    i need help on what to spend it on. i am about to get about 100 bucks and i am going to buy completely transformers that i have always wanted....here are a few i been thinking about...

    MP Megatron: i have wanted one since it was announced and i can afford one for about 100 on ebay (right now the current rate).

    BW buzzsaw: the one transformer i wished i still had, i had him and rattrap growing up and i really miss the buggar (rattrap too but that thing is too darn expensive)

    Assorted g1 reissues: the US tru ones, just get as many as i can afford, like dirge (who i gawked at in the panel flap of ricochet's box) or the three cars prowl,bluestreak (silversterak) and smokescreen (make suggestions for these).

    assorted G1 figs: like blaster and stuff, make suggestions

    animated blitzwing: i REALLY want one but i can wait

    the remaining classics: if i can afford, i need jetfire, ultra magnus/skywarp two pack and devastator (get as many as i can and no convention exclusives right now)

    MP starscream: i wanted one for my birthday this last december but couldn't find one

    Reissue Soundwave:also wanted one for the birthday before the mp starscream Bday, but since TRU sucks and didn't release it on time i never got one and instead bought a bunch of classics

    and finally G1 Prime and/or megs: now this would be a sure thing BUT i will be getting the g1 prime reissue for christmas so i can hold out and g1 megs can be put on hold if i get the masterpiece

    and replacement and/or trailer for mp prime:mine's legs joints broke at the knee area and he can stand but legs must stay connected

    also make more suggestions for cool figs, thanks for any help

    main reason for this: i rarely get money, much less this amount, so i want to get something that is 100% worth it and will last me a long time (it WILL get played with a lot lol)

    for reissues get prowl,red alert,silverstreak and inferno.You should be able to get all 4 for under or around 100(i know i did):D 

    encore prime,megs,soundwave or starscream are all great choices also

    Just solely based on my personal preference I'd go for MP Megatron or the Classics.

    Animated Blitzwing. If you look, they can be had for $60-70, giving more money for other things.

    Get Classics Jetfire. Greatest toy for the price in your entire post. And get Reissue Soundwave and BW Buzzsaw with the remaining money.

    Why? It won't be anywhere near that much in a couple of months. $100 purchase really should be to get stuff that isn't going to be ridiculously accessible within the coming year.

    I agree with fosterlager. Classics Jetfire is without a doubt one of the cooler figures, and I absolutely adore my reissue Soundwave (Soundblaster, as I know him.) Tack on BW Buzzsaw and you've got a good haul.

    Jetfire, Soundwave and Buzzsaw should definitely be attainable for $100, and depending on what you spend, you might end up with change left over.

    Well it all depends I know you can get MP Megatron for 100 bucks. Or possibly alot of loose figures. As far as the tru reissues you can probally get a few that are opened, for MISB you might only pick up two on ebay at least. Unless you luck out.

    Go for figues you both love as moulds and characters first. It's win-win on both, even if it's not as rare a figure. If it's something like TFA Blitzwing wait for the general release, since you said you could anyway. Just set $10 aside for him and go crazy with the rest of your money.
    Get either MP Megs to go with your MP Op or divide your money between Buzzsaw and a reissue or Classic you like best. For Reissue go for Dirge (since you seem to like him) or Soundwave (awesome playability). For Classics got for Jetfire unless you are a huge Skywarp fan. Honestly, G1 Megatron is a crappy figure, and not worth your money, period (and any Starscream toys you have will be all the happier for it ;-) ).
