Toyworld on a shopping trip to Bendigo


What ones are you currently most looking for and why?
Junkheap - just so I can have another AOE Decepticon character


Show us some pics of your collection of the ones you have.

The ROTF line was basically the high watermark of this entire 30+ year franchise for my money in terms of toy construction and engineering.

The quality dipped markedly in DOTM, though they raised the Human Alliance game to a whole new level at this time.

Counting 2010's HFTD line as part of the movieverse-

Best
HFTD Leader Starscream
ROTF Leader Optimus Prime (+ any of the premium repaints)
DOTM Human Alliance Roadbuster
DOTM Human Alliance Soundwave
ROTF Human Alliance Jazz
ROTF Deluxe Dirge
ROTF Voyager Long Haul
ROTF Voyager Mixmaster

Worst
ROTF Blazemaster/Evac
DOTM Deluxe Roadbuster

What was your first one and when?
The day that they were released I managed to convince my dad (in my pre license holding days) to nip down to a nearby ToysRUs where I bought Deluxe Barricade, Brawl, Blackout, Jazz and Bonecrusher with leftover birthday money.

What ones are you currently most looking for and why?
I've got (and subsequently sold mostly) everything I was after. Of figures that exist I regret missing out on DOTM leader Ironhide, and DOTM leader Sentinel Prime.

Of hypothetical toys I was disappointed we never got a proper Dino/Mirage at any size point (would have killed for a pre DOTM standards deluxe or a Human Alliance figure) and a not garbage Lockdown.
