    So I allot myself a certain amount of money every 6-or-so months for a 3rd Party purchase.

    Problem is that so much cool stuff came out since I bought Mebsuta and I'm having the worst time trying to figure out what I want.

    My budget is $160 and I've been eyeing:

    Perfect Effect's Guardian

    Fansproject's Columpio

    Mech Ideas' Bluster & Trench

    MakeToy's Trash-Talk and Cogwheel

    Please help me cheapen the hobby.

    Coluuuuuumpio!!! No questions about it, you must have it, two thumbs way up on this one!!! Pls, it will come with a nice targetmaster. I think you can also get Trash Talk too with your budget.

    That said, a lot of people like Warden. You could go that way, and you will have a superior robot, but the alt mode / transformation isn't as good. I personally prefer the look of Warden over Guardian. Another option is MMC Hexatron at 140$.

    Anyways, which ever way you go, you going to be happy, so good choices buddy, and good luck. -> Coluuuuuumpio!!!!!

    Trashtalk and Cogwheel are some of the best figures I own. They are extremely impressive. Sludge hype is high right now so a lot of people will likely vote that way but I'd always recommend Trashtalk.

    i would get TT and CW because theyre the oldest and will be harder to obtain later. but i think you should get what you want the most.

    there's so many variables about you and your collection. its hard to make a call.

    the only one of those i even have is trash talk and i just bought him yesterday because i saw that the same company will be making a tailgate soon.

    i have warden and i like him just great, but i don't have an attachment to brave at all. do you have warden? i guess if you don't care about the character and only the look of the bot get Guardian.

    I'm getting the larger MP styled Ft dinobots so I'm not getting Fps, but id only want it if i was going to go ahead and get them all anyways.

    i have zero interest in bluster and trench.

    so i guess id say get guardian.
