    How dare you ask such foolish questions?! :p  lol

    Well, so far I'm loving each figure I get and they have just the right mix of freshness and a hint of nostalgia I can't get over them. Pick up a couple deluxes and you'll see

    The figures I have right now (Grimlock, Prowl & Blackarachnia) are all awesome. The others I've seen look just as good too. The only figures I'm not getting are ones that I'm passing on as they have better versions coming out (Voyager Bulkhead & Megatron for the Leaders to be exact).

    Not really. All figures have a worth to them. Really, it boils down to questions like "which Op you like better?" or "are the bumper battlers any good?".

    Personally, the only figure I really see no point in getting for me is Voyager Megs. Hell, even the Bumper Battlers look kinda cool.

    So far Elite Guard BB. Why? Because it's just a repaint. The repaint of LD? Yeah I'll get him, but that's because he has a different gimmick. As long as there is a new gimmick Hasbro has me sold.

    Megatron from the "Battle Begins" two-pack sucks. His articulation is good, but his head sucks, his cannon looks strange, and he basically transforms into nothing. But the Optimus from the two-pack is just incredible, so you're forced to get it anyway :p 

    Also, whose bright idea was it to crap-up these toys with crappy paint app battle damage? It looks like they have a skin disease or something.

    Is the battle damage just paint? Or is it a molded detail as well?

    That Supreme Class Optimus Prime looks like a huge waste of money.

    I don't see how. I can see why it may not appeal to everyone and while I, myself have not decided if I will purchase it or willing to pay the maximum amount for it (i.e., wait for clearence) I don't see how it is a waste of money anymore than all TFs are.

    Just paint. I've been toying with getting a second to take the damage off and give him Cybertron Mode's head for maximum show accuracy.

    If the damage isn't molded on, and the line is successful as it seems like it will be, it would not surprise me if we get a single-packed non-battle damage version.

    I'm sure that Optimus will get released in Japan without the battle damage when Animated is released there.

    TFS ARENT A WASTE OF MONEY YOU TAKE THAT BACK

    Seriously though, Roll Out Command Optimus just looks like another Ultimate Bumblebee to me. If they were gonna make a Supreme Class Optimus figure, they should've made a proper one.

    How is it another Ultimate BBB? He's extremely show accurate! It's like MP Animated Prime!
