    So I have started collecting some of the larger transformers recently. Superion and bruticus maximus with the fans project add ons, rodimus with fans project add on. Now I am debating between the takara tomy unicron or trying to find a classics ultra magnus and the city commander add on.

    What would you go after?

    Personally, I'd go with Unicron, simply because the Takara 2010 version looks absolutely epic and I've never cared for the look of City Commander.

    It's really up to your personal tastes though. Which figure looks the best to you and makes you think you'd enjoy it more?

    I'd say Unicron. Get it now while you still can.

    City Commander is awesome but that one's price (and that of the Ultra Magnus figure itself) has already gone up on the aftermarket anyway.

    So I'd say get Unicron now he's not super-rare or expensive to find, and then get City Commander later. :)

    Out of the choices i say unicron but considering the cost of Magnus and the city commander set i say go with the Japanese release of MP Rodimus Prime since that figure will be epic!

    UNICRON! Get it while its still at retail, otherwise you'll have to deal with the next markup.

    Its already jumped from 134 to 150, imagine what the next markup will be:eek:

    I'd say get the city commander. Though, I personally am a big fan of ultra magnus the beauty of the sculpt is worth it. 2010 Unicron definetly looks fabulous in itself, but if you were happy with how the armada or universe 2.0 versions looked, you may be able to get a cheaper version of one of those and not feel as bad spending more on City commander.

    I'd go also with City Commander. That came out first and is now fetching a premium. Before it gets any higher grab that now.

    You can always pick up Unicron later as there at least plenty more availability.

    The City Commander is already pretty hard to get as well as UM. I'd say go for those two while you can get them. They'll probably be way more expensive than Unicron though. FP stuff goes up in price REALLY fast (I.E. Shadow Commander).

    Go for Unicron, otherwise you will end up paying $250 for a $150 figure. Plus he really is amazing and extremely screen accurate, a true must have.

    Can you still find CC for what Unicron is currently going for?

    I would suggest 2010 Unicron,seeing as a City Commander and Magnus are going for atleast $200,I have even seen $225 some places.Whereas Unicron is about $50 cheaper.Also IMHO but that CC set is a waste of money at $100+ for a knockoff.
