    I recently came into some "free money" on my paypal account (basically some visa gift cards from a supplier that I threw onto the account). I'm debating what to do with it now.

    I'm pretty much up to date with the main release stuff that is out right now. I'm not really looking for any of the encores, G1's, etc. Would you save it and wait for something like the movie releases? Or would you blow the money that you would not otherwise have on something on the rarer side (eg. Henkei Strafe, Figures of Botcon's past, etc.).

    What would you do?

    I, um, well honestly I just transfer into my checking account, heh, but that's probably not the answer you wanted.

    I'm actually kinda in the same position, been waiting on suppliers to get back w/ me (I don't know why ppl only answer email once a week) and am struggling with rather to ginish off my Seekers collection G1, WST, & Henkei or just hold on to it for a while longer... I really want them Seekers. I don't think I'm gonna have all the details ironed out with these guys for quite some time & I can get more money by then.

    I'd save it jourdo for something awesome. Chances are if nothing comes to mind right away, you probably are not dying to have it. You'll know when the time is right.

    I'd buy something awesome. SoC Daimos, Music Label Soundwave, something like that. Well, those are what's on my wish list anyway.

    Right now I'm debating on a Henkei Ghost Starscream Starscream, or going after Botcon Shattered Glass Prime (although I had no idea about the price jump on him since the last time I checked).

    Botcon Darkwing? Are you talking about the Universe repaint, or am I missing something?

    I'd go after Henkei Ghost Starscream if you already have Masterpiece Grimlock. Otherwise, I can't recommend Grimlock highly enough.
    I assume so. The pair look unbelievable together.

    You might be my good luck charm. Just as I read this message my MP Grimlock shows up at my door.

    Has Darkwing been released yet?
