    Hey all.

    Recently I got an offer for my Premium Megatron for a Classics Voyager Optimus Prime, and when I first heard the deal, I was escatic. But now... Looking at Premium Megatron... I have this weird feeling. I've pretty much fallen in love with it.

    So I need some help. Is Classics Prime really worth it?

    Are they open or MISB? Even if you consider them fair value it's going to cost you at least $6-8 more to ship the Megatron then the optimus. I'd do it for a Henkei Convoy but Classics Prime isn't that hard to get is he?

    You can only find him on Ebay for inflated prices. I'd said he's kinda tough to find.

    If you like the figure you have, then no. Trading would be a bad idea, probably leading to you spending more money picking up something you used to own. Classics Prime isn't going for silly money, so if you want one (and you do), go buy one.

    I wouldnt do it......Dont hear these guys, Classics Prime is not that cooler. He is an OK toy with arm kibble. Megatron, on the other hand while not perfect, is a very good rendition of his TFTM 07. I dont know, I just woudnt do it. I would keep it and would save to get an Henkei one instead, which is not running for a lot recently and has chrome grill.

    Go for it. I think you're definitely coming out on the better end of that deal.

    Are prices that much different over in the States? Only in the UK, Premium Megatron would still cost more than picking up a Classics Prime. And Henkei Convoy can, bizarrely, be had for less than the Classics one.

    Personally, in this situation, I'd hang onto what I've got and buy a Henkei Convoy at some point.

    classics voyager prime is an awesome figure.. a really cool update on G1 prime.. but.. i wouldnt trade in my movie megs for him simply coz.. well, the movie figure sucks, and technically it'd be a great deal (one awesome figure for one piece of crap figure).. but doesnt ur movie collection need a megatron? :D  i dunno, thats how i'd look at it.. but u definitely need a classics prime, its a great figure

    Might as well hold out for the Henkei Prime. I got mine for $30. It retails for $35-40 so yeah, don't do it. You're trading a $40 fig for a$20 fig.

    While many hate him, Premium leader Megatron is my favorite TF1 toy. So no I wouldn't trade him for a voyager classics Prime.

    Well it doesn't matter, because I just bought 40$ worth of Megatron I was hoping to get for a CLassics Prime, and out of nowhere he rejects the offer.
