    Was thinking to buy Henkei TC and SW, but I don't know.

    So, uh, help I guess.

    What are you looking to get? Have you got the City Commander armour?

    If you're looking to complete a henkei\classics line-up, get Onslaught\Powerglide\Silverbolt if you don't have them already.

    If you're into animated figures, I'd get Magnus, either version of Bumblebee and leader Bulkhead.

    Masterpiece Thundercracker?

    Are those the only ones you are considering? What are you into collection wise? This post leaves a lot of unanswered questions to even attempt to give you suggestions. More information would be helpful.

    Not looking for CC. Already have Onslaught and Silverbolt, Powerglide looks like he sucks.

    Already have a plan for Dirge and Thrust, shouldv'e mentioned that.

    Information: Interested in Classics, Henkei, Universe, RiD, BW, and Armada

    Personally, this is what I would do if I had the extra cash, though as it is I'll be waiting for Hasbro's version of him.

    Edit: If not that, than maybe some RID stuff. Though it depends on what you already have. If you don't have them I'd try to get a Prime and a Megs. Ruination and Scourge make great additions too, along with pretty much every other figure from the line, lol.

    Also, the way things are now, there's a good chance I'd probably save it and just spend it on smaller TF's as they are released (combination of Universe, Animated, and eventually RotF toys).

    Yeah, I'll wait for the eventual Hasbro releases of the MP's.

    I think Masterpiece Skywarp was on sale (though not by much, but still) at TFsource, so with a little extra cash you could go with Masterpiece Skywarp and Thundercracker.

    Or Masterpiece Ultra Magnus and Animated Leader Ultra Magnus (trust me, I wasn't into the Animated figures at first but gave them a chance and now think they're slick).

    Or Masterpiece Grimlock and Henkei Classics Ironhide and Ratchet.

    Or Henkei Classics Ironhide, Ratchet, Inferno, and then save the rest for the Smokescreen that's forthcoming plus anything else that can be squeezed in.

    Yeah, I got a loose G1 Shockwave with instructions for $150 off eBay (a bit much, but I've rationalized to myself I'll only pay over $100 for original G1s, Masterpieces, and the occasional super-rare figure) so you could find a decent Shockwave and still nab something else perhaps.

    It sound’s like you’re most interested in Universe/Classics, so I’d say just load up on whatever you don’t have. Pre-order some upcoming figures, and then just find something from an older line on eBay to spend whatever’s left.

    Henkei Thundercracker is pretty low quality for how much he’ll cost you. I’d only get him if you are seriously wanting to just complete your Classics Seekers.

    I shouldn't, but it would make sense for Hasbro to release Grimlock, maybe not TC though.

    get MP thundercracker or skywarp (dunno about the prices in the US though, u can get both MPs over here for 170)... or henkei thundercracker AND skywarp :D  and unless u already HAVE the CC armor, i suggest u think about that too.. other than that... ur not into encore figures? or u could use that to preorder MP-08?
    and btw, powerglide does NOT suck..lol...he's a really cool update on the G1 figure.. much better than the henkei, even though its less accurate...

    Hmmm... I keep hearing MP SW and TC. I may take one of those into consideration.

    Henkei versions too. Hmm... this'll be tough.

    You should be able to get MP Skywarp & MP Thundercracker for slightly more than that from TF Source.
