    Haven't seen this listed anywhere, but it just turned up on Entertainment Earth overnight, apparently they're re-issuing the 2006 set:

    Transformers Optimus Prime vs. Megatron 2-Pack - HASBRO - Transformers - Transformers at Entertainment Earth

    The email I got from them says they're not getting wide retail release, but I doubt Hasbro would go through the trouble of making a set like this for an online exclusive. Seems like it'd be silly to do OP & Megs this way.

    Edit: its listed on BBTS as well: http://www.bigbadtoystore.com/bbts/product.aspx?product=HAS19992&mode=retail

    WHY.

    I could sort of understand if they turn out to be new decos, or the premium decos, but... not the normal ones. No. NO.

    NO

    Handy for folks who missed out on the Classics release all those years ago. The Megs mould is quite good, and Prime has a decent robot mode. I just wonder if people see Prime's admittedly bad vehicle mode and write both moulds off.

    My only question is both sites have it listed as an online exclusive, but that seems really stupid on Hasbro's part. Why wouldn't they do this as a mass-retail piece?

    That Megatron would be cool if he had actually and right arm. And that Optimus isn't well either...

    It could be so easy: remold Megatron to have two real arms and an arm cannon, make him gray and Prime could just be the new Generations Prime in G1 colors, instead of G2.


    Would be an instant buy.


    And they could easily serve as earth modes for my WFC Prime and (soon to buy) WFC Megatron.

    If any Classics needs a reissue, it's Ramjet. See the eBay prices these days? Yeesh!

    The Megs needs a fixed re-release.

    Or preferably a re-release of combat hero in Green.

    Even if you did miss out on these initially, they hung around at Dollar General Stores right up until last year. Seriously, the one down the street from me finally clearanced the sets out at $8 apiece...of course this was long, long after I bought my set for full retail.

    Yep, it has been up there for awhile.... although it might be a 'shared' exclusive... I was thinking it might be the next 'wave' of the 2-pack sets to take the place of the battle in space set.

    TF: Prime Starscream, Bumblebee, and Arcee were listed as Generations figures because they were at one point planned as a 'preview' wave, so perhaps the deluxe Megatron & Prime molds would have been a preview 2-pack to go along with that. With those plans changed to push them all back to an October release, maybe Hasbro felt the need to quickly fill that theoretical 2-pack hole with just a re-release of this 2-pack....?
