    We'd heard about this before, but as far as I remember this is the first set of pics we've seen of them so far.
    Gallery Link.
    I may pick up one or two to keep MISC, seeing as how I have 'em all from their original releases anyway. Still, its a good chance to pick the molds up if you missed out on them before.

    This just hasn't been a great week for the two Universe completists out there.

    Doubt it, seeing as past repackages only included a few of the Energon figures during that run.

    Maybe this is the line that will have a Primus repaint probably the Golden Age of Cybertron. Plus the Universe line sold large figures for $19.99 so maybe Primus will be $24.99 retail.

    How can you compare retail price on Universe Ultras with a repaint of a Supreme figure? A repaint that, in Universe's current state, has zero chance of existing? These are just repackaged Cybertron toys getting cleared out. NEW Universe stuff won't be making an appearance until the Aveo promotion, followed by "Classics 2.0" next year.

    Leader Class RID Optimus Prime was repainted in the Universe line and sold at discount for $19.99. There are Leader Class figures in the Ultra Class of the Universe line. There are no Supreme Class figures yet so I estimated that it will sell for $24.99 if they put one in the line. Only some Universe Ultras were Ultras in their original release/line.

    I'm especially interested to see how the deluxe Prime and Megs will be packaged, since they've only appeared in box up to this point (Prime w/ Megs, and Prime in the Leader for the Ages 2-pack with FAB Prime).

    Something tells me they'll be in bot mode... Prime's alt mode isn't exactly a selling point. :lol 

    EDIT: Actually, scratch that - looks like they might be bundled together again:

    RID Prime is not comparable to the modern-day Leader Class. He only cost $20 originally as well. Same with the Magnus repaint. NO Leader Class figure exists in Universe.

    You're wrong! RID Optimus Prime & RID Scourge were the first figures I purchased when I started collecting. I purchase them from TRU at retail and they were at least $29.99 each. RID Optimus Prime is comparable to "modern-day Leader Class". In super mode he is larger than all of the movie leaders. He is larger than Energon and Cybertron Prime. His combination into Omega Prime is bigger than Sonic Conoy and Wing Convoy. How can you say they are not comparable. You are wrong.
