    Saw these on the top shelf (where they put the overstock) at the yorba linda Ca. target They had the Prime/bonecrusher and Megatron/jazz sets. They weren't down for sale and my camera phone couldnt get a good shot cuz they were up so high. All I can say is the Prime and megs just look horrible. They dont look like repaints, they look like they were left out in the sun for too long or somebody through them in the oven just long enough to tint them.

    So many other things they could have done with these. Final Battle Jazz with premium paint, Battle damaged Bonecrusher, anything but this. Hell even if they didnt change anything but added in a little clip on sword for prime i would have bought it. For $24 it just sucks

    Unfortunate, that they just keep pumping out these mediocre repaints and pairing them up with other figures so that they can keep saying "Hey look, new toy!" Eh, I've been done with the movie toys for a very long time.

    I find it strange that people complain this version of Prime is ugly when the deco is more movie-accurate than all versions released before. But I agree, Megatron looks terrible.

    It would be awesome if they named them as a series, "Doomed Battles".

    Nothing I could ever force myself to buy, since all of the good originals/repaints have been done. If they want to sells us on repaints, they should try more G1 homages.

    A red Ironhide, maybe? A more G1 looking Prime, perhaps? I'd get neither personally.

    I guess that's all that is left, since they have G1 Jazz, Starscream, and sort of Ratchet repaints.

    Nasty repaints! Megs is interesting but not that interesting. I only have the Leader versions of him.

    I'd buy Megs in a heartbeat if he didn't come with FB Jazz.

    Lord more movie toys? They STILL dominate the stores. We Don't need any more! These will take up space and block new stuff from coming out I think :(

    Give me the last three Target scouts (Reverb, Gunbarrel and Backtrack) instead of these.

    Okay so the movie repaint 2-pack costs $6 less than the Cybertron repaint 2-pack. The prices of these 2-packs seem random.

    /agree

    Hopefully they didn't make too many of these battle sets and they will clear out fast to make room.
