    So I just found these guys 50% off at Target for $15.00. It seems like a sweet deal, but I just wanted to know if these guys are good figures or not to buy. They certainly look nicer than their first versions (the bike and other plane).

    They were $15?

    Darn. Kinda wish I bought them.

    Personally, I spend $15 on a different figure.

    They were originally $30-$40, but some places have started putting them on clearance for $15. I got mine at a local Target for that price.

    If you like the marvel crossover figures, go for it. $15 for the two of them is nice.

    Yeah, they're decent. Well worth $15.

    Just don't bother combining them.

    I've been wondering this too. I don't have any Marvel crossover figures yet partially because they are too expensive and I'm afraid of it being like the Star Wars Crossovers. Hoever, if this one gets cheap enough, are they good figures?

    If you can get past the rediculously stupid idea of Marvel Superheroes needing giant transformable robot suits (except Iron Man, 'cause that's probably what he'd do anyways at some point eventually), the figures are for the most part decent transformers.

    I only have the original Wolverine figure, but it's a pretty nice figure for $15. I made it into a custom Decepticon simply to get rid of the Wolverine in him (and that alt. mode was just BEGGING to be caked with mud!). Most of the crossovers make great custom fodder. Heck, there's a guy who made a Roadbuster conversion kit for the Captain America crossover, and I'm thinking about taking the Hulk bulldozer and making a concept Animated Bonecrusher.

    The quality of the Marvel Crossovers seems to be much better than the Star Wars ones. I've got Venom and he is all sorts of awesome.

    I don't have the 2-pack but just to addess the question of quality, IMO the Marvel Crossoves are lightyears aead of the Star Wars ones. Wolverine, Hulk tank and Venom are my faves. Captain America, Spiderman Bike and Human Torch are middle of the road and Iron Man jet and Thor are pretty 'meh'.

    Mr. S:

    I got 'em (paid $15).

    They're really 'Marvel-y'...bold colors, bold but not stylized shapes. I like the look, and they're detailed, but it's not quite the same as any Transformer aesthetic. Put them in a comic page, and they'd fit right in.

    They're both cool. Spider-Man would almost make a better Deadpool, but maybe I just like Deadpool. :D 

    Engineering is decent, but a little quirky. The Galoob crew does some things different from the TF crew. Many elements transform in ways that you wouldn't expect, but they work well.

    My perceptions may be a bit skewed, because I brought back MP Skywarp on the same trip. :D 

    I think they're worth $15.

    My advice:
    never pass up a Transformer on sale for half price
