    Hey all. I'm kinda driving myself insane here because I decided I didnt want to get the classics deluxe Prime vs Megatron pack as I heard you can get them seperate on their own cards. I've managed to locate megatron but I'm trying to find prime. Can anyone help me out and tell me any likely places (other than ebay) that might sell him. All help is highly appreciated.

    When did that happen? I just picked up the Hero for the Ages two-pack with FAB Prime and Classics Deluxe Prime so I could get that mould dammit.

    I'm not sure how long they've had their own cards but I have seen them about. They seem to be like gold dust though. If ush come to shove I'l just have to get the ultimate battle pack so I have optimus prime.

    I know what you're talking about! That's how I got my Classics Deluxe Prime and Megatron. I got them at Toys 'R Us.. for 14 euro's each. I wasn't too interested in the 2-pack because oddly enough it came out after the single carded ones.

    So maybe TRU is an option for you?

    I haven't seen Prime on his own at all (not that I consider that a great loss :p ), but I did spot the Deluxe Megs in Forbidden Planet a couple of months back. Obviously that would've been imported though. I've never seen either at general retail here.

    While you're at it, try to find the carded Skywarp.

    Do we have any confirmation that he was ever released?

    Only the Megatron from the two pack came out. I never heard of the Prime coming out on his own.

    My local Toys R Us has stopped doing all classics and commemorative issues. They only seem to do the live action movie ones at the moment.

    Yeah I've been in touch with him over it. But 144 is a little too much considering I just got the megatron for a third of that price. I may twist my arm and get it in the end.

    Ebay:
    I have been looking for these for a while. They were not released in America. I have the two pack, But I want these two MOSC.

    Good luck finding them, and if you come across extra, LMK, I am willing to make a deal.

    BTW- the guy selling them for 144 is insane, but I offered $50 and he countered with $80. Just an FYI.

    Cerberus - since you're in the UK - check Forbidden Planet. Mine had loads of these a month or so back, if I'd known they were rare I'd have had them all!!! lol

    That ebay price is laughable. The mold is BARELY worth $10, I wouldn't pay a cent over that.

    Those prices are insane, And it's really intereseting to see why most of us never heard of the single release before.
