    I'd personally skip Citizen Stack as I feel Takara's MP Ultra Magnus was a better figure. With the rumours of an MP Megatron 2.0, you might do well to just wait it out. Even if you still prefer the 3P offerings, I'd think prices will likely drop further down the road. I personally still find Apollyon to be the most visually appealing between the three. Mightron seems to have a fun transformation while Despotron seems to really tuck away all the kibble cleanly. However, there's something about Despotron's aesthetics that just doesn't quite do it for me.

    Well said, if the 200$ is hard to come by, save it for one that you absolutely know you have to have, even if you got to pay a little more.

    It is pretty rare for me to have $200 guys,and I appreciate all the advice,but I may wait and see what I want to do,whether I get Despotron or Mightron and what else. Also to the guy that suggested I go back to the Riverboat Casino and bet it all on black I will keep that in mind,but I think I would rather spend that money on something else instead of giving it back to the Casino,but I appreciate the idea :lol .

    Hey guys, after thinking about it overnight I think I have narrowed it down to these few figures,and just these nothing else.So in your opinion which 2 do you think I should get?

    DX9 D-09 Mightron $130
    DX9 War In Pocket X13 Mightron $53
    UT-Y04 Allen $120
    FP Warbot Revolver $60
    and KFC Citizen Stack $95


    Also I thought about Despotron and even tho he is more Toy Accurate I think Mightron is like Heinz 57 Sauce with a mix of both Toy & Toon Accuracy,and would probably fit in better with all my Masterpieces post MP10.I am not saying he is a total pass but I just wanna see how Mightron looks in my collection before I pass judgement.

    I agree with this.

    Or, get an extra 15$ and get Allen and Stack. But i prefer Allen and Mightron.

    Now, I have Revolver and like him, and not currently planing to replace him with the MMC offering, but, i had to do alot of tightening up of all his joints, and he isnt for everyone, but i still like him and wouldnt sell him.

    So, Allen and Revolver will meet your budget... and leave you an extra 20$ for hookers or casinos, or best one yet, Iron Factory Arcee ;)

    Well, to be honest... I'm not very keen on your updated list... I would condier, hunting down MP Magnus, before Citizen Stack, and wait until all the prototypes of Not-Springer are released before ordering "Allen".
    About Mightron... I have considered all 4 options... (Mightron, Despotron, NuTakara-Megatron, and Appolyon). So far, I think, that Apollyon still looks the best from the front...overall the best option is Despotron (no robotmode-kibble), and the best Alt-mode is Mightron... At leat, as far as a Megatron goes, you have to consider, which mode you mostly care about. Apollyon for pure Robot-mode; Mightron for Alt-mode, or Despotron for best overall.
    ... well that's my opinion... I, too have about 200 bucks to spent on TFs... And even though I had more than two months to thionk about possible purchases... I'm still undecided.

    Apollyon wins alt mode by default because he's the only one with a stock and silencer. TT could change that, but till it happens, it's no better than MP Mirage in invisible mode.
