    At that price point, IDK. I got him on sale and he is a great figure. I absolutely love the paint scheme on this guy and the mold isn't half bad on its own.

    Id get him.

    No. Not a terrible figure, but not something that's worth that sort of money.

    If you are a member of the club, there is a sale going on right now that gets you both Timelines Airazor and Astrotrain for $65, which is $22 less than the $87 price point of just Astrotrain. He has a great paintjob and an original headsculpt which IMO is better than that silly Armada Jetfire headsculpt, I'd say go for it as long as he's still on sale.

    That mold's not worth $80. There's a reason TFCC still has those around after 3 years.

    The paint scheme is better than Armada Jetfire and the new head and repainted Minicons are a nice touch, but the mold isn't that good at all. It had no leg articulation to speak of so posing is an issue. If that's not a deal beaker for you, I'd say go ahead and get it. I'm sure it's a good display piece if thats what you're looking for.

    Never cared for him, I've passed on him all these years and will continue to do so. The simple fact TFCC still has this intended limited run exclusive says quite a bit, imo.

    I am planning on buying this soon, as its considered $32.50 with that special price.

    Since it is an exclusive, it there an edition run to these?
