    If I had to choose, I say Sunstorm vs. Ratchet. My reason is because Sunstorm is a diifferent character that was in the show. It is probably your only chance to get a different character. Where as G1 Shockwave is just a repaint meant to be the same character. (which doesn't take away from his coolness he is still really cool.)

    ill say shockwave, i know im one of the few but im just not really impressed with starscream..in the show either..i mean its a great mold but i don't like transforming him or sunsstorm...i have the hardest time getting his pieces to lock into place, so that throws me off from him.

    I agree with this word for word. Extra character > same-character repaint (plus I actually prefer the grey Shockwave).

    Plus, Sunstorm's gaudy, ridiculous color scheme makes me happy.

    Both Activators are really pretty good, although I think Bumblebee has a slight edge because of Ratchet's compromised vehicle mode.

    I think both are great and genuinely want to pick both up when tehy come here, but I would say Shockwave only because of Derrick's April Fools thing made it look so much cooler compared to Sunstorm.

    Wasnot going to get these two packs, but for $4.99 I couldn't refuse....the better one is Shockwave/ BB, mainly because personally I find the Voyager Starscream mold to be garbage.

    I'd say Shockwave b/c Activators Bumblebee is better than Ratchet.

    Sunstorm.
    Ratchet's garbage though.
    Sunstorm is a new character. I love the SS mould.
    Shockwave... he has Bumblebee, he's got the awesome mould and he's G1. That's all he has going for him.
    Shockwave's new form isn't gonna be in the show. How do I know? He's a main character and he was released in a store exclusive.
    Sunstorm, however, is a background character, but was in the show. Awesome.

    I'm torn.
    BB trumps Ratchet easily.
    Shockwave looks awesome, but not show accurate.
    Sunstorm is a new character, and was in the show, but buying a giant day-glo orange Starscream for 5 bucks makes him seem kind of Big Lotsy to me.

    Shockwave vs. Bumblebee, though I wouldn't mind getting the Sunstorm figure (just don't know what I would do with the Ratchet Activator figure though). I'm just more impressed/interested in the Shockwave figure, the purple looks awesome on it, and I was able to come up with a good couple of options for the extra Bumblebee Activator figure (this :D ).

    Shockwave is the better mold, but I only bought the Sunstorm set because he is new. I limit myself to only repaints that create different characters. Besides, I already have a gray Shockwave I'm perfectly happy with. The Activators don't mean much to me, (Ratchet is the first one I have laid a hand on), but I imagine Bumblebee is better. At the very least he is more in scale.

    If I had to choose just one I'd go with Sunstorm. Mainly because he's a completely different character (...other than being a clone of Starscream xD) while Shockwave is just a purple Shockwave... which is also awesome.

    But fortunately I didn't have to choose =]

    Wow the target clearance topic has been big today.

    I voted sunstorm/ ratchet. Mainly because I like the starscream molds weird pop out arm cannons and intentional robotech macross curve in gerwalk mode.

    Much better paint then on the shockwave set as well.

    Ratchet is cool. Its a bit easier to actually play with than the deluxe and the flip change works great on mine.

    also a good set for scale buffs. Little ambulance vs. Big jet.

    Sunstorm is mighty and wise. Though Shockwave is smart and powerful, he cannot be bought over the infinite grace of the incredible Sunstorm.

    c whut i did thar?

    Oh valiant Omega_Soundwave it is such a treat to witness this wordplay in person. Your brilliance is only surpassed by your modesty.

    Sunstorm/Ratchet, because it's the only one of the two that is worth buying.
