    Ok, i hate to say it, but im a fairly broke person. as much as id like to, i cant afford to buy all three molds and their repaints-so i have two simple questions:

    1) which color bet fits each mold?

    2) which mold of the three is the best?

    cause if i can only get one, i need to know which one is te bst of the best.

    Both the Silver and Vibrant Red Convoys look good; Blade silver Megatron; and Cliffjumper for A-03.

    The silver Megatron is my favourite of the Alternitys, so far.

    I'd say red Convoy, silver Megatron and Cliffjumper.

    I think the silver Convoy is too bland looking, and the red and blue help to break up the figure's colors nicely (plus it's the original color, of course).

    For Megatron: I think the blue one is meh..the silver one is great (and of course, more 'G1'). The black one is pretty awesome as well, though!

    For Bee/Cliffjumper: I think I like Cliffjumper's head more, and his paintjob is so much better!

    I don't own the Bee/Cliff one yet, so far I think my favorite is Convoy, although I must say Megatron is almost equally good. Can't really go wrong here.

    I do think that Cliffjumper will become my favorite in the end though. I know he has a bit of a belly problem, but for some reason he also feels incredibly fresh.

    It is a toss up between Bumblebee and Cliffjumper for me but I voted for Bumblebee since I like the character more. the head sculpt and color of Cliffjumper look great though. I like all of the Alternity line so far. You cannot go wrong with any of them.

    All are nice toys. I think Convoy is a slightly better mold compared to Megatron. Just slightly better. You can't go wrong with whichever colors either. I have blue Megatron and it looks really awesome. I chose silver for my Convoy, which is pretty cool too.

    This is the problem i had!

    in the end i saved and got red and black convoy, silver and black megs and im gonna get both bumblebee and cliffjumper.

    the colours cos they suit better imo and i got them both in black as im a sucker for the nemesis bit.

    im happier that i got them all because in the uk they are much harder to come by so had to save and snatch them up!
    Its all down to your preference really but i'd (and will) get all of them except silver convoy and blue megs.
    whatever you decide you wont be disappointed, they're all awesome!

    I have all 8.

    All are great.

    You can't go wrong with any of the Convoys, but I like silver the best.

    Megatron is good in all schemes, but I prefer blue and black to silver. The silver one is boring in comparison.

    Bumblebee and Cliffjumper is a hard choice, as they are separate characters. If you can only get one, go with the guy you like more.

    I own the red Convoy and silver Megatron, but the black versions look awesome as well.

    I'd go for Cliffjumper out of the 2 Suzuki molds tho.

    I wish I liked Cliff jumper's head more of the two. His paint is definitely nicer. This is one of those rare cases where i wish they had done a straight repaint.

    So far the one I ordered is BB (should be here monday). But when I saw that paint I was very tempted to switch my order. The only thing that stopped me was that I do like BB's head, and I'm luke warm on Cliffjumper's.

    Maybe I'll get both eventually (depending on how much I like the mold when I actually see it), but for now I've spent way to much on tformers lately.

    Black Megatron and Silver Convoy are the two I own. Black Megatron looks very imperious and fitting as a dark god-emperor type character. The black and red also carries the samurai motif he has going very well. Silver Convoy looks excellent too. The plain silver brings out the sheer amount of detail in the design and sets it apart from being "just another version of Convoy". I've seen the black Convoy up close, he is very nice too.

    You can't really lose on either of those two. All three versions of each look great. I've not got Bumblebee or Cliffjumper, though, nor do I plan to get them. I'm not partial to the design of the robot mode.

    I have all three Convoys and love all three...I actually prefer the silver over the red for Convoy/Prime, though the red looks good too. I throw in the black Convoy with the rest of my Black Convoy/Nemesis Prime toys, but if you only want one of the mold regardless, the black is also incredible.

    I only have the silver one for Megs. It's the mold that turned me on to Alternity and Alternators/Binaltech (I'd avoided hunting down figures from the line until I saw him), so that might help show you how much it impressed me then and how much it does now. The only annoying thing is the mold's top heavy so you can only get so much posability out of the legs. I don't have the other two, but the blue version does look nice to me.

    I'll know about Bumblebee/Cliffjumper once I get them in my hands from BBTS after I ship my stuff...from the pics I've seen online I like Cliffjumper more.

    I'm in the same boat. I'd love to pick these guys up, but can't really afford it right now. If I was to get them though.... I would get Red Convoy, Black convoy, Silver Megs, Bumblebee, and Cliffjumper. Maybe Black Megs just for fun if I had the extra cash.

    The blue one is meant to be the Megatron from the Binaltech continuity.

    However, Reprolabels can also make him very badass:

    In truth, it might be because Nissan makes that car in those colours and they requested it as a part of the licensing agreement.
