    If you had neither figure and only money enough for one this fall, which would you get and why?

    Which looks better to pose, which is the better/more fun toy, which looks better in a collection.

    Thanks

    Rodimus isn't a toy. He's more of a 'pose him and leave him there' (For me anyway).

    Unicron on the other hand is fun, a better toy and he looks totally bad-a** in any pose.

    Amazon Unicron looks pretty crappy. Save up for the Takara version and get Roddy now.

    The Takara one looks to be going for prices in the $300 range. I'm just not there yet with what I'm willing to pay for a TF, and the only one that's making me debate getting into the $200 range is MP-10 purely on sentimental attachment to the figure. G1 OP was my _first_.

    Depends really. What do you collect? MP or Classics or both? If you collect MP, do you care about seasons? I use to collect only season 1 MPs.

    If you collect classics, Unicron is a must have.

    Rodimus is really freaking sweet and is one of my favorite MP figures at this point. I had a good deal of fun with him personally. So if you collect MP figures, you will like him as well.

    For me, I would have done the Unicron first, as Rodimus has no place on my season 1 MP Autobot Shelf. But that is just me and the way I collect. Luckily I had Unicron so I got Rodimus as well.

    So it is your call, hopefully what I posted helps make the decision.

    Well, i used to only collect Bayverse figs - but recently classics are my new obsession.

    And I just grabbed my very first MP (US Skywarp) so MP also interest me.

    All in all, I really want both but my wife is at the breaking point right now I gotta start picking and choosing which to get first. I'm kinda leaning Unicron as I just got Kup and I have a Wreckgar coming with Scourge in my sights, which i think will make a neat 86 movie scene.

    It's just that if Roddy is as sweet as he looks from a tranformation and engineering perspective (I really appreciate that stuff) then I would hate to miss out on him.

    That group shot of the Season 3 "bad guys" is awesome! I didn't think the 3rd party Quintessons would look very good but they do in your pic! One thing though: you need Henkei Galvatron instead because the Hasbro version's colors are just plain wrong (especially next to your BiS Cyclonus and Scourge).

    I won't get the Amazon Unicron since I already have the Takara one, but he's a fantastic figure. MP Rodimus looks cool and I would like to get it, but Unicron is just a fun figure to mess around with and pose.

    Rodimus. Better toy, hated my 2010 Unicron, and sold it.

    I might have to look for him. I was thinking of reviewing my classics line and doing replacements to more accurate coloring. Not sure I want to spend more money on a Galvatron mold!

    As for the Quints, they are kick ass. They don't do much but they look good doing nothing.

    While i disagree with your opinion i respect your right to have and share it. :D  Really sorry you do not like Roddy. I think its a great figure and worthy of any collection.

    Definitely Unicron.

    I have Unicron from when it first came out for Armada in like 2002 and it's brought me nothing but joy. Whereas as Masterpiece Rodimus has brought me nothing but woe.... at least the Japanese one. Maybe they've improved the US one? I dunno.

    But I'd definitely go with Unicron.

    get roddy first you will find many unicrons on ebay and other sites for well under a 100 rodimus on the other hand will cost you more in the long run.

    on the other hand if you like big bots unicron is second in height only to fort max.

    This poll was looking like a cakewalk for Uni, but Roddy is coming from behind.

    I hand my first hands on with a beat up Armada Uni just this evening. Not really sure what to think - huge but basic maybe?

    Unicron. Only Masterpiece figure I've EVER been interested in was Grimlock, and I don't even want him that much.
