    I currently have a Voyager Animated Prime. My budget is very limited, and I cannot afford to spend too much. I would love a Battle Begins axe for him, but at the same time, I was thinking that money could be spent buying a decent scout or deluxe. I am not interested in the BB figure itself, I just want the axe.

    What are your suggestions? Is there anywhere that sells repros? Anyone willing to sell me one for cheap? Thanks!

    The Battle Begins Optimus Prime mold is an awesome figure, but if you just want the axe then it's probably not worth it. Personally, I think it is a much better figure than the Voyager mold (and the axe works great with the Voyager figure as well).

    i did, but i use the BB figure for my "out of scale team" so it was worth it for me, but if you are just getting the axe and nothing else, i would say don't bother

    Hmm, maybe I shouldn't get it after all, I don't have any figures that are in-scale with Deluxe Prime, so that makes it somewhat undesired. Darn axe...haha.

    Check out the Junkion forum and start a thread in the wanted section. A lot of people have the Animated 2-pack Prime by itself. You can save yourself some money that way instead of buying the 2-pack, which is almost impossible to find for less than $20 (S&H included).

    Okay, thanks for your help guys. One last thing, if you were to buy just the axe, what should the maximum price be that you'll spend? Thanks
