    so, my birthday is next week, and i've got 100 bucks from my tax return, and am expecting another 100-200 in cash from people...so, what should i get?

    things i am considering are:

    encore megatron

    encore optimus prime

    encore starscream

    energon overload and optimus prime set (i have an addiction to the overload mold)

    magma convoy gift set (see above)

    sentinel maximus (again, its that mold)

    2005 botcon boxed set (though i truly only want deathsaurus, ironhide and fallback, and i already have dirge...)

    botcon 06 waspinator

    movie premium megatron...

    i think that's everything...i may make some modifications later...but what do you think i should get, and why?

    Knock out some HTF figure that you normally can't afford. I don't know who out of that list is the most HTF, but I'd be picking Encore Megatron if it was my $100.

    BTW, I think I'm going to buy a barbecue grill for my upcoming birthday!

    i can get encore megatron for 60...so he's not as hard to find or afford as some of the others...

    the 05 gift set and magma convoy and energon overload costco set are probably the most expensive...and magma convoy is pretty hard to find...there was someone here who was selling one, but he comes with a powerlinx prime, and i really just dont want that part, but finding them seperate is gonna be bloody hard...

    I have been getting all of the Encore figs, but thats because I owned very few G1 figs.

    With all the cool figs coming out of the Encore line (Skylinx, Omega Supreme, Metroplex ect.) I am looking forward to getting them all. :)

    With $100 + another $100-$200 coming, I would just get all the encore figs you listed.

    If it were me I'd go after whatever figure is the most expensive/difficult to obtain while you got the chance. With the success of the movie and Animated drawing new fans it's only going to get harder later on. And, on the plus side, if you find yourself regretting not getting something different you can always sell what you did buy and have cash for the other. (Due to lack of funds I almost always have to look at collecting in terms of cost.)

    I'd get what I could of those you listed, thats what you seem to want most. Me, I'd be getting pre-release Animated figures like Wave three guys. They wont be out for a few more months AFTER the Animated line finally reaches shelves.

    I think you should go after Sentinel Maximus.

    ...and then sell him to me.

    Don't you need botcon springer still?

    Am I to assume there will be festivities for your birthday? Where, when and will there be strippers and/or booze?

    sentinel is a good idea too...and yeah, i do still need springer, but i think i've already got the funds for him...so he's not part of the list...and yes, there will be festivities...the wife will be contacting you shortly...booze, but no strippers, unless you get boozed enough...but that would be horrible...

    Shee-it, for a $100?

    More like a not-completely-hideous prostitute.
