    Yep! While moving furniture around in my room, I came across an old Christmas card that had a nice, crisp, 100 dollar bill. Given that I'm all set with money, I figured I'd spoil myself with it, and have come to the conclusion that I have no idea what I should get.

    On one hnd, I've been tempted to get a new Bumblebee given that my current RTS version doesnt lock into vehicle mode that well, the doors and chest piece being the problem.

    Another I've considered getting is a Rodimus, as my current one is the BiS one, which is a little too bright red for my tastes, plus his arm pops off every time I transform him.

    United Scourge is also on my list, as I've been considering getting him s Scourge, given that I already have 5 Hasbro ones, which I think of as Sweeps, given the lack of distinction between them.

    But then there's Prime toys! not so much RID at the moment, but FE. I've decided I can live with RID Prime and Arcee, but BB, Cliffjumper and Bulkhead are still on my list. Bulkhead maybe not, depending on his RID toy. but BB is definate, CJ is a maybe.

    Then of course theres 3rd Part stuff yet to come out.


    Sooo torn. Opinions?

    Well, when you hit a motherload like that, your first notion is to run out and spend it. But you might find that if you set it aside for a moment, you may have a cache to fall back on if you need a little extra or when making an ever bigger purchase.

    But I know that I would never be able to save it, so why should I bother?
    First Edition Bulkhead may be tempting, but it might be worth it to see what may be in store for his RiD version. We may get lucky and it will be a simple repackage with a new weapon or something. No point in spending a hundred bucks on a scalped Bulky only for you to kick yourself a week later.

    United Scourge? New paint scheme or no, it does seem a bit redundant to already have five in addition to grabbing this guy... plus, the shiny blue is just so out of place.

    Bumblebee and or Rodimus. Hmm... A new RTS BB would be cheap, but if you go and jump on one of the earlier releases it could get pricy, as is with all classics. Rodimus is pretty damn expensive nowadays ever since the Fansproject thingydoo. I can't see the prices for those going down in the immediate future... so, these might be more worth your attention then anything.



    But I do recommend saving it. That way, you can have 100 on demand for when there's just something you have to have but may not be in the position for it. :)

    Were it me, I'd probably donate it to charity. I didn't need it yesterday so why not give it to someone who does?

    But were I to indulge in the temptation to use it on myself I would probably spend far too much of it on some FE Prime toys. That's me though.

    Hold it back. I've been in your position before, and wound up full of regret when better things than what I blew the money on appeared later.

    keep a majority of it and put a small part in savings. that way you've got some cash but still a little to fall back on if you really need it.

    wow, alot more "save it for later" answers than I'd expected lol. Only thing with trying to save it for later is that eventually I'll end up probably spending it on gas money-every time i try to save money, somehow something comes up and i need to drive around (dont know why, but it happens ALL the time-nearly missed out on Runabout because of it)

    I'd save it bud. Wait until you find something you cannot leave a store without and buy it.

    Save it.... Valentines Day is coming up, why not use some of that towards your gf if you have one. If not, just save it until a sale pops up of the items you've been wanting to get.
