    I was out today and found both Universe Inferno and Leo Prime. I had only enough for one so I picked Inferno. I'm wondering if I made the right decision.

    Yes, you did. The Leo Breaker mold isn't as good as the new Inferno mold.

    Agree.

    The Leobreaker mold works best as an arm for Cybertron Optimus Prime, and even then, that's debatable. He's cool, but Inferno is MUCH cooler.

    Inferno is the right choice.

    No, you did not make the right decision. You made the right, and most EXCELLENT decision. Leo is fine, but to me, doesn't look right with the colors. And it is too bad they removed the electronics in him, which makes it less of a value to me. Inferno is a new mold filled with so much goodness, your decision was spot on excellent and right. I know how you feel. Been there myself. Inferno also has a much more satisfying transformation and he fits in better with the rest of the Universe line. If you like Leo, there's always next time. I don't think it will fly off the shelves like Inferno seems to be doing. You should feel good, man. :)

    Hm. What a coincidence. I was in the same situation.

    I got both. :p 

    But I'd recommend Inferno. He's just a better toy. Nothing that good about Prime, except for the VERY badass remolded head.

    See, the Cavs need a guy like you in the clutch.
    You faced a dilemma and still squeezed out a score on this.

    Inferno is plastic crack with plastic crystal meth sprinkles on top.

    You done good, boyo. real good.

    So it's like LeBron keeping the ball with 2 seconds left as opposed to dishing it and hoping for the best?

    I picked up inferno when this happened to me. Although now I have spent the last few months trying to find leo convoy.
