    Fist off, I appreciate that some don't like these. I would appreciate that negative comments regarding that aspect of discussion be kept out of this thread. Thanks.

    Now, onto pressing matters: I have one of each color for both Prime and Megs on Pre-order. Megs: Blue/Silver, Prime Red/Silver. I'm keeping only one of each and the other will be purchased by my roomie. Since I'm making the purchase and he doesn't really care which one he gets I get the choice . With that said I'm having trouble choosing which ones to keep. I like them all! The following is my logic:

    If I keep the silver Prime it makes sense that I keep the the blue Megs. Together they're the odd colors but....

    I could also keep the silver Prime and keep the silver Megs for a kickass silver set or....

    I keep the Red Prime and Blue Megs. Opposing colors is cool from a bad guy/good guy stand point.

    And let's not even go into the discussion of the black versions... I have yet to order them... I might cave...

    I don't know what to do! HALP! :D

    Myself, I'm picking up the blue Megatron and the silver Prime. However, that's because I don't intend to use them as Megatron and Prime, but create my own characters out of them alongside my Classics/Universe figures.

    Good Poll. I never really collected Binaltech or Alternators unless I saw a deal. These look very sharp and debated which combination I too would get should I decide to get one of each. I really like the red Prime. The silver Prime looks like his shadow. I am split on the Megatron though. Right now I am leaning towards the silver for a more traditional Prime vs Megatron feel. Thats how I voted.

    I would definitely call myself a Prime purist, but the silver looks a heckuva lot better than the standard deco. My biggest problem with the red and blue is that the legs are two-toned, since alt mode has to be entirely red. The blue knees and red shins look very awkward to me. Also, the blue head looks nice, but stands out a lot more from the silver plate that it's mounted to. Besides that, it's just a matter of whether you like red or silver as the predominant color. Also, isn't there a black Prime coming out as well?

    Megatron also looks a lot better in silver. The differences between the two colors for his mold are not nearly as different as with Prime. I'd go with silver simply for the fact that the blue looks very plasticky in the photo.

    I'm not getting Megs, but as a fan of the GTR I will get both red and silver Convoy, red is for robot mode and silver is for alt mode.

    There's also a black Convoy apparently. There are three lines of thought: (1)Buy traditional colors because they're iconic and have always contrasted nicely. (2)Buy silver because they look super sleek and arguably more realistic. (3)Buy red and blue because silver(and even black) look monotonous and boring.

    I'm leaning towards (2) right now given the nature of the line. I think the car in red looks kinda lame and I can't abide by a blue Megatron for some reason.

    This is exactly my reasoning. Not sure how I'm gonna call them, though. GTR and Fairlady sounds wrong for some reason :lol  I have a real car based Convoy already and that's BT-22. I like him.

    No one's asking this question, but I'll be getting a colourful version of Micky TF, BTW.

    I have to say of both cars the silver seem the nicest to me...
    But I think the silver Megatron is much better than the blue one, while the silver Optimus, as cool as it is, isn't really an Optimus..

    So if you don't want two silver ones, I'd say pick the silver Megatron and the red/blue Optimus. :)

    Yeah, that's the problem I'm having right now... trying to name them. And all the cool non-transformer transformer names have been taken with everyone creating fan characters... :lol

    try basing it off the characterization.. and use a thesaurus and dictionary. You'll find you can come up with new names still yet.

    If I were to get these, and I am very to, it would be silver prime and blue megs. These have great color schemes.
