    I was in Dollar General in Towanda, PA the other day and came across this:

    They had about four of them on the shelf. These two figures may not be the greatest, but if anyone needed one or the other, Dollar General is where to get em.

    I'm kinda tempted to get it, just so I can have a G1 Prime. Any other suggestions on what to get?

    It's G1-ish. It's a lot more G1 than any other Prime I have (looks over to single RTS Prime).

    Optimus looks gorgeous (read: horrible) in that stock picture.

    In my opinion, I'd say that I hated that set of optimus and megatron is because my optimus's chest was really loose and my megatron's gun would just flop around.

    Because no one really gives a flop about this thing on its third time out. The set was solicited last summer by the online shops, I had presumed that like other 2010 and on "side market" stuff, the set would have given a Generations look.

    Thing was available in 2008 into early 2010 in package dress that tied into the Universe line. Pretty sure it got slapped in both Universe 1 AND universe 2 packaging...

    That Prime's truck mode is just... weird.

    I've never been a fan of G2 Megatron either. Pass.

    I remember getting this set on clearance at Gordman's a few years ago for $5.00.There's no way I would pay $20.00 for it.
