    Huh.

    So they used that panel from War Within Vol 1 #5 and Crotchatron. Surprising.

    Wow, this is awesome. Here's to hoping we get more G1 characters done this way.

    "Never before seen", eh?

    I have this sneaky feeling the character art is actually the ones shown right on the box back there, which sure ain't "never before seen". :)

    Not bad for those who haven't got a reissue Prime yet (is there anyone!?!) and doesn't mind about the smokestacks.

    Me, I'll stick to my encore goodness.

    I'll get one for my Prime collection, but I still might pass. I love the anime face Ipod prime to much to need another.

    I really wish they had done the first FOUR issues of the comic, so it at least has an ending (not a happy ending, but an ending nonetheless). But I guess having Spider-Man would have been a problem... heh.

    I'm looking forward to this set. I don't have a G1 Prime for some reason. so this looks like a good opportunity. Plus, The DVD and comic will be welcome additions to my collection.

    Eh, as I've said before, I think I'll just get one to keep MISB. The $70 price, plus the fact that I own an Encore version (with the long smokestacks) is keeping me from getting one to open. Maybe if it goes on clearance, but otherwise one will make for a neat display still in the box.

    I definitely agree. $70 is waaaaaaaaay too much for this figure. Is it even die cast? At least with New Year's Convoy you got Action Master Convoy to go with it
