    What would you guys recommend?

    And I'm not getting anything with Alternity, Binaltech, or Titanium in the name of the line/toy.

    I suggest you save up for MP Grimlock if you don't have that yet.

    Or maybe grab an Encore 09 Omega Supreme. They can still be found for awesome low prices right now.

    Depends what you've already got.

    The movie line is full of winners, and you could snag a pretty good haul for $100. Optimus tops the list, but that'll leave you enough for a few deluxes or a Voyager or two. What you like from that line is definitely personal preference.

    You might wanna hold onto it until MP Skywarp hits the shelves, or save a little more and snag MP Grimlock.

    On the 1 side? Metroplex, Omega Supreme... there's a lot of stuff G1 did that we'll probably never see again, and citybots and basebots are the top of the list.

    the Encore line is great. Pick up a soundwave if you don't have one.

    I'm sure if they had a TARDIS crossover TF, you would be on that like a hungry kid with cake.

    Right now, I am wishing I could do the preorder for the G3 FansProject trailer. Also on my list:
    ROTF Leader Jetfire
    City Commander
    About 50 G1 figures

    You know....the usual.

    I'd love a trip in a real TARDIS myself just to go back and buy up G1 stuff from my favorite childhood toy stores that no longer exist.

    No Binaltech or Alternity leaves me scratching my head. Something Masterpiece, I suppose?

    About the Alternity/Binaltech thing. I'm not a huge fan of die-cast, and I got to mess around with Alternity Prime at TFCon, and was unimpressed.

    As to what I like, I'm a huge Classics fan, but I have most of them. Some of the stuff I'm looking at is Buster Prime and the G3 FP Trailer, however, I'm not sure if Buster Prime will eventually see a US release, and I've seen negative reviews about the G3 Trailer.

    If that were the case, I wouldn't even need to make this thread. :lol

    Buy the ones you like. You are the one that's going to play with them, or display. They have to be the ones you like. I grew up in the 80's so I have a preferance for G1 toys, but that's me.
