    Get Scalpel, you will not be dissapointed.

    IMO though.

    Definitely Scalpel. Not that Dirt Boss isn't a good toy, but Scalpel is far superior.

    I'd have to actually go with Dirt boss.

    Scalpel is neat and all, but as a TF I like DB more. I bought Scalpel more because I liked the on screen character.

    Dirt Boss. The lottery of trying to get a Scalpel that isn't broken out of the pack swings it for me. That and I used to drive fork lifts so it's personally cool. :)

    Scalpel has quality issues; Dirt Boss doesn't

    Scalpel, if only because he was actually in the movie.

    Dirtboss is the better toy, but Scalpel is the better display figure. So it depends on what you look for in a figure.

    This. They both have their good points. Neither should disappoint.

    Dirt Boss. Don't quite fancy non-humanoid TFs.

    Scalpel from what I've seen. I'm not one for scouts but that's one I really want to buy.

    Scapel is the better scout overall. If you want a quick and easy TFing toy, then Dirt Boss is your figure. However, Scapel is both actually in the movie AND he's got more points of articulation in the head area, compared to Dirt Boss' NO head articulation.

    Only place I ever seen Scalpel was in K-mart, where they charge an arm and a leg for Transformers.

    scalpel looks VERY nice, but I was dissapointed with playability, which is about 4 or 5 out of 10. His legs are just too damn fragile. I have him right here, and although, he has quite decent sculpting and articulation, he's just too fragile :(

    Where's the "every flippin' scout" option?

    Best set of toys in this line by far :) .
