I've got both and the FE is much better. The only real negative thing about the FE figure is the chest is a little wonky, but you can make it work if your futz with it a bit.

I've head some people say the PRiD figure is more screen accurate, but I don't see it. It has terrible hollow limbs and a sorta gorilla look. His arms are especially bad, they're too long and they look mangled. It does have nice ankle joints and I like the head sculpt better, but it still falls way short of the FE.

I think people say PRiD is more accurate because of the legs but I have passed on it to hold out for the FE and it was worth the gamble (thanks to Mkall for getting me one!). FE has the right proportions whereas PRiD has very short upper arms. FE also has the arm weapons on both sides.

In short: FE all the way.

I have both the PRID and SDCC one. I like both to be honest. Yes the legs are better on the PRID one but the FE has the cool weapons. I wish you could kibble the two together. If you could, get both. You really wouldn't be that disappointed. If you were to get one, go FE though.

I don't care for the show so as far as looks alone I gotta go with PRID. I think posability is really good but the one thing the FE has over PRID is weapons. I much prefer a good blaster/gun over anything but that's not to say that his war-hammer isn't bad either. I think PRID's feet look really unique in making the over all look better than PE.

In the end it's all up to you but I suggest PRID as the better choice. You could consider getting the new generations CJ with the G1 head, I'm just saying...'nuff said! :VEHI:

First Edition. My PRiD Cliffjumper's hip ball joints are really loose and I can't pose him worth a damn. Common problems? Probably not, but it cheeses me off.
