    So here's the situation. I don't collect the Prime/FE/RID line but I absolutely love the Vehicon design - specifically the car. Obviously finding one at retail is tough and since I live in Canada we haven't even seen it here. So now I'm thinking I should just spend the $30 and grab the AM version. However, for the same price I could get the Jet Vehicon.

    Like I said, I'd much rather have the car but I feel like it would be a waste to spend $30 and NOT get the Jet even though I like it less. Any thoughts? Maybe I should just grab it and hope that one day I'll find the car version at retail?

    $60 just seems a little too much for 2 deluxe figures. But you're probably right...

    Both figures are awesome and look great next to each other.

    I like the purple color scheme better, and since both robot modes are very nice, I'd go for the jet

    I have both (the PRID Car Vehicon and the AM Jet Vehicon). Honestly, I'd have to suggest them both. I thought I'd regret getting the Jet Vehicon from BBTS for 40 bucks, but I honestly can't imagine my Prime collection without him.

    To be perfectly honest, I'd suggest getting all three Vehicon molds; AM Jet Vehicon, PRID Vehicon, and FE Vehicon. That way, you'd have a little troop of Vehicons who all have their own distinctive molds.

    I'd say go to ebay and get the PRID Vehicon. AM Vehicon comes with an oversized weapon while the PRID one comes with an accurate one.

    Jet Vehicon is really awesome as well and I would say get that if you can but get the classic first.

    I recommend the Jet Vehicon. It will hold you off for now. Then when you stumble across one in retail, go for that as well at MSRP.

    Get the Jet version ( it still a car.....sorta). The bot mode looks kickass with his wings an sharper edges.

    Agreed. Then if you find a good deal on the FE one, jump on that too. If you don't, then hope that you can nab one down the line.

    I mean, if its something you want, you'll end up with it regardless, so there's little sense holding off from a good deal because you'll not only lose money when you spend more later, but you'll also end up waiting longer.

    Get both AM14 and AM16. I don't think you will regret getting the AM versions.

    You can choose any of these, or all of them:
    TFP FE
    TFP RID
    TFP AM14
    TFP AM16

    You might also want the EZ/Cyberverse ones, and even the Kreons, pretty nifty too.

    Given your post, I'd recommend simply getting the vehicle version of the Arms Micron Vehicon.

    I love the Vehicon design but wasn't that fussed about paying the high prices that a Deluxe one carries, so I picked up a Cyberverse one and was instantly surprised at how much fun it was to play with and transform the little guy. He's dirt cheap as well!

    Either of the Arms Micron ones, because they're FUN.
