    $10? I saw him at tjmaxx and am up in the air on him ONLY because he is an autobot, BUT I really like the mold and this figure looks great,so is he worth it?

    I think he is. Can't really go wrong. I got extras in case anyone else needs one.

    GET IT NOW.

    It'll probably be gone by the time you get back to the store.

    Pick him up, and if you wind up not liking him you can sell him for the same price or maybe more, even opened.

    I really like Grapple, but I'm an old guy who mainly buys for G1 nostalgia.

    If you REALLY like the mold and have a good chance at scoring one at or around $10, then I don't see the issue here.

    Get him...if he was the usual $30 CAD I would still buy him on impulse. Fortunately I find my Grapple by accident during a sale so I got it for $20.

    I paid £20 for Grappel here in the UK, and I think he's more than worth it. For $10, he is an absolute steal!

    well the issue is pretty dumb but I only buy decepticons,and my dumb ass thought for some odd reason he was a decepticon,then I saw the dreaded autobot symbol and was like NOOOOOOOOOO,but now I regret not buying him because that mold is sick,the other issue minor as it may be is I usually dont buy above deluxe class but again this grapple is really cool,why must he be an autobot!!!:(

    The mold alone is worth $20, it's easily one of the best Voyagers we've had in a LONG while. The fact Hasbro went to the trouble of retooling a lot of the figure for "Grappel" really makes him seem different and unique from Inferno.

    For $10 it's a steal that I highly recomend getting. Like others have said, you should have no problem getting your money back + a little extra if you don't want it, as many people are still looking for him.

    In that case, perhaps you can buy him and then trade him on the boards for an RtS Lugnut, who is also a voyager but one of the few Decepticons in the RtS line. Plus, at $10, you're paying just below current MSRP prices for Deluxes, so you're getting more for less really.

    Totally worth it. In 2-3 years when he's disappeared for good people who missed out will be scouring the junkion exchange for an rts grappel. I did the same for universe inferno. Such a great mold.

    $10 for RTS Grapple? I'd buy 2! :D 
    Totally worth it and if you end up not liking him, you won't have any trouble getting rid of him. Many Classics collectors are looking for one, myself included.

    I would have to disagree with that.

    INFERNO is easily one of the best voyager. Grapple, is not. They retooled everything to be worse. Wrist Panel limited. Hands don't hold 5mm weapons.

    Only problem I see is that you may buy him and decide he needs some autobot buddies.

    ok,here is the other problem,I found a g2 megatron 08 legends at rite aide for $8.99,its either grapple or legends megs,and I know I know the whole voyager vs. legends class is prolly a given to most but the g2 megs legends figure is almost obsolete now.

    Is grapple worth $10? I nominate this for dumbest thread of the week award. Only 2 months ago this figure was going for $70 easily... and I expect it to go back to that value after all the tj maxx ones dry up.

    Not to mention the figure kicks ass. What fun is a horde of Decepticons with no enemies to crush?
