What to get a soon to be 6 year old for his birthday. I need profesional opinions...

My daughter who is in kindergarden brought home an invitation to a kids birthday party that is in her class.
I called and RSVPd to it because she "really really really really REALLY!!!" wanted to go to the party. I asked the kids mother what kind of toys he like and she said that I didn't need to bring anything.
My budget is pretty tight however being the big geek who can't disappoint a kid on his birthday.
I asked my daughter what he likes. She told me he's always wearing TF, and spongebob shirts.
So me being the hardcore tf collector I am, I think I can hook the kid up.
Now here is where I need the help.
The kid is turning 6, and I've got plenty of in box stuff that is just eating space.
here is the question.
Do you think he'd like an
A 2007 movie allspark blue Deluxe new Cammero BumbleBee (target exclusive I picked up for a song on clearance) or B the reveal the shield redco of classic's BumbleBee?
C go to walmart and grab 1 autobot and 1 decpitcon legends class figure off the shelve and give them to him. (So if he has a brother will be able to 'fight' each other)
I'm leaning towards that reveal the shield BumbleBee, but I want an opinion other than my own here. The party is at 2 in the afternoon tomorrow

ZacWilliam, Really the first 2 are whats important but 3 isn't a bad thing either IMO.
Or the proverbial ailerons of Titanium Moosebots?

its how I got Prime and Megatron back in '84.
I'm afraid I don't know the kids folks quite that well.
I'd offer up the 2007 movie redco of ultra red alert if I did

You're far too young to be this bitter and angry at the world....
I'm reading that with Roy's voice. Heck, I read everything you post in a laconic Irish accent.

that aside -> lol yeah just put aside the suggested kidnapping
as a collector I'd suggest away from a Bumblebee of any sort, because I'm tired of seeing him everywhere... but as somebody who remembers being six, the one I can see everywhere is the one I want.
So i vote rts Bee...

I'm not a fan of voting on peoples posts. it just seems very passive aggressive to click 'down vote' and not add anything to the thread. and up votes are exactly the same. to my mind the whole point of a forum is discussion and being able to just easily agree or disagree takes the discussion out of the equation.
