    Argos will have Transformers Cybertron on Saturday. I have £65 I had saved up specifically for TF:C Prime, but after getting my first alt swindle, i have been tempted away from my goal. I have also been tempted away by the Robotmasters Convoy, so i turn to you for advice. :huh
    Here were the ones i was thinking of getting:

    TF:C Optimus and a deluxe or two
    Alternators Windcharger and Skids
    Robot Master Convoy and beast Convoy+pal
    Micromasters
    TF:C Ultra and 3 or more deluxes
    I was wondering what is the best buy, like is it worth getting the Alternators rather than the Cybertrons, or what? I've read the reviews and they did not help, and i have no one outside the internet to talk about it to. HELP!!!!!! :thumbdown

    Well I can tell you Prime is definitely worth getting. The alts are good too of course, the other Cybertron stuff depends more on which figures.

    First of all, if your Argos is in a less densely
    populated area, there's a chance they won't have all the TF's you're looking for on sat.

    I'm not sure where you planned to get it, but Alternators Skids won't be in any UK toy shop any time soon. If ever.

    Prime is a pretty good toy. You're best of spending your cash on the larger items i guess. So, that would be Prime and Windcharger....

    which would be £60.00

    or the two ultras and a deluxe.

    which is £60.00 as well.


    Personally, however i think Scourge is not a great toy. Especially not for £25.00.......

    So maybe 3 deluxes and Jetfire which would come to £55.00 and leave you cash over.

    I'd reccomend getting Cybertron Prime.

    He's only my second Prime toy ever (I only had a Powermaster Prime before), so I can't speak from personal experience, but pretty much everyone's said that C. Prime is the best mainline Prime toy ever. By mainline, of course, I do not include MP/20th Prime. ;)

    We have this same problem when it comes to hiring new people at our work. Our solution: flip a coin, and hope for the best.

    Actually, I would go with Cybertron Prime and Alt. Windcharger. They are older figures (by toy store standards) and may be harder to find in a few weeks.

    Dude,

    At least get Cyb Prime. He tops Energon, Armada, and Powermaster Prime easily, IMO. Vector Prime isn't bad either. Be the Prime....

    Oh, the option is C. Prime + Alt. Windcharger?

    Definately do that. Windcharger isn't exactly the most popular of alts, but in my opinion, he's definately a very good one. Crappy knee articulation and lame gun though.

    C. Prime may not be as great as most alts you can get your hands on, but he's still a very cool toy.

    I didn't finish my last post properly.......

    disclaimer: the following is down to personal opinion.

    You'll *probably* like Prime.

    Use the rest of the money to either buy Jetfire or Skids.

    Windcharger is a decent toy... but the lack of barrel hurts it badly. Skids offers more fun for your money

    Plus you're more like to see Windcharger again... and Jetfire too.

    So, my personal choice would be Prime and Skids.

    IIRC , the Transformers on Amazon UK are being sold thru Toyzandgames in Norwich. I think they're pretty reliable.
