    Ooh, it's the really cool one with black instead of grey that I wish I'd got. Damn you, Canada!

    Seems lazy to me. They didn't even bother to repaint the molds.

    How much?

    And where?

    I don't have either of these molds, and I would love the GF Prime.

    i'm remembering how incredibly long both of these shelfwarmed (pretty sure the Crumplezone remold/deco came and went and original Crumplezones still kept shelves toasty) and thinking "repackaged old stock". i have a hard time believing they'd re-run these without at least a color change...

    Not interested. I'm looking for the Roadbuster and Dirge twin pack though. That is a must have for me.

    Wow. That's really random. But pretty cool for folks who don't have the GF repaint of the Prime. The colors work out well for that toy.

    If it was Dark Crumplezone then I woulda been excited, but this, this is meh.

    Ok, it's a bit cooler then meh, but that's simply because of the "WTF" factor of doubling up these two molds in a 2 pack :lol

    That IMHO is junk.......along with pretty much everything in the Cybertron line. After they gave us great quality stuff like Classics, Animated, and Movie figures why the hell would they dig that garbage up?

    It's like giving someone filet mignon and then expecting them to like a Big Mac just as much.

    The cyber key looks very nice. I never got that version though I have the GF and the Cybertron "grey" one. I'm not so sure on Crumplezone though. Great toy but I honestly don't need a third of the guy. This will be an expensive little set.

    I own both of them and you won't really be disappointed by the figures, (who did'nt shelfwarm nearly as badly as quickmix, metroplex, and the king of shelfwarming: mudflap). Repackaged these are not cool for me.

    Now armada overload though. I want to get that universe re-release as I hav'ent found one with the missles online for a good price. This is why I want one:

    I agree. I got Crumplezone on sale because of his shelf-warming, he was the only Cybertron toy left to go on clearance, and didn't sell for a month when I got him on super-clearance. So, I would totally get this pack if it had DC because I don't have Dark Crumplezone, who is far more awesome, anyway.

    I don't have GF Prime either, finding him at Family Dollar for 20 bucks was a one-time only sort of thing, then I never saw him again when I went back to get him a week later. (Kinda surprised, Family Dollar isn't known for selling their toys fast or in small quantities) Did get Metroplex tho.

    So, maybe if I didn't have Crumplezone, and maybe if it was cheap enough (GF Prime is real cheap most of the time), and maybe if I lived in Canada, I might get him. Maybe.
