    If only one Optimus Prime toy and only one Megatron toy could lead theyr respective forces into battle,who would they be?

    They have to be able to somehow be compatible with almost every TF toy line,the major ones anyway.

    I'm just saying cuz I feel like I dont have a Megatron to be my end all Megatron toy.

    Masterpeice Optimus feels good for an Optimus but i'm open to everyones thoughts.

    I'm no fan of G1 toys but most things are G1 inspired so the answer is obvious.

    For Optimus I like how his GF/Cybertron self looks, the size and powerful look of it.

    For Megs, hard to pick but I am kinda leaning toward animated earth mode.

    same for megatron(masterpiece and classics), followed by animated leader class megatron.

    My personal choices for each:
    1. MP Prime
    2. RotF Leader Prime
    3. Revoltech Prime
    4. Classics Prime

    1. MP Megatron
    2. Animated Leader Megatron
    3. Revoltech Megatron
    4. Alternity Silver Megatron

    Throw in the G1 figures of each for nostalgic purposes.

    My thoughts are similar to Lbsammills51's, if a little re-shuffled (and with a few replacements):

    Prime: ROTF Leader (though the Takara "Buster" release looks to be the definitive version), Masterpiece, Henkei, and.... hmmmm.... uh, I guess Cybertron (though I don't like that mold as much as most people seem to)

    Megs: Animated Leader, Masterpiece, Henkei Voyager, and Classics Special Edition Deluxe (the white repaint of Tank Megatron sold through HTS.... man I love that little figure)

    I would think masterpiece Megatron would be good but I like the look of Classics Megs a lot.Ive never seen him up close though,is he a really good Megatron?

    Also,Cybertron Optimus is pretty great as far as Optimis's(Optimi?)go.

    I think Movie Prime works great too though one of the best things about masterpiece Prime and Cybertron Prime is they'r removable Matrix's.

    Also,my concern with the revoltech figures is they'r height.They look good but how tall are they?I'd say an OP and a Megs have to be at least voyager height.

    Masterpiece Starscream seems to be th ultimate incarnation of his character by the way.His height and look seem great for multiple toy lines.

    MP Prime with the trailer and MP Megatron along with their G1 toys
    Done
    period end of story. No more questions.

    Both figures are what they were made to be plus more, and having their original G1 selves with them is pure energy.

    If you wanna display Prime or Megs with smaller figures, I'd go for Classics Prime and Henkei Megs.

    I just got a closer look at Henkei Megatron.He does look pretty cool and his look is traditional Megatron while still looking like it could cross different series well.I'm gonna have to get him.I'm ashamed to say I have niether him nor classics Optimus.(sigh)

    I still have a height issue though.Maybe i'm being picky?lol

    Classics Prime might be hard to get nowadays, good luck on that. Henkei Megs is just way better imo than the american release.

    Ive seen him but he's really pricey.I'd have to be kinda desperate to pay so much.Sadly it might come to that being that i'm addicted to this...

    On the other hand, Henkei Megatron seems to be going for a decent price considering he's an import.

    I greatly dislike MP Megs. So easily broken and he just looks add to me.

    Oh Classics Prime is around, he's just way overpriced than his retail price, like many other bots. Good luck to you on that.
