    Skywarp. If price is not the issue, Black Convoy. The biggest bang for the bucks.

    Hey batcam,I am unsure what your financial story is but if you have the money I would
    go with MP Grimlock,he is by far the best MP there is,and even tho I have the US MP
    Prime and Skywarp and Starscream they pale in comparison to Grimlock,So I would
    suggest getting Grimmy.Oh and of all the figures I have (over 800) MP Grimlock is one of
    the few I actually play with,he is just too cool to not play with.Hope this helps.

    This is a big dilema mainly because your getting ripped off.

    Black convoy 140 Euro = $210.00
    Skywarp 80 Euro = $120.00
    Grimlock 150 Euro = $225.00

    There must be a better way. Where do you live?

    From these three I would pick Grimlock

    Grimlock, but not for that price. Convoy and Skywarp both have issues (die cast and kibble, respectively), whereas Grimlock is more or less perfect.

    Black Convoy is cool looking, but really isn't a major character (still an Autobot too). The others are more core characters.

    Any reason you are avoiding MP Prime (regular)? IMO he is the best by far, plut it's freakin' Prime as he should be.

    Something definatley wrong with those prices.

    I have all those MPs and my oppinion is thus:

    Prime if you do not have one, hes just the best prime ever period.

    Skywarp and grimmy are both nice, warp has had some QC issues (mine had one face all smudged to look like his silver paint was running off, looked terrible, thankfully he has two faces).

    Personally Id get the US version of warp if you can, I like my US version better than my Japanese version.

    I really like grimlock, but it really depends on which g1 character you like the most as to how much each of those figures will speak to you. They are all great.

    Ahh just noticed you are talking of the black convoy, hes nice too, but id get a normal MP prime before I got him.

    I think people are not gushing over the black convoy mold because he has been used to make mps forever...how many primes are there 6?..7? more? I forget.

    The mold is GREAT, but as far as something wozers as a black convoy..its ok but not awe inspiring. Get a real convoy first hands down my choice for MP supreme. I think thats why people are pointing you to the others, black convoy is just more a less a milked repaint of the mold.

    Man I'm glad I do not live in the netherlands, those prices are nuts. Is this a local shop or what its going to cost on ebay or something?

    I think we can get a prime with trailer for less than 200 american now...

    Heck there has GOT to be a cheaper way for you to get those guys.

    I jsut checked BBTS has masterpiece prime with his trailer for 199.00 US dollars. they say they ship worldwide...there is no way they are going to charge you 100 extra bucks to get him shipped there.

    Heck HLJ ships from japan all over the world for less than what you are quoting here...

    Get MP Grimlock and just get the Wal-Mart MP Skywarp as a cheaper alternative.

    Credit card yeah... I think BBTS may do paypal, or TF source does...

    If you are having to buy local then I guess you are stuck for it.

    Of those three molds you mentioned (and the price) skywarp is actually not all that bad a choice. hes not that much more expensive than he would cost here (except for the walmart one of course)

    If the price is not a selling point for you its really up to you as to which characters you like the most...Black convoy is really no one, skywarp is sorta second string, Grimmy is more front and center.

    All 3 molds are great, you can't really go wrong.

    Ah, any chance you can import from Japan or something?

    From those, MP Grim for sure.

    Grimlock gets my vote. It's small compared to the other MPs but it's also the most rock solid. The othes feel really fragile. BUT I have to say whoever you decide on you won't be diappointed. All the molds are fantastic.

    None. Get MP Prime, or at least the better Hasbro version- DVD Prime.

    Starscream's okay, but for not having any MP figures yet, you'll surely want a Prime.
