I recently had to pick ONE G1 Megs (all I could budget for), and it's a tough decision. Do I go for loose original Japanese G1? TFC #6? Encore? I had the added issue of being in Australia - customs hate anything that looks like a gun, and are known for trashing stuff (forget keeping something MIB if their X-ray shows a gun profile...), so I also had to source from within Aus (read: $$$) I went for TFC as it seemed to be the "most complete" option, and had the firing capability , though lacking the ephemeral (true or not) conviction that the original Japanese manufactured ones are somehow better (rightly or wrongly, I tend to think they are). It would also give me cartoon correct colours (ie not black e-hobby, cool as it is). Has anyone else had to limit themselves to just one Megatron? If so, which one? PS - if it hasn't already come up here - think you guys have it bad with orange plugs? MP-05 totally banned in most states here!!
