    I'm thinking of getting these two. Are they worth $25 each? Is one superior to the other? All thoughts welcome!

    As a Revoltech fan, I would say that they're great toys, and good ambassadors for the line. Some people prefer Megatron because of Prime's unconventional shoulder articulation, but as a fan of the line I can assure you that it's still on Par with every other figure in the line in terms of design and articulation.

    As a Transformers fan, they're a must have. I've wanted them ever since the prototypes were shown in Hobby Japan ( a hundred years ago) as Dreamwave Comics figures, with Pat Lee style heads.

    I'm willing to pay $25 for the Megatron, but not that amount for the Convoy, especially when I have a THS-02 in the mail for me.

    Megatron is worth that much, Convoy maybe not. I'm not a fan of Convoy's shoulders, though Megatron is totally awesome. If you don't mind ordering from overseas, try ordering them from HLJ and going with SAL shipping - should work out at about $20 each.

    I got my Ultra Magnus for about $25 and I love it. I also have Megatron (paid about that for it) and he's pretty cool. Don't like his head/neck area as much though.

    I wish they were a little bigger than what they were, but they're still pretty cool. Don't regret spending about $20 a piece on them at all.

    Prime got me hooked on Revoltech and is in the running for my favorite toy of all time. He's well worth $25 to me, probably more.

    Megs is an even better Revoltech than Prime with the nicer shoulder joints.

    I grabbed Magnus and Megs, and they are great little guys.

    Just ordered Megatron and put Prime on backorder from BBTS. Hopefully I'll have him by early next week.

    I can't recommend Revoltech Megs enough. Convoy is great too, except for the shoulder articulation, as others have mentioned before. I paid $25 for both and I'm happy with them both. So I'd say they're worth the $25.

    I prefer Megatron, but Prime is cool too. This is comming from a guy who doesn't really like non transforming Transformers that much (with the exception of these two and the Robot heroes)

    I love 'em both, although they were a little lacking in the accessories department compared to some other Revoltechs. But they made up for it just by being characters I love.

    How many accessories can a TF have? Anything more than a weapon is a bonus, really.

    I don't have Convoy, but want him, but what's the problem with his articulation? Just curious

    Convoys shoulders are a floppy mess, but Megs is pure win.

    Damn it, I was hoping you guys would say these sucked! :lol 
    I was going to cut them from my pile of loot at bbts, but it sounds like they're too good to miss.
    Thanks for the info!

    A couple of questions:

    *Does Magnus come with a Matrix?

    *Does anyone know if the Matrix fits in the flip-up chest-thing that Titanium G1 Magnus has?
