    AHHHH!....so Optimus prime Megatron ultimate battle is shelf warming around these parts.
    I had and sold that Megatron mold, i didn't hate it like others...it was ok.
    I've never have that Prime. And even thou I don't really think much of that truck mode. His robot mode (from what i can see) Is the closest on mode toy I've ever see.
    Other than a MP, who towers over my other G1 figures.

    Should I buy it? Forget it? At what price point would you buy it?

    {EDIT/ADD-ON:}
    So if anyone wants one it's on clearance for 14.99 CAD plus 12 Cad ship to where ever.

    I'm still sitting on the fence about this....

    I bought it for 10 bucks. Still felt like I got ripped off. Those molds are horrible.

    I've never even seen this toy. I think I personally would pick it up just for the pseudo-G2 Megatron.

    Optimus's vehicle mode is crap :lol  But, in my opinion he makes up for it in robot mode. He looks great and has some nice articulation.

    I don't own Megatron, but I have messed around with him before. He isn't bad except for that spinning... thing on his arm.

    If I where you, i would buy it. Mostly for Optimus.

    I'd spend $15, which is where Dollar General has been marking for a couple years now.

    (btw, I find it highly unlikely that you are seeing the original "Ultimate Battle" set, with the DVD. That was release during Classics and was pretty solidly cleared out thanks to the first movie. You are probably seeing the non-DVD repackage or the recent "Generations" style packaging)

    For $15, I'd buy the hell out of that.

    The Megatron is poop, but I rather like the Optimus from the set personally. The alt mode is pretty bad, but the robot mode is a very nice updated G1 form.

    That megatron isn't that bad. If you can get it cheap, he's worth it.

    Again, check Dollar General, they've been getting the non-DVD version of the set pretty reliably since 2007

    if you get it, make sure you pull the tab out far enough to lock him in place so he doesn't rotate. I had him for a couple of years before I knew you could lock optimus and keep him from spinning. I hated it until I found that out..

    I'd never even heard of Dollar General. Closest one is 3 hours away in Bakersfield, CA. Next closest is in another state. Their online store doesn't carry TFs.

    Chances of me driving 181.9 miles to buy a $10 toy: 0.00%

    There is nothing wrong with that Megatron, aside from his right arm having no elbow or hand.

    That Optimus Prime is garbage.

    Worth owning for the Megatron, and Optimus comes with an okay gun.

    I think it's his bulging eyes that ruin it for me. It looks like he's just been given a wedgie. And his large blue eyes and blue head kinda meld into one. His robot mode is decent enough through, even if his alt mode is pretty poor. I certainly liked the figure much more once I realised I could lock his waist-spinning gimmick.
    The Megatron I really like. If he didn't have that spinny-hand crap he'd be one of my favourites. Damn play gimmicks ballsing up otherwise decent figures.
