I'll chime in again and say for me, animated style would help my wallet.
I'll also be collecting some Halo stuff this year, so not buying animated style would free up some money for Halo and other toy lines, like Marvel Legends, Marvel Super Heroes, Movie Transformers.
Thankfully Halo will be limited in what I get and I haven't been getting all of the Marvel Legends figs now. The Marvel Super heroes figs are relatively inexpensive and one-time purchases so those will help keep the budget down. THere really isn't many Transformers left I'd like to see made from the movie. Some changes in class size yes and the Mountain Dew transformer, but that's about it.
So if the Clone Wars figures are animated, I really will be saving a bit. Now that I'm basically not army building anymore either (except the Kashyyyk clone), I won't have a need for all the clones that undoubtedly will be out for this subline.
I'm actually looking forward to having some money for a change.
Can't wait to see the stuff coming out of Toyfair so I can plan for all of this.
