    Despite the vintage nature and "collectableism" of the G2s, I say Classics hands-down.

    IMO:

    Classics Prime and G2 Laser Prime have a roughly equal 'coolness' level in terms of the main figure. Classics has a more traditional/better color scheme, while Laser Prime is pretty much the toy gimmick king, with the lights and trailer 'n' all.

    Classics Megs is overall a nicer toy, G2 Megs is a nice-looking semi-brick. I do like the head/face sculpt on G2 Megs more than Classics though.

    I like laser prime more than classics prime. classics prime's head doesnt look like the original optimus prime, while the laser prime head does. laser prime is such a bad-ass figure too. I prefer the original release (I think the chrome looks bad) though.

    G2 megatron is my favorite version of Megatron. he's big, he's well-armed, he turns into a tank so no one has to aim him, and his head sculpt is perfect.

    Laser Prime with a better paint scheme will look better, but with this, the winner are both classics

    I'm a fan of the G2 figures... even though I don't own either of them... The closest to the Prime figure that I have is RID Scourge, and he's full of win! As for the G2 Brick of Megatron, I've been a fan of the mold since I first saw it, and can't wait until I finally pick up any of the G2 Megatron tank molds... (G2 Megs, G2 Hero Megs, RID Bludgeon, Reverse Convoy, etc)

    I do quite enjoy the Classics line though, don't get me wrong, they're great, but I think the 2 G2 molds are excellent as well!

    I'm biased towards more articulate figures, so I think Classics Megs is better than G2. But as for Prime, both of them are pretty articulate. However, I'd say get the RiD version of G2 Prime as an evil Prime and keep Classics as the good one

    I think Im stuck between Classics Prime and Laser Prime.
    The classics are hard to beat, but I love the old style transformation to laser Prime. Plus I love tht particular mold thank to RiD Scourge.

    I just like simplicity when it comes to Primes transformation, but that's just me I guess

    I'm a big fan of the G2 versions. Classics are great, but I love the gimmick with Laser Prime and (as Valkysas said) the G2 Megatron's head is the best one ever released. I'm also digging the neon on Meg's! Early 90's FTW!!! :)

    Good call on that one...

    I think both toys of each character are about equal. For Megatron, I lean more towards G2 Megs.

    G2. The gimmicks rule. Prime has three different guns and a sword, and all of them do stuff. Megatron has an autofire turret and he SHOUTS stuff at you!

    Classics, but as others have said, G2 Prime with a better paint job would be better.

    G2 Megatron has a Gobots like 'M' on his belly. Lol.

    I like G2 Prime's robot modes equal, but I love G2's vehicle mode, so he wins.

    Classics Megs hands down though.
