    The third party battle axe that was made for the cybertronian optimus prime, is he worth the high price? It's just an axe, but yet they charge 16 bucks for it and then 8 dollars to ship it. It's really cool and I would love to support it, but it's just so darn expensive for a weapon. What's the opinion from those who have it? is it worth it? thanks!

    for a third party weapon, it is really cheap compared to other weapons.

    though shipping makes it a tad more expensive, it is a VERY good accessory

    my advice:buy it along with something else you want to save that shipping cost, i did that (got fansproject warcry) and was totally satistifed

    Buy it from BBTS and add it to a Pile of Loot. It's an awesome accessory and adding it to an ongoing Pol makes the cost of shipping virtually nonexistent.

    I feel that it was worth it to give WFC OP more character.

    I just bought a DotM Fireburst Prime and used his axe. Not really accurate, but it does the trick.

    That axe was my very first 3rd party item and I loved it. It's what got me hooked on 3rd party stuff.

    What is this axe based on again? Did he use it in the game?






    How big is this one? Is it larger then the TAW Swords that go for the same price?

    TAW-01 TAW God Sword - Classics Convoy Version - Transformers Classics Accessories

    Although I've bought 5 TAW swords (one accidentally) so I'm not one that's a good judge of price. . .

    The axe is based on his melee weapon from the game. I believe the intro trailer for the game gives you a good look at it.

    well given the description it seems to be meant for RID Omega Prime and the various Fort max versions ( Fort,Brave,Grand).

    Even so i feel the price is too high. That said once i get an RID Optimus prime to combines with my RID UM I'll be mighty tempted yo get one as i would think that the official versions of the Matrix Blade would likely cost even more.

    the god sword is much larger then the TAW swords. It's fortress maximus size and is a replica from the original japanese fortress maximus release. The long handle comes with the God Fire Convoy set originally. It can fetch hefty prices online.

    $20 for a weapon is pretty much highway robery no matter how good it looks. that's two official dlx toys. even at $5, that's not a good deal. if my friend buys this item, i'd troll him to no end for being a dumbass.

    for me no, especially, if i weigh what else i other toys i can buy with the money i spend on it. really its not worth it.

    I really like the Ax as well. A video game accurate Transformer. Who would have thunk? :)
