    Hey guys,

    I've bene back for quite a while now(just haven't posted anything)
    Anyway, I'm in a sticky situation here,

    I was going to buy the RID Rail Racer(Who I absolutely adore)
    But now, out of nowhere, a possibility to get myself an Optimal Optimus(Who I hold dearer to me then even Omega Prime) has popped up.

    I only have enough money to get one of them, but who should it be?
    Help is appreciated.

    Cheers!

    Rail Racer. Hands down. Optimal Optimus is meh. If you manage to get all three of the Rail Racers, you can combine them, which is totally awesome.

    I love combiners. I have both of what you are talking about. I would go for Rail Racer.

    My vote would also go to Rail Racer, as I've been wanting to get ahold of one for a while now.

    That's exactly what I thought, only, somehow, being a massive oprimus primal fan( and optiop being my favorite incarnation) I'm having doubts

    RailRacer definitely. That monkey will be around LONG after all the RailRacers are gone.

    Deth has a good point. Also I believe I can get railracer cheaper than optiop(god I love that abbreviation) Optiop is 55 euros, and so far only 1 person has bid on railracer and he bid 15 euros, so I think I'll manage.

    EDIT: I'm rude, sorry.

    Thanks for the help everyone!

    I really needed to hear that Batman, thank you.

    Anyway, I've emailed both sellers now, so I'll just wait and see which deal will work out better.

    Rail Racer! The only RiD toy I have to be honest, the only one I really liked, but that's my personal opinion

    To the TC:

    You realize you already in your mind, picked Op. Op right?

    NO ONE has suggested as of this post, for you to pick optimal optimus. Everyone's been saying to get rail racer. But you have been straying for optimal optimus. That clearly means, to me, that you want optimus.

    No-one can tell you what you should do, only give their own opinions. Mine would be to go for Optimal Optimus, but that's cos I love Beast Wars and couldn't care less about RiD. But as I say, that's just me...

    You could always try to get the Korean version of Rail Racer. I've seen it for pretty cheap and then get the other figure now.

    Rail Racer. Best Combiner released thus far. Op Op is cool but not as cool as Rail Racer. But of course get what you want, it's your collection not mine :thumb

    Get Railracer. He's really cool and a bit harder to find.

    Right. I have received word from the railracer salesman.
    I'm getting Rail racer for only 40 euros(OPOP was 55)
    seeing as I actually only have 40 to spend, this seems best to me.

    Also, as stated earlier. I have a feeling that Optimal optimus is still going to circulate the online market for another couple of years. Whereas Rail Racer is slowly vanishing.
    I believe I've made the right decision.

    Thanks to each and every one of you, you've all helped alot!
    Cheers!
