    $30 is a solid price for it IMO. I picked up my first one for $30, and then another for $21 down here. Not the best version of him, but it is still decent if you don't already have one, or two yet. Also may depend how much they are shelf-warming up there in the Great White North.

    I don't know..... I wouldn't speaking from past experience. I brought the original TRU Optimus Prime and it just feels inferior to any of the Takara Reissues...

    Huge Missiles....
    No Spring launching Trailer....
    Plus, that one is the weird light red and blue.....

    find the encore, spend the extra 30 bucks and be happy! Hell, if you want my old TRU prime just PM me and we can work out a deal. I'd like to trade that out for the encore release.

    Sounds like a pretty swell deal.

    I'd get it. I wouldn't have paid 69.99 for it like they wanted here, although.

    You should pick one up if you want a G1 Prime.

    I got one, opened it. I think it's excellent for $30. I never had a G1 Prime before. Some people really hate the lighter red though, so if you don't mind that then by all means get it.

    He's definitely worth $30, I'd go for it.

    Go for it. Prime is one of the most iconic Transformer toys, every fan should have at least one.

    Also, since I am not rich and can't afford everything, i was kinda thinking about getting this or HA Bumblebee instead. Any opinions?

    If you don't mind the differences between him and (for instance) Encore Prime, I'd bag everyone's favourite big truck, especially at that price.

    HA BB is awesome, but he's likely to be around for a while.
