    i finally got some classics, after drooling over them for ages.

    i know have Prime, Bumblebee, Hot rod, Megs, and Starscream. i've budgeted this month to spend another £30, so who should i get? i'm drawn to magnus + skywarp, but i already have the molds...

    You should get whichever ones you're missing. Classics is the first line worth completing IMO, minus the minicons & LOCs of course.

    Well the line's over, so I'd hurry up and get them all before they're gone. Magnus/Skywarp is already on clearance here in the states.

    I'd say Grimlock and Astrotrain and Jetfire though.

    Give you only have £30, I'd recommend trying to get the more unique molds. This might mean you'll miss out on Magnus and Skywarp.

    Jetfire would be a worthy purchase. If you've got enough for 2 Deluxes, Grimlock and Mirage would be a terrific choice. Those would be my top priorities for the line.

    Though if you absolutely must have the 2-pack, they're as good as they look in the package and the pics. Skywarp is pure love, and his paintjob really puts Screamer to shame. Magnus is kinda plain, but he's solid, and his paint apps are cleaner and his joints tighter than the Optimus I have.

    Yes...get this set first...

    Then I would go for Grimlock, Jetfire and then Mirage...

    Grimlock is just awesome...even though his feet are the dino's head...

    Jetfire second because I hate his leg/feet setup...but he is a little more rare than Mirage around here...

    Jetfire and Grimlock :)  Because I like them and I can't find Magnus and Skywarp myself.

    Jetfire all the way man, imo he is the best classic figure.

    Go for Magnus( I refuse to call him Ultra)and Skywarp first since they'll be harder to get. Then go for Grimmy and Jetfire simply because they're so awesome!:thumb

    As you're in the UK, I'd say get the Magnus/Skywarp pack if you can find it. Jetfire should be around for a while, what with him being shipped in a case to himself.

    I'd have to say Grimlock......He's probably one of the best looking figures in the line. His robot mode is just awesome. He is articulated pretty well too.

    As a side note......I wasn't too pleased with Jetfire and Mirage. The molds just don't impress me at all.

    It should Jetfire is haawt. As sweet as Skywarp is for a repaint, if I had limited funds I would get the more original mold. Grimmy is cool if you can get a voyager and deluxe.

    MIRAGE.

    Or Jetfire. You'll have to show some love to Astrotrain too at some point.

    But yeah Mirage is like the best thing ever. Grimlock is... disappointing.

    I agree with Jetfire. He is probably my favorite out of this line.
