    I don't really like it all that much. I'd only get it for the 'It's rare' factor.

    i saw a thread somewhere on here where in toronto, just in the past few weeks they were giving these out for a cheap price of i think 20 dollars. it was a promotion i believe with GM. i'm not sure what the prices are for these before the promotion in toronto was, but a GOOD cHUNK of people got em. peeps were taking their gf's and what not to pick up a second. the value of these should be cheaper now i think. at least for now.

    I saw it on ebay (im 12) and asked my mom. I got it for straight a's all year..

    great figure, worth the 128 dollar price tag (not cheap on the bay or anywhere else)

    his car is the embodiment of Robots in disguise because its a very average car. The robot mode is beefy and awesome looking. The head is pure win.
    My 2nd fave tf... The leg transformation is really cool BTW :) 

    the rear doors and the trunk rotate back so the trunk is now under the roof (rear window, and rear seat window) and then the door folds back over.

    Really posable legs, he can do a sumo pose thanks for the legs rotating and the feet can go side to side.the arms have a double hinge elbow too.

    Overall a 10/10 for me...

    so you know that was a LONG time ago. Also after that short bit, it was made as a thing in china, test drive one and get this thing for free. (test drive aveo in china) also GM had it on it store for like 2 days. Sold out real fast, BUT it came from Europe and the shipping/customs made is about 125 for most people in the states...

    These things were limited to 2000 pieces and the are not cheap. Got mine 128 sealed and shipped... but now they are going for more than that open....

    *edit* not as long as i thought and sorry if i came across as an ass....

    I think it's a cool toy in both modes, but NOT worth the huge price. It's not really any better than your typical Deluxe figure.

    I've got one on the way but I notice he comes without a weapon. What are people using for him to go attack some Decepticons?

    I got him for $100. As far as deluxes go, it's a pretty average toy. The aforementioned "it's rare" factor is pretty cool though, and makes it well worth more than $10, though I'm not sure about 10 times that though. I will feel really silly if it's rereleased/redecoed as a mainline figure down the road.
