    Its not the worst figure but its not the best. He has some nice novelty value and if he is like $5 i would say go for it.

    In all honesty if you are thinking that hard and long about a 5-10$ toy and even have to post on forum about it, you should probably spend the money elsewhere.

    I saw it and didn't bother with it. No interest.

    I say your hesitation is your answer not to buy. (It's often mine.) If you wanted it, you woulda grabbed it.

    Agreed. If you're not sure over a $5 figure, it's usually a good reason to pass. I've passed on him many times.

    :thumb  Good posting.

    A lot of people on the forum have a hard time being a collector instead of a consumer. Buying any figure based solely on the fact that it is A) A Transformers branded toy or B) Reduced to clearance pricing is always a bad idea.

    Buy toys because you like them, not because it was five bucks or because you have the other 7 so you may as well get this one too. Use TFW's Feedback forum or watch some of the reviews on youtube to make a decision.

    Also just to throw it out there, no don't buy Insecticon because the figure is a turd.

    They retailed at what, $8-9?

    If you can't say that $5 is enough of a deal to buy it, then don't.
