    Yeah, so I haven't bought a toy in well over a year, probably close to two years now. Priorities change and all that, you know. I kinda have an urge to pick one up, but only one. I'm not starting up collecting again, just want something new to mess around with and it needs to be awesome. I've narrowed it down to two- Human Alliance Bumblebee and Leader ROTF Optimus Prime. Walmart has Leader class toys right now for $35 so price really isn't a factor, the price difference between the two is negligible. So I leave it to you TFW. Pick my first toy in a long time. No pressure. :)

    hmm both toys are great imo... really hard to chose.. but you want to mess around with it.. so i think HA bb would be better. because most ppl here think optimus is hard to transform..

    my vote is bee...i like both soo much but i think bee will just be harder to find in the far future whereas prime will be stocked more fully, especially when xmas comes around...i think bee will get sold faster and stocked fewer..but thats just me..

    Flip a coin, because either way you'll be buying a fantastic toy ;) .

    My suggestion would be HA BB simply because he seems to be slowly fading away now for Sideswipe and the eventual Skids. Leader Prime, however, won't be going too terribly far too fast. With only three unique Leaders (and four when Starscream comes out), chances are good you'll be able to find him down the road rather easily.

    Bee edges out due to Optimus' difficult transformation.

    HA Bumblebee, definitely. An all-around great figure.

    RotF Leader Prime is an over-rated piece of garbage.

    Unless you have ROTF Leader Jetfire around, I'd get HA BB. Easily one of the best incarnation of BB.

    both are awesome but id go with leader prime for 2 reasons 1 he is awesome and 2 if Hasbro doesn't release Buster Prime in the US the price is going to sky rocket in a heart beat and unless i have missed something there has been nothing even hinting at a US release for Buster prime HA BB is awesome as well so honestly you can't go wrong

    I picked prime. I know these HA's are awesome, but they just aren't my cup of tea. Prime is just pure awesome sauce.

    I've heard good things from the HA subline, but I don't have any personally. So, I have to pick Prime... he just happens to be awesome as well.

    ROTF Prime. He is more screen accurate than the 2007 movie toy in both alt and robot modes. His transformation is a little trickier than the 2007 toy but not by much. He also combines with ROTF Jetfire (another cool Leader class toy).

    I'd be fearful of both because they such awesomness incarnate that it may drive you back into collecting :tongue: .

    Honestly, you can't wrong with either. I would say to go with what character you like more (though I voted for Prime because he is very close to a masterpiece style figure.)

    theyre both awesome figures, and ur gonna have to get them some time.. but i think leader prime is just a little ahead of HA bumblebee, so get that first.. or get whichever u like better first, thats wat i always do

    Leader prime is unrealistic in his complexity, accuracy and toy... ity. HA BB is impressive, but not Leader Prime impressive.
