So, in typical noob fashion, I'm starting a thread about an upcoming purchase decision! I'm currently debating between a number of items: - Perfect Effect Bruticus and Computron Upgrade kits - MMC Mirage (Alternate version) - last but not least, MMC Overlord I'm pondering this because I have a 10% coupon from A3U that expires at the end of the month. I've just had to renew my car insurance this month, so things are a bit tighter. With the PE kits, they're harder to get and there's not a lot of them in circulation locally. Surprisingly, I've come to really appreciate the Combiner Wars line and currently have most of the traditional G1 combiners in the line (Superion, Devy, Menasor, Computron, Defensor) and I've almost completed Bruticus. So getting these upgrade kits would allow me to finish with that line. With MMC Mirage, I actually like the Alternate colour, and I missed out on it the first time around by sitting on my hands for too long. I like the look, but my main reservation is that these popular Autobots (Mirage, Jazz, and Hound) are all but guaranteed to be made by Takara somewhere down the road. Lastly, the MMC Overlord is new and exciting. I dig the design, but I don't have a lot of other Reformatted figures to go with it, so it's not a top priority like my MP collection. I feel I may be able to get my hands on one in the secondary market for a better price if I waited. So, given these considerations, how would you guys choose?
