    I was going to plunk down the $100 plus for Encore G1 Prime and Megs but had second thoughts. Since I dont really like the molds of either one, and since I probably dont plan on playing with my MP-04 or MP-05 much, why not get a few TFs that I definitely will re-enact battles with.

    For about $80 bucks I can get THS-01 Convoy and Revoltech Megatron. Those versions of G1 Prime and Megs kick total ass. And, I can use the Megatron gun that comes with MP-04 as Meg's Alt mode in those battles. Hmm... decisions decisions

    THS Convoy and Revoltech Megatron aren't the same size in robot mode though. Convoy is smaller than Cybertron Armorhide in vehicle mode, for example..

    True. I was actually surprised at how small and yet how detailed THS Convoy was. But he's so much more articulated than most primes and looks way better than Classics Prime.

    He's not that much shorter, maybe an inch or so (I think)

    I think that if you get RT Megs, then get RV Prime, if you don't already have him.

    Yeah, either Revoltech Convoy and Megatron (would be cheaper) or THS and something else. I'd probably say THS, as I absolutely love the little guy.

    Honestly, if you don't have a G1 prime and megatron, you should get them. they're two fantastic molds, and I think every TF fan should own them. They started everything.

    I second Valkysas's opinion.
    but if you aren't gonna be satisfied with them, why get them?
    it's up to you, but if it was me, I would get the Encores.

    I third-ed it (if there's such a term! LOL!). I passed up on the THS Prime because as nice as he is, he's such a "standalone G1 Prime" - he's so small and doesn't fit into any of my TF collection.

    I think it's a bit of a stretch to call G1 Megatron a "fantastic" mold, but that's just me. I do think G1 Prime is pretty great though.

    I don't know Nerdling, it's a tough call. On one hand, THS Convoy is gonna be smaller than Revoltech Megatron and the two are aesthetically VERY different, so they're not going to match up very well. On the other hand, Revoltech Convoy is kind of weird looking and IMO not a very good choice to be representative of the character.

    I'd got for Encore's especially now when you can get the good old moulds for a very decent price withouh blowing the monthly budget...
    I'm waiting for my Encore Convoy to arrive soon... if it hadn't be because I got Takara #6 Megatron reissue misb for a bargain I'd get the Encore too.

    But with that said, THS-02 is awesome too :D  but he's fairly easy to get hold of to a nice price.

    I'd go for the Reissues personally. THS-02 is a cool little toy, but doesn't fit in with any other TFs. Plus the truck mode is hideous IMO. Revoltech Megs is pretty cool, but honestly I'd choose the G1 mold over it. But ultimately it's up to you.

    I'd get the Encores. Based on past releases, they're only going to go up in price.

    If you want figures that you can pose into battle scenes and such, revoltech convoy and megs is the way to go. Every few days they're in some other pose on the shelf in my living room.
