    Not really. BBTS called them shared exclusives. The scouts are at a Grocery chain in Canada, I just picked up Undermine. And that pack was at Canadian tire last X-mas.

    Yeah people have been posting about it for a little while. At around $12.99 it's not a bad deal, even for a couple slightly subpar molds.

    Much like the cybertron scouts, probably not.

    Picked it up yesterday.

    The Prime really is a crappy figure... it's a laughable attempt at copying what the much larger MP-01 Prime does, but in a deluxe scale. Alt mode is crap. Bot mode is messy too. The wheels that rotate to form his mid-section keep untabbing so he's got gaps outside the abdomen/grill area... the spinner gimmick is soooo lose his torso can't be posed nicely.

    The Megatron figure's actually pretty nice I think... barring the gun arm. Really hate when a figure has a permanent gun arm instead of a hand.

    I don't mind that Prime mold...I have the United version and it's pretty good, no issues with the wheels on the sides or the loose spinner gimmick. The truck mode isn't great but oh well.

    Then again, once I got my Henkei Prime, I never looked back :D

    Barring tolerances of injection molded plastic leading to gaps. The spinning locks. You pull the tab out and it clicks and holds the thing in place.

    I picked up the one with the DVD as few years back. Worst take on G1 Prime and Megatron ever.

    RE: The wheels - Never had a problem with it untabbing. Maybe you just got a bad one?

    RE: The spinning gimmick - just pull the button/lever all the way out - it clicks in place and the torso locks. You can even lock it mid-twist for some additional posing possibilities.

    I grabbed this set on a whim at Marshall's not long ago, and while they're still some of the more lackluster molds, I enjoy them. Besides, Optimus' tommy gun goes perfectly with the Black/Sky Shadow mold. SPACE GANGSTER!

    Yes, they are. Almost every release of that mold has put the feet on backwards. Thankfully, it's a simple fix, since his legs are solely held together with screws.

    my Prime from that set fell apart at the waist and I still haven't put it back together again. I think I lost a piece of him somewhere.

    I would get this set for Megatron alone.
