    So, I'm having a bit of a hard time deciding which car Vehicon to get. As a stand-alone figure, I seem to be one of the few people who prefers the FE Vehicon, both because it's larger and because I like the way it looks better. However, the PRID Vehicon's not bad, and if the Jet Vehicon (which I really like) ever gets released here (or if I break down and get the Japanese one), it'll look way better with the PRID Vehicon than with the FE one. Of course, I'm not thinking it's terribly likely that I'll ever see a PRID Vehicon in stores, so that would make my decision easier, but could I have some help here?

    vehicle mode = FE

    playability = RID

    Robot mode = FE if you dont mind kibble / RID if you hate kibble

    I used to think the FE looked terrible in pictures/videos but it really does look great in hand and the detail on it (and its transformation) is incredible. Just based on details and transformation alone, it really does belong in the FE line. And really, the kibble is not as bad in person as the online media make it look.

    However, I'd still give the RID version the edge because of how clever (yet simple) the transformation is. I'm also a big fan of minimizing kibble and the RID mold is SUPER clean (compared to the FE). Since the case assortments are going to get better, I say buy both. For display purposes, you can't really go wrong with having these guys side by side :D

    PRiD Vehicon is what I recommend, since it's extremely show accurate and has a clever transformation, don't own the FE Vehicon so don't know about that one mate.

    Well, I suppose what I might to is get both, and keep the PRID Vehicon the way it is and use the FE Vehicon for a Batmobile custom I had been thinking of doing.

    Not a good question.
    Mainline Vehicon is better then FE in literally every way.

    If you are buying FE remember the Hasbro one is black, not a dark purple like the Takara one.

    Not exactly. Alt mode, size, plastic quality, complex transformation, sturdiness go to FE. Accuracy, ease of transformation, playability/poseability go to RiD.

    I chose both. RiD is cool, don't get me wrong, but the cheap plastic quality is something I take issue with on him (he just feels kinda flimsy, much like Knockout and Soundwave), along with overly loose ball joints (nothing a little glue didn't fix but still). The FE feels much more substantial in hand (with a nice weight to him), with better plastic quality.

    The kibble isn't that horrible on him either (stories of it being the worst thing ever are greatly exaggerated, often by those folks who never even held or played with the FE in person) but yeah, his articulation isn't as great as the RiD version. They both have their good points and their bad points, is what I'm getting at.

    I keep my two FEs holding FE Cliffjumper prisoner, and my lone RiD is off with the rest of the Cons in an action pose. (Two AM Jeticons will be joining them shortly.)

    ^ Yes on FE, solid figure. Feels like Gen Drift, big and strong.

    I'm really looking forward to getting the FE Vehicon. I'm a little sad that the Hasbro version doesn't have the same coloration as the Takara version (I love that dark purple), but I like that the FE figure's head isn't hunched down like the RID one, and I like that the chest window doesn't have silver paint behind it.

    I know the RID of one is more show acccurate, but I really like the look of the FE more.

    regardless, I'll own one of every vehicon mold just for the hell of it.

    RID all the way. It's an overall much better looking toy.

    The TFP Vehicon is much better than the FE figure IMO.
