    The price on this is a rip-off. I predict clearance sales 3 months from now!

    Way too pricey for me to even consider it, and then of course there's those smokestacks.:lol

    I might get him, though I most likely won't in the end, as there are plenty more TF's I'm more interested in getting. Though there's a good chance I'll break down and buy him anyways. I'm not a big fan of G1, but another Prime would be nice for my collection, and he'd make for a nice contrast with most of my collection. He can hang out with my key chain Bumblebee and Cliffjumper in my "Others" display, while his trailer goes in a box (not sure if I'll display roller or not). On a side note, does anybody consider Roller a separate character? and/or count him in your collection count on his own?

    Edit: iheartarcee, a pictorial review would be AWESOME (video "reviews" SUCK).

    Edit2: No offense, but none of these complaints about him being "overpriced" make any sense to me. If it was just Prime, than yeah, I'd agree, but you're also getting a DVD, a comic book, and a voice box (aka, you are getting your money's worth).

    Cool, this'll be the last TF purchase I make before next year, I think.

    Not gonna get. The Canadian version is gonna be a ripoff, what with the missing DVD (and going off the Universe 2-pack, it won't surprise me if the comic is also absent).

    This means he'll probably show up in Jersey about a month from now.
