    Let say you had 50.00 to spend on TF's. Would you sink all of your money into one larger,leader class figure or split it up and get 3 or 4 deluxe figures?

    I'm trying to decide if I want a ROTF Prime or to split it up and get some classics/G1 characters.

    Leader class figures look soooo good w/ their subordinates. I just opened up my animated ultra magnus up w/ Sentinel Prime and Jazz on his left and right side and they look pimp. I'm tempted to break out Jetfire and Jetstorm too for elite guard goodness.

    3 Deluxes, 2 Scouts.

    Of course, in Australia, if I were lucky, I would be able to get 2 Deluxes, or a Deluxe, Scout and a Legends.

    If this were any other line, I'd say go with deluxes. But with RotF, get Leader Prime.

    The only Deluxe I bought was Sideswipe, and I have plans for bashing this guy.

    All depends on the character and the toy itself. Movie leader Prime is freakin' awesome and highly recommended. But there's lots of good deluxes out there too. It's up to you, but sometimes there's actually a leader class that's worth it, and I think ROTF Prime is one of those.

    When the choice is down to one big expensive figure or 4 deluxe figures I always pick the deluxe figures. If I buy the big figure I've only got one character for my money while the deluxe sized figures would give me 4 characters.

    Prime was the first ROtf figure I bought myself. Although, a day later I went back and bought Sideways and Breakaway. Prime is awesome though, I wish I hadn't even bought Breakaway. Out of Prime, Sideways, Sideswipe, Chromia, Starscream, and Breakaway...Breakaway is the worst figure.

    I say go ahead and take the Prime plung. He is freakin' sweet, and definately the most impressive out of the 6 I own imo. I would say deluxe Sideswipe, and Voyager Starscream are in a close tie for second at the moment.

    I got the same trouble lol.

    Should I get ROTF Prime or should I get Starscream & Ironhide or should I just get a couple of Deluxes? Anyone can help me decide?

    I would either get Optimus.

    Or get Sideswipe, Voyager Starscream, and maybe some scouts.

    I'm uber-impressed with Sideswipe and Voyager Starcream. They are among the best things ever.

    I normally go for the quantity. Especially TFs, since more expensive ones don't always mean more quality. Leader Prime looks really nice though, but I'd still go for deluxes. You can even mix some Scouts, they are good, too!

    I got alot of deluxes from the movie already so I say leader. But it all depends I guess. If I seen Mixmaster and Longhaul, i say those. I they don't have those and Leader Prime is there, I say Prime for sure. You rally can't go wrong with prime from what I have seen.

    If you'd have money later on maybe you could get the deluxe figures now to jump start your movie collection and then get the larger figures later. I don't know how it goes other places but here it seems like the larger figures just don't sell as quickly so you are more likely to miss a deluxe sized figure than a larger figure.

    Plus I'm sure most stores are going to stock a lot of those Prime figures this year for Christmas since the movie line will be Hasbro's Transformers line for this holiday season.

    a very good point. Leaders invariably get discounted. And Deluxes move much faster, so if you miss any now they may be harder to get later.

    Deluxes I would not want to miss are Sideswipe and the Twins Ice Cream truck.
