    I am so tempted to get Protector but I have wave 2 RTS and Scourge and Kup on Preorder at BBTS. I can only afford either one this month. So what sounds better. Get Protector now and wait for the mainline stuff when it hits retail, or wait for my preorder to fill(assuming it happens this month like bbts estimates) and get protector later.

    Get Protector now. BBTS has plenty of them in stock, but with all things Fansproject, you can't wait around. Kup and Scourge will be everywhere soon enough, and for less than what BBTS is selling them for.

    Always go FP over mainline. Mainline stuff will be readily available in some shape or form for a few months after they get released. FP stuff can run out a little faster and then you'll be kicking yourself for missing out on it.

    Yeah, definitely get Protector now. A general release retail item is always going to be easier to find later than a limited-run FansProject item.

    If you're planning on getting Generations Wheeljack and Thundercracker as well, you could get the Series 03 - Set of 4, which also has Kup and Scourge but isn't due until February. That would let you get Protector this month and still have those two on order, but not have to worry about them coming in this month as well.

    Agree witheveryone else. Get Protector now and just get Kup and Scourge at retail. In a month or two everyone will be complaining they're clogging shelves where the next wave should be lol

    I personally have no desire for protector, but I'll have to agree with everyone else. If you must get it, get it now because that item will be a bitch to find on the secondary market, and that's not even considering the price.
