    So, let's say... if you got limited cash, while there are three figs standing in front of you ready to be picked, but you could only pick one out of three. What's its gonna be?

    Henkei Astrotrain?
    Armada Tidal Wave?
    Animated Lugnut?

    Having never seen Lugnut in person and only ever having Classics Astrotrain... Go with Tidal Wave. Total badass.

    I would also have to say Tidal Wave as he's one of the few Armada molds worth owning, and pretty awesome at that.

    I've owned all three of these figures in the past, still own two of them, and I'd easily pick either Lugnut or Tidal Wave. Astrotrain is cool, but the chrome is just a waste, especially being placed in an area that HAS to scrape against other plastic when being transformed.

    Lugnut just slightly gets the edge over TW because I love the big... lug.

    Tidal Wave, definitely. I'd have chosen Lugnut if he were bigger.

    I'm going to jump on the Tidal Wave bandwagon here. He's a lot of fun and a pretty imposing figure as well!

    Personally, out of the three listed, I would go for Lugnut. Astrotrain is cool, but the origional/Hasbro version is much better. As for Tidal Wave, I've heard good things about him, but the lack of some articulation is one reason I've never owned the mold. However, if the mold gets repainted into the Universe line, say as Broadside for example, I'd most likely get him, as he is an interesting mold.

    TIDAL-WAVE TIDAL-WAVE TIDAL-WAVE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    If your gonna go with Tidal-Wave go with Energon Tidal-Wave. Energon Tidal Wave is clearly the best of the 3 Tidal Wave's

    Lugnut.

    One of the best figures in the Animated line, one of my personal favorites of any line really.

    Lugnut is pretty abundant now so you can get him later, Tidal wave is probably the one to get now.

    Tidal Wave. I've already got Classics Astrotrain, and Lugnut will be easy enough to get for a while yet.

    Tidal Wave's the only one of the three I have (Armada and Energon), and he's fantastic. Energon's my favourite version; the colourscheme's really pretty. As has been said, Lugnut's gonna be easy to get for a while yet (and you never know, if you wait, he might even get cheaper).

    Armada Tidal Wave. I have all 3 but Tidal Wave is way harder to get so him first.

    I'd go Henkei Astrotrain because he is such a cool-looking toy but you also can't go wrong with Tidal Wave either. I would pass on Lugnut.
