    Hey, guys, Ali here.. Now I don't know if this is the correct place to post this.. but I saw Toy discussion.. so I figured.. If it's not, then mods please move it.

    But anyway.. so my Birthday is coming up and I decided "Hey, Ali.. You got yourself enough money laying around.. it's time this girl got herself a new toy" So here is my problem. I have a choice between the new Master Mind Creations Cyclops, or the Star Wars Legacy Millenium Falcon. Now I found a good deal on both(160$) But I don't know which one to choose!

    So help me out guys?

    Cyclops, because I think you'd get more of your money's worth out of that.

    Hmm, thanks guys.. this is really hard. I am a huge fan of both Star wars and Transformers and I adore the Falcon but at the same time idol Shockwave.... Hopy crap why is this difficult? -.- I'll let a couple more posts go until I decide.

    I'd put my money into the Transformer that made the Kessel run in just a few parsecs.

    Honestly, that toy looks freaking awesome.

    I'd lean towards the Cyclops. Shockwave is just epic evil, and any other course of action would be illogical. :p  I love the millenium falcon, but Shockwave just takes it all the way.

    Get the Cyclops/Shockwave figure.

    - It has more functionality than the Millennium Falcon.
    - It's two awesome figures in one.
    - It's 3rd party, so once it's gone, it's gone and it's price will skyrocket.
    - The Millennium Falcon is nice, but you might be able to find one used on eBay, later.

    I'd go with Cyclops/Shockwave first.

    The Millennium Falcon is the Millennium Falcon, there's always going to be merch relating to it available.

    How many toys are there of Shockwave, at all? ...and then, how many of them are an awesome Steampunk Boat with a little submersible that *also* turns into Shockwave?

    The choice is clear.

    Of the two, Cyclops. Not a fan of Star Wars crossovers, myself, so my vote is pretty biased.

    You know that really is amazing.. How did I not see it before?!?!.. The Legacy Falcon is amazing.. but you guys are right, there probably will be MANY more releases, if not, ebay is always there. Now Shockwave is a third party product and it's true.. once he's gone, he's gone. Plus it's fucking Shockwave! Cyclops it is! I can't wait to have one of these guys in hand. Thanks fellas.

    Yeah, don't worry about the Falcon. It's huge and difficult to display. Plenty of people will be getting rid of those eventually once they need money and space. Once you do get one, enjoy, they're pretty awesome. I just showed mine to my older cousin (who lived the first trilogy during his teenage years) and he was amazed beyond words. I swear he would've stolen it if we weren't blood. In the meantime, get a kick-ass version of Shockwave few can afford.

    I'm pretty sure you already had your answer before posting on a Transformers board.

    Bias would be an understatement here.

    Heh, I might actually go with the Falcon. If I had any of the compatible figures that is, and that's where all the fun lies. If not it's just a badly proportioned model. :p

    I'm pretty sure I'd be lying if I said you weren't right. I have been contemplating these two for a while now. But yeah.. I'm am a die hard Shockwave fangirl. I have all of his incarnations. Even the little burger king DOTM one! ^.^ But yeah, I can't wait to get that cyclops in the mail. Just ordered on actually lol. You can wait falcon...

    The Falcon is truely awesome. Its huge. Yeah you can find them used. But all 3 I've seen used were missing major parts. I'm more into Transformers right now than Star Wars but I'd still go with the Falcon. The AT-AT is really cool too.

    If we were talking about a decent screen-accurate star destroyer, my vote might go.the other way. But id go for Shockwave in rhis instance, hands down.

    Also, girls who have a hard time choosing between Shockwave and the Milennium Falcon for their OWN birthdays are awesome. Happy birthday!
