    I just received $150.00 coupon for a screwed up transaction from EBAY.

    I've been looking at getting a transformable Masterpiece trailer but they don't seem to be sold separately. I was looking at the THS Black Convoy figure or Encore Skylinx and Omega Supreme.

    The coupon is a one time, one ITEM coupon.

    I'm not into G1 figures and don't like the Masterpiece Megatron.

    So what would you buy? Is there a figure in that price range that you Absolutely would not do without?

    If you're not into G1 steer clear of the encore figures ;) 

    What's the expiry date? Maybe some Binaltechs?

    You're not into G1, yet you're considering Sky Lynx and Metroplex?

    Uh...

    Anyway, I would buy a lot(As in one auction, more than one thing) of figures, that way I caould get my money's worth...

    Then again, I would probably get Masterpiece Prime(Jap, not BD, and with trailer) or Magnus...

    Let me clarify, I LOVE G1, however not into buying Vintage G1 figures from back in the 80s, too much money for bad figures but valuable due to their age. Encore is fine, though I like the newer better technology figures.

    It may seem odd, but, while I'm not into G1 either, there are some I wouldn't mind getting ahold of if Hasbro were to ever reissue them. That is assuming they're ever going to reissue something that isn't Optimus Prime, lol.

    As for what you should get, I have no clue. Only reason I ever go onto ebay is to either check out future TF figures, or out of complete boredom. Only piece of advice I can give you is to get what you want to get.

    Encore is rereleases of the G1 toys... therefore they are no better than their old G1 counterparts...

    He meant he didn't want old and used first release figures, but he considers the encore line since they are new and reissued.

    I see the trailer up by itself up fairly often. Almost got one last week, ended at around $65 i think. If you've already got MP Prime, I guess MP-04 would be a waste, usually in the $240 with shipping range though.

    Crystal Clear Convoy is usually around that range, maybe little more.

    Could also get someone to put a lego brick up for a $150 buy it now and buy that and pocket whats left after ebay/paypal charges.
