    i am only going to buy one for 50$ but that does not include shipping. i am wondering with one would be best to buy. i don't want blue megatron, black convoy, skywarp, or cliffjumper.

    So you're saying "Which of the Silver or Black Megatrons is better or should I get Bumblebee or hold out for Starscream?"

    The answer is red or silver Convoy, but you're gonna need more than $50 to get it.

    If you're only going to get one, it would be between Optimus or Megatron. I love all of them though :)

    I'd go with Nemisis Prime or Prime. ( But I'd really go for Magnus )

    With $50 you're only going to be able to get Black Megatron or Bumblebee. Both are great toys.

    I prefer Bumblebee, but Megatron is awesome and the black version is probably the best.

    You can't go wrong with any of them, I have them all and they are great.

    He's not due out until May, so nobody's got a clue on him.

    Personally, I say the best of the lot at the moment is Megatron.

    Convoy would be up there, but he's got a design flaw in his leg that can result in breakage without some modification.

    My Bumblebee and Cliff are in the mail right now, but I don't think I'll like them as much. There's a lot going on with them, but their proportions are a bit off.

    If you get one of the Megatrons, save yourself some heartache and be REALLY REALLY careful with the legs. I've got the Diamond Black version (which is wholly badass). Those rear taillights are fragile, and placed in BAD spots. I never got a real good hang of transforming him without putting stress on the tips, and they both cracked, both in different spots. I added some superglue to reinforce em, which helped (though added an opaque-ness that isn't very nice), and even still, one of the tips broke further - the superglue I had added was the only thing that held it on. After glueing that back in place, I put it back in the package. I plan to take some pictures of the "fixxed" areas and put it up for sale. I don't want to damage it further, and I think it may be better off in someone else's hands.

    I have the red Convoy and silver Megs, both of which are pretty solid.

    I also picked up BB and CJ tonight from here:

    SearchResult

    $100.75 total shipped for both.

    Dude, go for the GT-R Black Convoy Repaint, before he goes up in value too! :p
