    Alt. Sunstreaker and 300?

    Going to have a spare 40 bucks for tomorrow and need to know what to get....or just spend half and save the rest?

    And depending on stock what I get may change (like if I can find 08 BB, or Longarm, or Dropkick).

    I really want an alternator though...as I have none of that line and have wanted to get into it. I technically have a copy of 300..just not from retail >_>

    SS & Skidz.

    300 was good, but not worth buying IMO. Jetfire's nice, but doesn't compare to an Alternator.

    Sunstreaker is a Transformer I still regret not getting, Skidz however I can guarantee you won't be disappointed!

    Yeah, that's pretty much what my thinking was (but I did/do want opinions, makes thinking less hard). I passed on Jetfire before when I was hunting movie toys and did regret passing...but I've wanted to get into alternators for a long while, I love that they have cool, complex transformations.

    I just kinda threw 300 on the list because I haven't bought any DVDs in a while.

    Out of the choices you listed, I'd definitely go for Sunstreaker & Skids.

    That's two for SS and Skids.

    I'd say one more recommendation for that'd decide it (a nice even 3).

    SS and Skids, if they don't have one of those get Jetfire, great toy!

    Skids and Jetfire. The Viper is one of the weaker Alternators, and Jetfire is a must-have.

    300 will be on the shelves for all eternity
    Skids is the most shelf-warmer of all the Alts

    Get Sunstreaker and Jetfire, because those two will only be there a finite time

    I'd get sunstreaker and jetfire now, and then skids when you can. those alternators are both really cool, and sunstreaker's the best of the vipers. skids, while not being a popular character, at least has a unique mold.

    That's pretty sound logic actually... However, You do need to purchase a Skids at some point, the Vehicle's kinda lame, but the bot mode is by far one of the best.

    I think I will go with Sunstreaker and Jetfire (again assuming that combo is available, heh)..since I regretted passing on Jetfire last time and didn't think I'd be seeing it at retail at all again.

    Thanks for the input.

    Skids and Jetfire. The Viper and SRT-10 are the two worst Alts IMO.

    Whatever you do, you HAVE to get Skids.

    Jetfire is meh. Sunstreaker looked so unimpressive I passed on him. I dunno. Skids and 300 or Skids and Jetfire or Skids and Sunstreaker, but make sure to get Skids.

    If you HAVE to have an Alternator get Skids. The Viper's alt mose is better, but Skids is way better overall.

    sunstreaker and jetfire... you never know when you'll find these guys again.

    Get skids the next time you have the money because there's ample bunches of him.

    Just check Frys

    Yeah, I've actually seen Skids around a bit, which is one reason I'm a bit more for Sunstreaker...also comes down to transformation, who has the better transformation?
