    Alternity Convoy. He's too good to be true.

    I said superion and bruticus. I like combiners and the play value is there. I like the sculpts of each piece in the set. its the only one of the vote options I plan on picking up.

    Alternity is a great line. But I'm not into importing unless I can get discounts/clearance prices.
    (which I had managed to find for my superlink bruticus maxims years ago)

    i say convy,
    superion will be out soon enough,
    rumble and frenzy just don't do much for me
    and im happy with my classics rodimus too much to fork out that cash for the henkei one
    and i love my silver alternity, i like making weopons that fit him :)

    Rodi alone is a good figure. His upgrade will make him awesome.

    the superion set will be extremely limited and therefore harder to obtain, so i would go with a rodimus to save yourself the dissapointment of buying a superion for nothing unless you get lucky

    Ooh... This one's a toughy... The only rational thing to do here is flip a coin until the one you truely want wins! ...Okay, that probably won't get anyone anywhere so forget that.

    Anywho, I think I'd pick either Henkei/Classics Rodimus, or the "ROTF"/Superion set. I'm imagining that Roddy will end up going up in price after the FP set releases. Same for Superion, and as it is, Superion's gonna end up being an exclusive figure (I'm assuming) so he'll probably end up being a difficult find pretty quickly.

    Alternity Convoy on the other hand looks like a beautiful toy, but he may be easier to come across in the future. Plus there's always the chance he might go on sale somewhere down the line. (At least I'm thinking)

    Get Hot Rod. And get the classics version. It's cheaper everywhere i've seen it (though I haven't been looking) and it rocks! It's a great version of a great character, and if you're gonna upgrade he's the way to go.The first Hot Rod to Rodimus convertion ever! Total win!

    Hot Rod. Awesome figure and will probably be the hardest to get pretty soon. I never have problems finding Target or ToysRUs exclusives anyway.

    Superion with the FP addon. The Classics line is in desperate need of some combiners and with the FP addon Superion really fills the gap!

    I got to see Alternity Convoy...

    He sucks. Hard. I wouldn't pay $10 for him, let alone import prices. I would get the F/R headphones.

    Classics Rodimus + FP Upgrade kit= Epic Win!!!

    I'm going to attempt to get another Classics Rodimus, and then try and save up for the upgrade kit. I'm hoping the red color they use isn't too far off of the Classics Rodimus figure. I have a bad feeling they'll go for something closer to the Henkei version. Not a huge difference, but a big enough difference as far as I can tell.

    I don't usually vote in these "which should I get" polls. But Hot Rod is clearly the better option here. You'll live without having ever owned the ML Frenzy/Rumble set. While the Alternity figures may be great figures, it's a whole new line I don't want to get into. And the Energon combiners are just a big pass. With or without new hands and feet.

    Classics/Henkei Hot Rod is just a great figure. I don't plan on picking up the Rodimus trailer (didn't care for Rodimus Prime), but the figure itself doesn't really need it.

    Pick that toy up. You should've had it long ago.
