    So I got the Classics Jetfire/Grimlock two-pack the other day. Quick thoughts: Jetfire is awesome, Grimlock is okay-ish.

    I also noticed the barcode states the two-pack's official name as "JETFIRE and GRIMLOCK TWIN PACK".

    Which got me wondering, what's the official name of the Optimus Prime/Ultra Magnus two-pack that got released alongside it?

    Does anyone own that two-pack and still has the packaging?

    Please do not give me eBay links. I do not want to buy this set, I'm only looking for the official name.

    I have the packaging still. Unfortunately it's in Canada and I'm overseas until next weekend. If nobody replies and you still want to know, PM me next weekend. Cheers!

    If I'm not wrong it was an Asian only release item...

    It definitely wasn't sold in the States. Neither was the Jetfire/Grimlock set, for that matter.

    I wouldn't be surprised if it was around $30. At the time I got mine on ebay new for $50-55 after City Commander (1st edition) and DIA Commander was released for 4-5 months already.

    As far as I can recall, I got mine on clearance at around USD $57 more or less.

    Probably because the two items were very plentiful in North America (the Magnus & Skywarp pack was released in England at least too) and Magnus was a Target Exclusive. I don't think Hasbro was likely to release him elsewhere when he was an exclusive at specific store.
