    Hey!

    So I'm thinking of picking up an Energon Rodimus and Downshift. I missed Energon (and the whole unicron thing really) and wasn't into the aesthetic much but do like these figures...

    I've been thinking I'd give enegon a go cos the superlink stuff sounds like it could be cool... so... what do you guys think?

    Are these figures decent or are there better ones I should look at?

    Cheers chaps!

    Those two are a couple of the better autobots, but in my opinion, just about all of the Decepticons to come out of energon were awesome. Not a huge fan of the terrorcons, but the deluxe and voyager class 'cons were some of the best to come out of the whole AEC trilogy.

    If you can dig the combining, try Prowl and Inferno. Apparently Energon Galvatron is even better than the Megatron release, which is pretty awesome in its own right.

    Energon Bulkhead is amazing. I kind of regret selling mine...

    Hi.

    Energon had a few decent figures. And some sweet translucent weapons.

    But back then Takara's Superlink had a few better colors for a few of them.

    Superlink Wheeljack (Downshift)
    Energon Galvatron
    Superlink Ironhide
    Superlink Black Zarak (Skorponok)
    Energon Quickstrike
    Energon Shockblast (Shockwave)
    Energon Omega Sentinal
    Superlink Arcee

    And out of all that I only kept Ironhide, Galvatron and Shockblast on display.

    I sold most of my Energon. I am keeping Omega Supreme though.

    I'm still keeping Alpha Q though I may sell it in the future.

    Skyblast. Skyblast is the most awesome, sexy figure of that line.

    On a more objective note... Rodimus makes a good shirt. Stay away from the voyager autobots.

    Starscream, Shockblast, Galvatron, Divebomb, Windrazor/Treadshot, Wing Saber (awesome Op-accessory or awesome brick), Arcee, Grimlock (What? no, YOU shuddup!)

    Most of the Decepticons. The Autobot Ultras. Not the smaller Autobots.

    My favorites were always the Ultra molds, Scorponok, Landmine and Bulkhead (but I think Quickstrike is the superior deco on that one).

    IMHO most of the Energon Decepticons were really good. There was really only one Autobot I like enough to keep, that's Landmine. Bulkhead was decent too. But the combining gimmick kind of ruined most of the Autobots from the line.

    Tell you what, There aren't very many. There's Shockwave of course (goes for a bit of money these days), Wheeljack (will be getting moved-aside when the Classics 3.0 version gets released), Dreadwing's alright & Bulkhead was a decent Springer before FP's created one. I don't know why I bought Energon Rodimus though... :confused:

    Shockblast is great. Omega Supreme is also quite awesome.

    Edit: I totally forgot about Scorponok. He's actually pretty good too. Very unique looking.

    Dreadwing and Landmine! Although I much prefer the Botcon 09 Wings of honor Landshark colors to Landmine's. The energon starscream is also one of my favorite versions of the character.

    Inferno was the best autobot combiner to me. Especially when he's the shirt and Rodimus is the pants.

    The main one's I like the best:

    Inferno/ Roadblock
    Strongarm
    Landmine
    Mirage
    Starscream
    Ironhide (Yes, Ironhide)

    I'll echo that most of the Decepticons are pretty darn good toys and that the Autobots' combining gimmick ruined a lot of them

    In no particular order...

    Scorponok (any version is great, but the Superlink deco is puuuuurrrrty)
    Mirage/Dreadwing/Botcon Banzaitron
    Landquake (the redeco of Landmine looks better, to me)
    Divebomb (my favorite of the scouts)
    Galvatron (the giant Hasbro one)
    Sharkticon
    Omega Sentinel
    Energon & Blizzard Sabers
