    Used to have the Megatron and really wanted the Optimus...if this was a few years ago I'd be all over that auction...but I will be sitting this one out. Good luck to anyone making a run at them though.

    Yes, it is. If you click the link and go down, there's an ad for the show.

    We may not have gotten this Optimus repaint, but we DID get it eventually in that online-exclusive Generations gift set that had Reveal the Shield G2 Optimus in this paint job.

    Just click the "about me" part of the auction and Jordan Hembrough's email is listed.

    I wonder if we'll see him getting these guys in one of the next season of Toy Hunter..

    Very cool set. Don't know which deco I like better, but I do know that if we had gotten this Megatron deco in G2 that I would've bought the figure (even if it was called Archforce :p )


    But considering the asking price, I'm impressed that someone actually bid. Would be very surprised if he got outbid. I hope we get a nice gallery with high quality photo's from the eventual buyer.

    Optimus and Megatron should just bust out a ruler and measure already to settle once and for all who's the winner of the Cybertronian Wars. :D

    And Takara recently redeco'd Universe Legends Megatron in this deco too, which is the nearest I'll get to owning this!

    The G2 Hero Prime is one of my favorite Primes. Cool to see the pics, but no bids from me on this auction. Good luck to whoever takes it home.

    Why would they not actually show them off in robot mode?

    I mean the TF Wiki could benefit from having a photo of the toys that aren't just magazine cut outs. Hopefully who ever wins these will do that for the TF Wiki.

    hahah toy hunter. that guy buys too high and sells even higher when it comes to tf's on his show. hope he does better business off camera. the cynic in me wonders if its a half hour commercial to market the artificial inflation of toy prices. Then again if he sells this for more than the current bid of $4500... I guess its working.

    I rather like that Megatron deco, more so I dare say than either the actual G2 release or the later "Bludgeon" repaint.
