    For those who haven't got Optimash Prime yet, he's 25% off at BBTS. With my store credit, I wound up paying $3 for him. Saw a few older TF items on the sale list as well, but Optimash was the only movie item.

    Dunno why he carried Optimash, its an adult-collector-aimed store, and I didn't think Optimash would appeal to collectors.

    I wonder when he'll include a Battle Unicorn free with each order. He's been sitting on those things now for almost 8 years.

    Actually, it's a 50% off sale, listed as "25 Items 50%+ Off!". So, even better. Shame there's nothing in there that I just gotta have, though. :tongue:

    I'd have liked Optimash cheap, but international shipping would kill the deal for me.

    They should at leat have one less, I bought Battle Unicorn from them a while ago :lol 

    Those Telemocha figures are great deal indeed.

    I have one. He's sitting on a shelf with Darth Tater, Spud Trooper, Artoo Potatoo, and Spider-Spud. I dunno why, but I like the little tater tots. Prolly give 'em to my kids someday, though.

    That's probably not a bad idea. Or just do a 'buy $50, get a Transformers figure FREE' and get rid of 'em that way.

    Battle Unicorn was one of the last Beast Machines toys. It almost didn't get released, so Joel bought a small production run of them. Unfortunately that was way more than demand for the little guy.

    To its credit, Battle Unicorn is a decent toy - a few parts pop off easily, but he is a decent little TF, a horse one at that, and he has a huge axe / has the medieval warrior look working nicely for him. Nowhere near as bad as some from that line.

    Not a bad sale... I might have to place an order. I'd probably even get a Battle Unicorn for that price. :)

    He was incredibly rare upon release, thanks to retailers underordering the lousy BM line, which in fandom translates to "he must be beyond awesome". He commanded quite a high price back in 2001. Joel, seeing this, commissioned an entire second run of the figure exclusively to BBTS. Once people saw he was available, more and more people bought him and word got out on what a lousy figure it actually is. Demand justifiably plummeted and here we are.

    I had one and gladly sold it. Horrible figure. Not the worst in the line however, that honor is shared by Deluxe Thrust and any of the beasts.

    The set of 8 Japanese BW toys is oddly tempting to me, even though I have little reason to own them.

    I remember everybody going ape shit when this figure was announced/listed, before pictures of it surfaced. Lot of people thought it was misspelled, was suppose to be Battle UnicROn. BBTS run has a 2 at the end of the barcode to distinguish it from the original retail production.

    I don't have any desire for them, but such a nice price makes my purchase trigger finger itchy.
