    The two pack is leader class Galaxy Force Optimus and Voyager Class Crumplezone... a $49.99 figure and a $19.99 figure.

    The five pack is just five deluxes...

    Which one looks like the better deal to you?

    Also, clicking on the links is your friend. :)

    Cybertron Optimus Prime in the Galaxy Force redeco and Crumplezone in original colors. Great molds if you don't have them.

    That's not bad at all, so you get a great Leader toy for $3 cheaper than retail and a gree Voyager figure, or buy all four Armada remolds and get a brand new Optimus repaint free. Nice deals if you don't have the figures already.

    the 5 pack has some great figs in it too, I just can't justify another beny prime repaint that looks like all the rest, they say exclusive but I don't see the difference, maybe I'm blind

    We'll see about that Sam's Club exclusive. My mom has a card, perhaps it's time to use it. I was going to save up for Black Friday....hmmm.....

    Technically you don't need a card, but you get penalized. You can either sign up for the yearly membership and get the member price or you can get a one-day pass and pay a 10% charge on whatever you buy. 10% would only be about another $4, so it could be worse.

    Or you could order it through someone who has a Sam's card. Might incur shipping costs that way though.

    Personally, I think it's worth it to sign up for the yearly membership. It's only $40 for a membership per family, and the savings on gas alone could pay for your membership.

    Galaxy Force Prime used to be in dollar stores for $20 or less not too long ago.

    That is incorrect. Crumplezone was a Voyager. Hasbro's website is wrong about that one.

    mmmmmm, repacked old stock (that Prime set would have been a lot more appealing if it was Dark Crumplezone)

    I wish there was a Sam's Club in Nova Scotia, (or even in Canada) it would picking up 5 deluxe figures for a good price.

    I would really be interested in that Deluxe sized Prime if anyone is planning on that set for sure and is not interested in him...
