    I am Sure these questions have been asked a million times before so I wont make a separate thread for them...
    --So NO Deluxe Leadfoot, Soundwave or Que for any type of U.S. Retail right? (NOT even Ross, Marshalls, T-J Max, etc..)
    --AND IF a Dino figure is ever made by Hasbro, How many years would I wait?

    Ok NOW for the REAL purpose of this thread; I wanted to know what Idea was better..
    1. To have a bot in my collection that represents Movie soundwave I was thinking of using:
    - Prime Soundwave
    - OR a Prime Decepticon Drone and Painting him Silver so match the color a bit more

    Would either work? Yes? No? or pay a big amount to Buy Takara Version..

    2. Dino
    - Use Prime Wheeljack, Paint him Red and do a bit of customizing for him to look a bit more like Dino,,,

    Would either work? Yes? No?

    3. Do you think FOC Bruticus feels too out of place standing beside a movie collection? He looks cybertronian but I really dont know,,, (Random Question)


    Thank You, Like I said; I did not felt the need to make a separate thread for each question and THEN get them blocked (the first two HAVE been asked WAAAYYYY TOOOO much).

    well if you haven't realized prime toy designs look much different than movie toy designs.

    I'm definatley not a fan of Prime toys. It just doesn't look good compared to movie figures.

    It all depends how much you want a movie Soundwave. If you REALLY want him, save up and just buy the Takara version. He's not going anywhere, so you've got plenty of time to save up.

    For Dino, your idea sounds good.

    To answer your last question: He'd definatley will look out of place. I bought TFA Cybertronian Voyager Megatron, and I just used him as a victim to Movie Prime. Definatley out of place.

    Does that answer anything for you?

    For the whole Dino thing i use Kre-O Mirage basically because Kre-o represents movie and g1 characters and its from 2011 so close enough for me.

    Ya, they're definatley overpriced. You can buy a leader toy (I think) for that price. I find Sideways to be a good outer-shell for Dino.

    Instead of using Wheeljack for Dino, use Knockout. He'd be more accurate than Wheeljack because of the chest.
