I don't see myself purchasing anything other than the new TMNT figures (maybe the regular basic figures, but definitely the ones based off the the original cartoon), MP Soundwave and Buzzsaw, and eight or nine or so McFarlane Sportspicks (mostly older figures).

What are you most looking forward to in the second half of '12? =)

Marvel legends punisher, x force and strife. Marvel universe x factor set as well.

I'd really like the joe stuff from joecon to hit earlier.

I plan on getting the Transformers FOC figures, though I have to say I'm incredibly disapointed in seeing that the figures have shrunk down to Dark of the Moon figure size. They're a lot smaller than the War for Cybertron figures and cost a lot more, too. I had heard rumor that the real reason why all those Generations figures are Asia exclusive is because Hasbro doesn't want to release that scale any more and it seems to be true.

That aside, I plan on also picking up some more Bot Shots figures, that's about it at normal retail. Still have the rest of the Voltron set waiting and I hope to get the SDCC exclusive Combaticons if I can be on HTS at the right time.

Here are my current import preorders for the rest of the year:

Transformers DX Gum Fortress Maximus series box (8 pieces)
figma Black Rock Shooter (TV Animation ver.)
figma Leonmitchelli Galette des Rois (Dog Days)
figma Princess of the Crystal (Mawaru Penguindrum)
figma Samus Aran (Metroid)
Tenori Tiger (Toradora!)
D-Arts Konohana Sakuya (Persona 4)

figma Yukiko Amagi (Persona 4)
figma Tsubasa Hanekawa (Bakemonogatari)
figma Inori Yuzuriha (Guilty Crown)

figma Hibiki Tachibana (Senki Zesshou Symphogear)
figma Silver Crow (Accel World)
figma Kiritsugu Emiya (Fate/Zero)
D-Arts Jiraiya (Persona 4)

Transformers MP Sideswipe
ex:ride Motored Cuirassier (Fate/Zero)
figma Karen Araragi (Bakemonogatari)
figma Link (The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword)
figma Black Lotus (Accel World)
figma Reimu Hakurei (Touhou Project)

Nendoroid Teddy (Persona 4)
figma Kuroyukihime (Accel World)

Transformers MP Red Alert
Transformers Cap Bots Autobot
Transformers Cap Bots Decepticon

figma get delayed monthly so I don't expect all of them to be released every month.

I'm pretty happy with all of the Marvel Universe offerings shown for the rest of the year, and especially excited about Nighthawk and the Masters of Evil. Short of Mockingbird, they topped my want list and I'm frankly shocked to be getting them. Just hope the Masters are as easy to get as Invaders and not like the Joe exclusives.

And with dc currently in the dumpster, that's really about it.

Hobbit toys, though these could also be a colossal disappointment.

All Marvel Legends, hopefully they will release a fourth assortment by years end. Also, certain SW Vintage.

I'd forgotten about Figma Link and Samus. I might not be able to resist those. :b

For me, it's easy...Marvel Minimates Wave 47 - The Brood Wave.

One of my favorite X-men storylines, great army builder wave and one of the coolest variant sets of the year. The only question is, how many Brood is too much.

Looking forward to:

New Turtles line (especially since it looks like we'll actually get a complete set of the first wave from the start; the last two turtle sub-lines didn't even do that)

Frosta and the generic Snake Men from MOTUC, as well as most of the other offerings shown so far for that line (except Laser Lot)

Baby Godzilla, Rodan and Ghidorah from the SH Monsterarts line. I know these things are expensive as all get out, but I have been wanting Zilly figures like this since I was a kid, and these are amazing little works of art.

Platinum and Tin from Club Infinite Earths (if BBTS ever puts them up; I guess they aren't sure if they are a regular or deluxe figure yet)
