    What's up everybody, I'm new around here although I've been checking this site out for about a year and half I just now decided it's time to start posting as my collecting is getting more serious. I just ordered Encore Sky Lynx and I have the funds for one more big purchase but I'm torn Between Megs and Omega Supreme. Any suggestions or which figure is the better bang for the my buck. Also wanted to say this site is freakin awesome and there are some of the most killer collections I've ever seen.

    I would pick up Megatron before he is sold out.

    You can get the Megatron in the TAKARA TFC packaging for $63 at Amazon. The bookshelf packaging have more accessories and a cool booklet.

    Are there any differences between the takara version and the encore besides the packaging?

    They are both the same. They are both made by Takara. The packaging for Transformers Collection(TFC) was released a few years back.

    According to tfwiki.net:

    "Transformers Collection (also abbreviated unofficially as T/F Collection or TFC), is one of Takara's series of Generation One reissues. Each toy is housed inside a "book-box"-style package that opens just like a large book, complete with a small booklet containing profiles of the reissued character (and a couple of random characters), episodes of the cartoon and a small portion of the Japanese catalog. "

    "The line went on indefinite hiatus while the 2007 movie was in production and appears to have ended, as the Transformers Encore line now has taken the reissue mantle, though not in book format."

    Thanks Waverider for the amazon listing. Too sweet of a deal to pass on. One step closer to buying my childhood back. Omega Supreme will be mine in the near future.
