    Starscream & BB
    Heinlad
    Megastorm

    I don't have Megastorm, but SS & BB are so awesome and Heinlad is a fun figure though his alarm clock isn't very reliable.

    Yeah, this. Megastorm second, because it's so huge and badass. I think he's taller than Trypticon!

    Heinland has balls, and a clock.
    Megastorm is freakin huge.
    Starscream and BB combine to form an awesome huge jet thing.

    I'd go with Starscream and BB.

    Aren't you referring to Gigastorm? Not Megastorm... or am I mistaken?

    No, I think the G2 Megatron/Megastorm mold is taller than Trypticon/Gigastorm. I have all four, just not on display together.

    It's true. Not a great deal in it, but Megatron G2 / Megastorm is taller. Taller than Metroplex, too.


    I'd personally recommend Starscream & BB first. BB is a triple changer - jet, robot, and a tank third mode. It's just the jet with the wings folded up and some other parts swapped around, but it looks cool. Starscream is a neat little jet whose design inspired the Energon version.

    You're getting two for the price of one with these guys and if you don't own any of the other releases, they are worth taking the plunge on.


    Heinrad is also cool. I personally like his Tanooki mode, he can also lean forwards into more of a racoon mode hiding his clock and other "features". The robot mode is very nice, big and bulky, but also very poseable. I personally love the flip down goggles, they're a nice touch.


    Megastorm is huge. A big tank, who turns into a suitably impressive robot with a nice big gun on his shoulder. My only gripe is he only has shoulder articulation, no leg movement to speak of (nothing meaningful anyway) although he does have good elbows. But the lack of articulation puts this one at the bottom of the list.


    They're all very good choices, though, so whichever you pick up you should be happy with.

    Out of the three I've only owned the Megastorm mold. And I gotta say I do miss it.

    Starscream and BB, Megastorm, Heinlad. All three are good, so you can't go wrong.

    Thanks!

    Thanks for all of the helpful input. It sounds like overall Starscream and BB are the best choice and will probably be my next purchase.

    Thanks again!!
