    If let's say you were to choose between these 2 figures.
    Which one will you guys choose ?

    Prime is by far the better figure of the two. More poseable, more detailed and a tad bigger.

    I like that Megatron and I'm one of the few people displaying him in vehicle mode, but he's nothing to write home about when compared to Prime.

    This is really not a contest. Leader Prime now and forever more. An amazing figure. AMAZING figure. Premium megs is ok and a great deco but nothing compared to leader Prime

    I wish to get buster prime but the price is way too high. The cost is about $360 :( 

    Well I guess I will be getting the normal version.

    You may be able to find the HFTD leader prime with the hooks and no face mask for close to retail and you may find him in stock at some retailers like TRU who hate clearance.

    Let me play devil's advocate so old Megs has at least some support. With the new Striker and Jetwing Optimi you could actually go for one of those instead of the ROTF one. Meanwhile Megatron has some really easy mods you can do to make him arguably the best leader version of Movie Megatron.

    IMO, RotF Prime is one of the best Transformers toys ever created. It's really no contest.

    I have Premium Megatron, and he has some cool gimmicks. But, he's too short, weird and kibbly in both robot and alt mode to be much of a contender for anything.

    If you can only have one, Prime. If you plan on getting both a Megatron and Optimus prime at some point then go for Megatron now.

    Overall toy wise, it's Prime hands down.

    ROTF Prime, no doubt! Try pickin' up a ROTF HFTD Prime from Marshall's or TJ Maxx for $25.

    Toy wise, ROTF Prime is miles above Megs. Availability wise, I would take Megatron first, there might not be a chance that you will see him again. And with Striker, Jetwing prime
    and HFTD Prime all available right now, I don't see a reason for him to be top priority.

    The answer is always ROTF Leader Prime.

    Go for the 'Prime' choice.

    I think a comparison between RotF Leader Megs and TFTM Leader Prime would be a tougher choice.

    I'm in the minority, but I love my premium leader Megatron and would get him first. He's my favorite movie character and this is his most powerful form.

    Are you interested in selling your premium Megatron?
