    I see my local CVS currently selling all the small bots to form MicroMaster Superion and I was wondering if you think he is worth picking up? They are being sold for $2.65 each. What do you think?

    $5 at Big Lots for a KO if you're unsure. :)

    think of it more as a reissue sixwing, which is an expensive japanese exclusive, and it sure is.

    At $2.65 apiece, sure. At $5 apiece or more, not so much.

    I paid $3.99 for each at Big Lots this spring and I feel he was worth what I paid. It's a G1 mold and a G1 homage all in one! Go for it!

    Got every version of this mold--original, reissue, white, this one--and the Universe Superion is definitely my favorite deco. Highly, highly recommended.

    He's a lot of fun. The six jets are great fun, the combined mode even more so. He's probably the best of the Micromaster six combiners.

    I'd pay $10 a piece if I could find them anywhere OTHER than ebay!

    Just a note, the $5 at Big Lots for the knockoff is for the whole set, not each piece :) 

    I would have been willing to buy the official Hasbro for say $2 each but not $4 each.

    I am still seeing the Hasbro ones at Big Lots around here for the $4 each figure.

    I have all the re-issue micromasters, save the chase versions.

    Sixbuilder, sixliner, sixtrain, sixwing, sixturbo, and chase sixbuilder (devestator deco), along with Hasbro's superion, defensor, and devestator.

    Sixwing and Superion are my favorite mold, and incidentally of all the incarnations of Superion, this is my favorite, I found, G1, G2 and Energon versions lacking in stability and porportion.

    Edit: actually I don't have the Hasbro Railracer.... May need to recify that.
