    I've only bought one figure so far. But I'm now employed again so I'm looking to get another figure.

    I can't get one that's too expensive. Like a $30 limit.

    What would you recommend?

    if you don't have a movie Ironhide id recommend ROTF Ironhide, you do then id go with Deluxe Sideswipe

    and you should post the one you got already so people don't recommend it

    good point. The one I bought was Breakaway. Mainly because I liked him in the game so much. Although one of his tail fins is all messed up.

    I really am considering Ransack. I just love the idea of a biplane transformer.

    Ransack is awesome, you should get him.

    In fact, except for the Sidesways and retooled Barricade mold, all the ROTF-mold figures are pretty good so far.

    well that probably settles it for Ransack. I just wanted to make sure he didn't have some huge horrible flaw.

    I went by Target today and saw the HA figures and wow, they are BIG. I wasn't expecting that. I am definitely considering HA Sideswipe.

    The only issue with Ransack is that his limbs are on ball-joints, so they'll pop off more likley than not, but they pop right back on just as easy.

    As for HA Sideswipe, the double pistons that attach to the legs need to be replaced with a more flexible rubber casting or have the bottom pair nipped in the dead-center, or else SS won't be very poseable.

    Get Human Alliance Bumblebee instead of Sideswipe. The deluxe version of sideswipe is better than the Human Alliance version.

    You've got the right idea. Quoted from another thread:

    yeah he's the one I'm really drooling over. I just wanted to make sure no one would recommend him so that's why I put the dollar limit. haha. He's definitely on my 'must buy' list. So is Jetfire and a few other big guys. But I'm still pretty broke right now so trying to keep to a budget.

    I know this is techincally cheating, but

    Scout: Knockout

    Deluxe: Sideswipe

    Voyager: Mixmaster.


    If I had to choose overall, Mixmaster.

    You really can't go too wrong with Human Alliance. So far I have Sideswipe and Bumblebee and both of them are pure win IMO.

    Eventually though, with budget and everything set aside, Leader Prime is the figure to get from this line.
