    I've been tempted by those Dinobot minicons, but I can't make myself pull the trigger at $20. :(

    I would like to see pics of the Packaging on the Optimus Vs Megatron.

    I see the version with the DVD and another Version without DVD all the time.

    Wonder if it has Generations Style Packaging?

    I'll be the first to stand up and defend that Classics Optimus Prime, but I simply can't understand the logic of re-releasing a figure that failed to sell at regular retail and I think ended up at dollar stores in the US?

    Same. A normal 3-pack costs as much as a Scout, so a 4-pack should be what, $10? Maybe as much as a deluxe at most. But $20? I don't need G1 color schemes that badly.

    If you've got a Big Lots nearby, they have the Scouts, for those of you that might not want the full set from BBTS.

    $8.80 each.

    Sorry for the double post, but I got a reply to the packaging question.

    Sorta sounds like it could be the Generations-style packaging, doesn't it?

    UPDATE: They put the pic of the packaging up...definitely Generations-style.

    That Optimus will work with the new FP set right?

    BTW, besides BBTS, where is the Optimus/Megatron set exclusive for?

    I really want those mini-cons, and yes I can afford to throw around $20 plus shipping, but $20 plus shipping for four mini-cons? That's steep. Now I remember why I didn't pre-order.

    They keep calling these a "shared exclusive", but does anyone know who else is sharing?
