    Honestly with many stores having it between 50-60 its well worth that price. While the super mode has crap articulation the figure in hand looks awesome and is great fun.

    Hey if you cant afford than i would wait. This toy seems everywhere in mass quantities so i do not think it would be a risk to wait. Hell my tru had like 5-6 cases of this toy on the top shelf in the tf aisle.

    I liked TRU's $48 price but it wasn't available online.

    So I'm still waiting.

    The vanilla Prime figure is awesome, though wonky looking. The trailer is badass and the combined mode is incredibly imposing.

    Get it before you regret it.

    I bought the SDCC one for the Trailer Stickers and the Packaging.

    I would buy another if I saw it for $20

    but at 20$ I'd buy it just for the mechtech, and if not, for kibbles for custom.

    If he goes for $20 I honestly think I'd get 2. One for the armor pieces.

    But for the current price I just look at my Jetfire and I think I can hold on.

    Had one and sold it, so, no, I'm not waiting.

    It is a very cool piece jsut too large for me to display very easily.

    My kid got it as a present. Now that I know what it can do, I would've bought it full price.

    I don't have a specific desire for it, but at $20 or less I'd probably buy it on principle. I would speculate that he'll go for $35 when he hits the discount chains, so at that point I'll have a decision.

    I'd buy it for $20 and still hate myself for doing so.

    I'd actually like to try combining this Prime figure with Jetfire. In the movie scale charts Prime is supposed to grow considerably in size when combined.

    Then I'd use the trailer with the ROTF leader so he looks better next to the HA figures. Using the trailer to get around the scale issue.
