    After seeing the Vehicons in TransFormers: Prime I suddenly want to start army building with them, but I don't know how to start going about this. Does anybody have any suggestions on how I should go about doing this cheaply? I don't want to spend that much money on them:wink:  Luckily I have about a month to save up for the Prime toys, but still...

    Start buying Vehicons, and stop when you think you've had enough.

    Pretty much what's been said. Buy as many as you feel comfortable with, and boom, you're ready.

    Just buy a ton of Vehicons to start with.

    If at some point they ever release a repaint of a character *cough*Starscream*cough* you could also buy a bunch of that repaint and say they're drones.

    I might buy two or three of them at most. I wouldn't consider that true "army" building, but it's more of one figure than I would normally buy. I'm hoping they create the flying and mining style drone's too. If they do, I think I'll buy two of each at the most...maybe three of the car drone's...cause they're seen the most often...

    Actually being able to buy them in the shops may aid you on your quest!

    But yeah, I reckon I'll buy at least two. They look cool.

    as long as you buy a bunch, you do it right lol. Assuming they're easy to find, I'll probably end up buying a new one every time i go to the store and they don't hae anything else I don't have/want. Thats why I have 5 Scourges lol

    Army building can get old fast so don't buy too, too many of them until you figure out if you are a real army builder type.

    I plan on buying 6 Cyberverse Vehicon cars and 6 Vehicon Cybertrion jets; assuming they make Cyberverse versions. Also I might wait until I know about the Cyberverse repaints and slowly buy Vehicons over a few months, Basically I want a lot diverse repaints of the Cyberverse Vehicons.

    Yes! I was hoping they would have the jet Vehicons, maybe they'll be called Arialcons. Oh, and I should have been more clear in my first post; I meant to say, how should I go about this cheaply. Sorry for the confusion. I plan to get about ten of each type, maybe more, but I don't want to spend that much money on them. Buy-one-get-one-free sales don't happen very often with TransFormers so my plan A is out of the question.:wink:  On the bright side though, if it's true that the Prime toys are coming out in November they'll show up around my birthday so maybe I'll get some that way.:wink:

    THIS. Oh, Steve...

    They already announced/showed prototypes of multiple Cyberverse figures/sets, including Arcee, Wheeljack, and Ironhide (inspired by the movie version).
