    So, general question, just trying to gauge responses, and see what others think.

    Which do you prefer, the First edition ones, or the Newer ones?

    Personal, I don't much care fore blue forearm prime.

    Wondering what the new bulkhead might look like.

    LOVING the megatron ( wonder what Takara will do with paint aps there) And Steve.

    I think you get a mixed bag:

    - FE Cliff Jumper
    - FE Optimus
    - RiD Megatron
    - FE and RiD Vehicons (would be nice to have 3 of each)
    - FE Zombie Jumper

    I can base on images and videos only but i really like the both Cliffjumpers. They both look good in their own way. As for the Optimus figure the first edition looks better especially the back kibble but i do not mind the RID voyager at all even with the cape. The deluxe Bumblebee the first edition looks better from what i have seen but but again the RID one does not look bad just not as good.

    As much as I like the FE toys, RiD has Soundwave and Wheeljack, so no contest.

    FE Cliffjumper (personal and general opinion)

    FE Prime (personal and general opinion)

    RiD Vehicon (personal and general opinion, though I was going to get one of each because I love both designs)

    RiD Megatron by merits of being a Voyager.

    I hear that FE Bumblebee is better, but to be perfectly honest I haven't even given either of them a serious look since... well... they're Bumblebee. I'm rather sick to death of him.

    Soundwave and WJ weren't released in FE

    Will Zombie CJ be released as FE? Or has this also been axed?

    General consensus seems to be that people prefer the First Edition's of Voyager Prime, Deluxe Bumblebee and Deluxe Cliffjumper better than their RID counterparts, whereas the RID Vehicon looks to be superior to the FE version.

    Won't be surprised if the FE Voyager Bulkhead will also remain a favorite considering all the gimmicky shit they're loading into the RID Voyagers.

    The only ones left that will have dual releases are Deluxe Arcee & Starscream, but obviously we haven't seen their RID versions yet.

    i keep looking at the FE voyager two pack at BBTS of bulkhead and Optimus.... just 70$ after shipping for the pair is pretty steep for mass-market toys.

    UGH. wonder if i should wait and chance ross, or just bite the bullet.

    Oh yeah. I thought he was just comparing both toylines since he mentioned megatron too (because I forgot about FE deluxe megs too so it was a DOUBLE MISTAKE COMBO)

    Not so much comparing the line as a a whole against each other, more on a figure by figure basis.

    I think the "deluxe bikon" will be the RiD Arcee release, and the RiD Starscream release will be a voyager (as seen at Botcon last year) with the gimmicky light-up arm cannon.

    "Bikon" is a mis-Romanization of "Vehicon"

    I think the first editions will be better because they will have more collectible value. Kind of like when a new wave of Yu-Gi-Oh cards come out and you want to get the first editions because they're out for a limited time.

    Probably going to go the second edition route. The only first editions I see are Prime and Bee, and new versions of both are inevitably coming out. Probably going to pick up Weaponizer Prime rather than any voyager versions, and grab some Cyberverse stuff too. Optimus Maximus sounds like something that's right up my alley too.

    They already mentioned Arcee on the BBTS page so Bikeon may be a motorcycle Vehicon or a different character all together.

    Basically First Edition Optimus Prime, Starscream, Cliffjumper and Bulkhead are superior, Anything else RID is better except Arcee since we haven't seen pics of RID Arcee.

    Here's my opinion on Optimus and Optimus alone:
    FE Pros:
    Cool gun
    Sword that covers arm
    Red Arm

    FE Cons:
    Faux chest

    RID Pros:
    Real Window Chest

    RID Cons:
    Cape
    Gun
