What plug-ins do you use?

I know it's not a medium format question and also know there is a Digital Processing section on the forum, but I'm specifically interested to learn what plug-ins, if any, 645D users are using to good effect and find worthwhile.
I use Lightroom 4 primarily, Photoshop occasionally (but I'm pretty useless at using it!), and have the Nik suite but rarely use it (though my wife uses Silver Efex regularly). I also recently bought Photomatix which I'm getting to grips with and find rather useful.
I've been reading about Alien Skin Exposure 4.0 (which seems quite expensive at $249 I think), and also Topaz (which I know nothing about but people seem to like, and is also at a discount until 31st July).
I don' know DxO but don't think it specifically supports the 645D.
What do people recommend?
It was reading about the demise of Velvia 50 that set me on this thought track, plus often struggling to get the developing 'pop' I'm wanting!

Topaz, Nik, Tiffen, Alien Skin, Flaming Pear. Redfield, about 1000 others. I have a lot of them, shrug. But the first 4 I really like and use a lot. I used to use Extensis stuff a lot too but the others are covering all it does that so I don't really need them anymore.

None. I like Photoshop a la mode.
