    I really wanted both, but with all of the other preorders demanding my money right now, i had to choose, so since i got the animated sons of cybertron, i decided to go with the 3-pack here.

    I'm not getting either. I considered looking into the three-pack so I'd have a spare Hot Rod when FansProject Protector comes out, but I don't like the deco they went with on that one (the painted windows and unpainted lower legs both look like crap). Plus I don't really need another Galvatron - not if they didn't bother to recolor all the ugly orange joints. Meanwhile, the crystal set does nothing for me - especially since it comes with one of the worst Optimus Prime molds ever made.

    Sons of Cybertron only. The 3-pack is actually a better deal (with better characters), but I'm a sucker for clear toys.

    Classics SOS, I have a hunch that Fansproject will release a crystal version of the Protector upgrade... And IF they make a crystal set, watch out the price for these set will sky rocket. And besides, the current henkei hot rodimus is price almost around $100 bucks each on ebay. Why not just buy this set.... Right?

    I do have a couple of Henkei Hot Rodimus, still in it's package ever since I ordered it from BBTS. I'm definitely opening one when the Protector upgrade comes this december.

    Neither. I have no interest in the SoC set, and I already have the Henkei and Classics versions of both Rodimus and Cyclonus.

    Crystal does nothing for me. I want a Classics Rodimus for non-stupid money though, and getting the repaint Cyclonus is a nice bonus.

    I preordered both. I own a version of all the molds but I really am getting into the clear figures thing and I want an extra Rodimus because I only have the classics version and im not a big fan of the paint.

    I am probably in the minority that I like the 3 pack Rods colors better than the classics one. Still think the henkei is best, but I can settle.

    Also, as someone mentioned, if they make protector armor in crystal that would be bitchin!

    I want both. Then again, I'm a Hot Rod/Rodimus Prime junky so that could have something to do with it. I mostly want the three pack however so I can use the Hot Rod with the Protector Armor and turn Nightstick into Firebolt.

    I'm going to get both. The Sons of Cybertron set, I have 2 on preorder.

    The 3 Pack, I will drive to Target/TRU/Walmart/wherever they're an exclusive to and pick them up. As these will be released in the US. I will get two of these too.

    I am a classics whore, so both for me. With all the stuff coming out, I did decide to cancel my clear animated set. Hopefully will be able to budget to pick that up, but in all honesty, I am kind of out of the animated game for the most part now.
