If you could only choose one...

Postby Cyberjet #7 » Wed Feb 13, 2008 3:27 pm

If you could only choose one, which would you pick? And why?

1. Encore Megatron $90
2. Encore Prime $90
3. Reissue Galvatron $90
4. TRU Reissue Ultra Magnus $75

I'm leaning toward Megs, but just wanted some other input. Thank you.

Weapon: Reciprocating Laser Cannon
Which Reissue Galvatron? The one with the anime colors and the matrix or just a plain reissue?

I think it's just the regular Galvatron that is the same as the original one (same colors, same mold).

I know he came out recently and he's the one I see commonly floating around on-line.

The "regular" Galvatron reissue is actually the anime-accurate version. The original toy-colored Galvatron is a more expensive e-Hobby exclusive, which was a nice change of pace compared to the reissue Astrotrain fiasco. So, it's actually more expensive for you to get one that's identical to the G1 toy.

I would go for Galvatron. Neither myself or any of my friends had one when we were young. All of the others I have in some form already.

Galvatron
Megatron
Ultra Magnus
Optimus

I have them all, and to me that's the order from best to least best as all of them pretty much rock!

i dunno, but $90 for Encore Megs and Prime seems tad expensive, seeing as hobby shops here (and they are known for OPVERPRICING figs) sell them for only about $60 each.

unless you find Encores at a steal, i'd go with Glavatron and UM.

Oh... yeah, this one must not be the exclusive. I'm pretty positive about that. So, Galvatron seems to be the winner so far; is $90 a reasonable price for him? I knew the Prime and Megs were alittle steep...

Weapon: Sniper Rifle
Well, because I have neither of them and they're the most cost-effective, I'd go with Ultra Magnus and Galvatron. I can see the draw of the MP figures, though...

Galvatron. Cause Galvatron is awesome.
Magnus is 2nd.
Then Prime.
Megatron is last, because I hate the figure. If I could put him lower than last, I would.

I'd say the purple Galvatron. He yells at you in Japanese. Can the other reissues make that claim??








Hell no they can't.

I have the Takara version of RID Optimus Prime, and he does the same thing, what more could you ask for!!!

Galvatron FTW.

I have the Takara RID Magnus and he does the same thing. But Magnus and Prime, I'd say they're just yelling, and not yelling AT you.


Galvatron, he makes you feel bad for things you do when he yells. Then you get a time out.
