    THS02 is awsum!

    But seriously I can't say. Do you have the originals of those G1 figures?
    I'd get Perceptor if it were me. But THS-2 has a lot of play value.

    I'd get the insecticons now, as they're the most likely to increase in price, while ths 02 is easy to find.

    As awesome as THS-02 is, I'd say go with a reissue. The insecticons reissue. They're the 'oldest' of the 3 reissues you've mentioned so, theoretically the hardest to find.

    While mindblowing, keep in mind that THS-02 Prime is extremely fragile and really sucky in vehicle mode.

    i, er, already have the vintage insecticons (albeit in less than stellar condition), so again, i'd be buying it for completism sake.

    ive never had hot rod, kup nor wheelie before tho'.

    Do you buy TFs to complete your collection or to play with? Which is more important, a one-figure-closer-to-complete collection or a toy you can spend hours playing with and then trying to transform back to a truck (which doesn't look so hot, I must admit)?

    Go for Kup. I love that old sh*tpiece. And THS-02 has a craptacular mode. It's trash, I tell you.

    I'd say a reissue. Either the bugs, Hot Rod, or Kup and crew. The have the cubes, Hot Rod is just awesome cause he's Hot Rod, and Kup is pretty cool and comes with Wheelie.

    I prefer reissues since I'm more of a G1 collector. THS is something I'd only buy if I was already caught up on reissues.

    Out of those choices I'd get hot rod, since he comes with his targetmaster pally, Firebolt :D 

    Although, Kup does too, however he comes with, dare I speak his name.....WHeelie! AHh.

    Ebay:
    Go for Hot Rod or Kup/Wheelie. They are Targetmasters, and Targetmasters are awsome IMO. Plus, they come with their guns, so they are also not TMs at the same time. I think I just confused my self.

    I know a few places have THS-02 on sale. JRS Toyworld you can get one shipped for about 45 or so.

    Kup and Wheelie will be hanging around for a while. If you can find the Insecticons as a good price, I'd grab them, yet THS-02 is a pretty cool figure. Not as cool as THS-01 yet a nice Prime.

    thx for the input guys. ive already got insecticons on hold/reserved seeing that theyre the least available, so its down to ths02 vs 'ceptor. grr.
