    Hi everyone. I need your help.

    I want to buy a new Alt today, but I can't decide between these 3 guys.

    Which one do you prefer?

    Most people might tell you Camshaft, as he's rare in the US.

    Meister is by far my favorite mold of those three.

    I'd say Meister. Great vehicle mode, great robot mode, high posability. Looks good and transforms great too.

    Also, you can get reprolabels and a missile launcher for him if you want the G1 look.

    Camshaft may be rare, but his mold isn't as good as Meister's. Same goes for Prime.

    Get Camshaft because he is rare, and you may never see it again. Then go after Prime.

    Meister, I'd say. Fantastic mould.

    All the best

    I'd say Prime, just because it's Optimus friggin' Prime.

    But then, I'm so crazy.

    If you plan on picking up all three I would say Camshaft, then Prime and Meister.

    If your only looking at one then Meister hands down as it's the best overall toy in that pack.

    Buy Camshaft, re-sell it on Ebay, and use the money to buy Prime AND Meister. :D

    I dont know why but I like Prime better than Meister. However, Prime can be a pain to transform, so you might not want to blow money on him if funds are limited cos he might frustrate you

    Camshaft is uber friggen rare, and IMO has a nice looking bot mode in person.

    Camshaft's rare? Damn, since I've stopped collecting Alts I'm totally in the dark about these things.:lol 

    Guess I shoulda picked up the 2 I saw a couple months back huh? Of course 1 had a broken mirror floating around the box.:redface2:

    Personally I would go with Prime... because he is Prime. Although you really cannot go wrong with any of these honestly.

    I wasn't aware Camshaft was all that rare either. I've seen him pop up from time to time. Is he becomming Swerve II?

    Meister, pretty damn close to the best mold in the line. Awesome sculpt, articulation, transformation, weapon...

    Prime's probably the worst (you'ld be much better off with Masterpiece convoy) and really the only thing cool about Camshaft is he's rare

    For fun: Meister.

    For appreciation in value: Camshaft - so long as you don't open it.


    Prime is unlikely to ever be of value, and it's one of weaker Alts - QC is a little worse than on most Alts, and paintwork is a little lacking.

    Camshaft's more rare, but Meister's the superior toy.

    My suggestion was tongue-in-cheek, in case some of you couldn't detect it.

    I dunno, I thought you were totally serious...plus, I think it makes sense!

    However, in case Taker doesn't want to go through that process, I'd say get either Prime or Meister. Prime is big, and he's...Prime... And like some have said already, Meister may be the best overall mold in the line (I think the RX-8 has the best bot mode of all).

    Meister is the best, but if I was stuck on a desert island with only 1 Alternator, it would have to be Prime.
