    it's because optimus is optimus...if you have any old optimus, then you aren't actually getting anything new...I personally have all the classics so far, cept for the 2nd wave, and i saw prime for 16.87 and just skipped him. I just don't feel that getting him will make me feel any better...maybe i'll feel worse because I just wasted that money when I should save it for something better like a jetfire or box of popeyes chicken...

    True, Prime, While cool, is something we've seen a few times. THIS Megatron is soething that hasn't been around in a long time. People seem to respond to that better.

    Too busy rooting through both to hopefully find Jetfire.

    A small percentage of it is from Megatron being bought twice by many so they'll have an extra to kitbash.

    Wait'll you all hear the NEW new case ratio. 2 Jetfires (YAY!) and 2 Optimus Primes. They aren't calling it Voyager wave three though. Something like Assortment 2 Update 1 (or wave 2.5 to us commoners).

    Scary. Prime's been piling up around here since the first of wave one showed up. I'm not looking forward to seeing what happens after the 2:1:1 cases run out.

    here there've not been a megatron seen in over a month, just a shelf full of primes, and no the assortments were 2:2, cause Jetfire's never made it here :(

    Bit off topic - but remember the rumors of Prime comming with a trailer?

    Could it be that initially, Prime was scheduled for a higher price point, and Jetfire and Megatron were to be two a case from the start ?

    I would love to see a shelf warmer Optimus or Megatron right about now.

    The last time i saw the Classics range here at retail was a few weeks ago. And i swear within the space of a day they rocked up and disappeared. I was very, very disappointed.
