    Is it worth enough to look for this? Most stores that I've been has only Cybertron Primus w/o the Unicron head. Just wondering before I spend gas just to look for this kind.

    I just ordered him from HTS. What I payed for shipping is what I would have payed for tax and gas money. Shipping for him only came to about $7, which was suprising with the big box. My only complaint is waiting for him to arrive, which he still hasnt.

    I would say yes. The sculpt job on the exposed details is very well done.

    i say no, it's just a little trinket. Adds nothing to the primus figure itself. You will more then likely leave it or put it back in the box, or it will sit and gather dust. Personally, I also do not think it looks all that great. It's just "OK" to me.

    It's not that worthwhile, but it's still kind of neat to have. If you're having trouble finding one wait for about week and then hit your local Targets. They resetting next weekend or so and will have their Primuses on the shelves.

    Another vote for its a "nice but not necessary". I saw this in person the other day and wile the Unicron head is cool I dont think its worth trying to move heaven and earth to get one. I would be inclined to maybe wait a wile longer and see if he pops up. If not I cant imagine regular Primus selling out any time soon at that price point. But ya I would say wait for now see if he shows, if not just go for the regular.

    Yeah, I'm neither here nor there on the Unicron head. It just doesn't really serve much of a purpose. Primus is the toy I'm really interested in.

    Well I have 2 Targets and 1 Kmart to go today. Yesterday I went to 2 Walmarts, 2 TRU, and 1 Target and only one TRU got Primus w/o Unicron head. I want to avoid KMart since they are overpriced (I got only enough money to get Primus and 2.5 "Sigma 6 Firebat)

    Well got back an hour ago. The Kmart doesn't have anything and out of the 2 Targets I went today, only one Target has Primus w/o head though I finally found the minicon pack Sureshock & Backblast that I need.

    Went to the TRU near my house that I went to yesterday. Yesterday I found 2 Primus w/o Unicron head. I hid one of them behind some Megaman boxes, hoping that they'll restock some Primus w/ head . When I went today, I only saw Starscream and no Primus. Thankfully the one I hid is still there, which I bought.

    Gonna try to control myself not to open it. Gonna go back there on Friday to see if they put out Primus and hopefull having the Unicron head with it.

    The head is really just for absolute completists who totally have to have a G1 movie/universe tie. (And in some ways, they deserve it, we've waited forever for this figure and it's well earned.)

    I do agree though, it's just a dust collector. It does absolutely nothing, and unless you're really hard up for some G1 nostalgia, you're missing out on Primus joy now while you wait for something "better".

    Well it's Friday. Went back at TRU. They only have Starscream so decided to open him up. I'm really impressed.

    I'm still searching for one with the head. My local TRU has had Primus twice now, and all of them have been without the head. I think the head looks cool and it's a nice nod to the original G1 movie
