Does anyone own them? If you do could post some size comparison pics?
shots of my prime and megatron shelf. see them compared to a wide varity of things.
old picture of them with the rest of the original classics line:
Does anyone know if this a good way to get your first prime and megatron
They are not particularly good figures, there are far better Primes out there.
henkei or classics voyagers
Animated Deluxe Cybertron Prime is a MUCH better Prime. If you want a classics version go for the voyagers. If you get this as your first prime, you'll be dissapointed.
The Megatron toy is ok at best. Optimus sucks. If you can find the pair for $15 or less (BigLots used to, and may still have them around that price) and you really want them for your collection, I say go for it. However, if you can afford it, and can justify the rediculous price for a deluxe, Go with the regular Deluxe Prime. As for Megs, well, the closest thing to a good classics version is the nerf gun looking thing. You can even get a decent K.O. for pretty cheap at KOToys.com (sorry, I can't post the link)
I had both, but now I only have Optimus, my megatron broke and I lost him, and my Optimus's torso swings and is loose
If your short on cash, then this is a good first option considering they were 18 bucks at the dollar store. Optimus Truck mode sucks a$%. But his robot mode is decent. And I like both modes for Megatron.
If you have a little cash, get classics voyager prime. I got mine for around 40 in february. Animated Voyager Prime is also good and you can still find him in store for 20.
As far as Megatrons go, Animated Leader Meg's is very cool but will set you back 40+ if you can't find him on sale anywhere.
Hope this helps.
Yeah, the 2 pack classics prim and megs aren't the greatest. I second what pretty much everyone is saying. If you can, get Classics or Henkei Voyager Prime. Henkei Voyager Megs is very nice too, that one doesn't look like a nerf gun.
You mean the spinny gimmick thing? You can relock the waist if you pull the button back out until it clicks. Unless it's loose because you've broken it.
I love em both, and I may be the only person on the planet to think so.
they are pretty decent. the megatron is quite awesome, and the optimus has a GREAT robot mode, just don't transform it, the truck mode sucks. highly recommended set
I liked the Optimus more once I found I could relock the waist. Not fond of his bug eyes. The alt mode was kinda bad too. Megatron would be one of my fave figures if he didn't have the gimmy spinny hand thing.
What you'll want to get are these two:
A little pricier, but worth it. Go with ordering the Henkeis online (unless you have an impost shop you know of), as they're cheaper than the Classics releases now.
That deluxe Prime is really only good for this-
And Megatron, well... I prefer G1 Megatron over G2. Nerf Gun >>> Tank.
They're OK. My Prime actually broke. I pressed the button to make his top body spin and the mechanism broke and wouldn't lock into place.
