    You are on a vacation to a exotic land.

    You are enjoying yourself, and you even decided to bring two of your favorite Transformer toys for... whatever reason.

    The trip is going fine, you do all the things you find fun on a cruise ship.

    Unfortunately, the voyage has met with an unexpected stop.

    It seems your ship is being raided/sunk/exploded/aleined/turnedintosoup.

    However, you happened to escape this ship with your two favorite Transformers.

    Eventually after floating on a piece of metal/wood you end up on a beautiful island, where a man has been waiting for you.

    The man is well dressed, head to toe it what would seem to be a tuxedo, "I was expecting you." he says to you, as he gives you a victorious clap.

    This either confuses you, or makes you very happy. You are of course the only survivor of this voyage, and this man will possibly take you to freedom.

    The man knows almost what you are thinking, and states. "Welcome to my private island estate. I bought this island in hopes of finding survivors of shipwrecks. Why look at that! You seem to have two plastic men... They look somewhat nifty. I think I will ask for one of those figures, in turn I will give you unlimited food, and shelter."

    You are given this alternitive. This pain staking alternitive.

    Of course you want food and shelter... but, these are your two favorite Transformers, and even at that. He wants one, not both.

    Which do you pick? Why?

    He can have 'em both to be quite frank. I like being alive.

    He can both of them, as they'll be corroded by seawater anyway.

    I will give him both then eat and rest until I am strong. Then when he least expects it I will get rid of him and take back my toys. Then I will be master of the island and I will build a fortress there to house my massive collection in safety.

    Point being, you give him one. The point is essentially. "You have to choose between two of your toys, which do you pick?"

    I'll bring my RTS Jazz and DOTM Sideswipe. Then, when I give him Jazz, I do something to him involving Sideswipe so that I can take it back, kill him and rule the island.

    Roll a die.

    On a roll of 1-2, flip to page 37

    On a roll of 3-5, flip to page 43

    On a roll of 6, reality warps and you are back to reading this on a message board with your two favourite toys gathering dust on your shelf.


    I'd bring beast wars ultra megs and primal. The guy can have the munky.

    He had better be a quicker draw than me. I'll just take what I need and possibly wear his face as a mask.

    2010 Unicron and ROTF OP. He can have OP but as soon as I find a way off that island, FUS RO DAH and I'll take OP back.

    He can have either for all I care. I can just buy a brand new one later on when I leave that isn't damaged by seawater.

    You can't have much fun with action figures if your dying of starvation so I guess I'd have to compromise.

    Though, if Cybertron Primus was one of the two figures I could just use him as a projectile and take advantage of said shelter and food supply. Dem spikes, yo.

    Option 3 - Eat him and take his island. Or take his island and eat him, whichever is easier.

    But, seriously, this isn't really much of a question. I can always buy another TF, even if it is one of my favorites, so I'd be happy to trade one or both for unlimited food and shelter. Hell, if it really is unlimited food and shelter, I'd essentially be trading 1 - 2 TFs to be set for life and never have to work again. That's a great deal.

    I'll give him one toy for the food and shelter.

    I'll give him the second to set up another shipwreck that conveniently leaves Olivia Wilde the lone survivor finding this island.

    I can't fully answer the question because I seriously don't know what my second favorite TF is. My favorite is HftD Leader Starscream, and the guy on the island isn't getting him.

    I'd ask the dude which one he'd prefer. If no preference, I'd give him whichever I think looks like the better toy, and probably give a little explanation, true or not, why this toy is considered to be a good one.

    A little bullshit to get on the good side of the guy holding your continued survival in his hands is acceptable.

    Let's just hope that's all this lonely guy wants.
