    I know these aren't out yet. But from what you've seen on photos, do you think Takara Primus and Unicron are worth getting if you already have the Hasbro ones?

    If Unicron and Primus' colors really don't do it for you, maybe. They seem overpriced to me, especially considering the molds have gone for $5 before.

    I'm not sure because I don't have Unicron in my hands yet. However, as the G1-JUNKIE... you would be doing a disservice to your name by skipping on a G1 Accurate Unicron:lol . I had mine on Preorder since day 1 so i'll be sure to take a million photos once it shows up. Can't wait!!!!! This Month i hope

    As far as Primus goes... I just don't like the idea of Cybertron being a Transformer. No Comic influence in my house!:2c: 


    Besides, I know you got money, Galaxy shuttle wasn't cheap:D

    I have both Armada Unicron and C-00 Primus and I think both Takara campaign figures are worth getting. I like the recolors on both figures and both would make for nice displays.

    I am getting Unicron & I think the movie accurate coloring and new head make it worth while.

    I'd like to see more extensive photos of both of them before I decide anything. For now, it's cool to see them painted up, but a shame that it took so long and a shame that it costs so much.

    Yes for both for me. But even I think Primus is some what redundant. So I imagine a lot of people will be skipping on him.

    Where could have you found both of these figures for $5? I lucked out one time and got a Primus at Target on clearance after X-mas for $12. I have both Armada and Energon Unicrons and GalaxyForce Primus. I'm probably going to sell my Armada version and keep the Energon one. Primus will also be kept because the GalaxyForce G1 type box is so cool. Don't forget the 2010 box for Unicron goes with the 2010 Primus box when you put them side by side, almost like a puzzle. I'm getting both.:dj

    They're pretty rad, but not for that money.

    I would like to have Unicron, but I already have the Armada version, so I'm not paying for another one. If I hadn't him, I'd buy the new version, though.
    Indeed, the same goes for Primus: In this case I could not buy it the first time it was released, so I ordered him. He should arrive next month...

    If you have the money to throw down on them, I say yes. The new colors and head on Unicron look nice, and I for one like the new Primus. They'll serve as "Classics" Unicron and Primus for the purposes of my collection.

    Definitely no for Primus, as that colour scheme actually looks worse than the original. Unicron is tempting, but it's far too expensive and I'm happy with the original release.

    If you already one of the previous versions, then I have to go with 'no, not worth it.'
