    Only interested in the Motormaster. Got the TC, Jazz isn't different enough to justify owning, and I detest the RTS Laser Prime mold.

    Optimus looks too fancy in those new colors. I can't wait to see when somebody plugs him into battle tanker.

    Really? It looks more squat than the original head and the "horns" look a bit different too.

    Are we sure these are two two-packs and not one four-pack?

    BOOO. I love Motormaster, but I hate when they redeco Optimus into him. We already have more than enough "Evil Optimus Primes" without lumping Motormaster in there. Motormaster turns into a truck. Similarities end there. I do think it's interesting that they're calling him Motormaster, it was my understanding that there was some problem with using that name.. but maybe I'm misremembering something.

    I mean, not that it really matters, I don't collect legends so I'll get over it like I got over it when they did it with Animated (which I also never really got in to). I'm just saying.. I hate that.

    The rest of this set is curious.. anyone know if these decos on Prime and Jazz homage something in specific? is Optimus maybe a nod to Powered Convoy? I guess Jazz is supposed to be G2 Jazz, despite having almost no similarity to him other than being Jazz.


    What's this "we" stuff? OP says the listing for Thailand.

    How do you figure? This guy has a different deco and a different head.

    My impression was one four pack.

    He's probably thinking that because of the whole Blue and Red thing.

    Pretty sure that's the angle of the picture more than anything.
