    Its rare when my mom says go ahead and order something online (I usually have to convince her BBTS is safe EVERY time) and for my birthday, and for me finally completing my Eagle Scout, she offered me one thing in that price range. I'm starting a Henkei collection but really don't wanna get into Alternators but I really want Rodimus (my fav character). So, any help?


    Thanks!

    Get Henkei Rodimus. You get the best of both worlds. Also get Henkei Mirage or Prime if you're at it.

    I wouldn't bother with the Alternators now, too much fuss for a dead line.

    As much as I love the Alternators line, my vote goes to Henkei Megatron.

    Not having SDCC Roddy, I'm gonna be partial to Henkei Megs.

    Henkei Megs is teh secks, but it isn't that great if you have Classics Megs, too.

    So... Henkei Megs unless you have Classics Megs.

    i have henkei megs n i love it :D  i only have henkei rodimus, not alternators so i dunno about that, so my vote's definitely for henkei megatron
    i'd say u should get him even if u have classics megs lol...personally,i find the color scheme much better on the henkei version

    Alt Rodimus is pretty bad-ass...agreed one of THE best Alt molds you can get.
    Plus he's dropped in price a bit to where you can actually say to yourself "ooh, I would pay that price" :D

    I don't have them but Alt Rodimus seems really good to me and worth the money more

    I think you guys are missing the more important issue. Congrats on the Eagle Scout Project. I too am an Eagle scout. What was your project about?

    Go with Alt Rodimus. He's Hot Rod and he doesn't have a bunch of tacky chrome. That's a winning combination in my book.

    I'd go with Rodimus. Alternators are much better figures in my opinion than the classics figures in most cases I'd say.

    Don't get me wrong. I love the classics figures that I have, and am looking forward to picking up the rest of universe 2.0, but the Mirage mold is definitely one of the cooler alternator molds, and the additions to the Rodimus version were great. Classics Megatron was cool and all, but not quite the same level as rodimus. Plus, the henkei paint looks kind of cheesy I think.

    Alternators Rodimus would be my vote as well. The Alternators line was just so spectacular that if you have a chance to dive in... go for it.

    thanks for the congrats! i held a food drive and generated over 600 pounds of food for our local food bank that serves the needy in my area. now i'm just waiting for my board of review :D !

    anyway, i'm afraid i decieved you all. i had changed my mind and decided to go with rodimus but i didn't like the price at BBTS (tryin to save my parents a few bucks :) )so i was searching eBay and in the spur of the moment, i ended up getting this bad boy:[​IMG]

    it was MISB and my FIRST ever from a G1 mold (for those who dont know, i've only been collecting since the movie line so until now i've had only movie, animated, and a few henkeis on the way)!! i'm actually really excited!!!!!! thanks, i'm sure i'll get alt. rod and henkei megs someday!!

    Alt Rodi is the best Alternator wit Mirage. I LOVE the mold, great transformation too. Fantastic figure. Megs is cool but not as fun.
