    I am planning to by a Prime Deluxe class Vehicon soon, but I can decide which one to get. The 1st Edition version or the Robots in Disguise version.

    After carefully comparing/contrasting both these figures in their respective galleries on TFW2005, I have listed there pros and cons below:

    First Edition

    Pros:
    1) Larger alternate mode than RiD version
    2) Bulkier robot mode than RiD version

    Cons:
    1) More kibble in the back of robot mode
    2) Smaller weapon than RiD version

    RiD

    Pros:
    1) Darker colored alternate mode than First Edition version
    2) Slimmer robot mode than First Edition version
    3) Larger weapon than First Edition version
    4) Less kibble in robot mode

    Cons:
    1) Smaller alternate mode than First Edition version

    Despite this, I would like your vote and opinion about which one is better.

    RiD. No ugly back kibble, cheaper, cheaper/easier to troopbuild, weapon looks better and has no tolerance issues.

    The only things the First Edition has going for it is a glossier alt mode and more paint. And the latter is something you can easily fix yourself.

    The FE is to the RID as the legion is to the FE.

    The RID in my opinion is a better show accurate figure, I skipped the hunt for the FE version of this figure in hopes of the RID one being "good enough", after seeing pics I find it exceeded my expectations greatly.

    I prefer the first edition, although I don't own it. I like the color better, I like that it doesnt have silver paint under the chest window, I like the head better, and I like that the head isn't sunken down like on the RID release. I also like the smaller gun for the first edition figure.

    That being said, I do not ever see myself owning it due to it's price.

    Clearly FE voters have no taste or maybe blind. :D

    Yeah, I do like the colors of the FE a lot more. But for every other aspect, I vote RiD. Which feels nice, because it's pretty much the one case where I feel like the mainstream audience (in this country) actually got the better TFP figure rather than some distant runner-up.

    PRiD. The paint and car mode might look a bit better with FE... but the kibbly bot mode and well, it's cost/rarity make it not worth the slightly better deco.

    Now if I could find the PRiD Vehicon... or two... I'd be happy. =(
