    I'm trying to buy a TF for the ring bearer in my wedding, and I was hoping that I could get some advice. What's the best $10 TF toy that I can get for a six year old.

    I'm leaning toward FAB Prime, but that says 4+, so I'm a little afraid it's too basic, but the deluxes at 5+ seem slightly fragile, especially with movie QC (I'm looking at you Bumblebee). FAB has the advantage of the missile being tethered to the toy, so if he carries it around the whole day of the wedding, he's not likely to lose the missile.

    I'd be happy to take advice from anyone who has kids in this age range; it's very different than buying for myself.

    Thanks!

    FAB Frenzy... The disk thing is AWESOME. Easily the best $10 I spent on movie stuff in terms of play value...

    If you can find him, I'd go with Concept Camaro Bumblebee. Everything I have seen of the toy..it is beyond impressive and SHOULDN'T have any problems.

    FAB Frenzy is nice as well, tons of fun to mess with.

    I agree, The Fast Action Battler (FAB) toyline is the best for a 6 yr old. They are easy to transform and they cost $10.00. There are 11 to choose from, and they were all in the movie.

    Autobots:
    Ratchet
    Ironhide
    Jazz
    Optimus Prime
    Bumblebee

    Decepticons:
    Starscream
    Brawl
    Barricade
    Blackout
    Frenzy
    Megatron

    If he's a fan of Optimus Prime, I'd go with Fast Action Battler Prime. There's also the Bump N' Go figures. Roll'em into something and they pop up transform.

    FABS would definitely be the way to go if you're looking for something that will transform. I'd probably stay away from Frenzy, though. He's a little more complex than the rest of them.

    I would also suggest the Cyber Slammers. They're really basic, but they have a lock on the bottom that lets you play with them in car mode.
