    Here in Canada TRU is having all deluxe figures 2 for $20, (it's a good deal considering we pay $16 for one).

    However the only figure I want is Animated Rodimus and thus am left with these choices as a second:

    HFTD Sidearm Sideswipe
    HFTD Hailstorm
    HFTD Tuner Skids
    HFTD Elita-1
    HFTD Sea attack Ravage
    HFTD Jetblade
    Animated Ironhide

    So who's the best of the bunch?

    Of those you listed I would pick between HFTD Hailstorm and Animated Ironhide. And if you don't have a Sideswipe then add him into that pair.

    I would say go for Sidearm Sideswipe, but if you already have the original then go for either Animated Rodimus or Hailstorm.

    If you collect Animated then definately go with Animated Ironhide. If you like variety I would say Sideswipe.

    The only Animated figures I have are wingblade prime and leader megatron. I am only picking up animated Rodimus because I am a hot rod fan.

    I'd say Animated Ironhide, but I'm biased.

    Sidearm Sideswipe seems to be really cool, if you don't mind the flames.

    Out of the choices I'd say Hailstorm since he's an oddly fun figure.

    As much as i like Sidearm Sideswipe... that deco is a bit of a mess, it may get repainted yet, and Animated Ironhide is going to be a bit more difficult to get in the long run.

    I used the same deal to get Animated Ironhide and Generations Darkmount. If you're already getting Roddy go with Ironhide because this is the swan song of Animated and the really delivered. Animated Ironhide is really fun.

    You're slowly convincing me out of sidearm sideswipe and getting Animated Ironhide...
