    If so what are your thoughts?

    By the pictures it looks cooler than the Deluxe.

    It was nice seeing the "Decepticon" Flip-n-Change in person at Target. This was the first "Decepticon" toy I've seen.

    I couldn't find a feedback/review page of this toy, but your feedback is helpful here.

    Thanks

    I almost bought it....the thing looks cool in package but not cool enough to justify $20.

    Maybe for $10-15, but not $20.

    And then after seeing peaugh's review I'm glad I passed on it.

    I'm also thinking $20 might be a little much. If he goes on sale I might get him. I think the negatives in his review weren't that bad. It is a gimmick toy. Thanks for the review though.

    I bought him last night for 14 bucks at Walmart. It's pretty nice, my biggest complaint is the hood won't stay down in car mode completely. That being said, it's a bit bigger than HA alt modes, but, I think it's pretty close and serves my purpose. In robot mode, he's nearly as big as ROTF Leader Optimus, so that too is pretty awesome.

    All in all, I enjoy it. I'd rather it didn't have the gimmick, and just allowed manual transformation but, it is what it is.
