    Since I don't have quite as much disposable income disposable income as I'd like, I've had to settle for the Transformers: Prime Cyberverse toys. I would still really like to get the real toys at some point. How about you? What figures have you bought?

    The Cyberverse are real toys. And in at least the case of Megatron, I think the Cyberverse is a better toy and better representation of the character than the PRiD.

    I broke down and bought some of the main line toys. And I have all of the Cyberverses so far except Arcee, which I finally had to order online, and Vehicon, which I may skip.

    Overall, and this feels weird to say, in terms of bang for the buck, I'm kind of more happy with the Cyberverses. One example being Ratchet, who to me, was a pretty disappointing Deluxe. I don't like the transformation, and I don't like the way he pegs together. But the Cyberverse Ratchet was perfectly decent for a Legion. If I could only keep one of the two toys, I think I'd keep the Cyberverse version.

    I know the grass always seems greener on the other side of the fence... I mean, that's a big part of what finally made me cave and pick up some of the Deluxes after I had originally decided not to. But don't feel too bad if you end up sticking to the Cyberverse line. They are pretty worthy toys themselves. Especially the Commanders.

    Cyberverse are as real as the main line. IMO cyberverse is better with no stupid gimmicks like crazy head reveals and pointless amounts of clear plastic. I got all of the wave 1 legions and just need starscream to finish commanders. I also have wheeljack and soundwave out of the main line.

    Mainline Wheeljack, Soundwave, Knockout, Hot Shot and Megatron (should have a Ratchet and Vehicon in hand very soon)

    Also, of the PRiD figures I picked up, Ratchet, Megatron, Wheeljack, Soundwave, and Optimus... Soundwave is the only one I've been super impressed by and would recommend to any fan of the show.

    Optimus is...okay if you can't get the FE.

    The others, I kind of wish I'd saved my money on.


    I'm planning to paint my Megatron to make him look better, as I've seen others do. I also am considering taking out a couple pins to remove his back kibble to make him look better in robot mode, since I think his vehicle mode is garbage and badly-implemented anyway. He'll be my first Action Master.

    On the other hand, I'll probably keep on picking up all (or nearly all) of whatever TFP Cyberverse figures they come out with. Those, I've been very happy with, pretty much across the board.

    I have all Cyberverse (thats out so far), FE Optimus, RID Optimus, Wheeljack and Soundwave.

    But I said Cyberverse because thats pretty much all I'm going to get from the 'mainline', for me its Cyberverse all the way from now on.
