    Hello fellow Transformers fans and collectors! Christmas is coming and everyone is getting each other presents! My family, even my mother, knows I like Transformers and she wants to know which figure or two I’d like since she’s the only one in my family that gets me a new one or few every birthday and Christmas but I’m having trouble deciding due to all the options out there of toys I heard are so good and characters that I like.

    Out of those, Sixshot and Greatshot. Although I'd try to swing a Grand Maximus if you can afford it.

    If you're going for MP styled figures, go for Fanstoys Galvatron and/or Takara Inferno.

    My vote is for Sixshot and Greatshot. You have some awesome choices in that list, but those two would be my first choice if I had the option.

    My vote is for Inferno. Mainly because you can never go wrong with a MP and I was never a fan of Sixshot. I got one and I kind of regretted it.

    Quite a bit of variance there. Me personally, if I didn't have it, I would go with MP Inferno, or any choice of the Fanstoys stuff. I have fallen behind on the FT stuff, but would love to add their Galvi and Cyclonus to my collection. The smaller scale stuff doesn't fit into my collection, Hexatron (while I have it) is a little too stylized for my liking. The Legends/Classics stuff is nice to round out a classics collection, I don't yet have Greatshot (though he is on the short list), and don't have the Legends version of Ultra Magnus, though I have the Hasbro retail version and Hasbro 5-pack version, and they suit me just fine.

    I would lean towards the MP range stuff, just because how well they are done, solid modern versions that (for the most part) feel like collectibles rather than toys, but also what fits with your current collecting habits and holes that need to be plugged.

    That is nice of your mother, but try to be nice back and not get the expensive ones if you can

    Believe me, I tried talking to her in telling her she doesn’t have to do this but she insisted on spending close to $400 since I did so much for her. No need to worry though, she’s a doctor at a hospital and makes a lot of money from it. She’s too pure for this world. She said I can get a Masterpiece or two or a Takara figure or more. She’s so insistent.

    That’s her limit on every Christmas all right! I’m just glad she didn’t plan to go to $500 or $1,000 thankfully. Otherwise thst’s way too much right there.
