Honestly, I love them all. It's a great mold and I have every variant that I'm aware of, but hands down for me, the Armada version is the coolest, only because she looks sooo eeeevil :twisted: in those colors. It's really striking.

I could never pick just one though. I'm a Beast Wars variants freak, especially when it comes to the Transmetals/Metals line. You should see my Beast Wars 'Dinobots' collection. I've got all of them, including the ones from Armada, Universe, and Beast Machines.

I'm obsessed, I need help. I have like 6 versions of Transmetal Rhinox and too many Transmetal Rattraps to count. Maybe someday I'll share some pics of my collection so you can see how truly obsessive and disturbed I am :P.

But yeah, seriously, Armada. That dark purple/gray and the bright blood red with the little splashes bright blue just look amazing.

I concur. :) Plus, the little minicon is pretty decent. I'm not sure if this is a common thing, but my Armada Airrazor is mis-assembled. The left shoulder panel with the ball joint is assembled backwards, so it can't fold in like it should. (and as a result can't transform!)

I would agree the Armada version has the best colors. The only thing I dont like is that bright blue on her. I kind of wish they would have toned it down just a bit on her face. :MAXIMAL:

I also used a Transmetal Airazor for a kitbash/custom Deluxe size Terrorsaur. It doesn't transform into beast mode, but it looks pretty cool standing with my other season 1 Predacons.

Hehe, I can't blame you, it's a great mold and all of them look really good. Fear not, it's a common mold to come by and usually isn't too expensive, so even if you decide you want more than one version, it shouldn't cost you too much. There are 4 variants total:


Armada Airazor looks pretty spiffy next to Armada Cheetor since they share the darker color schemes.

Seibertron sponsor Toyarena has the Japanese Takara Metals Airazor for $25+shipping right now and if you check ebay, I'm sure you can find any version of her that you want for a relatively cheap price.

It's a great mold in my opinion so I think you'll be happy with any version you decide to get.

I think I picked up Armada Airrazor (complete), Terrorsaur (complete), and Classics Starscream (sans Null Rays) for around $14 shipped on ebay. I'd say your chances of getting a good price is pretty high.
