    Been thinking about ordering two figures from the new united wave that will be released in January. I want to get the new rodimus, since I think the new colors are awesome, and all I have at the moment is BIS. The 2nd one is the g2 megatron, so he can be g2 laser optimus counterpart. They both should be around the same size. So, where are you guys getting your figures from? and who has the best deals? I have been eyeing HLJ, seems like they have the best price so far. If you no where I can get them cheaper, please let me know:D

    None I was gonna get Hotrod but I don't like the two shades of red which most of the United figures have. The shiny metal color doesn't go with the rest of the figure.

    Everything but Rodimus Convoy and the Energon/Cybertron repaints. I am now trying to justify buying Rodimus Convoy though. I told myself not to buy repaints or remolds of the same character or random un-justified repaints, then I realized this is supposed to represent Rodimus Convoy and not Hot Rodimus. Then I also realized I bought Soundwave and Soundblaster (I meant the reissues.) without thinking much of it, why am I hesistating on Rodimus Convoy? Now I try to convince myself that Rodimus Convoy is a different mold from Hot Rodimus in Generation 1, then I looked at their art-work and realized Rodimus Convoy is just an upsized Hot Rodimus in robot mode.

    I don't know... it's not that I can't afford it, it's just that I am still a student and not holding a job, it justs feels bad to buy it, but if I don't the price will definitely rise and I will have to pay a lot more if I decide I want it in the future...

    Argh...

    Probably none. Already have the Hasbro version for the Classics figures and not really that interested in the Energon/Cybertron moulds.

    After seeing more pics of rodimus, no way im purchasing him now. The colors came out nothing like the ones shown on the TT website. Most likely will only be getting the g2 megatron.

    Just Rodimus, via BBTS. A little tempted by Axalon but I doubt I'll feel like dropping $37 on him.

    I'm going to go ahead and get Archforce Megs, Axalon and Warpath/Wipeout (mainly for Wipeout, I already have RTS Windcharger so the United version will stay in the package.

    Windcharger & Wipeout
    Thunderwing
    Tank Megatron
    Rodimus
    Warpath

    Maybe the others but I just sold my Cheetor and Dinobot Henkei this week so I im on the fence about being a completist.

    G2 Megs for sure. Pre-ordered @ BBTS. I'm on the fence about replacing my gen. Thunderwing with the United one. I like the United colors better, but I dunno if it's really enough of an improvement to justify. The rest for this batch of United don't interest me at all.

    I have the windcharger set preordered on amiami, but im not touching the rest of that stuff.

    Especially the rodimus and megatron, neither are good molds and even if they were, they're so old that they should have been retired by now.

    Only Rodimus, if any of them. I don't mind the different color shades. And I like a lot of touches like the different canopy and the kind of show-accurate color on the wrists. And it doesn't hurt that I have never picked up any version of this mold before. The only part that really hasn't grown on me is the side flames.

    Axalon is kind of tempting, since I like the Sharkticon mold, but I can't justify spending the money on it right now.

    I'll be ordering none of them. Just not too different than the Hasbro versions. I would have gotten Rodimus but I already have the Henkei version.

    Windcharger and Wipeout from BBTS. I had the BW Megatron ordered, but was able to find the cybertron one for less than $10, so I'm good.
