    I have a list of figures that I will eventually need, but I can't get them all at once. Could you guys help sort out my list, I need to know what to buy first, second, third, etc...

    The figs I need are:

    Primus

    ALT Optimus and mirage

    and Deluxe Cyb Prime.

    Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.

    Get the alts first, they'll be the rarest. Then the deluxe Prime since Classics will be coming along soon enough. Primus will be around at least till xmas.

    agreed, get the alts first. Worry about the rest later.

    Unless you Want a Uni. head with your Primus, go ahead and wait till christmas, you might be able to get the minicons with him though!

    As said above... If you want the Unicron head, look for Primus now. Personally, I'd go for the Alts first though.

    Go for the DX Prime first. The Alts will probably be in the assortment with Rumble next year. Primus ought to stick about, though don't leave him too long as he might disappear in the holiday buying spree.

    Yeah, I agree the difficult choice will be Primus with head or Alt.

    You're right, I should go ALTs first, then Deluxe Prime and Primus later. This may sound weird, but I think the Unicron head thing is gross. Thanks again for all your help!

    Go for the deluxe Prime first, With the variant aswell, (Planet symbols, no-planet symbols), It may be difficult to track down the one you want.

    Symbols or no symbols, I just want one that ain't broke. But now I feel compelled to get bendy Prime now, hmmm...

    D Prime or ALT Prime and or Mirage, I heard complaints from both,

    Ponder... ponder... ponder...

    Alright!! As it stands my list goes:

    1. Deluxe prime

    2. Alts (Prime and Mirage)

    3. Primus!

    thanks again, again! But one small request, could one of you kind souls supply pictures of the factory error prime in package, highlighting the defect?

    I believe Prime doesnt have the factory error (with the arms), apparently it was fixed before release, or so I've heard.
    Or do you mean the variant with no symbols.

    There have been isolated reports of the arm error on Prime. Most are okay, check the TF Feedback forum thread on the guy, I think one out of all the people posting in there got one with the error.
    It's like a rare first-run varient, except in this case, if you find it, you lose!
