Oh, and it looks absolutely cool too. *wub*
So i'd say Crab Crusher. :-)

Ok, here's some help:
Crab Crusher is a huge and cool submarine with a nasty crab, combining playability, cool parts and ermmm... coolness. :-$
Building Crane... you don't have a city layout, right ? X-D
Now you should know. :-D

I think the reason I still like the crane alot even when the score is 6 to 1 is because I already have a bunch of submarine type sets but nothing like the crane. So it's all up to the crab with isn't the main part of the set, and is it's size makes it fairly unrealistic which I frequently tend to wine about.

If you don't have a layout yet - well, you'll need some Construction sets to build it, won't you? So, there's the logical reason ;-) And you can "size it down" easily and make a smaller crane which still looks good. I liked the set so much I bought 3. For USD 50 I wouldn't hesitate, here in Europe it's around EUR 50 (on sale) and EUR 60+ (SRP/RRP).
That was your mayor's impartial point of view... *cough*
You'd buy EB's favorite 2006 City set, too, according to the current poll results ;-)
The Crab Crusher is the best of AR so far, I think, and if you happen to have 4888 there might be possibilities to "merge" that sub with the Crusher sub.
I'd say it depends on your priority: start a layout, or expand your divers stuff. But the crane looks pretty impressive on a shelf, too, if you don't have time to build your city yet.
I wonder who made that terrific picture of the crane...........

Well, might as well reveal my pick. Although I love the crab, I voted for crane. While the Crab is absolutely incredible, that crane is a marvel to behold. To hold it in person would be an even greater pleasure! I'm not much of a fan of either line, but I tell ya, that crane is breathtaking in both size and construction! I only wish I had that kind of cash to spare! :-D

I'm a crabby guy
Thank you to everyone who participated in my humble little thread. I bought the crane last weekend (Along with Airplane Mechanic, $5 Aqua Raider, and street sweeper, which are also coincidentaly primarily yellow) but I did not open it yet.
