    I just got myself a botcon alpha trion. I've wanted him for years and I finally had enough trade fodder to acquire him. Well i m liking the maketoys giant devy as well. I wish I could just buy him and not have this dilema but I don't have the funds. I probably could trade alpha for one, but don't know if I should. What would you do?

    I'd go for Alpha Trion because it's the one that you've wanted for years.

    Alpha Trion is the one I would keep. It is entirely up to you. Whatever one will make you happier.

    Alpha Trion. As an exclusive he's gonna be more intrinsically worth it than Giant is. Giant is still available, while Alpha Trion might not always be.

    A3 is an important Transformers character and this is the ONLY toy representation of him Hasbro has ever made.
    You are contemplating trading him for a representation of Devastator, a character who has had so many toys made after him, He rivals Optimus Prime. Albeit green Giant isn't a bad-looking figure.

    I think you have that new toy symptom where you just want the latest and greatest thing: Maketoys Giant. In the long run though I think you'll be more satisfied with the Alpha Trion figure you've tried so hard to get.

    There's a knock off of green giant on the way, if that's of any help to you.

    Save up your money and buy one of those Devastators down the line.

    You don't NEED it today.
