    This is to all those whom bought all of the Prime Toys. (Fun)

    "Taps" - YouTube

    A MEMORIAL TO YOUR WALLETS

    "O CANADA" - YouTube

    AND TO THOSE CANADIANS WHO HAVE SEARCHED ALL OVER TO FIND THE FE FIGURES FOR THEIR OWN KIN AS WELL AS PEOPLE FROM AROUND THE GLOBE!

    THANK YOU FOR YOUR EFFORTS!​






    -------------------------------------

    This thread is also about your personal opinion of your favorite and Least favorite figure of the line. (this includes FE and RiD)

    Right now I am loving Voyager Prime. Bulkhead is awesome but Prime just has that "Majesty" and "grace" that makes him look bold.

    I have on the way RiD Wheeljack, RiD Soundwave, RiD Voyager Megatron, and FE Bee.

    Last thing I need to get is either FE Vehicon or RiD Vehicon.

    I'd have found it funnier if you linked us to the Canadian anthem since that's largely where people have been getting em from, but its all good.

    Also, deluxe Starscream is easier my favorite figure of the line, and in my opinion, he's miles ahead of the others. This isn't a knock on anything else, but yeah. He's easily my MVP, and here's my line breakdown.


    Tier 1
    Deluxe Starscream

    Tier 1.5
    FE Vehicon & FE (voyager) Prime

    Tier 2

    FE Arcee, FE Cliffjumper, RID (voyager) Megatron, FE Bulkhead, FE (deluxe) Megatron



    ... I guess everything else would go into Tier 3 because it either hasn't impressed me a lot, or I've yet to see enough of it to form a proper opinion (aka, much of the RID line). The RID Megatron would probably be in Tier 2 if his colouring wasn't off, and if his gun wasn't so silly.

    Very true. First post edited.


    I'm excited to get my hands on Starscream, he should be coming here soon. (ordered)

    Sounds good. :) 


    Also, I can easily see myself liking Ratchet & the new Vehicon quite a lot, and possibly even the new Soundwave, Knockout & Arcee. I just don't really feel that I've seen enough to fairly assess them, especially when compared to ones that I own or even that've been whored out online in terms of videos & pics. Also, Bulkhead really is a wonderful figure (no doubt), especially given the Takara treatment, and especially when you get to look at how well the transformation was designed. I just happened to like the voyager Prime quite a bit better, so I put him higher up on my personal list.

    What angers me is that fans arn't helping out, and are still trying to profit off of a 23 dollar toy...

    Thanks Canadians. First, the American Revolution and now this. We owe you big time.

    Interesting theory you have. Wrong. And delusional. But still interesting. You have any facts to prove this mushroom-induced theory of yours?

    Well, he's probably just upset that people (myself included) weren't mass selling everything we found at cost to board members, but rather at some sort of markup. However, instead of getting off topic & into a debate about this stuff that probably won't end well for either side (judging by past experience anyway, scalping debates never do), I think we should just let it go.


    Also, I'm curious to hear how we're displaying these figures. Are they on their own shelf, are they mixed in with others, and who (if any) has become the focal point?

    Small markup is fine. I think it's fair. There are a lot of guys here however selling them for double the retail price. That's not helping, that's taking advantage. Nature of the beast though.

    To answer your question, I have mine displayed with the rid releases. This is before I bought voyager Megs. I have to update the pic but I just throw them all in together.

    I only have Pink Arcee, Taxi Bumblebee, FE Starscream, RID Cliffjumper & RID Wheelack opened right now. They where on a shelf where Starscream is getting the crap beaten out of him.

    You want the toys, you pony up the scratch to get them. No one owes you a damn thing.

    I think RID Cliffjumper has become my favorites of the Prime line. I love his car mode, his transformations is really cool, and he looks very natural and energetic in most poses.

    Agreed. Even though I have the first edition Cliffjumper, I really like the rid version.

    For a new series of toys, no one can deny that Hasbro's given us quite a few in a VERY short period of time.

    I have a FE Arcee, and I really like the figure.

    I'd like to get some more figures, but I'll wait and let the dust settle first :)

    TJ, I am so jelly of you right now.

    Anyways, I've only got FE Starscream and the NYCC exclusive Arcee and Bumblebee at the moment, with Bulkhead, Cliffjumper, Megatron and a Vehicon on backorder on HLJ.

    What are the three Optimus you have in the back? Are the Hasbro and Takara voyager primes that different in person?

    He's got both the Takara and the Hasbro versions of the FE mold, and he's got RID Optimus.
