    Why are they reusing the crap mold from the Classics two-pack? That thing belongs in a furnace, not back on the shelves.

    Cool idea, but not something I will buy. Always nice to see some love for G1 Prime.
    I wonder if a similar Megatron set will follow.

    I think this also marks the first time a TF character has been packed with... himself.

    Ugh..... FAB figure, packed with the Worst Prime Ever? (I'm not sure if that's his official name, but it SHOULD be.) No thanks.

    Now if it were Voyager Movie Prime packed with cab-only G1 Prime.... THERE is a winning combination!

    (Anyone else think they have a lot of unsold 2-pack Primes they're trying to clear out?)

    Looks like they've used the worst version for old and new PRIME to make this set. The ones they can't shift elsewhere?

    Im new to the boards as far as writing on them but I cant stay silent on this one. That mold (from the Classics Two Pack) is one of the most flimsy pieces of crap I have ever had the misfortune of handling. Its not worth the cost of the twist ties. Hasbro should be ashamed to call anything like that Prime!

    Pretty much. I don't even understand why they released that 2 pack in the first place. And judging by the amount of true Classics Primes left on the shelf, they could cut the price and packed that one into a $30 set.

    Probably one of the few things I will not buy.

    That is not 1984 Prime, that's crappy classics 2-pack Prime. Nice try.

    Man those movie figures just look terrible. It seems by prediction froma year ago was correct. Much like Beast Machines the designs just did not lend themself to toy form. oh well at least Blackout and Jazz look ok.
