    My money's on another Wal-Mart exclusive, since they already have the "Evolution of a Hero" battle damaged BB set coming.

    Mmm, milking. I can't even think of the last time I saw a mold reused this much in such a short amount of time.

    So, including the 'G1' inspired version... this will make four versions of this mold. It's not that we've never seen a mold reused so many times, but never so close to one another. Shame, they're going to kill the mold and only one of the figures is really worth buying...

    That sure does look like the usual crappy Hasbro battle damage.

    So there is Robovision, the regular version, the Bumblebee 2 pack, the G1 version, and this one.


    I havent seen a mold used this many times since Beast Wars Dinobot.

    For being a mold used 4 times in the same line, I've liked every single one of them so far. Not liked enough to buy any of them, but, I'm not going to complaing about "over-usage of a mold".

    Fifth release (Vgr, RV, BD, G1, BB&OP 2pak), fourth deco. I would actually be happy if it was Magnus.

    They should just paint it black already!

    You can never go wrong with that.

    All I gotta say is he better be under $20 to warrant a fourth purchase.

    And this time, they are all the same figure. At least Dinobot was Grimlock twice. Speaking of which, why all the pure Prime repaints? I might have picked up a Nemesis Prime, or even a Magnus. But one Voyager Prime is enough for me.

    That looks like an awful repaint/kitbash more so than an official release..Does anyone have a link to pics of the gen-1 version yet? I actually kinda think I'd pass on that Prime...In theory anyways.

    Not usually a fan of "battle damage" but I kind of like the truck mode on this one... has a nice "mad max" badass sort of vibe.

    Robot mode isn't so hot though.

    Wow, that's some pretty awesome battle damage, there. Still, not different enough to pick up unless it comes with another figure that I really want. Robovision Prime & First Strike Prime will be the versions of this mold that'll be mine.

    Wow, they're using this a lot. Too bad it's such a subpar mold...
